Message from Reinhard Wolff in Nice Respectable People Group #announcements
Props to @Deleted User and the rest of the North Atlantic guys who helped make this a reality. Great work!
In the words of Peter Sweden, "Please retweet."
The political identity paradox is an important concept for us to understand as Identitarians.
Social movements need a strong sense of group identity, to be sure; the issue, however, is that this can lead to isolation, which is a strategic dead end.
Fireside chat tonight at 8 PM EST! I look forward to speaking with you all there.
We'll be going over our goals for 2018, lessons learned from activism, and, as usual, I'll answer any questions you have (UFO-related or otherwise).
Don't forget, we'll be doing our weekly fireside chat at 8 PM EST! @everyone
We're getting started in a minute. Hop into general voice! @everyone
To donate to the IE legal fund via FMI:
Go to: https://www.guidestar.org/profile/81-1969574 > big red DONATE NOW > add "Identity Evropa" to "Make My Donation In Honor Of". Donations can be anonymous.
Please donate monthly rather than giving a lump sum if possible. We want to get our monthly donations up to 2800, given that we are paying for the lawsuit on a monthly basis.
Let’s give it up for @Conway - OK and the rest of our OK chapter! Great work.
Make sure to retweet:
Another successful Christmas banner! Let's all commend @_AltRight_Anew -AZ, @Deleted User, @MrDefault, and @John Westgate - AZ (and anyone else I missed) on a job well done.
We've got the best people, folks!
Let's give it up for @Joe-MN and the rest of our MN chapter, who created a great shrine to Justine Damond.
Make sure to retweet!
I checked the IE inbox on Twitter today and found the following messages:
SoCal did a nice banner drop today. Great work!
I want to gently remind everyone that we sent out an email recently regarding dues.
We'll likely send out one more in the upcoming weeks, but eventually we will remove people for non-payment. IE simply can't operate without dues, so we need all of our members to chip in. Also, it would be great if everyone could make up for the months they missed as well.
Have a great weekend! Merry Christmas.
You can go to https://www.identityevropa.com/members and click "My Info" to check your dues.
The emails have been sent out to people who have paid their dues at some point, but are currently behind on them.
There is an unfortunately high percentage of IE that has never paid dues. We'll be sending them an email in the upcoming weeks too.
So if you never paid your dues for whatever reason, now is the time to change that.
Please message me if you have not been added to your state server.
Props to our members in the Carolinas for the great banner drop!
@John Wesley-SC, despite being exposed to a harmful chemical at work this week, toughened up and made it happen.
Another phenomenal banner drop, this time from our Florida chapter!
On behalf of IE leadership, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Yule, or Kwan-
But seriously, I hope you all have a great day. I'm very glad to be part of this with all of you, and I'm looking forward to taking things to the next level in 2018.
Oh, and let's give it up for the LA guys, who created a superb banner and displayed it in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Great work!
Let's give it up for @FACINEMA, who created an excellent Christmas montage of our activism this holiday season.
We just published a brief action report summarizing our Christmas activism.
Let's retweet this!
From out activism coordinators:
A couple of things going forward into the new year.
1. **Unless you are doing basic siege, we will need a proposal form filled out**. This will help us see your vision more clearly, help yourself develop and think more thoroughly about your action, and will help us keep track of the many, many actions that will be going on in 2018. The form is super simple and easy, but think deeply about details and the intended impact of your action.
2. Concerning video and photos. You should be taking good quality photos at all of your actions with the best camera you have possible. We also want you to take video! Most actions will NOT get a standalone video, however; we want you practicing your videography skills. Go through Fascinima’s help sheet and follow his advice. Review the footage you get and see what worked, see what you should have done differently. Send the footage to fascinima and he may be able to use a clip or two in a future video, or he may love all of it and do a standalone. You need to practice and become skilled at filming, because the day will come when you’ll be needed to film a large event and you will want to be ready.
3. If you organize an environmental cleanup or community volunteering, please fill out a volunteer hours log! Ignore the “signed waiver section” until told otherwise.
To clarify, this means that you need to get all activism beyond simple flyering formally approved by the activism coordinators. Draft a proposal, send it to them, they will then possibly suggest some changes, and once everyone is on the same page, your activism plan will be approved.
If your action ends up being significantly different than your activism plan, we might not be able to use pictures, videos, etc. Just a heads up!
In light of the massive coverage our Damond memorial has garnered, we just posted a press release on the action.
Let's retweet this and spread it around!
Once again, props to @Joe-MN, @Envian, and our activism coordinators for helping to make this a reality.
Fireside chat tonight at 8 PM EST. We'll be discussing new activism procedures, plans for 2018, what we can learn from the Damond situation, and much more!
The purpose of IE Literature Club is not only to get our people reading, but to get our people to read things that are beneficial to them.
You will find a variety of literature posted here that will not only help you further your learning in politics, but help you with your finances, personal skills, relationships, health, and other personal interests.
How to use -
If you have a book you'd like to recommend and it's not in violation of IE's national rules, follow these steps-
1) Locate the category.
2) Locate the specific channel within the category.
3) Post book name and author name (maybe a small summary on why you're suggesting it.)
4) Post a picture of the cover of the book.
TIR stands for Today I Read - post anything new you might have learned today.
IE Reading List is a highly suggested list provided by leadership (unfinished.)
Our North Atlantic guys -- including @Thomas West (Hapa Spy) -- did some charity work over the weekend. Well done!
I want to see more of this in the future. Make it happen!
As many of you already know, our PA coordinator @Deleted User was arrested in Charlottesville. Between the court case (which he won, thankfully) and two activism-related, non-speeding tickets, Ian was set back $1100. This doesn’t include money he has spent on materials, gas, etc. while doing activism.
Ian posted this on his regional server, but I think we should all pitch in to help him out. Activism does entail risks, and when things go bad we can’t leave our guys hanging.
**I’m donating $25, and I hope everyone can at the very least match me.** paypal.me/EggPillEnterprises
(I have made Ian promise not to spend the money on anime figurines or Minecraft swords.)
Let's give it up for @Joe-MN, @Envian, and the rest of the MN chapter (along with our activism coordinators) for another great memorial!
Let's send this to as many MN politicians and news outlets as possible. Get to work @everyone!
I want to really stress the importance of sending this to local media etc. Joe has compiled a list in <#359892798071373824>.
If you have free time, please help boost this action.
