Competitive European Peripheries
And replace the current treaties with new ones in the context of a genuinely democratic constituent process so as to achieve a pact of solidarity among peoples that is mindful of both employment and the environment. We must thoroughly revise the monetary policy as well as the status and practice of the ECB. The inability of the political power to force the ECB to create money is a heavy handicap. When it set the ECB above governments and thus above the peoples, the EU made a disastrous choice: it subjected man to money instead of the other way round.
Croatia’s Political and Economic Situation – The Periphery of Europe Today
A Europe based on solidarity and cooperation must allow us to turn away from competition, which draws all standards down. The neoliberal logic has resulted in the crisis and proved a failure. It pushed social indicators down: less social protection, fewer jobs, less public services. The minority that benefited from the crisis did so by tramping on the rights of others. Those who are guilty are rewarded while victims have to pay!
We must change this untenable logic, on which all founding texts of the EU are based, with the Stability and Growth Pact in the lead. More than ever, we must strive toward another Europe, based on cooperation among states and solidarity among peoples. This new democratized Europe must strive to establish non negotiable principles.
Western European countries agreed to place their armed forces within a defence system under US command, and thus recognize the preponderance of the USA.
In , GMOs were planted over more than 40 million hectares, three quarters of that being soybeans and maize. Genetically modified plants are usually produced intensively for cattle fodder for the rich countries.
Their existence raises three problems. The health problem.

Apart from the presence of new genes whose effects are not always known, resistance to a herbicide implies that the producer will be increasing use of the herbicide. GMO products especially American soybeans end up gorged with herbicide whose effects on human health are unknown. Furthermore, to incorporate a new gene, it is associated with an antibiotic-resistant gene. Healthy cells are heavily exposed to the herbicide and the whole is cultivated in a solution with this antibiotic so that only the modified cells are conserved.
The legal problem. GMOs are only being developed on the initiative of big agro-business transnationals like Monsanto, who are after the royalties on related patents.
Competitive European Peripheries
They thrust aggressively forward, forcing their way through legislation that is inadequate to deal with these new issues. Farmers then become dependent on these firms. States protect themselves as best they can, but often go along with the firms, and are completely at a loss when seed thought not to have been tampered with is found to contain GMOs.
Thus, genetically modified rape seed was destroyed in the north of France in May Advanta Seeds. Genetically modified maize on ha in the southern French department of Lot et Garonne was not destroyed in June Golden Harvest. The food problem. GMOs are not needed in the North where there is already a problem of over-production and where a more wholesome, environmentally friendly agriculture needs to be promoted. They are also useless to the South, which cannot afford such expensive seed and the pesticides that go with it, and where it could completely disrupt traditional production.
It is clear, as is borne out by the FAO, that hunger in the world is not due to insufficient production. They were joined by Greece in , Slovenia in , Cyprus and Malta in , Slovakia in , and Estonia in Committee for the Abolition of Illegitimate Debt.
