Peace Project Europe


Objective

Our new Europe - with and for us citizens throughout Europe!

 

1.   A diverse, democratic, constantly evolving, flexible Europe, open to the world, in which we citizens determine, in referenda, the European issues we want to resolve ourselves in referenda: e.g. our country's role in Europe, a new European Constitution, the entry of new member countries (Turkey, Ukraine, Belarus, Balkans...), the euro/European taxes, immigration, climate change and pandemics!

 

2.   A prosperous, strong, subsidiary and free Europe from Vladivostok to Reykjavik, in which all European countries cooperate peacefully, efficiently, to the benefit of all European peoples, according to the will of us, citizens.

 

3.   A Europe that takes us seriously as its sovereign, responsible, self-confident, empowered citizens and as convinced, emancipated and critical Europeans - since we shall have the last word in our new Europe - with the ballot sheet! 

 

 

 

Path

Democratic - with millions of citizens in 51 European countries

 I. Ukraine/Corona/climate reset for a new, diverse, democratic Europe in the 21st century!

  • 2022 - Viral Citizens' revolt: Millions of citizens from Vladivostok to Reykjavik call on our-new-europe.eu/en for peaceful cooperation that will bring prosperity to all European countries in a new, diverse, democratic Europe (Democratic Manifesto)
  • 2023 - Epoch-making change: The politicians elected in the next European elections (and in non EU countries like in Russia, Ukraine, UK, Switzerland,..) join their citizens and go down in history as the founders of a new Europe, who take their citizens seriously and make their country and Europe beacons in the world for Democracy, peace, freedom and prosperity, human rights and human dignity!

II. Democratic implementation with referenda - bottom-up - throughout Europe!

  • 2024 - First pan-European referendum on the fundamental question:
    "Which place shall your country take in the new Europe: in the politically integrated core Europe, or in the common market, or in a large European free trade zone from Vladivostok to Reykjavik?"
  • European Constitution:
    2025: Election of the Constitutional Council in democratic elections in all participating countries 
    2030: Ratification of the Constitution in national referendums in all participating countries
  • 2031 - First European elections of the each country's members in the European Parliament.

 

1. "Never waste a good crisis!"

 

In the new Europe, crises - especially Corona and climate change - are used as opportunities to resolve conflicts, strengthen democracy and to create a peaceful, prosperous cooperation that serves all European countries - by means of referenda:

  1. The refugee crisis will finally be successfully and sustainably overcome with a humanitarian, common, flexible European asylum and refugee policy. A new Refugee Union of like-minded European countries and voluntary agreements with the rest of Europe are intended to strengthen border protection and reduce the influx of refugees and asylum seekers, thanks, in particular, to effective measures to promote the economic development in the countries of origin and transit of the refugees. 
    ddddd
  2. The euro crisis serves to create a close economic, monetary and fiscal union (EMU) with the euro, a European economic government and common taxes in the member countries willing to integrate. All other European countries (incl. Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Turkey, Great Britain, Switzerland, etc.) are invited to join the European free trade area or the common market/economic area (EEA - with the free movement of goods, services and capital, but without the free movement of people and without the euro). The resulting diverse and intensive economic cooperation and free trade bring prosperity, stability and peace to the whole continent!
    dddddd
  3. Experience with the  Corona pandemic shows that, in order to combat future pandemics more effectively and more successfully, every country must prepare without delay the necessary emergency laws and an emergency organization, i.e. flexible, efficient national laws that are adapted to local and national circumstances, supported by the citizens and approved in referenda  as well as an experienced and well-trained national crisis organization that can be deployed at short notice at any time. - At the European level, unbureaucratic, readily available and flexible support must be ensured, at the UNO/WHO an efficient, independent global pandemic monitoring and alarm system.
    ddd
  4. In order to prevent the climate apocalypse conjured up by Greta Thunberg and the climate youth, Europe must go ahead with a climate program that has the maximum global effect: In the "Citizens' Climate Alliance", the Europeans should, united with all willing citizens worldwide, as consumers and citizens at all levels of government (municipality, region, nation, UNO) commit themselves to create an efficient, globally sustainable climate protection program, including, specifically. a "climate cent" of willing countries on fossil fuels to finance the most effective climate protection measures, particularly in the poorest parts of the world, and to climate-friendly international cooperation including emission certificates, as well as an independent global UN climate monitoring.

