In the year 2008, Fasoranti was named as the group’s leader.

He explained that the creation was important because “the community now needs a strengthened organization with a more successful strategy to combat the monstrous invasion of our culture and pride as a people more than ever before.”

“Only a more similar and involved leadership would be able to accomplish this. I’m no longer capable of doing so at 95, so it’s time for me to step back.
