*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).

    - 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.

    - "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...

    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.


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

    + 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".

     - 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.

Former "Green-Red" German government's Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer's job at the controversial Turkish pipeline "Nabucco" was denounced as "not proper", "very bad", and "incompatible with Democracy", by the new President of EU Parliament's EuroLeft Group, German Lothar Bisky, replying to an "EuroFora" question.

For once, criticism of Joschka Fischer's doings with Turkey affecting Europe, didn't come only from the Center-Right of the political spectrum, but even from his Left side : The experienced Bisky, who has been chairing all over 1993-2009 the PDS - Die Linke party :  

- "Former Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer got involved in dealings with oil-gaz business in a foreign country, Turkey, and its controversial Nabucco pipeline. This raises questions about Democracy, also because of the well known problems of Human Rights violations in that country. Do you thing that this might be abused in order to cover up and close EU's eyes on Human Rights violations ?", "EuroFora" asked Bisky.

imag0025_400_01

- "Nabucco pipeline is (only) at the planning stage". And "there are some difficulties",  he observed from the start. But "'I don't want to get into the details of Nabucco pipeline, because I don't think that there is any point for it at the moment".
 
At any case,  "we  (EU Parliament's EuroLeft Group) strongly believe that Politicians should not get involved in the Energy Business, and all these commercial transactions", President Bisky declared on the Joschka Fiischer's affair.

- "We feel that it's something that shouldn't be done. It's not proper !"           

- "We don't think that it's compatible with Democracy either, and it gets politics into a very Bad track", Bisky went on to denounce.
                                                                                                                                                                        
- "EuroLeft  and "Die Linke" always spoke against that, saying that politicians should not get directly into the arms of private enterprises"

- "It is pretty bad if a former Minister takes a job f.ex. in a major Energy producer. So, it's an issue if a Minister who may have seen excellent opportunities, subsequently gets personally grasp of them, in very serious parts of the economy, once he has given up his (Government) job."

- "It doesn't really make politics in general look any better'", Bisky concluded.

imag0935_400

Earlier, this week in Strasbourg, other Journalists had also raised critical questions on former Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer's involvement in the conroversial Turkish Nabucco pipeline to the President of his own EuroParty : Kohn-Bendit of the "Greens", who, contrary to Bisky, tried to find excuses for Fischer, while criticizing his long-time partner, Schroeder for having done a similar move :

- "Shroeder was chancellor", and he "negociated" with "Russians", who gave him a job only "3 Months" after he resigned from the Government. While "Joschka Fischer", on the contrary, got a job with the controversial Turkish Nabucco pipeline only "4 Years after" he left the Government. "He didn't negociate Nabucco", so I have "no objection", Kohn Bendit claimed.

But, many Facts indicate the contrary :

Joschka Fischer was Foreign Minister in Germany from 1999 up to 2005 : I.e. from the year that EU took the controversial decision to give Turkey a "Candidate" status, until he year it started controversial "accession negotiations, (later declared "open-ended" after Sarkozy-Merkel's arrival from 2005-2007).

During that period was prepared the controversial so-called "Annan" Plan (in fact, drafted by others and attributed afterwards to the former UN SG) on Cyprus, which failed after a Popular Referendum said "No" on 2004 with a large Majoriy of 3/4 : 75%. Mainly because it was criticized for making too much concessions to the Turkish side :  Particularly by restricting Greek Cypriot Refugees' Human Right to return to their ancestral Land and/or get restitution of their Familiy Homes and private properties, usurpated by Ankara's Army since the 1974 militay invasion and continuing occupation of the northern part of Cyprus. And by weakening the Central Government, leaving to 2 "constituent States" so much powers and separate interests that more conflicts appeared inevitable, provoking the danger of a break-down in the foreseable future, with more crisis, troubles, perhaps bloodshed, etc., instead of creating an harmoniously integrated, really one federal State.

The controversial Plan was finalized on March-April 2004 at Burgenstock (Switzerland), curiously in the presence of an Envoy by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany, then governed by Joschka Fischer, but in the absence of a French and not even an European Union's Envoy, contrary to what was usually practiced on similar occasions in Switzerland (fex. in 1997 at Montreux, in 2000 at Geneva, etc).

Turkey notoriously exploited the failure of the "Annan" Plan in order to convince the EU to decide to start accession Negotiations on December 2004. This provoked an unprecedented series of Institutional Crisis inside the EU, shortly afterwards, when French and Dutch People rejected, 2 popular EuroReferenda by a majority "'No" vote to the EU Constitutional Treaty on 2005, aggraveted in 2004 a Majority Abstention to EU Elections, etc., followed by the recent Irish "No", etc.

"Nabucco" Gas pipeline was notoriously planned since ..2002. It follows an even earlier idea, for an Oil pipeline Baku-Ceyhun, which started to be prepared on 1999-2001 and was meanwhile recently completed.  

So, facts indicate that what is now at stake is based on decisions made during Joschka Fischer's term as former Foreign Minister, closely interested in Turkey's controversial EU-bid.

To the point that he now practically ...switched jobs with a poliician from Turkey, (the State which pays today openly Joschka Fischer), Mr. Ozdemir, who came earlier in Germany, got fast the nationality, and became EiuroMP in a few years, continuing now as head of the "Greens" in Germany, i.e. in Joschka's former job !...

Such astonishing facts risk, unfotunately, to give to German politician Lothar Bisky's criticism of  representative Democracy a topical meaning :

 - "We (EuroLeft Group) think that what is really at stake is Democracy. It's not only about Gas Pipelines or Energy sources", President Lothar Bisky went on to add in his reply to "EuroFora"'s question on Joscka Fischer's personal interests in the controversial Turkish "Nabuco" pipeline.

Such facts, "make People get more distance from Politics. ...People had had enough, and they are fed up !".

- "That's why we (EuroParliament's "EuroLeft" Group) want to strengthen Direct Democracy in Europe. Citizens should be involved in the (EU) Decision-making. In the end of the day, it's not going to help anyone if Politicians are always taking decisions, without involving Citizens. We want to give a voice to the People of Europe. They've got to have their say in the decisions that are taken. That's one of our absolutely fixed and steadfast views. We want more Direct Democracy in Europe. That's how it can become more effective and stronger", he concluded.
