Democrats Abroad Group - 2019 Women’s March in Munich – 19th January
What: 3rd Women’s March
When: Saturday, 19th January 2019
Time: 1400-1600 hours
Where: Meet at Siegestor/Geschwister-Scholl-Platz at 1400
Take a stand and march in Munich to affirm our values and speak up for those who cannot. In a similar vein to the 21 January 2017 and 20 January 2018 initiatives, the Munich Democrats Abroad Group will be joining with a number of Munich’s top international groups to again march in support of the global #MeToo movement.
We want to help show the current U.S. Administration that with a new Congress – with more women than ever – that it is time to focus on equality. Similar marches and vigils will again be taking place around the world as we join our fellow Americans in Washington D.C. to spur change and support the values we hold dear: tolerance, the Equal Rights Amendment and women's rights, religious freedom, facts, environmental protection, democracy, LGBT rights, black lives matter, science, peaceful co-existence, and the right to vote, to name a few.
Please save the date and plan to join us to make a constructive impact here in Munich. Last year’s march featured over 1,000 marchers. Let’s top that this year! There will likely be press on hand so spread the word. Our signs should be content and issue-driven and in good taste.
The starting point is Siegestor/Geschwister-Scholl-Platz (U-3 and U-6 Haltestelle Universität). We will then walk down the Ludwigstrasse to Odeonsplatz and then to Marienplatz.
