The Proclamation of London of the European Liberation Front is a 1949 political manifesto written by Euro-American Francis Parker Yockey. The work was first published in London calling for a reborn Europe. In 2012 publisher Wermod & Wermod issued a 84-page library edition of the Proclamation through their imprint The Palingenesis Project. The introductory essay of the book is written by identitarian Michael O'Meara, author of New Culture, New Right: Anti-Liberalism in Postmodern Europe and Toward the White Republic.
The declaration was originally published as a pamphlet by the European Liberation Front simultaneously in German, English, Spanish, Italian, French and Flemish languages. The pamphlet was envisioned as a rallying point for all Europeans from the Atlantic to the Urals, including their various extended colonies in the world. Yockey here called upon all Europeans to dismantle their nationalist conflicts, and gather around an European Empire with the intention of performing what he considered the holy duty of this European Imperium, as described in his magnum opus Imperium.
From the inside of the cover
The Proclamation of London is Francis Parker Yockey's distillment of his magnum opus - Imperium - into a fierce political manifesto. Written in three days in 1949, following his split with Sir Oswald Mosley's Union Movement, the Proclamation was intended as the founding document of Yockey's then newly formed group, the European Liberation Front. This is nothing less than Yockey's declaration of war against liberal, egalitarian, rationalist, materialist, and ultimately destructive modernity and the Americanist democratic world order of the post-war era. The Proclamation was originally published as a pamphlet, in which form it has enjoyed a number of underground reincarnations over the past six decades. Over half a century since Yockey's tragic end in 1960, the present is the first scholarly edition of this remarkable document, unique in the English language. It is also the first edition in a durable format. The full original text appears herein complete with an added index, dozens of footnotes, original artwork by Alex Kurtagic, and an introductory essay by Dr. Michael O'Meara, offering the most detailed and comprehensive treatment of Yockey in decades.—Wermod & Wermod, 2012
From the back cover
The Proclamation of London is Western Civilisation's answer to The Communist Manifesto of the Culture-distorter. Here is distilled the essence of all the primary ideas of Imperium, the magnum opus of the Genius of the Age: Francis Parker Yockey.
The Proclamation of London cogently explains the concept of Cultural Vitalism - the method by which the maladies of the European cultural organism can be diagnosed and the European Civilisation returned to fighting vigour.
The Proclamation of London is a clarion call for European unity, from the Atlantic to the Urals, including Europeans in any other part of the world.
The Proclamation of London defines the Spirit of the Age, and shows the way out of the spiritual syphilis of the Culture-distorter, whose festering hands reach over the globe, poisoning all they touch.
The Proclamation of London is the 21st Century Frontfighter's manual for the Liberation of Europe and the reclaiming of our Heritage and Destiny.

Francis Parker Yockey (1917 - 1960) was born in Chicago, Illinois. A prodigious pianist and a lawyer by training, he worked briefly for the United States War Department as a post-trial review attorney for the Nuremberg Trials in Germany, a post he eventually left in disgust at the Allied occupation of Germany and the biased proceedings of the Nuremberg tribunal. He is best known for his 1948 book, Imperium, a critique of 19th century rationalism and materialism that synthesised Oswald Spengler, Carl Schmitt, and Karl Haushofer's geopolitics.
