*Angelo Marcopolo/- At the Symbolic "Human Rights' parvis" of Paris' "Trocadero" square, between 50.000 or 200.000 People, according to various estimations, (except from the Police, which didn't say), mainstream Frontrunner Candidate of the Center-Right in the forthcoming French Presidential Elections of April/May 2017, Francois Fillon, strongly confirmed his "Determination to Fight against Islamic Terrorism", for a Real Change from the Out-Going "Socialist" Government, pointing out that his Project was the Only one Able to achieve that, while also Winning versus an EU-Sceptic Far Right currently Surfing at the Polls' Top, (including for the subsequent Parliamentary Elections of June 2017). That's why he launched a vibrant Call for the French People to "Revolt" and "Resist" to Last-minute Attempts for a "Hold Up against Democracy".

      - "My dear compatriots:  - They think that I am alone... Are We Alone ?", he asked from the outset the People, getting a Loud - "No !" in Reply from Many Thousands, tightly packed in that Huge Square, linked to several Large Avenues around it.

     - "You have Inherited a Past with a Long History, which is always Present. You are the France of Farmers, Cathedrals, Castles and Poor People, which was Bright, and still is Bright in Arts, Science, Technology, a France Opposed to Terrorists and Tyrans with its Moral and Armed Forces. You are that Republic, which creates Brotherhood, ...Born through Centuries of Fights for the General Interest", the former Prime Minister of Nicolas Sarkozy (2007-2012) reminded to the People.

     - This Republic " is a Revolt", "a Movement" : Even "If it Falls, it Stands Up, as Gavroche in his Barricade", Fillon referred to the 1789 French Revolution. "It Always Gets Up, and that's because of Voltaire and Rousseau (Revolutionary Philosophers), but also because of Victor Hugo (famous pro-European Writer), Clemenceau, (Historic Prime Minister at the 1st WW), and of the Heroes of 20 Years of Resistance", (including during the 2nd WW Invasion/Occupation, etc), Fillon spiced up his Popular Call, obviously in relation the controversial circumstances of nowadays, (See Infra).

 

troc_fillon_eiffel_400


    - "Our 1st Value is Freedom", he referred to France's famous National Trilogy, ("Liberty, Equality, Solidarity"), in an "Address to those Brave" People, "that the System attempts to DisCourage, those who are Bold, and it Muzzles, those who Dare, and it Suspects, i.e. to those for whom Freedom is a Chance to Take their Destiny in their Hands",  (an indirect but clear reference to his Earlier Call for the People Not to Let Anyone Steal them their Democratic Right to Freely and Consciously Choose the Political Representatives that they really Want, in the forthcoming Presidential and Legislative Elections of April - June 2017, Crucial also for All Europe).

 

troc_people_eurofora_screesnhot_400


    - Calling for a "Renaissance" of France, against "5 Years of Decline" ( during the Out-Going "Socialist" Governement : 5/2012 - 5/2017), the Front-runner Candidate of the Center-Left main Opposition, Denounced "a Long Winter", during which the Country "Lost its Economic Rank" and "its Standing inside Europe", while its "Social Coherence was rapidly vanishing" : - "6 Millions of UnEmployed, 9 Millions of Poor, an Abandoned Youth, Divided People, Hate spreading around", added to "an Unsustaianable Debt, in the middle of the Ruins of our Industry and Economy", as he Criticized.

 

trocadero_people__avenues_eurofora_shot_400


    - "All Hard, but Important Decisions were Postponed. Pals were Appointed, instead of those who Deserved it", there was "Contempt for UnConfortable Truths", and "Upseting Realities were Forgotten", while "Inside" the Country "remained a Crisis", "Outside, emerged Wars", and "Europe was Dislocating", Fillon regretted, (particularly after the recent 2014 Ukraine Conflict and Syrian/Libyan Clashes, but also a growing EU-Scepticism, 2016 BREXIT, Uncertainties on Europe's Future, etc).

