*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- The Son of Murdered Robert Kennedy, Presidential Candidate/Former Justice Minister, and Nephew of Also Murdered US President John Kennedy, Robert Francis Kennedy Jr., an Environment Lawyer and Writer, speaking Today at a Larger than Expected Popular Gathering in Berlin on the Virus and Human Rights, After a Key Press Conference Yesterday, Strongly Denounced what he Named as "Global Totalitarianism" Nowadays, Urging for "Real Science" and to Protect "Democracy" and "Human Race", Lively Stimulating a Numerous Audience, which, according to the Police, reached at least 38.000 Demonstrators, while, according to Organisers and/or certain Videos, would approach Hundreds of Thousands perhaps 1 Million, "from allover Europe", who remained for several Hours Peacefully at the Tiergarten, (Before a collective "Social Distancing" Event at the Symbolic Brandenburg Gate), mainly Hearing and Applauding the Read-Out of the German Constitution's key reference to "Human Dignity", (a Favorite of Chancellor Angie Merkel : See, f.ex. ..., etc), as well as on relevant Human and Democratic Rights steming from it.

    Even if he is considered to Stay Near the Center-Left "Democratic" Party, as well as with an Obvious Inclination towards the "Greens", Robert Francis Kennedy Jr., (who came in Germany Also in order to Launch a European Branch of the "Children's Health Defense" Global Organisation that he Heads in the US), has been, reportedly, Approached by the White House, during the current USA President Don Trump, a Conservative from the Republican Party, in view of a possible Participation to a Group of Experts on "the Safety of Vaccines", (that interests him a lot), i.e. an Issue which, during the present Virus' Crisis, Obviously is due to Become very Topical, quite Soon.

 rfkennedy_at_berlin_rally_3_greetings_matuschewski_videoeurofora_screenshot_400

    Meawhile, Regardless of the Fact that Most Establishment's Medias insist to Narrow their Scope regarding that Event, Only on an alleged Controversy about "Masks" and/or "Social Distancing", among various Anti-Virus' Measures, or, even More, on some alleged "Far Right" Small Groups of Demonstrators, who reportedly Went, (After the End of that Long and Massive Popular Gathering at Tiergarten), towards Bundestag's External Stair-case, (etc), resulting in the Intervention of Local Police, currently Controlled by the Socialist Party at Berlin's City, (which had Initially Prohibited the Demonstration, Authorized later by a Court of Justice), nevertheless, withOut taking any part at all in such Side-Controversies, of Obvious Political link to Germany's Internal Affairs, practically at the Eve of the Forthcoming 2021 National Elections, and Given Also that a Main Co-Organizer of that Event, who Also Invited Kennedy to Berlin,  is an Association called "QuerDenken", (i.e. "Think Differently"), Headquartered at Nearby Stuttgart, and reportedly (at least according to French Medias) Rejecting Any "Extremism", Both from the Right and from the Left, while being "Open" to the Eventual Participation, at its events, of All Citizens, regardless of their possible political inclinations, "Eurofora" Believes that RFK's Speech (whatever one might Think for this or that among its Various Points) certainly has a NewsWorthy Interest "per se", as an Exceptional, Topical Event, and Deserves to be Published, for the Information of Our European Society, and that of Other Countries, on several Big Issues of Importance Nowadays, World-wide.

(A) Robert Francis Kennedy Jr., at Berlin's Popular Public Meeting : Against "Global Totalitarianism" !

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

rfkennedy_at_berlin_rally_5_speaking_matuschewski_videoeurofora_screenshot_400 

 - "USA Newspapers said that I came here to Speak to 5.000 Nazis !"..., he Teased them from the outset.

 - "Tomorrow, they will say that I Spoke, May be, (Only) to ...3 or 5.000 Nazis"...

(NDLR : He said that just after the Screen had shown a Mega-Gothering of Many Tens - perhaps Hundreds of - Thousands of People)...

rfkennedy_at_berlin_rally_7_people_overview_b_matuschewski_videoeurofora_screenshot_400 

- "But, I Look at these People, and I See the Opposite of Nazism !" These are People who Speak about Democracy, who Want Open Government".

- "People who Want Leaders that WoN't Lie to them !"

