What you doing on 29 April? EU republicans on rise amid British royal wedding hysteria

With these arguments in mind, the republican campaign is not only hoping to see some of its new-found supporters on the streets on 29 April, but it may get some of the people out of the pubs or even off their sofas. Support is not only expected from people in the UK either; on 30 April the alliance of European republic movements, created in 2010, is meeting in London to launch their plans for a monarchy-free Europe. The wedding may be costing the UK tax-payers several million pounds, but if it leads to more people looking to escape the hysteria and a resulting growing awareness around the significance of a monarchy in Europe today, it could be worth every penny.
