French Regional Elections: Macron Warned against Controversial Bill on BioEthics (Risk for Humanity)

Written by ACM

french_regional_election_2021_a_round_figaro__eurofora_400


     *Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/-
Shortly Before the forthcoming Presidential Elections of 2022, the French People gave a Stern Warning to Emmanuel Macron at Today's Regional Election's Vote, in Front, particularly of the current Intrangeancy in  Imposing a Controversial and UnPopular Draft Bill on BioEthical Issues, Despite a persisting Opposition and repeated Rejections by the Senate, given, also, Recent Developments which have made it even More Dangerous for Humankind (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/pmamassivemenacelhumanite.html, etc). and nonobstand CoE's General Principle to Exclude Important Social Reforms during an Emergency Period because of Crisis, as the current Deadly Virus' Pandemic.

Opening Pandora's Box by the Introduction of Artificial Fabrications of Babies by Labos,  "Himeras" Human - Animals, TransGenic Embryos, "Experiments" with Genetic Manipulations, and Other Atrocities, (which Became radicaly More Dangerous for Humanity After a 11/2018 Revelation of the Fact that some Shady Technocrats Can even Transmit Genetic Manipulations to All Future Generations, See: ..., etc), that doomed Bill is due to be Returned Back to the National Assembly, as a Concession to Lesbians and a Maveric Technocratic Lobby, in a Few Days Time for a Final Vote.

Meanwhile, Key Critical NGO "Manif pour Tous", had Published the Results of an Enquiry on the Positions of Every Leading Candidate to these Regional Elections 2021, as far as that Controversial Reform is concerned, which has been Qualified, by the President of the French BioEhical Committee, and currently Head of a Top National Team of Experts during the Crisis, Professor Delfraissy, as a "Gap" Between the Government and the People, which had to be Bridged and Not Ignored, (See, f.ex. his Statements at the CoE's latest Conference in Strasbourg on such Important BioEthical Issues, at : ..., etc), while "Eurofora" and Others had already Warned that such Topical Issues Risk to Affect also the forthcoming, Crucial Presidential Elections of 2022.

=> That Became Today Obvious, by the Fact that Macron's Party UnExpectedly Failed to get More than something around the Minimum 10% required in order to be simply Allowed to Eventualy Participate, as a Small Minority, in the 2nd and Final Round of the Regional Elections, Next Week...

On the Contrary, the Candidates of the Center-Right (LR) and/or Rightist (NR) Parties, who had Mostly Condemned that Maveric Reform, or, at least, Reserved their Opinion on it, Unexpectedly got, Today, the Greatest Number of Popular Votes !

=> Thus, f.ex., the Mainstream "Republicans" (Center-Right), Became anew the 1st Party of France, with about 30% of the Votes, and are expected to Win at about 8 out of 13 Regions, Dominating in practicaly All the performant Regions which are Neighbouring Other European Countries and/or otherwise Internationalized, (Including that of the Capital City Paris).

In that context, First and Most Popular come the 3 "Sarkozy's Babies" Wauquiez, Bertrand, and Pecresse, (former Top Ministers in the 2007-2012 National Government), respectively at the Auvergne, Haut de France, and Paris' Regions, with Laurent Wauquiez, (the Closer to Sarkozy, and Most Opposed to Socialists' and Macron's Controversial and UnPopular Changes against basic BioEthiocal Principles), Succeeding to be the 1st in the Country, getting 45% of the Votes.

On the Contrary, "Socialist" former Minister of Holland, Notorious for her Provocative Attempts to Impose the Controvesial and UnPopular "Same Sex Marriage" between Homosexuals, (including giving Power to Homosexuals on Children under Pretext of "Adoption"), Najat Belkacem, reportedly Failed to ensure, at least, 10% of Votes, making it Uncertain if she might simply participate in the 2nd Round, or (rather) not...

At the North-West,  "Hauts de France" Region's Head, Xavier Bertrand, former Mainstream Center-Right "Republicans"' Minister at Sarkozy's Govenment, who arrived clearly First Today with reportedly 41% of the Votes, has also pronounced himself Against that Controversial and UnPopular attempt to Impose Artificial Fabrications of Children for Lesbians etc. Bertrand even Succeeded to Attract Macron's Unsuccesful Candidates, (who Unexpectedly Failed even to have any Possibility to Participate at the 2nd Round, since they got Less than 10%, Despite the presence of ...5 Ministers !), since they have just Declared that they intend to Support him at the Final Round with their Votes...

In the Paris' Region, Valerie Pecresse, (another former Key Minister of Sarkozy's Mainstream CenterRight  "Republicans"), who seems Also quite Opposed to Nowadays' Controversial and UnPopular attempt to Impose some very Dangerous Changes on the Law on BioEthics, gets More than +36% of the Votes, coming First.

Similarly, Jean Rottner, Center-Right "Republican" Leader at Strasbourg's Region of "Great East", who Prefers a "European Harmonisation" on such Controversial BioEthical Issues Instead of that UnPopular Draft Bill Now in Paris, arrives Clearly First, with More than +31% of the Votes, having a Fair Chance to Attract a Majority in the 2nd Round, (followed by the Rightists, Opposed to that UnPopular Change on BioEthics, with about 26%, while Macron's Candidates get Only 10%, and the Left almost 22%, Divided).

 

+ Moreover, Rightist ("National Rally) Candidate Mariani, (another Former Minister of Mainstream Center-Right Government of Sarkozy, and Nowadays MEP at EU Parliament in the Rightist Group "ID", pleading for a Unity of All the Right in the Future), who is Clearly Opposed to the current Controrersial and UnPopular Attempt to Reform Key Traditional Principles in BioEthics (Comp. Supra), managed to Arrive at the 1st Place in the PACA Region (with Marseille, Cannes and facing Italy) with More than 36% of the Votes, for the First Time in the History of that Party !

