Ban Muslim street prayers. Ban the burka and niqab. Ban sharia. Across the EU.

Europe is rooted in reason, secularism, freedom and the rule of law. There is no room for God-made laws. Most Muslims who seek to make Europe their home have at best a vague understanding of our most defining values, values which fundamentally contradict the commands of their religion-ideology.  Islam is an ideology, not simply a personal belief about God. It comes with a set of detailed rules that define a social segregationist hierarchy in which Muslims submit to Allah, women submit to men and all non-Muslims submit to Islamic rule. Europe must stand up for its values.  BAN ISLAMIC STREET PRAYERS across the EU. They are invasive. They are intimidating. They are racist. They are backward. BAN THE BURQA AND NIQAB across the EU. They are invasive. They are intimidating. They are unsafe. They are degrading. BAN SHARIA. God-made laws go against the quintessence of Western civilization. Defend our values. Defend our freedoms. Defend our way of living.

Para medidas fortes e exemplares contra Durão Barroso por ter ido para a Goldman Sachs

Petição aberta a todos os cidadãos europeus até o final de Setembro de 2016 que apela a que sejam tomadas medidas fortes e exemplares contra José Manuel Durão Barroso, cujo comportamento desonra a função pública europeia e a própria União Europeia. NÃO EM NOSSO NOME! Somos um grupo de funcionários das instituições europeias, vinculados ao dever de confidencialidade e de discrição profissional, preocupados com a deterioração do projeto europeu entre as nossas famílias, amigos e vizinhos e de muitos mais cidadãos por toda a Europa. No passado dia 8 de julho de 2016, dias depois de o Reino-Unido ter votado para sair da UE, soubemos que José Manuel Durão Barroso - ex-presidente da Comissão Europeia durante dois mandatos, 10 anos - vai em breve assumir o cargo de presidente não-executivo das operações internacionais e consultor do banco de investimento Goldman Sachs com a tarefa maior de ajudar a limitar os efeitos negativos do Brexit. Esta decisão de aceitar assumir funções num dos bancos mais implicados na crise dos subprimes que desencadeou a crise financeira de 2007/2008 - a pior desde a Grande Depressão -, bem como num dos bancos mais envolvidos na crise da dívida grega, tendo ajudado a Grécia a dissimular o seu deficit para depois, em 2009/2010, ter especulado contra ele com pleno conhecimento da insustentabilidade da dívida, é mais um exemplo da prática irresponsável da “porta giratória” altamente prejudicial para as instituições da União Europeia e que, embora não seja ilegal, não deixa de ser moralmente repreensível. Tal decisão é irresponsável porque alimenta um contexto político que não é só de euroceticismo, mas sobremaneira de eurofobia, onde alguns representantes políticos - até da maioria no Parlamento Europeu - começam a questionar abertamente a existência da Comissão Europeia e do método comunitário que, noutras crises passadas, permitiram desde o Tratado de Roma construir a União Europeia e dar passos importantes. É altamente prejudicial para o projeto europeu e para as instituições europeias que, no delicado contexto atual das múltiplas crises que se acumulam - a crise dos refugiados e dos migrantes, a crise desencadeada pelo referendo do Reino-Unido, a crise económica e a crise sobre o tipo de Europa que queremos construir - um ex-Presidente da Comissão esteja associado aos valores desenfreados e antiéticos que a Goldman Sachs representa. Esta decisão surge no pior momento : é um sinal desastroso para a União e uma benesse para os eurofóbicos.   Trata-se de uma decisão moralmente repreensível na medida em que macula a honra e probidade de uma função pública europeia que é suposta defender o interesse geral europeu. Todos os ex-membros das instituições europeias estão obrigados a respeitar o dever de “integridade e discrição” nos termos do Tratado sobre o Funcionamento da União Europeia (TFUE) Artigo 245, mesmo depois de findo o período de 18 meses após cessarem funções. Acresce ainda o facto de José Manuel Durão Barroso ter sido nomeado duas vezes pelos Chefes de Estado e de Governo, bem como pelo Parlamento Europeu. Por todas estas razões, apelamos aos cidadãos europeus que assinem esta petição, pedindo às duas mais altas instâncias da Comunidade Europeia, o Conselho da União Europeia e o Colégio da Comissão Europeia, que levem esta questão ao Tribunal de Justiça da UE no âmbito do Artigo 245 do TFUE, de modo a: Não somente verificar que o Sr. Barroso cessou as funções há mais de 18 meses ; Examinar em detalhe e com toda a transparência se o Sr. Barroso tem respeitado os seus deveres de integridade e discrição relativamente à União Europeia ; Tomar, à luz destas conclusões, medidas fortes e exemplares adequadas contra José Manuel Durão Barroso tais como : A suspensão da sua reforma como ex-Presidente da Comissão Europeia durante o período em que exercer funções na Goldman Sachs e ulteriormente; A negação de todos os títulos honoríficos possíveis ligados às instituições europeias; O reforço das regras éticas de combate à prática da «porta giratória» por parte de ex-membros da Comissão Europeia, tendo em conta os danos que estes comportamentos têm para a função pública europeia e para a própria União Europeia, em particular o estabelecimento de regras mais rigorosas para os ex-presidentes e vice-presidentes. Esta petição, publicada no Change.org, será apresentada aos presidentes das três instituições europeias : a Comissão Europeia, o Parlamento Europeu e o Conselho da União Europeia, bem como aos representantes dos funcionários das instituições europeias. E, tal como apelamos a todos os cidadãos europeus que assinem e partilhem esta petição, lançamos também um apelo a todos os funcionários das instituições europeias que comungam das nossas preocupações, independentemente do seu estatuto, que apoiem esta petição (o anonimato dos funcionários será estritamente respeitado) e que eventualmente se juntem ao nosso grupo (o anonimato dos membros do grupo também será rigorosamente respeitado)  contactando-nos via EUemployees@gmail.com para que lancemos novas ações com o objetivo de reconciliar os cidadãos europeus com a União Europeia.

