Europe: Refugees break out of camps, win solidarity

On Sunday 27 September, more than 15 000 people from all age hold, in the streets of Brussels, a demonstration of solidarity towards the refugees. It was initiated under the Civic Platform Support and Refugees Welcome organization

There was a petition that collected more than 10 000 signatures for a worthy reception of refugees throughout their procedure.
