*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- The just re-Elected for a New Mandate, experienced President of PanEuropean CoE's Parliamentary Assembly (PACE), Pedro Agramunt, a mainstream ChristianDemocrat MEP from the Governing Party of Rahoy in Spain, speaking to "Eurofora", earlier Today in Strasbourg, at the Conclusion of PACE's Winter 2017 Plenary Session, (23-27 January 2017), Clearly Declared his Firm Wish for the Voice of Victims of Terrorism to be Heard, in the foreseable Future, possibly also through the Added Force of his own Initiative "No Hate, No Fear", and a related New Priority of the current CoE's Presidency by Cyprus (for the Period of Novembe 2016 - May 2017), that was Welcomed, Earlier this Week, also by CoE's Secretary General Thornbjorn Jagland, (See+Infra).


- Yes, I really Hope so !", stressed CoE Assembly's President Agramunt, in Reply to a relevant Question by "Eurofora".


- Even if I don't know yet how exactly (this would be done), However, we (CoE) should act on that, he Agreed.


Jagland Earlier praised Cyprus' Presidency of CoE's Highest Political body, that of its Committee of Ministers, for having Recently Included, among its Priorities, also the Aim to Help Victims of Terrorism, who are, sometimes, "Left Alone", as he Denounced, and to Give them also "a Voice" on the matters affecting them, because of the Tragedy that they Faced.  CoE's SG said that during a Joint Press Point with Cyprus' Foreign Minister, Ioanis Kasulides, (CoE's Chairman-in-office), here in Strasbourg, last MonNday Afternoon.


Agramunt had Pursued Further his June 2016 "No Hate, No Fear", Pioneer Initiative, also during PACE's Autumn Plenary Session, last October 2016. On this occasion, he had Invited 2 Family members of Victims of ISIL's Bloody Terrorists who cowardly Targetted and Murdered many Innocent Civilian People, back on November 2015 in Paris, during the Attacks at "Bataclan" etc. In particular, the Mother of a Killed Young Girl from Italy had Launched, then, a Vibrant Call for Europe's own Voice to be Strongly Heard, against that Islamist Terrorism Barbary, and the Husband of a Killed Wife from France, had supported the view that Terrorisms' Victims really Needed to become Able to take Efficient Collective Actions Together.


Meanwhile, a well known and Experienced, mainly French Association of Victims of Terrorism (AfVT), which Existed Already in the Past, (i.e. Long Before the emergence of a spreading pseudo-"Islamist" Terrorism, recently), and often sends its Press Releases to "Eurofora", suddenly launched an Unusual, Strong Denonciation against the concrete conditions in which was prepared the January 2017 Annual Commemoration Day of the "Bataclan" a.o. ISIL's Attacks, (including, particularly, a reportedly outrageous Publicity that was made, on this occasion, to an Individual who had notoriously been in the Past the Leader of an Islamic Extremists' Group, from which had emerged even the Killers of "Charlie Hebdo" Journalists, back on January 2015, also in Paris.


Previously, it's also several 9/11 Mass Terrorism Victims' Families and Friends' NGOs, particularly HQ at New York, who had Vigorously Opposed, as useless, Scandalous and Dangerous Provocation, an Obama-backed Project to Build an Islamic Mosque at the Proximity of the "Ground Zero" area where about 3.000 Innocent Civilian People have Tragicaly Lost their Lives, after the 9/2001 Barbaric Terrorist Attacks, including Islamist Airplanes' HiJackers, etc).


More among them (9/11 Victims' Families and Friends), joined also by various Other Civil Society Activists, Independent Experts from all over the World, etc., had also Started various kinds of Efforts in order to Find the whole Truth about some, still Shady, Obscure or Controversial aspects of the TWC's strange Collapse, (and/or the Pentagon's, as well as the Air-Flights' Exceptional Incidents, at least on certain points).


On September 11, 2016's Fifteenth Anniversary, it was also Revealed, (particularly by various Press Articles pointing at the Re-Publication of aCritical INTW that had given on 9/11 the currently (2017) New US President, Don Trump, mainly about WTC's  collapse. Former US President GWBush had Heard, earlier, several Appeals, made then, by Victims' Families and Friends, to Open Independent Investigations on what Really Happened on 9/11. It wasn't yet known, up to Today, whether Trump might wish to eventualy pursue, one or another point of his initial reaction to 9/11or not.


