Spotlight : Generation Identity
Pictured Above Generation Identity Helping Homeless People in Dublin
Generation Identity in some countries called the Identitarians is a Europe-wide patriotic movement that promotes the values of our homeland, freedom and tradition through peaceful activism, political education, and community & cultural activities. Their goal is to reconquer social spaces of discourse which have been dominated by the left , have free and open debate about issues like mass immigration and create new pathways for the values of tradition and national pride and create a Love and awareness of our own ethno-cultural identity.
They believe that political change is not only possible in the parliaments and party politics, but also in cultural activities, public debates, the media and on the streets and act in a kind of “pre-political space” which determines discourse and thus serves as the basis for direct and concrete political decisions.
In this regard the movement has been very successful in capturing the publics attention . It does this through impressive publicity stunts .
In Vienna , one such stunt which captured the attention of a worldwide audience was the placing of a Muslim Veil over the Empress Maria Theresia monument , one of Vienna's most famous monuments . Martin Sellnar , the head of its Austrian Branch later said "The message was that if we dont stop whats happening now that will be the future of vienna , all our heritage that was built up will be destroyed " .
In Ireland , the Irish Branch which was started by 3 women , have also managed to attract both public and Media attention.

The group has also being active in other parts of the Country . After the people of Lisdoonvarna voted by 197 votes to 15 against the King Thomond Hotel being turned into accomodation for asylum seekers , but was forced on them anyway , generation identity posted this notice on the door of the King Thomond .
The Great Replacement
The “Great Replacement” is one of their key concepts as to whats happening in Europe . It describes the displacement and substitution of an autochthonous local by a non-native population, i.e. when locals are made into a minority within their own country by mass foreign immigration.
According to Former DCU President Professor Ferdinand von Prondzynski , unpublished UK-based research indicates that by as soon as 2050, indigenous Irish people could be an ethnic minority in Ireland with the bulk of the population consisting of a multicultural and multiethnic mix .
Their symbol, the lambda, was used by the Spartans at the battle of Thermopylae in 480BC. Led by King Leonidas of Sparta .
One of their most influential members is Martin Sellner , founder of the Austrian branch . Sellner said he became politically active in school around the age of 15 or 16 when he realised everyone wanted him to think in a certain way .. "I suddenly realised that everyone wanted me to think in a certain way .. and I became patriotic in that moment and I realised they dont want me to be one .. thats when I decided , i became rebellious in a way " he told a reporter .
The Irish Branch was started by three women , the leader is Damhnait McKenna from Belfast who says they have members from both divides , loyalist and nationalist coming together under a common goal .
