Right-Wing MP to Protest Against Global Migration Compact in Marrakesh

ZAGREB, December 5, 2018 - Hrvoje Zekanović, the sole MP of the HRAST party, announced at a press conference in the Croatian parliament on Wednesday that he and two of his colleagues from the civil society organisation Hrvatski Bedem would be in the Moroccan city of Marrakesh on December 10-11 to protest against the adoption of the UN Global Migration Compact.

Zekanović said they were angry because the Marrakesh agreement had not been discussed in the Croatian parliament and that they did not know the President's position on it either. He added that they would express their dissatisfaction at press conferences and in street protests, linking up with similar initiatives from other countries.

Željko Sačić of Hrvatski Bedem (Croatian Rampart) said they were travelling to Marrakesh to be "the voice of disenfranchised and totally democratically silenced Croatian people, champions of sovereignty who didn't have a chance to speak in the state institutions about this agreement."

"We couldn't speak about it in the cabinet, in parliament and before a parliamentary committee, we have been silenced. Zekanović is travelling to Marrakesh to say that we Croats, like our neighbours Hungarians, Italians, Czechs, Slovaks, our friends from the US, Japan and many other countries, are against the Marrakesh agreement and that we will do all in our power to ensure that this agreement, even if illegitimately adopted by Croatia, is not applied," Sačić said.

He said that the agreement would only put additional financial obligations on Croatia, which is already in a great demographic, social, economic and financial crisis, and that the adoption of the Marrakesh agreement could result in "an irreparable national disaster."

"We will do all we can to raise awareness of the Croatian people, despite the current ruling elite, to show what a great danger this globalist idea is to us," Sačić said.
