What it is about?
On 23 June 2016, the United Kingdom announced its decision to leave the EU. We believe Brexit will weaken not only the United Kingdom but also Europe’s voice in the world. Furthermore it endangers the Irish peace agreement.
In the world of nationalists and populists, this day has become a day of celebration. But we refuse to be silenced on that day of all days. We’re going to speak up loud and clear for our idea of a new Europe! Now it’s our turn!
We stand firm against backwards, nationalist, and fact-denying politics: the kind that’s symbolised by the red bus of the Leave campaign. We’re putting our foot down. We’ve got bags of concrete proposals that will signpost the way to a democratic, sustainable, supportive Europe!
WHERE, WHEN, WHAT
Our “March for a New Europe” will kick off on 23 June at 11.45 at the Siegestor. When the clocks strike 12 o’clock, we’ll walk the Ludwigstraße up to Max-Joseph-Platz right in front of the Staatsoper. There will be pitches from people with visions for Europe, music, and much, much more...
WHAT WE WANT
We want Europe. But wanting Europe today means wanting a different kind of Europe. We want a Europe that is close to its citizens: a democratic Europe that is sustainable and full of solidarity.
Together, we’re making a stand for a European democracy that has its citizens as its heart. It’s finally time for us to get the social Europe we’ve been promised. We want a Europe where social politics secure the freedom of all citizens and makes sure everyone gets an equal shot in life.
Now is the time to take to the streets, raise our voices and make a stand for what we believe in.
Will you come along for the ride?