- People who doN't want Leaders to Impose Arbitrary Rules or Regulations, to Orchestrate the Obedience of the Population".

- "They Want Leaders who have No Financial relations with the Pharmaceutical Industry, (Contrary, f.ex. to Former "Socialist/Liberal" POTUS Barack Hussein Obama, who had Mostly Big "Bio-Tech" Corporations among his pre-Electoral Funders, since 2008, and even on 2012), who are Working for Us (the People), and Not for the Big Pharma" (loudly Applauded).

berlin_rally_29.8.2020_6___corrupted_politicians_condemned__kenfm_video__eurofora_screenshot_400 

- ... "Who Care about Our Children's Health, and Not about Pharmaceutical Profits, or Government Contol".

 - "When I Look at this Croud, I See All Flags from Europe : I See People of Every Color, from Every Nation, Every Religion". "All Caring about Human Dignity". About Children's Health. About Political Freedom. => This is the Opposite of Nazism !"

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

- But, Some "Governments Love Pandemics ... For the Same Reason, they Love Horror"... Because "that Gives them the ability to Impose Controls on the Population, that, Otherwise, ,the Population would Never Accept ! They create Mechanisms for Imposing Obedience". But "Such Institutions can Impose Obedience Because of Fear", he Denounced.

- "It's a Mystery to me, among all those Big, Important People, like Bill Gates, ("Microsoft"s Chief, including Notorious Mass Spying by the Latest "Windows" Software, and Wealthy Backer of Worldwide Vaccinations Imposed under Threat of "Fatal" Deadly Virus Epidemics), and Tony Fauci, (Carter-Appointed Chief of Infectious Diseases' Public Administration and Research, Member of White House's Group of Experts on the Virus, reportedly Seeking Vainly to Find a Vaccine against AIDs during More than ...40 Years !), "have been Planning and Thinking about such a Pandemic, Since Decades. Planning how we would all be Safe, when it finally comes". "And Yet, Now that it's here, they doN't even seem to know what they are Talking about !"...

- "[Noise]  ..They are Making it Up, as they are going on", F.ex., "They are Inventing Numbers. They canNot Tell you What the case of Mortality Rate for COVID is..., They CanNot Even Give us a PCR Test that actualy Works. They have to Change the Definition of COVID in Death Certificates, Constantly, to Make it look even More Dangerous". => So that, "the Only One Thing they are Good at, is Pumping up Fear..."

rfkennedy_at_berlin_rally_8_speaking_matuschewski_videoeurofora_screenshot_400 

- About "75 Years ago", "Hermann Goering Testified at a Hearing in the Nuremberg Trial. And he was Asked ;  - <<How did you make the German People go along with it ?>> ... And he said : It's a very Easy thing : It has Nothing to do with NAZISM. It has to do with Human Nature. You can do this in a Nazi Regime. You can do it in a Socialist Regime. You can do it in a Communist Regime. You can do it in a Monarchy, and in a Democracy : The Only thing that can Make People behave as Slaves, is Fear !" So that, "if you look around to Find Something to Scare them, you Can do Anything"...

- "50 Years Ago, My Oncle, John Kennedy, came to This City (Berlin)" [Loud Applause] "Because Berlin was the Front-Line against Totalitarianism". "Now that I Come, Berlin is the Front-Line against Global Totalitarianism !", Robert Francis Kennedy Jr. Denounced Today, (triggering Lively Popular Echoes, amidst "Bravo !" cries and Strong Applauding among the German People). So "All of You Who are Here, can Proudly Say, once Again :  : - "Ich Bin Ein Berliner !"

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

+ "I Must say One More thing :  - Some (in the Establishment) "have Not done a Good Job in Protecting the Public Health". But, (on the Contrary), they have done a Very Nice Job by Using the Confinement to Bring "5G" (Controversial Huge EM Waves' New Network) inside All Our Communities"... Preparing to Tranfert All Our Data, and even to push towards a Digital Currency, ... which would be the Beginning of Slavery !". "Because if they Monitor your Bank Account, then, they could Control also All your Acts", he Warned, (amidst Loud "Boos" from Many People).