Save the European Union

We are born in Europe and we are the Erasmus Generation: we have never been asked for ID while crossing a border and we are used to choose where to study, work and live without questions. This is no dream to us: this is reality, the only reality we are aware of. Europe is home to us, the only Home we ever had and we won't allow anybody to take it away from us like it happened in the UK. We don't belong to any political party, we are young Europeans that decided to stand up as we are tired of the inactivity of our European Representatives while Our Country is falling apart one piece after the other: we are the only Future Europe has and from now on, we pretend to be listened. We call upon the EU leadership (namely Mr. Juncker, Mr. Schulz, Mr. Tusk) to develop before the end of 2016 an action plan defining milestones to be accepted by every national government in order to transform without further delays this broken union into the United States of Europe. We ‎ask anybody who sees Europe as Home to share this message everywhere, to sign the petition and to immediately take action as we are responsible for our own Future. Post this message & petition link on your FB, Instagram, Twitter, every other social media and tag your friends while asking them to do the same. Get in touch with any politician, MP, journalist, lobbyist, radio/tv/press/social media influencer you or your friends know and promote the petition and the initiatives of the Erasmus Generation. Erasmus Generation for the United States of Europe, our Future is in our Hands!

Help to bring peace to the Congo

Dear World Leaders, The time has come to materialize your commitment to bringing peace back to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). It is undeniable your efforts have helped improved the security situation in the Congo, particularly in the Eastern region of the country. However, it is important to remind you that the recurrent crisis in the DRC has cost an estimated five million lives. It is reported that from 1997 to the present more than five million people have died and millions of families have been torn apart because of the situation you all know. This petition aims to remind you of your commitments and responsibilities to the people of the Congo. The Congolese people would like you to demonstrate the same support that you have demonstrated in other regions of the world (e.g. Syria and Libya) in order to maintain peace and promote human rights and democracy. Indeed, the world has witnessed both your diplomatic and military efforts to restore democracy and peace in these countries. However, it seems like you choose to ignore the ongoing crisis in the Congo time and time again for unknown reasons. One believes that the Congo needs your full commitment and engagement like all other unstable regions of the World. As World Leaders you have the responsibility to equally grant attention to all regions in need of your assistance. Otherwise, should the world become a lawless place? Taking into consideration the above, one believes that the President of the Congo, Mr. Joseph Kabila is part of the problem in the ongoing crisis. Therefore, Mr. Kabila cannot be a part of the solution to maintain or improve peace, stability and democracy in the Congo. Mr. Kabila and his entourage have demonstrated several times their reluctance to organize the presidential election on time (27 November, 2016) as required by the Congolese’s constitution by using several political mechanisms that you all well-know. Maybe the fact that Mr. Kabila possesses an estimated net worth of 15 billion US Dollar (USD) in his offshore bank accounts has become an incentive to try to stay in power by any means. In contrast, should one remind you that millions of Congolese families cannot even afford one meal a day? Currently the Congo ranks low in the International Human Development Indicators (IHDI), the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI), the Fragile States Index (FSI) and it has been described as the rape capital of the world by human right leaders. This is just a short list of facts to remind you that Mr. Kabila has done little to improve quality of life of Congolese people during his 15 years’ tenure of power. Therefore, it is reasonable enough to recognize that Mr. Kabila cannot be a part of the solution to resolve the ongoing crisis in the Congo. Subsequently, all supporters of this petition demand that World Leaders (International Community) remove Mr. Kabila from the equation in order to organize the presidential election, promote democracy and bring peace back to the Congo. If there is any need for the Congo to go through a political transition, Mr. Kabila should not be the person to lead that transition. Finally, this petition invites you to consider alternative solutions to dealing with the current institutional crises in the Congo by using a few weeks’ voter registration process. Indeed, it is possible to successfully organize elections by registering voters only a few weeks before the elections using the same workforce and equipment put in place to facilitate the casting of votes. With your support there is still time to organize a presidential election in the Congo following the approach above. Please consider your responsibility to the issues raised in this petition and help the Congolese people to bring peace to their home again.   