Passports to Hell ? Fake "Vaccines"= No Guarantee v. Infections Spread (Opposed to Classic Vaccines)

Written by ACM
Monday, 24 May 2021


*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/-
In Addition to CoE's Secretary General, Marija Buric's recent Warning against possible Human Rights Violations, (which might result to ECHR Condemnations, later-on, See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coewarnsoneuvaccinationpassports.html, etc), and Chinese President Xi's Call against "Vaccine Divide", even at the Global Health Summit nowadays (See Infra), original Facts known until now, (See, already : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/pfijfyjhjh.html, http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/fdaandcontroversialvirusvaccines.html, etc) clearly show a Big Danger of Deadly Virus' Infections' Spread when and where Health Protection Measures risk to be considerably prematurely Lowered or Droped, including, particularly, the Controversial Issue of so-called "Passports" or "Certificates", related to UnPopular Fake "Vaccines" in-name-only, (Curiously Limited Only to 1 Kind of "ANR" Technology affecting the Human Genome), simply Because they have Not Any proven efficiency against Infections' Spread to Other People, Contrary to all "Classic" Vaccines (Based on a Diminished Virus, treated Chemicaly), Since their inception by Pasteur, a Century Earlier, (See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/1821or2021euvaccinetyurkey2centuriesafter.html, etc)...

Indeed, it's an undeniable and Surprising Fact that those who Claimed to have fabricated the First "Vaccines" against the COVIT-19 Virus' Epidemc, had Not even Included the Protection of Other People from any Risk of being Infected by eventualy still Contagious Recipients of their products, among the preliminary Tests, and didN't even Speak about it, in their Initial Documentation, when they asked to be Authorized in the USA, the EU, etc..., (particularly "BNT/Pfizer", while "Moderna" sent Only a Vague Late "Additional" Paper, with a Few and Uncertain words, Afterwards).

And "Eurofora" Discovered personaly the Worrying Fact that Even Top and Experienced EU Officials in Brussels, were Not really Aware of the Existence of such a Dangerous Loophole, (which could present a kind of "Novel Problem", withOut any Precedent in Classic Vaccines' History), when the Time came to Check and Authorize, or not, under conditions, the Commercialisation of that kind of New so-called "Vaccines" in Europe, (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/pfijfyjhjh.html, etc).

This practicaly Opened a New and UnExplored-yet Chapter about, Eventualy Contagious, "Asymptomatic" Carriers of Virus, who might, perhaps, Infect, more or less, any Other People, even After having been, themselves, "Vaccinated" by such Controversial Novel "ANR" Technology Tools targeting Human Genome.

In Consequence, the Risk Obviously became Serious for many Innocent People to be Lurred by the False Appearances of some so-called "Vaccinated" Individuals, Automaticaly Exploiting the Traditional Belief that Any "Vaccinated" person would No More Infect Others, while, in fact, they Might Still remain Contagious !

So, it seems theoreticaly possible, that a kind of "Silent Killer Jombies", might Start to Circulate among UnInformed, Innocent People, pushed to Lower or Drop their Health Protection Measures vis a vis them, inevitably Provoking an "Explosion" of (initialy undetected) Virus' Infections' Spread throughout the whole Society, (as early Prevention measures would be circumvened)...

Chinese were the First to Note Various such kind of Incidents, particularly among Groups of Thousands of People entering in China's Xiyiang Region from Neighbouring Pakistan, recently, among whom, several Hundreds were subsequently found to be "Asymptomatic" Carriers of the Virus, while Mixing among the local "Ungur" Turkic Minority... (By a Surprizing Coincidence, this is also the Name of ..."Ungur Sahin", the CEO of the Turkish SME "BNT", which was Funded by controversial Bill Gates since 2019 in order to fabricate those ANR Pseudo-"Vaccines" on 2020-2021 Virus Epidemic, and who comes from Iskinderum, which was Invaded and Occupied by the Turkish Army during the NAZI-Fascism era, Usurpating the Family Homes of Armenians, Greeks, and Arab Christians, in a SeaPort initialy created by Ancient Greek Civilisation's "Alexander the Great" : originaly nick-named "Alexandreta", But Nowadays Neighbour of "Idlib" Region in Syria, notoriously Full of Extremist Islamist Armed Gangs and Terrorists, including even ISIS' long-time Chief "El Bagdadi")... China Risked, initially, to be Inundated by Fast-Spreading "Asymptomatic" Virus' carriers throughout the Country, But, Finaly, it managed to Limit the Bulk of them among the "Imported" Cases "from Abroad", so that this potentialy Worrying Phenomenon, Can be, now (May 2021), Controled.

+ Meanwhile, in Brussels, after "Eurofora"'s Initial Question, raised in a Video-Press Conference of a key EU Heads of State/Government Summit, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/pfijfyjhjh.html, etc), it's EU Commission's President Ursula von der Leyen, who Noted, herself, at least Twice, the existence of the above-mentioned Problem, when so-called (initialy) "Vaccination Passports" were Discussed by the Summits, (see, f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/eusummitonvaccinesquestions.html+ ..., etc).

So that French University Professor Perrone's brutal ...Firing, from his main Top Job of Head of Infections' Department in Paris' Hospitals, back on 12/2020, apparently for having Published a landmark Criticism of such Controversial "ANR" New Technology Tools on Human Genome, strongly Denying the Scientific term of "Vaccine" in their case, precisely for the above-mentioned, Dangerous Particularities, (Unknown and Incompatible with Pasteur's Historic Original ideas), appeared, Recently (2021), as even more Arbitrary...

However, von Leyen later appeared to ...put some Water in her Wine at this Thorny affair, particularly after she Vaguely Evoked, at a subsequrnt Press Conference in Brussels, a possibility for "Israel" to Eventualy find some kind of evidence, or Indications for Maybe Sparing several Other People from the Risk of Virus' Infections spread by "Asymptomatic" Vaccinated individuals.

But, after careful analysis, it results that all relevant, older or newer, references to such Alleged Israel Officials'-BNT/Pfizer's Claims undeniably Lack Proof : In fact, either they are Not yet fully Published, or are Only mere "Pre-Prints", withOut any Peer Review yet, (so that they canNot be used in Medical Decisions), and, even then, they Acknowledge themselves that, at least as far as it concerns "Asymptomatic" Individuals, (as, f.ex., most mRNA-"Vaccinated"), their Data Numbers are still "Scarce", and, in general, "Need further Validation", (Not provided yet)... Moreover, Israel has Not Yet started to Lift its Strict Public Health Protection Measures, until Today, so that it's >Not Possible to Guess what might happen, if and when it might do so in the foreseable Future.... Finaly, a Most Recent Article (at "Live Science"/"Washington Post"), this Month, Criticizes All relevant Publications as InSufficient "clues", and Announces a New Trial, in the USA, Expected to Study that Issue in the Future, ... 5 Months Later !

A similar (and even Worse) Lack of Any Credible Scientific Proof affects, currently, also, All Other Cases of mRNA Pseudo-"Vaccines" subjects and Risks to Infect Other People by Continuing to Transmit the Virus, nowadays... (Certain Establishment's Medias fall even so Low, that they merely refer to an Article in "Nature" concerning "Asymptomatics" in China's Wuhan ...at the 1st Semester of 2020, i.e. when "Vaccines" did Not Exist Yet !).

Some Desperate, Last-Minute Attempts, before May 2021 EU Decisions, to Try to Fill that Gap, look as a Blatant Failure : F.ex. a "Conversation/MedicalXPress" Article, citing 2 Publications, one Limited Only on "Household" Contacts in the UK, during Strict "Lockdown", and Lacking Data on the Most Fragile Ages (from 60 y.o.), Claims an Eventual Possibility for a Small Reduction of Infections by "Vaccinated" Individuals, while an Older Paper from February, Restricted Only to ..."Noses"' Virus loads, Speculates about a "Likely" Hypothesis of, Perhaps, some Possibility to Reduce the Transmission of Virus by "Vaccinated" Jobies... Both Unable to go further than an Initial Speculation by "Moderna", in an "Additional", UnProven short Claim, Back on 2020, that such Jobies' Contagiousness might, Perhaps, be about 35% Less than with Ordinary Virus Spreaders : I.e. Nothing Certain, except from a More than +60% Risk to Infect Other People, clearly Admitted, Even by the most Fanatic Lobbyists of those Pseudo-"Vaccines" !

