Also, let's give it up for our March member of the month, @Matthias, for planning our first conference! @everyone
@everyone A new channel has been added, <#432033043146866690>. Its purpose is self-evident in the name. Using my advanced server admin skills and unusually high verbal IQ, I was also able to wrangle a net reduction in the number of channels by 2. Those of you with limited vertical screen space can thank me later.
@everyone Friendly reminder that if you pay anything via PayPal, mark the payment as to "friends and family" rather than for "goods and services." The latter can bring about greater identity verification requirements for our account.
@everyone Reminder - Tomorrow (Tuesday) at 7 Eastern, Identity Evropa is hosting our first private online webinar available only to members! A new member who has spent years in professional politics and activism development will be delivering a presentation and taking a brief Q and A afterwards.
A private link will be distributed to membership a few minutes before the presentation.
I encourage everyone to set this time aside, especially if you are an activist!
@everyone Last November, IE activists in Southern California spoke at a major university and became a resounding success. 5 activists spoke to approximately 50 attendees from all around the area. Speeches spanned the gambit; from identarian coming-of-age stories to demographic statistics and population trends. Attendees made the event that much better by asking thoughtful and genuine questions.
After the lecture hall was cleaned and our equipment was packed, everyone migrated to local burger joint that had hipster undertones. There old friends mingled and new folks made lasting connections.
This May, IE Southern California is going to replicate last year's success. We're going to have new speakers, new topics, and a new venue! We plan on 80 people attending this time around and you should consider being one them! I cannot tell you too much; only that I will be speaking at the event which will take place in May. All the details due to operational security can't be announced just yet, but you should reach out to @PMT - CA who can help you plan coming out to this event!
A very special guest and new member to IE is hosting a private livestream only available to members tonight in one hour at 7 PM Eastern. He has spent years in professional politics and activism development. Don’t miss out!
@everyone here is the youtube link for Identity Evropa's very first webinar. Make yourselves comfortable and we will begin in just a few minutes.
No fireside tonight, as I’m in a different time zone and have to be up early tomorrow to return home.
in light of Patrick's absence, we will be having a 'serverside hangout' tonight instead of the more formally structured fireside.
Some of the other coordinators and myself will bring everyone up to speed on activism and recent events in IE, as well as talking about our very exciting action in DC a week from Saturday!
This will be very brief, we will do a quick Q and A and then open things up so people can mingle and chat within our community.
See you all there!
(oops forgot to mention) 8:30 EDT, as always.
@everyone "Serverside Hangout" will be starting in ~10 minutes!
As of early Friday morning, I'm home from Europe. I want to thank @Matthias and @Deleted User for holding down the fort while I was busy covering two events for Red Ice. I'd also like to thank Alex for hosting what I've heard was a resoundingly successful webinar.
We'll be doing a fireside this Wednesday at 8 PM EDT as usual. And then next weekend, we'll be doing our SA demonstration. If you're interested in chipping in to help make the event happen, you can do so here: http://paypal.me/MiguelRosalesNV (make sure to earmark your contribution).
The following weekend, I, and many others in IE, will be at AmRen. I'll be giving a brief presentation about Identity Evropa, and I'm sure that we'll be able to find a number of new recruits at the conference. Remember, everyone in IE is expected to bring in five people before the end of the year!
While traveling abroad, I read an interesting article from *Social Matter* that I'd like share with you all. It's a bit long, but it offers an interesting perspective on how to go about installing a new political class -- one that does not entail doing bad things to your local mailman. (https://www.socialmatter.net/2018/04/09/beyond-economic-political-class-traits/)
Anyways, I just wanted to touch base because I've been fairly quiet in here for the past week. I hope you're having a good weekend, and I'll see you all on Wednesday!
Let's all thank @FACINEMA for making the most of the video footage he was given. Unfortunately, the audio was messed up for some of it, but it turned out nicely nonetheless!
Although IE is an explicitly lawful, non-violent organization, it's important to remember that you must **never talk to police**.
This video -- a classic -- explains why.
SoCal delivered yet another phenomenal action. Well done!
More great activism, this time from the guys in North Atlantic. Fantastic!
There's a rumor circulating that our Discord servers are going to be "searched" due to the Charlottesville lawsuit. This isn't the case.
A few members freaked out over this and left all IE servers without even verifying that this is true. As always, I'm willing to change my mind in light of new evidence, but I'm in contact with our attorney and fully aware of what's happening in our legal battle, and you all have nothing to worry about.
This is the last call on the server for the South Africa action in Washington DC! The flash demonstration is this coming weekend. Soon, we are going to clear the server of anyone who has not confirmed and we will release the event location later this week.
If you want to support the action but can’t attend, consider donating (<#388558559752880139>) to offset the costs of the activist supplies, airbnb, and potentially even some food for the dozens of activists coming out. Thank you!
By now, many of you have seen the *Daily Stormer* article regarding Discord. I have a few things to say on the subject, but I want to first remind everyone to remain calm and approach this with a level head.
1. Many of the Discord servers that have been leaked in recent months -- TWP and PF in particular -- have likely had bad opsec. In the case of TWP, **they had an open Discord invite on their website.** IE also doesn't discuss illegal or unethical behavior -- nor do we engage in it -- so leaks from our Discord would be less damning.