++ Last, but not least, at the Island of Corsica, it's the Autonomist Simeoni who comes 1st with 38% of the Votes. (even if his views on BioEthics are not clearly known yet).

---------------------------

All these Facts are, inevitably, under Reserve of What Might Happen, Finaly, If and When those almost ...67% of Abstentionists (an Historic Record, with +12% More than Back on 2015's Regional Elections) Might, perhaps, Express their Preferences on the 2nd Round, i.e. a Week Later... In other words, at least a partial, Last-Minute, "Come Back" of Macron's Candidates, here or there, canNot be, theoreticaly, Excluded a priori.

----------------------

=> At any case, In such conditions, Obviously, Macron would be Better advised to Find a way to Postpone or Drop, at last, that Controversial and UnPopular attempt to Impose so Dangerous Changes on the French BioEthics Law, wih Serious and Grave Risks against Humanity (Comp. Supra), as New Facts show Today that it's apparently the Only Way to have a fair Chance to be Re-Elected in the Crucial Presiential Election of 2022, ...which is Less than 10 Months' Time ahead of us !

EUParliament Defense Committee Chair Loiseau to EF: For EU Autonomy +S/E Med Energy (v. Turkey risk)

Written by ACM
Saturday, 19 June 2021

euparl_defense_committee_chair_loiseau__agg__uef__eurofora_400

*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- The Strategic Issue of the required High-Tech means for EU's Autonomy in Defense, and the Topical Issue of  How to Protect South-Eastern Mediterranen Energy Resources, mainly vis-a-vis Turkey's threats, were at the Focus of "Eurofora"s Questions to EU Parliament's Defense Committee's President, former French Minister for EU Affairs, Nathalie Loiseau, after an Invitation to a Video-Seminar on "Europe : a Global Player ?", organized by the Union of European Federalists in Strasbourg, on the occasion of the 1st Plenary of EU's landmark Conference on the Future of Europe (2O21-2022) at EU Parliament's Building this Saturday.

- "Eurofora" asked President Loiseau mainly What does the EU still Lacks, in terms of High-Tech Means, in order to have an Autonomous Defense, and How could we Protect the important New Energy Resources of South-Eastern Mediterranean, (Notoriously Threatened by Turkey even with WarShips), owned by EU Member States and/or Friendly Neighbouring Countries Ready and Willing to Cooperate with Europe, (particularly after the recent Extinction of the Northern Sea's deposits). In this regard, we Reminded, inter alia, on the 1st Point, also the Fact that, according to the previous Interview of an Experienced French General detached to the ESA, what was Mainly Lacking for EU's Autonomy would be an "Early Warning System" based on Space Technologies, (See, f.ex. : ..., etc).

    - "You are Right !", reacted spontaneously the Top Key MEP to "Eurofora"'s above mentioned Questions, pointing, at the Beginning, to the 1st one, concerning Space-related Technologies :

    - Indeed, "on Space", EU must have, "First of all", an "Access", by "a Launcher and a Base" of its own, withOut being obliged to use anyone Else's means, she Stressed from the outset, as a matter of Principle. (UE Already notoriously has a good Space Base at Kuru of French Guyane, and, when, in the Past, USA Restricted its Partners' Cooperation in Space activities Only into eventualy Participating in some "Tests" on Space, withOut Any active Role on Transports towards Space, "Eurofora" Co-Founder had sharply Suggested a PanEuropean Cooperation, making use of Russian "Soyuz" Launchers "at Kuru", and Historic f. President Chirac, indeed, Succeeded to Realize that, supporting De Gaule's famous idea for a "Greater Europe" ! But, obviously, it's Even Better for the EU to have its own Launcher too, f.ex. with an adequate Developemnt of "Ariadne", etc).

    + Concerning Earth "Observation Capacities" from the Space, "We (EU) Now Have" some, Thanks to Slow But Real Advances made with the "Galileo" Program, Despite a Delaying Obstructionism by the UK in the Past, and USA's Previous Attempts to Undermine EU's "Galileo" in order to Impose its "GPS", as she Reminded. (Comp. "Eurofora"s relevant Publications Earlier with Replies to Our Questions by former EU Commissioner, and Later EU Parliament's President, Antonio Tajani, from Italy, competent also for Space Tech.,  and f. EU Parliament's Rapporteur, from Germany, on "Galileo", as well as a Key f. Chinese Ambassador, first to Brussels for the EU and afterwards to Strasboug for the CoE, while Even China had, in the Meantime, Initialy Proposed to the EU an Offer of about 500 Millions € in order to Cooperate Together for the Development of "Galileo"'s Earth Observation capacities..., etc).

    + But we (EU) Need Also, for "Space Security", to be Able to Protect f.ex. "our Satellites", including by Knowing if, when, and who might, eventualy, attempt to approach and/or follow them, she added.

    F.ex., we Found out that a Russian Satellite had been Following Ours' Movements, But this was Only Thanks to Help given by our Friends from the USA. Nevertheless, when we Developed further Our Own, Independent Means for Space Security Surveillance, we Discovered that ..."Most" of the Foreign Satellites who attempted to Follow Ours, were, in Fact, ..."from the USA itself !", Loiseau revealed with a smile...

    - In General, However, as a matter of Principle, "We (EU) have Also to Overcome what is often Nick-Named as "The French Paradox" : Indeed, France usually Speaks very Well in Favour of European Defense Autonomy, But does Not Always Sufficiently Act as it Should...", she added in a Sincere Auto-Criticism of Paris, at least Some Times in the Past...

    + Concerning Other concrete Points where EU Defense's Autonomy Needs to be Boosted, well Beyond Space, the President of EU Parliament's Security and Defense Committee went on to Add also the current "Lack of Inter-Operability of Tanks" from various European Countries, and Pointed out at the Current "Franco-German" Projects for "a New Airplane Fighter", and "a New Tank", (etc), where EU's Recently Created "Fund" could Help considerably.

