    And unlike the Yellow Vests, they could not count on the massive support of the press, but despite that, there were nevertheless hundreds of Identitarians gathered in Paris, on Sunday, November 17.

    A week after the “march against Islamophobia”, in which controversial figures and left-wing politicians took part, a few hundred people took part in the capital in a demonstration “against Islamism,” reported RTL.

    “If we are present today, it is to represent the people of France, the true ones, those who have really been living here together, not the ‘make-shift’ community that is imposed on us,” said Anaïs Ligner, spokesperson of the Génération Identitaire, at the start of the event.

    According to the organisers, “up to 800” people were present. In the march, French flags and photos of terrorists, like the perpetrators of the Charlie Hebdo killings were displayed.

    “We love our country and we are worried about its future, we must mobilize against Islamism,” said Patrick, a retired English teacher, according to RTL. And the former teacher added: “In the canteens, our children eat halal. Our women are beaten, with the complicity of politicians.”

    Jean-Yves Le Gallou, a former executive of the National Front, currently president of the Polemia Foundation, believes that the fact that “Muslims want to impose their culture on us, this is our problem, it is not bearable.”

    For Clement Gandelin, president of Génération Identitaire, “this event was organised in response to the attack that took place at the police headquarters in Paris (early October by an agent suspected of radicalization) and today in fact we realize that we live in a delirious society where Islamists manage to infiltrate our highest institutions”.
