Düsseldorf, Germany—Local UPF members have taken part in a rally by a coalition that traveled by bus through Germany to promote traditional marriage and family.

On September 11, 2017, the bright orange “freedom of speech” bus carrying members of the organizations Alliance for Marriage and Family, Demo for All, and CitizenGO stopped at a central square in the city of Düsseldorf.

About 40 supporters gathered to listen to speeches urging Germans “to stand up for marriage to remain marriage, for the recognition of only two sexes, against gender mainstreaming [and] sexualization … of children,” according to an announcement on social media.

Hedwig von Beverfoerde, the coordinator and speaker of Demo for All, and Eduard Pröls, leader of CitizenGO Germany, were the main speakers.

Werner Fehlberg, representing UPF, took the opportunity to state the significance of marriage and family from God's point of view, and this was greeted with a loud “Hallelujah” from a Christian participant.

A sizable number of counter-demonstrators came to voice their opposition to the rally. Although the pro-family demonstrators were outnumbered and shouted down, they were not discouraged.

Special thanks to the Düsseldorf police, who successfully made sure that those who were noisily opposing the family were kept at a distance.
