*Strasbourg/Critical News-ViewPoint/-  New Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte's "flip-flop" on Russia's return back to a fully-fledged "G-8", instead of the current, curtailed and diminished "G-7", (provoked since 2014 by Former POTUS Barack Hussein Obama's "Miss Nuland"-monitored aufull Mess in Ukraine, previously a Peaceful and promising, European Culture Country), is not clear :


- Didn't the Italian People's large Majority vote to put, at last, an End to "Sanctions" against Russia, which Divided the European Continent and still Limit its Economic/Scientific and Technological Development, (as even the New Rome Government's explicitly Agreed Program reads) ?


- Why Turkey, which is notoriously accustomed to do very much Worse things than Russia, (from Genocides, to "Ethnic Cleansings", Military Invasions/Occupations, Massive and brutal Violations of Human Rights, local/regional and national Democracy trampled underfoot, Armed Bullying and War Threats, etc), is getting, these same years, instead of "Sanctions", on the Contrary, ...+3,5 Billions € in full Grants each Year, from EU Taxpayers' Money, (in addition to its "usual" 1 Billion €, i.e. a bulk of more than +4,5 Billions € in yearly Grants), while also being still Invited to "G-20" Summits ?...


- Most Italian Newspapers were proudly publishing Frontpage Headline News on Conte's endorsement of US President Trump's call for Russia to get back Home inside a "G-8", when, suddenly, it was announced that, in fact, at the last minute, Conte would have yielded under pressure...


But Don Trump's earlier relevant statement also, significantly, stressed that, in fact, - "We have a World to run !"


And he, notoriously, said that, by a Double Coincidence :


-  Both the Same Day that Deadly Islamist Terrorists of ISIL's Cowards who Target even innocent Civilian People, after a Recent Resurgence of a New Series of Bloody Attacks throughout Europe, in Afghanistan, etc., (since the Diversion provoked by Turkey's Military Invasion and Occupation of Syria's Kurdish Canton of Afrin on 2018), re-started anew to Invade and Occupy a City, near Syria's Borderline with Iraq;


- and at the Eve of the forthcoming, Crucial Singapore Summit with Northern Korea's Leader Kim Jong-un, scheduled for the 12th of June, from which depends if the World will manage to make an Historic breakthrough for Peace and stability, or fall back to an even more Dangerous Cold War era with the addition of unstable Nuclear Weapons' Tensions.


In such a Context, wouldn't a "traditional" fully-fledged "G-8", bringing Back Russia Together with the EU, USA, Canada and Japan, (if not, sooner or later, even a New ..."G-9", bringing In also China - as, inter alia, also f.ex. France had suggested as a Possible development, already as early as since the May 2011 "G-8" Summit in Deauville, during a Press Conference), be obviously Helpful in order to turn this mechanism into a Really "Global" one, and, eventually, give a Hand for a Succesful Preparation of that Crucial USA - N.Korea Summit, from which depends Global Peace and prevention of Nuclear Weapons' course threatening desastrous clashes ?


The Reply is naturaly "Yes", since this is, in practice, a Last Chance for Global Diplomacy among the Biggest Countries on Earth, (with the EU playing also a Useful Role in World Affairs), to try, all Together, to Help Save our Planet from UnPrecedented Risks of Nuclear Tensions and Threats.


Where is, these same Days, Russian President Vladimir Putin ? Visiting ...China, to meet with President Xi Jiping, inaugurate a High-Speed Train Link, etc. But, wouldn't it be Better, if these Leaders (notoriously Influent also vis a vis Northern Korea, etc), were, Now, Meeting and Exchanging Together with the EU, USA, Japan and Canada, etc., inter alia, also on How to Help, all Together, to Prepare a Succesful Negotiation and Deal with N.Korea's President Kim, on the occasion of the forthcoming, Crucial Singapore Meeting with USA's new President Don Trump, able to Safeguard World Peace ?


German Chancelor Angie Merkel, certainly, cannot forget that her initial Mentor, and Long-Time close Ally, the Historic former Chancelor Helmut Kohl, who playe a Key Role Both for the ReUnification of Europe after 1989, and EU Integration in the 1990ies, had notoriously Regretted and Criticized the Exclusion of Russia from the former "G-8" Summit format, (as f.ex. that of Heiligendam, back on 2007, that Merkel Chaired hershelf : Comp. "Eurofora" co-Founder's NewsReports from the spot, then Published mainly by "TCWeekly", etc).


Neither could, the French President Emmanuel Macron ignore his Historic predecessor, General De Gaulle's famous Plaidoyerie for "a Great Europe, extending from tha Atlantic Ocean, up to the Ural Mountains", and well beyond...


And the current "G-7" Host Country, Canada, also certainly canNot Neglect the Fact that, (in addition to Japan, etc), it's also, f.ex., ...Toronto City which is much Closer to Northern Korea's eventual Nuclear Rockets, than USA's Washington D.C. ...


