Young Polish patriots are flocking to a new nationalist grouping. The National Movement, which is affiliated to the BNP-backed Alliance of European National Movements (AENM) is bringing together various different political and cultural organisations under one banner.
The largest group within the Polish National Movement is Młodzież Wszechpolska (All-Polish Youth). Last weekend it held a meeting to elect its new President, Tomasz Pałasz . As the afternoon turned into evening, those present turned out for disciplined and impressive torchlit procession through Warsaw.
The All-Polish Youth sum up their programme as:
Euroscepticism - against the Eurozone and EU
Nationalism - defending Polish culture, history and tradition
Catholicism - Christianity is recognised as a cornerstone of European civilization and the core of Polish culture.
Tradition - defending the traditional values of Europe, with all European nations having the right to free development according to their own traditions
Education - as a way of forming next generations of Poles, proud of their past and strong enough to build a nationalist future.
The outgoing President of All-Polish Youthn Robert Winnicki, has moved on to become a key figure in the National Movement, which intends to stand in next year´s European Parliamentary elections. If elected, their MEPs would become members of the AENM block arguing for national freedom, tradition and identity against the left-liberal consensus that still dominates Brussels.
Nick Griffin, Vice President and co-founder of the AENM, welcomes the news: "There is potentially huge support for nationalism in Poland. True Poles are very worried to see so many of their young people being forced into emigration by poor economic conditions - especially as the Polish liberal elite are now proposing addressing the resulting "labour shortage" by opening Poland to mass Third World immigration.
"I am very pleased to have played a small part in bringing the National Movement together by attending meetings in Warsaw and in Strasbourg. Although the BNP opposes mass eastern European immigration into Britain, we are not against the peoples of countries such as Poland.
"On the contrary, all the subject nations of the Brussels Empire have a common interest in working together to resist the attempt to destroy our heritage and our children´s future through creeping EU dictatorship, the continual Marxist assault on Christianity and the unholy leftist-capitalist alliance in favour of replacing us in our own homelands through mass immigration."