- "We all See our Televisions' Ads telling us that <<"5G" is Coming here. It's a Great Thing, It's gonna Change Your Lives. Make Your Lives Better>>. ... "I can't wait for this !", he Joked. F.ex., Because "I'm going to Download a Video Game in 6 Seconds, Instead of 16 Seconds", he added with Irony...

rfkennedy_at_berlin_rally_9_speaking_5g_matuschewski_videoeurofora_screenshot_400 

- But, "Is that Why they are Paying 5 Trillions $ for 5G ?", RFK Wondered. - "No ! The Reason is for Surveillance and Data Harvesting... It's Not For You and Me. It's For Bill Gates, and Zuckenberg, and Bezos, (CEOs of the GAFAM) and all Other Millionaires"

- "With that", f.ex., "Bill Gates has Boasted that his Satellites' Fleet would be Able to Look at Every Square Inch of the Planet, 24 Hours a Day", he Denounced.

+ And, "that's Only the Beginning ! He is Also going to be able to Follow You through All of Your Smart Devices, through BioMetric Face Recognition, through Your GPS". Moreover, "You think that "Alexa" (Microsoft "Windows 10" Software) is Working For You"... (But, in Fact) "She's Not Working For You, (on the Contrary), she is Working for Bill Gates, and Spying On You !", RFK Jr. Warned.

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

    - As for "the Pandemic", it "is a Crisis of Conveniance for the Elite, who are Dictating these Policies", since "it Gives them a possibility to Obliterate the Middle Class, to Destroy the Institutions of Democracy, To Shift All of Our Wealth, of All of Us, to a Handfull of Millionaires", in order "to Make them more Rich, While ImPoverishing the rest of Us", he Denounced, (apparently eyeing just a Part of a much Bigger Reality at Stake)...

rfkennedy_at_berlin_rally_4_saluting_matuschewski_videoeurofora_screenshot_400 

- "And the Only thing, Between Them, and Our Children, is This Croud" of People, "who has come to Berlin". "We are Telling them, Here, Today" : - <<You are Not going to Take Away our Freedoms, you are Not gonna Poison our Children, (because) We are going to Demand our Democracy Back !".    "Thank You all very much For Fighting", he concluded

(B) Robert Francis Kennedy Jr. at Berlin's earlier Press Conference :  - "Real Science" for "Democracy" at "the Most Crucial Inflexion in History" for "Human Race" :

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

rfkennedy_at_berlin_press_conference_28.8.2020_acu2020_video__eurofora_screenshot_400 

 Nowadays, we are Faced with the Most Crucial Point in History for Democracy and Even for Humankind, pleaded RFK at a Press Conference Yesterday (28/8/2020), Urging for "Real Science" and "Peaceful" Defense of People's Health and Democratic Freedoms.

rfkennedys_children_health_defense_organisation_chd__eurofora__screenshot_400 

+ In Fact, Robert Francis Kennedy Jr. was Invited to Berlin Also for the Launch of the European Branch of the International "Childrens' Health Defense" Organisation, that he Heads in the USA, where he gave a Press Conference, Together with Various Young Allies from Germany, France, Belgium and Italy, at the Eve (28/8/2020) of Today's Popular Demonstration, where he Stressed some Important Topical Key-Points, related to the Virus' Pandemic and, More Widely, certain Risks against "Democracy' and "the Human Race", Nowadays :

rfkennedy_at_berlin_press_conference_28.8.2020__2__acu2020_video__eurofora_screenshot_400 

 - He Explained, from the Outset, that it all Started, for him, when he was making an Investigation on "Mercury"' Risks., in the Past.

- He Soon Found that "Mercury" was Often Used Even ...in several "Vaccines".

+ But, in Fact, the Problem was  much "More Wider", also Because, "in the USA", the competent Federal Administration, "CDC", had given certain "Excemptions" to Pharmaceutical Cmpanies, Initially Linked to the "History" of "Defense" Issues of a remote Past : It had "Lifted some Guarantees" of Safety, in order to "Gain Time" in case of "Bio-Attacks".

 - Moreover, around "1986, even Liability of Big Pharma was Limited", leaving "Not Enough Incentives for Compagnies to Make Vaccines Safe"...