    But what we (EU) absolutely Need is also to become able to have an "On Flight ReFuelling" Capacity for Our Airplanes, that is Currently realized mainly by relevant Help from the USA, she Criticaly observed. *

    And to this is Added something which became obvious particularly in the Middle East, around Israel etc., consisting in Military "Drones", Loiseau added. In this regard, even if there is a Plan including Franco-German Cooperation for such EU Drones, nevertheless, a Problem is provoked particularly by the German "Socialists", who doN't want even to hear about any kind of "Armed" Drones, currently Blocking that, even if they still are supposed to be a Coaliion Partner in the Government (at the infamous "Gro-Ko"), Loiseau Denounced... Indeed, "Eurofora" has observed that, such kind of Obstacles seem to have, Recently, pushed f.ex. EU-Member Poland, when it needed to Buy some Armed Drones, after Finding Nothing of that kind to Buy in Germany, France, Italy, or the UK, etc., to be Obliged to Seek such Drones in ... Turkey (sic !). And that, Despite the fact that ...Easily Shooting Down such clumsy Turkish Drones, has Recently become a "Sport" by various Beligerants, (Even "Weak" ones), f.ex. mainly in Libya, but also in Syria, Iraq, or Armenia, etc...

Last, but not least, Loiseau pointed Also on the Importance for EU Member States to "Act All Together" in Key Foreign Policy Security and Defense "External Operations", Stigmatising f.ex. a Negative Case where Not Even 50% of the Required Military Forces had Not Yet been Deployed on the spot, as she said, But, on the Contrary, Felicitating EU's Readiness, f.ex., in Africa's "Sahel", to Collectively Deploy the necessary Forces, from More than "11 EU Member States", Including, f.ex., Tchechia, Esthonia, Italy, Greece, soon Lithuania, etc., United "Together at the BattleField".

+ Naturally, she Also Praised the Recent "Progress" made by the EU f.ex. in Boosting various High-Tech Joint Projects related to Defense, thanks to Reinfoced Cooperations between Many EU Member Countries, and with a Common EU Funding, as those which were, in Recent Years, Promoted at an Interesting EU Heads of State/Government Summit in Brussels, that "Eurofora" has covered on the spot, (See, f.ex. at: ...., etc).

Finaly, on USA's curent overall attitude, Loiseau said Earlier that she Believed Americans understood that a Strong European Defense is Good Also for NATO.

--------------------------------------

    ++ Concerning "Eurofora"'s 2nd Question on the Protection of S/E Mediterranean Energy Resources (Comp. Supra), the Experienced former French Minister observed from the outset, that "this is what is mainly at Stake in Our (EU's) Different vis-a-vis Turkey"....

    => In this regard, "We (EU) are going to Base our Defense Strategy on 2 Pilars : (A) the Freedom of Navigation, and (B) the International Law of the Sea", which Will be Promoted at the Program of the forthcoming French Presidency of the EU on 2022", she Announced.

    + Meanwhile, "Eurofora" noted that French Air Carrier "General De Gaulle", (which had been Previously Hindered to move as it had been Scheduled on April 2020 because of a Cluster related to the Virus' Pandemic), This Year, on 2021, on the Contrary has just Accomplished a Plan of Joint Security and Defense Exercise Together with EU Member Cyprus, whose EEZ is located at a Key Strategic Position for those Energy Sources, (and has Developed a strong Network of relevant Good Diplomatic Relations with Friendly Neighbouring Countries, also Rich in Oil/Gas "Off Shore" Resources, such as Israel, Egypt, etc).

    In the run up to the Crucial Forthcoming EU Summit in Brussels, later this June 2021, which is Notoriously due to Discuss and Decide on Turkey's Behavior vis a vis the EU, Turkish President Erdogan has just required an Exceptional Meeting with the French President Macron, from the Beginning of the Recent NATO Summit, where Nobody Else wasN't Allowed to be Present during their Discussion behind Closed Doors, "Not even a Minister", as she pointed out Earlier Today.

    - Concerning Tukey's Controversial and UnPopular EU bid, "Nowadays, Nobody Wants that, at all, Not Even any Leftist MEPs !", Loiseau Clearly Stressed, (as Also the most Recent EU Parliament's Resolution and Amendments Voted on Turkey showed : See, f.ex., at ..., etc).

    Nevertheless, it's also a Fact that Turkey is traditionaly known for having a substantial Army, on whom had been partly based the West's Defense vis a vis Russia during the Cold War period, Loiseau Replied, Earlier, to anOther Question, raised by a German (Experienced former CoE's Top Official : Ulrich Bohner) Participant to the UEF's Seminar, about Whether she Believed that the Appearance of a so-called "Change" in Erdogan's Behavior, just a Few Weeks Before the above-mentioned, Crucial EU Summit's forthcoming Decisions on EU - Turkey Relations, might be Only an Hypocritical "Attempt to Lure" and Mislead Europe on Ankara's Real Intentions...

    However, "Eurofora" observed that Recent Facts clearly Indicate that, particularly After the so-called short "Putch" Attempt of 2016, and the Massive Arrests, Brutal Opression, Lynching Attacks by Mobs against Defenseless POWs, reported Rapes of Young Conscripts, Numerous Demands of Asylum Abroad by Turkish Army Officers, (including in Neighbouring Greece, Pseudo-"Trials" and Heavy Condemnations even of Top Key Army Leaders who used to hold Important Positions in the Recent Past, (etc), as a Result, the Turkish Army has, Surprisingly ... "Disappeared", almost "Vanished", from the 1st Rank of the Battle-Fields, in practicaly ALL the Numerous Violent Conflicts that Ankara's regime has Provoked, and/or in which it has Intervened During the Last 5 or 6 Years : Invasions of Afrin Eastern area, of Syria's Noth-Western Kurdish Region, inside Libya, Greek Borders at Evros River, Northern Iraq, at the Caucasus' Armenian Lands, (etc)...

