On January 20th Americans the world over and across the political spectrum will be marking the inauguration of the 45th president of the United States—many of them deeply concerned that some of our core values are under threat.
In Hamburg, we will be showing our solidarity with Americans at home and letting our next government know that we are unequivocally committed to civil discourse, the rule of law, and the well-being of all citizens of the United States and the planet with a peaceful, non-violent march and vigil:
We the People: A March for American Democracy Saturday, January 21st , 2017
Starting point: Hamburger Rathaus, Rathausmarkt 1, 20095 Hamburg, 4 pm Ending point: U.S. Consulate General in Hamburg, Alsterufer 27/28, 20354 Hamburg
If you are an American citizen living in northern Germany, please join us! We encourage you to bring candles and posters bearing any of the following approved slogans: No Human is Illegal; Women’s Rights are Human Rights; Black Lives Matter; Science is Real; Love is Love; Kindness is Everything, or any other positive message of support for humane and democratic principles.
The march will conclude with a short vigil and information on how you can become active in preserving American democracy. Come rain or shine!
