*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- The EU Council seems Favorable to the Authorisation of More and Different Vaccines, if they meet the required Conditions, in order to Boost EU Citizens' Vaccinations against the Virus, according to what Replied to a relevant "Eurofora"'s Question a Top EU Official, in a Video-Press Briefing with Brussels, at the Eve of an important EU Summit of Heads of State/Government there, on 24-25 June 2021.

The EU Summit is due to Discuss and Decide on Europe's Anti-Virus' Policy and Recovery Issues, as the 1st specialized Topic of that High-Levell meeting, Tomorrow Afternoon, around 4 p.m. Before that, at about 1 p.m., the Heads of State/Government are due to Meet and Discuss with UNO's Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, on "Global Challenges", (which eventualy, might Include also the Pandemic.

 - "Eurofora" had explained that the Reason for which we Raised that Question, was mainly in order to Help the Vaccination Succeed, and, inter alia, also to Aleviate some Fears or reserves Notoriously expressed by Various People in Europe and/or elsewhere in the World. In this regard, Already, f.ex., even the German Minister of Health, Jens Spahn, (CDU), has Recently been reported as Advising to Authorize, at least, 2 or 3 More Vaccines, f.ex. of a more Classical Technology, in order to Bypass the Reserves of some.

Meanwhile, it's well Known that, in Some Countries and/or Sectors of the Society, Currently, there are, still, More People who Continue to Hesitate, for Various Reasons, than Elsewhere, (as, f.ex., in France, sometimes, even the Members of a Medical Staff, etc).

It's also true that, Until Now, one of the Problems seems to be also the Fact that, among the Few (4) Vaccines already Authorized by the EU, one has been Notoriously almost Discreditated ("Astrazeneka"), another seems Less Efficient for all, ("Johnson"), and the 2 Others (the Turkish "BNT/Pfizer" and the Armenian's "Moderna"), adopted a Novel, Not Yet well Known, m.RNA Technology, wbile there is Not even 1 "Classical" Vaccine... On the Contrary, f.ex., China has Recently Published Official Health Authorities' Article claiming that they would, Already, have, at least Three (3) "Classic" Vaccines Authorized and used against this Virus !

Last, but not least, Most People doN't even Know, clearly and timely enough, How Many and Which Vaccines might, eventualy, be available, throughout the whole World. F.ex. Russians recently Claimed to have "3" Vaccines Ready, But, in fact,Only One (1) is really Known by Most People... The "WHO", at nearby Geneva, made some Efforts, Recently, to Better Inform on the Existing Vaccines, among the Various Countries, Authorized or Not Yet, But such Data are Not Always Complete, Neither so Easy to Access, in real Practice, yet, even if they have the merit to exist...

=> In such Circumstances, the Position taken by the above-mentioned Senior Official of the EU Council, in Reply to that "Eurofora"s Question, (speaking Under Condition of Anonymity), appeared, a priori, Adamant :

     - "On the Different Vaccines, that are, Possibly, to be Validated :

- "That is for EMA to Decide !", (i.e., up to EU's Independent Experts' relevant body).

- "As Soon as We (EU's Political Authorities) have a Positive Decision by the EMA, the Vaccine Will bave Access at the Market", he Vowed.

=> "I Understand that, When there is a Discussion into the Rolling Review, that they Need outstanding Conditions, that are Not Validated, that means that the (required) Conditions are Not Met !".

>>> - Simply Because "there canNot be Any Other Answer"..., he Firmly Stressed.

I.e., in Other Words, to put it in a Nutshell, the Top Official of EU Council Honestly Believes that, as a matter of Principle, Any efficient Vaccine which really Meets the relevant Conditions, Should, Indeed, be Soon Authorized by the competent EU Technical Services, and Made Available to EU Citizens.

"Eurofora" can't but Congratulate the EU Council for such a Crystal-Clear Position, as far as Principles are concerned.

Therefore, we can't but Hope that this will, Indeed, be Done, Also in Real Practice, (i.e. as far as those "Independent Experts", linked mainly to EU Commission, are concrned : Comp. Supra), asap !

Particularly when there are several Human Lives at Stake...

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 ?
