*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- While Hopes for things to Go somewhat Better after this 70th Anniversary of CoE's PanEuropean, 850 Millions People and 47 Member States - strong Organisation of Strasbourg, the Most Ancient in Europe (1949-2019), were Recently ReVived, Despite remaining and even Growing Problems and New Challenges Nowadays, on Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law,

Nevertheless, here or there, at least a Part of Various Critics, in certain cases Justified and even Useful,  Sometimes go Beyond Limits in a rather Excessive Pessimism, to the point that, perhaps, "Black Humor" could provide Help...

- Thus, f.ex., Earlier this Week, while French President Macron was visiting CoE's Parliamentary Assembly's Autumn 2019 Plenary Session, we saw a Press Conference by Representatives from 5 Countries, (Ukraine, Georgia, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia), suddenly Brandish a Threat to "Boycott" the (already Controversial, for Practical Organisational Issues : Comp. ..., etc) Festivities and Official Ceremony, organised at Strasbourg's Opera, for the CoE's 70th Anniversary, (in Addition to Ukranian MEP's Boycott of All this Weekly CoE Assembly's Session, as confirmed earlier).

Their Aim, obviously was to Publicise their Disagreement to Russian MEP's Return Back into CoE's Parliamentary Assembly, after 5 Years of UnPrecedented, Sterile and Excessive Divisions, which had Nothing Achieved, but Only to Risk to put Strasbourg's PanEuropean Organisation into tatters...

By doing so, 5 out of the Former "USSR" Member States, (while pro-Russian Armenia and Aghanistan are still embroiled in their Opposition,  Kazakstan up to Kirgistan a.o. appearing more or less Neutral in such matters), they Paradoxically Appeared as if a kind of Reconstituted "USSR" might be, Now, pointing fingers against Russia !

But, in their "USSR versus Russia" attempt, they inevitabl Forgot, inter alia, even ... "Beatles" World Famous Song of the good old Sixties (1968) : - "Back in USSR"...

Indeed :  "KIEV's Girls really Knock me out, and MOSCOW Girls make me Sing and shout. GEORGIA's are Always on my Mind", Beatles said, back on 1968, (at the 1st Song in their Famous "Whiten Album"), naively but simply Uniting Together, each one with its own identity, what Foreign Interferences, Division and Bloodshed vowed to Separate on 2014.

So that, Today, CoE's Top Political Body of its "Joint Committee", Bringing Together the Leaderships of its Ministers, MEPs, Secretary General, etc., was reportedly busy into looking also how to Prepare a foreseeable Future, less bumpy inside, efficiently closer to its principles, but also with more Unity, from January 2020 onwards.

Such a Legitimate and even Necessary Ambition, in order to Succeed in Real Practice, however, it also Needs to be more Careful on how to treat persons, Countries and Issues, as well as a much more Efficient "Com" Policy, particularly vis a vis Nowadays' Medias, as it's too often Discussed in Strasbourg during more than 30 Years now, and was even Reminded by some Political Groups' Leaders Earlier this Afternoon.

However, this was done mainly during an Interesting, But obviously Too Short : ... 30 Minutes Only (sic !) Public Debate inside CoE's Building, at its Parliamentary Assembly, the Only one to be Open to the Public, withOut need of Shady, Bureaucratic "Invitations", (sometimes arbitrarily given here, but "forgotten" there), as Last Tuesday's UnPrecedented and Controversial Event at Strasbourg City's far Away "Opera", (Comp.: ..., etc).

But, Meanwhile, some Harm had been already Provoked in real practice, which Should Better be Avoided in Future :

- So, Many Joked about the Fact that in most People's Minds, following the Establishment's mainstream Medias, the only "70th Anniversary" of which they had become Aware, Nowadays, (and particularly on that October 1st's events),

=> was, Not that of CoE's, but that of ...China's "Socialist/Communist" Republic's Foundation, also back on 1949, indeed, Proudly and Loudly Celebrated at Beijing, with Spectacular Public Events, Open to the People and the whole World !

To the point that among the various "Bad Jokes" reportedly Circulating in Strasbourg's diplomatic corridors was also one concerning EU Commission President Juncker's unexpected failure to participate in that controversial "Opera" outdoors but exceptionaly "closed" event for COE's own 70 Anniversary :

- Indeed, some Claim, Juncker perhaps, had just Asked his Staff to urgently get him "an Airplane Ticket for the 70th Anniversary" asap.

