Brussels: Thousands of Healthcare Workers Protest Austerity

HeadlineMar 22, 2017

As many as 14,000 people took to the streets of Brussels Tuesday to protest austerity measures. The march included healthcare workers calling for better conditions. This is mental healthcare worker Bernard Decelle.

Bernard Decelle: “Honestly, we can’t take it anymore. We are really experiencing burnout. They don’t provide replacements when people get sick. We always have to be available when a colleague is sick, and we don’t get anything in return.”
