    SYNOPSIS: In the Belgian capital of Brussels on Sunday hundreds of demonstrators gathered to march in support of the Palestinian people.

    The march was organised by four groups -- including the Unions of Syrian and Lebanese students studying in Belgium. They marched to show their solidarity with the Palestinians and also to show their displeasure with the Belgian Government.

    They say the Government has voted against the rights of the Palestinian people in the United Nations.
