    Facebook has been deleting GI’s pages form its platform over the past weeks, with scant or no explanation, inews.co.uk reported.

    Calling GI members “hipster fascists”, the outlet reported that Facebook had multiple UK pages for London, Manchester, Birmingham and Belfast wiped. The pages were growing and attracting more followers, it said. But the ban impacts all identitarian branches not only those in Britain. Austria, Italy, Germany, Denmark, Hungary, and France, where the original Generation Identitaire group was founded, were also targeted.

    Facebook has confirmed that the group had been permanently banned from the platform, “citing their policies against extremist content and organised hate groups”, according inews.

    The French chapter of GI said in a press release: “By depriving Generation Identitaire of any representation on its platform, Facebook tries to gag a political movement that has accumulated hundreds of thousands of subscribers throughout Europe.

    “Our lawyer has already put Facebook on notice to reactivate all Generation Identitaire and Defend Europe pages. If the company administering the network does not run, we will immediately initiate legal proceedings,” they added.

    The British branch accused Facebook of banning the personal accounts of activists for as little as sharing the Greek letter lambda, the logo of the group.

    Hungarian Identitarian movement leader Abel Bodi was suspended from Facebook for sharing a Breitbart London article. The censorship also follows the closing down of multiple identitarian accounts on Instagram, including the personal account of Austrian co-leader Martin Sellner.

    Sellner was detained twice at the UK border and refused entry to Britain to stop him from giving a speech on free speech at Speaker’s Corner, as well as to block him from attending Bodi’s conference.

    Facebook’s censorship was welcomed on Twitter by the George Soros-funded far-left activists.

    Meanwhile, the youth wing of Marine Le Pen’s party, the FN youth has renamed itself Generation Nation. Supported by the Identity movement, the members of this organisation represent one-third of the 45 000 members of the former Front National, now called the Rassemblement national.

    The youth of the National Rally (former JNF) renamed themselves on Saturday, June 23, calling their movement Generation Nation in the presence of Marine Le Pen in a Parisian cafe.

    “You arrive at the moment of big change. (Emmanuel) Macron is not a beginning of a cycle, but the end of a cycle and its model is about to collapse,” Le Pen told her audience. “The idea of ‘sans-frontiérisme’ [open borders] is beaten all over the world,” the president of the National Rally told some 200 young people, urging them to keep the “flame” burning in “a country that can go out like a candle”.

    Jordan Bardella, 22 years old, took the lead of the newly named youth group.
