The Cultural Struggle


Reprinted by permission of 'Friends Of Europe' newsletter.

This is a special number of the FOE newsletter dedicated to the question of 'cultural struggle'. This newsletter is also being distributed by the Australian Heritage Society and other groups to advertise the European Settlement Day celebration of January 26 2003. This special event squarely addresses the question of cultural struggle.

Cultural struggle means Australians taking back the symbols of their heritage and identity from the agencies of the multi-racist/multiculturalist state. It is this state which lies about, and twists every expression of Australianism, into a celebration of its falsehoods. It is the 'Australian' state which denies both our European heritage and its local 'Australian' expression. It is this state which preaches New World Order 'no-borders' globalist culture.

Patriotic people, ordinary working Australians, should as a duty, attend family oriented events (including the grandparents to the new-born!) in order to celebrate their identity and heritage. Our children, in particular, are being denied a feeling of community and culture in modern Australia. It is a part of the nation's very survival that its youth, care about and know about, their history; without this awareness, there is no future.

The activists drawn from the various patriotic parties and groups also need to come together, to meet each other and have dialogue. Events like the Sydney Forum, which deals with the 'ideological' aspect of a broader identity-politics, shows what can be done. Non sectarian, inclusive events that breed co-operation, are efforts whose importance cannot be over-stated.

Our enemies intend to commit a type of genocide against white Australia. They have the state institutions under their control. Part of our counter-strategy must be to have all genuine patriots work together for common goals. We might never get the various nationalist and patriotic groups organised as a single party or movement, but we might achieve a united front around certain issues. All can take part in the cultural struggle. It doesn't matter what party or association (if any!) you are a member of.

The celebration of European Settlement Day on Australia Day 2003 at Botany Bay National Park, Kurnell, will be a show case for cooperation amongst several groups. It will bring members of several groups together to make it a success.

And what is being asked? Nothing earth-shaking, at least as some could understand it. It's just a matter of being at this BBQ event and not being at home in your own backyard; of being amongst other families and other people just like you! And yet, that might be the earth-shaking event! Being there, sending a small donation to get the day up and running, telling others to come (whether they're 'political' people or not), is all that's required.

Our horizon is not limited to one day, at Botany Bay National Park, one year. This should be an annual event. It could end up as a mass event. And why not? Further, there are other great days in the Australian calendar which also require special attention and not just in Sydney either, but in the other capitals and towns of our country. This celebration of Australianism could be the major breakthrough for the defence of our identity, independence and freedom that we have all desire. Once in motion, those who hate Australia might find it hard to stop! It's hard to protest against user-friendly, family and popular events.

We do not need to encourage overtly-political displays at any such events, nor will we at European Settlement Day in 2003. The presence of part of the patriotic community and leadership is itself a political statement sufficient for the purpose! Making friends and contacts also has a real purpose. Creating a united front around a matter that really counts raises our politics up out of the ballot-box politics favoured by some (you know, fighting a battle on the day of the enemy's choosing in ways dictated by him and about issues he controls!).

The Friends Of Europe newsletter has, as its role, making Australians aware of the various movements of nationalist politics in Europe. In that regard, I remind the 'politicals' reading this of the successful three-prong strategy of the French Front-National (I describe their method):

(i) the ballot box.: every ballot box (council, mayoral, regional, national and European) is used to legitimise, mobilise and develop the movement. Representatives are taught that they represent the people directly and their movement too, the latter not as a 'party machine', but as the articulator of the national identity. They fight tirelessly in the service of their people.

(ii) street/community level: at every union and association election, in every action that concerns the popular welfare - the Front National is there. Their posters and adhesives and leaflets appear in the streets and counter the lies of the marxist goons who front for the state.

At demonstrations (between the polling dates!), the nationalists show their strength and confirm their faith.

(iii) the cultural struggle: it is waged by defending and developing all the festivals of the nation and regions, by publishing, by educating the young and by developing groups that research and articulate heritage.

Success follows the application of all three parts of the strategy. This strategy adopted in the late 1970's, has produced results. No longer are they 'thin on the ground', but a mass movement and serious contenders for power in the national parliament, regional assemblies, councils and other instrumentalities (farmers groups, student leagues and unions).

We can do something similar here. Our road won't be a carbon-copy, but lessons can be applied.

It is not necessary for all who come to this event to follow this argument or support any particular group or party. It is only necessary they agree that celebrating Australia's heritage is a necessity. Indeed, the entire idea implicit in this project is that it represents many groups. The role of the FOE group and newsletter, like the role of the Australian Heritage Society, was merely to get the event discussed and then act to see this project under way. For the 2004 celebration, we hope to see a committee of interested persons building attendance into the hundreds.

For some years now, different people have discussed the possibility of celebrating Australia Day as a 'European Settlement Day'. In the fight in which we are engaged the significance of Australia Day has deepened as our enemies have intensified their scheme to abolish the very idea of Australia! It is now European civilization and its local 'Australian' identity that is under direct and ultimate challenge. We are not simply celebrating the foundation of a country on January 26 2003, but celebrating a very special representation of a civilization that in 150 years could disappear off the continent. No!

Winning our country back is a long road, but each journey starts with a single step. Be at European Settlement Day at Botany Bay National Park, next January 26, to take that step!
