The Alliance of European National Movements (AENM), a group of patriotic parties devoted to preserving European civilisation, has expanded its membership base to nine nations with the addition of Portugal’s Partido Nacional Renovador and Sweden’s Nationaldemokraterna.
The announcement was made in a statement issued by Valerio Cignetti, Secretary General of the AENM, following the meeting last week of that organisation’s first General Assembly gathering in Strasbourg.
“The meeting also confirmed the previously elected political leadership,” Mr Cignetti said. “This consists of the president, Bruno Gollnisch, vice president Nick Griffin, treasurer Bleats Kovacs and myself,” he said.
“The addition of the two new parties means that the AENM now has the following members: France’s Front National, Hungary’s Jobbik, Italy’s Fiamma Tricolore, Britain’s British National Party, Ukraine’s Svoboda, Spain’s Movimiento Social Republicano, Belgium’s Front National du Belgique, Portugal’s Partido Nacional Renovador and Sweden’s Nationaldemokraterna.”
The common declaration of the members of the Alliance contains the demand for the “creation of a Europe of free, independent and equal nations in the framework of a confederation of sovereign nation states, refraining from taking decisions on matters properly taken by states themselves.”
In addition, the declaration calls for the “rejection of any attempt to create a centralist European super state.”
Furthermore, the AENM stands for the “promotion of the freedom, dignity and equal rights of every citizen, and opposition to all forms of totalitarianism” and calls for a “peaceful and humane settlement of immigration problems through, among other measures, international cooperation aiming at development and self sufficiency of third world countries.”
The AENM also calls for “strong policies in favour of families aiming at solving the demographic deficit in Europe and promoting traditional values throughout society” and seeks the “preservation of the diversity of Europe that results from the variety of our identities, traditions, languages and indigenous cultures.”
