About 40,000 demonstrators took to the street Saturday in the capital of Belgium as part of a global protest against a possible US- led war against Iraq.
It was the second such protest and police estimated the crowds were as big as one month ago.
It was reported that some politicians from the ruling rainbow coalition of Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt took part in the march.Over the past few months, the government has steadfastly opposed any move which could lead to war with Iraq.
As the protest built up at the railway station, some wore T-shirts with photos of Bush and the words "Wanted: Terrorist number One." Others had banners with: "No war for Oil."
