Thousands of demonstrators gathered outside the Palace of Justice in Brussels on Sunday to protest racism and police brutality following the death of George Floyd.
Assembled under the motto ‘Black lives matter,’ activists expressed solidarity with the black Americans who lost their lives at the hands of police officers and remembered the violent cases in Belgium and names of the victims.
The riot police unit deployed water cannon in an attempt to disperse protesters, as after the demonstrators left the Poelaert Square to march across the city, the peaceful rally turned violent. The Brussels police department reported over 150 arrests following street clashes and looting of local shops.
