*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- While the Controversy on a pro-Secession Referendum in Catalonia Region of Spain approaches the scheduled Day of October 1st, even if EU Parliament reportedly Decided Not to hold Any Public Debate on that issue during its forthcoming Plenary Session in Strasbourg Next Week, (from October 2 to 5), however, Secessionist Groups have Exploited even the recent Barbaric Tragedy of Deadly Islamist Terrorist Attacks at Barcelona in order to make Propaganda for their Plan to hold that Referendum, Denounced to "Eurofora" the Secretary General of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Party, and Top MEP, Antonio López-Istúriz, speaking some days earlier in EU Parliament here.


Replying to relevant "Eurofora"s Questions, (particularly whether the recent Deadly Islamist Terrorist Attacks provoked a Reaction of National Unity between all the Spanish People),

Lopez-Isturiz regretted the Fact that, Despite the presence even of Prime Minister Rajoy and of the King, together with the Victims' Families, and many People, at a huge Public Demonstration in Barcelona in honor of the Victims, nevertheless, some exploited even that sacred moment in order to Distribute f.ex. Leaflets with Publicity about that Controversial Secessionist Referendum attempt, (which has been Declared illegal by the Country's Constitutional Court).


- "At least, they should have Respected the Families of the Victims !", EPP's Secretary General and Top MEP López-Istúriz, pointed out.

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


On the Contrary, he abstained from any Comment on Anti-Terrorist Measures, as. f.ex., around the recent Barcelona ISIS' Deadly Attacks :

Mainstream Spanish Medias (as "ABC" etc), had, f.ex., claimed that, according to Securiy sources, the Catalan Regional Police would have Refused Access on the spot to the Spanish National Police, when an Explosion occured, initialy, at a House where ISIS Terrorists lived. So that the Catalan Regional Authorities erroneously thought that it was a purely Accidental Gas incident, without realizing, at first, that it was a Blunder in Handling Dozens of Bombs stocked there. In Consequence, an Anti-Terrorist Alert Delayed for Many Hours, Excluding the Timely Prevention of the Deadly Terrorist Attacks (otherwise avoidable) which Followed Later on, elsewhere in Barcelona, (See, f.ex. : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/barcelonaterrorrevealseuropeanpoliticalproblem.html).


López-Istúriz, preferred to Focus, rather, on the fact that, at any case, an Efficient Anti-Terrorist action Necessitated a Smooth Cooperation, between National and Regional Police Services, not only on how to ReAct to eventual Islamist Terrorist Attacks, but, most of all, already on how to Prevent them, particularly by a systematic and Timely Exchange of relevant Intelligence, in order to Save Lives of innocent Civilian People notoriously Targetted by ISIS' a.o. Deadly Terrorists.


24 People of 10 Nationalities were Killed, and more than 130 Victims from over 34 Countries were Wounded, by the series of Islamist Terrorist Violence at Barcelona, Catalonia's capital City, last August 2017 (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/barcelonaterrorrevealseuropeanpoliticalproblem.html).


The Number of Muslim Migrants in Catalonia had very Rapidly ... Exploded, Growing from 30.000 up to 700.000 in just Ten Years, Becoming, in certain Catalan Municipalities, Bigger than 20 % of the Local Population (!), as Spain's Biggest Newspaper "El Pais" (Center-Left) had Warned, already on 2015, i.e. precisely when the Latest Local Elections took place.


Among 98 Dangerous Mosques found, throughout All Spain, to Spread "the Most Radical" views of Islam, including "Salafism", etc., at least 50 were in Catalonia, (i.e. "More than the Half") !...


A radicalized Imam from a Catalan City near France, and with links to Belgium, appeared to be ISIS' Deadly Terrorist Gang's ring-Leader in Barcelona's 2017 Attacks. He was personaly linked to anOther, Islamist Terrorism Suspect, Mosque manager at Barcelona, who had been prosecuted, condemned and jailed, in the Past, in the context of a Wide Anti-Terrorism operation of the Spanish Police, but later released, after Catalan pro-Independence Lawyers attacked the Legality of that operation for Procedural reasons.