=> In such Conditions, Obviously, Recent EU sources' Claims to Lift Health Protection Measures, and/or Discriminate among EU Citizens' Rights and Liberties, according to whether there has been, or not, any use of that kind of Pseudo-"Vaccines", (f.ex. via Controversial "Passports" or "Certificates", etc. : Comp. Supra), appear quite Dangerous...

+ And things look rather Nasty f.ex. when EU Commissioner on Health, Stella Kyriakides, Nowadays pleads Even for Opening Free Access into the EU for All Foreigners who have been "Vaccinated" by such Controversial mRNA Tools, (indicated by such "Passports" or "Certificates"), "Even if they come from a Country classified "Red"" for grave Virus Infection Risks !

>>> The overall Danger becomes Obvious with the Astonishing Fact of WHO's Global Data, which clearly Reveal a Recent, otherwise UnExpected, Huge Aggravation of both Infections and Deaths by the Virus, Worldwide, Since the appearance of those Controversial Pseudo-"Vaccines", at a point Never seen Before in History... (Cf. relevant WHO Graphics, herewith).


Meanwhile, it's also some Scientists who have reportedly Started to Warn about a kind of "4rth Wave" in the Epidemic, (which, in fact, could be a further Aggravation of the current, "3rd Wave", curiously Synchronous to those Controversial "mRNA/DNA" Novel Tools, since December 2020).

Even more Didactic : The Big Contrast between Seychelles, notoriously over-Vaccinated (including with "Astrozeneka"'s mRNA/DNA), which suddenly faced an UnPrecedented "Explosion" of Infections and Deaths,


compared to Australia, which, after suffering from 2 Virus' Waves, at last Nowadays succeeded to practicaly Stop Infections and Deaths, by droping its own and foreign Pseudo-"Vaccines", to Focus on Natural Health Protection and Hygienics, (as Neighbouring China)... [See relevant WHO Grafics].


Similar Differencies also in Short Periods of Time, between EU Members f.ex. Hungary and Greece : Budapest notoriously Departed further Away from Controversial "mRNA/DNA" Pseudo-"Vaccines" of Turkish-USA's BNT/Pfizer, Astrozeneca, etc, but Closer to some Russian or Chinese Competitors, (even if not the best, yet), Succeeding to drastically Reduce Infections and Deaths, as WHO's Latest Data prove.


On the Contrary, Athens' current error to Stick too much, particularly to Controversial Turkish "BNT" Pseudo-"Vaccine" of "mRNA" affecting Human Genome, spectacularly "Coincided" with the Biggest and Longest "Explosion" of Infections' Spread that the Country ever met, (See relevant WHO Grafics)...  


=> In front of such Facts, added, Also, to several EU Citizens' Reluctance or Opposition vis à vis such Controversial Pseudo-"Vaccines", that some EU Bureaucrats seem to try to Impose on the People by Forceps, practicaly Threatening, Otherwise, to let them get Sick and/or even Die, by Depriving them from Any Other, Efficient Medical Drug or Real Vaccine, can Explain, inter alia, f.ex., German Health Minister Spahn's recent Advise, according to whom, EU should Authorize Not Only a Few "mRNA/DNA" and/or Chimpajee (sic !)-related Pseudo-"Vaccines", but Also, at least, anOther "2 Classic Vaccines", (similar to Pasteur's Basic principles)...

At any case, probably Illegal (see CoE's Warnings, reminded Supra) Attempts to Impose some Controversial and Dangerous Pseudo-"Vaccines", which Risk to Boost Virus' Infections' Spread throughout Europe even More, (Comp. Supra), by practicaly Discriminating between Citizens according to their personal Medical treatment Choices, and inevitably Risking to Cover-Up the Dangers of more People being Infected by so-called "Vaccinated", but Still Contagious, Individuals, brandissing Misleading Health "Passports" or "Certificates", (See Facts Supra), Obviously appear as Irresponsible and even Scandalous Blunders !

Indeed, there are, Already, a lot of relevant Facts, Statistics, Grafics, etc., which clearly Warn, that, IF there is No due Attention paid, Nor adequate Measures taken, in this very Dalicate Issue, then, to put it in a Nutshell, those so-called Pseudo-"Health Passports" or "Certificates", Risk to Become, in real Practice, ..."Passports to Hell", provoking even more Tragic Situations !

+ By the way, - Where are Our European Scientists ? Why there is Not Even one (1) European Vaccine against this Deadly Virus ? What happened to Our European Industry in Bio-Tech and Pharma ? Should Europeans be Limited into taking from India a job to Fil Bottles with liquids made by Others ? There are No More Inventors among all Our European Medical Doctors and Researchers ? (Even at this 200th Anniversary of France's World-Famous Vaccine Inventor, Pasteur, who lived and worked also, here, at Strasbourg : 1821 - 2021 ? See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/1821or2021euvaccinetyurkey2centuriesafter.html, etc).














EU Parliament: Focus Against Turkey's controversial + unpopular EU bid, for Other Link

Written by ACM
Wednesday, 19 May 2021


*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- For the 1st Time since long, MEPs were much More Opposed to Turkey's controversial and unpopular EU bid, asking to immediately Drop it, than to EU Funds for Ankara, and Critics were Boosted even Further by recent Kidnappings +Killing of Christians,  added to Bombardments of North-Iraq Civilians, even of Churches, after an Exceptional Peak of Human Rights/Democracy Violations, Military Invasions/Occupations, and Aggressions/Bullying against EU Member States Key for European Energy Resources in South/Eastern Mediterranean, as it results from the Votes on EU Parliament's latest Report on EU-Turkey relations, which had Concluded by soberly calling EU Commission and Council to, at last, officialy Revise an Old and OutDated 2000-2005 stance, particularly if Ankara does Not Soon radicaly Change its overall attitude.

=> Thus, in Fact, such overall Mouvements clearly reveal that Europeans are more and more Motivated by Deeply rooted and Substantial Reasons, in their, Already well-Established (Since 2005-2007/2009+ "No" to EU-Referenda and Elections in Key EU Countries as France, Germany, etc., Followed on 2009-2016 even by Many UK's pro-BREXIT Voters), and Currently Spreading Larger, Firm Opposition against Turkey's controversial and UnPopular EU bid,


 - Indeed, already 126 MEPs Voted "For" (98) or Abstained (28) on a Critical Amendment "Calling" the EU "to Terminate All Funding to Turkey", and, "Furthermore ...to Stop all EIB Loans to Turkey" Now.

         With a Wide Scope, the move Included Funds from the so-called "Pre-<Accession" (sic !), the "Multiannual Financial Framework", and even "the EU-Turkey action Plan on Migration", (an Unprecedented, mukti-Billions € full Grants Each Year to Ankara, Notoriously usurpated by Turkey on 2016, inside a Brussels City Lockdowned by a series of Deadly Islamist Terrorists' Attacks Cowardly Targeting Civilians, and a Record-High "Tsunami" of more than 1,5 Million Mass Asylum Seekers and Irregular Migrants illegaly Tresspassing into the EU through Turkey and its Smugglers, which openly "Blackmailed" the EU, then, at least Until Hungary first, Followed by other Key European Countries started to Protect their Borders, Drasticaly Reducing such InFlows : See Dated Facts f.ex. at : ... + ..., etc).

    - MEPs' Amendment "Underlined that Turkey is Using the Facility for Refugees to challenge and Blackmail the EU and its Member States, in order to obtain some leverage for political, economic or military Concessions, to justify its Aggressive behaviour towards the EU Member States, and to pursue its foreign policy Ambitions". (They forgot, however, the Basic Fact that Turkey, First of all, Profits from a blatant and cynical, massive over-Exploitation of Millions of captive Immigrants, landlocked at its Borders, mostly living in unhealthy, sometims deadly, closed "Camps", encircled by Turkish Soldiers and several times Beaten by Guards and/or the Army, as early videos an/or testimonies showed).

