Almost 2,000 people took to the streets here on Saturday in a demonstration in support of refugees' rights, public broadcaster RTBF reported.
The march in the Belgian capital was part of a coordinated day of action in 100 cities across Europe, from Albania to Norway, organised by citizens' rights groups calling for a safe passage for refugees seeking protection in Europe.
Doctors Without Borders and Amnesty International were among the groups represented, RBTF reports, adding refugees also took part in the demonstration.
Demonstrators carried survival blankets along the route of the march, which will be sent to the Greek islands, an entry point for refugees into European Union.
