The anti-system team published posters against "gender ideology" in 300 schools


Escudo Identitário, which was created in 2017, has spread to more than 1,000 posters in about 300 schools across the country, against what it calls a "gender ideology," warning of the "risk" it recommends. He denies fascism and the extremism attributed to them.

"We strive for social prosperity, Portuguese sovereignty and identity, but also for traditional European values." In capital letters, just as it is transcribed. This describes the "Shield of Identity" on Facebook, where it says "patriot" and "non-Communist", and publishes some of the actions it takes.

Asked by JN, the Central Identity Security Committee explained in a written reply by email that it was born of the need to create a "post-political movement that overcame the old and dumb right-left partition and fought for common ideals" to the Portuguese and European people. Today there are over 200 young people – mostly men, but there are women – all over the country. They say they are struggling "in the world of nihilism, hedonism and apathy."

The latest action released by the group – which caused a wave of criticism on the Internet – took place last Sunday and consisted of more than 1,000 posters in relation to the so-called "gender ideology" in more than 300 schools Porto, Gaia, Lisbon, Montjuic, Almada, Cascais, Oeira, Loures and Faro. "We know that schools are" illuminated "to convey their ideas, the main successors of these absurdities fear an open, free and rational debate because they know that their ideas do not last for two seconds under control," the Commission says.

But what is this "gender ideology" in which the group speaks so much and is written with bold letters on the posters in the school walls? It is, the team responds, the idea that "gender and gender are different and unrelated things". In addition to recognizing "any sense" at the beginning – which is recognized by Portuguese law -, he notes that he has no scientific support.

And who are these "enlightened"? "As a rule, they are academic professors who justify their positions with absurd and absurd dissertations" imported from the United States, "at a time when even these progressive movements are in full retreat," the group blames. "As soon as a free debate on these issues took place, the home of the cards fell, and that's what we want to do in Portugal."

The purpose of this action, explained the Shield of Identity, was to provoke conversation, avoid taboo, and attract more people to the page of the organization. The two items on the agenda were achieved, but the reaction of the public was not very positive. There have been many critical voices that have emerged, while some consider the practices of "fascist" and "extremist". The "Shield" responds that it is not revised with the words: "The only lesson to be taken of these criticisms is spiritual laziness. Instead of creating solid and well-documented arguments (people who criticize) prefer to resort to ad-hominem mistakes. we are neither fascists nor extremists, we are young Portuguese who are fighting for our ideals. "

Despite the threats they claim to receive – "only today, we have threatened more than 10 times" – they say that intimidation efforts have the opposite effect. "We see this as a sign that we are doing something right. We are fighting with the Status Quo, we are stinging an elite who considered itself to be dominant in this country and that it thought it was not an opposition, we are dealing with that with the certainty that this is the way that regardless of the threats, we will never reduce our weapons. "

JN recalls that the poster collage in public buildingsandis punishable by law (exception for political content and publicity), by imposing a fine. The law states that although municipalities are responsible for issuing poster placements in areas previously identified by the applicant, "interventions that declassify, alter, distort or dirty the appearance and appearance of monuments of religious, public interest and of historical or artistic value … ".

The law provides for "an evaluation of the thematic content or creative expression of this amendment, unless it is capable of substantiating the commission of a crime"Considering this Portugal recognizes "the right to self-determination of gender identity and gender expression", prohibits "any discrimination, whether direct or indirectand states that "the state must guarantee that measures in the education system … which promote the exercise of the right to self-determination of gender identity and gender expression", the actions of the target group can be considered responsible under the Civil Code.

In the near future, the group has planned a conference on the economy in Porto, for the next 17th, and celebrating the restoration of independence in Lisbon during the December 1 holiday.
