Authorization for a camp of the Indignants in Brussels refused. German European Member of Parliament, Gabriele Zimmer calls Belgian authorities to support the Indignant´s camp.

Only three days before the arriving of international marches to Brussels, Philippe Pivin, mayor of the Koekelberg Area in Brussels, sent by email his rejection of accepting a camp in the park of Elisabeth (Simonis), without giving any convincing raisons.

Due to this decision, Euro-MP of the parlament group GUE/NGL Gabriele Zimmer sent a letter to the city of Brussels, asking to take back the rejection, so that Agora Brussels could be hold in best conditions.
In only two hours, 37 Euro-MP joined this call.

After 1700 Km afoot, coming from Madrid, Barcelona and Toulouse, the marches of the Indignant Movement will be arriving Brussels on the 8th October.

During the next week, other hikes coming from Nederland, Germany and the United Kingdom will be joining the Agora Brussels and taking part in the popular assemblies, debates and working groups. Other Indignants from Spain and other parts of Europe will be joining by train, bus, car and bike.

All in all, People originally from more than 30 countries will be united.
A global demonstration will closure this week. On the 15th October in Brussels, but also worldwide in more than 300 cities, Indignants call for demonstration.

Dear Collegues,
I guess most of you have heard that the “Indignados movement” will arrive in Brussels these days. The Indignados are a movement, which originated in Spain this spring. Within few month their peaceful and democratic protest against austerity measures and for social justice has been shared by many people worldwide.
They are planning several public meetings and events here in Brussels to discuss the current social and political challenges of Europe from the 8th to 15th October. ( 
We heard from the organizers that the city of Brussels has taken back the permission to camp in the Park Elisabeth in Simonis, although it was granted before.
Besides the fact that denying them a campsite will create inconvenience for activists and neighbors it cannot be the intention of the city administration to create the anger of people that merely exercise their right for peaceful protest.
So we drafted a protest letter to the city of Brussels and I would be grateful if you would support this letter with your signature.  
As it’s a quite urgent matter, please let us know by today 6pm if you would be ready to sign the letter enclosed.
Thank you for your support.
Best regards,
Gabi Zimmer
Chers collègues,

J’imagine que la plupart entre vous a entendu que les “Indignados” arriveront ces jours à Bruxelles. Les “Indignados” sont un mouvement né au printemps de cette année en Espagne. En à peine quelques mois, cette protestation pacifique et démocratique contre les mesures d’austérité et de justice sociale, a été partagée par de nombreuses personnes dans le monde entier.

Du 8 au 15 octobre, le mouvement des “Indignados” va organiser des réunions et des manifestations publiques ici à Bruxelles pour discuter des défis actuels, autant sociaux que politiques de l’Europe. ( 

Nous avons entendu des organisateurs que la ville de Bruxelles a annulée l’autorisation de camper dans le parc Elisabeth à Simonis, même si elle avait bien été accordée avant.  Outre les désagréments pour les militants et le voisinage, il n’est certainement pas dans les intentions de l’administration de la ville, de faire naître la colère chez des gens qui ne se contentent que d’exercer leur droit de manifestation pacifique.
Ci-joint vous trouvez une lettre adressée à la ville Bruxelles. Je serrai reconnaissante si vous pourriez aussi signer cette lettre.
Comme c´est très urgent, merci de nous signaler jusqu’ à 18 heures ce soir si vous aller signer la lettre.
Merci beaucoup,
Gabi Zimmer
