*Hambourg/(Germany)/G20 Summit/Angelo Marcopolo/- An exceptionaly "Tight" "in" and "off" Program just started to Unfold overNight from the Eve of G20 Summit of Heads of State and Government in Germany's North-Western MegaCity of River/SeaPort of Hambourg:

From the Afternoon, until Late Night, several...Trans-Continental "Duos" arrived at the Regional Airport, one after the other : F.ex. Idonesian President Joko Widodo and his wife, closely Followed by UK's Prime Minister, Theresa May. And, Later on, Mexican President Enrique Piena Nieto, before Russian President, Vladimir Putin, (just before MidNight), and so on.


Even a tasty ...Coffee served to Journalists, including "Eurofora", at G20's International Media Center, was made (in Germany) out Seeds coming from 3 or 4 Different Continents of the World, an NGO representative Lady who was distributing the relevant specimens and documentation, told "Eurofora"...

----------

The move had been Intensively Prepared by a lot of Earlier Top Meetings : F.ex. German Chancellor Angie Merkel, (the Host of this Annual Mega-Event for 2017), had Invited, previously, all EU Member States' Leaders in Berlin, for coordnination; Chinese President, Xi Jiping, visited Earlier, Moscow and Berlin: US President Don Trump, made a Long Series of relevant Phone Calls from the White House, just before his departure, and visited at the eve, Poland, at abOther Summit of Different, European Countries, (making, by the way, also, a landmark Speech there, (for the Western Civilisation's survival, etc).

Tonight, the Japanese Delegation was the 1st to Open the (Mediatic) Fire, with the earliest Press Briefing here, on the Meeting that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, just had with US President Don Trump, and New South Corean President Moon Jae-In, where North Korea dispute was at the Limelight, as a Japanese source told "Eurofora".


Abe is due to meet also Putin on Saturday, who Marks this 2017 G20 Summit with his 1st personal meeting with New US President Trump, already Tomorrow, Friday, July 7, 2017, at about 3 p.m., as Russian sources told "Eurofora": an Event expected to be closely followed by a lot of collegues...

Merkel reportedly Hosts also a "Normandie" format Trilateral meeting with Putin and Macron, at the Morning of the Concluding Day, Saturday, July 8. (While the New French President's expected 1st meeting with the Chinese President Xi Jiping, might also Mark this 2017 "G20" Summit).


Meanwhile, for the First Time, the Starting Point of this G20 will be a Discussion and Working Session on the Fight against Terrorism, given also the Recent multiplication of Deadly Islamist Terrorist Attacks in Europe, (mainly at the UK), and in Damas (Syria),but also Elsewhere in the World, not only at Afghanistan, but even on...Philippines, etc.

As for Economic Growth, Trade and Employment, (which were the No 1 Issue for G20, when it had been Created, in the middle of the 2008-2009 Economic and Financial Global Crisis),they are due to be discussed ...over Lunch time, also Tomorrow, July 7.But a comparatively ..."Lighter", and less "bumpy", Lunch is prepared for the Next Day, Saturday July 8, with easier and interesting Discussions on Digital Technologies, Women empowrement, etc.


European and International observers also expect New UNO's Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, venue and appreciations, just after his Experience, Today, at a Crucial Political Multilateral Conference on Cyprus' issue, (together with Foreign Ministers from Turkey, Greece, the UK, and the Republicof Cprus, the EU acting as an infuential Observer, as well as the Leaders of the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot Communities).


But an overall Impression that, in general, the available Time is "Tight", and exceptionaly "Dense", these Days here, seems to be an ambient Feeling.


