Vlaams Belang in anti-mosque protest

Vlaams Belang Temse anti-mosque protest

Het Nieuwsblad reports that Vlaams Belang has held a demonstration in Temse in East Flanders.

Displaying a banner featuring its favourite slogan, “Freedom or Islam”, the Belgian far-right party was protesting against a proposal to convert a disused former police station into a mosque for the local Moroccan community.

Vlaams Belang leader Filip Dewinter joined the protest and called for a freeze on the opening of any new mosques.
