    The European Alliance of Peoples and Nations (EAPN) now count more than ten member parties from Scandinavia to Italy, significantly increasing the weight of patriotic parties in the European Parliament.

    At the initiative of the AFD candidate for the EU parliamentary election in late May, Markus Buchheit, a discussion took place this week under the title “Future Europe in the EU” in Munich.

    Together with Buchheit, Austrian MEP Franz Obermayr (FPÖ), as well as a representative of the Italian governing party Lega, Marco Tirapelle, and the Flemish anti-immigration party Vlaams Belang, Dominiek Lootens, sat on the podium.

    Shortly before the event, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban had withdrawn the support from the leading candidate of the EPP Group, Manfred Weber, and held a joint press conference with Heinz-Christian Strache, FPÖ leader.

    The issue in Munich was therefore whether Orban would possibly leave the EPP to join the new sovereignist group. There was no doubt for the participants however: Hungary would be a desirable partner. But the participants did not want to commit themselves.

    Orban meanwhile said on Facebook on Thursday that voters should tick the boxes of anti-migration leaders on European Parliament ballot papers so that the bloc can protect itself “and the future of our children”.

    In a video recorded in Sibiu, central Romania, on the sidelines of an informal summit of European Union leaders, Orban said discussions had been focused on Europe’s future, but absent of the opinions of ordinary people, it would be impossible to draw any meaningful conclusions.

    “We’ll become familiar with their opinions at the election,” he said. “What we can definitely say today is that Hungary represents the view that migration must be stopped.”

    At the Munich rally, Tirapelle, who is also chairman of the group “Lega in the world” with, inter alia, offshoots in Germany, gave an insight into the goals of the future group: “Our focus in the future lies on much more than just fighting illegal immigration, we want the the EU to be leaner and more effective.”

    The focus of the representatives was unanimous on preserving the cultural identity of European peoples and giving them back responsibility.

    It would not stubbornly go against the EU, but against Brussels only, which is really necessary and can only be solved there, participants said. But in the past, the EU has clearly failed to address key issues such as border management.

    Dominiek Lootens, a longtime Member of Parliament, saw far more than a political lever in the next group: “We have ideals and common challenges across borders, including first and foremost the preservation of our national identities.”

    Buchheit saw in the event “a sign of departure, encouraging and coming at the right time”. He made it clear: “We have a common vision of Europe and of the EU. We want more citizen proximity and less interference in our respective identities. We want diversity. We are the true Europeans! “
