Belgium -Action for more staff works -August 19, 2015

Workers at the federal asylum agency Fedasil have protested against the lack of sufficient staff. They stated they could no longer cope with the surging numbers of asylum seekers. The ACV trade union staged a protest action, using lemons to symbolise the workers’ position: they have been squeezed out. Protesters also distributed water and cake to refugees. Quite soon after it became clear that their action was not ignored as the announcement followed that Fedasil wants to recruit 130 extra staff ‘as soon as possible’.