  5. In the Ukraine war, the West's strategy of confrontation with Russia - massive rearmament and accelerated NATO eastward expansion, the supply of more and more modern weapons to Ukraine and ever tougher sanctions - is not leading to the unconditional surrender of Russia the West is aiming for. There is rather a growing risk of an endless war of attrition with daily increasing numbers of victims on both sides, the annexation of some fervidly contested regions in the East and South of Ukraine by Russia, as Crimea in 2014, the blockade of the Ukrainian Black Sea ports and grain exports and the resulting famines in Africa, the blockade of Russian gas supplies to Europe, triggering a catastrophic global economic crisis, as well as a new Cold War and, in the worst case, MAD, the mutually guaranteed annihilation in a nuclear inferno!

    A compromise saving the face of both sides is therefore required, based on the Minsk Agreement of 2015, signed also by Russia and Ukraine (incl. referenda: in Ukraine on a confederal, democratic, neutral state under the rule of law; in Luhansk, Donetsk, Mariupol... on their belonging to Russia or Ukraine) - and demanded by millions of citizens in the East and the West, ready to fight persistently for a peaceful, prosperous cooperation of all European countries - incl. Russia, Belarus and Ukraine - in a common European house according to Vladimir Putin's proposal 2001 in the German Bundestag - for our European Peace Project, which we, empowered citizens, will implement together throughout Europe - virally e-democratically with referenda - and which will shine for peace, freedom, democracy, human rights and human dignity throughout the world!

2. A democratic Constitution

2.2  The Citizens' Constitution

 

The Constitution is the legal basis for the European peace project - a new, democratic, diverse, sustainable and prosperous Europe open to all European countries:

  • The starting point for this new Europe is today's European Union (EU), with its crises and plans for further political integration, especially in the areas of economy and society, migration and, based on the experiences with Brexit, Corona and the impending climate apocalypse, also in the areas of health, climate, foreign and defense policy.
    xxx
  • Citizens have the last word In the new Europe on all important issues, with referenda, e.g. on the entry and exit from the community, the euro, refugees, climate and Corona (direct democracy).
    xxx
  • The Constitution must be created democratically: First of all, It must be drafted and adopted by a Constitutional council (elected by the citizens of all participating countries); thereafter, it has to ratified  by referenda in each country and finally implemented through referenda with the active participation of the citizens.
    xxx
  • Conclusion: The Constitution must above all be understandable for the "normal citizen" and short. All details have to be regulated at the level of legislation and ordinances. - With 16 pages and 21 paragraphs, the new European Constitution does this better than the EU Constitution of 2005 with 454 pages and 448 paragraphs. - In terms of length, but also of content, the European Constitution is primarily inspired by the Swiss federal Constitution:


2.2   A  Swiss-like Constitution

 

The new Europe and its Constitution are based on the centuries-long Swiss experience as world champion in matters of referenda, initiatives, federalism and armed neutrality, in which the new Europe differs most significantly from today's EU:

  • Direct democracy is based crucially on the trust created through referenda between the state and its citizens . - The EU, however, strictly rejects EU-wide referenda and time and again even gets involved  in unwelcome national referenda and elections in its member countries!
    xxx
  • Decentralized confederation - federalism - subsidiarity: In the new Europe, member countries keep their very different internal structures and institutions (e.g. parliamentary democracy) and can thus strengthen  strengthen their national independence (apart from the politically integrated core Europe). - EU member states, on the other hand, are handing over more and more competences and power to  "Brussels"!
    xxx
  • Armed neutrality: The global peace power Europe commands its own army to maintain its security and independence, to prevent wars and to strengthen peace in the world, aiming to become a beacon for democracy, peace and freedom, human rights and human dignity in the world. - The EU in contrast, is striving for the role of a new global superpower USE on an equal footing with the USA, China and Russia!

3. Referenda - the Citizen's Sword of Damocles

3.1 Create Trust!

 

There is no true democracy without mutual trust between the state and its citizens - and there is no better way to create and reinforce such a trust than referenda - since:

 

Nothing strengthens democracy, peace and freedom and the commitment of citizens to Europe, their sense of belonging together and their democratic responsibility for the new Europe, as well as the certainty to be taken seriously by this Europe, like regular constitutionally determined referenda, in which citizens throughout Europe can decide freely (after broad and open, instructive campaigns) on all essential European issues! - Switzerland is proving this every quarter!

