Participants ask the appropriate authorities to put in place policies to assist those whose lives are under threat as a result of difficulties or sufferings – actual or potential – and to rescind or amend all laws and judicial decisions contrary to full respect for human life.

Those who defend life walk together, irrespective of nationality or ethnic origin and without any discrimination. The March for Life is a citizens’ initiative and is independent of any political party.
Any form of violence, including verbal, will not be tolerated.
Loudspeakers and megaphones are not permitted. Participants march in silence in solidarity with those who have been deprived for ever of the right to free speech and the right to life.
All forms of clothing, provided they are decent and legal, are allowed. Clothing and symbols deemed provocative, indecent, offensive, or marking support for any political system, are prohibited.
The organisers have appointed two spokespersons (one French-speaking and one Dutch-speaking).
The March for Life is based on freedom of expression, which is guaranteed to each and every citizen under our democratic system and which violence of any kind can only undermine.
Anyone failing to give due respect to the police will be deemed in contravention of this charter and will automatically be excluded from the march.
