In the run-up to the 2013 federal elections, twenty leading members of the SPD and of the Green parties drew up a manifesto for a red-green ‘changing of the guard’ at federal level, entitled “Zeit, dass sich was bewegt” (Time for things to start moving). Building on this declaration, Kerstin Andreae MP, Hubertus Heil MP, Peter Siller and Dr. Tobias Dürr initiated a red-green mobilisation campaign. It was implemented by volunteers close to Das Progressive Zentrum. In less than 12 weeks the campaign had more than 10 000 online supporters and implemented numerous offline events. Though the campaign did not achieve its aim of a change of government, it did manage to connect thousands of people interested and active in politics, and from all over Germany, in a sustainable, cross-party way.
