Riot police deployed a water cannon against an estimated 100,000 anti-austerity protesters outside Brussels Nord train station, Wednesday, with violent clashes erupting in the Belgian capital. The demonstrators, there to condemn austerity measures and welfare cutbacks recently introduced by the government, responded by throwing rocks, with some participants creating make-shift fires. Several protesters were detained in the clashes with reports of serious injuries among protesters. The demonstration was organised by Belgium's three largest unions, who spoke out against austerity, slamming Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel for what the protesters consider anti-worker, pro-business policies. The unions are set to hold a train strike, Friday, with disruptions to Eurostar and Thalys rail services expected.
