Neues Forum Leipzig

The 'Neues Forum' [New Forum] was created on 10 September 1989 as the first official East-German Civic movement under the motto „The time is ripe – Breakup 89”. They were quickly able to organize local groups across the Republic. After 1990, in Leipzig, the New Forum did not fuse with the Bündnis 90/The Greens political party but instead continued to submit its own delegates to the city parliament.
