French national front leader Marine Le Pen is in Italy headlining a convention of European nationalist parties.
Le Pen was joined Thursday by Matteo Salvini, the leader of Italy’s Northern League, which shares the Front’s anti-immigrant and Euroskeptic line.
In opening remarks, Le Pen said the influx of migrants arriving on the continent would “impoverish European nations and kill their civility forever, ” we must defend our rights as citizens in this continent and must not let our identity to be overshadowed by outsiders no matter what ” she said.
The rally is being billed by organizers as the first congress of the Europe of Nations and Freedom group within the European Parliament, which was formed last year.
