DA rallies in Munich for Democratic Principles

Democrats Abroad in Munich, Germany came out on a cold and rainy night to send a message to Michael Pence during his visit to the Munich Security Conference this weekend.

On the evening of February 17th, DA members gathered around the Angel of Peace Monument in Munich to greet the US envoy as it made its way to restaurant  Käfer, where the annual Deutsche Amerikanisch Dinner is held for members of both Security Conference delegations.

The rally opened with the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance, and continued with chants and speeches. At least 100 strong came out in the stormy weather to stand up for what it means to be patriotic and to defend the values of the United States.

As one DAG Munich member said, “I feel less secure as an American abroad now than ever before because of our current administration. It's important that we send this message at a moment when international security policy is under discussion.”
