*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- With an Official Call on Belarus, launched Today from Strasbourg, CoE's Leadership urged for "Respectful Dialogue" , among the Goverment and Civil Society, including Dissidents, while, Paradoxically, this Same Day, an alleged Leader of Most Opponents to Belarusian long-time President Lukashenko, Tikhanofskaya, speaking from Abroad, Explicitly launched an "Ultimatum", with an "Order" for the Head of State to "Resign" in "13 Days", while Also, reportedly, Asking from Everyone, including the Country's Law and Order Agents, to "Declare in Public" that they "doN"t Back the Regime", Threatening them that, Otherwise, they would be considered and treated as "Accomplices to (State) Terrorism" !

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

 - In a "Joint Statement" on Belarus, the Chairman of CoE's Highest Political body, that of its Committee of Ministers, Greek Minister for European affairs, Miltiadis Varvitsiotis, Together with CoE Parliamentary Assembly's President, Rik Daems from Belgium, and CoE's Secretary General, Marija Peicinovic-Buric, a former vice-Prime Minister from Coatia, "Condemn(ing), in the Strongest possible terms, Any further use of Violence", "Firmly recall(ed)", "in particular", "that there is a Need to Start Genuine and Respectful Dialogue, with the Representatives of Civil Society, in view of the Constitutional Reform, long-Awaited by the Whole Country", "with the Participation of All, Including those who Oppose the Authorities", offering CoE's eventual "Help" on the "Way to Genuine Reforms", as they said that they were "Stand(ing) Ready" to do asap.

Alexander Lukashenko, re-Elected as President of Belarusia since the 1990ies, who was Officially attributed a Landmark Win also on the Latest, August 2020 Elections, with more than 80% of the Votes, against Only a little-bit over 10% for Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, (who soon Fled Abroad, at the Neighbouring Baltic State of Lithuania), has reportedly Initiated, Recently, a New, due to be Transparent, Constitutional Reform process, allegedly Open to Any Citizens' Participation, as well as to Public Dialogue, also with the Country's Authorities, f.ex. on Courts, Law and Order staff, etc, including even on the "Hot" Issue of Eventual New Elections in the foreseable Future, and, (while apparently Trying, at least Initialy, to Drop any irregular "Collective" as such, consisting of Opponents who Triggered 2 Months-long recuring Public Demonstrations at Minsk and Other Cities, sometimes provoking troubles and/or threatening worse (See Infra). Nevertheless, Lukashenko, these Days, went as far as to Even Visit, Personaly, in Prison, some among those considered to be the regime's most Harsh Opponents, (as, f.ex., Babariko, a former Banker accused of Fraud, but allegedly Popular would-be Candidate to the Latest Presidential Election, who reportedly appeared Glad after that meeting, while one of his closest Assistants was immediately Freed and spoke on TV, precisely, about Dialogue with the Government, etc). The move was Backed also by Russia, which reportedly incited also to associate even more Dissidents in such Debates, But wasn't of the likes of an alleged "Hard" Core, of irreductible Opponents, pursuing Other Agendas...

In that Context, Svetlana's Tikhonovskaya's reported Publication, Today, at the "Telegram" Web Network, often used by Dissidents, looks Surprizing, because it, apparently, pursues a Different Aime from that Officially adopted by the CoE, and, most of all, with very Harsh Methods, absolutely Contradicting the "Respectful Dialogue" arbored by the CoE (Comp. Supra) :

- Indeed, Tikhanovskaya reportedly Launched, Today, an Explicit ..."Ultimatum" (sic !) against the Belarusian Government, Boasting that the Opposition would be "More Powerful than the Regime", and Giving the "Order" for President Lukashenko to Immediately "Resign", in a Tight "execution Deadline" of "13 Days" Only (sic !), Blackmailing with Threats that, Otherwise, After "October 25", She will Trigger a "General Strike, in All Enterprises", and "Block All Roads" (re-sic !!), "Stop Selling to Public Entities", with "Everybody going ... to the Streets", (etc), so that the whole Country would "Paralyse" !

+ Moreover, in the Meantime, she Asks from All those Working for the Government and/or the Law and Order Services, to "Declare, in Public, that he Stops Backing the Regime" of the Country, Because, Otherwise, "WhoEver has Not Yet Decided to Pass on the Side" of her Opposition, will be Considered as ..."Accomplice to Terrorism" (sic !), since she Dismissed the Belarusian Government as mere "State Terrorism"..., (Obviously Abusing, perhaps withOut Knowing it, in Fact, of Similar Oppressive Methods to Notoriously Anti-Democratic Powers, as, f.ex., that of Turkey, whose so-called "Anti-Terrorism" Legislation, Abusively Slanders as alleged "Terrorist", and Hits with Harsh Measures, practicaly Any Critical Dissident Thinking Differently)...

