Around 4.500 people took part in Brussels in a "socialist and anti-fascist march" against the rise of the extreme right in Europe.

Despite the rain, protesters marched through the streets of the Belgian capital to the European Parliament, at the call of the Anti-Fascist Coordination of Belgium, a coalition of two dozen organizations.

"According to the Belga agency, at the entrance to the building where the premises of the extreme right-wing, separatist, Flemish party Vlaams Belang are located, anarchist signs were drawn, smoke bombs and garbage containers were thrown on the facade", reported "N1".

The European Parliament elections held from June 6 to 9 across the EU were marked by the rise of far-right parties, particularly in France and Germany.

In Belgium, the right-wing and center-right parties won the most votes in the parliamentary elections held on June 9.