Very respectfully, The Congolese Community of Baltimore   Chers Dirigeants du Monde, Le temps est venu de matérialiser vos engagements pour ramener la paix en République Démocratique du Congo (RDC). Il est irréfutable que vos efforts ont quand même améliorés la situation sécuritaire au Congo, plus particulièrement dans la partie Est du Pays. Cependant, Il est important de vous rappeler que la crise actuelle au Congo a couté la vie à plus de cinq millions de personnes. En effet, depuis 1997 jusqu’à ce jour plus de cinq millions personnes sont déjà mortes et plusieurs milliers de familles congolaises ont été séparés par la crise que vous connaissez bien. Cette pétition a l’objectif de vous rappeler vos engagements et responsabilités envers le peuple Congolais. Les Congolais aimeraient que vous démontrer le même soutien que vous aviez démontré dans la gestion des crises dans d’autre régions du monde (par exemple en Syrie et en Lybie). En effet, le monde a été témoin de vos efforts militaires et diplomatiques pour restaurer la paix et la démocratie dans ces pays. Cependant, il semblerait par moment que vous choisissez d’ignorer la crise que traverse le Congo, pour des raisons qui nous sont inconnues. On croit que le Congo mérite tout votre engagement et une mobilisation sans faille comme toutes les autres zones instables du monde. En tant que Dirigeants du Monde, vous avez le devoir d’accorder votre attention aux régions qui ont besoin de votre assistance et cela de manière équitable. Le cas contraire, nous pousserai à nous poser la question de savoir si le monde est devenu une planète sans foi ni loi ? En tenant compte des remarques qui précèdent, on croit que le Président du Congo, Joseph Kabila est en partie responsable de la crise actuelle que travers le Congo. Par conséquent, il ne peut pas être inclus dans la résolution de cette crise, ni dans le rétablissement de la paix, la stabilité et la démocratie au Congo.  En effet, en utilisant les manœuvres politiques que vous connaissaient bien, Mr. Kabila et son entourage ont démontrés à de multiples reprises leurs réticences à organiser l’élection présidentiel à temps (27 Novembre 2016) comme prévu par la constitution Congolaise.  Peut-être le fait que Mr. Kabila possède à peu près 15 milliards de dollars américains dans ses comptes des paradis fiscaux est devenu une source de motivation pour essayer de s’accrocher au pouvoir par tous les moyens ? En revanche, faut-il vous rappeler qu’il y a des millions de Congolais qui n’ont pas les moyens de se nourrir ne serait-ce qu’une fois par jour ? Actuellement le Congo s’est placé au plus bas de la liste de l'Indice de Développement Humain (IDH), de l’Indice de Perception de la Corruption (CPI), Index des Pays Fragiles (IPF) et il est aussi décrit comme capitale mondiale du viol par les dirigeants des organisations humanitaires. Ceci représente seulement un échantillon de faits pour vous rappeler que Mr. Kabila a peu fait pour améliorer la qualité vie des Congolais durant les 15 années de pouvoir qu’il totalise.  Par conséquent, il est raisonnable de reconnaitre que Mr. Kabila ne peut pas faire partir de la solution pour résoudre la crise au Congo. C’est pourquoi tous les supporters de cette pétition demandent que les Dirigeants du Monde (la Communauté Internationale) retirent Mr. Kabila de l’équation qui doit mener à l’organisation de l’élection présidentiel, à la promotion de la démocratie et à restauration de la paix au Congo. S’il y a nécessité que le Congo organise une transition politique, Mr. Kabila ne doit pas être la personne qui va diriger le pays pendant cette transition. Finalement, cette pétition vous invite à considérer des solutions alternatives pour résoudre la crise institutionnelle actuelle en proposant un processus de registration des électeurs en quelque semaines. En effet, il est possible d’organiser des élections crédibles en enregistrant les électeurs quelques semaines avant la tenue des élections en utilisant le même personnel et matériel mit en place pour faciliter l’enregistrement des votes. Avec votre soutien et cette stratégie, il est possible d’organiser l’élection présidentiel à temps S’il vous plaît, veuillez considérer votre responsabilité afin de répondre aux demandes mentionnées dans cette pétition afin d’aider le peuple Congolais à restaurer la paix dans leurs maisons.   Nous vous prions de croire, Mesdames/Messieurs les Dirigeants du Monde, en l'assurance de nos considérations distinguées.

