150 ‘concerned’ Grimbergenaren in lichtstoet for warm community
Grimbergen 150 Grimbergenaren have just before the installation of the new city council a silent lichtstoet held to advocate for a warm and supportive community. She is concerned about the lack of social accents in the bestuursakkoord of the right-wing coalition of Open Vld, N-VA and especially Innovation which they refer to as ‘Vlaams belang light. The installation itself went smoothly, all highlighted in Green on the end expressly the message of the protesters.

Promptly at 18 hours left lichtstoet to the car park of the Prinsenbos. ‘Armed’ with tea lights, candles, torches, or just the light from their mobile phones got about 150 Grimbergenaren via a detour along the Speelbroek and Pastor Woutersstraat and then along the Prinsenstraat to the town hall. They carried a number of banners bearing the " Solidarity knows no borders’ and ‘Heart for the refugee’. Also several politicians stepped on, not coincidentally, of the parties in the opposition end up. Among others, party leader Eddie Boelens of Green, Sp.a-leader Gerlant Van Berlaer and CD&V’Paul Hermans were of the party.

Organizer Frank Van den Block, that the head pulled out, wanted to do not know of a political statement. “I am very happy with this turnout. It even surpasses my expectations. We are taking steps not against someone or against the new board. Polarizing is definitely not the intention. We just want to make clear what we do want and that is a supportive and warm community.” One of the motivations for the organisation of the event was that he there are too few found in the bestuursakkoord.

On the steps of the town hall came the peaceful procession to end. Without high-flown speeches or big words.
