When Belgium's firefighters were threatened with a government attempt to raise their retirement age, they fought back using the tools of their trade.

According to Russia Today, "Several hundred firemen broke through police cordons and hosed down the prime minister's office. The men, dressed in full gear, were smiling as they directed the water at the building…and the small bunch of police officers huddled in front of it."

As the police futilely attempted to huddle behind their Plexiglas shields, the firefighters turned from hoses to fire extinguishers and blanketed the officers with a cloud of white foam.