    On the Contrary, Everywhere, Ankara has Notoriously  Started to Systematicaly push at the 1st Rank of the Battlefield Only several Groups of Foreign Armed Islamist Extremists' Gangs,  (some reportedly from various Former Terrorist Thugs), who often Steal, Rape, Murder, etc., even innocent Civilian People, and are usualy promised to be Paid, as Mercenaries, partly in Cash, partly by Looting...

    In Parallel, almost at the Same Time, some Remnants from Former Ordinary Army can be seen, Now, Curiously "Hidden" in the BackGround, often Down Inside some Large Hollow Areas like Big Holes Deep In Lower Ground, mostly operating a Series of Tanks, Canons, Rocket-Launchers, etc., usualy Bombing the Adjacent Territories, several Hundreds of Meters or Kms Away, in a "Blind" and/or Remote way, systematicaly Avoiding Any Direct Fight with the Adversary, Face to Face, (unless they are OutNumbered, Wounded/Killed, or Disarmed, Trying to Flee, Humbered by Refugees, etc). Sometimes they get Inside Armored Conways, and Patrol around a Previously Bombed Territory, Always Hidden Behind a Lot of Ugly Metal, etc.

    >>> In other words, to put it in a Nutshell, it's all as if the Former Turkish Army has practicaly Ceased to Exist as such, or CanNot be, No More, Trusted to really Fight Loyaly, and has been Replaced by Proxies, and/or Avoiding to be Directly Engaged against any realy Motivated and Able to Fight Adversary... Indeed, Since that 2016 UnPrecedented Clash between Brutal and Vicious Armed Gangs against the remnants of a formerly Regular Army, for the 1st Time in the History of Turkey Crashed and Defeated by a "Civilian" Government, backed by Armed Thugs, it's as if the Formerly Known Turkish Army, Humiliated, Raped, Discredited, Jailed or Fired, Exiled or Displaced, if not Hidden or Escaped Abroad, Deprived of Many among its Best Officers and Leaders, who were Arrested, Killed or Exiled, is No More really Operational Nowadays, and/or canNot be really Trusted by Ankara's Regime !

=> Then, How could they be trusted by anyone else ?

+ Moreover, the Above-mentioned View, that the Turkish Army which had Existed in the Past, (i.e. Before 2016), Might have also served as a kind of "Guarantee" Against the Russians, (Comp. Supra), is No more Convincing...

>>> Indeed, How Could such a Naive View (attributed to the Former "Cold War" era), be, Perhaps, Founded, when Everybody knows that, in Fact, that Turkish Army ...Owed its own Existence to the ...Russians, (and, in particular, the Lenin-Stalin-Trotski "Communist" Regime of the Past !), Since it's, Notoriously, a Decision by Moscow to suddenly Stop Fighting Against the Turks, make a Truce, and Even Sell them Arms, Back on 1921, when the Greek Army had Advanced up to ..40 km. Only from Ankara, and all the Western European Countries had just Signed the "Treaty of Serves" (1920-1921), which Marked the Final Collapse of the former Ottoman-Turk Empire of the Medieval Times, and even Endorsed the Presence of Greek, Italian, French, and British Troops throughout almost All the Anatolia Plateau, (with the Only Exception of a Small Piece of Land around Ankara alone), added to a Return of Armenians throughout a Big Part of their Historic Territories, as well as a provision for the Creation of a ...Kurdish State ? In Fact, this was, Obviously, the End of any Turkish Power Near Europe, and it's Only Russians' "Real-Politik" Move, Consisting into Throwing the Turkish "Trouble-Makers" against the Western Europeans, (whose Armies and/or Allied Troups had, practicaly, Surrounded, the New "Communist" Russian State from All Directions, Cooperating with "White Russian" Anti-Bolshevic Forces which were Attacking Moscow then), that realy "Saved" Attaturk's Doomed Armed Bands from an Otherwise Inevitable Defeat, at the Last Minute...

=> So that, in Fact, from that Sudden Blockade of the Greek Army's advance towards Ankara (1921) ; the Eradication of Any European Forces' Presence at Anatolia Plateau, by the Blockade  of the "Treaty of Sevres" (1920-1921), which had largely supported that ; the Massacre and Expulsion of Armenians and Greeks, etc., after Burning the Historic City of Smyrne (re-named Izmir) on 1922 ; the Withdrawal from NATO's Military Wing, between 1974 - 1980, by Greece (Following Turkey's Military Invasion and Occupation at the Nothern Part of Cyprus); the 2 or 3 Days-Long Blockade of the important Anniversary and Reform Summit of NATO's Heads of State/Government  in Strasbourg on 2009, by Turkish Blackmail  Demands against its Secretary General and Denmark ; the Row between USA and Turkey about Buying the Russian "S400" Air Defense Missiles System (2017-2020) ; NATO's "Brain Death" Risk by Turkey's Blockade of European Control against illegal Arms Smuggling to Libya, strongly Denounced by French President Macron (2019), etc. : The Longest Series of Trouble-Making by Turkey against Western Europe's Security, Proved that Lenin, Stalin, and Trotski had Guessed Right, by Saving Turkey from Total Collapse at the Last Minute, Back on 1921, and Throwing it among the Feet of European Countries to Weaken them...

