 *Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- According to the Latest Official Press Anouncements, only 14 Irregular Migrants were Returned Back to Turkey, at the Same Time that More than ...278 New Arrivals of Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants through Turkey have entered inside the EU (+Schenghen area) Member Greece, during these last 2 Days (17 + 18 August 2016).


I.e. the current Rate of Returns, compared to New Mass Arrivals, between Turkey and EU, is .. Less than Five per Cent : 5 % only !

 

+278 v. 14 (i.e. less than 5%): Thus goes Now that controversial EU - Turkey Deal on Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants (See Infra) in real Practice... 


+ In Addition, more than 57.000 Mass Irregular Migrants, who had all arrived Earlier through Turkey, still remain in Greece, after Crossing irregularly EU's External Borders. This is, obviously, just a "Small" Part of the More than 1,5 Million of IMIs who notoriously crossed into Europe via Turkey during 2015-2016.


The above mentioned 14 Returnees Back to Turkey were taken in charge by EU's FRONTEX, which had to Pay and Organise Air Plane Flights and Special Boat Transports these last two Days.


At the Same Time, the More than 278 New Arrivants apparently came inside the EU with various Turkish Smugglers' ships.


Thus goes, in Real Practice, the infamous, Controversial and UnPopular EU - Turkey Deal, which Costs to EU Citizens Taxpayers (i.e. including Poor People, obliged to pay at least VAT, etc) more than 9 Billions € earmarked for Ankara between 2015 - 2018...

 And it is even Foreseen, according to that (notoriously "Blackmailed" Deal, brokered "en catimini" a Shady Sunday in a Deserted Brussels, notoriously Blocked by a Total Emergendy "Black-Out" of all Public a.o. Transports just after more recent Extremist Islamic Terrorists' Deadly Attacks against innocent Civilian People), for ...Each Individual thus Returned back to Turkey, to be Compensated (sic !) by anOther Migrant, now even ...officialy Chosen by the Turkish Authorities among those available at its Asiatic Borders to Syria and/or Iraq, etc...


Moreover, the Turkish Government openly Now Blackmails the EU by Threatening, in a lot of Statements to EU Media, that Ankara would unleash a 2nd "Tsunami" of even more Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants (in fact, "Selected" by Turkish Agents in one way or another, f.ex. Christians and/or Qualified People Excluded, almost No Women, Nor Real Children and only a Few Families, etc., as in the recent Past), IF Europeans don't Yield to an Ultimatum to Accept also another, even More Controversial and UnPopular, total "Visa-Free" status for 80 Millions of Turks, (according to which, anybody of them could come Enter and Stay inside Europe for 6 Monhs Each Year, whenever he/she liked)...


Meanwhile, ...NATO Warships, Airplanes and other Military stuff, reinforced European FRONTEX equipment and Personel, as well as the latest EU CoastGuard, just voted by EU Parliament in Strasbourg since Early July (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euexternalbordersguard.html ), are supposed to have recently Started to Protect EU's External Borders, in the obviously Stategicaly located Greek Islands accross the Aegean Sea, (after also a Famous such Call by German Chancelor Angie Merkel at nearby Karlsruhe already from December 2015 : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/merkelagainstsmugglersataegeansea.html ).


EU Citizens' notoriously Growing Concerns about such Issues notoriously were a Main Driver for the UK Popular Referendum's Majority Voting for "BREXIT" at the End of June 2016. "A Fortiori" after the Recent Series of Deadly Attacks by various Muslim Asylum Seekers/irregular Immigrants who Killed and/or Wounded Many innocent Civilian People in several European Countries even more during this Summer : F.ex. France, Germany, Switzerland, the UK, Belgium, Austria, etc, (while it has also Discovered that Most ISIL's Armed Terrorists who Killed more than 100 Civlians in Paris on November 2015 had already Entered into the EU through Turkey and via Greece, Hidden among that Mass of IMIs). This was Added to Many Recent Brutal Mobs' Aggressions against Defenseless European Women and even Only 14 years old Young Girls in several Cities accross Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Swizerland, the UK, etc., (See, f.ex. CoE's relevant Debate + Resolution in Strasbourg, at http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeforenquiryandjusticeonmobviolentattacksagainstwomen.html), going afterwards Down to even 10 or 4 years old young Boys, f.ex. in Wien and Boostedt, or a 79 y.o. Elder Woman in a Cemetery at Iddenbueren last July, and to a lot of Aggressions at Public Swimming Pools as German Police Reports denounced,  (etc).  All these recent Facts Fuel also various "EuroSceptic" and/or Rightist, etc., often called "Populist" Movements, progressively inspiring even Mainstream Political Parties, (inevitably including also several Strongly Motivated Pro-Europeans and/or sincere Human Rights Defenders, Shocked by the Tragedy suffered by so Many Innocent Victims and subsequent "Terror" or Fear Spreading among the People, as f.ex. lately in Wien, etc), accross all Europe.