At least 2 among those local Lawyers were, soon afterwards, Elected in Catalonia as Deputy Mayor of Barcelona or MP, etc, while, almost at the same period, clear indications of Socio-Political Convergence of Interests between some Muslim Migrant Lobbies seeking Voting Rights and Catalan Independantists emerged (Comp. Supra).


Since those Elections of 2015, an atypical Left-oriented Regional Government seized ¨Power in Catalonia, pushing twice towards an "Indepencence" Referendum, which was also declared illegal repeatedly by the Spanish National Constitutional Court. After those pro-Independence Catalan region politicians declared also their intention to make Secession from Spain on 2017, the National Government at Madrid took Measures to try to prevent that Vote, scheduled for Sunday, October 1st, among rising tensions, but also alleged last-minute attempts to find a Peaceful Compromise, in one way or another.


The now governing pro-Independence Catalan politicians, according to International mainstream Medias, have not yet a Majority of the regional population with them, but acceeded since 2015 in office mainly because of the Regional Electoral System which gives priority to Rural areas. A First Referendum of 2015 was won by them with a Weak Participation of People, less than normal. But now, on 2017, it's the First Time that such an attempt is followed also by a declared intention to Kick-Start a Fast-track process towards Secession, resulting in greater tension now, unless a timely compromise is found peacefully, de jure or de facto.

Europe brings Development dynamics at Global Crisis' Summit debates

eudevdays_400



    Thanks also to EU Parliament Plenary's Strasbourg gathering, EU, during the French EU Presidency, managed to integrate the Development issues at Top Debates on the World Summit against the Economic Crisis  :

    For the 1st time, it's at the same moment with the Wahington G-20 Summit that EU Commissioner Louis Michel co-organizes here with the French EU Presidency parallel mega-events for the "European Development Days", starting from this Week-End and concluding at the eve of a landmark debate in EU Parliament, next Tuesday, on the outcome and follow-up of the Wash.DC Summit.

    EU and its Member Countries are the biggest donor for UNO's Millenium Development goals, with 56%, but the 27 are currently struggling to develop a collective leadership in Economic and social matters, that the 15 of EuroGroup (together with the UK and other countries interested to be usefully associated) are starting to spearhead, after the initial success of the 1st EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, of October 12 in Paris, according to a New Repport by MEPs Pervench Beres and Werner Langen on the 10 Years of EuroZone (1999-2009) debated Monday and voted on Tuesday.

    EU, CoE and World personalities will interact here with Heads of State or Government from Tanzania (African Union chair), Burkina Faso (CEDEAO + UEMOA chair), Zimbabwe (MDC chair), Madagascar, Haiti, Mali, Benin, etc, and some 3000 participants from the Economy, Civil Society, Media, Experts, etc, while the City of Strasbourg adds various related Citizen-events.

    Opened by French Secretary of State Alain Joyandet on November 15, and followed by a video-contact with EU Commission President Jose Baroso on the Washington Summit Sunday, the EDD are concluded by Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner on Monday, while their main concerns cannot be ignored in the Debate that EU Parliament will hold on Tuesday, (followed by a Resolution on Wednesday), jointly on the G-20 Washington Summit and on EU Commission's work program for 2009.

    A practical opportunity for EU to reflect where it's better to spend EU Citizens' money...

    The move is prolonged in several Paris' meetings of EU chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy with African Heads of State leading regional Organizations, as from Tanzania (A.U. Chair), Burkina Faso (chair of Economic African organizations), Togo, etc, (in parallel with a Ministerial EU - African Union conference in Ethiopia, followed by a visit to Tchad), logically concluded by a meeting with Robert Zoellic President of the World Bank.

    Many have already warned that an eventual aggravation of Development's Gap accross the World might become much more dangerous to Global Economy, Security, Values and Quality of Life, than Global Warming and/or other, even more serious challenges...

    Will they find an innovative and voluntarist way to really deal with the Development Gap, which might also contribute to help face the Economic Crisis ?

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 ?