=> So Brutal Personal Threats, at Nowadays' Context in Belarus, Inevitably Become, irresponsibly, Very Dangerous, against Not Only All those Civil Servants and/or Law and Order-Keeping Agents, so Massively Threatened, But ...Even to the Detriment of their entire Families, Old People, Wives and Children included, since Mrs Tikhonovskaya's Opposition Notoriously has, Recently, Launched Many Repeated Operations of Totaly and Shamelessly Violating any "Personal Data" Protection, by Systematicaly Hanting and Spying on Any Information Targeting Civil Servants and/or Law and Order Agents' Individual Person and Family, (including, Particularly, Even ...Photos of their Private Life with their Wife and Children, as those "Dissidents" own Propaganda Reveals, when they Boast at the Internet of their "Exploits"), so that, When, Afterwards, those Abusive "Opposition" Fractions, Massively Unleash, Scandalouslly ... Publishing at the World Wide Web, their Victims' Name, Private/Family Adress and Phones, etc., Together with their Elders, Wife, even Children, etc. Names, Photos, Whereabouts, Occupations, Jobs or Schools, etc, to the point that Many, among those Unfortunate People, have reportedly, Been Already Targetted, Bullied, Insulted, Slandered, and Brutaly Threatened by Various Anonymous Thugs, (f.ex. to be Agressed at the Street, Hit, Raped, etc), with UnPredictable Consequences..., as Many Victims' Testimonies, Various Medias, Public Services, and Even Web Networks (reportedly Trying to Erase from the Internet such Massive Aggressions, Published by Lots of Thousands !), have Recently Denounced, Revealing a Real daily "Terror", (Sometimes, even against the Wrong Persons, and, at any case, Including Many Innocent and Fragile Victims : Comp. Supra)...

+ Such Sly and Odious Threats, also Explain and Show the Double, Manifold Gravity, in Fact, of those Recent Brutal Aggressions (sometimes of Even 2, 3, 4 or 5 Cowards Attacking just 1 Person Simultaneously, as Various Videos at the Internet Reveal), Seeking to ...Destroy the Personal Protection Face "Masks", SafeGuarding against Infections by the Deadly Virus, several Law and Order Agents, taken as Targets by Numerous Relentless so-called "Demonstrators" (See http://www.eurofora.net/forum/index.php/topic,955.msg1274.html#msg1274, etc) :

Indeed, as certain Technical Videos Shamelesly Reveal, it's enough to just Unveal even a Small Part of a Human Head, in order to Find, via some Sophisticated I.A. Softwares, (f.ex. found at some Technocratic Hubs as USA's "Socialist" California, etc), in just a Few Seconds, the Personal Identity of a Targeted Victim, Together with that of his Family, including Elders, Wife, Children, their Names, Adresses, Occupations, Schools, Photos, etc)...

=> So that, in Fact, the Real "Big Brother" of Orwell's "1984" World Famous "Hell", Risks to be Hidding, Nowadays, (as the Concrete Example of Belarus just Revealed), No more inside Any National State, But, rather, and much More Dangerously, among some, (Only Apparently "Anodynous"), Civil Society informal Secret Global Networks.

Recent developments proved that Europe can suceed to overcome challenges by aiming at great objectives, and this is needed also in 2009, said EU chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

    - "It's in the name of Great Ideas, Projects, Ambition and Ideals, that EU can overcome" challenges, stressed Sarkozy at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, in conclusion of a dense 7 months EU Chairmanship. "It's even easier for Europe to have Great projects, able to overcome national egoism, instead of limiting itself only to small projects" (unable to do alike), he observed.     

- "Europe must remain Ambitious and understand that the World needs her to take Decisions". "The World needs a Strong Europe", which "thinks on its own, has convictions, its own responses, its imagination" : "A Europe which does not limit itself into following" others, (as it did in the Past, when it followed USA, f.ex. on Bosnia). On the contrary, "Europe should undertake its own responsibilities", he said, after a series of succes in stopping the War between Russia and Georgia, and organizing the 1st EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which incited the Washington DC G-20 Summit to extend similar decisions World-wide.  


    - "When you sweep it all under the carpet, prepare yourself for hard tomorrows", he warned. "What hinders decisions is the lack of Courage and Will, the fading away of Ideals", he stressed before EU Parliament's 2008 debate on Human Rights and Sakharov prize on Freedom of thought attributed by MEPs to Chinese cyber-dissident Hu Jia, followed by an EU - Turkey meeting on Friday.

