  ROBERT  SCHUMAN  

Proclaimed   Father of Europe 

         by European Parliament 19 March 1958!

9 May 2013 SIXTY EIGHT YEARS OF PEACE:


Be thankful you live in THE LONGEST PERIOD OF PEACE and PROSPERITY in Western EUROPE'S HISTORY.     SIXTY THREE YEARS SINCE THE SCHUMAN DECLARATION TO   'MAKE WAR UNTHINKABLE AND MATERIALLY IMPOSSIBLE'

 For more than SIXTY YEARS the Great Charter of the Community initiating EUROPE'S DEMOCRATIC future has not been published!  

'Europe must in the near future introduce elections by direct universal suffrage of the members of the European Parliament who are to exercise powers of deliberation and control, in conformance with the Charter of the Community.' Robert Schuman, Pour l'Europe, p146. 

European Parliament is one of  FIVE key INDEPENDENT institutions in a supranational democracy including one single Europe-wide election under a single statute How the Council undemocratically 'fixes' its Parliament.

Why did the EU 'forget' to celebrate its democratic principles?  

The European Commission, the Council, the Parliament and the Consultative Committees ALL 'forget' to celebrate the 60th anniversary of their birth in 2012 -- the year the Nobel Committee reminded the by awarding the Peace Prize!

THE DEMOCRATIC VISION FOR EUROPE 
Why is Europe in a crisis following the No of French,  Dutch  Irish referendums? In 1963 Robert Schuman, the initiator of today's European Union, warned that political counterfeiters were already undermining the new European democracy. How? You need to read the surprising answers in this Open Letter sent to all the presidents of European institutions and heads of all 25 member states! ISBN 0952727668 

 

 
NEW BOOK shows: On 5 May1949, at St James's Palace, London, Schuman announced to all Foreign Ministers of the Council of Europe and all foreign ambassadors present that European cooperation would soon lead to a Community,  'a vast and enduring SUPRANATIONAL union'.   It would ensure the peace and independence of democratic countries by mutual support and agreement. It would encourage positive patriotism.
On 16 May 1949 in Strasbourg, he explained that this 'great experiment' would fulfil the dream of Europeans over ten centuries for 'enduring peace'. A 'European Community' would reconcile nations in a 'supranational association'. He concluded: 'This new policy probably constitutes the supreme attempt to save our continent and preserve the world from suicide.
He announced the  COMING CENTURY OF SUPRANATIONAL COMMUNITIES:  Extracts of speech.
On 9 May1950, he presented the SCHUMAN PROPOSAL, after French Government's favourable Decision, to Parliament. Then he made a suprise announcement on the radio and explained it before the world's press. It invited all European countries to join in the 'gathering of European nations' by creating a supranational European Community based on a democratic European rule of law at first in the coal and steel sector. It would make war not only unthinkable but materially impossible, and reconcile, unify, develop, transform Europe and serve its populations and world development in prosperity and peace. 
On 18 April 1951: Six founder Member States, after signing the Treaty that had been voted in all their Parliaments, pledged that this, the 'first supranational institution,' laid the TRUE FOUNDATION for an organised Europe 'open to all states that are free to decide'.
These speeches are reproduced in the NEW  Book:  'Schuman or Monnet? The real Architect of Europe'
