*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/(PARTLY UPDATED)/- "Eurofora" News was Targetted and Hit by a Series of Cyber and Other Aggressions and/or Harassments, (withOut Precedent in more than a Decade), which Culminated just after Publishing a NewsReport from the EU Heads of State/Governement Summit of March 2018 in Brussels, around EU Parliament's President Antonio Tajani's statements to "EF", and French President Emanuel Macron's imminent Visit to Strasbourg on April 2018, as well as "EF"s (1997-mainly 2007-2018) Project for EU Citizens - European Politicians Debates before Decisions affecting their Lives and/or Society at large, (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/tajaniandmacrontowardseuroforaprojectonapril2018.html).

Aggressions included Various kinds of Cyber-Attacks (cover or open), Communications' Disruption, even Harassment against Journalist's Family Home, damaging Manipulation and/or Slandering, (etc), and Provoked even an UnWarned and UnPrecedented, Forced Shut-Down of our European/Paneuropean News Website, for which several astonished "Eurofora" Readers Alerted us and others asap, (See attached Photos, etc).

=> One of the Consequences was to provoke an Exceptionally Long Delay and/or Disruption of our Regular original News' Publishing, (including Interviews, Statements, Investigations, Analysis, etc) on Topical EU/CoE/Human Rights/BioEthics and other Issues of General Interest to the Society, (particularly concerning the "Final", full versions of Draft-NewsReports earlier advanced to Subscribers/Donors, etc), to the Detriment of all our Readers (almost 27 Millions, from More than 30 Countries, in Europe and elsewhere in the World).

Particularly the above-mentioned "NewsReport" targetted by the Culmination of all those various but Synchronous Aggressions, (from Brussels' EU Summit/EU Parliament, Macron's Press Conference and imminent Visit, in relation also with "Eufofora"s +2007-2018 Project : Comp. Supra), is a Fact which Speaks from itself and Reveals at least a Core Part of the Culprits' Criminal and/or Political sly intentions, Both Against Freedom of Speech and Press/Medias' Freedom, most probably related also to Attempts for a gross Political Manipulation (aiming at both EU Decision-Makers and EU Citizens), that may Surface soon.

Police and Other various Stake-Holders have already Started to be Informed, parallel Investigations evolve, and Practical (including Technical as well as Legal) Measures are on-going, until the Situation returns back to Normal, and all those Responsible are Found and Punished asap.

We are currently doing our Best and outmost to Strive to catch-up with the productive Time slyly Destroyed by all those various Aggressions, and Ensure all our Readers that "Eurofora" will Resume asap. its Regular European/PanEuropean+ Original News Publishing, as it has already done during More than a Decade (+2007-2018), as a Key-Part of a Wider, Longer, and Continuous European Journalism practice of More than +24 Years, all in all (+9/1993-2018), with many Thousands of original News Publications.

Facing a 70% Abstention threat in 2009 Election, EU endorses EuroFora's idea for Citizens' debates on crucial EU decisions !

- Different views on "Europe's Future", should be debated among Citizens at June 2009 EU Elections, thanks to political Parties' "Manifestos", says EU Parliament's Report


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
A main idea, initiated and promoted by EuroFora's founders since 1997: the vital need to develop European Citizens' democratic right to actively participate in multilingual debates on EU decisions, is formally endorsed by the EU from 2009 !

The move is a key attempt to overcome "catastrophic" Polls which warn that only ...30% of Citizens are ready to vote in the forthcoming June 2009 EU Election !  This was revealed by EU Commission's vice-president, in charge of Communication policy, Margot Wallstrom, during a "hot" meeting of EU Parliament's Committee on Culture and Education, during the December 2008 Strasbourg session.

Wallstrom faced criticism, but also suggestions from various MEPs, naturally worried by Abstention threats which herself found even "worse" than in 1999 or 2004...

A Report on "Active Dialogue with Citizens",examined at the same time, presented some useful practical tips, on "facilitating Interviews"; etc., but also a  potentialy important call to "incorporate the conclusions of ...debates...into (EU) policies, and take into consideration the expectations that Citizens have of the EU when deciding". An amendment even implies that Citizens' participation in debates on EU decisions is a democratic "Right".

More importantly, it finds that  a Debate "on the Future of Europe", (as French President Nicolas Sarkozy has asked since 2007), would be a good idea " for the 2009 European parliamentary Elections", because "clarifying the political differences between the EU political parties would help citizens to identify themselves with, and choose between various concepts", for which "all parties (should) present their Manifesto".

A "Joint political declaration on Communicating Europe in Partnership", co-signed by "the European Parliament, Council and ... Commission", confirms that they "attach the utmost importance to improving communication on EU issues", by "enabling European citizens to exercise their right to participate in the democratic life of the Union, in which decisions are taken as openly as possible and as closely as possible to the citizens, observing the principles of pluralism, participation, openness and transparency".

This should "enable Citizens to exercise their right to express their views and to participate actively in the public Debate on European Union issues", while also "promoting the respect of multilingualism". In this regard, EU confirms its "wish to develop synergies with national, regional and local authorities as well as with representatives of Civil Society".

    It's since 1997 that a group of EuroFora's founders have officially presented a pioneer Project (then called "EIW", for "Europe in the World"), which aimed to develop Strasbourg's "Polyphonic music", by providing "Interactive information", on "main issues ... during the Decision-making process of European Organizations which engage in Transparent and Public Democratic Debates"

    This should be done, inter alia, by "exploring the potential of New Communication Tools (mainly Internet)", as well as classic-form debates, the 1997 EIW pioneer project's anounced in its "Synopsis". It was formally "accepted for evaluation" by EU Commission in Brussels in order to be examined for a grant in the framework of the "Research/Technology/Development (RTD) Programme in the field of Information Technologies", then called "ESPRIT", as a "Best Practice Pilot Project".

        But the vital, urgent Political need for EU to search new, efficient ways to reach the People and interact with European Citizens, was really felt in Brussels and elsewhere only after the unprecedented in History 1999 and 2004 Majority Abstention in EU Elections, followed by 3 "NO" in Referenda in France, the Netherlands and Ireland, on 2005 and 2008...
    In this New Political Landscape, we prepared a new, actualised and more developed version of our initial idea, in a simplified and more efficient form, thanks also to a large Experience accumulated during many years of EU/CoE/UNO Press work and Multi-lingual debates, with the New project "EuroFora" :

    On 2006 we presented in Public its main lines during Questions/Replies that we raised at two Press Conferences by EU Commission President, Jose Baroso, and mainly EU Commission's vice-President, in charge of Communication policy, Margot Wallstrom, together with EU Parliament's vice-president, Alejo Vidal-Quadras, in Strasbourg, (Videos available), and we reminded it at various brief contacts with Commissioner Wallstrom in 2007 and 2008.

    Meanwhile, a new Text was also presented for "EuroFora" Project mainly to certain Political and other personalities, at European, National or Regional/Local level, mainly in 2007, but also in 2008..

    Now, after the unexpected 2008 Irish "NO", and before the 2009 EU Elections, which are due to be of exceptionally crucial importance for Europe's Future, the moment has obviously come to launch that project, progressively, but in real practice.

    Whoever really cares for Europe and its Citizens is welcome to join, in one way or another. Only anti-European, anti-democratic, obscure or ignorant groups might oppose or attempt to "steal" and deviate the main idea.

    But European Citizens, incited by enlightened political leaders, are those who will finally write the real History.

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 ?
