Thousands of steel workers from across the European Union gathered in Brussels on Monday to protest "dumping" of cheap Chinese imports on the EU market, and to call on the European Commission to take action. The march went through the European district of the Belgian capital, where the European Commission and other EU institutions are situated, demanding the EU protects the industry against external competitors. European steel workers accuse China of using illegal export subsidies and selling products below their real production cost, which poses a threat to steel industry-related jobs within the EU.
