Libertarian web sensation Lauren Southern was detained for a brief period today for attempting to prevent migrants from being trafficked into Italy alongside a group of French-based nationalists.
Southern livestreamed the entire incident on her Periscope account, which showed the chaotic incident to subscribers as it unfolded. As the large vessel came into view, Southern found her bearings. She declared, “If the politicians won’t stop the boats, then we’ll stop the boats!”
She claimed that the boat was Aquarius, the so-called “solidarity boat” that traffics migrants from the Libyan Sea to Sicily. Southern claims that their actions are illegal. A Zerohedge report from last year backed up Southern’s story. It elaborated on how various NGOs were flooding Europe with refugees:
“How high-minded the intentions of these organizations might be, their actions are criminal as most of these migrants are not eligible for being granted asylum and will end up on the streets of Rome or Paris and undermine Europe stability raising racially motivated social tensions…
During the two months of our observation, we have monitored at least 39,000 Africans illegally smuggled into Italy, which was done with the full consent of the Italian and European authorities.”
This lawlessness has continued unabated until Southern and her cohorts from “Génération Identitaire” engaged in civil disobedience to stop the process. They chanted “Illegal immigration, no more!” and blockaded the boat briefly until the Italian Coast Guard apprehended them. Génération Identitaire invited Southern, a native Canadian, to join them as a guest for this mission.
“We are 25 percent unemployment, social debt, multicultural collapse and an explosion of anti-white racism. We are broken families, and young French soldiers dying in Afghanistan,” Génération Identitaire states on their official declaration of war. “You won’t buy us with a condescending look, a state-paid job of misery, and a pat on the shoulder.”
Southern was detained with three men, and released shortly afterward. According to independent journalist Luke Rudkowski, it will be determined within 48 hours whether they receive formal charges.
