A movement is born
On June 21, 2009, the Republican Constitutional Movement (DRGB) was born. The founding general assembly founded the movement in order to generate debate on the Danish constitution and monarchy. Up to this, the debate had raged over the succession law that would allow that the throne be passed on from the firstborn regardless of gender.
According to critics, it was absurd to talk about equal rights in an institution like the Royal Family and that the law surpassed a much greater discussion on the monarchy and the constitution. The law was close to not being adopted and brought the debate of the monarchy’s role to life.
The general assembly attracted a lot of media attention. It is the public debate that is so essential to the Republican Constitutional Movement, and it is therefore important that the interest does not run dry. The debate is our main task.
There has been and still exists many other groups and websites that argue for a constitutional revision and abolition of the monarchy, but it has not previously been a united front and that is exactly what this movement is for.
We will work for the movement to reach out to all citizens in the country, regardless of political persuasions, to foster a debate on a new and modern constitution by the people and for the people.
- a modern constitution created and written by the people
- a constitution that guarantees freedom and basic rights
- a constitution in which power and special status are not inherited
We do this by working on constitutional issues, independently of existing political constellations.
We are in no way militant, but we are nice and funny people with the will to change status quo!
