On Friday morning, demonstrators caused traffic disruptions at three border crossings: on the E17 in Rekkem, on the E19 in Meer and on the E314 in Maasmechelen. These are Armenian demonstrators who want to draw attention to the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.
“The demonstrators have entered the highway and are holding back traffic,” said Peter Bruyninckx of the Flemish Traffic Center. ‘In Rekkem in both directions, in Maasmechelen only those who want to enter the country, in Meer it would only be about those who want to drive to the Netherlands.’
The demonstrators in Maasmechelen Rekkem and Meer have now been removed from the motorway.
The protesters waved flags and banners. With their action they want to draw attention to the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan, over Nagorno-Karabakh, and call for European solidarity.
Since the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region flared up again in late September, 542 Armenians have been killed, including 31 civilians, according to Armenia. Azerbaijan, which does not release figures on military casualties, says it regrets 42 civilian deaths.
