Rock the Union Tour aims to raise awareness about the need to participate in the European Parliaments’ elections in May 2014 and to vote in favor for a common future.

The tour will start on January 15th 2014 and will end on the last day of the European Parliaments’ election on May 25th 2014. Rock the Union Tour will visit 123 cities in 28 EU Member States (37.000 km in total!). During this tour, statements from the citizens of the European Union will be collected. These statements are 30 seconds long and about what you think should change in Europe; what you wish for in the future or what you are afraid of. After collecting as many statements as possible from every city, these statements will be handed over to the European Parliament in the first session after the elections between July 1st and July 3rd 2014. Besides collecting statements, you can come to the tour to ask questions and discuss the EU.

Rock the Union Tour started a fundraising campaign to support the tour through the European Union. They need 18.000 euros in total to finance the tour, mainly for buying a minibus, fuel, food, mobile internet to write the blog, ferry tickets, flight tickets to Cyprus, information material and technical equipment. The tour will come to your city when the support has reached an amount of a minimum of 150 euro. You can find which cities Rock the Union tour will visit in your country, on the website  or on Facebook . Share this initiative with your friends and make this happen so the tour can come to your city!

When you support the Tour, you will receive a reward depending on the amount of support: a picture postcard of a stranger, a signed Rock the Union T-Shirt, a Rock the Union soundtrack limited edition vinyl LP, a Rock the Union logbook or a Rock the Union road movie.