REFUGEES EMERGENCY / EMERGENCIA REFUGIADOS

REFUGEES wherever, they come from, are an EMERGENCY. They cannot be treated as an everyday standard. We, citizens of Europe, REQUIRE an IMMEDIATE Solution for the more than a MILION people asking for REFUGE and SHELTER. We, European citizens, ask to command the forces and resources to EMBRACE their needs, either gather their families or friends if they have, or giving them a place to start or stay. There are THOUSANDS of LITTLE TOWNS abandoned in Europe that could be repopulate, towns that are claiming for families with kids to ensure they can keep a school, for exemple...The UE, has the budget to give transportation & food until final destination. Destinations can be just decided by the UE as a percentage of their population. We also REQUIRE, to ENTAIL Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, to organize a SECURE Transportation to all people trying to avoid war by crossing Turkey to Greece.

An diesem Tag traten als Zeichen der Solidarität mit ihrer Kollegin sieben Abgeordneten der Versammlung ebenso in Hungerstreik [3].   Wie für alle Personen unter der Zuständigkeit von staatlichen Mitglieder des Europarates schützt Nadija Sawtschenko Instrumenten des Europarates insb. die Europäische Menschenrechtskonvention, die Entführungen sowie illegalen Transfers und Inhaftierungen unterbindet. Ferner wird Nadija Sawtschenko als Mitglied der Parlamentarischen Versammlung des Europarates durch die parlamentarische Immunität geschützt.   ************************************************************************************** [1] Alinéa 11 Resolution 2034 am 28/01/2015 durch die Parlamentarische Versammlung des Europarates (PACE) verabschiedet. [2] (…) die Versammlung forderte auch die russische Behörden auf, das ukrainische PACE-Mitglied „binnen 24 stunden freizulassen oder sie an ein Drittland zu übergeben“ Resolution 2034 APCE 28/01/2015 [3] P. Austrevicius (Litauen), G. Landsbergis (Litauen), Antanas Guoga (Litauen), Michaela Sojdrova (Tchechien), Paver Svoboda (Tchechien), Julia Pitera (Polen), Beatriz Becerra Basterrachea (Spanien).   **************************************************************************************   Russischen Behörden halten Nadija Sawtschenko, einem ukrainischen Abgeordneter und Mitglied der Parlamentarischen Versammlung des Europarats, die ihren Hungerstreik am 13. Dezember begonnen hat, in einem Haftzentrum in Voronezh, Russland in Verletzung aller anerkannten Normen des Völkerrechts. Frau Sawtschenko wurde von Terroristen der sog. „Volksrepublik Donezk“ eingefangen und in einem russischen Gefängnis gehalten. Sie ist derzeit beschuldigt, Informationen weitergegeben zu haben, die zu der Ermordung von zwei russischen Journalisten geführt haben sollen, nach dem aber am Anfang ihrer Inhaftierung sie mit ihrer Ermordung beschuldigt wurde.     Folgende Fragen ergeben sich:   1. Wie konnten bewaffnete Schläger einen Bürger der Ukraine durch die russische Grenze transportieren? Wie konnten russischer Grenzschutz und Zoll dies erlauben?   2. Wie könnten diese Terroristen den russischen Behörden einen Bürger eines anderen Landes übergeben? Warum wurden selbst die Entführer aus der nicht anerkannten „Volksrepublik Donetsk “ durch Russland festgenommen? Warum wurde ihr Opfer nicht zu einer diplomatischen Vertretung der Ukraine in Russland übergeben?   3. Welche sind die Gründe für die fortlaufende Inhaftierung eines illegal eingefangen und illegal über eine Staatsgrenze geschmuggelten Abgeordneter der Parlamentarischen Versammlung des Europarats? Wie kann ein russisches Gericht Zuständigkeit behaupten?   Wir fordern die sofortige Freilassung der ukrainischen Abgeordneten Nadia Nadija Sawtschenko und ihrer Rückkehr in ihr Heimatland, wie die Parlamentarische Versammlung des Europarats in seiner Resolution 2034 vom 28. Januar 2015 ebenso tut.   Wir fordern von der russischen Regierung eine Erklärung, eine offizielle Entschuldigung sowie Garantieren, dass solche gesetzlosen Handlungen nicht wiederholt werden. Wir fordern ebenso die gerichtliche Verfolgung der Verantwortlichen für dieses Verbrechen, vor allem der betroffenen russischen Beamten.   Andernfalls zeigt Russland, dass es nicht nur den internationalen Terrorismus unterstützt, sondern es auch daran direkt Teil nimm
