I had been labeling them by the month from which the stories came (e.g. the March stories published in early April), but from now on I am going to label it based on the month the post comes out.
Huge thanks as always to YesPasaran for his passion and diligence in cataloguing these, and for his generosity in letting us repost them.
There are some exciting stories and I hope they inspire readers. I only include part of each story and a fraction of the pictures, so definitely click through to his site to get the entire background on each.
Note: I do not endorse all of the below groups whose actions are profiled. While I respect and sympathize with anyone fighting to preserve Europe and the West and prevent their destruction, these posts are about tracking and analyzing and the inclusion of groups here does not equate to my automatic support for them. I am going to include all activism and resistance in these posts that is relevant, whether it is the “Super-based gay Sikh Milo-loving brigade” protesting against Islamization or the “Neo-Nazi Joseph Goebbels Killer Death Squad brigade” protesting against Islamization.
With that said, here we go, updates for May 2017!
April 1st, London, England.
In the wake of the Westminster terror attack, a Britain First/EDL march was held in the nation’s capital drawing about 250 participants.
Coming out of apparent retirement to attend the protest was former EDL leader Tommy Robinson.
Coming out to counter protest the event were a similar number of antifa, mostly under the banner of Unite Against Fascism (UAF).
Despite most people from opposing sides being separated by some distance & a large number of police, minor scuffles took place.
No injuries were reported, but 14 arrests were made. All of these seem to be from the counter protesters, as they were trying to fight with police after being unable to reach the anti-terror march.
After Britain First & the EDL marched around and their leaders gave a series of speeches, the event concluded successfully.

Rome, March 23rd.
Casa Pound led a protest of Roman citizens in front of the proposed site for a “refugee” center in the Monte Arsiccio neighborhood, near a school.
“There will be no shelter in via Monte Arsiccio. Our victory is the victory of all Roman citizens who have chosen CasaPound! “- said Andrea Antonini, addressing the crowd.
The days’ event was organized by the Committee of Monte Arsiccio in conjunction with Casa Pound, after the owner of the building to be used as a refugee center said that he did not support the government’s decision to allocate the building for the accommodation of immigrants and alleged refugees.
The protest drew a large, supportive crowd from the local community.
The event was a huge success, with no arrests or counter protest taking place.
Saturday, March 19th.
In the coastal Belgian village of Zeebrugee, about 150 members & supporters of the Flemish nationalist group Voorpost held a protest against illegal immigration.
Speaking on the issue, one local was quoted as saying (sorry for the rough translation) “Now immigrant issues have been dragging on for two years. After the Syrians and Iraqis now there are many African problems. They are also aggressive. Girls are harassed and empty buildings are destroyed. And then there was also the big brawl between truckers and migrants.”
The nationalists marched unopposed, as neither the left wing or the immigrants came out to counter protest. The event was thus entirely peaceful, with no violence or arrests taking place.
The following are quotes and videos YesPasaran reposted to describe the event:
Spencer has long been an outspoken supporter of Trump and his policies, including building a wall on the southern border and banning refugees from entering the country. But his decision to lead a handful of protesters to speak out against the strike has been emblematic of the split between Trump and some of his most ardent and far-right supporters.
Spencer and his supporters also seemed to be focusing much of their attention against Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump’s husband and one of the president’s closest advisors.
If the alt-right’s core ethos could be reduced to a single maxim, it would be this: to each his own. This is the attitude that undergirds the support for racial and cultural separation and white nationalism that the movement is most closely associated with.
Richard Spencer, whose support for Trump has dimmed as Trump’s stances on immigration have, according to Spencer’s harsh measure, softened, issued what is perhaps his most forceful rebuke of the president so far in a video titled “The Trump Betrayal.” “I have to be brutally honest,” he said. “I am deeply disappointed in Donald Trump. I’m shocked, and I’m angry. And I am ready to condemn Donald Trump.” He was far from alone.
Some of the far right’s opposition to Middle East intervention was driven by anti-Semitic theories about the role of shadowy Jewish globalists in setting American foreign policy. But overall, the stance of what would become the alt-right on the Iraq war, nation-building, and interventionist foreign policy was motivated by opposition to the idea that Western-style democracy could be delivered by force to people seen as backwards—and also by the desire, voiced by Brimelow, to see resources devoted to making the country whiter and more prosperous. “Does anyone want to consider what our aims are in all this?” Spencer asked of the Iraq war in 2008.