    + Moreover, those MEPs "reiterate(d) that the EU should definitively Stop considering a Modernisation of the EU-Turkey Customs Union, also taking nto account that the continuous Violations of Human rights and fundamental Freedoms by the Erdogan regime would make any alleged strong Conditionality on those aspects Impossibleto be fulfilled". Therefore they "Aske(d)" also "for the Suspension of the EU-Turkey Customs Union agreement, which entered into force on 31 December 1995". Indeed, that 1995, very Controversial event occured amidst ECHR 1st revelations about Grave "InHuman/Degrading Treatments" in Turkey, f.ex. the Vold-blood Murder (by GunShots) of a Handicaped former Political Prisoner in Turkish Jails, who had Denounced Torture provoking the loss pf the uf one opf its Hands, and Refused to Obey to Threats asking him to Withdraw his Lawsuit against Ankara lodged to Strasburg's Paneuropean Court ("Aksoy" vase), but Also the Brutal Expulsion of a Kurdish Family from its Home and Fields by Turkish Soldiers who throwed even Children to the Road and Destroyed the Victims' Livelihood, Obliging them to be Displaced, by Foot, to Far-away Izmir (ex-Smyrne), where they lived at Santyutowns in Horrible Conditions of Heavy Poverty, ("Akdivar" case). In Addition, the Entry into force of that Controversial ">EU-Turkey Customs Union", from January 1996, was Marked by the Brutal Crushing of the Head and Killing of a Young Dissident by the Turkish Police, after a Protest in a Cemetery for Deaths of HungerStrikes among ill-treated Political Prisoners, ("Goctepe" case).

    Otherwise, inevitably, EU would Risk to practicaly be Suspected to ...Profit and become Accomplice, in fact, in Turkey's over-Exploitation of Millions of Immigrants : Something that, obviously, Only some "Fake Europeans" deprived of Conscience might, perhaps, accept, But Never any "Real Europeans" and/or really Human Rights and Freedom-Loving People !


    + But More (125) MEPs mainly Voted "For" (115) or Abstained (tO) on anOther, "Heavier" and Sharper Amendement, "Stressing ...that ....Turkey’s Accession negotiations have ... come to a StandStill;", and "Calling ...to unconditionally and irrevocably Tterminate all Negotiations regarding Turkey’s Accession to the EU", as it ...should ... Not become a Member of the EU".

    Among the Many Reasons cited for that is Mainly the Fact that "Turkey is not a European Country, and does Not Act in accordance with European Values, particularly those aimed at preserving a Peaceful Europe". Indeed, "the Evidence of the Facts" –as "also the continuous countless Provocations towards Member States, the Aggressive behaviour in the Mediterranean, the Instrumentalisation of Refugees (f.ex. on 2015-2016+ through the Aegean Sea, and 2020 via Evros River at Northern Greece, etc) "and the Threat of Unbearable Migratory Pressure – has now Turned the European Hope of starting to build a ‘Positive dynamic’ with Turkey, ..., into an  Utopian exercise" , those MEPs Warned today...


    ++ Surprizingly, an Even much Greater Number of MEPs (214 MEPs, i.e. 64 "No" and 150 "Abstentions") Refused to Back the Final EU Parliament's Resolution on Turkey, which did Not Ask for an Immediate Stop to Turkey's Controversial and UnPopular EU Bid, (See Infra).

    >>> The Cause seems to be a Legitimate Frustration of Many MEP, from Various Political Groups, when anOther Critical Amendment, against Recent "Kiodnappings" and even "Murder" of "Christians" , "underlying the Increase in Discrimination Against Christians in Turkey",  drew "particular Attention f.ex. to the cases of Simoni Diril, who was Kidnapped and Murdered, and Hurmuz Diril, who was (also) kidnapped and is Missing,", while their "cases ...are still Not being Investigated by the Turkish Authorities", despite gatting as much as ...325 Votes of MEPs, nevertheless, was finaly droped because of a comparatively Small Difference of Only 20 MEPs (i.e.345 "Against")...

    The Couple of Simoni and Hurmuz Diril had been Initialy found "Missing" by their Son, from Istanbul, and were the Last Assyrian Christians (the Oldest in the World) still living near Turkey's Borders to Syria/Iraq, etc. + Moreover, almost at the Same Time, Ankara's Military reportedly "Bombarded" Many other Christian Civilian People, hit even a Church, etc., inside Iraq, where they had seeked Refuge from previous Aggressions, to the point that several Organisations, (including the "Great Orient" mainly of France, operating since 1860, etc), Asked the EU to Pursue Turkey for "War Crimes", (in a Press Release communicated to "Eurofora"), after such Brutal Attacks, Hitting many Civilian People at Villages of Neighbouring Countries, as Iraq, that Even Pope Francis had tried to Dissuade with his Recent Trip to that Country, and particularly Near the Areas Now Hit by the Turkish Bombs, (See relevant "Eurofora"'s Publications, then, at: ... + ..., etc).


    +++ Nevertheless, EU Parliament's Majority at least Adopted, in fine, a Critical Resolution on Turkey which Asks for "the Formal Suspension of Accession Negotiationns with Turkey, in order ...to Review ...the Appropriateness of the Current Framework (of Ankara's Controversial and UnPopular EU bid), and its Possibility to Function, Or, if Necessary, to Explore possible New Models for Future Relationsé", (i.e. Out of the EU, f.ex. via some kind of Cooperations, etc), as Voted 480 MEPs from all Mainstream and Pro-European Groups, for the 1st Time in History.

    Such a Move must be done "If the current Negative Trend (concerning Turkey's Behavior)is Not, Urgently and Consistently, Reversed" asap, EU Parliament specified, (provoking Diplomatic Protests from Ankara).


    ++++ => At any case, for EU Parliament, sit's clear that Ankara's "Unacceptable Provocations (Comp. Supra).... Should Not be Rewarded by Continuing EndLess and PointLess Accession Negotiations with Turkey", stressed anOther Amendment, surprizingly Adopted by a Big Majority of 557 MEPs from All Groups, Voting "Yes", (Against Only 101 "No"), Even ikf it had been Tabled, initialy, by the Rightists of the "ID" Group !

    >>> Significantly, this was one of The Most Popular Amendments adopted by EU Parliament Today, (with even More Votes than the overall Resolution itself : Comp. Supra)...



=>  Brief OverView (on relevant Past + Future) :


    >>> Concerning that EU Parliament's call to consider anOther, "Model of Relations" between EU and Turkey, officially and Definitevely Droping the Controversial and UnPopular EU Accession Procedure, (Comp. Supra), among various other Points, it"s Interesting to know How that (a priori Incredible) Proposal was Initiated, around thz End of the 1990ies :

    - During an Exceptionaly Important and semi-Confidential  EU - USA collective Meeting then, in the sidelines of EU Parliament's Plenary in Strasbourg, that "Eurofora"s co-Founder was Covering, suddenly, a "Paper" from the Turkish Government was Distributed.

    EU - Turkey relations were, then, Hampered by a quasi-Total Blockade of almost All EU Funding programs for Ankara, Because of Serious and massive Violations of Human Rights and Democatic principles, War Threats against EU Member Greece, the persisting Military Invasion and Occupation of Cyprus by Ankara's Army, the Kurdish Problem, Turkey's Refusal to Recognize the Armenian Genocide, etc. In Consequence, Brussels' Business Lobbyists risked to see many Millions $ to "Disappear" for them, and be Returned Back to EU Member States, since the End of the 1990 Decade was Approaching, withOut having managed to Spend them...

    At that Crucial Moment, Turkey asked for "a New (Funding) Program" from the EU, which could Not be Blocked as easily as all the others, on Pretext of a New Relation" with the EU, which was that Scandalous and Crazy Idea (UnThinkable then) of Ankara's so-called "Accession" process into the EU !

