Immigration at Historic Poitiers
On Saturday, several dozen French citizens occupied a mosque under construction in Poitiers, France and raised a sign demanding an end to Muslim immigration.
Poitiers was the site of the civilization-saving battle of 732 when Charles Martel defeated the Muslim invaders and chased them out of France.
More recently, however, post-war Muslim immigration into Europe has erased the advantage gained by Charles Martel. Now Poitiers is on its second mosque, no doubt because Muslims like to mark territory with Islamic edifices.
Generation Identitaire, the group mounting the protest said in part (translation from Galliawatch):
Almost 1300 years ago, Charles Martel stopped the Arabs in Poitiers after an heroic battle that saved our country from the Muslim invasion. It was October 25, 732. Today the choice is the same: live free or die. Our generation refuses to see its people and its identity disappear in indifference. We will never be the Indians of Europe (i.e., the American Indians.) From this place symbolic of our past and of the courage of our ancestors, we are launching an appeal to remember and to fight!
We do not want any more non-European immigration or any new mosques constructed on French soil. Since the first waves of African immigration and family reunification in 1974, our people have never been consulted on the populations they are forced to live with. Massive immigration is radically transforming our country: according to the latest INSEE study, 43% of those 18-50 years old in the region of Ile-de-France are immigrants or their descendants. A people can overcome an economic crisis or a war but not a replacement of our population: without Frenchmen, France no longer exists. It’s a question of survival: it is why every people has the absolute right to choose if it wishes to accept foreigners and in what proportion.
Since we have been refused this right and our generation is paying the high price in the street confronted with threats from the scum, we say: that’s enough, we will no longer back down! We demand a national referendum on immigration and mosque construction in France. We will not leave this place until we are heard.
Naturally the press characterized the protesters as “far right” or worse, but the dramatic action has gotten worldwide attention.