-------------------------------

    + Nevertheless, on anOther, absolutely Opposite Strategic Point, Loiseau appeared to be ...More Right than she thought, when she repeatedly Urged for European Countries to "Act Together", at Present and in the foreseable Future, for a Strong and Efficient European Security and Defense, (Including even the Post-BREXIT UK, which should be convinced of the Common Interest to Sign an Agreement with the EU on Cooperation in that Field) :

    - "Eurofora" had Questioned EU Parliament's Defense Committee's President, (on the Occasion also of the 1st Plenary of the Conference for the Future of Europe, Today in Strasboug), whether she Felt the Need to Stimulate EU Citizens' Conscience in that Direction, inter alia, Also by Highlighting several Landmark, but often Ignored or UnderEstimated, Historic concrete Examples of cases, through the Centuries, where People from Many European Countries Joined Common Struggles in order to Succesfully Fight and Win certain Key, Strategic Battles, for the General Interest of All Europe.

    - Loiseau's Initial reaction appeared quite Careful and Reserved, mainly Because she was Afraid that "Narratives of the Past", might be more Affected by "Nationalism" in Various Countries, than Inspired by a Common European Interest, which Should Better Guide us Nowadays and in the Future, as she Explained.

      >>> But, in Fact, Europe's real History is, often, much More Rich and full of Interesting and Inspiring Events, be it Tragic or Triomphal, (sometimes Under-Estimated or Ignored), than even its warmer supporters might guess...

      - Thus, Among Various others, f.ex., Already since Ancient Greece, when narrow "Nationalism" was notoriously linked, then, to Separate "Cities-States", the Need to Face the Big Threat of a massive Military Invasion by a Big Persian Empire, which searched to Open the Way for its Further Expansion throughout All the European Continent, made the Different "City-States" in Greece, which had been widely Separated, and/or even, often, in more or less Tension or Conflict between them, to Suddenly Decide to Unite, for the 1st Time in History, their Forces, almost All Together, to the point that they Marked even an UnExpectedly Large and Decisive Victory against the Invadors, known as the Battle of "Platea" (Means "Wide") on 323 BC, which Convinced, at last, the Persians to Definitively Stop Aggressions and Return Back Home ! A Landmark Sculpture Symbolizing, precisely, that New Spirit of large Unity and Common Action, was Crafted and placed on that Historic spot, Later being transfered to Byzantium/Constantinople, which became the Capital of the OverMillenary Byzantine Empire, 300-1.453.

    - On a Tragic but Grandiose, and Emotionaly Human tone, the Full Version of the Last Speech of Byzantine Emperor Constantin Palaiologos just before the Invasion, Occupation and Destruction of the Longest Christian Empire in the World (More than a Thousand Years) by the Army of Ottoman Turks, back on 1.453, Surprizes particularly by his Overall, PanEuropean Large View : After notoriously but vainly having tried to Bridge the Separation between Catholic and Orthodox Christians, in Many concrete ways, he Warns also against Similar Threats throughout All Europe, extending, through the Mediterranean but not only, even towards nowadays France and Spain, etc., and strongly Urging for a Brave and United Struggle againt the Aggressors. From Both Cultural, Technological, Geographic, Historic, Religious, Human, and Strategic points of view, Feels like a fully-fledged, Real European ! Just Before he Dies, Sacrificing himself, Together with his Last Compagnions, Facing Thousands of Aggressors and Even Treacherous "Kerkoporta" Cowards, he Looks, in fact, More than ever, towards Europe's Legacy and Future...

    - An Italian former Minister for EU Affairs has reportedly said that such an Event "Marked the Beginning of European History" : The Landmark and Grandiose Naval Battle of Lepanto (alias Naupactos), on 1.571, is, indeed, the First and Brillant Victory of a United European Force, (which Inspired the feast of "Our Lady of Victory", on October 7), composed by People from Many Countries, (Italy, Malta, Spain, France, Vatican, Austria, etc), involving about 140.000 Fighters, and More than 500 Ships, 2.600 Canons, as well as the Liberation of some 12.000 EnSlaved People, (etc). It put an End to the Ottoman-Turkish Domination in the Mediterranean Sea, and Revenged the Brural Massacre of Venitians and many Thousands of Greek Christians when the Turks Invaded Cyprus.

    + Even More Impressive, a Strong Unity of Catholic and Orthodox Christians, throughout the Great Europe, from Italy (Venice + Vatican), to Austria/Germany (Habsburg + Holy Roman Empire), Poland and Lithuania, as well as Russia, forms a "Holy Ligue", Attracting also Various revolted European People, as a kind of New "Crusade", this time inside Europe ! The Famous "Battle of Vienna" (1.683) Marks the End of the Ottoman-Turkish Invasion threats on the European Land. Follow several "Unprecedented Military Successes", according to Historians, Including the Liberation of Budapest (1686) and All Hungary (1699), as well as Dalmatia (part of Croatia), etc. Such Movements were Extended, mutatis-mutandis, also to Crimea (by Russia), Belgrade (by Habsburgs), and Morea/Peloponisos, in Greece (by Venice). But these Parts were, Afterwards,  Briefly ReCaptured by the Ottoman-Turks, (Before Later Revolutions, which Liberated them Definitively).

    - Napoleon Bonaparte reaches at the Highest level of his Achievements and Popularity until about 1.812, after a Series of Victories culminating at Tilsit, and the Homonumous Peace Treaty agreed with Russia's Czar Alexander, including a Joint Response vis a vis the UK, at one side, and prospects to Liberate the European Peoples Invaded and still Occupied by the Ottoman-Turkish Empire, at anOther side. In the Middle, from Spain to Italy, Switzerland, Benelux, and particularly with the Franco-German "Federation of the Rhine", up to Poland, Dalmatia with Corfou island (etc), he manages to Unite a Great part of Europe, while, Also, Stimulating Joint Ideological Aspirations of many People, particularly Symbolized by German Music Composer Beethoven's "Heroic" Symphony, (alias "3rd"), initialy in honour of that French ex-Revolutionary, (who Astonishingly Focuses on Repeating the use of the Key Word "Europe", even in his "Memo" dictated at his ultimate Prison, at Saint-Helen island, held by the British, a long time afterwards).

