An activist group in the UK is using anti-terrorism barricades at Christmas markets as an opportunity to highlight the dangers of open borders and forced ‘cultural enrichment.’
Identity Britannia, which describes itself as a British youth patriotic movement, tagged the cement barriers outside Manchester’s Christmas festival with their logo, website, and the thought-provoking phrase, “Diversity is strength?”
The concrete blocks are being utilized across Europe this holiday season, and are intended to deter murderous jihadis from driving trucks through peaceful crowds of innocent men, women, and children, as they did at a Christmas market in Berlin last year, and other locations such as Nice, Barcelona, and Stockholm.
Additionally, the Manchester market features metal detectors at its entrances.
Manchester was also the scene of a horrific Islamist massacre earlier this year, carried out by Salman Abedi, son of Libyan ‘refugees,’ who detonated a suicide bomb at an Ariana Grande concert as its attendees exited the event, killing 23 and injuring over 500.
Concrete barriers have been deployed outside Christmas markets in Germany, some even featuring Chancellor Angela’s Merkel’s image, arms raised skyward, with the inscription, “I will protect you.”

Even worse - Christmas celebrations in France are being cancelled altogether.
Lyon cites an inability to afford the $24,000 security budget necessary to hold the event based on new requirements post-Berlin attack.
"The decision to cancel the 2017 market was a complicated and difficult one to take, but no solution could be found, despite our discussions with the town hall," claims a city projects manager.
Paris has suspended their world famous Christmas carnival on the Champs-Elysées, despite annually attracting over 15 million visitors and employees over 2,000 people.
A spokesman for the city claims Paris "wants to focus on offering visitors and Parisians more attractive and innovative events that will enhance the Champs-Élysées in a cultural and aesthetic dimension in keeping with this exceptional site."
However, Paris continues to host a Ramadan celebration every year.
