About 5,000 gathered at Berlin's Gendarmenmarkt to stand for the European Union and its values of freedom and democracy. Right before the elections in the Netherlands and France where far right politicians are about to have a head to head race with democratic parties the joyful Demonstration wants to set a counterpoint.

The Netherlands were called to stay within the European Union. Also Flags from Poland and other countries could be seen.

The protest "Pulse of Europe" is organized by citizens. Flags and symbols of parties were not welcome.
