Dublin – Sunday the 22nd of January brought forth comrades from Flanders and France for a solidarity benefit and information night in support of the Afrikaner peoples hosted by Solidariteit-Identiteit in conjunction with the Dublin branch of the cultural organisation Studia Europae. The conference, the first event of the year for Studia Europae, was well attended by a mixed audience of both young and old from right across Ireland and indeed by a number of very welcome guests from other movements elsewhere in Europe.
Solidariteit-Identiteit is the Flanders based affiliate of Solidarite-Identites, a French non-profit organisation with friendly ties to CasaPound Italia, whose aim is to provide help and support to peoples struggling for their survival, the preservation of their culture and the defence of their identity.
The weekend kicked off with a number of small informal gatherings throughout the capital before the main event on Sunday. During the event a talk was delivered by a representative of Solidariteit-Identiteit followed by a discussion period over some food and drink.
Our friends from Solidariteit-Identiteit were very impressed with the Dublin meeting – this being a first time in Ireland for one – and by the level of support received from their Irish audience. A fundraiser and merchandise sale helped to raise a generous sum for the organisation whose tremendous work for the Afrikaner community does not go unnoticed by comrades here in Ireland.
As usual, Studia Europae had on sale a number of publications and music titles – both proving very popular.
Studia Europae and Folk Advance Éireann would like to thank all those who attended giving both their time and money towards a great cause. Special thanks to our overseas comrades who were in attendance.
Folk Advance Éireann wish at this time to reiterate our friendship and solidarity with our comrade Gianluca Iannone and with all of our friends and comrades at CasaPound Italia.
Our struggle is not easy, but one we undertake with great readiness and pride. The continued aversion met from both the global government of bankers and its servants only reinforce for us the righteous and just nature of our cause. We did not choose the path of easy opposition nor that of ‘yes-men’ politics, and it is for this that we face antagonism from every quarter.
Such aversion however has not deterred us from our duty nor can it ever hinder our commitment to cause. We remain as steadfast as ever, and for every minor setback that may befall us we advance with increased fortitude.
Comrades in Italy… Beir Bua!
Dublin – Sunday November 6 saw the onset of yet another successful conference held by Studia Europae, in conjunction with FAÉ and Fóram Átha Cliath, following on a series of similar events held over the past year.
On this occasion the main speaker, another prominent international guest, was Dr. Tomislav Sunić of Croatia and the US. This was Dr. Sunić’s first time in Ireland and thus his first time to address an Irish audience.
For those who do not already know of Dr. Sunić and his work, he is an author, translator, former Croatian diplomat and a former US professor of political science. He currently also serves on the board of directors of the American Third Position Party (A3P). He has written numerous books, both in English and French, pertaining to politics, metapolitics and European identity. His most recent publication ‘Postmortem Report – Cultural Examinations from Postmodernity’ forwarded by Professor Kevin MacDonald brings together a collection of his essays of the past decade dealing with topics that include religion, cultural pessimism, race, liberalism, democracy, multiculturalism and communism.
The third edition of his book ‘Against Democracy and Equality – The European New Right’ has also recently hit the shelves. Published by Arktos Media, who also had a collection of their books on sale through Studia Europae, it was one of a number of cultural and metapolitical titles by various publishers available on the day of the event. Music and stickers could also be found at the table.
Alongside the Irish audience were other comrades from various European movements who came to show their support and solidarity.
The topic of Dr. Sunić’s lecture was “The Balkanisation of Europe and Ernst Jünger’s Anarch and the endtimes”. The turnout for the conference was greater than anticipated. Towards the end of the speech people put forward questions to Tom and shared their ideas openly. Many books were purchased during and after the event, both from Studia Europae and Dr. Sunić directly. Dr. Sunić then took the time to sign copies of his books and chat with those in attendence.
The second day, Dr. Sunić enjoyed the company of a smaller number of folks who again met in the centre of Dublin to discuss in greater detail ideas and tactics for future development of European Identity and Civilization.
Overall the conference was an absolute success and already there are plans in the works to have another prominent speaker invited over very soon. More details to come!
Fóram Átha Cliath would again like to thank all those who attended and of extend our gratitude to Dr. Sunić for his visit.
Ní threabhadh tú pairc go brách á chasadh timpeall i do intinn! Onward!

Next mission: May 2010
Developing sport in the Serb enclaves of Kosovo!
In December 2008 we initiated the action to help Serbian sports clubs in Kosovo. We have brought in Kosovo, more precisely in Kososvka Mitrovica (northern Kosovo), all equipment necessary for the creation of a boxing club that was forming.
We were able to achieve this goal through a partnership with a French boxing club in the region Iséroise.
Our actions always being looked upon long-term and with continuity, we will start providing sports equipment in the spring of this year. We will deliver the following to Kosovska Mitrovica and the Serb enclaves in Kosovo:
- Equipment for football and basketball: balls, shorts, T-shirts, shoes.
- Boxing Equipment: gloves, shin pads, punching bags.
- Office equipment for the secretariat of the sports clubs.
Following the war, the Serbian youth was left with no activities and found themselves abandoned to the street while subjected to its vices. What is missing most in this disaster area (due to the anti-Serb pogroms and war), is material assistance to support and encourage initiatives to get young Serbs off the street! The boxing club that we helped last year now has 60 members. With the additional equipment that we will bring the hope is to double that number. 120 young Serbs who are training in boxing; this is how many young people will be mentally and physically strengthening themselves to face the terrible challenges of their lives – a people who have become a minority in their own land. When everything is gone (Serbian government, Serbian town halls etc.) it is these local football/basketball associations that will become the living and gathering areas for young Serbs.
Help the young Serbs to pull through!
You can help:
-If you have a large stock of sports equipment in very good condition
-If you can get this equipment at reduced cost

1- How was Zentropa born and who are you?
Zentropa was born from friendship and common political will. We are a community of comrades that try to fight the cultural, spiritual and moral desertification caused by modernity.
2- What are Zentropa’s goals?
There are many… First of all we aim at creating a physical community, alive and interdependent. A community of which each member is united by the ideal and their friendship. We also want to puzzle and create doubt in people’s minds. We want them to question their way of life, their future, push them to refuse materialism and initiate an intellectual and political revolt.
3- The most common critic made to the ‘Third Way’ is its anachronism, like other alternative ideologies. These anachronisms can be found in the symbols, methods and the political discourse. How can this attitude of looking backwards and the status quo be put to a stop without loosing the main focus?
Looking at the modern world, how can one condemn all types of nostalgia? Nostalgia is also the vivid and painful memory of everything which has been destroyed by the modern madness. The real issue posed by this nostalgic attitude is that it shouldn’t become an end in itself. The past should not be transformed into a dream of long gone and fantasized golden era or in a folkloric faithfulness to a time which was only an interlude in our long memory. On the other hand, nostalgia can be a fuel for fighting and building on! We’re not going backwards, this is a certainty, but we can dip the resources as well as paradigms in the past to build a future faithful to our ancestral identity and adapted to the modern world’s challenges.
4- Zentropa seems to be willing to compensate the fact people read less and less with a great sense of aesthetic and simple visual messages. Can you tell me more about it?
Let’s be clear, nothing can replace reading when you speak about culture or training militants. Articles and (even more) books are key for structuring the mind and for understanding of our world.
Unfortunately reading practices are lower and lower and we have to work around this.
We have to find ways for our message to be understood and to encourage people to seek deeper answers though reading. For us, image and sound aesthetics are ways to catch our readers’ interest and to push them to look further.
