     *Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/-
In fact, the 1st Plenary of EU's landmark Conference on Europe's Future, due to Start Tomorrow in Strasbourg, in scheduled to be withOut the Citizens who will take a Key Active Part in that Novel Process, EU Parliament's Head Spokesman, and Director of Communications, Jaume Duch-Guillot, told "Eurofora", while a Top Representative of engaged NGO "Union of European Federalists" immediately Reacted (See Infra).

- "What's really New in that Conference is (EU) Citizens' Participation. While negociations between Politicians is a Familiar event". So, it's not a surprise that, f.ex., "even after an interesting Press Conference of Verhofstadt (EU Parliament's Head Negociator) in Brussels last Wednesday, we didN't see enough Media Publications...", he regretted."So, they (MEPs) didN't yet ask to prepare Any Press Conference for this Plenary" in Strasbourg on Saturday.

=> Because, "in fact, all are Waiting for those (EU) Citizens with which the Conference's proposals and negociations will take place : That's going to be the Real News, and I Expect, from that moment, a Growing Media Interest", the Experienced EU Parliament's Top Official on Communication and Head Press Spokesman told "Eurofora".

    - Indeed, for the Time being, it's just "the Portuguese (rotating) EU Presidency who will Bring some Citizens" in Strasbourg's 1st Plenary, But, for the rest, it's an Independent Experts' Company which is currently on the process of Searching, according to Stict and Complex Criteria, to Find those 108 Citizens from the EU's Group who would be Representative to the Europêan Population's various Characteristics.

    => So that Their Names will be Known only "on July", and "the 1st Plenary" where they could participate might be somewhere "Between the End of September and October" 2021, Because "at First, they Need to Work in the Panels" of that Conference, which are due "to Prepare the Proposals" and relevant work "Before the (Next) Plenary".

    + In Consequence, (EU) Citizens' Participation in the Conference's Plenaries are expected to go on from October (2021) up to around March or April (2022), When the real Political Negociations with EU Parliament, etc. could Start", and, "then, we (MEPs) are going to Enter in the Substance" for the Final Conclusions' Official Report, he approximately highlighted.

    >>> - But, "We Regret that the (EU) Citizens are Not Yet present in that 1st Plenary", and "that's Not a Good Signal for the European People's Participation, and that's Problematic". + Moreover, as things stand now, "there is Not Enough Time for Citizens, who participate in a Small Number, to really play a role during Only those 3 or 4 Months, if the Conference bas to End on May (2022)", Denounced to "Eurofora" the President of engaged NGO "Union of European Federalists" for France, Lawyer Ophelie Omnes, (who is Nowadays in Strasbourg for various Related Collective EU Events).

    => - "So that the Voice of the European People, either through NGOs and/or Directly as EU Citizens, Risks to Not be really Able to be Heard" sufficiently, she Warned.

    + "Eurofora"'s Project has Notoriously, Always, bee to Find some Creative but Serious ways to Use the New Tele-Communication Technologies in order to Allow, for the 1st Time in Contemporary History, in principle, for All 500 Millions of EU Citizens to take an active part, in one way or another, according to their Free Involvement, in the Collective Decision-Making Process, mainly by Expressing their Views and Wishes, in order to be Taken into Account,  Before Final EU Decisions affecting their Lives and Soiety at large, Will be Chosen by the competent Elected EUI Politicians.

    But, with Only 108 Citizens from the EU part (i.e. Not Chosen by Member States), among which 1/3 has to be Youngsters, while All of them are due to be "Chosen at Random" by a Company of Experts (sic ! ), such Too Narrow Limitations canNot really Stimulate European People's participatory Action, as it Should do, in order to Boost EU Democray Able to Back the Necessary Changes for Europe to Become a Sovereign and Autonomous World Actor !

    => In Consequence, to put it in a Nutshell, it remains to Seek a way so that, by "Waiting for EU Citizens" to Participate in this Conference on Europe's Future, (Comp. Supra), EU would Avoid an obvious Risl to be, in fact, ..."Waiting for Godot", (according to the World-Famous Tragi-Comedy of Irish Writer Samuel Becket...

Pierre Pflimlin's visionary line : Honouring the Memory of the man who wanted to build Europe on the Mountains, based on Spirit !

 

pflimlin.coe.1997_400

One of EuroFora's best inspirators is naturally Pierre Pflimlin :

We had a chance to personally meet the dynamic and experienced former President of both EU Parliament and CoE's Assembly, France's Prime Minister and Strasbourg's Mayor, only at his 90th anniversary, during an Historic speech at the Council of Europe, exceptionally full of people.

But his energetic figure looked more like a youngster of 19 years old, eager to win the Olympic games !..

Visionary, 2P was, from many points of view :

His daughter, Antoinette, Artist-decorator, and Senator Jung, President of a group of friends, confirmed us an Historian's revelation, that Pflimlin had initially the idea to build all European institutions (EU Parliament, Council of Europe, European Court of Human Rights, etc) at the spectacular heights of Oberhausbergen hills, with an eye-catching view of both French Vosges and German Black Forest Mountains, in the midst of a Forest : A real vision to create a brand New European Headquarters with a big ambition !

But, it seems, that "someone in Brussels" found that picture, precisely, too big for his taste, and threw a spanner on the works...

Pflimlin stroke back a Decade ago, at his Historic 1997 farewell speech :

He urged Europeans to find another, more substantial way, to lift Europe to more important Heights in Future :

- "On which basis can we imagine the birth of a great Europe ?", he asked.

"Certainly an Economic basis ! A solid market economy, meeting also the needs of social justice. A Political basis : Europe must become a strong Political Power, able to influence World's changes, naturally for Peace."

"But I believe that the essential foundation of a greater Europe should be of Spiritual nature : .... The great pacific Revolutions were Spiritual Victories" : They expressed "People's main motivation to live in a society with our Values of Liberty, Democracy, respect for Human Dignity".

"Then, the roadmap is ready : Yes, the foundation of the unity for a large Europe is the spiritual heritage, inspired by Christian Humanism and the Humanism of Renaissance, of Enlightenment, from which emerged a Civilisation focused on the Human person".

"Here is the task to be accomplished. It's very difficult".

"The Time approaches when I'll have to pass over the torchlight. God willing, this torch should enlighten the path of those who are going to build, tomorrow, the great Europe, marked by this Spirit".
