*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).

    - "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".

     - "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.


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

tv_fillon_ok_eurofora_screenshot_400


    + 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.

Speaking exclusively to "EuroFora", the New EU Parliament's President, former Polish Prime Minister, ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Jerzy Busek, welcomed proposals by EuroFora about innovative ways for EU Citizens to attend EU debates before important final decisions which affect people's lives.

- "We (EU Parliament) must be transparent", Buzek stressed from the outset.  "We must have clear answers also for delicate questions. If we don't touch a problem, you must know why, and when shall we decide in the nearest future".. "Because "we (EU) must think about Europeans, first of all : They don't understand well what is going on in the EU. So, it's our duty to inform them, to make discussions here more interesting".

"EuroFora" congratulated President Buzek for the anouncement he made, from the 1st day of his election in Strasbourg (on Tuesday, 14 July 2009), on his intention to make  transparent debates, exchanges of views, etc. before the final adoption of decisions in EU Parliament's Plenary, when issues are evolving inside Committees, (See earlier publication).

And we reminded, in this regard, that "EuroFora" has been advocating a project for EU Citizens' active involvement in pluralist EU debates before important EU decisions, since more than a Decade : 1997-2007+

- "Thank you. We (EU Parliament), indeed, have exciting debates", Buzek replied. But, in practice, "without a possibility for our Citizens to see them, not even by the Press, the Radio or TV, etc., because it is in Committees", he regreted.

- "But, they (i.e. Media, Citizens, etc) might interact with you, with MEPs, etc, May be we can imagine something", "EuroFora" proposed.

- "Yes, (but) it needs, a quite new idea", Buzed observed.

- "Why not through some innovations ?", "EuroFora" suggested.

- "Innovation ? That's it. Fantastic  New Information Technologies !", Buzek realized.

- "Precisely, "EuroFora" has such a project, since more than a Decade (1997-2009), to use new technologies for public debates before major EU decisions are taken", we reminded.

- "If you have such proposals, please come to us, come to us. We must" do something, agreed the new EU Parliamen's President.

buzek_chairing_400 

    This fits with Buzek's main stance, expressed at EU Parliament's plenary earlier this week in Strasbourg, that the European Union must succeed to overcome a "Crisis of Trust" vis a vis EU Citizens. (See previous EuroFora publication).

    For that purpose, obviously information and debates are valuable, but purely instrumental, procedural means which can help focus on, and highlight a substantial content, attractive to EU Citizens, which needs to be determined by other, political, and not mediatic factors.  

    Buzek spoke about the urgent need to overcome the Global Economic Crisis,  the struggle for Human and Civic Rights, Democracy, etc., the Eastern Partnership, links with Russia, strategic partnership with USA and emerging countries, etc.

    But he also used (while speaking both to "EuroFora" and other Media) the expression : "The Europeans", for EU Citizens. This points right towards what several important EU leaders (including French President Sarkozy, German Chancellor Merkel, etc) have started to highlight particularly during the recent years : That there is a vital need, and an historic opportunity, for the development of a European Conscience, to stimulate e renaissance of a European Identity able to attract Popular support, for the EU to become a strong player in a Multopolar World : In other words, the revitalisation of a project for a "Political Europe".

    By a coincidence, this was indirectly but surely reminded, earlier in Strasbourg, by another ... Busek (this time with a "s") : 

busekcoe_400

    Speaking to more than 650 participants from CoE's member countries, at the conclusion of the 2009 Summer University of its Political Schools, Erhard Busek, (with an "s"), former vice-Chancellor of Austria and EU Coordinator for South-Eastern Europe, pointed at the current need to revitalize Europe's "Identity", forged by Greek philosophy and Roman Law, Christian values and Enlightment's ideas, etc. through the ages.     

- "We have almost the same name with Jerzy Buzek (EU Parliament's new President, who is a former Polish Prime Minister), because both our Families come ...from  the same village, located at the Heart of Europe, which was often shared between Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic. But my family emmigrated a long time ago to Austria, while Jerzy Buzek's family remained in Poland", explained f. vice-Chancellor Erhard Busek to "EuroFora".   

 An astonishingly concrete and simple example of European Integration from the grassroots : Starting by EU Citizens, i.e. those "Europeans", that EU Parliament's new President, Jerzy Buzek (this time with a "z"), wants to bring alongside MEP's decision-making proces, (according to "EuroFora"'s main idea : Comp. supra)...