But, Meanwhile, notoriously, the Various Recent Civilian Victims of Islasmist Terrorism have rapidly Multiplied also in USA, particularly during these Last Years of Barack Hussein Obama's term, which had just Ended.

Speaking exclusively to "EuroFora", the New EU Parliament's President, former Polish Prime Minister, ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Jerzy Busek, welcomed proposals by EuroFora about innovative ways for EU Citizens to attend EU debates before important final decisions which affect people's lives.

- "We (EU Parliament) must be transparent", Buzek stressed from the outset.  "We must have clear answers also for delicate questions. If we don't touch a problem, you must know why, and when shall we decide in the nearest future".. "Because "we (EU) must think about Europeans, first of all : They don't understand well what is going on in the EU. So, it's our duty to inform them, to make discussions here more interesting".

"EuroFora" congratulated President Buzek for the anouncement he made, from the 1st day of his election in Strasbourg (on Tuesday, 14 July 2009), on his intention to make  transparent debates, exchanges of views, etc. before the final adoption of decisions in EU Parliament's Plenary, when issues are evolving inside Committees, (See earlier publication).

And we reminded, in this regard, that "EuroFora" has been advocating a project for EU Citizens' active involvement in pluralist EU debates before important EU decisions, since more than a Decade : 1997-2007+

- "Thank you. We (EU Parliament), indeed, have exciting debates", Buzek replied. But, in practice, "without a possibility for our Citizens to see them, not even by the Press, the Radio or TV, etc., because it is in Committees", he regreted.

- "But, they (i.e. Media, Citizens, etc) might interact with you, with MEPs, etc, May be we can imagine something", "EuroFora" proposed.

- "Yes, (but) it needs, a quite new idea", Buzed observed.

- "Why not through some innovations ?", "EuroFora" suggested.

- "Innovation ? That's it. Fantastic  New Information Technologies !", Buzek realized.

- "Precisely, "EuroFora" has such a project, since more than a Decade (1997-2009), to use new technologies for public debates before major EU decisions are taken", we reminded.

- "If you have such proposals, please come to us, come to us. We must" do something, agreed the new EU Parliamen's President.

    This fits with Buzek's main stance, expressed at EU Parliament's plenary earlier this week in Strasbourg, that the European Union must succeed to overcome a "Crisis of Trust" vis a vis EU Citizens. (See previous EuroFora publication).

    For that purpose, obviously information and debates are valuable, but purely instrumental, procedural means which can help focus on, and highlight a substantial content, attractive to EU Citizens, which needs to be determined by other, political, and not mediatic factors.  

    Buzek spoke about the urgent need to overcome the Global Economic Crisis,  the struggle for Human and Civic Rights, Democracy, etc., the Eastern Partnership, links with Russia, strategic partnership with USA and emerging countries, etc.

    But he also used (while speaking both to "EuroFora" and other Media) the expression : "The Europeans", for EU Citizens. This points right towards what several important EU leaders (including French President Sarkozy, German Chancellor Merkel, etc) have started to highlight particularly during the recent years : That there is a vital need, and an historic opportunity, for the development of a European Conscience, to stimulate e renaissance of a European Identity able to attract Popular support, for the EU to become a strong player in a Multopolar World : In other words, the revitalisation of a project for a "Political Europe".

    By a coincidence, this was indirectly but surely reminded, earlier in Strasbourg, by another ... Busek (this time with a "s") :

    Speaking to more than 650 participants from CoE's member countries, at the conclusion of the 2009 Summer University of its Political Schools, Erhard Busek, (with an "s"), former vice-Chancellor of Austria and EU Coordinator for South-Eastern Europe, pointed at the current need to revitalize Europe's "Identity", forged by Greek philosophy and Roman Law, Christian values and Enlightment's ideas, etc. through the ages.     

- "We have almost the same name with Jerzy Buzek (EU Parliament's new President, who is a former Polish Prime Minister), because both our Families come ...from  the same village, located at the Heart of Europe, which was often shared between Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic. But my family emmigrated a long time ago to Austria, while Jerzy Buzek's family remained in Poland", explained f. vice-Chancellor Erhard Busek to "EuroFora".   

 An astonishingly concrete and simple example of European Integration from the grassroots : Starting by EU Citizens, i.e. those "Europeans", that EU Parliament's new President, Jerzy Buzek (this time with a "z"), wants to bring alongside MEP's decision-making proces, (according to "EuroFora"'s main idea : Comp. supra)...
