*Brussels/EU Council/Angelo Marcopolo/- 
This EU Heads of State/Government Summit seems to have been Hijacked by Internet Spying and other Network Attacks issues just after the  Revelations on what happened mainly during US President Obama's 2009-2013 period, including taping of German Chancelor Merkel and Hundreds of other Political Leaders in Europe and around the World, on North American NSA's scandal, going from EU Leadership's reactions, up to the focus of Press and Public's attention, including even an exceptional breakdown of EU's main Press Room Internet connections, of unknown origin !

Shortly after various Heads of States/Government and EU Top Officials started to express their indignation at the EPP's Summit together with Merkel, earlier this Afternoon, at a Castle in Meuse, a few kms out of the City, it was the turn of EU Parliament's President, experienced Socialist MEP Martin Schultz from Germany, speaking later-on to Journalists, including "EuroFora" in downtown Brussels' EU Council Headquarters, to take the unprecedented step to even "ensure that the EU Parliament does not intend to launch any Terrorist Attack in the USA !", after revelations that its recently inaugurated Washington DC. Office was included among  the Targets...

Everybody understood here the need for EU - USA Cooperation, including, particularly, in order to Fight Deadly Terrorism at a Global level, but not at all the Abuses reportedly committted between "Allies" (as Merkel had stressed), which were judges as "unacceptable", particularly when they share the same Democratic ansd Human Rights Values.

 

 Therefore, a Majority of MEPs has asked, earlier in Strasbourg, to postpone EU -USA Negotiations on "Swift" and on a Free Trade Agreement, etc., until things are clarified, and "Trust" (necessary even for People to use and boost any Digital Economy) can be re-build. 


The move came just a few years after another Secret Spying Scandal inside the US, had recently Targetted mainly Socio-Politicaly designated Victims, such as active "Tea Party" Militants, dissident Christian Organizations, and several US Republican Party"s Politicians, reportedly seeking Personal Data related to ther Financial Resources, etc., which had provoked a row throughout the US, where even Popular front-runner Candidate to GOP's Primaries before the 2008 US Presidential Elections, Santorum, had already felt the need to re-launch his Campaign with the Heading of "Freedom", and a Timely reference to America's Founding Fathers who had focused, in their World Famous "Independence" Resolution, since the 18th Century of the "Enlightnement", mainly on Human Rights, starting with the Historic words :- "We the People"..

But things now started to go even more Nasty, when, suddenly, also the Media, whose attention had already started to be captivated by a "Tsunami" of such revelations shaking Brussels' Top Political Discussions unfortunately right at the moment when EU Leaders had scheduled to deal with Plans to boost the Internet and Digital Economy in Europe in order to stimulate Growth, apparently came themselves under something which realy looks as if it was a kind of ... Internet Attack, at least at EU Council's main Press Room at its majestic Ground Floor, where many Hundreds of European Journalists, including "EuroFora", use to work since the latest Moderniozation of the Central Builduing, many years ago, when an exceptional, and unprecedently widespread and heavy BreakDown of all its Wifi Internet links emerged, brutaly Disrupting and Blocking Computer and Connexion Press Work for many Hours'  precious Time, destroyed by never seen before, white, almost empty pages hanging too long on PC screens !

 20131024_211406_400_01


Questioned by "EuroFora", EU Council's Press Director, Nicolas Kerleroux, acknowledged that it was Difficult, if not impossible yet to find any known Normal Explanation of such incidents (felt  by many Journalists, desperately running to find, at the last minute, some fixed Internet Cables that we hadn't been obliged to use for years), since the Number of Press Workers was rather as usual until now, without any exceptional augmentation, (several Collegues, even among those who used to be always present there, having this time decided to come at the EU Summit only at its Conclusion, Tomorrow, Friday, as "EuroFora" witnessed), and, on the Contrary, EU's Internet Technical Services had even "Augmented" recently the Total Capacity of its Wifi Network, as he told us.


An Hypothesis that, perhaps, these incidents might have beenn caused, by an eventually exceptional augmentation of Audio-Visual Medias, specially this time, which use a lot of Broadband Width, should apparently be dismissed, after another, also very experienced EU Press Official told "EuroFora" that, in fact, many such Problems had already Started to suddenly Pop Up "since Yesterday Afternoon", (i.e. since Wednesday, Octo"ber 23), when most Media workers had not even arrived at Brussels' EU Council's Headquarters. He told us that, even until late Evening/Night, - "Our Technicians are in the process of Searching to find the Cause", which still remained rather a Mystery until now...  


Inevitably, "EuroFora"s co-Founder remembered of a much older, exceptional Incident, right in the middle of particularly "Hot" Political issues, which has occured even inside UNO's own Headquarters at New York (USA), on the sidelines of an exceptional Global Heads of State/Government World Summit and just before UNO's General Assembly's usual Annual Plenary Session starts, when suddenly the Lights wend down, many parts of the UN Building (surrounded by much Higher Skyscrapers, which, on the contrary, seemed to work just fine) falling into Deep Darkness, without any possibility to extend Computers' work, and apparently provoking such Security Problems that some Officials took the Exceptional Decision to Close and Empty many Areas and Floors, including at the main Press rooms, shortly after a particulaly "Hot"  Press Conference by a Head of State, together with the then sUNO's Director of Press and Communication, during which some specialy nasty issues had been raised :


- "UN are Powerless !", joked, laughing, (with an obvious "Gift"  for Press Headlines, but of Dubious Use), an American Collegue, when Lights went down, reportedly throwing then even UN SG Koffi Annan's Offices at another Floor, apparently making a hint to Past Controversies around the 2nd Iraq War, etc..