    - Navarino (Pylos) Naval Battle (1.827) was a landmark Victory of Joint Forces by the UK, France, and Russia, against the Ottoman-Turkish Occupation of Greece, which Helped considerably the Emerging National Liberation Revolution by the Greek People, that had Just Started in Peloponisos peninsula Since 1.821. The Bulk of the Fight was, reportedly, beared by the Russians. But an Important role was played by the atypical Brittish Codrington, a Philellen, whose Son had just been Killed at the Aegean Sea. (He, Also, Bombarded an Egyptian Pasha at Alexandria in order to convince him to Stop a Maveric Plan with Turkey for "Genocide" of the Greek Population by Massively Kidnaping and Expulsing them to be Sold in Africa as Slaves, and Replaced by Arab Muslims, as German Diplomats had Denounced). While French  Henri de Rigny remains Afterwards in Greece to Help France's Mission at Morea (Peloponisos) against the above-mentioned Genocide planed by the Ottoman Turks and that Egyptian Pasha, but Also for a Scientific Exploration, mainly of Archeology, with Important Findings, particularly of the period of the Ancient Civilisation, (which, reportedly, had reached, thanks to its Ships, up to the North-Western Europe of Scotland !).

    + Another Landmark European period, with particular importance Also for Defense Issues, certainly was that of 1920-1921, around the Allies, including Specialy the Popular, then, UK Prime Minister LLoyd George (an atypical Liberal), Together with the Young Churchill, (then Minister of Defense, and later of Foreign Affairs), as well as the solid French President Alexandre Millerand, an atypical politician from the left, succesfully turned to the right, (etc), added to the Peace Treaty of Sevres (near Paris), the Liberation of Arab Countries from the Ottoman-Turc Empire's jug, almost All the European Balkan Countries having been Liberated too, at that moment, etc. This was, probably, the Last Period, until now, during which, Europe appeared Strong and Influential also at a great part of its Neighbourhood. [Even if, Suddenly, it was, suprizingly, all Over, ...after a "simple" Telegram from Canada (sic !) : An Important Story, that "Eurofora" will describe asap., when we find enough spare Time]...

Idea Proposed :

Dialogue EU Citizens - Politicians Before Decisions affecting their Life and/or Society


How to Overcome the apparent Contradiction between 92% of EU Citizens' Wish to be Taken into Account Before Final EU Decisions, and EU's Elected Representatives' will for a more Efficient Decision-Making ?

>>> By Establishing a (Judge-controled) Dialogue between EU Citizens and Politicians Before Decisions affecting their Lives and/or Society at large.

=> In this way, EU Citizens would have a Right to :

- Be Informed Before such EU Decisions might be taken.

- Be Heard (on their Objections, Proposals, etc), also Beforehand.

- Receive a Reply from the Competent EU Politicians  Beforehand, which must be :

    * Founded on a "Sufficient" Motivation, (Compared to the EU Citizens' Arguments).

    * with "True" Facts, and

    * with "Legal" Arguments,

    * Pursuing an Aim of General Interest.

+ The chosen Measure must Not be Out of Proportion vis a vis its Legal Aim.

++ If, despite all these guarantees, that Measure proves, Afterwards, to be totaly InEfficient, vis a vis its Legal Aim, then, the Politicians who Decided that, can be Easily Exposed to the Public Opinion as UnTrustworthy or InCompetent, and, in Consequence, Loose the Next Elections.

------------------------------

    The Legal Feasibility of such a System Can be Based on a Series of Relevant Legal elements, Most of which are Already Existing in almost all EU Member States, (as well as some elements of EU Lisbon Treaty).

    This results mainly from an Original Legal Research of more than 1.000 Pages, (Chosen by the Faculty of Law of Strasbourg's University for a Prize awarded to PhD Thesis, on a written proposal by Professor Paul Amselek, of Paris II University), that we ha prepared and Succesfuly presented, receiving a "Très Bien" Mention.

    Our Proposal was, Afterwards, presented to a 2-Days Long Collective Conference of many Citizens, organized by Strasbourg's EuroMetropole, Discussed and Endorsed by them, afterwards deposed Officialy in a Report to the French Government in Paris, in the Framework of  "the Great Debate" organized by President Emmanuel Macron at the Spring of 2019.

    Meanwhile, we have Presented and Discussed, at least the Substance of this Project, during a Long Period of almost 20 Years, with Many Top EU and/or CoE Politicians, Officers, Rapporteurs, etc., Including All EU Parliament's Presidents, (F.ex., concerning the Current President, David Sassoli, See : .... + ...,  etc, as well as a relevant Paper on such Succesful EU/CoE Top Contacts).

    We Firmly Believe that, if it's Properly Used and Developed, throughout Europe, such a System Could Help Bring the European People closer to their Political Representatives, considerably Strengthen Modern Democracy, and Stimulate a Wide Momentum for the Emergence of a Strong Europe in the World, at the foreseable Future.

     *Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/-
In fact, the 1st Plenary of EU's landmark Conference on Europe's Future, due to Start Tomorrow in Strasbourg, in scheduled to be withOut the Citizens who will take a Key Active Part in that Novel Process, EU Parliament's Head Spokesman, and Director of Communications, Jaume Duch-Guillot, told "Eurofora", while a Top Representative of engaged NGO "Union of European Federalists" immediately Reacted (See Infra).

- "What's really New in that Conference is (EU) Citizens' Participation. While negociations between Politicians is a Familiar event". So, it's not a surprise that, f.ex., "even after an interesting Press Conference of Verhofstadt (EU Parliament's Head Negociator) in Brussels last Wednesday, we didN't see enough Media Publications...", he regretted."So, they (MEPs) didN't yet ask to prepare Any Press Conference for this Plenary" in Strasbourg on Saturday. 

euparlioament_com_director_jaume_duch_photo_send_to_agg_by_himself_duch__eurofora_dsc38631_400 

=> Because, "in fact, all are Waiting for those (EU) Citizens with which the Conference's proposals and negociations will take place : That's going to be the Real News, and I Expect, from that moment, a Growing Media Interest", the Experienced EU Parliament's Top Official on Communication and Head Press Spokesman told "Eurofora".

