Many thousands of steel employees and their employers from at least 17 European member states gathered in Brussels on the 15 February 2016 to march in protest at the alleged damaging dumping of steel products from China, which was seen as wiping out jobs across the EU and violating the principles of free and fair trade. They also protested against the premature granting of Market Economy Status (MES) to China.

The European Commission had decided on 12 February 2016 to open new anti-dumping investigations on China's steel products.
