S&D MEPs demonstrate in solidarity with refugees

Brussels. Ahead of the European Council this week, a demonstration in solidarity with refugees took place today in Place Jean Rey. Under the slogan of "No more walls in Europe – #EUWakeUp" and together with progressive forces from all over Europe, the S&D Group in the European Parliament called on heads of state and government to stop building more walls but to instead solve the refugee and migration crisis through a joint European approach based on solidarity among countries and with people. The event was held in the presence of Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament. As a symbolic action, a wall of shame has been built in the square and destroyed to show solidarity with the hundreds of thousands of people fleeing the war to find refuge in Europe.