++ In Addition, there were Also "Other Problems", and, particularly, a growing "Corruption in the Political System", related mainly to "Big Pharma", (almost as French Professor of Medicine Christian Perronne, has Notoriously Denounced, pointing, especially, to many Big Cmpanies' "Lobbyists in Brussels" attempting to Influence the EU).

rfkennedy_at_berlin_press_conference_28.8.2020__3__acu2020_video__eurofora_screenshot_400 

=> The US "Congress was Corrupted, Administrations Neutralized, Press Medias Sidelined" or "Captured", etc.  So that, "All Safeguards that Our (USA's) Founding Fathers had Created to Protect the People were Neutralized !", he Denounced.

+++ However, "in Fact, it's a Global Problem, as I realized while working on the "Monsanto" case (at the Courts), and concerns all our Democratic System" :

>>> Mainly "Big Pharma - More Powerful than Oil Industry -  Captured Politics and Runs Governments all over the World !", pointed out RFKennedy.

=> That's why, in order to Efficiently Launch his "Children's Health Defense" Organisation "in Europe", "We Need Honest, Brave, and Non-Conformist People", he urged.

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

rfkennedy_at_berlin_press_conference_28.8.2020__4__acu2020_video__eurofora_screenshot_400 

 - >>> In Fact, Recently, "something Extraordinary happened" :  Nowadays "we are at the Largest, Most Crucial Inflexion Point than Ever in Human History !", he stressed.

 - In the Past, "for Many Years, Totalitarist, Authoritarian States had used the Power of Fear, to engineed Compliance in Populations". F.ex.  "Goering, at the Nuremberg Trial", had said that "With Fear, you Can Make Human Beings do Anything you want. You can Make them Go to Slaughter like Sheep. You Can Make them Obey"... (See 29.8 Speech at the Tiergarten Rally).

 - But, then, "we (USA) were Lucky to have a Great Leader as Franklin Roosvelt, who Warned that "the Worst thing to Fear, is Fear itself !", Because "he Understood that Fear could Drive us to Totalitarianism".

=> Nevertheless, Today, "the Bio-Security Agenda of People Like Bill Gates and Antony Fauci, etc. and those Who Run the Global Economy, have Now a Power that No (National) Government can Match !"

 - In the Past, "for Hitler it was f.ex. the Jews. Others pointed at Bolsheviks. Some in Mexicans or Terrorists, etc. => They Asked to Relinquish and Give up our Human Rights, Civil Rights, and" Risking almost to "Walk like Sheep in the Abbattoir".

+ "Now they have another Source of Fear, which may give them the Most Pervasive and All Encompassing Power that they Ever had : Which is the Fear of Pandemics"...  

 - Several "Governments Love Pandemics, the Same as (some) States love Wars, as long as they Give them Power and Control and the Capacity to Impose Obedience on Human Beings", he Warned, (Reminding, inter alia, f.ex. Also CoE's and particularly ECHR's current Efforts to Limit and Prevent eventual Abuses of Human Rights, Rule of Law and/or Democracy Principles, during this Deadly Virus' Crisis, througout its 47 Member-States and beyond).

+ "And", Moreover, "Today, we have New (Communication) Technologies, which Give to the Governments the Capacity to Impose Controls on Populations" :

 - F.ex., inter alia, "we have <<5G>> which Creates a Surveillance State" :

 - "<<5G>> is Not Yet here in Europe, But they Tell you that it will make your Life Better, because (f.ex.) ...you could Download Video in 6 Seconds rather than 29"...

 - In Fact, "the Only Reason for this "5G" is that it Allows some Big Compagnies, like those of Bill Gates, Zuckenberg, Bezos, etc., to Harvest Our Data, to Listen to Your Conversations. In the Past, there Was No Means for them to Transfert that Data, to Monetise it, and to Sell it", he observed.

 - F.ex. "Bill Gates is Building a City in Arizona, with 80.000 People and a Data Center, Able to Take All Your Data, in the Alexa (Windows 10 Software) at your Home PC. Alexa is Not Working for You, it's Spying on you. Your Smart-Phone is Spying. And they have BioMetrics Facial Recognition System, Your GPS, etc. Satellites that Gates has ... Will be able to Monitor Every Square Inch on Earth 24 Hours a Day".

