Editor’s Note: This post is the first in a new series we will be publishing monthly titled ‘Update On Activism And Resistance’. It is a collaboration between this site and YesPasaran, a website dedicated to profiling Preservationist activism across the West.
YesPasaran and I have each commented on the other’s website on and off over this last year, and knowing that he was already doing a very thorough job of cataloging such stories, I thought it better to reach out to him about working together than to try to re-invent the wheel myself.
As a result, each month we will publish a collection of stories from his site highlighting activism and resistance in Europe. The ones below are still only a portion of what he has published in February, so I would highly encourage anyone reading this to also go check his site out directly. The URL is https://yespasaran.wordpress.com/.
The collection of stories for February appears below, and I am excited to keep publishing more as 2017- what we are hoping will be Year One of the Reconquista– rolls on.
Note: Anything not italicized in blockquotes is my own commentary.
About fifty nationalists organized by Lyon avec Jeanne (Lyon with Joan), including members of GUD Lyon, held a protest outside of a performance of “Jeanne au pûcher”, an anti-French play mocking Joan of Arc.
After assembling in front of the theater, local police attacked the protesters with batons, tear gas & mace. There were appeared to be no injuries or reports of arrests, & the demonstration continued despite the attempts of the police.
On February 2, the 97th anniversary of the nation’s independence from the Soviet Union, the Conservative People’s Party of Estonia (Eesti Konservatiivse Rahvaerakonna) with the Estonian Freedom Party – Farmers’ Assembly (Eesti Vabaduspartei – Põllumeeste Kogu) called on Estonians to join the torchlight parade and mark the nation’s victory in the War of Independence.
In this incident, Nordic Resistance Movement activists who were handling out leaflets in Salen, Sweden were attacked by foreign migrants. YesPasaran’s account suggests the scuffle got pretty intense and the resistance members were pepper-sprayed by their attackers.
You can see the whole article and an interview with one of the NRM members here.
A village in Hungary has banned the wearing of Muslim dress and the call to prayer. By leading what it calls “the war against Muslim culture”, it hopes to attract other Christian Europeans who object to multiculturalism in their own countries.
“We primarily welcome people from western Europe – people who wouldn’t like to live in a multicultural society,” Laszlo Toroczkai tells the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme. “We wouldn’t like to attract Muslims to the village.”
Mr. Toroczkai is mayor of Asotthalom, a remote village in the southern Hungarian plains, situated around two hours from the capital Budapest.
“It’s very important for the village to preserve its traditions. If large numbers of Muslims arrived here, they would not be able to integrate into the Christian community.”
“We can see large Muslim communities in western Europe that haven’t been able to integrate – and we don’t want to have the same experience here,” he says. “I’d like Europe to belong to Europeans, Asia to belong to Asians and Africa to belong to Africans. Simple as that.”
The article continues, on coordination with Preservationist leaders to attract patriots from across Europe to the area:
“I have been contacted by Jim Dowson,” Mr Toroczkai explains. “He came to Asotthalom a few times as a private individual, just to have a look. Nick Griffin also came with him.”
Mr Griffin has previously described Hungary as “a place to get away from the hell that is about to break loose in western Europe”.
“When it all goes terribly wrong in the West, more will move to Hungary and Hungary needs those people.”
Mr Toroczkai says he would be happy to welcome people from England.
Scores of nationalists marched through the streets of Cologne on Saturday, January 14th, to denounce the German government’s refugee and asylum policies.
The protest was organised by the local branch of the far-right National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD).
Counter-protesters attempted to disrupt the rally shouting “Nazis out!.” A large police presence was deployed to prevent possible clashes. Several protesters were detained during the rally; no injures were reported.
The NPD is still polling at extremely low levels, as the AfD seems to be using most of the anti-National Suicide oxygen politically, but it is very heartening to see them out on the streets protesting. The more native Europeans who see that the survival of their country is something worth protesting for and sacrificing for, the more likely they are to awaken in my opinion.
A group of nationalist organizations marched in the Ukraine before delivering an ultimatum to the current government. I am not well versed enough on the situation there to really ascertain where they lay within the political framework, but the ultimatum suggests they oppose both Russian incursions as well as Soros-backed EU ‘liberalization’.
The ultimatum says:
“We speak on behalf of working and belligerent Ukraine. The former you destroy, the latter betray.
Today a handful of millionaires and billionaires usurped all power in the country. The president, the government and the vast majority of Parliament belong to the same clique. On the international arena, you claim to represent people who did not entitle you to exercise anything.
You are accountable for:
– The privatization and sale of the country;
– Extermination of Ukrainians by hunger, unemployment rates and tariffs;
– Humiliation, submission and surrender of the lands to the Kremlin.
We, Ukrainian nationalists, unite our efforts to counter giving up the country to the armed invaders from the East and the financial extortionists from the West, and most importantly – to destroy the thieves’ clique called today “the authorities.”
This story only achieves full significance when you understand that left-wing parties in Germany commonly use praise of the bombing of Dresden as a political slogan/meme in their own marches and demonstrations.
In such examples you often see signs reading “Do it again Bomber Harris!”, referencing a generic American ‘GI’ name one would have heard in WWII, (specifically among the Air Force members who firebombed the city).
The reason for such a (horrific) slogan is in part basic German ethnic self-hatred and Cultural-Marxism, but also because Dresden is a city (and area) in Eastern Germany known for its very right-wing, traditionalist, anti-immigration politics. In that regard, a left-winger in Germany lauding the historical destruction of Dresden would almost be like an American leftist from Boston or Seattle doing the same for some hypothetical bombing of Lynchburg, Virginia a long time ago.
Feb. 18, 2017.
In the city of Würzburg, about 200 members & supporters of “Der Dritte Weg” (The Third Way) held a memorial march for the bombing victims of Dresden in the Second World War.
In addition to the march, the were several speeches given at the event, including one by the Nordic Resistance leader Simon Lindberg.
The event continued into the night, with more speeches being held & even a bit of performance art.
Despite a small anti-German protest, the event concluded without violence or arrests.
February 18th, 2017.
The fourteenth annual Lukov march went ahead despite being banned by the mayor of Sofia & public opposition from the Bulgarian Socialist Party, the Russian foreign ministry, & the Shalom Organization of Jews in Bulgaria.
The event is held yearly to honor wartime leader General Hristo Lukov, who was murdered by communist forces in 1943.
Over 2,000 Bulgarian nationalists were in attendance, organized by the Bulgarian National Alliance.
Guests from other European nations were present for the event, including delegations from the Nordic Resistance (Sweden & Norway), Die Recht (Germany), & Der Dritte Weg (Germany). Also present were nationalists from Poland, France, Italy, Croatia, Hungary & Spain.
Editor’s Note: I am always heartened seeing stories such as the above. I thank YesPasaran tremendously for his excellent work finding and cataloging this and his generosity in sharing them with our community.
Brothers- What think you? Which of the above stories is most hopeful? Which of the above organizations do you place the most hope in? Which of the above tactics seems most effective?
Also- what other kinds of semi-regular posts would be helpful? I highly welcome your ideas and feedback.
