The European nationalist foundation, Europa Terra Nostra, held another successful meeting of its board members last week. This time, the board members from Sweden, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Greece, the Czech Republic, and their Slovakian hosts met in the capital city of the Slovakian Republic, Bratislava.

Dan Eriksson (Sweden), the chairman of the ETN, opened the meeting on September 21, when he presented and talked about the activities and achievements of the foundation. He pointed out the problems and the pressure on our foundation coming from the European Parliament, which denies the funding for the ETN guaranteed by EU law. He also informed the rest of the board members of the ongoing legal struggle to obtain the funding and plans and projects realized as soon as the funding are obtained.

The board member from Croatia, Ivan Bilokapic, then presented his ideas for future projects. His suggestion of organising an international conference regarding the questions of self-determination, safety, and the rights of the white South Africans to form their own state was positively accepted by the board members, and the suggested conference should take place soon in Brussels, Belgium after the legal battle for the foundation funding.

“European patriots must do everything they can to protect and secure the rights of the Afrikaners. The struggle for the survival of white South Africans is a struggle for ourselves. If we cannot protect our own people in South Africa, how will we be able to protect ourselves in the future?”  – said Bilokapic. Also, a bigger focus on social policies, economic alternatives, and workers’ rights was suggested by the Croatian board member, which should give new dynamics to the far-right movements and parties across Europe.

The Italian representative, Nicola Cospito, added that the key to success for the European nationalists and patriots, besides the migrant crisis, is a bigger focus on social issues. „Whoever thinks national, also thinks social,“ added Cospito.

The Slovakian hosts from the successful far right party, “Kotleba – People’s Party Our Slovakia”, also exchanged ideas and took the ETN board members for a visit to the Slovakian National Parliament and their party office, where further discussions and idea exchanges were held.

The Slovakian nationalists achieved good results in the elections, having fourteen representatives in the national parliament. The ETN board member and Slovakian MP Milan Mazurek of the People’s Party Our Slovakia also said support for their party is growing stronger, and if current trends continue, the party will increase their number of seats to nineteen by next elections. They also expect great success in the upcoming elections for the European Parliament in 2019. The growing positive results for the Slovakian nationalists in the elections could lead to a bigger representation of the Alliance for Peace and Freedom in the European Parliament.

The Europa Terra Nostra board meeting ended officially on Saturday, September 23. The next conference organized by the foundation will be held in Göteborg, Sweden on October 28, 2017, where more than a hundred guests are expected.
