Fourteen members of the French Identitarian movement have been arrested by police after they blockaded the three major roads from the “Jungle” of Calais to the town center, the organization has reported.
“Several activists are still in custody for fanciful reasons and the socialist regime will probably try to criminalize their courageous and legitimate efforts,” the organization said on its Facebook page.
“If they are not released without any charges, we will release videos which show the violence used by police against our activists, as we filmed everything,” the statement added.
The arrests followed a demonstration by one hundred and thirty activists from the Génération Identitaire movement, who yesterday morning blocked the access roads from the nonwhite invader camp into the city.
“Since the state is unable to really defend Calais,” a statement issued yesterday said, “its people have, since 7:30, taken control of three bridges” used by the invaders to reach the Calais city center.
“For months, Calais has become a symbol in our country of the real invasion confronting our continent. Attacks against the police, against motorists and truck drivers, riots in the city, and the total disintegration of the social and economic fabric—all that has become the city’s daily martyrdom,” the statement continued, adding that there had been a “tremendous acceleration in incidents in recent weeks.”
“In the Jungle itself, countless acts of violence have taken place, and many journalists have paid the price. This situation is the result of the irresponsible policy for which our national political leaders are guilty, along with those leaders in Paris, Berlin, and Brussels.
“Since these governments refuse to protect people by restoring the borders on a national and European level, they will now see how the people build barricades!” the statement ended.
The group took over the bridges with large barricades and burning barrels. At the same time they hoisted banners reading that they were defending their city and calling for an end to the invasion of Europe.
Local Calais activists were well-represented, and were on hand to let local white French people—who they recognized—through the barricades when needed.
The group also handed out leaflets telling the invaders to go home: “All accesses to Calais are blocked. You won’t pass, go back and go home. We won’t step back anymore. This is our country, get back to yours.”
By 1:30 in the afternoon, the police had shown up in large numbers, and set about attacking the protestors.
“Once again, the socialist system showed that, when faced with a choice between acting against illegal immigrants or the defenders of Calais, they chose the side of the illegals,” a Génération Identitaire Facebook update post said—pointing out that the French government had never acted to stop the illegal invaders from entering France and wrecking Calais, but now saw fit to act against French people who objected to the destruction of their country.
“The socialist regime and the illegitimate ‘European’ Commissioners must understand that people will never agree or let it rest as long as the borders are not restored,” the third statement of the day read.
With reference to French government plans to “relocate” the invaders to a newly-built center near the Jungle, a Génération Identitaire statement added that the “only ‘relocation of migrants’ which is worthwhile is back to their countries of origin.”
