Trucker protests: European "Freedom Convoy" demonstrators gather near EU headquarters in Brussels

Global News in Canada shows that a small crowd of protesters from the so-called "Freedom convoy" gathered outside of the European Union headquarters in Brussels on Monday, in opposition to COVID-19 restrictions and vaccine mandates.

The protesters, dubbed by some as a "European Freedom Convoy," modelled after similar protests in Canada, said they had one demand: "give us our freedom back."

Another crowd also gathered at the car park at the Heysel exhibition centre outside of Brussels, with people from France, Belgium and Germany waving flags and calling for the lifting of all restrictions. The crowd had hoped for a blockade of the EU capital, but with police checks imposed on city roads with police targeting foreign licence plates, the blockade never materialized.
