Festung Europa, or 'Fortress Europe'

German DemonstrationIt would appear from recent reports, that the European Folk are starting the fight back against the unprecedented levels of immigration, recently being permitted by European leaders.

Right wing organisations across Europe have joined forces to form a new network and coalition called Festung Europa, or ‘Fortress Europe’.

At a meeting on 23rd January 2016 in Prague, German representatives of PEGIDA met organisations from nine other countries to sign a joint declaration (see below) opposing political Islam and the Islamisation of Europe, and to explore ways of ensuring that incidents like the mass sex assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve are never repeated.

PEGIDA was founded in Germany in October 2014.  The acronym PEGIDA can be translated from German as the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West. PEGIDA now operates in various countries and the UK group was relaunched in January 2015.

Criticising Angela Merkel’s open-door ‘refugee’ policy, leading PEGIDA activist Tatijana Festerling said it should serve as a warning to the rest of Europe. She continued:

“The goal of the network is international understanding. For only by the profound solidarity among peoples will it be possible for us to cooperatively ward off the population replacement and the Islamisation of Europe that goes with it. Submission is out of the question.”

The Fortress Europe coalition will hold mass demonstrations across Europe on 6th February 2016. They will include a ‘Silent Walk’ protest in Birmingham organised by PEGIDA UK.


The Prague Declaration – Saturday 23rd January 2016

Conscious of the fact that the thousand-year history of Western Civilisation could soon come to an end through the Islamic conquest of Europe, and conscious of the fact that the political elites have betrayed us, we, the representatives of the various nations of Europe, declare as follows:

We shall not surrender Europe to our enemies. We are prepared to stand and oppose political Islam, extreme Islamic regimes and their European collaborators.

We are prepared to risk our freedom, our property, our occupations and careers and perhaps also our lives as generations have done before us. It is our obligation to future generations.

We refuse to submit to a European central government. The regulations of the global elites have brought us poverty, unemployment, corruption, chaos and moral collapse. It is time this came to an end.

We respect the sovereignty of European nations and the rights of people in all European countries to govern their affairs as they see fit.

We hold it to be a sacred right of the citizens of all European countries to protect their borders and to decide which migrants they accept and which they do not accept into their countries.

We call attention to our common European roots, traditions and values, as well as to the historical alliances of our nations.

We are resolved to protect Europe, freedom of speech and all other civil liberties, as well as our common way of life together.

We shall manifest this resolve by our participation in a joint demonstration, which will take place on 6th February 2016 in many European countries.

  1. ( Party Official ) We NATIONALISTS have always respected other Countries , Peoples and ( mostly ) other Cultures. It is the Multi-Cultural Mad People who wish to destroy everyones lifestyles , World Wide. We have always demanded the Right to defend ourselves but are now in DIRE PERIL as we are literally being over run in our own LAND !

    1. John, this article is only reporting what is happening in Europe regarding the large numbers of refugees being allowed to enter the country. We do not nor are we asking for support for PEGIDA. Additionally, we do not organise or take part in political street activities.

      1. Walks, rallies and mass public meetings serve only one legitimate purpose for Nationalism, as, indeed, they do for any other political or sociological movement. That purpose is to show to the general public that a large number of people care about the particular issue(s) which are the subject of the demonstration. I recall the “Ban The Bomb” marches to Aldermaston in the 1950’s (which I participated in). The Bomb has not yet been banned, but most of the world population came to realise, mainly as a result of such demonstrations, that nuclear weapons are not a good thing for governments to be playing around with! If there are no mass rallies or marches etc. in countries, the governments of those countries will not be discomfited, pilloried or feel any sense of “having their noses rubbed in it” over contentious issues which are – demonstrably – dividing the populations they govern. Marches and demonstrations may not meet universal approval even amongst committed political Nationalists; but without these events, the Ruling Powers That Be will complacently assume they are doing a good job and everyone is content with their policies. One thing all governments hate is turmoil amongst the people, which shows to the world that a government has not done a very good job. The best legal way to show there is such turmoil within society is through marches and demonstrations. The alternative is complacency and letting governments assume their more disgusting pieces of legislation are being accepted as desirable, or at least necessary, by the nation they govern. Has there ever been a silent revolution?

        1. There is nothing you have said that I disagree with but when Nationalist Parties take to the streets they are invariably met with considerable opposition and sucked into confrontation which the media use to castigate Nationalists in general and Nationalist Parties in particular. In addition, a lot of organised marches or rallies invariably attract ‘thugs and extremists’ whose intention is to cause conflict and mayhem, thus discrediting the good intentions of the organisers and of those organisations taking part.

          The Party has thus taken the stance not to participate in marches and rallies, but rather focus on taking the nationalist cause to the ballot box.

  2. Hmm…I’m just wondering how silent PERGIDA’s ‘Silent Walk’ will actually be when its opponents invariably turn up. Yet again British Nationalism will descend into confrontation, violence and mayhem – as we’ve seen PERGIDA’s marches do over on the continent. Reinforcing in the public’s mind the association with nationalism with violence and trouble.
    This is NOT the way forward for sensible nationalism. It’s a playpen for the louts and hooligans who can’t apply themselves to serious politics.

