Firefighters in Belgium took action to improve working conditions

Firefighters from different cities of Belgium gathered at the intersection between Arts-Loi Street and Regent Boulevard in the center of the capital, Brussels.

The demonstrators gathered in the company of fireworks and whistles, significantly disrupting the city's traffic since morning hours.

The demonstrators demanded that the retirement age, which is 67, be brought earlier, taking into account the depreciation.

Pointing out that they are increasingly exposed to violence during their field work, the demonstrators complained of the lack of personnel as the number of interventions increased.

The demonstrators met with Belgian Federal Minister of the Interior Annelies Verlinden.