    After the Non-Elucidated Brutal Killing of Critical Greek Minister for EU Affairs, Yanos Kranidiotes (also of Cypriot Origin : See our relevant Articles Published then at "TCWeekly" and/or "MPAgency")), the Massive Killings of Tens of Thousands of Poor People in Turkey when their Scandalously Badly-Build Houses were Demolished by an Exceptionaly Big Earthquake near Istanbul/Constantinople, apparently Provoked by an UnderSea Drilling Deep inside the Bosphorus and Dardanellia Straights, (See our relevant Articles then at "MPAgency" and/or Other Newspapers, etc)^, added to several Exceptional Political Changes, Aggressions and/or Oppression of Critical Journaalists, the Strange Marginalisation even of French Minister for EU Affairs, afterwards Top MEP Alain Lamassoure, as he Denounced himself Later, (etc), as it's well Known, the December 1999 EU Summit at Helsinki Decided to Accept Turkey's EU Candidacy, and the Negotiations' Procedure Officialy Started on 2004.

    But the Popular and Political Struggles Against such a blattant Betrayal even of the most Elementary Principles and Values of the European Idea, (mainly by some "Fake Europeans" as the UnPopular former UK Prime Minister "Bliar", etc), Started to Reverse that Trend, through 3 "No" to EU-Referenda (in France, the Neherlands and Ireland: 2005-2007), key Elections (in France, Germany, Greece, and Other Key Countries, as well as in EU Parliament: 2005-2009), etc., Followed even by "BREXIT" (2016) and Turkey going Astray in a Hamoc (Kurds' Massacres, Psedo-"Putch" of 6 Hours, Exploited as Pretext for Hundreds of Thousands of Arrests, Torture, Killings and Lynching, Firing of Judges, Universitarians, Journalists, Teachers, MPs and Mayors, even Military staff and Soldiers, etc, added to WarShips' Bullying against EU Members Greece and Cyprus' Energy Resources, Smuggling of More than 1,5 Million Mass "Asylum Seekers"/Irregular Migrants suddenly Tresspassing into the EU through Turkey, Military Invasions/Occupations and/or Deadly Attacks in Syria (Twice), Iraq, Libya, even Armenia, etc. : 2015-2021), as well as Many very Negative Polls among European People, Notoriously Hampered, and almost "Freezed" Ankara's Controversial and UnPopular EU bid, Nowadays.

    But, Meanwhile, UnPrecedented EU Funds, of Many Billions each Year, including Full Grants, are being Paid to that Turkish Regime..., (which had almost totaly Collapsed, already on 1921, i.e. a Century Earlier : See f.ex.:... , etc).

    => Put an Official and Definite End to Ankara's controversial and unpopular EU "Candidacy" Nightmare, (which Undermined the whole EU), Obviously is an Elementary thing to do, the Soonest, Liberating, at last, Europe, from such a Heavy Blunder. After all, Even European Countries like the UK, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, etc, are Not EU Members Nowadays... Why should Ankara ?

    + However, the Question of controversial Big EU Funds (etc) to Turkey (Comp. Supra)still remains Open : Shall EU definitively Reverse the Errors of 2000-2004+, just in order to Fall Back to a ...Worse Situation than what was Already the case on 1998-1999 (Comp. Supra) ?

    The European People certainly Deserve much Better, and All Real Europeans must Help Free their immense Potential (from such Heavy Traps by Fake Europeans), in order to resolutely Develop our Historic Continent in the foreseable Future !

    EU is Not Condemned to be a Suspected Accomplice of a Retrograde and Oppressive Over-Exploitation, depending on a Turkish schema, But, on the Contrary, can and must Boost the Production of European Workers and, Mainly, Creative Innovation with strategic High-Tech. Europe's History, Culture, Potential, and Mission in the World, as well as our Citizens' Wellfare and Sovereignity, clearly point towards such an Horizon.







EU Ombudsman O'Reilly to "EF" a.o. Journalists : Transparency Problems Worsen during Virus Epidemic

Written by ACM
Tuesday, 18 May 2021



*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Speaking to "Eurofora" and other Journalists Invited to her 2021 Annual Video-Press Conference, the European Defensor of Citizens, alias "Ombudsman", Emily O'Reilly, a 3 Times re-Elected, experienced former Mainstream Medias' actor from Ireland, strongly Denounced what she called a recent "Worsening" of EU's Problems against Transparency, particularly during the current Virus' Epidemic (2020-2021).

- After presenting her Annual Report for 2020, O'Reilly extended Further Nowadays (+2021) on "Transparency" throughout EU's Commission, Parliament, Council, and/or various Other Bodies, by Criticaly Observing the existence of "a Lot of Lack of Transparency".

 - Indeed, this has Become clearly "Worse" during the current "Pandemic" of COVIT-19 Virus (2020-2021), she strongly Denounced.

- Such Problems affect, particularly, EU's "Decision-Making" process, pointed out O'Reilly, thus Focusing on the Main Area of "Eurofora"s Project for Dialogue between EU-Citizens and Political Leaders Before Decisions affecting their Lives and/or Society at large are taken, that she has partly Backed, by her relevant Replies to Our Questions, Earlier, at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, (See :http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euombudsmanoneurofforaproject.html,  Comp.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euombudsmandecisionandeuroforaproject.html, + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euparliamentonombudsmanandeurofora.html, etc).

The move obviously comes in an Exceptionaly Delicate Period, while, inter alia, f.ex., EU Commission is reportedly due to Examine and Decide on much More than a Billion € to Controversial "ANR" Genome Tool presented as "Vaccine" by Turkish "BNTech" SME, Exploited by Ugur Sahin, from Iskinderum, (near Idlib), which had been Funded by Bill Gates since 2019, in a Commercial Deal with USA's "Pfizer", managed by a Greek-origin CEO, linked to pro-"Socialist" Millionaires who had asked Political Asylum ...in Turkry (sic !) in the Past. Despite its "Hot" Cost, added to a Heavy ... -70 F. Degrees' Icy Temperature making its Handling Nasty, that "Vaccine"'s Managers notoriously Refuse USA and EU's alleged Ideas to Skip "Owner"'s Exclusive Rights on such Drugs, in order to Boost People's Access, in Europe and Worldwide. Meanwhile, it has practicaly enured, Currently, a quasi-Monopole in the EU, since the >EU Commission drags its feet, apparently Reluctant, until now, to Athorize any Other Vaccine, among Various Candidates from Many Other Countries, as Europe, (Historic Inventor Pasteur's Fatherland), Curiously, has Not Yet discovered Any Vaccine against this Deadly Virus...

    - However, O'Reilly's Criticism targeted mainly "the (EU) Council".   There where, f.ex., if a Small-Medium EU Member State, desperely strives to Defend a Key National Issue of Public Interest, amidst Others' total Indifference, this might find, perhaps, some kind of Sympathy. But Not if it's one or more Big States and/or Lobies eager to Impose a GeoPolitical and/or SocioPolitical Appartheid-like Division accross the EU, merely seeking one or another kind of selfish Dominance...





Macron launching the Conference on EU's Future: for a New European Legend ?

Written by ACM
Sunday, 09 May 2021

*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- "Succeed ... to Create New Legends" in Europe, particularly through "ambitious", key "Big ¨Projects" and "Big Dreams", at the Horison of the next "10 Years", thanks Also to "a much Needed, nowadays, New Breath of Democracy", emerge as the Main Aims of EU's Conference on Eurpope's Future for French President Emmanuel Macron, who Launched Officialy Today, in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, Together wth the Presidents of all EU Institutions, the Beginning of such an UnPrecedented, original collective Event, due to Culminate during the French EU Presidency of 2022.

    + As Macron Resumed soon Afterwards, speaking to Journalists in EU Parliament, "this will be the Year of Joint Reflexions and Projects", where "we have the Right to hold Big Ambitions".


    - For such a purpose, "Be Together in Strasbourg Today, this May 9", (Day of Europe and of Victory against NAZIsm on 1945), "says much on what we (Europeans) have worked during 71 Years", since "this City is the  living Symbol of Reconciliation" and "of that Europe which Refused War, in order to Buid Peace, replacing Occupation by Cooperation", and "we canNot build a European Imaginary, a Feeling of Common Belonging, withOut Symbols", as "Strasbourg, which is Also Home to what Europe thought and wanted in her Democratic appeal and its Values", since "Here beats the Heart of European Democracy, CoE and EU Parliament, i.e. of the Values that Unite us and Inspire us in Building the Future too", he observed.