 ++ "And they have also anOther Invasion, which is Digital Currency". ... If they spread Digital Currency Everywhere, "... they would get Absolute Control, because they can Track (+ Tax) Any Transaction, and the Banks will be Able to Cash in Every Transfert and Every Transaction, and Will be Able to EnForce Ombedience, because If you Disobey, they could Shut Down Your Account, and you have No Access to Cash", he Warned.

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

+++ Concerning the Virus, "Many People argue that This Pandemic was, in Fact, a "PLAN-Demic" (Title of Recent Videos by some Dissidents Claiming that it was Artificially Fabricated in a Labo, as Also NOBEL Prize French Professor Montangnier, and former Twice-Elected President of Iran, Ahmadinejad, etc., See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/nobelprofonlabmadevirus.htmlhttp://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/ahmadinejadonlabomadevirus1.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/ahmadinejadonlabomadevirus2.html) , because it was Planned from the Outside, it was a Part of a ... Scheme", he noted.

 - But, "I CaN't Tell You the Answer to that, Because I have Not Enough Evidence", RFKennedy acknowledged honestly.

- It's true that, apparently, "a Lot of it Feels Very Planned to me, But I doN't Know" If it really was, or not.

 - However, there is something Sure : "If You Create these (f.ex. Digital/Com.) Mechanisms for Control, they Become Weapons for Obedience, for Authoritarian Regimes", he Warned.

=> "No matter how Beneficial" they might be (at the Beginning), "or (if) Innocent People created them", etc. Because, "Once Created, they Will be Abused !", he Warned.  "A 100% Guarantee that They Will be Abused"... (Mutatis-mutandis, f.ex., as the Nuclear Bomb, between the relevant Research, with Oppenheimer's Reserve, and Hiroshima, Until perhaps the Rosenbergs and former-USSR Opposed a credible Deterent Nuclear Dissuasion, or, Also, the Genetic Manipulations on 2 Babies Artificially Born on 11/2018, under Pretext that this would Prevent ...Aids, as the Culprit unsuccesfuly Claimed, before being Condemned to Prison on 12/2019).

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

rfkennedy_at_berlin_press_conference_28.8.2020__6__real_science_mb_acu2020_video__eurofora_screenshot_400 

+ In Addition, concerning the Virus, -"What Tony Fauci and Bill Gates tell us is Not <<The Science>>" !

=> - In Fact, "We Want to See the (Full scientific) Studies ! F.ex. We want to See the Studies on HCQ...", he stressed.  We Want to see Real Science !... And Real Risk Assessment", RFKennedy urged.

+++ Moreover, "I always Remember what "My Father (Murdered US Presiential Candidate Robert Kennedy, a strong Anti-Corruption former Minister of Justice) Told me when I was a Child : " - Several "<<People in Authority Lie !>>".

 rfk_jr._with_us_president_jfk_on_1961_wikipedia_eurofora_screenshot_400

-(RFK Jr. with US President JFK on 1961 - Wikipedia + Eurofora Screenshot)

=> Indeed, "In order to continue to Live in a Democracy, we need to Understand that (several) People in Authority Lie, and Will Abuse Every Power that We Relinquish to them !", he Warned, speaking in general.

 -  But, "Right Now We are Giving them Power to micro-Manage Every bit of Our Lives, 24 Hours each Day... They would Know Where We are, They are going to Know Where Our Money is, They are gonna have Access to Our Children, they will have a Right to Compel UnWanted Medical Interventions ...: Not Even the NAZIs didN't Have All that in the Camps !"...

>>> -"In World War II, they (NAZI's) Tested Vaccines on Gypsies and Jews. And the World was so Horrified, after WW2, that we Signed the Nuremberg Charter, and We All Pledged that we WouldN't do that  : We would Never again Impose UnWanted Medical Interventions on Human Beings, withOut Informed Consent", he Reminded.

>>> - "Yet, in 2 Years, All those Convictions have utterly Disappeared !" he Denounced, Now - while that's Notoriously also a Key Issue for CoE's PanEuropean Convention on "Bio-Medicine and Human Dignity and Rights", drafted in Strasbourg/France and signed at Oviedo/Spain on 1998, under Franco-German and Greek rotating CoE Presidencies -

(on which "Eurofora"s CoFounder has abudantly Published, initially at "MPAgency" and "TCWeekly" and Afterwards at "Eurofora", etc).

