- from wiki:  "The White March (French: Marche Blanche; Dutch: Witte Mars) was a demonstration in Brussels on October 20, 1996 after serial killer and criminal Marc Dutroux was arrested. The demonstrators wanted better protection for children and a better functioning justice system that could investigate the Dutroux Affair independently... October 20 about 300,000 people (estimates range from 275,000 to 325,000, around 3% of Belgium's population) marched through Brussels"
Background (needs to be organized)
From Voat user @Sentastixc:
You’ve probably noticed Dutch/Belgian stories have been overrepresented, against the relatively small population of these countries.
The Dutch elite has had a pedophile problem for very long. I think earlier on they didn't always kill the children. So, many eyewitness accounts and victims have come forward over the years.
there are more examples of eyewitness testimony, like Anne Marie van Blijenburgh
And then there are the multiple witnesses is the infamous Dutroux case
And in the Demmink case
The allegations made by multiple people are never addressed. Our media pays no attention and the state prosecutor just acts like these people are insane and completely ignores them. There is no separation of power left in this country. The judiciary has been fully absorbed by the legislative and administrative branches.
On the surface, it seems everyone in the country thinks it's normal that there are people publicly accusing our royalty and former prime ministers of these crimes, and that these accusations have never been formally denied. Much like is happening now in America, we have been in that perpetual state, where nobody 'official' or 'on tv' ever addresses this issue.
But don’t be discouraged by this, because America is not Europe. Remember that there live more people in the NY metropolitan area than the Netherlands. For that reason, among others, our establishment is much more entrenched. The elite is socially very immobile, as there is only a small linguistic space for them to operate.
As you may well know, university frats are where the initiations into the occult begin. We got a handful of old, established universities supplying their people to virtually every key position in government and a large majority of all business boards.
There is no free market, as government spending stands at 44.9% of GDP and very extensive regulation form huge barriers to start-ups and entrepreneurship. Many details of public life are controlled and regulated too.
Meanwhile, Dutch academia is thinking up rational explanation for the allegations.

- 27Sept1996  - (Dutroux) Belgium arrests tied to Iran-Contra scandal by Dean Andromidas - EIR (Executive Intelligence Review) Volume 23, Number 29 27Sept1996, International Section
- "Belgium has been rocked for the last month by the uncovering of the pedophile ring responsible for the murder of four young girls, and by the arrest of 20 people in connection with the 1991 killing of senior Belgian politician Andre Cools. But this is only the tip of the iceberg of an extensive political criminal complex in Belgium, which can be described as the Belgian equivalent of Italy's infamous "Propaganda-2" scandal in the early 1980s. Indications are emerging that this political-criminal complex has international connections, including to the Iran-Contra operations of George Bush and Oliver North during the 1980s... Within two weeks, over 30 people, including police and judicial authorities, were arrested... Among these arrested, was Jean Michel Nihoul, who, operating out of an office on the prestigious Avenue de Louis in downtown Brussels, coordinated the financial side of both the pedophile ring, as well as a stolen car ring, with which Detroux was also discovered to have been involved. Nihoul was said to have financed seven properties in Belgium from which Detroux operated. He also had a villa somewhere in the Caribbean. Some of the proceeds from these and other operations, found their way into foreign bank accounts and real estate...Nihoul had been a target of investigation as early as 1973, for financial fraud, money laundering, prostitution, and other crimes... At this time, Nihoul was close to right-wing politicians of the Christian Socialist Party, whose activities were tied to the World Anti-Communist League. In the 1980s, he was involved in an ecological cult called Eco Vie, whose leader, Jan Williams,. a Canadian who founded the cult in France, was thrown out of the country when the group was found to be a cover for criminal activity, including pedophilia... 1991 investigation, had identified the same suspects now under arrest, and had been led at the time by the same investigative judge who is now overseeing the Marc Detroux pedophile case... While the official line of the government is that the pedophile case and the Cools murder are only "very indirectly" linked, nonetheless, many of those arrested in both affairs were: 1) leading members of the Socialist Party in Belgium's Wallonia region, and 2) members of the Masonic lodge in Liege... According to Belgian press reports, an earlier attempt to investigate the Detroux pedophile ring had been blocked by corrupt judicial authorities, who feared it might lead to the so-called 'Mendez case'. Mendez; a director of FN, was killed in 1986; in the same year as a spate of Iran-Contra-related murders. 'It is believed that Mendez specialized in producing false "end-user-certificates"; that would give phony destinations for weapons actually bound for Iran and Iraq... Despite attempts to separate the Cools and the Augusta corruption cases from the pedophile case, one British arms dealer told EIR, "I don't think this pedophile affair is going to be confined to Belgium. Remember, there are at least two leading British politicians who had been involved in arms deals and are pedophiles." Although names were not mentioned, he said that at least one of them was currently holding a very high position in the European Commission in Brussels."
