Oh the irony. Je Suis Coward.
The West had better man up, and soon.
“Brussels ′March Against Fear′ cancelled over security concerns,” DW, March 28, 2016:
Following official warnings, organizers in Brussels have postponed a planned solidarity rally. European nations have boosted security since the Brussels bombings, with Germany and Belgium arresting several suspects.
Belgian Interior Minister Jan Jambon on Saturday urged people to refrain from participating in Sunday’s planned “March Against Fear” rally, citing the current threat level, limited “police capacity” and the need to prioritize the investigation into the bombings, according to Belga news agency.
At a joint press conference with Jambon, Brussels Mayor Yvan Mayeur said authorities were stretched thin by ongoing investigations following Tuesday’s attacks across Brussels that left more than 30 dead and hundreds injured.
“Let us allow the security services to do their work and that the march – which we, too, want to take part in – be delayed for several weeks,” the mayor told reporters.
Following the press briefing, the rally’s organizers announced the event’s cancellation in a statement.
“The security of our citizens is an absolute priority,” the organizers said.
“Consequently, we completely join the authorities in their proposal to postpone to a later date. We thus ask citizens not to come this Sunday to Brussels,” the statement added.
The announcement comes as Belgium and other European countries ramp up security across the continent in the wake of Tuesday’s attacks.
