In 1985 representatives of Belgium, France, West Germany, Luxembourg
and Netherlands signed the Schengen-Agreement. The ceremony was at
Princess Marie-Astrid boat on the river Moselle near the town of
Schengen, where the territories of France, Germany and Luxembourg
meet. Systematic internal border controls were abolished within the
area and later in most parts of Europe.
Schengen stands as a symbol for the freedom of movement.
Unfortunately, these border controls had been reinforced partially
regarding the borders between France, Italy, Austria, Germany, Denmark
and Sweden as a false national fake solution to the migration crisis.
Former generations have achieved these European benefits and freedoms
in a struggle. We want to protect them from short-sighted, irrational
nationalistic policies! Therefore we want to take a stand for the
values of Schengen and the European spirit of facing challenges
together and not against each other. We want to do that by a march
crossing two borders and three countries.
The Schengen march will take place on March 16th and will start at 1
pm in the French village of Apach at Hotel de Ville / Mairie. We will
walk to the border of the village to its neighbouring village Perl in
Germany. Crossing the border there we will walk around a kilometre
through Germany. Then we will cross the Mosel bridge arriving in
Schengen in Luxembourg. There we will have the end rally and final
speeches close to the European museum and Europe monument.
