04/06/2012 – 09 h45 VANNES/GWENED (NOVOpress Breizh) [Translation from the French by AR staff.] One hundred fifty people from all over Brittany gathered in Vannes Saturday afternoon for a conference on immigration that was streamed live over the Internet. This was the first meeting of its kind that united three different and often conflicting strands of the movement: supporters of Breton independence, partisans of a strong French state, and those who want a united Europe. As we will also see, the conference was attacked by a band of Islamists.
Jean-Claude Empereur, one of the speakers, reminded the audience that for the first time in history, Europeans are faced with a policy of demographic substitution. “The primary role of the sovereign,” he said, “is to protect the people,” adding, “the word ‘protection’ has disappeared from the political vocabulary but is now returning.”
Christine Tasin, head of Republican Resistance and a supporter of the traditional strong French state, argued that only the state has the means to enforce a coherent and effective policy on immigration. This view was not shared by Padrig Montauzier, editor of War Raok: the Voice of the Breton Nation, and a strong partisan of an independent Brittany. “Only those deeply rooted peoples with a strong ethnic sense can be the true ramparts against this invasion,” he said. “Only they will recognize the danger and take the necessary action.”
Philippe Milliau, who organized the meeting, concluded with reflections on the demographic reality that is at the heart of the migration problem. He noted that by 2050, Europe will account for only 5 percent of the world population, whereas Africa and especially sub-Saharan Africa will have doubled or tripled in population. Today’s 767 million black Africans will have become nearly 2 billion by 2050. For Mr. Milliau, this inescapable reality should lead to serious reflection on the most appropriate policies for dealing with what will be the major challenge of this century.
In the late afternoon, during a spirited debate between partisans of the traditional French state and Breton independence, some 40 Islamists and “youths” armed with rocks and tear gas grenades attacked the hotel where the meeting was being held. They managed to injure a participant before the forces of order arrived, but three of the aggressors were also injured. The police of Vannes (population 135,000) were able to send only five officers, but they quickly persuaded the thugs to decamp. The defeat of the Islamists was welcomed by the tourists at the hotel who had discovered an aspect of Brittany not normally advertized in tourist brochures.
Although ultra-leftist supporters of immigration often attack meetings organized by the identitarian movement—mostly to the satisfaction of the ultra-liberal system—this appears to be the first time Islamists have taken direct action against a meeting of this kind. This attack certainly showed the participants at the meeting—who have different and even opposing perspectives on some matters—that the themes raised during the conference are far from theoretical. As Paul Le Poulpe noted later on the website Riposte Laïque:
The Islamists were the very best glue to bring together differing points of view. Everyone at the conference saw clearly what the Islamists want: to act in France as they act everywhere in the world as soon as the balance of power is in their favor. They leave conquered populations just two choices: dhimmitude or conversion. As we saw yesterday in Brittany, the Islamists were met by Breton nationalists, French statists, identitarians, and other patriots who love their country and their values too much to permit them to be destroyed.
At Vannes, dhimmitude is clearly not on the agenda.

Vannes – Breton Conference on Immigration, June 2, 2012
Islamists attack the gathering organized by Young Brittany. They commit violent aggression against one of us, thinking we would not defend ourselves.
THEY WERE WRONG.
Have you had enough of the rabble?
Have you had enough of one-worldism?