    1. Andrew, totally agree – this article is only reporting what is happening in Europe as a result of the large number of refugees being allowed to enter the country. We do not nor are we asking for support for PEGIDA. Additionally we do not organise or take part in political street activities.

  3. ( Party Official ) Sanity from Pegida , unlike our loopy House of Commons who have produced a crescendo of CONTRIVED HORROR AND OUTRAGE because David Cameron said the words ” bunch of migrants. Reminds me of some back bench M.P. or other who said the word FLOOD in a debate on IMMIGRATION. ” Steady on old chap ” and worse was heard ! These loopy people made him apologise. You could not make it up ! Well we say they are a bunch of migrants and they are FLOODING THE COUNTRY. Join the sane people today and be proud that you have done the right thing by becoming a BRIT DEM , TODAY !

  4. Peter
    The Aldermaston marches worked for the Ban the Bombers inso far that they didn’t bring disrepute on the movement but they manifestly failed in changing government policy. The peaceful, almost carnival nature of those demonstrations, probably did attract like minded normal people to the cause. Unfortunately we nationalists of 2016 face wholly different circumstances. Noisy, violent opposition is guaranteed – repelling frightened but nevertheless possibly sympathetic members of the public. The only type of person attracted will be those who enjoy trouble, perpetuating this vicious cycle.

  5. Per mills is right, and In my opinion the party is making a mistake for not taking the stance to participate in marches and rallies, by all means focus on taking the nationalist cause to the ballot box. However we do not have the luxury of time to delay matters before we are swamped. The party should take every opportunity to promote the party and participate with english people to stop and reverse the damage already done. Otherwise you will remain on the sidelines.
    What ever it takes, I don’t care as long as we get our Country back.
    At the current rate we will loose everything anyway and be at war,
    while the party pussy foot around and try to keep a distance from upsetting anyone and continue to feel under pressure
    from the PC brigade. We need you to act now! where are your leaders?
    We need someone with courage and vision who can lead us out of the mess.

  6. Pegida are a bit like the EDL in that they are an anti Islamic group, and tend to be less critical of other damaging aspects of multiculturalism. At their demo on the Strand last year few people attended, much less than they had anticipated anyway. Lots of Police though.

    The usual assortment of rabid Lefties were there. My enduring memory was of a bunch of malnourished looking kids(all white) calling themselves ”AFA” chanting at Coppers after the demo ”Who killed Smiley Culture ?” A pitiful display.

  7. Marches and demos DO NOT engage with the public. Only knocking on doors and actually talking to the British people will do that. Perhaps that’s what frightens so many on the radical right

  8. I think people who talk about Natiionalists taking to the streets are completely out of touch with the current state of British Nationalism, most Nationalist group are tiny, even if it was a good idea, and that is matter of opinion,we just don’t have the numbers. If people are not even prepared to help put out a few leaflets they certainly are not going to go on public demonstrations.

  9. Sadly the Left have the advantage when it comes to street demonstrations there supporters in the media will always BIG them up and portray us in a negative light, it may be unfair and undemocratic but that is just how it is and we have to accept it will continue until we are in a position to put an end to it .
    Street demonstration effectivly died with the Lewisham March the ensuing backlash set the agenda for “YOU MUST NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SAY ANYTHING GOOD ABOUT NATIONALIST “.

  10. The Left have the student masses which they are given free reign to indoctrinate and recruit from within our education system. They have considerable support if not sympathy from a significant element of the anti-British media…Popstars and bands all support the leftist cause

    The Reds are often portrayed as the ”good guys” that oppose ”racists dividing our communities” …which as we all know in reality are already divided, rundown and crime ridden. You can belong to any Leftist group and get a pat on the back rather than have your job or career threatened.

    Even if UKIP held a march or demo, with all of the of votes they got, there would not be that many there…except the idiots of the Left of course, ranting and raving like imbeciles.

    So while the writing is on the wall, these type of activities are currently dominated in numbers by the people who despise this country…though it does not mean, from our angle, that they are entirely futile. In Europe more patriotic people are making a stand openly…but will that happen here ?

  11. We get a bunch of tattooed NF bovver boys in Dover .The media could not have planned it better. Hence Europe has strong Nationalist parties , and we have nothing on that level. despite all the effort put in over the years by dedicated souls.
    So what’s our plan. Well we haven’t got one. Why , because the vast majority of Brits are imbeciles. The believe Cameron will save us.
    We fought all our wars on European soil. So Europeans understand what invasions mean. Us, we ain’t got a clue. Present company excepted. What ever happens in the near future, we will not be part of. Even a Brexit from the EU isn’t certain. Thus proving my case. Imbeciles lead by public school imbeciles

    1. Re the Dover riot. There seem many on the fringes of British Nationalism who find it acceptable to glorify National Socialist Germany, as far as I can see this would be the kiss of death for any British Nationalist party which associates with these people. Flying semi-Nazi flags, doing fascist salutes, these things have no place in British Nationalism. These people have been around for many years, but just lately the media (surprise, surprise) has started to give them publicly, I wonder why. Modern British Nationalism doesn’t need to look back to Nazi Germany, we have nothing to learn from that period.
