In commemoration of 8 March, International Women’s Day, groups of men and women from towards the European Commission and proclaim that the veil is a manifestation of political Islam and a symbol of the oppression of women.

The march towards Brussels and the European Commission building will begin on Friday 2 March from Germany.

Our march is against the veil. It is the voice of protest of millions of women against this symbol of slavery. We demand the banning of child veiling as well as the banning of the veil in all work places and social centres.

Join us in Brussels to express your opposition to the veil and anti-women Islamic laws. Show your support for the widespread women’s liberation and equality seeking movement in Iran.
