Some anarchists participated in a diversion during the so-called
"Schuman parade" organised by the government and pro-EU parties

jubilation by shouting slogans such as: "we don't need factories,
we want balloons", and "it's going to be ok even without work".
Other groups like the Conservative Liberals ("Koliber") have dressed
themselves as bolshevik commissars and had EU and red flags

solitary anarchist commando split from the rest of the group
attacked them with brussels sprouts. Koliber perhaps learned

Like other libertarians, they support NAFTA and not the EU, which
for them equals with socialism.
Other groups protesting against EU included about 30 boneheads from 2
nationalist organisations, as well as some metal kids from
