BRUSSELS - Vlaams Belang figureheads Filip Dewinter and Frank Vanhecke plan to take part in the banned demonstration against the "Islamisation of Europe" on the Schumanplein in Brussels.

"We will look at what the situation is, but our plan is to join the protest," says party chairman Vanhecke, who, as member of the European Parliament, will also be receiving the organisation's list of demands.

"It is not our demonstration, but we sympathise with the aims. I also expect that quite a few of our people will be there."

On its website the party distances itself from "marginal and obscure neo-Nazi groups that might try to steal the spotlight."
