He has been coming here every afternoon for days, rain or shine, and this Monday is no exception. The temple has been full for 50 days of undocumented people on hunger strike, claiming to regularize their situation after feeling abandoned and invisible during a pandemic that Belgium experienced as one of the countries with the harshest and longest restrictions of ‘Europe during the second wave.
