In Europe, an ultranationalist group that classifies itself as "identitary" aims to prevent more refugees and migrants from reaching the continent. The group consists predominantly of young people and has members in different countries. Lorenzo Fiato, one of the leaders of the movement in Italy, says that "born Europeans are being replaced" and that "The Islamic religion offers a risk of disturbing public order and social and cultural values."

In May 2017, the group secured an inflatable boat to delay aid to Médecins Sans Frontières in the Mediterranean on a rescue mission. With this, the group itself states that the donations exceeded $ 100,000 dollars. Part of that money will be used to get a larger boat that will depart from the Italian coast to the Mediterranean with the aim of hampering the work of NGOs that rescue refugees and immigrants. The mission was called Defend Europe.