    - In fact, Nowadays, "our Union Needs a New Democratic Breath, (particularly with Citizens' participation, etc), and that's the Meaning of this Conference on Europe's Future", stimulating a "Founding Momentum".


    - Because "we should Not become Accustomed to the Present Situation and to the Weaknesses which appear" : "Whenever grand Crisis arrive", as in "this Unprecedented Context" of "the Pandemic which Hits as, since More than 1 Yeatr, Everywhere in the World, but Particularly in Europe", "as in the Past, there are Always profound Doubts, ...which seek to Challenge what we are,  and Underestimate what we have built" : "That's the Risk Nowadays, of Impatience, Lassitude, a kind of Depression, which would have been spread, of Confusion ...where, suddenly, All is Disolved". "This kind of ambiant Defaitism, boils down into claiming that "Europe is Not Up to the present Requirements. We have Not what is needed. I already hear such Accusations against Europe, Each Morningl", he Denounced.


     - In fact, "Democracy is one of our (EU's) Great Forces. It belongs to our Identity", Macron went on to add.

    - "Nevertheless, it's insidiously Challenged, more en more, in the name of a so-called "Efficiency"", by "those who Claim that Authoritarian Regimes would be More Efficient into facing Crisis, they would go Faster". But they "Forget the Real Consequences of Authoritarian Regimes : Deprivations of Liberty, Persecutions of Political Dissidents, Jailing of Journalists or Universitarians" (etc), "They Forgot the bites of History, those who back such trends"...

    - On the Contrary, "we must Congratulate ourselves (EU) for having continued to Debate, to pursue, in all ou Democracies, everywhere in Europe, the Democratic Debate, Criticism, Contest, Dispute, Quarell, Parliamentary and Judiciary Control : That's what defines us, and it's also in this way that we (Europeans) become more Efficient, Because that's what allows Democratic and Calm Criticisicm", Macron pointed out. *

    => "Our European Identity is a Productive, Solidary, and Democratic Model, ...attached to the preservation of (Natural) Environment and Climate : An Ambition that that we have pursued" even "during the (Virus') Crisis, with the Green Deal", "a Fair Regulation of Digital Platforms, and Private Life protection. It's the Respect of Law and Liberties", where "Strasbourg is, there too, the main Symbol", he added.

    - "It's a Model Based on an Economic and Social System which showed its Resilience also During the Virus' Pandemic) Crisis, (Comp. f.ex. the Exceptionaly Important and Innovating EU Summit of July 2020 in Brussels, f.ex. at : ... + ... + ..., etc), and we (EU) have Strenthened even More, Yesterday, in Porto (EU informal Summit), in order to Adapt it to Green and Digital Transitions, and bring, there too, New Protections to our Workers, allow a(n Economic) Growth, a Creation of Jobs, synonumous to a Fight against Exclusion and Poverty, promotion of Equality between Women and Men, Respect of Fundamental Rights fo all Workers in all chains of value. That's our (EU's) Model, and I'd like to Remind it here, before we Think about the 10 next Years to come, Because we must Never let it be Weakened : It's a Tresor conquered accross the Times, since it had Nothing Spontaneous", he Warned.

    + But it's also true that "this (Virus') Crisis revealed also some Weaknesses, and ...this Conference on Europe's Future must Help us to Respond to them", since "the Expectations that we Legitimately have, must be Inspired by the Lessons of the (Pandemic) Crisis",  Macron incited.

    (1) "First of all, we understood that Solidarity goes hand to hand Together with Sovereignity", stressed the French President. "We (EU) canNot ...Help the most Fragile People in our Societies, If we doN't Produce". Thus, we (EU Member Countries) were Divided, at the Beginning of this Crisis, on Buying Masks, sometimes on Closing our Borders, even on the (Economic) Revival. We were Divided each time that we did Not have the Reply in Our Hands", so that "we realized that Sovereignity is Also  the Capacity to Produce". "We canNot have a Europe Able to meet its History and Values if we don't become Conscious of the fact that we (EU) are Not merely a big Market of Consumers open to any winds", he Warned. On the Contrary, "we must (also) become anew Producers : ...anew a community of Great Researchers, great Creators, great Artists, great Industry" leaders. "Because Produce, Create on our Land is a Guarantee of our Sovereignity, a Protection for our Model (of Society : Comp. Supra), of our Values : This Cultural, Academic, Industrial, Reasearch's Sovereignity is absolutely Essential !", Macron stressed.

    => "In order to Build that, we (EU) sometimes must ReConquer anew what we had abandoned" , "Identify our strategic Dependencies, and Reply with European industrial Alliancies", ("as,  we've Started to do, ..f.ex. on Batteries and Hydrogen, Semi-Conductors, Clouds", etc., and "Vaccins"). "We Must Advance much Further, because, each time that there is External Dependence, there is (also) European Division", he warned.

    (2) "We have also learned, during the (Virus') Crisis, ...that our Europe was InComplete :"

    - Indeed, "When Europe has the Capacity to act, it acts, as long as it's inspired by Political Will". F.ex. "since March 2020, ...a Central European Bank at the Height" of circumstances, "and afterwards a Pragmatic Suspension of our Budgetary and Competition Rules, allowed, at any cost, our Will for (Economic) Revival",

    - "But, in a number of areas, the EU has Not similar Competences or means", he regretted. F.ex., "1 Year ago, it was so Powerless in the area of Health", and ...it still is Nowadays. This Weakness explained our (EU Member States') Difficulties to be coordinated", Indeed, "in front of Big Schocs , as the Pandemics, we (EU) Must Strengthen our Joint Capacities, because an Adequate Reply stands at a European Level", he pointed out.

    (3) "Last", but not least, "we have observed, sometimes, that Europe doesN"t work Fast enough, and, may be, hadN't sufficient Ambition". F.ex. "3 Years Ago,  here, I told you that I was convinced that, in face of Authoritarianism, the Only adequate Reply was the Authority of Democracy", which "is gained only by Efficiency and Rapidity". But, "our European Democracy is based on Compromise", and "Balance, which is a Virtue that we must protect as a Treasure, because it Avoids any Hegemony. However, it's Also a Weakeness, when it's Suffocating in its own Procedures". In consequence, "We (EU) Must find a new Efficiency and Ambition. Be able to Face Crisis, Adversities, Decide Faster, and, above all, with More Strength".

     - F.ex., when "I see the Numbers of many of Our Projects of Research, Investment in Industrial matters of the Future", and "I Compare them to those of the Chinese or of Americans, we (EU) are Not yet at the Hight of this Ambition: We take, sometimes, Too Many Long Months, in order to reach the end of Investment Decisions which are 5 or 10 Times Less Important than what are our American Friends", he Criticized. Europe has an Advance "in Solidarity" (Comp. Supra), But "Must Find" also "the taste of Future and Rapidity. Invest Massively and ... Fast" enough. "In such matters, we (EU) Must succeed to go Faster, and learn how to Find anew Force and Rapidity in Essential Issues", Macron urged.

    (4) "Finaly, this (Virus' Pandemic) Crisis Affected our Lives profoundly : It Restricted our Horizons, Limited our Aspirations, Imposed Borders to our Displacements, (even) to our Dreams". Particularly for "Young Europeans", and "Artists", etc., "who Suffered very much by this Crisis", "Deprived of their Contacts", etc., he noted.

    - "But, Nothing is Fatal, and ...the Moment that we Launch this Conference is Essential, because it's that from which we should Find anew a Way towards the Future", Macron Optimisticaly invited.



    => "That's what is the Conference on Europe's Future about : To Find anew a Collective Democratic Respiration", he stressed. "It should be Inspired from those Lessons that I described, in a Non-Exhaustive list, But Also guided by a Method allowing to Find Long-Term Perspectives, and to forge a Common Vision", he highlighted.