Well, at least as far as it concerns the apparent Mood now prevailing among EU Leaders and Officials inside Brussels' EU Council's Headquarters, on the Contrary, the Feeling seems going towards an absolutely Opposite Direction.

Particularly when, even symbolically, but also Timely, the brand New EU Council's Building, of an original Architectural Design, is, currently, fastly approaching Completion, just outside of key square Schuman, (hopefully also equiped with stronger Internet Wifi Defence for European Press communications : See Photo on the Top)..

+Meanwhile, the Leader of "Green" MEPs in EU Parliament, German MEP Rebeka Harms, replying to an "EuroFora"'s question in Brussels, didn't exclude a possible Agreement, at least on some main points, with the ChristianDemocrats of Chancelor Angie Merkel, during the forthcoming Years or even Months, in one way or another : - "Our Party Congress' fundamental decision (last week-end in Berlin) was to be Open not only to SPD, but also to all other German Political Parties, naturally including also CDU/CSU, she simply reminded, as a matter of principle.


Comming particularly from Harms, who earler wasn't at all for a "Green"- "Black" Coalition, this appears to be at least a certainly notable development. A fortiori now that the issue of the Protection of EU Citizens and even EU Politicians and State Leaders from Internet Spying and/or various other Web Network Attacks, that some among the "Green" Leaders, older and more new, want to push forward, the move might have Timely repercussions in the foreseable Future...

   Renew Europe's Historic Legend with Parthenon's pure white marble at the eve of crucial 2009 EU Elections, was the ambition of an interesting Art Exhibition, with more topical Symbols than expected, organized by EU Parliament's 1st vice-President Rodi Kratsa-Tsagaropoulou and MEP Marie Panayotopoulos- Cassiotou, Chair of the Inter-group on Family policy, during March A session in Strasbourg.     

According to the Ancient Legend, God Zeus, charmed by young Girl Europe, was trasformed into a strong Bull with Wings, and when she tamed him with Human affection, they flew over the Sea to live together in a New Land with large, fertile landscapes.  


- "There, they saw the Continent with a "Large Front" ("Eureia -opse" in Greek => Eur-opse => Europe)", reminded the Sculptor, Mary Papaconstantinou, of the European Women Association, honored by awards in Paris, Athens and Strasbourg.

    Thus, Europe's Legend combines Symbols of Energy and Strength, with caring Human personality, to bring towards New, large Horizons :

    - "Modern Art for this Ancient Greek Legend here in Strasbourg reminds that Europe, placing Human dignity at its heart, always finds the strength to overcome any Crisis towards New achievements. And EU Parliament offers Citizens a chance to artfully interact", said MEP Panayotopoulos-Cassiotou.

    Structured like some Rembrand's pictural sequences, Europe's sculptural exhibition forms a series of many statutes, sized and flat as a PC screen, representing many scenes inspired from the original Legend, "according to Moschos' text, a Writer of the 2nd century B.C.", said Sculptor Mary to "EuroFora".  

    Made by sparkling pure white Marble full of Symbols, they incite to think but also to act, as in front of a Book with half of its pages full of written text, but another half, free to write on white paper..

    While several EU politicians think that one of the most important characteristics of the 2009 EU Elections is that from their outcome may depend Europe's Identity and Future, Culture Minister of Greece, Antonis Samaras (a former MEP) send the message that, precisely, such modern Art linked to Historic legends may help "EU Citizens search the origins of Europe's Identity".

     - "The Legend says that they founded a New City, Thebes, and that reminds us that Europe is always a project of Invention and Creation", added EU Parliament's vice-President, Rodi Kratsa - Tsagaropoulou.

    Sculptor Mary Papaconstantinou said that she "tried for years to find the same White Marble from Penteli Mountain that was used by Praxitelis and all those who created Parthenon", symbol of Democracy and one of the 7 wonders of the World.

    - "By shaping this millenary Greek Marble to revive Europe's Ancien Legend with Modern Art, it reminds that Europe is a Hope for a better Future after Crisis, combining Energy for Development, with care for the Human person", said the sculptor's compatriot from Chios island, famous from French artist Delacroix's historic painting, MEP Panayotopoulos - Cassiotou.

    She now lives with her Family close to Rhine river, at EU's heart, near Bonn, where had started to work for the first time on European issues the new EU Parliament's Secretary General, Klaus Welle :

    By a symbolic coincidence, Europe's legend built anew with Parthenon's marble, marked for ever the beginning of young and energetic Welle's duties as new head of EU Parliament's administration, since he saluted the retiring, out-going S.G., the experienced Harold Rohmer, shortly afterwards, at another gathering on the same floor of Louise Weiss' superb building in Strasbourg...

    Organisers of both events said that it was a pure coincidence. People are free to believe them, or hope otherwise...


**********************

    They disagree in almost everything, except from one thing :

- EU Parliament's Art unites even opposed politicians in a common belief for Europe : Cyprus' example...


imag0859_400

Rarely united together, but posing for "EuroFora" with the statute of Europe and Zeus flying over the Sea, ChristianDemocrat/EPP's MEP Yannis Kasulides, a frontrunner Presidential candidate in 2008, former Foreign Minister and Government Spokesman, and EuroLeft's MEP Kyriakos Triantafylides, Chairman of EU - Palestinian Council delegation, from the governing party AKEL (new Left) of the elected President, disagree on almost everything, except from their common claim that Europe of the Ancient Legend, when she flew with God Zeus from Ancient Phynecia to the West, must have crossed the island of Cyprus !

Hard to prove the contrary, 3.000 years later...

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 ?