- And, concerning some Controversial Virus' Policies, "the Science is Not Explained to the People. They are Doing What they are Told. ... (Some) Government Agencies are Orchestrating Mass Obedience". But, "it's Not the Product of Democracy ! It's the Product of a Pharmaceutical  - Driven Bio-Security Agenda, that could EnSlave the entire Human Race !", RFKenedy Warned.

rfkennedy_at_berlin_press_conference_28.8.2020__7___acu2020_video__eurofora_screenshot_400 

=> All this, taken Together, Risks to "Plunge Us into a Distopian NightMare, where Apocalyptical Forces, of Ignorance and Greed, Will be Running Our Lives, and Ruining Our Children, Destroying all Dreams and Dignity that We Hoped to get for Our Children", he Denounced.

=> Thus, in Fact, "the Launching of "Children's Health Defense" in Europe is an Announcement to the World that <<We are Not Gonna Take it. We are Building Institutions to Fight>> Against such Threats. They may "have Global Intitutions, but We (too)have Now a Global Institution", he noted optimistically.

 - "And we are gonna be Out Tomorrow (on 29/8/2020) with the Greatest Croud, from all over Europe", related with such a Virus' Crisis "in German History, and All Will be Saying, Peacefully, the same thing :"

>>> -<<We are Not gonna Let You Take Our Democracy Away ! We are Not gonna Let You Take Our Health Away ! We are Not gonna Let You Take Our Freedoms Away ! We are Not gonna Let You Take Our Children Away !>>.

rfkennedy_at_berlin_press_conference_28.8.2020__8__concluding_point__acu2020_video__eurofora_screenshot_400 

=> - "I'm very Proud of these People .. who have the Courage to Challenge the <<Speek-Truth>> Power" (NDLR : Reference to Orwell's "1984" World-Famous Book). "And to Think Independently", in order "to Break Away from that Order Axis that are EnSlaving ...the Human Race",

RFKennedy Concluded, (pointing First of all, at a German, French, Belgian and Italian Young Allies sitting at the Same Table).

Recent developments proved that Europe can suceed to overcome challenges by aiming at great objectives, and this is needed also in 2009, said EU chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

    - "It's in the name of Great Ideas, Projects, Ambition and Ideals, that EU can overcome" challenges, stressed Sarkozy at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, in conclusion of a dense 7 months EU Chairmanship. "It's even easier for Europe to have Great projects, able to overcome national egoism, instead of limiting itself only to small projects" (unable to do alike), he observed.     

- "Europe must remain Ambitious and understand that the World needs her to take Decisions". "The World needs a Strong Europe", which "thinks on its own, has convictions, its own responses, its imagination" : "A Europe which does not limit itself into following" others, (as it did in the Past, when it followed USA, f.ex. on Bosnia). On the contrary, "Europe should undertake its own responsibilities", he said, after a series of succes in stopping the War between Russia and Georgia, and organizing the 1st EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which incited the Washington DC G-20 Summit to extend similar decisions World-wide.  


    - "When you sweep it all under the carpet, prepare yourself for hard tomorrows", he warned. "What hinders decisions is the lack of Courage and Will, the fading away of Ideals", he stressed before EU Parliament's 2008 debate on Human Rights and Sakharov prize on Freedom of thought attributed by MEPs to Chinese cyber-dissident Hu Jia, followed by an EU - Turkey meeting on Friday.

    - "I don't abandon my convictions" and "I will take initiatives" on EU level also in 2009, Sarkozy announced later. "France will not stop having convictions and taking initiatives" on Europe. + "It's an Error to wish to pass over the Heads of those who are elected in their Countries" : "It's an integrism I always fought against"', he warned.
---------------------
French EU Presidency faced 4 unexpected Crisis :

- An institutional crisis, with the Irish "No" to EU Lisbon Treaty, just before it started. A geopolitical crisis, wth the threat of War between Russia and Georgia risking to throw Europe back to Cold-war divisions, on August. A World-wide Financial and Economic crisis, arriving at a bad moment before crucial 2009 EU elections. And even a Strasbourg's mini-crisis, with EU Parliament's roof curiously falling down, from unknown reasons, in a brand new building on August, provoking an unprecedented transfert of the 2 September Plenary Sessions...

