French Politician Urges Citizens to 'Fight the Great Replacement' in France
Former populist MP Marion Maréchal urges resistance to mass-migration in Europe
French former populist MP Marion Maréchal has urged the people of France to fight back and resist the "Great Replacement" in Europe.
Speaking at a major nationalist conference in France last weekend, the former National Rally (RN) MP called on French people to hold on to the culture of their ancestors by resisting mass-migration into Europe.
Maréchals made the calls during her address at the “Convention of the Right” in Paris.
During her speech, Maréchals warned her supporters that the massive demographic changes currently taking place in France and Europe are a critical issue that French citizens must address, Europe1 reports.
The "replacement theory," often referred to as the "Great Replacement," is the idea that the European population at large is being progressively replaced with non-European populations from Africa and the Middle East - through mass migration, demographic growth and a European drop in the birth rate
“The first major challenge, the most vital, is the great replacement, this demographic countdown, which already makes us realize the possibility of becoming a minority on the land of our ancestors,” Maréchal said.
Populist Maréchals then declared that if Great Replacement was to continue, it would produce a “multicultural society that wants to be fractured and violent.”
The idea of a Great Replacement, which asserts that mass migration and the idea of "replacement migration" can only result in social and political disorder, was first put forward by the well-known French writer Renaud Camus.
For Camus, the Great Replacement has resulted primarily due to a belief held by elites which holds that interchangeability of everything can be very much applied to humans.
In the past, Camus has said that human beings were becoming “a product, a producer, and a consumer all at once, a thing, a number, not a human being.”
During her address, Maréchal also urged the crowd to set aside petty differences, to come together as a single united French right, and to “break down yesterday’s partisan barriers.”
Despite not having put herself on this list of potential National Rally candidates for the 2022 French Presidential elections, Maréchal stated: “Tomorrow, and I am deeply convinced about this, we will be in power.”
“After 40 years of mass migration, Islamic lobbies, and political correctness, France is in the process of passing from the eldest daughter of the Catholic Church to becoming the little niece of Islam,” she said.
"Terrorism is only the tip of the iceberg — this is not the France that our grandparents fought for."
Maréchals speech represents a major comeback for her within French politics.
In 2017, she voluntary resigned as an MP to form the Institute of Social, Economic, and Political Sciences (ISSEP) in Lyon.
