*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Experienced, Long-Time Mainstream MEP, from the Governing ChristianDemocrat Party (CDU) in Germany, Elmar Brok, speaking to "Eurofora" in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, slamed a reported Claim by Turkey over Unilateral Military Intervention in Cyprus in the Future, which risks to Block the UN sponsored Talks for a Peaceful ReUnification of the Island, currently unfolding at Crans-Montana (Switzerland).

Brok has Chaired EU Parliament's Foreign Affairs Comittee for more than 12 Years, between 1999-2007 and 2012-2017, and Drafted Many Reports, particularly on EU Governance, EU Enlargement, and Common Foreign/Security Policy, etc.


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


 - Ankara reportedly wants to Hold an Unilateral Right for Military Intervention even in the Future, after a Solution to the Cyprus' Issue. Do you think that this would be Normal for an EU Member State (as Cyprus) ?, "Eurofora" Questioned Brok Today.

 - "No ! This is Not Acceptable !", cearly stressed, in reaction to "Eurofora"s above mentioned Question Brok.

- In fact, at First, "it has to be a Transitory Period", for Ankara's current Invasion/Occupation Troops to withdraw, he added.

- "And Afterwards", such problems should cease to exist, pleaded Brok in substance.


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

Cyprus' President, Nicos Anastassiades, has reportedly proposed that, in a ReUnified Cyprus, Security could be guaranteed also by mainly European/International mecanisms :


- I.e. the whole Island's full EU Membership, as well as by UNO's Security Council, (acting under Chapter 7 of UN Charter).

But Turkey's Foreign Minister Mesut Cavusoglou has reportedly stressed, even during recent Days at the sidelines of the Crans-Montana UN-sponsoted Multilateral Talks on Cyprus, that Ankara wants to keep Military Troops on the Island, in addition to a persistent Claim for a Right to Unilateral Military Intervention, provoking a series of  Growing Reactions.


Therefore, it seems, according to the Latest News, relased this Evening, that Ankara's would now push a variant of the above :


- After merely Diminishing the Number of the current Turkish Invasion/Occupation Troops if the Greek Cypriots  Accept Ankara's other desiderata on a Deal for Cyprus, Turkey would agree, After a ... Fifteen (15)  Years period of Time, simply for "a Review" of its Claim for Unilateral Military Intervention. But it would Never Accept to Totaly Withdraw all its Foreign Army from the Island.... Moreover, this would be reportedly subordinated to the Condition that Cyprus accepts a "Rotating" Presidency, between the Representatives of normaly 80% Greek Cyriots and 18% Turkish Cypriots, (as they were Before the Turkish Army Invasion), and/or to Give an extensive Right of "Veto" to the latter, etc.


But, inter alia, Mainstream German Newspaper "Die Welt" had Strongly Denounced (with a FrontPage Article already Published as Early as since January 2017) the Risk for ..."Erdogan to get a VETO on EU Decisions" (according to "Welt"'s Headines), through such manouvers via Turkish Cypriots' role in an eventual Deal on EU Member Cyprus according to Ankara's desiderata...


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


+ Meanwhile, at Crans-Montana (Switzerland),  Turkish Foreign Minister Mesut Cavusoglou has reportedly Threatened several times the Greek Cypriots that if they do Not Accept Ankara's demands on Cyprus' Issue, then, these UNO-sponsored Peace Talks would be ..."The Last" !


I.e. that UN + CoE + EU Member State Cyprus would be practicaly Abandoned to a persisting Foreign Military Invasion and Occupation of its Norhern Territories, added to some 200.000 Greek Cypriot Refugees' Family Homes and/or other Private Properties' Usurpation, mainly by illegal Foreign Turkish Settlers Massively Imported by Ankara in the Occupied Territories, if Nicosia dares not yield to Turkey's desiderata...       


Such a Cynic and, reportedly, these Days,  Repeated Threat by Mr. Cavusoglou, instead of Upseting, Terrorizing, and/or Blocking these important UN-sponsored Talks for a Peaceful ReUnification of Cyprus, would better be dealt with a bit of ..."Black Humour" :


- Indeed, the Turkish Foreign Minister's Threats for this to be "The Last" UN-sponsored efforts to Solve he Cyprus issue, irresistibly Remind ...the controversial American Actor Ms Meryl Streep's Maverick play-song ... "Last MidNight"  :

"Last MidNight"'s Lyrics are quite Locacious...


(Streep plays the role of an apparently Powerful but Bad Witch, which attempts to Terrorise a Poor and Weak Family, who Dared Refuse to Abandon their Child to her Abusive Demands... But, at the End, that Bad Witch falls in her own trap).


A relevant selection :



<< Witch
Shhhhhhhhhhhhh!

It's the Last midnight.
It's the Last wish.
It's the Last midnight,

Soon it will be Boom-
Squish!

.../...

Had to get your Prince,
Has to get your cow,
Have to get your wish,
Doesn't matter how-
Anyway, it doesn't matter now.

It's the last midnight,
It's the boom-
Splat!
Nothing but a vast midnight.
Everybody smashed flat!

-----------------
(The Persecuted Family) :

Nothing we can do.
Not exactly true:
We can always give her the boy...
No?
-------------------------------

No, of course what really matters
Is the blame,
Somebody to blame.
Fine, if that's the thing you enjoy,
Placing the blame,
If that's the aim,
Give me the blame-

=> Just Give me the Boy !


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


The others (the Persecuted Family) : No !  No !


Witch :  No ?


-----------------------
../..
I'm not good,
I'm not nice,
I'm just right.
I'm the Witch.
You're the world.

I'm the hitch.
I'm what no one believes,
I'm the Witch.
You're all liars and theives,
../..
Oh, why bother?
You'll just do what you do.

It's the last midnight,
So, goodbye all.
Coming at you fast, midight-

Soon you'll see the sky fall.

../..

Listen to the roar...
Giants by the score-!
Oh well, you can blame another witch.

It's the last midnight.
It's the last verse.
Now, before it's past midnight,

I'm leaving you my Last Curse:

I'm leaving you alone.
You can tend the garden, it's yours.
Separate and alone,
Everybody down on all fours.

../..
Lost the beans again!
../..
Give me claws and a hunch,
Just away from this bunch

And the gloom
And the Doom
And the Boom
Cruuunch !!!    >>

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

 

 Often, Cyprus' issue has been approached either in a Rush, with Hasty moves Risking to lead into a Shaky, Unsustainable situation ready to Crash and serve as Pretext for even Worse Division - or Carefully, with a Serious, Just and Balanched analysis, Trying to find the Best possible and more Solid solution for a real ReUnification.

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 ?