    >> - "Thus, there will be 1 Year of Debates, ...Open to Everybody : to the Institutions, the Parliament, the Social Partners, ...the Think-Tanks, to All Citizens at a European Level, to Local levels, at the (Web) Platform On-Line, available in All (EU) Languages, to Citizens' Panels", he indicated.  "It will be an UnPrecedented Exercice : Take the Pulse of the (European) Continent regarding Our Future !"

F.ex., "in France, we shall Oganise, from the Beginning of Autumn (2021), Citizens' Debates in All Regions, and I asked from all Members of the Government to get Involved", he announced.

    >>> Europe-Wide, "We (Top EU Politicians) Must undertake a Collective Commitment Today : From March 2022, when the Synthesis of Contributions and Debates will be established, we, Political Leaders of various Member States, of EU Parliament, Commission, Will Have to Take that into Account in order to Reform Europe". And, personaly, "I take the Commitment, in the name of the French Presidency of EU's Council, during the 1st Semester of 2022, that the work of the Conference will be Largely Fruitfull, and, for that purpose, we'll Need that All Get Involved", Macron vowed.

    - "That's for the Method. As for the Content, it's for You (involved EU Politicians and Citizens, together) to Write it", the French President modestly Urged. Concerning that, however, "I Wish that this Conference will Announce a Return of Big Projects, Large Ambitions, Great Dreams !", he rightfuly Incited, (anew in a key Direction for which "Eurofora" Pleaded particularly during the Crucial July 2020 EU Brussels' Summit on Relanching the EU Economy, also in order to Succeed to Overcome initial Differences and Find an Agreement between All EU Member States, as it was, indeed, Later done at the End : See ..., etc).

 - "What Europe do we Want in 10 or 15 Years ? With What Borders for it ? Which New (EU) Institutions ? What Big Cultural Projects to Lounch Together ? Why make our Europe the Leader in Reducing (C02) Emissions Faster ? How to Build that Europe of Education, of (Scientific) Research, even More Strong ? New Frontiers in Space, as in our Oceans ? => I.e., "in substance, How to Succeed to Write New Legends ?", Macron wondered.

    >>> Indeed, on this Key point of Synthesis : "A French Poet, recently forgotten, Fabrice de la Tour du Pin, stressed : - "All Countries which do Not have Legends, no more, are Condemned to Die from the Cold !" It's the Same with our Europe : If we do Not have Legends, no more, we shall Die from the Cold", he Warned.

    => But, in fact, "We (EU) Have a(n Historic) Legend. We've just had a look at it, in a Hurry (Comp. Supra). What we Need is to Write New ones. It's up to us, it's up to You to Do so : Thus, I Count on You !", Macron urged, in conclusion.



    + 1st to Speak among EU Institutions' Heads, EU Parliament's President, David Sassoli, from Italy, started by pointing at the Symbolic "Impportance for this major Democratic exercise", as he called the Launching of the Conference, to take place "Here in the ...Home of European Citizens ... in Strasbourg, the Seat of our institution, from which we've been absent for so many months as a result of the covid-19 Pandemic", and where  "We (MEPs)...Hope ... very soon be able to Return" for "the Plenary Sessions".

    - Already, "Before the pandemic, the parliament firmly believed in the importance of having an event such as this", he reminded. But, even "Today, after 15 Months of Crisis" and "Delay", at least, ," t's very Clear to us what has Worked and what hasN't worked. It's much clearer to us where the European Union is Strong,... But we're Also aware of where we're Weak and what we could Improve", he pointed out.

    I.e., "the lessons we've learnt from covid are iImportant ones", since, in the EU, "some things have Not worked, and some have", Sassolii observed.

    => So, in general, "We want to Improve the way in which we Function", even if "we firmly Believe that Democracy is stronger than authoritarianism". Therefore Sassoli presented a Series of Concrete Points that EU has to settle :

- "Europe needs to have ... clear Competences in many areas, ...in which member States alone would be Marginalised", he warned.  

- Moreover, "We need to become capable of taking Rapid decisions"... But if" the EU "has to decide Unanimously, if there can be Vetoes, How can it ..respond effectively ?", he wondered.

  => In ordet to Solve such Issues, "We (EU)... Need to move forward with this Unprecedented exercise (the Conference) in Democracy. Institutions and Citizens" together, and "Discuss the way we are withOut Taboos",  But "clear, Pragmatic Suggestions", "Based on recommendations made by Citizens and Debates in the plenary,...followed by Action", he stressed, as well as "a Compass to Guide our work during the coming Decade."

      - F.ex, inter alia, "we need a European policy on human Health".

    - "Social dimension", (particularly after the "Porto" Summit of 7-8/5/2021.

    - "The Right of (Legislative) Initiative should be given to EU Parliament", he added, (while "Eurofora" has succesfuly proposed to Top MEPs to get it Immediately, on  the Basis of the existing Lisbon Treaty, simply by Cooperating adequately with "Citizens' Initiatives", (See : ... + ..., etc).

    - We "also need to increase the Transparency of Elections and enable Citizens to indicate their preference for President of the Commission", so. I hope that the Conference will also deal with the Lead (Spitzen)  Candidate Issue", EU Parliament's Head added.

    - Moreover, "it's Crucial to look at the issue of Unanimity in the (EU) Council", he reminded (Comp. Supra).

    >>> Both in these, and ssveral Other Issues, Sassoli said that he "Firmly Believe(s)  that the awareness of our unity and a common destiny is shared by the majority of our Citizens", because "without a European policy, all our countries, all our communities ... would be Weaker".

    => Therefore, he Optimisticaly  believes that Citizens' involvement may Help to "build a Stronger, more resilient, more Democratic and more United Europe", Such "Message(s) ... can Incite our Citizens to Give us the Responses we Need !", Sassoli optimisticaly suggested.



    Antonio Costa, Prime Minister of Portugal and current Chairman of EU Council, who had just Hosted all EU Heads of State/Government in a Summit at Porto, Startes with "a message of Confidence in the Future", by observing that almost everything "Changes" in Humans' Lives usually, and it's often "Needed to Develop New Qualities".

    -"71 Years ago", Europe had Started with a mere "Steel and Coal Community", he reminded. "Moves", sometimes needed "Difficult Choices" and/or "Compromises", were not always made at the same time for all. Now "there is a Desire to Move Forward, But we should Not allow Problems to exist, which can Undermine Cohesion", he warned. Particularly since "we're still far away from where we need to be".

Nowadays, f.ex., "Solidarity", "Share of Resources", "Migration", etc., could be Adressed by the Conference, "Frankly and Openly". "New times require new ways of working".

    >>> But, what is Specific, this time, is that "this conference ... should Focus on all the different desires and roles of all the Citizens in Europe, and Not on negotiations between Countries. This is a conference For Citizens, By Citizens and For Citizens! !", Costa stressed.     

    - In fact, "European Citizens Recognise the added V alue of EU action" in general, But want it to Solve  certain "Specific Problems that Citizens face".

     -- Indeedf, "over the past 10 Years, ....Major Topics are Continually quoted as sources of Concern" : F.ex. Islamist "Terrorism" and "Migration", "Economic/Social situation, and  Climate", etc. Over the past 12 Months, "Health" was added.

    => Thus, "We Veed to ensure Vast Citizen Participation. This is a Key point. The conference on the future of Europe should Focus on the Women and Men of Europe. What is Troubling these people? What is making them Dream? This should Not be an exercise which is based in Brussels", the Prime Ministet Warned.

    In this regard, f.ex., "the very High Youth Unemployment rate", and "the difficulties for access to Housing", which humper the "Young Generation", have to be tackled, he Urged, inter alia. Because "Europe will have No future, if our young generations do not have a future in Europe", while, Nowadays, "the largest Threat to the future of Europe and to the prosperity of Europe is the Ageing population", (i.e. the Restriction of Births among European People), he Denounced.

