The march not only highlighted opposition to the right-wing influence in parliaments but also criticized the mainstream political response, which has often seen centrist parties adopt stringent policies on immigration and integration. Participants stressed the importance of not standing idle as extremist views infiltrate political discourse and legislative action.

As the peaceful march concluded, organizers and participants alike expressed a renewed commitment to safeguarding inclusivity and diversity. They called for greater vigilance and proactive engagement from all sectors of society to ensure that Germany remains a bastion of freedom and tolerance amidst rising global conservativism.