    - Indeed, for the Time being, it's just "the Portuguese (rotating) EU Presidency who will Bring some Citizens" in Strasbourg's 1st Plenary, But, for the rest, it's an Independent Experts' Company which is currently on the process of Searching, according to Stict and Complex Criteria, to Find those 108 Citizens from the EU's Group who would be Representative to the Europêan Population's various Characteristics.

    => So that Their Names will be Known only "on July", and "the 1st Plenary" where they could participate might be somewhere "Between the End of September and October" 2021, Because "at First, they Need to Work in the Panels" of that Conference, which are due "to Prepare the Proposals" and relevant work "Before the (Next) Plenary".

    + In Consequence, (EU) Citizens' Participation in the Conference's Plenaries are expected to go on from October (2021) up to around March or April (2022), When the real Political Negociations with EU Parliament, etc. could Start", and, "then, we (MEPs) are going to Enter in the Substance" for the Final Conclusions' Official Report, he approximately highlighted.

-----------------------------------------------

    >>> - But, "We Regret that the (EU) Citizens are Not Yet present in that 1st Plenary", and "that's Not a Good Signal for the European People's Participation, and that's Problematic". + Moreover, as things stand now, "there is Not Enough Time for Citizens, who participate in a Small Number, to really play a role during Only those 3 or 4 Months, if the Conference bas to End on May (2022)", Denounced to "Eurofora" the President of engaged NGO "Union of European Federalists" for France, Lawyer Ophelie Omnes, (who is Nowadays in Strasbourg for various Related Collective EU Events).

    => - "So that the Voice of the European People, either through NGOs and/or Directly as EU Citizens, Risks to Not be really Able to be Heard" sufficiently, she Warned.

---------------------------------------

eurofora_logo_1 

    + "Eurofora"'s Project has Notoriously, Always, bee to Find some Creative but Serious ways to Use the New Tele-Communication Technologies in order to Allow, for the 1st Time in Contemporary History, in principle, for All 500 Millions of EU Citizens to take an active part, in one way or another, according to their Free Involvement, in the Collective Decision-Making Process, mainly by Expressing their Views and Wishes, in order to be Taken into Account,  Before Final EU Decisions affecting their Lives and Soiety at large, Will be Chosen by the competent Elected EUI Politicians.

    But, with Only 108 Citizens from the EU part (i.e. Not Chosen by Member States), among which 1/3 has to be Youngsters, while All of them are due to be "Chosen at Random" by a Company of Experts (sic ! ), such Too Narrow Limitations canNot really Stimulate European People's participatory Action, as it Should do, in order to Boost EU Democray Able to Back the Necessary Changes for Europe to Become a Sovereign and Autonomous World Actor !

    => In Consequence, to put it in a Nutshell, it remains to Seek a way so that, by "Waiting for EU Citizens" to Participate in this Conference on Europe's Future, (Comp. Supra), EU would Avoid an obvious Risl to be, in fact, ..."Waiting for Godot", (according to the World-Famous Tragi-Comedy of Irish Writer Samuel Becket...

PanEuropa German Head Posselt to EF+: Conference on EU's Future: No Mock Debate. EUState Core Issues

*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- [NDLR: In a text Send to "Eurofora"+ by German Paneuropean Union's Head, Experienced former Long-Time MEP, Bernd Posselt, he mainly Urges EU's Conference on Europe's Future, whose 1st Plenary kick-Starts Tomorrow in Strasbourg, to Avoid "Mock Debates" in order to Focus on the Core Issues concerning the State of Europe. In this regard the Biden - Putin meeting at nearby Geneva, also on European Issues, in the Absence of any EU Representative, speaks by itself...  [See Infra].

We willingly Publish almost All his Original Text, (with Only 1 Word Edited), since "Eurofora" Agrees with Most of it. However, we Also Sincerely Believe that a Real and Full eventual Mobilisation of the Bulk of European People, (for the 1st Time in History, Possible, thanks to Modern TeleCommunications), if Rightfuly Developed, Could Stimulate Europe's Future as required by the World Nowadays. +In Addition, "Eurofora" Believes that National Democratic States are a proper European Characteristic, (f.ex. pratically Non-Existent in Africa, whose Bprders are Different, Neither in Asia, where Turkish, Indian, or Chinese "Empires" Dominate), and must he Preserved, as part of the European Democracy, bringing Closer to the People. Nevertheless, naturally, this does  Not Exclude at all an Eventual Federation of Europe ! On the sole condition that Small/Medium Member States might Defend their Vital National Security and/or Social Values' matters, at least in a (Court-controled) Proportional way, while leaving all Other Aspects to a possible Federal European State].

"Posselt: Becoming a (Federal) State, instead of Mock-Debate

Criticism of the EU Conference on the Future of Europe / Honouring Jean-Claude Juncker

47th Paneuropean Days of the Paneuropean Union Germany

18. 06. 2021

Trier. At the beginning of the 47th Paneuropean Days of the Paneuropean Union Germany (today) in Trier, its president, the CSU European politician Bernd Posselt, criticized the EU Conference on the Future of Europe, which was constituted at the same time in Strasbourg: "It must be about the State of the EU in the 21st century and not about ... Mock debates Past the Core of European problems.

He referred to the meeting between Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin in Geneva: "It was about the fate of Europe, but the Europeans did not sit at the table."The blueprint for the further development of the EU is actually obvious:" We need a Strengthening of the European Parliament, an EU Commission Elected by it, which sees itself as a real European Government, the abolition of the Unanimity principle in Foreign policy, and a European Defence union.“

The Paneuropean Days are the Annual main event of the German branch of the Oldest European unification movement founded in 1922.

