Over the next week, the Indignados will join forces with the local movement in Brussels to take part in the Agora Bruxelles, a week-long assembly of debates and workshops

Brussels - After walking for two and a half months, about 300 "indignados" arrived in Brussels this weekend to lobby the European institutions and protest against unemployment and welfare cuts. Although the original plan was for them to pitch their tents in Elizabeth Park in Brussels, Belgian police changed their mind at the last minute and ordered them to sleep at a university near by.
