BELWEDER DECLARATION: “The Charter of Real Farming and Real Food”

Source: BELWEDER DECLARATION: “The Charter of Real Farming and Real Food”

Poland’s farmers speak up for “real farming and real food”:

Having in mind respect for the beautiful traditions of peasant family farms, which in a unique way contribute towards the preservation of culture and biodiversity of crops in the Polish countryside and the best foods available in Europe;

recognising [sic] the key role of small and medium farms in the protection and preservation of food sovereignty that is essential for the basic supply of food for the Nation;

and believing that the only way that can guarantee optimal health and good condition of natural environment is the promotion of a diet based on local high-quality foods and the preservation of country landscape marked by natural biodiversity,

we demand that the President and the Polish Government:

Immediately start implementing a conscious policy whose aim is the protection and promotion of true qualities of the Polish countryside which serve the Polish Nation, and which are currently being irrevocably devastated by rapid globalisation and development of industrial farming,

[and to] remove the restrictions concerning the possibility to buy a full range of products from local farmers by shops, schools, restaurants and other institutions… 

We urge the President and the Polish Government to protect the unique geographical and historical strength of Poland based on traditional Polish countryside and create/draw a new vision of farming in order to prevent the imminent global catastrophe that threatens life and health of mankind and biodiversity.

Another reason to say,

Bóg błogosławi polską!

(God bless Poland!)

Douglas Murray on mass migration, lack of borders

“The public are wondering whether this whole idea of mass migration, of this borderless world is such a good idea and I think the public has come to a different conclusion than the politicians.”

— Douglas Murray, in a BBC interview

“Europe, rise from your knees…”

Europe, rise from your knees - Polish PM

Indeed.

Prime Minister of Poland Beata Maria Szydło makes a cogent comment in the wake of the Manchester bombing in England, where a Moslem suicide bomber, the British-born son of immigrants from Libya, killed 22 mostly teenage female (or pre-teen, in some cases) concert-goers and wounded 60 more. Most recent news is that two brothers and the father of the bomber have also been arrested, one in Britain and the others in Libya. Police are investigating ties to both ISIS and al-Qaeda.

Most official news reports seem to focus on Manchester remaining “united” and not letting this latest horrific incident “divide our community.” Sure, Britain, Europe, continue cuddling the vipers to your breast, and wondering why you’re getting bit…

Europe’s future-less “leadership”

Posted by an acquaintance on Facebook:

  • Macron, the newly elected French president, has no children.
  • German chancellor Angel Merkel has no children.
  • British Prime Minister Theresa May has no children.
  • Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni has no children.
  • Holland’s Mark Rutte, Sweden’s Stefan Löfven, Luxemburg’s Xavier Bettel, Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon—all have no children.
  • Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, has no children.

So a grossly disproportionate number of the people making decisions about Europe’s future have no direct personal stake in that future.

Suddenly, a lot of things seem to make more sense, now… in a sadly warped and twisted sort of way. I don’t know about the rest of you, but to me it’s downright scary, presented in such stark terms. No wonder they’re acting like such idiots. They simply, literally, Do. Not. Care. Because they will not have children to reap the bitter harvest from the rotten seeds they are sowing.

Every previous generation had to think about future generations. These individuals do not, because for them, there will be no future generations.

And it also points up the sad fact that the European birth-rate is in the tank. It’s a bit of a catch-22: people are less likely to have children if they don’t believe in their own future… and it’s hard to believe that there will even be a European future, unless that birth-rate gets back up there to at least replacement level – and at this point, restoration level!

Meanwhile, some of us – myself included – would love to have children, but sadly have not found a partner to share that dream…

 

Le Pen: Pope ‘Asks that States Go Against Their Own People’ by Opening Borders

French presidential frontrunner Marine Le Pen has criticised the Pope for pressuring Western countries to open their borders to migrants, accusing him of asking states to disregard their own citizens.

In an interview with La Croix International, the leader of the Front National chided Pope Francis for asking “that states go against the interests of their own people by not placing conditions on the acceptance of significant numbers of migrants” …

“To me, this falls within the realm of politics and even interference, since he is also a head of state” – e.g., the Vatican: “a walled city-state with some of the strictest immigration and citizenship rules in the world.”

Asked about her own religious views, Ms. Le Pen said: “I have a strong faith and I am fortunate in that I have never doubted it. However, I admit that I am angry with the Church because I think that it interferes in everything except what it should really be concerned with,” she added.

Vive la France! Vive Mme Le Pen! Au nom du peuple!

Czech Republic: We’d Rather Risk EU Penalties then be Forced to Take Migrants

The Czech Republic is better off risking sanctions than accepting migrants under the EU’s quota scheme, interior minister Milan Chovanec has said.

The Czech Republic is also taking a stand against forced immmigration / resettlement of migrants:

The Czech Republic is not prepared to accept any more than the 12 migrants it has already taken under the quota scheme set up by the European Union (EU) even if that means facing sanctions, the nation’s interior minister has said…

Vetting so-called refugees is “complicated”, the minister explained, adding that migrants “have not even been willing to remain in place [in Greek and Italian camps, while security checks take place”.

“We check thoroughly and in detail during the process, which takes between several weeks and more than two months.

“But these people [that the Czech Republic have been told to take in as refugees] were not prepared to remain in place while being vetted. Because of that, we haven’t given them security clearance.”

In this, the Czech Republic joins Poland and Hungary, which are also refusing to take more migrants, as mandated by the EU:

Italy, along with Germany, Sweden, Austria, and France have been vocal in demanding the EU cut subsidies to Hungary and Poland for their refusal to welcome migrants.

But Reuters reported that, worried about rising Euroskepticism, officials in Brussels are split on whether to open legal proceedings against Hungary and Poland.

As I have said previously, Eastern Europe may yet prove the bulwark of Western civilization. The Winged Hussars ride again!

Orban Easter Speech: “Battlefield Europe… Stop Mass Migration. The Future of Europe Is at Stake”

Calling international politics a “battlefield”, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán told newspaper Magyar Idők that Hungary’s sovereignty is under constant attack from foreign interests and the powerful left wing activist George Soros. Adding that mass migration threatens the future of Europe, he urged for the preservation of Christian civilisation.

“This is what our future stands or falls on,” he said, “the fate of Europe. The question is whether the character of European nations will be determined by the same spirit, civilisation, culture and mentality as in our parents’ and grandparents’ time, or by something completely different.”

“…we want to preserve the foundations of Europe. We do not want parallel societies, we do not want population exchanges, and we do not want to replace Christian civilisation with a different kind. Therefore we are building fences, defending ourselves, and not allowing migrants to flood us.”

It appears that Eastern Europe is more alert, awake, and aware of the threats posed to Western Civilization by mass immigration than the traditional Western power centers like France, Germany, and even (despite Brexit, and although Prime Minister Theresa May has said and done some encouraging things) the UK. Nation-states like Hungary, Poland, and Czechoslovakia may yet prove the bulwark of the West – or its last hope of survival.