But it wasn't enough to stop Sarkozy ! On the contrary, it stimulated him...
---------------------------------------

- "The better way to deal with the recent problems of EU institutions (as the "3 NO" by France, the Netherlands and Ireland) is to take them as a "Test" in order to find solutions closer to Citizens' concerns", said later in Strasbourg Sarkozy's new choice as Ministe for EU affairs, Bruno Le Maire.

- On the Institutional front, Sarkozy gave Time to the Irish to think about it, and stroke on December a deal including a New Referendum after the June 2009 EU Elections, in exchange of a promise to keep the rule of "one EU Commissioner for each EU Member Country", and some opt-outs on Defence and Fiscal EU policies, Abortion, etc. If the Irish get a "Yes" Majority, then the institutional package could be completed in 2010 or 2011 on the occasion of Croatia's probable EU accession.

He was accused in Strasbourg to upgrade EU Council and downgrade EU Commision, but he replied that "strong Political initiatives by EU Council reinforce also the more technical role of EU Commission, under the political-technical leadership of its President", all 3 "working together with EU Parliament".


- But, meanwhile, Sarkozy energetically spearheaded an Historic 1st Summit of EuroZone's 15 Heads of State and Government at EU's core, exceptionally enlarged to a partial participation of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, on October 12 in Paris' Elysee palace, which started to tackle succesfully the growing world Financial crisis.

    It also paved the way for its endorsement by a subsequent Brussels' 27 EU Member States' gathering, before it all come to Washington's G-20 Summit. And "Europe was united, it asked for the 1st G-20 Summit, and it will also organise the next G-20 Summit on April in London", he observed.   

 But a Conference with EU, Russia, African and other Developing Countries, hosted in Strasbourg shortly after Washington G-20 Summit by the French EU Presidency, took a Resolution asking to enlarge participation to Global Economic Governance. Many found, indeed, illogic and unacceptable that f.ex. states as Turkey were given a seat at G-20 level, while all African Countries, and even the African Union itself, representing the greatest Continent on Earth, were excluded...


    Meanwhile, even USA''s "Paulson No 3" Plan, was, in fact, inspired by Europe's No 1 Plan", Sarkozy observed, largelly applauded by MEPs.

    And "Europe showed Solidarity" by mobilizing some 22 Billion credit for Hungary, 1,7 billion for Ukraine, as we do nowadays for Baltic States, etc., he added.

    The move on Economy was extended on December by an EU stimulus' plan totalling some 200 billion Euros, including 5 Billions released by EU Commission for big Projects, as well as various parallel National plans for Economic revival, (fex. 26 billions in France alone). They might appear limited, compared to USA President-elect Obama's reported plan to boost the American economy with 800 billion $, but at least succeded to overcome Europe's divisions for the first time on Economic governance, opening new horizons.

- The French President stressed even harder the unique role of an active EU Council's chairmanship, when he moved swiftly and efficiently, at the beginning of August, to succesfully stop War between Russia and Georgia, at the last minute, which threatened to bring Europe back to Cold War division.

"We (EU) also wanted to avoid a situation like in Bosnia, in the Past, when EU was absent, so that our American friends took their responsibilitues, and EU only followed", despite the fact that the conflict took place in Europe. Now, it was the EU who took its responsibilities".

A roadmap towards a new PanEuropean Security policy, before which all unilateral moves to place new Missiles (from USA or Russia) would be freezed, was proposed by Sarkozy after a meeting with Russian president Medvedev, at the eve of Washington DC's G-20 Summit.

Ukraine's "European" character was stressed at a Sarkozy - Jushenko Summit, September in Paris, while EU adopted on December an "Eastern policy", in which, "I'm convinced that our (EU's) future is to find with our Neighbours the conditions for Economic Development. Peace and Security, by explaining them that.. they must respect (Human Rights') Values, and adopt behaviors different from the Past", explained Sarkozy in Strasbourg.