 

troc_fillon_poigne_400


    - It's mainly Because, in fact, France "was Not really Governed", but merely "Managed by the 1st Secretary of the Socialist Party" (i.e. the Outgoing President Hollande, who does Not participate in the New Elections), he criticized, denouncing what he named as "Hollandism".


    + And "during these Last Weeks", something "Disgusting" occured, with those "Fleeing, like Ducks, from one (Political) Side to anOther", running "for Constituencies, Money", etc, with "assumed Desertions, Shamelessly" : "But the People have Nothing to do with such kinds of Calculations and Carreers-chassing", "Betrayals", etc, Fillon denounced by obviously Fustigating Some former Allies, (particularly from the Center), who Abandoned him, pretexting of a recent Judicial and Mediatic Harassment, (See, f.ex. ; ... + ...).


     - In front of "a Campaign of Denigration", "Excess, Disproportions, Hate", and "InJustice", he, however, Acknowledged some "Hesitations" from "a Honest Man, who spend his Life at the Service of the General Interest, Trying to take the Decisions that he believed to be Just", as he said.

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


    At this point, Fillon apparently might have Committed an Error now, (at least from "Eurofora"s point of view), by practicaly asking to be Excused for having "Asked my Wife to Work for me, because she knew that area, and it was practical", but "I shouldn't have done that", as he was pushed to say Today.


    But, in fact, it could well be the Contrary : I.e., by Avoiding to Appoint one or two Mistresses as his Parliamentary Assistants, (as Some Other Politicians have notoriously done, while a former UK Labour/Socialist Prime Minister even Appointed his Secretary at the House of Lords !), but Prefering to Work Together with his Wife, as a kind of Family Enterprise or Team Work, (something that not only SMEs, Farmers, etc., but even Writers and Intellectuals, as, f.ex. the World Famous Science Fiction Writer Isaac Asimov, notoriously used to do all his life, closely cooperating with his Wife, who worked for his Books even After his Death at an Old Age !), Fillon might have attracted a lot of Sympathy by Many simple and Honest, Family-loving average People...

 

troc_fillon_wife_flags_salute_ok_400

    In this regard, by a Symbolic Coincidence, after initialy Braving the Rain Today, Bright Sunshine brought, Later-on, Smiles in the embattled faces of Francois and Penelope Fillon, (an Historic Name, notoriously steming from Ancient Greek Hero Odysseas' Wife, faithfuly Waiting for his Long and Difficult Return from the Troian War), waving herself a French Flag, among the People, (see relevant "Eurofora" shots).

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


     - "But I felt often Strengthened by Realizing that, When I would be found to be Innocent, ... those who Accuse me so Hastily, would feel Ashamed". However, "the Problem is that, this Day will come Too Late", because, in the meantime, the forthcoming, April 2017, crucial Presidential "Election, will have been Rigged !", he Warned.  


     - And "this would have Hindered" the People "to put a Stop to 2 Scandals", which Threaten to "Disfigure the Country, much more Profoundly" :


    - (a) I.e., at First, "the insidious, but Terrible, by its Consequences, way in which (the Out-going President) Francois Hollande pushed our Country to Downgrade", f.ex., Delaying "Growth, and undermining our Childrens' Future" (by more Debt : Comp. Supra), while, now, it's "his Former Assistant, Mr. Macron (another Center-Left Candidate to the 2017 Presidential Elections, among the Frontruners, according to most Polls), who .. adopts his Program, as a Merchand of Illusions", he Criticized.


    + (b) "The 2nd Scandal is that of All our (Political) Competitors, who, regarless of Economic Realities, Disregarding all Challenges in the World, don't hesitate to Promisse (only) 32 Hours (of Work per Week), a Return Back to the Frank" Currency, "to Augment Public Expenditure", "without paying attention to the (Risks of) Bankruptcy !", Fillon Denounced, fustigating a "Demagogy" of "Illusionists" and "Extremists", (apparently pointing not only at his Left, but also towards the Rightists).