YesPasaran describes a protst by Scottish nationalists against mass-immigration and Islamization:
Saturday, March 25th.
Counter protesting them were a sizable number of anti-whites of various stripes bused in from around the country.
The police managed to keep the opposing sides separate for the most part, & there were no incidents of violence.
There were, however, ten arrests made; three were nationalists arrested for religiously-aggravated offences, while the other seven were antifa arrested for public order offences.
Although details about the march remain sparse, it appears to have been a success as neither the antifa nor the police were able to stop it from being carried out.
The Scottish Sun
YesPasaran describes the day’s events:
During an “International Day Against Racism” rally which was organized by several left wing groups, the Vancouver branch of the Soldiers Of Odin came out to confront the demonstrators.
Making their entrance with a purple smoke bomb, “tempers flared almost immediately” according to one eyewitness, as verbal arguments between the left wing and Soldiers of Odin quickly escalated to pushing and shoving.
One anarchist attempted to snatch a Canadian flag away from a SOO member, but was put in a headlock until police intervened.
Three of the SOO men were arrested for breach of the peace and released shortly after the rally ended.
NOTE: These protests across Canada were also the ones we here at Europeancivilwar.com profiled because one of our readers- David- was made temporarily famous by the picture of him brawling with Antifa that got published in one of Canada’s biggest newspapers.

YesPasaran details anti-EU protests in Italy:
In a massive show of force, over 5,000 Italian nationalists took to the streets of Rome in a protest against the European Union.
The crowd of activists & citizens waving banners that read “F**k EU” protested “tyranny in Brussels,” blaming eurocrats for inflicting poverty, austerity and uncontrollable migration upon Italians as Rome marks the 60th anniversary of a landmark European treaty.
More protests from Scotland! From YesPasaran:
On Easter sunday, over 50 members & supporters of the Scottish Defence League, North West Infidels, & English Volunteer Force held a protest against “refugees” in the town centre of Wishaw.
The town was targeted for a demo because it had accepted Syrian immigrants.
Antifa organized a counter demonstration, mostly under the ‘Unite Against Fascism’ banner.
A large number of police kept the two sides separate.
The event concluded successfully & there were no arrests or incidents of violence.

The AfD continues to increase representation in Germany, and YesPasaran discusses the latest election in Saarland, and gives an update on the overall picture below (source at bottom):
A general election is due in September this year, which polls and most observers predict Merkel will lose. She has been in power with the support of the socialist SPD, but increasing numbers of German voters have been flocking to the anti-immigration party Alternative for Germany (AfD), which has only existed since 2013 and has become increasingly radical on immigration and related questions since 2015.
Today there was an election for the Landtag (regional parliament) of Saarland, a region with a population around one million, centered on the city of Saarbrücken, near the German-French border.
Slightly surprisingly, early results show that Merkel’s party has polled quite well in Saarland, perhaps because conservative voters were alarmed at the possibility of a socialist alliance with the ex-communist Left Party (Die Linke).
Some weak-willed middle class voters of this sort have thus been prepared to ignore or forgive Merkel’s shocking betrayal of German interests. Nevertheless, it was a positive sign that AfD won Saarland Landtag seats for the first time today, polling somewhere over 6%.
The next German regional election is in North Rhine-Westphalia — the largest of Germany’s states with a population of 18 million, including four big cities: Cologne, Düsseldorf, Dortmund and Essen. This NRW region has taken a vast number of the immigrants admitted by Merkel. Seen as a socialist stronghold, NRW votes on May 14th. A week earlier French voters will have the decisive second round in their presidential election. Marine Le Pen is expected to contest that second round against a centrist, pro-immigration candidate.

YesPasaran brings us electoral news from Europe’s South-Eastern frontier:
The Bulgarian nationalist party United Patriots won 9.3% of the vote in parliamentary elections held on March 26th.
In a surprise move, the center-right, pro-E.U. party, GERB (Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria) announced that it will partner with United Patriots.
UP is itself a coalition of three nationalist groups: National Movement of Bulgaria (IMRO), National Front for the Salvation of Bulgaria (NFSB) and ATAKA (Attack!).
