Génération Identitaire’s statement on mosque occupation


Here, from the website of Génération Identitaire, the Generation of National Identity, is the English version of their statement about their occupation—already ended after sending shock waves through French public opinion—of a mosque being built in Poitiers. (Note: I’ve substantially, and in a couple of spots freely, revised the translation and edited it for punctuation and spelling. Also, Tiberge at Galliawatch has her own translation, as well as several other posts on the occupation and the responses to it.)

From the Grand Mosque of Poitiers, Génération Identitaire calls for reconquest!

One hundred young men and women from all parts of France have just entered the future Grand Mosque of Poitiers and occupied its rooftops. On the front of the building, facing the minaret, we have unrolled a banner where a clear message can be read:

“Immigration, building of mosques: REFERENDUM!”

By this first major action, Génération Identitaire places itself in the forefront of the struggle for our identity.

1,300 years ago Charles Martel stopped the Arabs in Poitiers in a heroic battle which saved our country from the Musulman invasion. It was October 25th, 732. Now it is 2012 and we face the same choice: live free or die. Our generation refuses to see her people and her identity disappear through indifference. We will never be the Native Indians of Europe. From this place, this important symbol of our past and of the bravery of our ancestors, we send a call to memory and combat!

We don’t want any more non-European immigration, nor the building of mosques on French soil. Since the first waves of African immigration and the law on family reunification in 1974, our people have never been consulted about the populations with whom we have been forced to live. Mass immigration radically transforms our country: according to the recent work of INSEE (National Institute of Statistics), 43 percent of the people aged 18-50 in the region of Paris are immigrants or descendants of immigrants. A people can recover from an economic crisis or a war, but not from its own replacement by foreign peoples. Without the French, there is no France. It is a matter of survival. That is why every people has the absolute right to choose whether it wants to welcome strangers and in what numbers.

Because this right has been denied to us, and because our generation pays the high price for this situation by being subjected in the street to threats from the scum, we say: Enough! No more backing down! We demand a national referendum on immigration and on the building of mosques in France. We won’t leave this place until we have been listened to and our demands addressed.

Aware that our fight has only just begun, we call on all young Europeans to become heirs of their destiny and to join the vanguard of youth that stands tall.

May all Europe hear our call: RECONQUEST!