>>> But, when he rapidly got into his Car to Rush at the Airport, while he was Entering into the Airplane, at the Last Minute, thanks God, he Suddenly Realized the Facts, and Immediately went Back, Running as Fast as he could, Before the Doors Closed Behind him :

=> That Plane was Heading Not to Strasbourg, But towards Beijing !...

*Paris/ACM/12 October 2008/-

When Europeans really feel a vital need to urgently launch common replies to challenging World Crisis, as the present Financial turmoil of Global Markets, they forge new decision-making tools and new dynamics :

The 1st in History EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, organized in Paris at the invitation of French President, and current EU chair, Nicolas Sarkozy, with the participation of 15 national leaders and EU institutions' chairmen, partly enlarged to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, after a highly symbolic duo with German Chancelor Angie Merkel, at General De Gaulle's birth-village, 50 Years after he welcomed there former German chancellor Adenauer (1958-2008), may have not one, but two results :

- The first, and more urgent, was to launch an "ambitious", "coherent", and "efficient" common European movement, able to stimulate "solutions" to the World Economic Crisis, as Sarkozy anounced from the outset : State Garantees (to new Bank debts up to 5 years), fresh Capital input (f.ex. by buying shares), support to distressed banks, (while also restructuring them), incite the European Central Bank to facilitate commerial bills europe-wide, etc.

"Acting swiftly", from tomorrow, national measures will quantify all these targets, with coordinated actions from all EuroZone's Governments : France, Germany, Italy and others, decided to anounce, at the same time, such concrete measures, according to agreements that we have already made all together, revealed Sarkozy at the final Press Conference, flanked by EuroZone's chairmen : EuroGroup's Jean-Claude Juncker, and Central European Bank's Jean-Claude Truchet, as well as EU Commission's Jose Baroso, to solemnly stress the will to find common European solutions.

- "United and Determined, all EuroZone's Countries will act to prove that Citizens can Trust" the Economy, Sarkozy concluded. If we attract also all EU's 27 countries, Wednesday in Brussels, then we can coordinate action with our American Friends at a Global level, he anounced.

- "With this new Toolbox, we do not want to serve Bankers, but to work for Europe and its Citizens' interests", added Juncker.

- "For the moment, we want to act urgently to regulate the Crisis. But the time will come when those responsible for this, will have to account for their actions. Yes to real Capitalism, No to Speculators. Those who abused, will face sanctions, Sarkozy warned.


Need stimulates activities which create new organs, say biologists, and Gordon Brown, compatriot of Spencer, the famous bio-Historian, would certainly not deny that, after his surprise visit to EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which attracted him one hour more than scheduled...

Decisions include also the creation of a Crisis-management European mechanism, which "requires constant Monitoring", as well as strengthening Economic policy cooperation between EuroZone's countries.

Sarkozy will be judged by History not just by the immediate Economic results, expected at the end of this week's decision-making proces at National and EU level, but also by the more far-reaching consequences at the aftermath of this Historic EuroZone 1st Summit : Will it succeed to become a precursor forging a New era in European institution's revitalization ?

Significantly, the French President sat, during discussions, between German Chancelor Merkel, and British Prime Minister Brown, facing the chairmen of EuroGroup, Juncker, ECB : Truchet, and EU Commission, Baroso, with Prime Ministers of Spain, Zapatero (a hot partisan of EuroZone's Summit) at his right side, and Italy's Berlusconi, at his left, surrounded by Austrian, Belgian, Cyprus', Finland's, Greece's, and Ireland's leaders, as well as Slovakia's, Slovenia's, Portugal's, Netherlands', Malta's and Luxembourg's leaders.

Meanwhile, those who tabled for a rift between French and German positions were faced with a smiling Merkel at De Gaulle-Adenauer's meeting place, a sunny Saturday morning, and a particularly active-looking Merkel inside the French Presidential Palace at Elysee's gardens on Sunday, (as happy few photographers discovered)..

- "De Gaulle's hilltop, at Colombey-les-2-Eglises, gave an astonishing overview to a huge landscape, entirely surrounded by splendid Nature, as far as eyes could see", said to EuroFora an obviously charmed German Journalist.

She was describing Saturday's inauguration of a High-Tech Memorial close to the Historic Giant Double Lorraine's Cross, built by famous Novelist Andre Malraux, to perpetuate the Memory of his famous call for "Resistance" to NAZI, and his vision for the creation of New Institutions and Franco-German reconciliation, to foster Europe's role in the World, also for the Future.