In this Context, it's obviously Astonishing to witness the UnPrecedented, Negative spectacle of at least certain Accredited Journalists - who were apparently MisInformed by some Official sources, (unless something Else happened here), to Drop any Independent Means of Transport, (Car, motorcycle, bicycle, etc), and use Only "Public Transport" means, in order to come and go at the International Medias Centre - to be Scandalously ' and Atrociously ...Blocked for almost 3 Anxious Hours, Standing up under a heavy Summer Heat,     immediately after Arriving (exhausted, without even Time to sleep, after an exceptionaly Overloaded period, both in Brussels and in Strasbourg, before Hambourg, and pending Crans-Montana, etc), since All Public Transports to the IMC, even TAXIs (sic!), etc, had curiously ..."Vanished", et the Nearest  to the Event Railroad Station !


Indeed, there  wasn't even anyone to simply inform, seriously and clearly, on what happened, and how could accredited Journalists, at least Access the Press Cente by Walking a long and complicated Distance of more than 1 km, with zig-zags, Lifting Heavy luggage, etc., at an Unknown place...Not even when the Trapped Victims were almost Handicaped, obvioudsly walking only with atrocious Pains, and Crutches...


Something Never seen before, at any other (among many) Summits, both in Germany, and elsewhere in Europe, even at NewYork, etc;
It's only after almost 3  Hours Wasted, in Atrocioius Circumstances, Anxiety, etc, (and while some unrelated Civilian People started to Gather around, trying vainly to help, and asking what was going on, that we managed to Call at...Berlin, in the Federal German Government's Press Office, where someone gave the Mobile Numbers of certain Press Officers on the spot, who accepted to, at last, send a Shuttle to the  closest Railroad Station...


But, later-on, at this Evening, it all Started again : Contrary to previous kind Proposals, from a Shuttle Driver, to Help also at a reportedly Dangerous Night, to reach the Hotel, at the other side of the City, with Heavy Luggages, Pains and crunches, etc, and again Deprived of any "Public Transport", (Contrary to the Misleading "Advises", officialy given previously, by the Competent Athorities : Comp. supra), after Keeping for Hours, Standing up Exhausted, to Wait and Wait, this time Vainly, for any kind of Urgent Help with Any kind of Transport, (as some were Telling us to "wait", again and again), Finally, we had to Dare Walk for Kilometers, through an Unknown and Dangerous area in the Dark of the Night, already obviously Exhausted by the Previous ill-treatments, with Heavy luggages, atrocious Pains, moving with Crunches, for Too Many and Long Hours, through Never-Ending huge Avenues,  until we manaded, at last, to reach our Hotel, at about ...4 a.m. in the early "Morning" (i.e. withOut any Time to Sleep) !...

 
 20170707_024827_400


During more than 24 Years of European/International Press Activities, including Many Summits, almost everywhere, even G8, G7, G20, etc., Both in Germany and in France, throughout almost All Europe, also at New York, etc, we've NEVER seen such Strange,  Heavy, Damaging and apparently Unexplained Obstacles !


F.ex., all Other Times, German (Federal and/or Local) and/or French Authorities, had put at the service of Journalists, either Shuttles (f.ex. in Bavaria, for Elmau Castle's "G7" Summit on 2015, and in Deauville, for the 2011 "G8" Summit), or, at least, an Old Bus, (f.ex. at Heiligendam, in Pomerania, 2007 "G8" Summit, etc), unless they had Clearly Warned about the precisely Blocked ares, and a Total Absence of Public Transport, nor Taxis, there, sufficiently on Time, so that Journalists could have been Prepared to have, at least, a Bicycle ready, or organize a venue Before such a Blocade, and find an Hotel inside and Near the Events' area (f.ex. at the November 2011, "G20"  Summit in Cannes), etc.


=> Apparently, there might be certain Exceptionaly Important Political Stakes, now, at this 2017 "G20" Summit in Hambourg, for some to apparently Attempt to slyly Obstruct Free and Efficient Press Contacts and Reporting, at such a level...

>>> One more reason, for all interested Collegues, to really Try to Focus on this 2017 "G20" Summit's main points of Substance (and surrounding Topical Political Events) !

*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.
