*Strasbourg./Salle de l'Aubette/Angelo Marcopolo/- Famous Ecology and Civil Society Activist and Lawyer, former Minister of Environment and MEP, Corinne Lepage, speaking at Strasbourg's European Bio-Ethical Forum (FEBS), launched a vibrant Call to Change or Stop the TransAtlantic Trade Partnership (TTIP), while USA - EU Negotiations intensify this week where Monsantos a.o. American Multinationals' GMOs, (including, this time, no only Plants but also Animals), were anew at the forefront.


On the Contrary, by a Timely coincidence, this Same Day, Russia started an Official Legal procedure in order to OutLaw GMOs, both of Plants and Animals, (except for Scientific Reseacrh purposes), after a Government's Draft Bill was registered at the Duma for Final Adoption !

EU has set the End of 2015 as a non-binding  Time Deadline for the completion of Negotiations both on the Trans-Atlantic and on the EU - EurAsian Trade Areas, (the latter on the occasion of the Ukranian issue). If both are concluded, then, the practical result might be close to  a Huge Trade Area from Vancoover up to Vladivostok...

 

- "Nothing goes with it, it's completely flawed !", strongly Criticized Lepage the TTIP, in reply to an "EuroFora"s Question, at the conclusion of a Massively attended 2 Hours' Conference on the Harmful consequences that some Substances may have to the detriment of Human Health, organized in the framework of the Annual, 2015 Strasbourg's European Forum on BioEthics, during which she was several times Applauded by a particularly numerous Audience in the completely full, Biggest Main Room of the Historic Artistic Monument of "Aubette", at the center of the City which Hosts both EU Parliament's Plenary sessions and the PanEuropean CoE with its ECHR, etc.

Lepage has founded and co-directs a "Committee for Research and Independent Information on Genetic Engineering", (CRIIGEN), and was Keynote Speaker among various other Scientific Experts and/or Ecological NGO representatives in Today's main Lecture/Debates session of FEBS, where she focused particularly on the Need for thorough Scientific Expertise with Contradictory debates involving Citizens and all Civil Society.

There is a Strong Will in the EU to advance on a Trans-Atlantic Trade Area in order to Boost Trade on the Way Out of the Global Crisis, and Lepage has recently lost an ambitious bid to create a New Political Movement, at the latest, May 2014 EU Parliament's Elections.

But, as several mainstream Media note, there is still a Vocal Opposition, particularly inside EU Parliament, which cannot be ignored.

In a last-minute, surprise move, New EU Chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, anounced a proposal in Strasbourg to open an EU Parliament debate on Europe's Identity in the ranup to 2009 Election :

    - "I am conscious of the fact that there is, today, a real Crisis on Europe's
Identity", he replied earlier to a question by Greek MEP Ioanis Varvitsiotes, who had asked him to "advance beyond those who don't really want a Political Europe",

    - "Why not a real Debate on what is Europe's Identity ?", proposed
Sarkozy, in this regard.

    -  "EU Parliament could organize such Debates", he suggested :"It's
better for EU Parliament, than for National Governments, or EU Commission, to
define what is the European Identity", the French President proposed.

    A diplomatic way to avoid obstacles by some Governments and/or some Brussels' bureacrats, reportedly opposed to really free and popular, critical European debates on hot political issues..

    Sarkozy brillantly won the 2007 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections in France in 2007, in the line of the principles anounced at an important Speech in Strasbourg, February 2007, about a Political Europe, and a European Identity on issues which matter to the People.

   

Polls

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 ?
