A few dozen people protest against earlier closing hours of cafés | Bruges | Near

Benny Proot Wooden crosses were planted in the Astrid Park.

A few Bruges café owners and dozens of customers campaigned against the earlier closing time on Sunday afternoon. “That is a disaster for many cafés,” explains Jordi Bamps, manager of the metal café Walhalla.

The activists gathered on the Burg and walked from there to the Astrid Park. A few bar owners signed up, but it was mainly customers and sympathizers who were present. All together, about sixty people came along. They all had a wooden cross in their hand. According to the initiator, each cross symbolizes a catering business that is doomed. “The mandatory closure at 11 pm, but also the lack of compensation for the owners is a catastrophe,” says Jordi Bamps. I open at 8 pm and people don’t come in until 11 pm … ”In the end, the protest went quietly: the wooden crosses were placed under a tree in the Astrid Park.