At tomorrow's rally, the patron of the Congress, former European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, visited by guests from different European countries, will be awarded the special Paneuropean Merit Medal. According to Posselt, the non-partisan Paneuropean Union will focus on three topics at the festive opening tonight and at the main rally on Saturday morning: the reconstruction of cross - border living and cultural spaces after the damage caused by the corona-related border closures, the establishment of a democratic and sovereign European federation and the role of Europe as a defender and beacon of human rights in the world.


From Trier, the oldest city in Germany, the participants will travel by bus to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, where Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich, as President of the EU Bishops 'Conference, will celebrate a mass together with the President of the Bishops' Conference of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Franjo Komarica, in the famous pilgrimage town of Echternach. On Sunday, the Paneuropean Days, which are under the motto "Shaping Europe, not just managing it", end with a Protestant service, which Father Werner Sonn holds, as well as the annual Federal Delegate Assembly of the Paneuropean Union Germany.

sarko_looks_up_applauded_after_making_the_t_point

    EU Rapporteur on Enlargment Strategy, maistream German MEP Elmar Brok, speaking to "EuroFora", welcomed the proposal made earlier this week by French President Nicolas Sarkozy for the EU to"start Now Talks with Turkey to create a common Economic and Security area", instead of full Accession, at a period when Ankara looks more and more unfit and/or unwilling to respect EU conditions.

    - "For Europe to have strong Political will, it must stop dilutiing itself in an endless Enlargement. It must have borders...Diversities enrich, on the condition that they don't undermine European Cohesion, and don't weaken EU Unity", Sarkozy stressed.
    
    - "Countries like Turkey share a part of common destiny with Europe, with which they have a vocation to build a Privileged Relation, to be closely associated, but not to become Member of the EU"  : "Noone respects his friends by telling them lies. Noone respects his friends by making them promises that will be never kept", he added.

    That's why "we'd better start, from now, negotiating with Turkey to create a common Economic and Security area", Sarkozy proposed.

Significantly, the French President was repeatedly and largely applauded by EU citizens, 3 times, when he made the Turkey point, (strategically placed between Europe's "Political Will" and its cultural heritage, historically open to mutually enriching dialogue with all the World, but never diluted).

    - "We could propose such a great ambition also to Russia, which must not be percieved as an Adversary of Europe, but as a Partner. Thus, we'd create a wide area, of more than 800 Million inhabitants, sharing the same Security, the same Prosperity", he concluded.

brok__merkel_400

    Sarkozy's move was anounced at the eve of a Franco-German Top meeting with Chancellor Angie Merkel in Berlin on Sunday, to jointly launch the EU Elections campain, after an EU Summit at nearby Prague, to launch a new kind of relations, called "Eastern Partnership", with neighboring countries such as Urkaine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaidjan, etc, (to which Russia, reportedly, is not - and does not want to be - included).

    As for Ukraine, which has already expressed her wish to join the EU in future, "Kiev will have a special place, and a very important role to play", replied earlier this week in Strasbourg, to an "EuroFora" question EU Chairman in office , Czech vice-Prime Minister Alexander Vodra.

    - "This direction is more Realistic for Turkey than Accession negotiations", reacted immediately EU Parliament's Rapporteur for Enlargment Strategy, mainstream German MEP Elmar Brok, commenting Sarkozy's idea for "EuroFora"

     Particularly "as far as it concerns the respect of EU Rules by both sides", he added, hinting at Turkey's now obvious inability and/or unwillingness to abide with EU Acquis, EU Commitments (fex. on Cyprus, etc), and European Democracy/Human Rights rules. (Comp. infra).

    Brok added that, in his view, a similar proposal might be made also to Ukraine and other neighbouring Countries, regardless if they have, or not, a "European vocation". This would not necessarily mean that there couldn't be any accession prospects at all." for all the countries that might be included in this area, according to Brok.  But it's preferable, particularly for Turkey, "because it's a more Realistic approach than full Membership".

    On this point, Sarkozy's proposal, (which he'll share with German Chancellor Merkel), seems more crystal-clear.

daul_in_press_file_400

    - "Turkey does not fullfil EU Criteria, and will never fullfil EU Criteria" on Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law. "Some have been lying to Ankara, but we must tell the Truth, and have honest and close relations with her", said meanwhile to "EuroFora" on the same issue also the President of EU Parliament's largest Group of MEPs (ChristianDemocrats/EPP), Joseph Daul.

"Hot" Debate at EU Parliament reveals CHANGE of mood towards "Suspension" of EU - Tukey talks.
------------------------------
    Earlier this week, many MEPs, and even some of those who were previously in favor of Turkey's controversial EU bid, strongly criticized the persistance and even aggravation of serious Human Rights violations in the country, that ECHR continues to "unanimously" condemn ":

      - "After winning a big victory in the latest Local Elections, the pro-Kurdish party DTP almost doubled its Elected Mayors from 52 to 98", but afterwards "more than 400 politicians were thrown to Prison and prosecuted" by the Turkish Authorities, denounced on behalf of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group, Belgian MEP Frieda Brepoels.

     At the same time, "more than 1.500 Children are closed in Turkish Prisons", she added. "What will the EU Commission do" against these facts ?

- "Turkey appears to be at greater Distance away from Copenhagen Criteria after 4 Years of accession Negotiations, than when they started !", denounced on behalf of the Liberal Group, German MEP Alexander Lambsdorf.    

"On the central issue of Press Freedom, Critical Journalists face obstacles for their accreditation, others are prosecuted, condemned, fined and/or jailed, Media blocked or closed", he denounced.   

 - "EU Made 2 grave Mistakes with Turkey : To start accession negotiations, and to continue them", despite everything, criticized Dutch MEP Bastian Belder, on behalf of the Ind/Dem group.
