Thaïs d’Escufon from Generation Identity responds to their dissolution

    “This is not the first time the government has sought to dissolve us. Nevertheless, we knew that [Interior Minister] Gérald Darmanin particularly wanted it because he sees an obvious political interest in it. After having given pledges to the right via the dissolution of the [jihadist] CCIF and BarakaCity, the Minister of the Interior as a worthy heir to Emmanuel Macron in wishing to do something “at the same time” to satisfy the left,” explained d’Escufon.

    “We were therefore not surprised by the notification of dissolution itself, but by its content. All the reasons given have no basis, are completely shaky or even grotesque. We intend to defend ourselves to the end, which four lawyers including Maître Goldnadel are already working to do.

    “To give you an example, Darmanin criticizes us for our operation in the Alps on the grounds that we are forming militias. But with that, justice has already decided, since we have been released!

    “This decision to dissolve us has no serious basis. It is a direct attack on freedom of expression and association, through us, it is all opposition to the migration policy that will be muzzled.

    “We are also accused of having deployed a banner that called for ‘Justice for Axelle‘, this young Lyon girl dragged over 800m by an Arab immigrant car until her leg was torn off by the vehicle. All this is supposedly an ‘incitement to hatred’. First, this action had never been the subject of any trial. But above all, what is the message that we should understand, that it is illegal to seek justice for French people who are lynched, murdered, slaughtered? Isn’t the violence in this barbaric act rather than in a banner that demands exemplary punishment for Axelle’s murderers? So the French should let themselves be killed in silence? It’s just mind blowing.”

    According to d’Escufon this decision to dissolve GI has no serious legal basis. She believes the problem is the message that they are sending out and that bothers the French government, because all their actions have always been peaceful.

    “If we were to stick to strict law, there is no doubt that we would win. But the ideological dimension is very strong, this decision is political on the part of the government. Count on us to defend ourselves until the end.”

    She added that hidden behind Gérald Darmanin’s motivation to dissolve GI was the humiliation they were able to inflict on him. “We point the finger at the incompetence of its government, its judicial and migratory laxity,” she pointed out.

    “We have shown that we are more effective than the ‘strong’ measures to ‘wage war on Islamism’ which he claims to deploy. We are a thorn in the side of the government because we are shining a light on their immigration incapacity. So they prefer to silence this opposition rather than show political courage and finally implement what a majority of the French population is asking: the end of mass immigration.

    “Our actions are perfectly legal, as justice has not failed to remind you through our various releases. In the end, all we ask is that the law be applied at the borders: illegal immigrants are not welcome. They are the ones who break the law, it is all the same mind-boggling to have to recall this truth. At the same time, migrant smugglers like Cédric Herrou are released.”

    Darmanin has called himself the minister of firmness, but GI has focused on the facts and not on his misleading political communication, revealing thus that his measures have no basis in reality.

    D’Escufon highlighted that their mode of operation was similar to that of other NGOs like Greenpeace. “They are certainly spectacular but do not break the law, do not cause any disturbance to public order, and only highlight problems. The real reason for this dissolution is not the form of our actions but our message of truth that bothers the government,” she said.

    “Today it is enough to be even a little critical of immigration/invasion to be hated. Any politician or intellectual who dares to denounce it incurs lawsuits (like Éric Zemmour for example). All opposition is muzzled, marginalized, censored.”

    If the government hits on Génération Identitaire it is because it knows that the GI movement has established itself as the most effective, the most structured, and the only one really capable of competing in terms of communication with immigrationist NGOs, which are largely subsidized, d’Escufon concluded.

    DESTRUCTIVE HAILSTORMS will become more frequent and violent with increasingly larger hail, predicted solar researcher Valentina Zharkova back in 2019 when she stated that it's one of many signs of an impending Grand Solar Minimum. This is exactly what we have witnessed this year in both Europe and the world. Here is the German town of Benediktbeuern in Bavaria after a hailstorm on August 26th. Almost all rooftops and cars were damaged. The centuries-old church and monastery were damaged for the first time ever. Interestingly, the monastery was rebuilt in 1699 during the Maunder Minimum. Combined with heavy rainfall, extreme weather will devastate a significant portion of our food production. For instance, heavy rainfall destroyed a quarter of all crops in Greece in just two days in September. However, mainstream media remains silent. Photo: X @safe0007/Sandor Feher

    NOAA Predicts Zero Sunspots for Almost the Whole 2030s

    CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.

    NATIONALIST COLLABORATION TAKES SHAPE. Six parties met in Budapest on August 26th to sign a joint declaration confirming the friendship and political unity among the parties. The goal is to either form a new group in the European Parliament after the EU elections in June next year or to reconstitute the existing Identity and Democracy (ID) group with the new parties.

    European Nationalist Parties Forge Cooperation Ahead of EU Elections

    EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.

    Turkey Believes Sweden Hasn’t Done Enough

    Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.

    Swedish Weapon Takes Down Russia’s Best Attack Helicopter

    The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.

    Alternative for Germany held its conference during the last weekend of July in the thousand-year-old city of Magdeburg, located by the Elbe River in the eastern German state of Saxony. The first of the two conference days began with a strong program speech by the party's male spokesperson. Subsequently, party officials were elected and motions were addressed. The second day was entirely devoted to candidate selection and positioning for the EU election in June next year. Screenshot: AfD on Facebook

    Strong Confidence in German AfD

    Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.

    Maximilian Krah is one of the AfD politicians who is singled out as an ethnonationalist, as he has stated that there is a distinction between ethnic Germans and immigrants who have obtained German citizenship. Krah is a Member of the European Parliament and AfD's top candidate for the upcoming European Union election next year. Still image: AfD on Facebook

    The Establishment Wants to Ban Germany’s Second Largest Party – for the Sake of Democracy

    The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

    FvD was quick to support the protests against covid restrictions. Today, the party also stands behind the farmers protests against the governments’ plans to close a big portion of the farms in the country for the sake of “climate”.

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