    - "I don't abandon my convictions" and "I will take initiatives" on EU level also in 2009, Sarkozy announced later. "France will not stop having convictions and taking initiatives" on Europe. + "It's an Error to wish to pass over the Heads of those who are elected in their Countries" : "It's an integrism I always fought against"', he warned.
---------------------
French EU Presidency faced 4 unexpected Crisis :

- An institutional crisis, with the Irish "No" to EU Lisbon Treaty, just before it started. A geopolitical crisis, wth the threat of War between Russia and Georgia risking to throw Europe back to Cold-war divisions, on August. A World-wide Financial and Economic crisis, arriving at a bad moment before crucial 2009 EU elections. And even a Strasbourg's mini-crisis, with EU Parliament's roof curiously falling down, from unknown reasons, in a brand new building on August, provoking an unprecedented transfert of the 2 September Plenary Sessions...

But it wasn't enough to stop Sarkozy ! On the contrary, it stimulated him...
---------------------------------------

- "The better way to deal with the recent problems of EU institutions (as the "3 NO" by France, the Netherlands and Ireland) is to take them as a "Test" in order to find solutions closer to Citizens' concerns", said later in Strasbourg Sarkozy's new choice as Ministe for EU affairs, Bruno Le Maire.

- On the Institutional front, Sarkozy gave Time to the Irish to think about it, and stroke on December a deal including a New Referendum after the June 2009 EU Elections, in exchange of a promise to keep the rule of "one EU Commissioner for each EU Member Country", and some opt-outs on Defence and Fiscal EU policies, Abortion, etc. If the Irish get a "Yes" Majority, then the institutional package could be completed in 2010 or 2011 on the occasion of Croatia's probable EU accession.

He was accused in Strasbourg to upgrade EU Council and downgrade EU Commision, but he replied that "strong Political initiatives by EU Council reinforce also the more technical role of EU Commission, under the political-technical leadership of its President", all 3 "working together with EU Parliament".


- But, meanwhile, Sarkozy energetically spearheaded an Historic 1st Summit of EuroZone's 15 Heads of State and Government at EU's core, exceptionally enlarged to a partial participation of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, on October 12 in Paris' Elysee palace, which started to tackle succesfully the growing world Financial crisis.

    It also paved the way for its endorsement by a subsequent Brussels' 27 EU Member States' gathering, before it all come to Washington's G-20 Summit. And "Europe was united, it asked for the 1st G-20 Summit, and it will also organise the next G-20 Summit on April in London", he observed.   

 But a Conference with EU, Russia, African and other Developing Countries, hosted in Strasbourg shortly after Washington G-20 Summit by the French EU Presidency, took a Resolution asking to enlarge participation to Global Economic Governance. Many found, indeed, illogic and unacceptable that f.ex. states as Turkey were given a seat at G-20 level, while all African Countries, and even the African Union itself, representing the greatest Continent on Earth, were excluded...


    Meanwhile, even USA''s "Paulson No 3" Plan, was, in fact, inspired by Europe's No 1 Plan", Sarkozy observed, largelly applauded by MEPs.

    And "Europe showed Solidarity" by mobilizing some 22 Billion credit for Hungary, 1,7 billion for Ukraine, as we do nowadays for Baltic States, etc., he added.

    The move on Economy was extended on December by an EU stimulus' plan totalling some 200 billion Euros, including 5 Billions released by EU Commission for big Projects, as well as various parallel National plans for Economic revival, (fex. 26 billions in France alone). They might appear limited, compared to USA President-elect Obama's reported plan to boost the American economy with 800 billion $, but at least succeded to overcome Europe's divisions for the first time on Economic governance, opening new horizons.

- The French President stressed even harder the unique role of an active EU Council's chairmanship, when he moved swiftly and efficiently, at the beginning of August, to succesfully stop War between Russia and Georgia, at the last minute, which threatened to bring Europe back to Cold War division.

"We (EU) also wanted to avoid a situation like in Bosnia, in the Past, when EU was absent, so that our American friends took their responsibilitues, and EU only followed", despite the fact that the conflict took place in Europe. Now, it was the EU who took its responsibilities".

A roadmap towards a new PanEuropean Security policy, before which all unilateral moves to place new Missiles (from USA or Russia) would be freezed, was proposed by Sarkozy after a meeting with Russian president Medvedev, at the eve of Washington DC's G-20 Summit.

