80,000 Attend March In Memory Of Joe Van Holsbeeck

Some 80,000 people take part in a silent walk, Sunday 23 April 2006, near the Central Station of Brussels, where 17-year-old Joe Van Holsbeeck was killed last 12 April for a MP3 player. A silent march in Brussels to protest against urban violence and honor a youth killed for his digital music player attracted 80,000 demonstrators, police said. The demonstrators, many of whom came with their families, made their way in a tight procession along the Boulevard du Jardin Botanique to the city's Palais de Justice.