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


    - All this "would be a Comedy", if, "during the Last 5 Years" (2012-2017), hadn't "Emerged one of the Most Terrible Dangers, that France faced since Decades", he Warned :


     - Denouncing "the Islamic Totalitarianism", Fillon reminded the Horrible Massacres targetting Civilian People at "Toulouse (Merah), Charlie Hebdo (Magazine), HyperCacher (Jewish Shop), Bataclan and Paris' Caffees, Nice" city, etc...


    - In this regard, (i.e., for the Fight against ISIS and other such Terrorists), "Contrary to those who Delay and Hesitate", or "Don't Speak about that", "I am Absolutely Determined", he stressed.


    _  - F.ex., "any individual Guilty of Complicity with the Enemy, (ISIS, etc), Must be Condemned", and "France canNot Serve as Sanctuary", or Hinterland "Backing Islamo-Fascism !", Francois Fillon, (Writer of a recent Book Titled : "Win against Islamic Terrorism"), Urged, Denouncing also "Anti-Semitism" and the Abuse of "Women as 2nd Class Citizens", etc., by Islamistic Extremists.


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


    - In such Circumstances, "to Legitimate Concerns, was (recently) Added also the Anger against that Witch-Hant targetting me, which ... Aims to Destroy the Right" side of the Political Spectrum, and "Steal its Vote" to the forthcoming, Crucial Presidential and Parliamentary Elections, Fillon strongly Criticized.


    => But, "Instead of Yielding to Anxiety or Anger", We have to "Change that into a huge Energy" to "Resolutely Redress the Country, Restore Cohesion and State Authority", feeling "Proud" for  France's Historic role in "Spreading to the World the Spirit of Enlightnement" (18th Century), and for "having Always Found, even in the Middle of the Worst Moments of its History, the best ways for Courage ad Reconciliation", while also being "a Welcoming Land for all those who Understand its Richness", even if "coming from Various Horizons", but "Reinforce its Cohesion and Strength", by "Associating Diversity... with Our Traditions", as he said, speaking "Against those Prophets of Doom" and "Pessimism".

 

troc_fillon_...trumps_400


     - "Many People are Ready to Face all the Challenges in front of us", and "France is pretty Inventive", several "Initiatives pop up throughout all the Country", f.ex. on how to "accompagny the Digital Revolution, or based on the Richness of our Industrial or Craftsmanship Heritage", thanks to which, "Businessmen Invent the World of the Future", showing that "there is No Fatality", but "Thousands of >Inventors and Volunteers seek to start a New Resistance", as he Named the Will to "Build a Better World", "withOut Risks to be Destroyed by Globalisation, strangled by Red Tape, Deprived of Dialogue", but "Stimulating the Desire to Create, to be an Actor of Redress, Each one in his role", since "our Citizens both Dare and are Talented", "Belonging to a Nation with Huge Potential".

 

troc_fillon_thumbs_up_after_400


    - So, "Let's Create, Innovate, Work Together", "withOut Ridiculous Conflicts", "Never falling into Despair" ,"Neither Letting the Passions of a moment to bypass National Needs", "Nor Others to Dictate this Decisive Choice", but with "a Deep Desire for a Renewal", Fillon invited.

 

trocadero_fillon__people_erfra_shot_400


    - "This Choice belongs to our People, to their Votes and Hopes", and "Will be that of France, if we Pull as all Together, in a Final Effort", he Urged in Conclusion, speaking almost 1 Month Before the crucial forthcoming Presidential Election.


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

    + Speaking Later this Evening, to a TV Interview, in Reply to Press Questions, Fillon made it Clear that, despite some Pressure, and an "Unprecedented in History", Last-Minute Harassment at the Eve of a so Important Election, that he Denounced as "a Hold Up against Democracy", he does Not Intend at all to Withdraw from the Race, particularly Not after having been Massively Applauded, earlier Today at Trocadero, "by about 200.000 People", as he and others estimated, Strongly Believing that he presents "the Only Credible Project for a Real Political Change".

