December 7, a former French minister and 12 French military generals signed a letter accusing President Emmanuel Macron of treason if he signed the U.N. Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration without the consent of the French people, first reported by Voice of Europe.
“You can not give up this new part of the national sovereignty without a public debate whereas 80% of the French population considers that it is necessary to stop or regulate drastically the immigration.” the letter said. “By deciding alone to sign this pact, you would add an additional reason for revolt to the anger of an already battered people. You would be guilty of a denial of democracy or treason against the nation.”
The mainstream press has not reported this, nor has it adequately covered the level of insurrection occurring in France, which saw its fifth straight weekend of Yellow Vest riots over increased globalization and bureaucracy.
The pact was signed last week by 164 nations in Marrakech, Morocco. Along with drastically increasing the number of third world migrants that will make their way to the west, the pact also instructs governments to educate journalists on the terminology they should use when discussing migration, and makes no distinction between legal and illegal migration. Among those who did not sign onto the agreement were the United States, Austria, Hungary, Poland and Italy.
“In addition, the finances of our country are drained and our debt is growing. You can not take the risk of an expensive call for air migration without first showing that you will not have to resort to more taxes to meet the objectives of the pact. On the other hand, you must be able, in terms of security, to curb the consequences linked to the arrival of extra-European populations,” the letter continued.
The letter finished:
Finally, you can not ignore that the very essence of politics is to ensure security on the outside and harmony within. However, this concord can be obtained only if it maintains a certain internal coherence of the society alone capable of allowing to want to do together, which becomes more and more problematic today.
In fact, the French state is late in coming to realize the impossibility of integrating too many people, in addition to totally different cultures, who have regrouped in the last forty years in areas that no longer submit to the laws of the Republic.
You can not decide alone to erase our civilizational landmarks and deprive us of our carnal homeland.
We therefore ask you to defer the signing of this pact and call by referendum the French to vote on this document. You are accountable to the French of your actions. Your election is not a blank.
We support the initiative of General MARTINEZ against the signature of this pact which must be adopted by the Member States of the UN at the Intergovernmental Conference of Marrakech.
It was signed by Charles Millon, Former Minister of Defense, General Marc Bertucchi, General Philippe Chatenoud, General André Coustou, General Roland Dubois, General Daniel Grosmaire, General Christian Houdet, General Michel Issaverdens, Admiral Patrick Martin, General Christian Piquemal, General Daniel Schaeffer, General Didier Tauzin and Colonel Jean Louis Chanas.
Macron ignored the advice of his military leaders and signed away a bit more of France’s sovereignty anyway.
