Paris Generation Identitaire Leader: ‘This is the Last Election We Have’ to Make Powerful Solutions for France’s Future
Paris Génération Identitaire leader Pierre Larti gave a rare exclusive interview with Breitbart London saying harassment towards ethnic French by migrants is now commonplace in parts of Paris and the problem will only get worse if Macron wins.
In a small cafe in Paris’s 13th district, leader of the Paris branch of Génération Identitaire (GI), the French anti-mass migration Identitarian youth movement founded in 2012 who protest mass-migration and Islamisation, told Breitbart London his personal life has shaped his political leanings.
He said he and his brother were constantly harassed by men of foreign backgrounds simply for being French.
“Sometimes there was violence, I was beaten because I was the only French on public transport or on the streets,” explained Mr. Larti.
Larti then described one incident in which he and his brother had a knife held to their throat by a man and robbed for no other reason than their ethnicity.
According to the GI Paris chief, those types of experiences have become increasingly common for young people living in suburbs in the north of Paris. Women, in particular, he said, were targets for foreign-born men. “The conditions for women in France are terrible now. If you are a blonde woman in the north of Paris I wouldn’t give you five minutes without being harassed.”
The worsening conditions for women, along with the Cologne sex attacks in 2015, have brought many women into the movement, Larti said.
“You don’t feel [like you are] in your country anymore,” he said adding, “We have the right to live in our country with our values.”