 

tv_fillon_after_400


     - Nobody from any particular Party has any Right to Block what was clearly Decided by More than 4 Millions of People who Voted at the 2016 Primaries, "Open" to various Political Groups, underlined the Winner of that race, Adding, nevertheless, that he was "Listening" to all his main Friends and Allies' various advise, always motivated by the "General Interest", and Agreeing that his "No 1 Competitor" was Marine Le Pen's Rightists of the "National Front" Party, as he said during a "Hot" Cross-Fire of Critical Queries.


     - "At last", the Time has Come to seriously Debate about the Substance of Issues and Political Projects, f.ex. on UnEmployment, on how to Fight "Islamic Totalitarianism", and Build a Better "Future", Fillon urged.

 politkovskaya_gongadze_adali_400

Hu Jia's prize brings SAKHAROV's wife to "EuroFora" on murders of Journalists Politkofskaya, Gongadze and Adali :

- Elena Bonner : "All Journalists' murders must be fully investigated", without Double Standards.                                                                                    

During a special Mega-Event to celebrate 20 Years of SAKHAROV Prize for "Freedom of Thought", attributed in 2008 by EU Parliament to jailed Chinese Cyber-Dissident Hu JIA, the move was reinforced by strongly criticizing the persisting impunity in three cases of Journalists' Murders, such as POLITKOVSKAYA in Russia, GONGADZE in Ukraine, and ADALI in Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus.

Any bureaucratic doubt about whether Cyber-dissidents like Hu JIA might have, or not, a right to be protected as all Journalists must be, particularly when they take risks to search, find and publish original and critical News on issues of general interest to the society, could not resist to the emotion provoked by the message of his Wife, Zeng JINYAN spectacularly transmitted at a big screen in EU Parliament's hemicycle :

- "The most important and most interesting thing he did was to ... say the Truth :.. to write about the phenomena he observed... He never stopped Publishing.. on websites, so that the Public could learn about the reality .. and understand it.  In my view, this has been his greatest contribution", stressed the young wife of the jailed man, eager to cite also the cases of other critical journalists who faced various kinds of "harassment".

 - "Welcoming all those who have suffered for defending Human Rights", EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert POETTERING, who had invited to Strasbourg all former Sakharov prize-winners from various Countries throughout the World, said that "China needs Europe, and Europe needs China : A great nation" with which "we want to have a good relationship", "association and ..friendship". "But we are never going to stop our fight for Human Rights, and No Government can expect this from us".

    - "It's impossible  to achieve goals of Peace, if Human Rights are left out. In fact, Peace and Human Rights are intrinsequaly linked", added POETTERING.

    It's in this spirit that MEPs adopted, on Thursday, a Resolution denouncing that "the criminal
investigation and trial following the murder of (a) Journalist ...raises serious concerns with regard to transparency and respect for the rule of law", when a "brutal killing has not yet been fully investigated and solved in a satisfactory way".

    The text refered to dissident Journalist "Anna POLITOVSKAYA", a critic of Tchechen conflict, killed some years ago in Moscow, where Russian Authorities have found, arrested and are currently judging two executants, while also searching to arrest also a 3rd one, allegedly escaped in Belgium. But they have not yet found the instigators.

     Similar texts were adopted recently also on dissident Ukranian Journalist Georgiy GONGADZE's murder, for which Ukranian Authorities have at least found, arrested and condemned 2 executants to 12 and 13 Years of jail, but not yet the instigators. For that purpose, they recently accepted an International Experts team to participate to the investigations.     

But, it's only for the Murder of dissident Turkish Cypriot Journalist ADALI, in the occupied territories of Cyprus, that Turkey has NOT yet found ANYONE responsible, and even claimed recently inside CoE that it would be "impossible" to do so !    