In this regard, at least for the Time being, all serious observers are, in fact, obliged to Acknowledge that, in Real Practice, the Only "Good News", which currently Protect European People from even Worse such Treats, are the "De Facto" Border Checks and Controls, notoriously set up by several European Countries, particularly accross the so-called "Western Balkans Route" Exposed to Turkey via Greece, such as, f.ex. Bulgaria, FYROM, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, etc., with Support from the Czech Republic, Slovakia (current EU Council's rotating Presidency-holder : Comp. f.ex. Prime Miinister Robert Fico's relevant Reply to "Eurofora"s Question during the latest EU Heads of State/Government Summit in Brussels, June 2016: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/ficomigrationpolicymightpushbrexits.html), which had already Started to seriously Curb and Reduce that Unprecedented Mass Migration influx hrough Turkey, as Early as since Middle February 2016, as even Official UNHCR and IMO Data have Proved, according also to a Pioneer Analysis and Publication by "Eurofora" from Early May : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/unpopulareuvisafreefor80millionsturksuseless.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/weltadoptseuroforaviewonuselesseuturkeymigrantsdealafternewthreat.html).


But, at this Eve of the forthwoming 27 EU Head of State/Government Summit due to kickStart, for the 1st Time at such a level, (as former French President Nicolas Sarkozy had vainly Asked, already as Early as since August 2007, and promised but finaly Downplayed by controversial Former EU Commission President Barroso, now a US Global Financial "Goldman Sachs" employee), Debate on EU's Future developments, on Mid-September 2016 in Bratislava (Slovakia), which Timely Coincides with the Sad "Anniversary" of Last Year's, Middle-August 2015 sudden Start of that ...Public Transports-Helped, Unprecedented in History, Huge "Tsunami" of More than 1,5 Million Massive Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants' influx inside the EU through Turkey and via Greece, the Obvious Question which is Now Raised is :


=> How Europe will Defend its External Borders, (while also Helping, in one way or another, the Real Refugees, who are notoriously a small Minority among that Mass of Irregular Migrants from Various Muslim Countries related to, and at least partly Selected by Turkey : Comp. Supra), and Protect EU Citizens, as well as a Real, Historic and Socio-Cultural European Cohesion in the forseable Future ?

Bloody concrete Facts about most of the Recent Victims who Died or were Wounded by Violent Attacks of various Muslim Migrants cowardly attacking innocent and defenseless Civilian People in Europe, (f.ex., from Wurzburg or Munich and Reutlingen, up to Haute-Savoie, Magnanville, Nice, Gratz, etc., as well as in USA's Tennessee, San Bernandino, Orlando, etc), clearly reveal that Mere Economic "Integration" is NOT Enough at all, but only a Tragic and irresponsible Blunder, IF a sincere Socio-Cultural Integration at least on elementary Values (particularly Hard for those Chosen by Turkey, in one way or another : Comp. Supra) is Neglected or even Totaly Absent.

This naturaly goes Hand by Hand Together (but Not as a Pre-Condition at all) also with an obviously Timely and long-overdue interogation, on what Role Europe should play in Collective Efforts to put, at last, an End to the Sufferings of Syrian People since the Bloody and Destructive, Violent Upheavals that some have notoriosuly Provoked between 2011-2016.

Indeed, at least Now, that After-BREXIT Europe, isn't supposed to Start playing, at last, an increasingly Important Foreign Policy Role in the World ? Not even at EU's close Neighbourhood ?

However, according to Press Reports, a large 3/4 Majority of irregular Migrants arriving to EU Member Greece from Turkey during the Last 1,5 Month (i.e. about 2.000 on July-MidAugust 2016), were Not even Syrians...

New Plan revealed during EU Parliament's session and while Strasbourg's Unified University was inaugurated, (biggest in France, aiming at EU links).

 
EuroDistrict Strasbourg-Ortenau's dynamics were boosted by a key Franco-German meeting during EU Parliament's session here, which anounced a swift towards ambitious European aims : To become a showcase for concrete achievements of European Cooperation that benefit Citizens' everyday life and Economy, while also developing a Culture able to serve and stimulate European Organizations' political activities.

With measures to be taken in 2009, Strasbourg-Ortenau's EuroDistrict should become EU's new "Metropolitan area" in the Decade 2010-2020, at the heart of Europe in the performant "OberRhein" region, a Franco-German Expert's Report anounced.

- "Defend European Institutions, and in particular EU Parliament" is a key point of the 2009 Report's threefold focus on "Infrastructures"' economy and quality, "Citizens' everyday life", and "Cultural and Political influence".

According to a Draft Statute, France and Germany agree that "an undeniable element of EuroDistrict's image" should be "Strasbourg's status, as Capital of a Democratic and Parliamentarian Europe".

    After parallel and joint meetings at EU Parliament, French and German Ministers for EU affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE and Gunter GLOSER, started working with representatives of Local and Regional Authorities from both sides at Strasbourg's Historic Town Hall, Place Broglie, for the 2009 Monitoring of EuroDistrict "Strasbourg-Ortenau, during which was published an important Experts' Strategic Study with proposals on how to develop it in the Decade 2010-2020.
eurodistrict_speeches_400

    Introducing the 1st Experts' Report on "EuroDistrict" at a moment when it needs "New Ideas" as food for thought, Strasbourg's Mayor, Senator Roland RIES said that "a special Status" should allow "Citizens to share Infrastructures and a common European project", in agreement with his collegue, Mayor of Kehl and German spokesperson for EuroDisctrict, Dr. Gunther PETRY, who focused mainly on the useful role of "Local" authorities in "concrete" achievements.

