U Evropskom Parlamentu formirana Grupa za zastitu Identiteta-Tradicije i Suvereniteta Evrope..
Clanovi grupe su evropski parlamentarci iz vise zemalja..
The first major European Nationalist grouping in the European parliament officially launched its mission yesterday to defend "European identity" in the face of growing numbers of immigrants and the erosion of national sovereignty.
"We are in favour of upholding European identity, the identities of our individual countries. We want to uphold European tradition and yet remain modern," Bruno Gollnisch, the leader of the Identity, Tradition and Sovereignty (ITS) group, told the European parliament last night.
By forming an EU political grouping, ITS qualifies for up to £800,000 this year for its campaigns in European elections as well as access to parliament's legislative and procedural committees.
According to Mr Gollnisch, of the French National Front, the new group is necessary because existing “Eurosceptics”, such as the UK Independence Party, attack only the idea of an EU super-state but "do not properly defend Christian values, the family and European civilisation".
But even as it announced its formation, the ITS faced a constitutional challenge from the parliament's main political groups.
The centre-Right European People's Party - to which the British Conservatives are affiliated - and the Socialists, including Labour MEPs, are to table procedural objections.
"MEPs must have something in common to be a group," said the EPP's spokesman. "They might have some political affinity but it is not enough to form a group."
Even if the procedural challenge fails all parliamentary groups, including the UK Independence Party, are pledged to vote against ITS resolutions or candidates for parliamentary positions.
The fact that UKIP and the Conservatives are to vote alongside far left parties and seek to close down this new nationalist group in the European Parliament and also veto its resolutions shows the true nature of UKIP and the Tories. UKIP have sought to peddle their bogus ' patriotism' to the British people for years via the media that promote them as the Establishment safety valve to try and divert votes away from the BNP. The fact they are now going to vote against a group whose principles are for European Christianity, tradition and national sovereignty shows the true nature of the UKIP faction.
Recent defections to UKIP by senior ex-Tories at the same time as its branches such as Plymouth are shutting down due to mass resignations at the way the party is run, are evidence that the Establishment are determined to keep UKIP afloat so as to ensure any disgruntled Tories have a controlled party to vote for if they do not vote for Cameron’s conservatives. The fact that ex-senior Tories are joining the party also ensures that the Tories have direct influence within UKIP itself.
Mr Gollnisch said the group would fight for its existence in the European courts if the assembly attempted to block it. He said he believed the group would have "catalysing" effect.
The ITS group is founded on the following principles:
. Recognition of national interests, sovereignties, identities and differences.
. Commitment to Christian values, heritage, culture and the traditions of European civilisation.
. Commitment to the traditional family as the natural unit within society.
. Commitment to the freedoms and rights inherited by all.
. Commitment to the rule of law. Opposition to a unitary, bureaucratic, European super state.
. Commitment to direct accountability of governments to the people and the transparent management of public funds.
The new Group is made up of MEPs from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Italy, Romania and Mr. Ashley Mote – an independent representing South East England.