Meanwhile, the "Union for the Mediterranean" was created, since July's Summit if 45 Heads of State and Government in Paris, as "an organisation for a permanent Dialogue, that we need", mainly in order to tackle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, by bringing together, for the 1st time, Israelis and Arabs, where "Europe must be present, in order to avoid a frontal clash".

- "If Europe doesn't take its part for Peace in the Middle-East, nobody else will do that in our place", Sarkozy stressed.

    Meanwhile, other EU Agreements were brokered during the French EU Presidency on Immigration, (fex. common Asylum rules, etc), and Climat- Energy :

    - On Climat-Energy, the 2007 German EU Presidency had fixed a triple 20% aim for 2020 (20% renewable Energies, 20% reduction of CO2 emmission, 20% energy efficience/economies), and the 2008 French EU Presidecny realized that, making the necessary compromises in order to modernize EU's industry, but without throwing some former Central-Eastern European Countries into abrupt Economic break down risking "social explosion".

    - Defence-Security EU policy was mainly postponed for April 2009, since both German chancellor Merkel and French president Sarkozy want to strike a deal with the new American president Obama in Strasbourg's NATO Summit.

    However, with all these 4 unexpected Crisis diverting attention to other urgencies, People wil wonder now, what happened to the famous deal proposed by freshly-elected French President Sarkozy on Turkey's controversial EU bid, back on August 2007, to continue EU - Turkey negotiations, but on the double condition that core chapters, intrinsequally linked with EU Membership, will be excluded, and that a collective Reflexion and Debate on Europe's future would start before the end of 2008.

    It was meant to reply to the crucial question : What kind of Europe do we want in 10 or 20 Years from now : A large Market, or a Political Europe, with a popular identity ? In Sarkozy's thinking, presented in his 2 landmark speeches on Europe in Strasbourg, shortly before and after the 2007 Elections, (on February and July 2007), Turkey's controversial EU bid would be incompatible with the second choice.

    It's true that EU Commision's Chairman, Jose Barroso, (who had notoriously declared, as former Portuguese Prime Minister, that he found "nonsense" the idea that Europe might become equal to the US), had repeatedly tried to avoid that Sarkozy's criticism on Turkey might start winning a larger audience in Europe, preferring a discrete "wismens' committee" work. And that most of the personalities later chosen in order to participate in a Committee on Europe's Future, are too much linked with Socialist parties and/or American policies, to be really critical of USA's notorious wish to impose Turkey to the EU, as Sarkozy had noted himself since March 2007..

     - "It's on EU Council's presidency to take political initiatives. EU Commission has other competences", stressed Sarkozy. The "European Ideal" is to "build Europe with the States, not against them". "Ask Europeans to chose between their countries and Europe won't work. You don't choose between your two parents : We must add them together".

    "France and Germany have an Historic Duty to work together, precisely because of what happened to the Past. We have to work hand by hand. We cannot be separated.It goes beyond me and Mrs Merkel today, Mr Schroeder and Mr. Chirac yesterday. It's not a choice, it's a duty to Europe and to the World".  "We need Germany, as Germany needs Europe". Compromise is inevitable, here as everywhere, and each one made some steps towards eachother's positions.

    But "it's true that Mrs Merkel didn't chose her Socialist partners, while I chose mine", Sarkozy said, in an indirect hint that the Socialist Minister of Finance in Germany might be a cause of minor past disagreements in Economy, which were overcome in recent negotiations.

    "We (France and Germany) have particular duties in Europe", but "in a Europe of 27 Member States, it's not enough for France and Germany to agree between them.

    "I always thought that Great Britain has a special role to play in Europe. ... Now, everybody "saw what it cost payed the UK for having been too exclusively open towards the US (and) Financial services. Europe needs the UK, but also the UK needs Europe" :- "We were able to face the hardest moment of the Financial crisis because the UK clearly chose Europe", stressed Sarkozy, reminding Gordon Brown's exceptional participation to the Historic 1st Heads of State/Government Summit of EuroZone, October 12 in Paris (See EuroFora's Reportage from Elysee Palace then).

     - "Some look at Europe with old glasses aged 30 years ago. While we must look at her in relation to what it will be in 30 years" in the Future, Sarkozy concluded.

Polls
