WO/MEN S MARCH MUNICH
Deeply touched by the peace process in Israel in the autumn of 2016, singer and peace activist Yael Deckelbaum ( see video), wrote a song which would become a symbol of this movement for peace and the worldwide Women’s Marches. Now here in Munich, we are joining in the worldwide Women’s Marches. The starting point is Münchner Freiheit. The Münchner Friedenszug will follow the Leopoldstrasse to Professor-Huber-Platz. The Israeli singer Yael Deckelbaum will participate in the Munich march and will sing along with us.
The march is the expression of a global movement which focuses not on competition, but rather on connection, not exclusion but on humanity, not on intolerance but on freedom and diversity. It is about nothing less than changing our view and perspective, our coexistence with one another and life in the whole: Away from what separates us, to what connects us. This is nothing less than a small revolution. Come and be a part of it! Come and march in Munich on June 24th and bring all your friends with you.

Support Free Science on Earth Day, April 22
The March for Science was a series of marches and rallies held in Munich, Germany, Washington, D.C. and over 600 cities across the world on Earth Day, April 22, 2017. The march was a non-partisan movement to celebrate science and the role it plays in everyday lives.
The March for Science in Munich on April 22 ended with a closing rally at Siegestor, where various speakers spoke under the motto“For Free Science and Facts-Based Policy.” The organizers called upon scientists and citizens to take to the streets and jointly stand up for the values and endurance of evidence-based and free science. “With the March for Science, we want to focus attention on science and its achievements,” said Randolph Caldwell, who organized the Munich March for Science. “Everyone who is concerned about the careful distinction between verified facts and personal opinion is invited to take part in this worldwide demonstration for research and science.”
Martin Stratmann, President of the Max Planck Society in Munich explains: “We are living in a time when things which had been self-evident are suddenly being questioned. The freedom of science is being questioned internationally – this is also the case in Europe. And although science in the 21st century – in the face of urgent global challenges such as climate change, the preservation of biodiversity, or the fight against infectious diseases – is more important than ever, we feel that evidence-based knowledge is increasingly under pressure. This is unacceptable not only for science, but also for civil societies. We have a responsibility. The March for Science is the opportunity to make this responsibility visible”.
