*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- European Democracy reportedly being the Most Popular Issue in EU's Conference on Europe's Future, normaly, it Should Apply also to Citizens' Panels, vis a vis the CoFoE's Plenary.

ep_cfe_demopanel_2__ambassadors_election__26.9.3021_eurofora_400 

This may Concern, particularly, the Last Decision of Democracy Panels' first Session, on Sunday, which notoriously is the Election of 20 so-called "Ambassadors" due to Speak at the Conference's Plenary, with Representatives of Member States, EU Commission, or EU Parliament's, etc., afterwards, until Final Proposals are adopted for EU's Reforms from 2022.

In this regard, a Young Bulgarian, just Elected Today as "Ambassador" of this Important Panel on EU Democracy, introduced to "Eurofora" by a kind Lady, Participant Citizen from Germany, appeared to have Both a Good Idea, and a quite Brave Character...

 - Indeed, Alexander Milisov, New "Ambassador" to CoFoE's Plenary for Democracy Issues, speaking to "Eurofora", appeared Adamant :

- "I Feel the Need to Represent the Views of  Not Only Some, But of All the European People !" on Democracy, he Firmly Told us, from the Outset, looking Serious enough.

- "What do you mean by "All the People" ?", "Eurofora" Asked, for Clarification.

- "First for the Participants in the Conference, and then, All the People Outside of the Panel" too, Alexander clearly Explained.  

"Eurofora" Congratulated Milisov, and Encouraged him, inter alia, Also to use a Website in order to Collect European People's relevant Wishes, Ideas and Proposals through the Internet.

Naturaly, the Conference on Europe's Future Web Platform appeared, a priori, as the Most Appropriate Instrument for that purpose, But one may Always do Better than that,... (particularly with a little Help from some Friends).

>>> Indeed, how could a real European  "Democracy" Panel represent Only some Views of a Tiny Minority of Less than 200 Individuals, taken Radomly, if it Droped to a Waste-Basket the Legitimate Aspirations comming among some 500 Millions of EU Citizens ?

Already, several EU Agents dealing with the Conference on Europe's Future, and/or "Moderators" on the Conclusions of its Panels, have repeatedly Incited Citizens, Even Panels' Members, to at least Use the CoFoE's Web "Platfom" in order to Register and Promote their Ideas for the Recommendations to make, from EU Citizens' side, to the CoFoE's Plenary, later-on.

>>> But, it's also a Fact that, at least Until Now, the First so-called "Interim Reports" made by some Unknown to the People, and Apparently, sometimes Irresponsible Individuals, due to Resume the Conference's Web Platform's expressed Ideas and Projects, have, Curiously and Blantantly Failed into giving a Real and Complete, Overall Picture of, at least, the Most Important, Serious, Popular, and/or Interesting and Original relevant Proposals made and Published there by European People !

F.ex., among others, in that 1st such, so-called "Report", made on August and Unveiled Earlier this September 2021, about Participatory EU "Democracy" Ideas and Proposals, it doesN't do Anything else than, Merely, to Repeatedly "Copy and Paste" Links to Only a Few, Hasty, Superficial, and quasi-Identical Copies or Variants of the Already Pre-Existing Idea of "Citizens' Initiatives", (Notoriously created by EU's Lisbon Treaty Since 2007-2010),

WithOut Even Mentioning, on the Contrary, at least a Brand New Idea and Original Proposal, Recently (the very Day of the 1st CoFoE's Plenary in Strasbourg) Published at the Conference's Web Platform, (as well as Elsewhere), by "Eurofora"'s co-Founder, and Already "Followed" by More than ...750 Registered People, some Days Ago, which is Based on Decades of Serious Legal, Political, and Journalistic Work, in great parts Checked and Validated at French University Research levels, (DEA/Master and/or PhD Thesis Research, Officialy proposed for Awards, etc), as well as Endorsed by a Strasbourg EuroMetropole's 2 Days-long Popular Conference on 2019, and Even Topicaly Backed, in its Main Concepts, by Both EU and CoE's latest Resolutions, including until this Last June and July 2021...

=> See, f.ex., the Proposal for "Dialogue between Citizens and Politicians Before Decisions Affecting their Lives and/or Society at large", at : https://futureu.europa.eu/processes/Democracy/f/6/proposals/32770, etc.

>>> Why isN't such an Original EU Citizen's Proposal on European Democracy, already Published at the Conference's Official Platform, and Followed by more than 750 Registered People recently, at least one Among those Simply Cited in CoFoE's "Interim Report", But, on the Contrary, is Still kept practicaly "Hidden" from Interested People's Eyes and Minds, (while, on the Contrary, a Lot of Other, Superficial, Hasty and Repetitive, Banal Pseudo-"Ideas" only Copying one another, are Scandalously  Spotted and Re-Published by that Controversial Pseudo-"Report" ?

-  Such Blatant and Scandalous Discriminations and/or Grave Blunders, Obviously, consideably Show the Pertinence and the Vital Need of Europe for Ideas and Practice as those just Expressed by Young EU Democracy Citizens Panel's "Ambassador" Alexander Milisov, (Comp. Supra) !

