Generation Identity Launches New Defend Europe Mission in the Alps
On Saturday 21 April, a hundred Generation Identity activists from all over Europe launched the new Defend Europe mission with a majestic stunt on the Italian-French border in the Alps.
???????? During the first part of our mission, not a single illegal migrant has entered France: this is a victory! We have shown that if there is the will, border control is possible. #StopMigrantsAlpes pic.twitter.com/x8pXSJPC3G— Defend Europe (@DefendEuropeID) April 22, 2018
This part of the Italian-French border has often been used by thousands of illegal migrants as a route to reach France and northern Europe. Today the identitarian activists proved that things can be done to stop this. Equipped with two helicopters and hiking tools, they placed a huge banner saying: “Closed Border. You Will Not Make Europe Home. No Way! Back To Your Homeland!”
????????Thanks to Generation Identity, no illegal migrant has managed to enter France via the Col de l'Échelle in the Alps today!— Defend Europe (@DefendEuropeID) April 21, 2018

Identitarians are pushing the idea of implementing the Australian No Way policy to stop illegal immigration in Europe.

Here is the statement from the Defend Europe Facebook page:
Illegal migrant routes – Col de l’Échelle – Alps
Generation Identity blocks the Franco-Italian border crossing.
The “Defend Europe” Alps Mission has started!
This Saturday, April 21st at 9am, a hundred Generation Identity activists took position in the Alps at the Col de l’Échelle, 25 km from Briançon, to block the path for illegal migrants. Our teams are patrolling the area and will stop any attempt to enter France illegally.
Since the summer of 2017, the flow of illegal migrants using this passage has grown continuously. More than 2000 illegal migrants have already been officially registered. How many actually got through? Macron’s government refuses to secure the border: we will prove that if there is the will, it is absolutely possible. Rather than releasing funds to create new reception centers for these migrants, the border police budgets should be strengthened.
Generation Identity demands an end to mass immigration and the definitive closing of the Col de l’Échelle passage. No migrants should be allowed to enter France illegally on this route. The French do not want any more immigration! These illegal migrants should be neither in France nor in Italy, but in their home country. The Defend Europe “Alps” operation has started!
