Survival International - unless you're European?

I recall being a fan of Survival International from a young age.

But what about the threatened villages and cultures of Europe?

Some indigenous Germanic communities are threatened by an influx of "migrants".
Their whole world collapses and must change.

But these are the indigenous peoples of Europe.

They also have forests, and music, costumes and native languages.

But nobody is rallying to save them.

Why is that?

Why this hypocrisy?

Are we not worth saving?

There's no inherent difference between saving my tribe in Europe, and a tribe in the

Yet, it's not treated equally.

Show me one petition - our village must stay pristine.

What a racist bunch of hypocrites the Left are.

And we actually made our forest grow back, and don't go fishing with dynamite.

That's because those that are making the rules and control the media want you dead and gone.


It's the same all over.

This hill figure has been maintained for thousands of years.

The White horse of Uffington is a considerable enigma. Thought to be over a couple of millennia old, but how such a fragile monument could survive the centuries is perhaps confusing. The simple answer is by ritual stripping or scouring of the horse.

Volunteers for the Scouring should book in advance via the National Trust website but in practice all are welcome even if they turn up unannounced on the day. Scourers work in half-hour slots. The event formerly took place in May but has moved in 2016 in the hope of more clement weather conditions!

In 2016 it was on July 2nd- see link for full details – 2017 date is yet to be announced.

“Another geaam wur to bowl a cheese down the Mainger, and the first as could catch ‘un had ‘un. The cheese was a tough ‘un and held together.”

Early references suggest the midsummer solstice as the original festive season at Uffington. Certainly the rolling of cheeses is significant, folklorists have often draw a connection between this sport and the turning of the year, the cheese representing the sun

Cheese rolling used to be carried out with a wooden disc representing the sun. The winner was sun king for a year, then exile. It was a way of breeding fearless warriors. Allegedly.

The 'Horse' of Uffington is actually a native albino leopard.

The figure is believed to be that of a stylised running horse although a review of the original head structure and curvature of the legs has caused some researchers to suggest that it actually a represents a large cat from the lion or leopard family. However, as early references from Abbingdon Abbey, which date back to 1072 AD, refer to the area where it is found as "Mons Albi Equi" (Hill-White-Equine) it is generally accepted to be a horse. What is most remarkable is that the figure was created by carving through turf to reveal the white chalk underneath. As such it requires regular maintenance or it will disappear within 150 years. This means there has been an unbroken chain of people prepared to look after this prehistoric monument for 3,000 years. (Carving in turf to reveal underlying chalk with additional trenches.)

This is a fraction of the enduring culture of my people.

Cheese rolling was a tactic used in Medieval times against the French.
Or If it wasn't it should have been.

Oh and the only English martial art Morris Dancing.

Apart from The Lancastrian art of eckie thump.

Oh and I dont think it is as bad as some say sure there are problems but people will fit in.

Not so. Naked clog fighting is still practised in sacred groves at midnight. Plod have to look the other way due to 'cultural sensitivity'.

Believe it or not but naked clog fighting was a mysterious and illegal sport that existed in Northern mining communities for hundreds of years. Now Gallery Oldham is staging an exhibition examining the myths of the brutal underground ‘purring, clogging or Fighting Wigan Fashion’.

Unprotected shins would be kicked by heavy wooden clogs with metal soles, bouts that only declined along with dwindling clog-wearing after the Second World War. Fighters grappling with opponents were naked or wearing their finest clothing in bouts in the North of England and Wales. Corrugated shins would be paraded as badges of honour.

Artist Anna FC Smith spoke to 30 participants about their ancestors’ recollections of the sport. For 200 years, it spread in mining communities from Wigan to Oldham, Rochdale, Wales and the North East. None were directly involved in the bouts but a handful were paid to be ‘look-outs’ as children.

“Although it was violent, it was only as violent as bare-knuckle fighting is,” Smith says. “People came forward with some fascinating stories. Who would have thought that these fights were a regular occurrence on land outside the Colliers Arms at Hartshead Pike?

“Gambling also played a part and the winners would take a share of the takings. The fights would begin with a rattle of the clogs in a Cuban-style flourish to unsettle their opponent.”

Indigenous people of Europe my left buttock. There is only one race in this species. Human. Geography could not be less important. Their whole world is NOT collapsing, and if a persons worldview prevents them from being able to tolerate change, then that is a problem with them, not something they need saving from, but something they need to grow up, shake off, and grow a set over.

Pathetic, mewling, weaklings.

Things change all the time, population dynamics, economic growth projections, stability of certain markets, the weather, the climate, the time of day and the political narrative being paid for by one or another cartel or large corporate structure. Adapt or die, Darwin or the deep blue sea, pick one, and live or die by the choice you make. This is some sensationalist nonsense if I ever heard it, by Christ what a crapshow

Of course the descendants of the Celtic, Germanic and Slavic peoples are the indigenous populations of Europe.
One could add some other ethnic minorities, and even communities with legal immigration background, not all of whom are thrilled with recent developments either.

However, you seem to argue that the very status of "indigenous" vs. "non-indigenous" divides people into "species".
OK, then give up the label of "indigenous" and "indigenous rights" everywhere.
Then countries like Japan should also open their borders and takes uncapped numbers of migrants, like Germany or Sweden, and also the Gulf States, and when Saudi Arabia wants to build 200 mosques for their Trojan horse army in Germany, Christians should be able to build 200 new hard-line churches in Saudi Arabia.
Perhaps Israel can also take 1 million Islamic migrants.
Or how about Botswana, where illegal migrants are caned before being deported.
Fine with me.

Except the global Left, Bilderberg and Agenda 21 leaders and pressure groups don't actually demand that.
They only treat the Europeans like a separate species, and everyone must have access to their countries, and if you disagree you're a "Nazi" or a "racist".
They openly said the migrant crisis (in cahoots with human traffickers connected to the mafia and ISIL) is meant to destroy European homogeneity.
Everyone is pawns in their game, including many of the migrants, who will find themselves in an increasingly disappointing and chaotic situation.

Not that all countries or regions are equally affected at the moment (well, some Eastern European countries have told the globalists straight out where they can stick their agenda).
However, thinking of some villages in Germany that had to take an influx of largely culturally intransigent Islamic men who regard non-Muslim Europeans as inferior, the increase in crime, rape and harassment has meant their world changed for the worse. Never mind the terror threat and the resulting surveillance state, and the major left/right rifts in society. That is not normal change by any definition.
Whether they should stop complaining or start resisting more remains to be seen.
For now they have every right to complain for the future and safety of their kids.

Suffice to say though that if a village in the Amazon had to a take 3000 largely aggressive Islamist men to sponge of them the left would scream blue murder.
And rightfully so.