    - Together with "facilitating Citizens' everyday life", "our countries have also a Political aim", which needs to find "New Forms of Cooperation", said German Minister for EU affairs, Gunter GLOSER. According to a "Subsidiarity principle", which starts from a smaller level, leaving to a bigger entity what it cannot achieve alone, EuroDistict should be the "1st level" in a "Concentric" schema, he added.

    - In fact, "it's a question of Europe's credibility : EuroDistrict must prove that Franco-German cooperation gives results", with "concrete achievements", said the new French Minister for EU affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE. Now, we "must advance further" : There is both "Local and National support" to make of Strasbourg-Ortenau's EuroDistrict "an example on what Europe must do in the Future if it wants to be credible in Citizens' eyes".

    - "Our Mission was to find the region's Potential of the region, "and search adequate Measures to use and develop it"; said German Expert Dr. Erwin VETTER. A main proposal is to "create a New Center for EU Competences", where everything should be concentrated : EuroDistrict, EuroCorps, EuroBest, etc : All in one area, while also linking Airports and other means of Transport, Culture, Education, Science and Research, etc. in order "to create 1 Metropolitan area" before 2020, he anounced.

    - With imagination and organisation "we tried to marry the French and German spirit", added French Expert Bernard COTTIN. He underlined "two points" :  - "In their Everyday Life, Citizens should feel that they are living in One Common Area", (fex. on Phones, Hospitals, Retirement, etc). But EuroDistrict should have also a "Cultural Dimension" : "Strasbourg, had been a little-bit left behind by both countries in the past, but must now find a New dynamic Momentum, at the Heart of Europe, strengthening its Cultural atous and becoming Multi-Cultural, in order to attain a European Dimension and develop the European Institutions", he concluded.

    Symbolically, both Mayors of Strasbourg and Kehl, Ries and Petry, gave to Ministers Gloser and Le Maire as a Gift two Books on Rhine River : Stylicised by both Logos chosen for "EuroDistrict" (as body of a flower), and for Strasbourg's new, Unified University, "UniStra", (as a long "S"), Rhine river came at the focus this week in Strasbourg, headquarters also of the oldest European Organisation : The Committee on Rhine's Navigation.. Meanwhile, Le Maire switched over from German (that he speaks fluently) to French, echoed, the other way round, by Gloser, who also understands French...
---------------------------------
The 2009 REPORT :
---------------------------------
eurodistrict_experts_report_handout_400
 
Experts' proposals for EuroDistrict's Legal status is to start in 2009 with a "European Group for Transborder Cooperation", and "replace it, when possible, .. with an Original Form" of a new legal entity.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
Citizens' oriented measures include to facilitate "acces to Health", "Mobile Phones", "Transborder Workers"', "School exchanges", etc., and other measures interesting Citizens, as f.ex. the creation of "Common Hospitals or Rescue centers", etc. Already, an agreement on "Urgent Medical Care" will be signed on February 10.

As "Economic Capital" of one of EU's most performant areas, known as "Ober-Rhein Metropolitan Region" ("superior Rhine" area), Strasbourg-Ortenau's EuroDistrict "should also develop its role of European Cultural and Political Capital, Symbol of Franco-German entente and of a Democratic Europe", Experts' Report concludes.

This goes well beyond developping Bi-linguism, transbrorder Training and "systematic" rapprochment of both Cultures (in Cinema, Theater, Music, etc).

It adds a progressive transfert in EuroDistrict of "elements of the Franco-German Brigade", close to "EuroCorps" Headquarters, and culminates with the promotion of European institutions (see above).

The Report also proposes to launch an "initiative" for "EU Parliament's unique Headquarters", developing Strasbourg's attractiveness vis-a-vis MEPs and staff.

It also includes the development of "a Research and Higher Education pole", among French, German and Swiss partners, "linked with Strabourg's new; Unified University" and "Ortenau's HochSchulen"

It's not a coincidence that this same week was inaugurated Strasbourg's Unified University : - "UniStra" becomes the Biggest in France, (with more than 42.000 students, 5.200 staff, a brand new "European Doctoral College", some 100 Research centers, and a Capital of more than 400 million €  from the State), aiming to create closer links with nearby German and Swiss Universities, fex. Karlsruhe, Fribourg, Stutgard, Bale, etc, as French Minister for Scientific Research and Higher Education, Valerie PECRESSE advised.

(See other, related News, already sent to interested "EuroFora"s subscribers and donors, which will be also posted at the Website asap).

Last but not least :  Non-believers should meditate on the fact that all this was symbolically made in the same Strasbourg Historic Town Hall's room where even the establishement of Council of Europe was decided, 60 years back in 1949...

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 ?