    + Meanwhile, in Addition, Europe "must therefore take the Lead in the Major Causes of Humanity in our century", Costa urged. Such moves should obviously include Nowadays also "BioEthics", where Recent Technological developments have Reached a Crucial Threshhold for the survival of the Human Race, (already since 11/2018, with Artificial Births including Genetic Manipulations of Human Embryos in Labos, which are scandalously and dangerously Transmssible to Future Generations), But also the "Oceans", to which Costa, (in a typical Portugeese Tradition), Focused Today, citting their "BioDoversity and Resources",(etc).

=> Concluding, once again, the EU Council's Chairman-in-office reiterated a vibrant Call for the European People to get massively involved in EU's Conference on Europe's Future :  - "I'd like to give my final words to the People of Europe : ... This conference is Open. It's open, so that All of you can Participate in it", he Invited.



Ursula von der Leyen, EU Commission's President, was the last EU Istitution's Head to take the floor Today :

- "We should be honest that the conference is not a panacea or a solution to every problem", But "we must Listen to All voices, whether Critical or  Complimentary", she stressed from the outset.

    >>> The Main Point for von der Leyen is that "this conference is a real Opportunity to bring Europeans Together, and to Rally around a Common ambition for our future".

    -Because, otherwise, recently, "there are certain Dichotomies and issues that we should attempt to resolve. F.ex.  some feel Europe is Too Close and too involved in their lives, and for Others it is far too far Away and too Remote and too detached", she Warned. +Moreover, "For some, the narrative of Peace is Not as compelling as for others", she regretted. => Therefore, "this (Conference) is an Opportunity to help Build a New Common Purpose for All Europeans" she Urged.  *

+ Moreover, "the Pandemic has been Traumatic for people in Europe", ("Epicenter" of the World, since March 2020). So that, in order "to move Beyond it", "there is no better way to do that than by offering Perspective, Hope and the Ability to Change things for the Better", (including through this Conference).

- "This pandemic stole more than a year from them. It stole experiences and emotions"..."It stole opportunities from them... And more than anything. It made so Many People, Old or Young, feel Anxious, lonely, and simply Less in Control of their Lives and their future. For the First time in a generation, more people Worry that their children will not be better off than them".

    => "This shows that we Need a New form of Solidarity and social justice Between Generations", she Urged. "This is about justice and rights, not only within our current society, but Across the Generations", Von der Leyen wenst on to add. "I believe we should use this Conference in order to hold a genuine, structured Dialogue between the Generations".   

     - "My view is that Europe has always been at its Best when it is Reverse Engineered. We are at our Boldest when we 1st set an Ambitious goal, or have to act out of Necessity, often without competence or precedence. This is the Europe that Rises to the Challenge, the Europe that just Does it because it Needs to be done", she stressed, focusing on "what Brings Generations Together".

    - "And what will Europe do? What will she Defend ....? Will she be respectful, more Diversified, more United? Or will she be Divided as often we were in the past? These matters may seem too large or too distant, whereas there are so Many Immediate Challenges. However, the course of Our Action will Determine the answers that we will be looking for Tomorrow. And that's precisely why we Need this Conference and why we need to get it Started Now", Von der Leyen urged. .

    => "We will Tackle this task with Humility, recognising that Not everything is Ideal, But also with a real sense of Pride, knowing where we are coming from and the Conviction of what Must be done", she vowed, Concluding "with  Antoine de Saint-Exupery", (who has lived in Strasbourg) : The Most beautiful profession a man can have is that of Bringing men Together. It's up to us Now to keep on Doing that".



           Last, but not least, Experienced Top MEP, former Prim-e Minister of Belgium and f. Presiden of the Liberal Group of MEPs, currently EU Parliament's Head Representative to the Conference on Europe's Future, as well as Co-Chair of that Conference, Guy Verhofstadt, from Belgium, (after a Last-Minute Change of Agenda, just to skip an Euro-Regions' parallel Meeting in Strasbourg, in order to Join EU Parliament's main Meeting with Macron and All EU Institutions' Heads), was the 1st to Reply to an EU Citizen's Question on EU and Culture :

    - "Culture  can become an EU Competence", Verhofstadt replied from the outset. "It's quite Emotional". But, "for me, f.ex. Goethe, Voltaire, the Enlighnement, or Florence and Strasbourg, are European realities". Often, "some Small Things are enough : F.ex., print also a beautiful European Monument in €uro-Bank-notes, and not only National ones. Or, in the Olympic Games, to put, on Players' jackets, from one Side the National Flag, and from another, the European Flag", he suggested, attracting a positive node by President Macron....(Comp. a relevant "Eurofora" Publication on EU and Sport, at : ...). In fact, "Culture needs to be in the Heart of the approach, because it's the Most Solid Base of the EU !", he concluded.




    + Meanwhile, Earlier Today, at a  relevant Event organized by the European Regions in the City Hall, (Symbolicaly inside the Historic Room where CoE was Created, 71 Years Before), at the Particular Local/Regional Level of Strasbourg's City and EU Regions, at EU's Franco-German Core, New Mayor Jeanne Barseghian (atypical "Green" from Armena), and Region President Jean Rottner, both felt that they had Specific Potential and Duty to Help Boost EU Citizens' role in the Conference on Europe's Future  :


- Barseghian (who has Already expressed several times her Agreement with "Eurofora"'s Project : See ...+ ... + ....) Focused Mainly on "Digital" and "Citizens' Participation" Tools, vowing to make them available to the People for such purposes, as well as offering to Host most Citizens' forthcoming Collective Events, during a Year, added to a possible EU Citizens' Summit.


- Rottner, (who represented also the whole National Union of Regions of all France), pointed at the Unique Dimension of the "Trans-Border Fact" in Strasbourg's "Great East" Region, located Near Italy, facing Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, and even Switzerland, (a Franco-Germano-Italian cultural Synthesis), giving a particular Potential towards "all European People" by considerably "Facilitating" the "absolutely Crucial Echanges" between them, (Comp. Relevant Rottner's replies to "Eurofora"s Questions, f.ex. at: ... + ..., etc), and Ensured about the Region's Political "Will" to Help "Enable Everybody", including "the Youth", to participate in a large "Critical Dialogue" on the Future of Eurpope, in order to "Think of a New World", after the Pandemic, as he highlighted.


+ He was followed by the President of the European entity of Alsace, (emerging from a recent Fusion of High and Low Rhine Departments around their Histpric Area),  Frederic  Bierry, who stressed, in particular, that this EU's Conference on Europe's Future, in particular, "is about Our European Identity" and "Development", currently facing various exceptional "Challenges" thearening even to "Destroy" it, so that "it"s Essential" to Boost People's "Feeling of Common Belonging", through its debates and outcome.



++ Speaking Earlier, the EU Commissioner in charge of Democracy and the CEFuture, Dubravka Šuica, Ambitiously focused on the aspiration to "Bring (EU) Citizens into the Heart of Decision-Making", in a New way, which could "offer a Greater Role to Citizens, Beyond (EU) Elections" (just once in 5 Years).

Meanwhile, in order to Achieve that, EU Citizens have, During the Conference on Europe's Future, 3 Possibilities to InterAct : - "On the (Web) Platform, in the (Citizens') Panels, and at the Plenary", she resumed.

+++ Interestingly, Many among the other Speakers, (including MEP Eva Maydell, International President of the European Movement : Comp. her Earler Statements to "Eurofora" f.ex. at : ... etc), stressed, in Various Converging Ways, that "we (EU) Need to Hear Criticism" also, from a part of the People whenever there are doubts or misundestandings to dissipate, and "Listen to Critical Voices" too, withOut Ignoring them, as it was Repeatedly pointed out.

Indeed, this 2021-2022 EU's CEFuture must "Not play down the Expectations of the People", but, on the Contrary, "Deliver" on them, because, in fact, "this is about <<We, the European People>> and Trust", Concluded in substance, on behalf of the EU Council's rotating Chairmanship, Vasco Alves Cordeira, from the Regional Parliament of Acores, and 1st vice-President of EU's Comittee of Regions, as a final Warning.








