A Russian academic and four members of Russian NGOs were today banned altogether from entering the European Parliament in Brussels.
The last minute decision, ordered in an email from President Schulz late this morning, follows on from his diktat last week in which he banned democratically elected German MEP Udo Voigt and the European-level party The Alliance for Peace and Freedom (APF) from using the Parliament´s press room facility to hold a press conference about the growing threat of Cold and even ´Hot´ War in Europe.
Last week, Herr Schulz said that the Russian guests would still be allowed into the Parliament building. “His unilateral and unexplained decision to take this further with a total ban is a sign of the speed of the dangerous escalation of Cold War hysteria,” APF President Roberto Fiore said this afternoon.
The banned Russians are all named in Herr Schulz´s email (see attached). St Petersburg University Professor Alexander Sotnichenko, who had been due to speak at the press conference and in a discussion forum in the EP´s VoxBox TV facility, also spoke out against the ban:
“Europe criticises Russia for lack of freedom of speech, but in Russia you can say anything, including criticising the Government. But here in Brussels, you are forbidden even to meet, let alone speak freely.”
Udo Voigt agrees: “Restricting Russians from entering the European Parliament, just because they are Russian, is the new form of liberal racism. Discrimination against people based solely on their ethnicity is supposed to be a cardinal sin, but Russians alone seem to have been declared ´fair game´ – the new Jews of liberal Europe. Schulz of all people should be ashamed of himself.”
Despite the ban, the APF and their Russian guests held a very productive meeting in a hastily arranged hotel conference room. Among the matters discussed were the hysterical liberal media response to the APF presence at the National Conservative conference organised by Rodina in St Petersburg in March.
Also covered was the APF´s delegation last week to Syria, where representatives of the party including Herr Voigt and Mr Fiore, met with the Speaker of the Syrian Parliament, various government Ministers, the leaders of the Baath Party and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party and a number of Christian leaders including the Patriarch of the Syrian Orthodox Church.
The Russian delegation spoke of their shock at the sheer weight of blatant propaganda for mass immigration and an aggressive multi-culturalism in public spaces all over Brussels. “This is clearly not a matter of personal choice but is being ruthlessly imposed by the state,” said Andrey Petrov, a St Petersburg politician who is also involved in the Stalingrad Club discussion forum.
“Europe is occupied politically by the USA and is being stolen from the Europeans by mass immigration and Islamisation. Only the patriotic parties stand against this and we are very pleased to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our colleagues in the APF to argue for peace, identity and sovereignty.”
Journalists are reminded that the APF Press Conference about the visit to Syria and the planned campaign against the states funding the ISIS terror machine will be going ahead as scheduled in the Anna Politkovskaya Press Room in the European Parliament at 14.00 hours
