Brussels Cancels ‘March Against Fear’ Due to Security Concerns

Brussels Cancels ‘March Against Fear’ Due to Security Concerns

“The security of our citizens is an absolute priority.”

A sad irony is taking place in Brussels this weekend as a planned “March Against Fear” has been cancelled after local officials voiced safety concerns.

The AFP reports, via Yahoo News:

Organisers cancel Sunday’s Brussels attacks ‘March Against Fear’

The organisers of a “March Against Fear” planned for Sunday to mark the Brussels terror attacks said they had cancelled the event after the authorities asked them to do so because of security fears.

“We understand this request. The security of our citizens is an absolute priority. We join the authorities in proposing a delay and ask people not to come this Sunday,” the organisers said in a statement on Saturday.

The authorities earlier asked for the march to be put off, perhaps for several weeks, to allow the police to concentrate their resources on the investigation into the attacks which left 31 dead and 300 wounded.

“We invite the citizens tomorrow to not have this manifestation,” Interior Minister Jan Jambon said, speaking in English.

In an earlier statement, the organisers said the march planned for Sunday was meant to show that Brussels and the country at large refused to be intimidated by terrorism and that everyone stood together.

The memorial site is still growing, however:

It’s easy to understand why leaders are taking every possible precaution. USA Today reports that the Brussels airport will remain closed until Tuesday:

Brussels airport closed until at least Tuesday

Brussels airport officials say flights won’t resume before Tuesday as they assess the damage caused by twin explosions in the terminal earlier this week.

Authorities have wrapped up their investigation of the crime scene at the airport, and will allow engineers into the building to check its structural safety and information technology systems — and whether any damage can be repaired quickly.

The Brussels Airport Company said Saturday it is “currently studying a temporary solution to partially resume passenger flights, taking into account the new security measures” decided by the federal government.

Irony. The authorities were afraid that the March against Fear would turn into a March against THEM.

“We invite the citizens tomorrow to not have this manifestation,” Interior Minister Jan Jambon said, speaking in English.

The citizens continue to be sheep.

Option A: Free society no internal surveillance.

Option B: Bring in MENA rapefugees.

There is no Option C.

Let the police finish rolling up this large terrorist cell, THEN hold the rally.

    There will always be terrorists as long as you have a 25% MENA population with more coming all the time from the most violent parts.

    Stop the immigration. Deport the terrorists, families and associates. Deport the criminals. Then maybe you’ll be free of the terrorists.

I was flying through Heathrow when attacks happened. Security was lax. On the way back the lines were long and it was all about putting your tooth paste and shampoo in clear plastic bags.

Initially I wasn’t going to do that… I normally just leave my hygiene kit in my suitcase with the eff you attitude. These lines are the perfect target for terrorists.

In protest, I pulled out my hygiene effects and placed each item in its own separate tub to go through the scanner belt individually. If I had a magic marker handy I would have written “THIS IS NOT A BOMB” on each one.

You candy ass EU liberals have no problem offending me… but you can’t be bothered to deport the animals from your NO-GO Muslim neighborhoods and insist on importing MORE.

With this weapons level stupidity the EU deserves what they are getting as does America if we refuse to confront the evil in front of us.

In T-rump world, such a march would be considered “taunting”.

Really. Watch the video.

    But…but…but…..I thought he was going to force the military to do his bidding exactly by bombing and kidnapping muzzie women and kids and bring Iran to its knees and so forth. Could that have just been debate bluster? I mean, he said “Believe me” when he said all those things, so they must be true even though they’re grossly provocative, right? Right? ‘Cuz we’re going to ‘win’ so much on the ‘terrific’ things that we’ll become tired of winning, right? Sort of like Trump University real estate millions where he said they’d get tired of making so much money, right? Or was that the cardboard cutout of him that said that? I’m speaking of the cardboard cutout used for the Trump University students who were promised a photo taken with Trump personally and instead a cardboard cutout was used (just ‘splainin’ in case you didn’t know what I was talking about) for the photo.

    Humpatrump is the tauntingest mofo out there. One might say he would become the T-i-C, Taunter-in-Chief, if he’s ever elected.

If you’ll only stand up to terrorism when it is absolutely safe and convenient to do so, then the terrorists have already won.
