Mr. President, you can not decide alone to deprive us of our homeland. French Generals against treat
Updated: Dec 16, 2019
They are very turbulent times. If you ever wondered what it would be like during the French Revolution, then this is the moment. It is now known that a group of French generals and admirals is against the treaty of Marrakesh and that it has been announced to the French President by communique. Original communique in French HERE
The translation follows below and leaves no ambiguity that the Yellow Vests can count on sympathy and understanding of the higher framework of the French Army:
Paris, December 7, 2018
You are about to sign the "Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration" on December 10 and 11, which establishes a genuine right to migration. It may impose itself on our national legislation through pre-existing treaties or the principle of common responsibility set out in this pact.
It seems to us that the only sovereignty that will remain with France will consist in freely setting the way in which the objectives of the pact will have to be implemented. You can not give up this new part of the national sovereignty without a public debate whereas 80% of the French population considers that it is necessary to stop or regulate the immigration drastically. By deciding alone to sign this pact, you would add an additional reason for revolt to the anger of an already battered people. You would be guilty of a denial of democracy or treason against the nation.
In addition, the finances of our country are drained and our debt is growing. You can not take the risk of an expensive call for air migration without first showing that you will not have to resort to more taxes to meet the objectives of the pact. On the other hand, you must be able, in terms of security, to curb the consequences linked to the arrival of extra-European populations. Finally, you can not ignore that the very essence of politics is to ensure security on the outside and harmony within. However, this harmony can only be achieved if we maintain a certain internal coherence of society, the only one capable of allowing us to do together what is becoming more and more problematic today..
Indeed, the French State is late in coming to realize the impossibility of integrating too many populations, in addition to totally different culture, which have regrouped over the last forty years in areas that no longer submit to the laws of the Republic.
You can not decide alone to erase our civilizational landmarks and deprive us of our carnal homeland.
We therefore ask you to defer the signing of this pact and call by referendum the French to vote on this document. You are accountable to the French of your actions. Your election is not a blank check.
We support the initiative of General MARTINEZ against the signature of this pact to be adopted by the Member States of the UN at the Intergovernmental Conference of Marrakesh.
