    Background: AN ESTIMATED 25-THOUSAND TRADE UNIONISTS TODAY (MONDAY) DEMONSTRATED IN THE BELGIAN CITY OF CHARLEROI AGAINST RISING UNEMPLOYMENT IN THE AREA.

    THE DEMONSTRATION WAS ORGANISED BY BELGIUM'S TWO LARGEST TRADE UNIONS. DURING THE DEMONSTRATION NEARLY ALL FACTORIES IN THE CHARLEROI AREA CAME TO A STANDSTILL.

    THE PROTEST MARCH WAS HELD IN VERY COLD WEATHER. THE MARCHERS CARRIED BANNERS DRAWING THE ATTENTION OF AUTHORITIES TO THE SHORTAGE OF WORK IN THE AREA, AND DEMANDING THAT NEW INDUSTRIES BE ESTABLISHED IN CHARLEROI.

    THE DEMONSTRATORS SAID THAT THE SITUATION HAD BEEN MAINLY CAUSED BY A NUMBER OF MINES IN THE DISTRICT BEING CLOSED.

    THE DEMONSTRATION WAS ORDERLY, AND CONSISTED MAINLY OF A SILENT MARCH THROUGH THE STREETS OF CHARLEROI, THE MAIN CITY OF HAINHAUT PROVINCE.
