Last night, around 1500 people demonstratedin support of victims of sexual violence in the streets of Ixelles. “We are strong, we are proud, and feminists and radical and angry!“chanted the demonstrators.
The mayor of Ixelles then welcomed a delegation at the end of the event.
“The mayor has explained very well what he is doing and intends to do, beyond the decision to immediately close the two bars (for which he wants to put together a case that may possibly resist appeals) and the strengthening of the police presence requested by the girls and within the limits imposed by the legal procedures in place “, announced on her Facebook page, Monica Frassoni, the president of the Municipal Council.
The bars are not yet officially closed but Christos Doulkeridis is seriously considering it. “We are looking to constitute a solid legal case for a possible closure but nothing has been decided for the moment. We are awaiting the necessary information but given that an investigation is in progress it is not so obvious. In any case, it is in reflection “, he confided.
