History of Gremium Motorcycle Club
- Hits: 7837
"Respect and Honor are not values earned by right or by membership, but facing life with dignity, with the head held high... without hiding behind lies and fears. We must fight if we're convinced of our own ideas and if we're aware of our actions, nothing is impossible. Fight to find out who you are." [G.F.F.G.]
We are one of the leaders among European Motorcycle Clubs (MC) and the biggest MC in Germany. In 2012 we celebrated our 40th year of history and tradition.
Founded in 1972 in Mannheim (Germany), Gremium MC is an ever changing reality.
Our brothers have opened Chapters all over Europe, from Germany to Italy, Poland, the Canary Islands, Slovenia and Bosnia-Herzegovina to Austria and Spain. The great challenge today is the whole world, with the opening of new Chapters in Turkey,Thailand, Chile and Venezuela.
Gatherings among international Chapters happen often and enable us to maintain close relations of brotherhood.
We are a community of bikers who embodies the membership and brotherhood as a lifestyle. As a matter of fact, Gremium means brotherhood.
The number 7 appears frequently: the word Gremium begins with the seventh letter of the alphabet, "G", and it's composed of seven letters. By happenstance even our founders (First Members) were seven.
We stand as a big part of the German MC scene sice 1972. It should be said that we were also one of the founding members of the Committee of Defense of the Rights of Germans Motorcyclists, the Bikers and Rockers, the Union Biker in 1986.
In 1978, Gremium MC and MC Bones together organized a gathering of all motorcycle clubs in a meeting called "Presi-Rally" in Mannheim, and in the years1983, 1986 and 1995 we were the only organizers of the German MC Council.
Until the mid-90s Gremium MC has played an important role mainly in the south-west of Germany, before spreading his domain to the entire country.
Starting from the late '90s, when several smaller groups begun to join, Gremium MC extended towards the south-east. In the meanwhile, the firsts Chapters were born outside of Europe (Caracas, Venezuela, and Pattaya, Thailand). The so called Bad Seven MC became the official supporter group. Since 2010 some Support Crews (support crews), called the Black Seven Division, were born, too.
Today Gremium MC is present with its Chapters throughout Europe, from Germany to Italy, Poland, the Canary Islands, Slovenia and Bosnia-Herzegovina in Spain and Austria.
The big challenge now is the whole world. It is proven by the opening of new Chapters inTurkey, Thailand,Chile and Venezuela.
The History of Gremium MC Italy
We arrived in Italy in June 1996 with the first Gremium MC Chapter in Vipiteno, Italy (Bolzano, Trentino Alto Adige), which carried the Gremium colors in our country.
The movement started from the north (soon spreading to Trentino and to Veneto with many other Chapters) making its way across Italy in a disruptive manner until it reached the far south of our nation, including Sicily, through Campania, Puglia and Calabria, areas where there is right now the highest concentration of Gremium Chapters.
As of today, Gremium Motorcycle Club keeps adding Chapters and members, for a growth marked by respect and brotherhood, founding values of our biker faith.
Gremium MC is often associated with the idea of a group belonging to the political right wing, thanks also to the presence of the Iron Cross in the patch (see Colors and Symbols). However we want to keep our distance from any political wing, we only believe in what we are.
Too often it has been tried to identify Gremium MC as a radical or extreme organization, criminal, too ... Unfortunately, as we all know, ignorance and prejudice always run on the fast track lane.
We don't ask to be judged by those who do not understand our way of life. We believe our life is worth just as much as our brother's who's on the bike next to us.
This is the Motorcycle Club Bikers Brotherhood.
"We do not expect to be loved. We demand respect."