Ukraine's "European" character was stressed at a Sarkozy - Jushenko Summit, September in Paris, while EU adopted on December an "Eastern policy", in which, "I'm convinced that our (EU's) future is to find with our Neighbours the conditions for Economic Development. Peace and Security, by explaining them that.. they must respect (Human Rights') Values, and adopt behaviors different from the Past", explained Sarkozy in Strasbourg.

Meanwhile, the "Union for the Mediterranean" was created, since July's Summit if 45 Heads of State and Government in Paris, as "an organisation for a permanent Dialogue, that we need", mainly in order to tackle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, by bringing together, for the 1st time, Israelis and Arabs, where "Europe must be present, in order to avoid a frontal clash".

- "If Europe doesn't take its part for Peace in the Middle-East, nobody else will do that in our place", Sarkozy stressed.
-----------------------
    Meanwhile, other EU Agreements were brokered during the French EU Presidency on Immigration, (fex. common Asylum rules, etc), and Climat- Energy :

    - On Climat-Energy, the 2007 German EU Presidency had fixed a triple 20% aim for 2020 (20% renewable Energies, 20% reduction of CO2 emmission, 20% energy efficience/economies), and the 2008 French EU Presidecny realized that, making the necessary compromises in order to modernize EU's industry, but without throwing some former Central-Eastern European Countries into abrupt Economic break down risking "social explosion".

    - Defence-Security EU policy was mainly postponed for April 2009, since both German chancellor Merkel and French president Sarkozy want to strike a deal with the new American president Obama in Strasbourg's NATO Summit.

    However, with all these 4 unexpected Crisis diverting attention to other urgencies, People wil wonder now, what happened to the famous deal proposed by freshly-elected French President Sarkozy on Turkey's controversial EU bid, back on August 2007, to continue EU - Turkey negotiations, but on the double condition that core chapters, intrinsequally linked with EU Membership, will be excluded, and that a collective Reflexion and Debate on Europe's future would start before the end of 2008.

    It was meant to reply to the crucial question : What kind of Europe do we want in 10 or 20 Years from now : A large Market, or a Political Europe, with a popular identity ? In Sarkozy's thinking, presented in his 2 landmark speeches on Europe in Strasbourg, shortly before and after the 2007 Elections, (on February and July 2007), Turkey's controversial EU bid would be incompatible with the second choice.

    It's true that EU Commision's Chairman, Jose Barroso, (who had notoriously declared, as former Portuguese Prime Minister, that he found "nonsense" the idea that Europe might become equal to the US), had repeatedly tried to avoid that Sarkozy's criticism on Turkey might start winning a larger audience in Europe, preferring a discrete "wismens' committee" work. And that most of the personalities later chosen in order to participate in a Committee on Europe's Future, are too much linked with Socialist parties and/or American policies, to be really critical of USA's notorious wish to impose Turkey to the EU, as Sarkozy had noted himself since March 2007..

     - "It's on EU Council's presidency to take political initiatives. EU Commission has other competences", stressed Sarkozy. The "European Ideal" is to "build Europe with the States, not against them". "Ask Europeans to chose between their countries and Europe won't work. You don't choose between your two parents : We must add them together".

    "France and Germany have an Historic Duty to work together, precisely because of what happened to the Past. We have to work hand by hand. We cannot be separated.It goes beyond me and Mrs Merkel today, Mr Schroeder and Mr. Chirac yesterday. It's not a choice, it's a duty to Europe and to the World".  "We need Germany, as Germany needs Europe". Compromise is inevitable, here as everywhere, and each one made some steps towards eachother's positions.

    But "it's true that Mrs Merkel didn't chose her Socialist partners, while I chose mine", Sarkozy said, in an indirect hint that the Socialist Minister of Finance in Germany might be a cause of minor past disagreements in Economy, which were overcome in recent negotiations.

    "We (France and Germany) have particular duties in Europe", but "in a Europe of 27 Member States, it's not enough for France and Germany to agree between them.

    "I always thought that Great Britain has a special role to play in Europe. ... Now, everybody "saw what it cost payed the UK for having been too exclusively open towards the US (and) Financial services. Europe needs the UK, but also the UK needs Europe" :- "We were able to face the hardest moment of the Financial crisis because the UK clearly chose Europe", stressed Sarkozy, reminding Gordon Brown's exceptional participation to the Historic 1st Heads of State/Government Summit of EuroZone, October 12 in Paris (See EuroFora's Reportage from Elysee Palace then).

     - "Some look at Europe with old glasses aged 30 years ago. While we must look at her in relation to what it will be in 30 years" in the Future, Sarkozy concluded.

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 ?
