*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.

* EuroCorps, EU defence's etat major, which has just celebrated 15 years of age (1993 - 2008), is young enough to feel enthousiasm for missions to guarantee Human Rights, Peace and reconcilation : Strasbourg's Historic Symbols, but also maturing fast, (particularly under the current French EU Presidency), in order to prepare potentialy important developments in 2009 :

- "EUROCORPS" is a "unique tool" for "a Modern Europe", jointly managed by participating Nations without anyone deciding for others", to "support their efforts to promote Reconciliation, Peace and Human Rights' Values, which identify today's European ideal, with its Symbol-City : Strasbourg", stressed its Chief, Spanish General Pedro PITARCH, in a popular ceremony for the 15th Anniversary of the European Army Corps, at its Headquarters.

- "Today, we are ready and able to fullfil any Peace-keeping Mission may be decided by the Political leadership, since we can deploy up to 60.000 soldiers and/or other agents, mainly in land, but in coordination with Sea and Air operarions", (even to build vital Infrastructures, demining, keep public order, facilitate Elections, etc), said to EuroFora EUROCORPS' Spokesman and Press Director, Colonel Raul SUEVOS.

- "If there is an Agreement with the framework Nations, EUROCORPS could certainly contribute to guarantee manifold aspects of Peace setllements", told us recently General PITARCH.

EU Parliament asked, Summer 2008 in Strasbourg, " to place Eurocorps as a standing force under EU command", and "invited all (EU) Member States to contribute to it".

France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, and Luxembourg (participating with Funds, Telecoms and Officers), are EUROCORPS"' main "Framework Nations", due to be joined by Italy in 2009. Greece and Austria participate as "Contributing Nations", while Poland decided to upgrade its role. Turkey has liaison Officers for NATO relations, and even USA decided to send Officers to Strasbourg on 2009.

Observers await with impatience also the outcome of NATO's April 2009 Summit in Strasbourg in order to have a better view of EuroCorps' future.