  Ten Years of ECHR : 1998 - 2008 show need of Revival in 2009-2010 coinciding with 2009 EU Election
   

A threefold, coordinated move by new Top French Political actors in the 2009 EU Parliament Elections, expressed in Strasbourg a will to boost Europe's Political dimension close to Citizens' concerns, going from protection of Economy to defence of Human Rights.    

The move met an exceptional ECHR's call for a "revival" of Human Rights' protection mechanism', in a Mega-Conference, early 2010.   

Obviously focusing on June 2009 Elections to EU Parliament, it involved from the outset the recently nominated "dual" Head of French Governing Party (UMP)  Michel BARNIER and Rachida DATI :

imag0282_400

     - "As President Sarkozy has clearly said, we (France) are in favor of a Strong, Sovereign and Independent, Political Europe, which protects its Citizens, and not for a large Super-Market, nor for a Europe under influence",

    "This goes for everything, including Energy", added to "EuroFora" the experienced former EU Commissioner, Minister of Foreign affairs, currently of Agriculture and Sarkozy's new pick as Leader of the Governing party UMP to EU 2009 Election, Michel BARNIER                                              .                             

  - Human Rights are important because they are at the Heart of the Political Europe that we aspire for : I.e. a Europe able to act and protect its Citizens, stressed also the New French Minister for European affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE, while meeting Strasbourg's Journalists at his first visit to the CoE.   

imag0313_400_01 

This is one of the main interests for CoE, which is also a natural place for cooperation between EU countries and Russia or Turkey, which was recently helpful at the Middle East crisis, he added.

The move gained momentum with French Minister of Justice, Rachida Dati's main observations at ECHR's 5Oth Anniversary :   

- "While we are seeking Europe's Borders and Identity, you (ECHR) remind us also of its Values", Human Rights, Dati noted.   

Citizens seek more and more often ECHR's help, and the tempo accelerates, Europa awaits a symbol, while national legal orders are not freezed   

And she expressed "support" to ECHR President Jean-Paul Costa's call to satisfy the vital need to revigorate the PanEuropean Court by deciding big changes at a High-Level Conference open to a large audience, a kind of "Etats Generaux" of Human Rights, at the beginning of 2010.

It's not so much the recently growing number of applications for Russia or Ukraine etc, which seems to be Costa's main concern : In fact, the cases declared "admissible" are much fewer...    

But rather the persistent violations of Human Rights, sometimes very grave (ie. murders, torture, abritrary deprivation of liberty, oppression of freedom of speech, destructions of homes/properties, etc), despite numerous, repeated condemnations by ECHR. So that CoE's Ministers, due to "supervise execution" of ECHR's judgements, are overloaded.   

F.ex. most Media noted that Turkey still remains, even in 2008, the 1st among 47 CoE member States in the number of condemnations by ECHR :  257, compared to 233 for Russia, with a population more than the double..    

The problem is that it's not the 1st time at all : During all the last Decade 1998-2008, Turkey was condemned by ECHR much more than any other State, and for particularly grave violations :   

- 1.652 condemnations, compared to 605 for Russia, 548 for Poland, 494 for France, 476 for Ukraine, etc.   

Italy's second place with 1.394 condemnations is a misleading false appearance : In fact, most of them (999) concern mere "procedural delays" in national courts. Same for France.   

On the contrary, Turkey was condemned 180 times for Killings, 192 times for Torture or Inhuman/Degrading treatments, 340 times for arbitrary deprivation of Liberty, 528 times for "Unfair trial", and 169 times for oppression of Freedom of speech, (etc). And the latest, 2008 numbers, indicate no change in this trend, (See supra).   

The current Spanish CoE Presidency (November 2008 - May 2009) has made of the implementation of ECHR's judgements its 1st Priority.   

ECHR's President, Jean-Paul Costa, stressed in its 2009 Annual Press Conference, CoE Member States' obligation to implement the judgements, according to Article 46 of the European Convention on Human Rights.   

Moreover, if CoE's Committee of Ministers delays to ensure implementation, then, the repetition of violations in similar cases provokes a multiplication of complaints tabled to the Court, which overload the mecanism for the protection of Human Rights, denounced Costa.          

A series of Debates on "the situation of Human Rights in Europe", focusing on the "need to fight against Impunity" of perpetrators of grave crimes, is  currently prepared by CoE's Parliamentary Assembly for the session of June 2009.  

The final Timing comes shortly AFTER the EU Elections, but the main Reports should have been adopted before.

Meanwhile, French President Sarkozy and German Chancelor Merkel's recent call "for a Political Europe" in 2009 EU Elections (See earlier "correspondence from Paris, Elysee Palace), seems more and more endorsed also by other EU Countries' Top MEPs :

Thus, f.ex., EU Parliament's 1st vice-President, Greek MEP Mrs Rodi KRATSA, speaking to "EuroFora", agreed that 2009 EU Election would be a "naturally good" opportunity to debate what really interests EU Citizens : "The Future of a Political Europe, able to face the Economic Crisis, with a Culture and identity which attracts the People"
