Immigration Switzerland



How refreshing to see people reassert their will to survive as a people of shared values and ideas.

The media will paint their nationalism (self determination) in the worst possible light, but the fact remains, people have a right to organize themselves according to shared values, customs and sense of purpose. I applaud their move and if anyone holds views to the contrary, please engage me in the comments.

NOTE: This of course is an anathema to the EU potentates, who will (correctly) see it a foreboding sign of things yet to come in the upcoming elections for the fake EU parliament. Somewhere, deep in the bowels of the EU someone is saying:

”Oh that dreadful re-assertiveness of self determination! Don’t the Swiss know that it’s only for the 3rd world types (including terrorist entities) that are allowed such luxuries any more?”

GENEVA: Switzerland voted on Sunday to impose curbs on immigration by European Union citizens, in a nail-bitingly close referendum that threatened to ignite a row with Brussels.

Final results showed that 50.3 per cent of voters had backed the “Stop Mass Immigration” proposal pushed by right-wing populists, even though it could mean the demise of a raft of deals signed in 1999 with the EU including on the economic front.

“This is a turning point in our immigration policy,” said Toni Brunner, head of the Swiss People’s Party (SVP), which piloted the referendum campaign in a country that has steadfastly resisted joining the EU.

Switzerland’s seven-member multiparty government, the Federal Council, in which the SVP has one cabinet post, had opposed the measure on the grounds that it could hit the economy and undermine the country’s credibility as a negotiating partner.
