*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/(partly UpDated)/- It's by a Call to "Resist" (Criminals') "attempt to create Fear and division", that PanEuropean CoE's Parliamentary Assembly's President, Liliane Maury-Pasquier, reacted Today to the Bomb "Attack" in France's Lyon city, which Wounded more than 13 innocent Civilian People, (including 9 Women with a Young Girl aged 8 y.o.), several of whom need Chirurgical Operations to get rid of sharp Metal objects inserted in their Feet, and that French Police is currently Investigating as Murder Attempts linked to Terrorism.

- In that Press Release, send to CoE's Journalists, including "Eurofora", Pasquier, (a Swiss living at nearby Geneva, close to French Lyon), also expresses her "Sympathy and Solidarity to the Wounded and their Family, a well as to the People of Lyon and the French Authorities".

- While about 150 Agents are reportedly Searching to UnMask a Suspect, (cought in Surveillance Video, with his Face grossly Hidden, dressed in Black and White, but wearing a kind of "Bermuda" or Djellaba over his Bare Feet), who left a Parcel there where a makeshift Bomb with Nails, etc, erupted shortly Afterwards, with Explosives made out of "Acetone Peroxide, TATP", notiously "very often" used by Islamist Terrorists for Deadly Attacks in Europe, as, f.ex., in Paris and Saint Denis (2015), Brussels (2016), Manchester and London (UK), Catalonia (Spain) on 2017, etc, but known also to others, (as Newspaper "Le Parisien" revealed, citting Sources close to Paris' Investigators),

- Pasquier, however, urged, "Whoever is Responsible for this Explosion", to Reply mainly "by Developing a Democratic and united Society", as concluded the experienced former Chair of CoE Assembly's (PACE) Socialist Group, according to that Text, which curiously ommits the usual call for all those responsible for such a bloody violen Crime to be Found and Punished, (according to ECHR's established case-law), Exceptionaly send by a Turkish origin PACE's Agent.

- Meanwhile, French President Macron had immediately qualified Lyon's Bloody Explosion as an "Attack", right from the Start, while, Later-on, the National Press Agency "AFP", and traditional Newspaper "LeParisien", etc., revealed that, "for the Judges and specialized Policemen, this attack certainly Aimed to Kill"...

Indeed, inter alia, the Chosen Location for the Explosion of that Nail Bomb was at a kind of Busy "Shopping Center", in a Cross-Roads including a Bakery, a Pharmacy, Banks, Shoes and Clothe's shops, as well as Many Restaurants, near 2 Historic Christian Churches and Lyon's Central Touristic Area, at one of the Biggest Pedestrian Streets in Europe, classified UNESCO, etc., so that a lot of People should, normally, pass from there, particularly a Friday Afternoon.

I.e., obviously, a potentially "Dangerous" place for various Aggressions Targetting Civilian People, (including, f.ex., recently, the reported Rape of a Woman, there, while even Today, 9 or 10 among the 13 Victims, Hit and Wounded by that Terror Attack, were ...Women and a small Girl, by a Coincidence, the Same Day of CoE's International Conference on Violence and Discriminations against Women was organized, by the French Presidency of the CoE and the G7, in Strasbourg ! See: ...).

Especially in the current "Context of High Risks for Terrorism", as French JHA deputy Minister Laurent Nunez had Recently Warned, in relation with his Reply to a relevant "Eurofora"s Question, at a Press-point in Strasbourg, already last November 2018, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/frenchjhavministeronstrasbourgsecurity.html), just a few Weeks Before a Deadly Islamist Terrorist Attack, exactly in Strasbourg's "Christmas Market", during EU Parliament's Plenary Session of December 2018, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euparliamentlockedinbyterrorattack.html).

So that, Today, French JHA, Christophe Castaner himself, announced that "Security will be Upgraded in Areas welcoming the Public", etc.

+ (Partly UPDATED) And, finally, after a lot of Criticism and Protests, the French Police, at last decided, Later-on,, and managed to publish 2 NEW, much Better PHOTOS of that main Suspect, who had been cought in CCTV : Now, f.ex., you can see that he did Not have a Mask, but a long Beard; that he didn't have a Djellaba, but really a "Bermuda"; that his Clothes were Not Black and White, but "Green" (Dark and Light) ; even a part of his Face could, at last, be Now seen ! After all this Time curiously Lost, at the Eve of Important European Elections, from Now-on, a fully-fledged Search and Identification of that Suspect number 1, could, at last, really Start...

Recent Islamist Terrorist Attacks cowardly Targetting innocent and defenseless Civilian People, (including, f.ex., that which killed 5 and Wounded a Dozen in Strasbourg, during EU Parliament's Plenary Session of December 2018 : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euparliamentlockedinbyterrorattack.html), had already shown that ISIS' and/or other Terror Gangs had Changed their Tactics, and, instead of continuously Aggressing People up to the End, (i.e. via "Suicide"-like Attacks), on the Contrary, the had nowadays decided to Stop Killing/Wounding People after a some Time, and Run to Hide and Escape themselves, keeping their Weapons and covering up their Accomplishes. 

As long as, also, this Lyon's Nail Bomber still remains on the Run, without having been Neither Cought, and Not Even Identified, inevitably, such a Terrorist is really, still "Dangerous", as the French Police has now Warned Everybody, in its Official Announcements, urging Civilian People, f.ex., to "do Not Intervene Alone", if they find him in front of them...

However, it wasN"t yet Explained at all for which real Reason someone inside the Police had took the Strange Initiative to Hide the Face of the Wanted Lyon's nail Bomber suspect number 1, (apparently by Covering his Face with a Dark Paint: See that 1st Official Announcement, Supra), during More than 1 Day ! 

lyon_attenat_killer_photo_more_clear_400 

But, during all this Time, while Searches were practically Obstructed thus, obviously, a lot of Negative Consequences might have occured : F.ex. Destruction of Evidence, Hidding of Weapons/Bomb Explosives, and/or of eventual Accomplishes, Escape of the Bloody Nail Bomber, more, additional Crimes, etc...

lyon_attack_wounded_victim_samu_400 

In General, as a matter of Principle, Hidding the Truth to the People, (withOut any known Excuse), about Urgently needed, Vital Information on Bloody Terrorists, is Not Good Tactics, but a Bad, InEfficient, Anti-Democratic and even Dangerous Blunder, which may have UnPredictable and/or Irreversible Consequences. 

lyon_attack_woman_wounded_at_head_400 

Particularly when the Number 1 Concern of all EU Citizens is the Need to Protect them from recently WideSpread, bloody Islamist Terrorist Attacks, cowardly Targetting Civilians, as latest Polls have revealed, (See, f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coespokesmanonrussia.html).

And if to all this is Added even an UnExpected and UnExplained, Sudden Exclusion of such important Topics from any serious Discussion at the unique EU Parliament's Debate between Leading Candidates in the 2019 EU Elections, (as we just scandalously saw Recently: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euparliamentelectoraldebatemaimed.html),

=> then, all Real Europeans feel that an Historic Time has come to struggle for real Democracy, and the survival and development of their Civilisation, with a Big Political Move, (of a Different Star from what some think), which, as De Gaulle said for France and the World, would now, inevitably, be also from Europe for Humanity, (against Barbary)...

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 ?
