#MarchForEurope – Pointing out the Way in Berlin and Rome on March 25th, 2017

We warmly invite all to Berlin’s Bebelplatz at 11:45am and Rome’s Piazza della Bocca della Verità at 11:00am on the 25th of March to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Rome Treaties and to demon­strate:

For more than two years a populist, euroskep­tical and xenophobic minority has managed to capture a dispro­por­tion­ately large amount of attention within the media while the majority of Pro-Europeans has long remained silent. In the meantime, supporters of the project of European integration have found a loud voice and are making themselves heard with the initiative #Pulse­ofEurope, which currently takes to the streets every Sunday at 2:00pm in 46 German and 12 other European cities.

Emotional enthu­siasm for Europe—beyond all necessary academic debates—will come to an initial peak on the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Rome Treaties. On Saturday the #March­ForEurope will take place in Berlin and Rome with the desire to show our colors for Europe. Initiated in Berlin by the Europa-Union Berlin and in Rome by the Union of European Feder­alists, partic­i­pants wish to give a clear sign in front of the Brandenburg Gate and the Arch of Constantine that nation­alism is a dark and gloomy past and that Europe is our future.

Berlin

The demon­stration in Berlin will begin on March 25th at 11:45am at Bebelplatz and will move from there to the Brandenburg Gate, where the final address will take place at 1:00pm. The latest infor­mation is available on the website of the Europa-Union Berlin, where you will also find the call for partic­i­pation.

Rome

The demon­stration in Rome will begin with a gathering on March 25th at 11:00am at the Piazza della Bocca della Verità and will end at 2:30pm in front of the Arch of Constantine. The Symposium “Rebuilding Vision, Re-gaining Trust, Re-launching Unity” will take place before at 8:00am.
