Volksverzet at IJzerwake 2021:

On August 29, members of Volksverzet from the Netherlands and Flanders came together to attend the IJzerwake in Ypres.

After meeting each other in the parking lot, they entered the grounds together, where the mass and ceremony took place at that time.

There they enjoyed the beautiful speeches and the choral singing. This was followed by a floral tribute, the flag parade and, as a closing, an oath of loyalty to Flanders. 

There were many people who expressed their interest in Volksverzet. We then invited them to join us for the lunch provided by some of the members.

After the meal, the members spread out over the meadow to visit the various shop stands or the performances of the IJzerfolk. To conclude the day, they took a group photo with all members and sympathizers. 

All in all it was a successful day! Our thanks also go to the organizers of IJzerwake and we hope to be present again next year.
