Nearly 77% of Belgium's population has been fully vaccinated, and 53% have had a booster dose

A 25% drop.

"Fully vaccinated" people are joining the resistance.

The more they turn the screws the stronger we become.

Police said the protest in the Belgian capital drew an estimated 50,000 people, some traveling from France, Germany and other countries to take part.

The minority is so small they need to drag people from other countries to take part in the protests.

they need to 

Who is they?

drag people from other countries

We’re not in the 18 century. Less than 3 hours by train from Paris.

Why so negative?

Protest organizers. Makes sense.

Why so negative?

Not negative. Quite the opposite. People traveling from abroad to take part in protests shows the support domestically to be lower than what many want to think. I think that’s great.

Can you name them or you just guessing?

I suspect they were protesting the mandates, rather than the actual "vaccines".

Video showed black-clad protesters attacking a building used by the European Union’s diplomatic service, hurling projectiles at its entrance and smashing windows.

Sounds like agents provocateur sent by the authorities to give them an excuse to clamp down on the legit protests.

I did. Protest organizers. That’s naming them. But hey, I’d like burning bronco bush to name those that refuse the boosters thus leading to the “25% drop” he is inferring. Can you join me in requesting he does that?

25% of Belgium's population is close to 3 million people.

As per the article, 3 million Belgian's took the 2nd vaccine but have declined the booster.

Sorry, I can't name them all. but they have had enough.

Where in the article does it say they have declined the booster exactly?

so you have no idea if “they” had to recruit from other countries, you’re just guessing. Got it. It’s possible, well highly probable if you rely on the MSM, that you also have no idea that there are protests all across Europe.

Lol. Perhaps they didn’t “recruit” from other countries, however it’s clear the numbers include people from other countries. As for the rest of your comment, it’s clear that there are protests all across Europe (yes, even in MSM this is reported. Even this article… gosh are you arguing about an article you haven’t read?), but when people are crossing borders to amplify numbers it’s also clear the numbers aren’t as large as what the protesters want you to think.

How idiotic, the viruses speak with one unified voice so to say, while the humans fight each other and even attack each other lungs more by tear gas attacks. The most stupid animal on this planet is that kind we belong to, that’s for double sure.

"Fully vaccinated" people are joining the resistance.

The resistance against what? if people are adequately protected without the need of a booster then they are just acting according to the best available information, not against it.

I suspect they were protesting the mandates, rather than the actual "vaccines".

For that they would still need evidence that prove vaccinating means no benefit. The moment the vaccines have an effect protecting people (and reducing transmission) the mandates become valid to support public health and the right of people not to be subjected to extra risks for irrational reasons.

Sounds like agents provocateur sent by the authorities to give them an excuse to clamp down on the legit protests.

Sounds much more like irrational reactions, which is something that is shared with rejecting safe and effective vaccines, so not surprising at all.

Because even fully vaccinated people know the vaccine doesn’t protect others, only yourself. if you even get Covid to begin with,

its nothing about protecting others. So even vaccinated people feel that’s a personal choice once the “do it for others” was found to be false.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

We have the highest vaccinated rate of the pandemic. Also the highest transmission rate.

please explain how the vaccine “reduces” transmission again?