These astonishing differences exist despite the fact that ECHR condemned alike Ukraine and Turkey with 2 Judgements on the same year : 2005, for the murders of  Journalists GONGADZE and ADALI, strong critics of Corruption in Ukraine, and of Ankara's policies on mass-influx of Turkish Settlers in the Occupied Territories of Cyprus, respectively.    

Regarless of that, CoE's Committee of Ministers, who is entrusted with the duty to supervise execution of ECHR's judgements, has just asked Ukraine's Government to reply to further questions on Gongadze's murder before March 2009, while Turkey, curiously, got a longer postponement for answering questions on Adali's murder, until June...   

A comparison of these cases, raises serious questions about Double Standards :

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

On TRANSPARENCY :
--------------------------
    On Gongadze's murder, CoE's body speaks even about the participation of
"an INTERNATIONAL group of Experts" in the Investigation, (f.ex. of "Tape Recordings"), accepted by Ukraine.
    On the contrary, on Adali's murder, CoE is obliged to repeatedly ask (for a 2nd
time) Turkey whether, at least, it informed the victims' Family, or not...
------------------------------
- On EFFICIENCY :
-----------------------
On Gongadze's murder, CoE formally "recalls that the Committee (of Ministers) ..URGED the Ukranian authorities.. to TAKE ALL NECESSARY INVESTIGATIVE STEPS TO ACHIEVE CONCRETE and VISIBLE RESULTS in the INVESTIGATION, aimed at the Identification of the INSTIGATORS and Organisers of the Murder", and "STRONGLY INVITED the Ukranian Authorities to provide information on the PROGRESS IN THE INVESTIGATION", before MARCH 2009.

But, on Adali's murder, on the contrary, CoE's body merely .. "took note" of the "arguments presented by" Cyprus, which denounce the absence of any proof of new "investigation" by Turkey. Following Turkey's own suggestion (!), it simply "noted" that there is "no limitation period" for "any new element" to "lead potentialy (sic !) to a Re-Opening of the Investigation". Without saying who might find any such "new" fact, since Turkey stoped searching... It also POSTPONED the issue until .. JUNE  !
-----------------------
 - On the PUNISHMENT OF THOSE RESPONSIBLE :
----------------------
 -  On Gongadze's murder case, Ukranian Authorities already arrested and condemned, at least 2 suspects, to 12 and 13 Years of jail. And on Politkovskaya's murder at least 2 suspects are judged, and a 3rd one "wanted".

On the contrary, on Adali's murder case, the Turkish authorities simply claim that "it had not been possible to obtain new .. information .. on the basis of which criminal charges could be brought against ANY person" !...

Moreover,  a LETTER sent by Turkey ...2 Years after CoE's 2006 call to re-investigate anew Adali's murder case, is totally EMPTY of Facts ! As Cypus' Delegation denounced earlier, Turkey's Letter ONLY CLAIMS that a "New Investigation" was made without any result, but does NOT even cite ANY FACT to prove it :

F.ex.,on the crucial issue of the "MOTIVATIONS" behind Adali's murder, noted by ECHR, Turkey MERELY CLAIMS that "all allegations  were investigated; without result", but OMITS ANY FACT TO PROVE IT !..(It doesn't even remind which were these "allegations").. .

+ On ECHR's astonishment that the Turkish Occupation regime didn't produce any "BALLISTIC REPORT" on the Shots which murdered Adali, Turkey again repeats, 12 years later, that, still, even until now, "it  was not possible to obtain the BalisticReport"...

- As for the astonishing absence of key-WITNESSES' Testimonies, denounced by ECHR, Turkey agains repeats various pretexts avoiding to reveal anything, (Fex. that a person "left" the Occupied Territories  "on 2002", or that another witness was heard, but without revealing nothing of what he said, etc).

