Kleine Brogel Weapons Inspection

On February 21, 1999, a group of Belgian Members of Parliament, artists, leaders of social groups and activists attempted a citizen weapons inspection of a NATO base at Kleine Brogel. It is believed that B-61 nuclear weapons are deployed on the base and operated by the US Munition Support Squadron. Following a refusal by base Commander Buyse to allow the inspectors inside the base, activists cut a hole in the fence and over one hundred citizen inspectors entered. A number were attacked by dogs including MPs Patrick van Krunkelsven (President of the Flemish Regionalist Party) and Johan Malcorps. Alcorps required hospital treatment. 120 people were arrested and released.
