September 13th, Brussels. Around four thousand Belgian health care workers gathered to protest against the chronic underfunding of Belgium’s health care system, in the center of the city. This demonstration was originally planned for March but delayed due to the pandemic. The demonstration was led by health care workers collective 'La Santé en Lutte', which was created a year ago but emerged as a vocal critic of current health policies during the pandemic, policies which they say aggravated the crisis and weakened Belgium’s capacity to respond to it.
