French Identitarians to be Fined and Jailed for Opposing Illegal Immigration
The pro-European and anti-immigration movement Generation Identity (GI) has achieved a worldwide notoriety through its often spectacular actions, whether by occupying EU and government buildings or manning their own ship to halt migrant smugglers in the Mediterranean. Such actions are not without risk however.
In spring 2018, French GI activists – frustrated by the French government’s inability or unwillingness to get the migrant crisis under control and prevent illegal immigration into their country – decided to take matters into their own hands with symbolic but effective nonviolent action.
GI blocked the Col de l’Échelle, an Alpine mountain pass near the border with Italy, through which migrant crossings were known to occur. The activists deployed banners, fences, and even helicopters to prevent the migrants from entering France.
One activist explained that the goal was “to show the public authorities that, with a bit of will and fairly modest means, it is possible to regain control of our borders and prevent the illegals from entering our country.” The action succeeded in receiving substantial media coverage and putting pressure on the French government to fulfill its responsibilities.

(I have followed Gen Ident since they were a few guys and gals doing syncopated clapping at the site of the mega mosque at Tours. I have never heard them say they are anti immigrant. They are however, anti-invasion and anti illegal, and mass immigration and they are for the preservation of French and European culture and systems. We all should be Gen Ident)
Generation Ident. Yes we should all be young and courageous. And yes, it comes at a price. My children are “underground” now. We all are. We don’t want to admit it, but we are there.
We are underground and some of us will probably have to go deeper underground, if/when Trump is re-elected this will prevent me having to go underground for 4 years but those who aren’t in the US or are living in big cities in the US will have to go underground.
It is possible that if we get Trump till 2024, we may have cleaned this mess up to the point where people are free again to think their own thoughts in public.
This is true, the radical left will be the ones underground but instead of using blogs to spread the facts they will be busy throwing bombs and assassinating their political opponents.
Not in a place like Boston, dominated by the universities.
