All the Brussels emergency services should be present at the demonstration on November 28 against violence against the police. The objective of the rescuers and firefighters of the capital is to denounce the attacks more and more frequent of which they are victims during their interventions in certain districts. “Launches of projectiles, ambushes, deliberately set fires… Firefighters are also increasingly the target of organized attacks in the Brussels-Capital Region”, denounces the union.
At the end of October, after a meeting of the staff of the Fire and Urgent Medical Aid Service (Siamu), with the SLFP and CGSP unions, the Brussels firefighters announced that they wanted to organize a strike in December. During the end-of-year celebrations, police forces will also be deployed in the barracks to offer an escort for each intervention, indicates Eric Labourdette, firefighter and permanent SLFP.