 

On the other hand, nothing frustrates, offends and hurts citizens more than politicians who ignore, disregard, reject, launch - or misuse referenda for their own purposes and careers, or even repeat them, until the results suit them! - Unfortunately, this happens time and again - not only in the EU!

 

 

3.2 Let's Take Responsibility!

 

The EU is purposefully using Corona and the climate crisis as a its own unique opportunity for a spectacular push towards its centralization - at the expense of its member countries and citizens:

 

  • With the €750 billion Corona reconstruction fund "Next Generation Europe", the EU is subsidizing, coordinating and controlling its member countries and their citizens top-down!
    ddd
  • In climate policy, the EU wants to take the lead worldwide with its "Green Deal", implement the goals of the Paris climate agreement top-down and transform member countries' economies  and their citizens' lifestyles!
    ddd
  • With a common defense and foreign policy and its own armed forces, the EU wants to become а global superpower USE - on an equal footing with the USA, China and Russia! 

Conclusion: Brussels wants more and more power, but certainly no referendа (a nightmare!), more and more unity, but no freely and diversely cooperating countries ("cherry pickеrs"), more and more patronized citizens in top-down lockdown, but no empowered, self-responsible, committed Europeans ("overwhelmed") .

 

A Europe of the citizens, with and for the citizens, will only exist if many millions of committed, responsible, citizens throughout Europe demand a new Europe, take responsibility and implement it bottom-up with the sword of Damocles in referenda - together with compliant politicians!

 

 

 

 

 Referenda turn Patronized Subjects into Responsible Citizens 

and Party Soldiers, Plutocrats, Bureaucrats, Autocrats, Eurocrats into Servants of the People! 

 

  • Sovereign empowered citizens are taken seriously by Europe because citizens can decide all important European issues (possibly also at national level) by means of referenda!

  • Power-hungry politicians become real servants of the people - under the sword of Damocles of referenda and staunchly fight for the new Europe of the citizens, with and for the citizens!

  • Peacefully cooperating countries, regions and communities take over the power in Brussels and definitely destroy the EU's superpower dreams of a United States of Europe (USE)!

  • The European peace project uses crises as opportunities to strengthen freedom and peace, democracy and welfare, human rights and human dignity - thanks to referenda!
 

 

 

4. We shall do it!

4.1 We Millions of Citizens across Europe!

 

All Europeans who are of the opinion that a lot has to change urgently and drastically in Europe - also with a view on Corona and climate change - because only a diverse democratic Europe can have a chance of survival and success in the 21st century - they all are asked to get involved, above all: 

  1. All anxious EU supporters aiming to avoid the EU's paralysis and collapse and to strengthen Europe as a peace project and a community of values are asked to campaign for their country's participation in the politically integrated core Europe!
    ddd
  2. All EU opponents who want their country to benefit from the successful cooperation in a new, diverse Europe  are asked to campaign for their country's participation in the European free trade area or in the new common market!
    ddd
  3. All EU citizens who want to go to the polls more than once every 5 years (at the "European elections") must fight tor their right to launch a referendum on all important European (and if possible increasingly also national) issues and crises!
    ddd
  4. All non-EU/EEA Europeans (incl. Russians, Ukrainians, Belarusians, Turks, Britons, Swiss...) who want to participate in a peaceful, prosperous Europe from Vladivostok to Reykjavik must fight as sovereign citizens of independent nations for their right to determine by referendum their country's role in Europe!
    ddd
  5. All citizens frustrated by the EU who want to be in charge in Europe must join the viral democratic manifesto and a European citizens' revolt online, infect all Europe, incl. "Brussels" with their virus of direct democracy and seize power by means of referenda, together with millions of  activists ready to fight for democracy throughout Europe!
     

4.2 Our Peace Project!

 

We, millions of empowered, responsible, committed citizens across Europe shall now implement our peace project - democratically, by means of referenda, bottom-up:

    xxx
  2. Our subsidiary, decentralized, confederal Europe, in which we citizens throughout Europe live, maintain and strengthen our European identity, our common values and the richness of our cultures, languages and traditions every day.
    xxx