So that, in fact, almost Everybody involved in those "Global" Summits, has, in one way or another, a Real Interest and Duty to become Helpful for World Peace, by contributing whatever is possible, appropriate and necessary for that Noble Aim, in real practice, hic and nunc.

Facing a 70% Abstention threat in 2009 Election, EU endorses EuroFora's idea for Citizens' debates on crucial EU decisions !

- Different views on "Europe's Future", should be debated among Citizens at June 2009 EU Elections, thanks to political Parties' "Manifestos", says EU Parliament's Report


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
A main idea, initiated and promoted by EuroFora's founders since 1997: the vital need to develop European Citizens' democratic right to actively participate in multilingual debates on EU decisions, is formally endorsed by the EU from 2009 !

The move is a key attempt to overcome "catastrophic" Polls which warn that only ...30% of Citizens are ready to vote in the forthcoming June 2009 EU Election !  This was revealed by EU Commission's vice-president, in charge of Communication policy, Margot Wallstrom, during a "hot" meeting of EU Parliament's Committee on Culture and Education, during the December 2008 Strasbourg session.

Wallstrom faced criticism, but also suggestions from various MEPs, naturally worried by Abstention threats which herself found even "worse" than in 1999 or 2004...

A Report on "Active Dialogue with Citizens",examined at the same time, presented some useful practical tips, on "facilitating Interviews"; etc., but also a  potentialy important call to "incorporate the conclusions of ...debates...into (EU) policies, and take into consideration the expectations that Citizens have of the EU when deciding". An amendment even implies that Citizens' participation in debates on EU decisions is a democratic "Right".

More importantly, it finds that  a Debate "on the Future of Europe", (as French President Nicolas Sarkozy has asked since 2007), would be a good idea " for the 2009 European parliamentary Elections", because "clarifying the political differences between the EU political parties would help citizens to identify themselves with, and choose between various concepts", for which "all parties (should) present their Manifesto".

A "Joint political declaration on Communicating Europe in Partnership", co-signed by "the European Parliament, Council and ... Commission", confirms that they "attach the utmost importance to improving communication on EU issues", by "enabling European citizens to exercise their right to participate in the democratic life of the Union, in which decisions are taken as openly as possible and as closely as possible to the citizens, observing the principles of pluralism, participation, openness and transparency".

This should "enable Citizens to exercise their right to express their views and to participate actively in the public Debate on European Union issues", while also "promoting the respect of multilingualism". In this regard, EU confirms its "wish to develop synergies with national, regional and local authorities as well as with representatives of Civil Society".

    It's since 1997 that a group of EuroFora's founders have officially presented a pioneer Project (then called "EIW", for "Europe in the World"), which aimed to develop Strasbourg's "Polyphonic music", by providing "Interactive information", on "main issues ... during the Decision-making process of European Organizations which engage in Transparent and Public Democratic Debates"

    This should be done, inter alia, by "exploring the potential of New Communication Tools (mainly Internet)", as well as classic-form debates, the 1997 EIW pioneer project's anounced in its "Synopsis". It was formally "accepted for evaluation" by EU Commission in Brussels in order to be examined for a grant in the framework of the "Research/Technology/Development (RTD) Programme in the field of Information Technologies", then called "ESPRIT", as a "Best Practice Pilot Project".

        But the vital, urgent Political need for EU to search new, efficient ways to reach the People and interact with European Citizens, was really felt in Brussels and elsewhere only after the unprecedented in History 1999 and 2004 Majority Abstention in EU Elections, followed by 3 "NO" in Referenda in France, the Netherlands and Ireland, on 2005 and 2008...
    In this New Political Landscape, we prepared a new, actualised and more developed version of our initial idea, in a simplified and more efficient form, thanks also to a large Experience accumulated during many years of EU/CoE/UNO Press work and Multi-lingual debates, with the New project "EuroFora" :

    On 2006 we presented in Public its main lines during Questions/Replies that we raised at two Press Conferences by EU Commission President, Jose Baroso, and mainly EU Commission's vice-President, in charge of Communication policy, Margot Wallstrom, together with EU Parliament's vice-president, Alejo Vidal-Quadras, in Strasbourg, (Videos available), and we reminded it at various brief contacts with Commissioner Wallstrom in 2007 and 2008.

    Meanwhile, a new Text was also presented for "EuroFora" Project mainly to certain Political and other personalities, at European, National or Regional/Local level, mainly in 2007, but also in 2008..

    Now, after the unexpected 2008 Irish "NO", and before the 2009 EU Elections, which are due to be of exceptionally crucial importance for Europe's Future, the moment has obviously come to launch that project, progressively, but in real practice.

    Whoever really cares for Europe and its Citizens is welcome to join, in one way or another. Only anti-European, anti-democratic, obscure or ignorant groups might oppose or attempt to "steal" and deviate the main idea.

    But European Citizens, incited by enlightened political leaders, are those who will finally write the real History.

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 ?