Turkey obviously "FAILS TO MEET THE CRITICISM made BY THE COURT" for lack of any efficient Investigation in Adali's case, concluded Cyprus' Government.
---------------------------------------------
Replying to our Question which COMPARED these 3 outstanding cases of "JOURNALISTS MURDERS", Adali, Gongadze and Politkovskaya, in order to avoid "Double Standards" by asking from Ukraine and Russia more than what is asked EU candidate Turkey, many European personalities were critical /

They criticised Ankara's recent claim at the CoE to stop investigating, because it would be "impossible to find anyone" responsible for the 5 bullet shots which killed Kutlu ADALI in front of his Family Home, contrary to the other two Journalists' murders, where Ukraine and Russia at least arrested the executants, searching now for the instigators :
----------------------------------

imag0103_400

    - "Where was that ? In Turkish Occupied Cyprus ? WITHOUT ANY DOUBT : Any murder of Journalist should be investigated in full ! All these Murders must be investigated !", replied the famous SAKHAROV's wife, Elena BONNER to our question on Adali's case, compared to Gongadze and Politofskaya.

    Elena Bonner spoke us EXCLUSIVELY shortly after being honored by the President
of EU Parliament on the occasion of 20 Years of her husband's SAKHAROV Prize.

    A strong personality, Sakharov's wife even had to struggle against an anonymous EU staffer who, astonishingly, tried to stop her speaking when h heard our question on "Turkey" (!) : - "Please, let me translate, she continues
speaking, don't stop us !", had to cry Sakharov's daughter, (a Journalist
herself), who was translating her mothers' reply, (obliged to speak louder to
make her voice heard despite the harassment).. (= + Audio Proof !)

    Earlier, Elena Bonner also fustigated "Double Standards" at another case, on
Western countries' attitude vis a vis Kosovo and the Kurds : -F.ex. "You have
recognized a few 400.000 Kosovars as an "independent" country, but you still
deny that to 30 millions of Kurds in Turkey !", she denounced.
-----------------------------
    - "This (ADALI's murder) is an issue which should be pursued by the Committee
for Human Rights. That's why we have one, and it's its duty to examine cases of
Journalists' murders as the one you referred to. You should bring the case in
front of that Committee", suggested in reply to our question on Adali, EU
Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert POETTERING.

    - "It's impossible  to achieve goals of PEACE, if HUMAN RIGHTS are left out :
in fact, Peace and Human Rights are intrinsequaly linked", added POETTERING.
--------------------------------------
    + "For us (European/International Federation of Journalists) it's clear :
Whenever a Journalist is Murdered, the Investigation should continue until
those Responsible are found !", replied earlier to another question on ADALI
EFJ/IFJ's Secretary General, Aidan WHITE.

    Speaking as a matter of General Principle, White asked us for "concrete data"
on the execution of ECHR's judgement on Adali case, in order to "look at it in
depth" and "make a formal statement", in comparison with the other Murdered
Journalist case, also pending at CoE's  Ministers for completing its execution,
on Ukranian Gongadze.
----------------------------------------------------
     From EU Rapporteur on Human Rights, vice-President of EU Parliament Liberties' Committee, MEP Giusto CATANIA, we were told that, since there is an ECHR judgement in both Adali and Gongadge's cases, "Turkey must naturally execute the judgement and make a full and efficient investigation, until those responsible for the Journalist's murder are found and punished".

    Even if "we (Catania's "EuroLeft" Group) support Turkey's EU perspectives, this does not mean that Ankara should not behave properly. On the contrary, it means that they have to meet tough conditions, particularly on Human Rights", was added on the occasion of Adali's murder case.

    Moreover, "since you raise the issue of Mr. Adali's muder as a part of a Series of Journalist's murders, including fex. Gongadze, Politkovskaya, ao., tthen we (EU) could also act together with CoE's Commissioner on Human Rights, Thomas HAMMARBERG, it was suggested.

    - "We (EU) must step up efforts against the problem of IMPUNITY : Real Peace cannot exist without Justice",  stressed also this week at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, French Minister on Human Rights, Mrs Rama YADE.