2. Anglin is incorrect about the Charlottesville server being secure, assuming he's referring to the same one I'm thinking of. Invites were handed out in a careless manner, and everyone knew the server was compromised but chose to continue using it anyway for some reason. (I had no part in this, for the record, as I did not plan the event.)
3. The fact that the SPLC is working with Discord in some unspecified capacity is cause for concern, although I think people are blowing this out of proportion. The idea that you're going to have your life ruined because you posted anonymously in a Discord server seems really insane to me -- fearmongering at its worst. The TWP server was leaked, and yet there were, to my knowledge, no mass doxings.
4. With that said, migrating to another platform is likely a good decision in the long run. We're looking into alternatives right now. However, keep in mind that **if other groups being using platform X -- yet still employ sloppy opsec -- people could start freaking out about platform X being compromised** and whatnot. At some point, people will have to accept responsibility for poor opsec practices.
5. As previously stated, keep a level head. Discord deleted our original server after Charlottesville, and yet no one was doxed, nothing was leaked, etc.
We'll be talking more about this tonight at the fireside. 8:30 PM EDT. See you all there!
We’ll get started shortly. @everyone
@everyone Fireside chat RIGHT NOW! Get in general voice!
@everyone It isn't funny. It is incredibly rude to hotmic in the middle of our weekly meeting. You are interrupting the leader of IE in the middle of his address to the general membership. It takes two seconds to press the mute button in Discord. Please do it.
I would like to remind @everyone that every time you violate the rules, you put our server in jeopardy. If the server ever gets deleted, as our first one did, do you want to have to wonder if it was because of you? It is wrong to put your community at risk for your personal gratification. Familiarize yourself with the <#405211244023382016> and adhere to them with every post. It's the only right thing to do.
Last November, IE members in Southern California held a successful, private speaking event on a local campus. You can read more about that here: https://www.identityevropa.com/action-report/a-brighter-future
These same gentlemen are going to be holding another event on May 19 in San Diego. This one promises to be even bigger and better than the first. We’re going to make a weekend out of it, so there will be a dinner and an action as well -- both voluntary, of course.
As usual, we’re keeping most of the specifics confidential for the time being. But you can reach out to @PMT - CA if you’re interested in attending. I’m certainly going, so I hope to see you there!
@everyone Check out the above post! ^
The action went well today! Pictures coming soon!
First tweet! Spread this tweet everywhere!
ANOTHER phenomenal action this weekend! Let's give it up for @John O -, who, to my knowledge, made this sexy banner by himself in his living room. Well done!
The next position needed in Identity Evropa is a skilled Wordpress editor to assist us with the website. We’re asking for experience with the various graphics and formatting tools especially. If you’re available to help, please contact me.
We just posted the video from our recent Purdue Pharma action. Let's give it up for @Deleted User, who edited the video, in addition to everyone who participated.
We're putting out top notch activism at such an incredibly high rate. The future of this organization is brighter than ever!
@everyone When you post, write out whatever you were planning to say, then stop, step back for a moment, read it, and ask yourself if it really belongs here.
Congratulations to @JesseJames and our Kentucky chapter for a very meaningful action at the Jefferson Davis statue in Frankfort, KY. Those who think they can destroy our history are sorely mistaken. Our heroes will not be forgotten and we will not be replaced!
Fireside tonight at 8:30 PM EST. See you there! @everyone
With regard to the subpoenas issued to Discord:
First, it appears that those Discord users who received notice of the subpoena were only users specifically named in the subpoena. That is, there is no general subpoena to “every account on Discord."
Second, we are in the process of retaining a First Amendment attorney in California (where the subpoena must be resolved) who, in collaboration with Kyle Bristow and in coordination with IE leadership, will file a motion to quash the subpoena on behalf of all the users named in it.
The grounds for the motion lie in the First Amendment’s freedom of assembly and freedom of speech; there is a healthy body of case law designed to protect the identities of members of political groups from public harassment and embarrassment brought on by overzealous plaintiffs on “fishing expeditions” in civil cases.
We think this is a critical step in standing against the political and economic intimidation from the over-powered left that have infected this case since its inception. It is a step separate and apart from our ongoing litigation in Charlottesville and will be filed in a separate court altogether.
**We need to raise $10,000.00 dollars to hire the First Amendment attorney in California. About $3,500.00 has already been raised. We need to raise it within a week.**
I know we ask for money a lot on this issue but, to put it in perspective, the number of lawyers representing the plaintiffs in this case is twenty-one. They have endless resources. We have to be infinitely more resilient and dedicated than they are to stand a fighting chance. Moreover, should we fail in this endeavor, it may lead to further subpoenas that affect more of us.
**Donate to this cause to help defend your fellow IE members named in the subpoena through our PayPal account, https://www.paypal.me/TyroneGWashington. Please earmark the donation for the subpoena.**
If you have any questions aplease contact @Deleted User.
@everyone If you are a web designer, please DM me.
NEW PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/TyroneGWashington
Do not use the old one anymore. This one is the last we'll need to use before we get our business account set up.
Please remember to send money to family and friends, not pay for goods and services!
The first episode of *Identitarian Action* has been released! I hope you enjoy it.
Let's give a big round of applause for the Florida chapter for pulling off an aesthetic and successful fifty foot banner drop this afternoon! @John O - and the gang (@Pinochetball @Treader @Attrition in the desert @Grossly Incandescent <@!403304602910326786>) keep on delivering!
A small dues purge is coming tonight!
