Get over the bridge before 14! Everywhere in the country we will cross the bridge on Saturday 26 June for at least 14 euros, and we encourage politicians to do the same. In Rotterdam we cross the Erasmus Bridge at 2 pm from the Marathon statue on Willemsplein. A surprise action follows halfway through. We end with a short stage program on the square at Vijf Werelddelen. Will you join us?