Polls: 91% of Europeans for EF Project on EU-Citizens interaction before Deciding on their Future

Written by ACM
Saturday, 08 May 2021

*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/-
As it was Already Voted and Adopted by the EuroMetropole of Strasbourg Citizens' Assembly, on "Eurofora"s proposal, in the context of French President Emmanuel Macron's "Great Debate" as early as since 2019 (*), it's also an EU-Wide Polls from the End of 2020, just fully Published by EU Parliament and Commission on 2021, at the Eve of the Launch of EU's landmark "Conference on the Future of Europe" (2021-2022), scheduled on "Europe"'s Day, 9 May, here, (with Speeches from Presidents Macron, Sassoli, and Other Officials), and, precisely, on the Anniversary of the Historic Victory against Nazism, which opened an Era officialy based on Peace, Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law throughout Europe, (also with the Creation of the CoE, 72 Years earlier, since 1949, etc), revealed that an UnExpected, Huge Majority of EU Citizens seem to practicaly Back the Main Idea of a Previous Interaction, Between EU Citizens and Decision-Makers, before Measures affecting their Lives and/or Society at large might be taken...

- Total or Partial Agreement with such a stance was reportedly Endorsed by 91% or 92% of the People consulted.

- The Key-point was Not Elections, but "Decisions" taken by Public Authorities.

- It was clear that relevant Action should be taken mainly Before Decisions, (and Not  Afterwards).

- The Concrete Content of what exactly should be done by the Public Authorities was Not Specified, leaving a kind of Discretionary Choice for the most Adequate Moves, almost as in "Eurofora"'s proposal.

- But it was obvious that this concerned the Public Decision-Making Process, including some kind of Exchange or Dialogue, between Politicians and Citizens, ("take into Account Citizens' Voice").

- The possibility of a Legal Control by a Judge was left Open, as in "Eurofora"'s project, (where it may play a notable potential role).

- Ibid, for possible Legal (and Not Only Political) Sanctions, in case of Abuse.  

- The Integration and development of such Mechanisms in the System of  nowadays European Societies appears quite Easy, given the Availability of relevant contemporary Tools. 

- Curiously, that Poll was made between October and November 2020, But wasN't fully Published before May 2021 !

    The recent paradox of freezing EU Talks with front-runner Croatia, while continuing controversial EU - Turkey talks, despite Zagreb's acceptance of Refugees' Human Rights to return, that Ankara refuses fex. in Cyprus, while both have "Good Neighborhood" problems vis a vis Slovenia, or Greece, Cyprus and Armenia respectively, can it be justified by the non-fullfilment of EU criteria, as Slovenia says, or, is it "Double Standards" ?    

The question became unavoidable after statements by Presidents of Slovenia and Croatia, Tuerk and Mesic, respectively, to "EuroFora", exclusively or among Strasbourg's journalists this week at the CoE, on the sidelines of its 2009 Summer University for Political Schools, which topically brought them together as successive key-note speakers.

    Comming only a few Months before EU checks Turkey's compliance to its commitments on Cyprus, etc., scheduled for December 2009, this obviously has a special importance for the coherence of EU Enlargement's principles.

     Suspension of EU Negotiations is a normal consequence in case of a Candidate Country's failure to fullfil EU Conditions, such as "Good Neighborhood relations", stressed at first Slovenian President Danilo Tuerk, current CoE's chair.

    But, regarding EU's Criteria,  there shouldn't be any "Double Standards",  reacted Croatian President Stjepan Mesic, commenting the fact that Turkey's controversial EU negotiations continue, while they were recently "freezed" in the case of Croatia, an "unquestionably European Country", which oficially accepts to respect Refugees Human Rights, contrary to Ankara's notorious refusals or reluctance.

Questioned earlier what "consequences on EU's Enlargement policy" can have the "Ban on EU Membership Negotiations", imposed to Croatia, Tuerk replied that "this question comes down to the fulfillement of (EU) Criteria for membership. One has to look at each Candidate Country ., from the point of view whether it fullfils the Criteria that EU has set. One of them are Good Neighborhood Relations, I'd like to remind. And also, there are other factors, such as Justice, Home affairs, Rule of Law, and others".

    - "Now, ..Candidate Countries are at Different Levels of fulfillement of Criteria", he observed.

    - " Croatia is obviously the closest to that. I'm rather optimistic : I think that in the coming Months we'll have an opportunity to look at all these issues constructively and hopefully we'll be able to make progress". "My main concern, at this point, is the situation in Bosnia : We haven't seen enough progres domesticaly. We haven't seen enough during ..political parties within their country.We need a New Energy, a new energetic move towards the Candidature for EU membership. "Other (Western Balkan) Countries (Serbia, Montenegro, FYROM, Albania) have been making soaring Progress, and I think that they should be ready, in a few Years, for the Candidate status".

    - "As far as the Western Balkans are concerned, .. nobody should be left outside" the EU, Slovenian's President concluded, ommitting to mention Turkey's controversial EU bid.

    - "This process may be seen as Slow, but..  Slovenia has also has also been exposed to various "Booms of Slowness" in our accession period. But now we can say that the process was relatively quick, because changes which occur after becoming EU member, are quite large, and they require proper Preparations before the (EU) membership becomes a new factor, an impacting line for a new (EU) member country".

EU "Solidarity" ?

Slovenian statements made some participants from certain 3rd Countries as FYROM, etc. claim that "the Principle of EU Solidarity" would "produce a.. rising European Union Nationalism (sic !), against Non-EU Countries", as they said, asking unhappy foreign countries to form a "bloc" to exert pressure on the EU...    

But Croatian President Stjepan Mesic dismissed that, supporting "EU Integration", "after the Economy also in Political" issues, as "the achievement" of our times. In EU there is "diversity, but it's United", he stressed, "EU has to be United so that it can become a central factor of Peace" also at the surrounding areas, he replied.


Speaking later exclusively to "EuroFora", the experienced twice President of Croatia, former President of the International "Non-Aligned" movement, denounced "Double Standards" in the way EU treats recently Croatia compared to Turkey :   

 - "I think that there shouldn't be Double Standards", stressed the Croatian President, in reply to a Question comparing the freeze of EU - Croatia talks, with the continuation of EU - Turkey talks, despite the fact that Croatia is an "unquestionably European country", while Turkey's EU bid is notoriously controversial.

    Mesic was reacting to the observation that, even if he confirmed his "respect of Refugees' Human Rights to return, etc. (See infra), nevertheless, EU talks are suspended with Croatia.. While for oher, controversial candidates, who refuse to respect Refugees' Rights to return, etc., as fex. Turkey does in occupied Cyprus and elsewhere, EU negotiations continue".

    - "I believe that Croatia's accession will confirm that all European Countries who fulfill all of the Conditions and achieve European Standards, have to join the EU. There shouldn't be any Double Standards", went on to add in reply President Mesic.

    In this relation, Croatia's President found "of paramount importance", CoE's "mechanisms enforcing ECHR's judgements"
    - "On Refugees and Displaced persons, the process will be completed only after the last person demanding to return will be allowed to do so !", President Mesic Croatia stressed earlier, setting a general standard of obvious importance also for otherr candidates, as f.ex. Turkey, often accused to exclude or heavily restrict Greek Cypriot Displaced persons' return to their Family Homes and ancestral land, provoke difficulties to Turkish-Kurd IDPs return to their home regions at the South-East, etc.

    Some "2.000 People are still reported Missing" in former Yugoslavia, for some Years, (as in Cyprus, modern Europe's oldest case, for 3 Decades. Nagorno-Karabach, Tcecnya in Russia, etc, more recently), and Investigations "will only be completed after establishing the fate of the last one of them", he added.
    Speaking earlier on "War Crimes", President Mesic stressed that "Leaders are responsible for (the) Wars (of the Past), not the People", and called against Impunity :  "Individuals have to be held Responsible for Crimes. International Penal Tribunals have to persecute those individuals", perpetrators of War Crimes, he underlined.

    Such statements naturally made Mesic rather popular at ECHR, whose President, French EuroJudge, Professor Jean-Paul Costa, looked particularly smiling when he welcomed him later on Wednesday afternoon, after Slovenian President Daniko Tuerk earlier this week.



2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
