The Camp legal team is collecting complaints to file against the police after hundreds of arbitary arrests were made. See http://www.noborderbxl.eu.org/?lang=en for details.

On Saturday, October 2, a big demo brought together nearly 1,500 participants on arrival at the Bourse, Brussels city centre (http://bxl.indymedia.org/articles/257)