Furthermore, the new civic nationalist, anti-immigration party Volia won 4.3 percent of the vote. This party was formed in 2016 by Veselin Mareshki, a businessman who ran on a populist, nationalist, anti-immigration and pro-Russian platform.
Macron Booed By Native-French Workers
Emmanuel Macron, the vaguely gender-neutral Manchurian candidate of the Soros-backed globalist elites, was booed and hissed at when he stopped at a Whirlpool factory to talk to the workers.
Macron proceeded to tell the workers he would be shipping all remaining blue-collar jobs overseas, and that if they wanted to find gainful employment they would have to borrow €100,000 in student loans at 11.2% interest to get a Masters Degree in Social Work so they could get a job with the government doing counseling for PTSD-stricken refugees from Afghanistan caused by Vladimir Putin’s genocidal bombing spree in Syria.
Even Al-Jazeera had to admit the optics were bad:
French presidential frontrunner Emmanuel Macron has been booed and heckled with chants backing his far-right rival Marine Le Pen in his home town.
Wednesday’s incident happened outside the Whirlpool appliance factory in northern city of Amiens after Macron arranged to meet the plant workers’ union representatives, without actually visiting the facility.
He only arrived there after Le Pen turned up unannounced outside the plant and posed for selfies with workers.
“Everyone knows what side Emmanuel Macron is on – he is on the side of the corporations,” Le Pen said. “I am on the workers’ side, here in the car park, not in restaurants in Amiens.”
After arriving, Macron told angry workers that the only reason that anti-EU Le Pen had come was “because I’m here”.
He also retorted on Twitter that she had spent “10 minutes with her supporters in a car park in front of the cameras” whereas he had spent “an hour and a half with union representatives and no media”.
Le Pen’s campaign coup
Al Jazeera’s Natacha Butler, speaking from Arras, said Le Pen showed Macron that “the gloves are off in the battle for the French presidency”.
“He was totally upstaged by the far-right leader. It was a real campaign coup. It perhaps shows what some people have been saying – that he is inexperienced,” she said. “Marine Le Pen is a veteran politician. She knows how to campaign hard.”
The factory operated by Whirlpool, a US multinational company, is threatened with outsourcing to Poland.
Macron was in Amiens to try to counter accusations that he had made a complacent start to campaigning for the presidential runoff on May 7.
After winning Sunday’s contest with 24.1 percent to Le Pen’s 21.3 percent, Macron gave an exuberant victory speech followed by a high-profile celebration at La Rotonde bistro in Paris, drawing criticism from some quarters.
And finally, to include another one (although technically it took place in May not April)…. we have:
The Bonnier-family backed paper The Local, whose radical left-wing propaganda we recently profiled, called the group (what else) “Neo-Nazis” and wrote a full article about the march (remember, in Sweden, if you oppose your homeland becoming majority Muslim in the next 15 years that makes you a ‘Neo-Nazi’). Here is their description:
A May Day demonstration by the militant neo-Nazi group the Nordic Resistance Movement (NRM) in Falun elicited strong reactions from Swedes celebrating the traditional workers’ holiday on Monday.
The NRM march was one of six demonstrations in the central Swedish town of Falun on Monday, with a couple hundred supporters of the neo-Nazi group marching through the heart of the city. The group was part of as many as 5,000 participants who had turned out for a traditional May 1st celebration and was greeted by counter-demonstrators along the route.
Defence Minister Peter Hultqvist blasted the group’s presence in Falun, saying that NRM represents “crimes against humanity”.
“This is an important day for our society and resistance against the Nazis,” Hultqvist said. “One can question whether it is fair that May Day has to take place with a police presence in order for people to feel safe.”
NRM has participated in May Day demonstrations before, including last year in Borlänge when an image of one woman’s defiant resistance to the group went viral.
Overall an action-packed month.
It seems fair to observe that more and more individuals are going out and joining with organizations and demonstrations in real life, and that this Preservationist movement- both in Europe and North America- is becoming less inchoate and more ‘real’.
That is a very good thing. We have history and reality on our side, and once things hit the fan, if we are logistically prepared, we can leverage those asymmetric opportunities to victory, and achieve our dreams of survival and reconquest.
