The European Union

The Real Face Of The EU

THE EU HAS BEEN SOLD TO BRITAIN AS OUR BEST HOPE FOR THE FUTURE…. But behind the scenes, has another, more unsettling agenda been unfolding? The European Economic Community (EEC) began for Britain as a free-trade agreement in 1972. Today’s European Union is well on its way to becoming a federal superstate, complete with one currency, one legal system, one military, one police force – even its own national anthem. In this shocking new documentary featuring EU insiders and commentators, independent author Phillip Day covers the history and goals of the European Union, as well as the disturbing, irrevocable implications this new government has for every British citizen. Whether the viewer is for or against Britain’s participation, this film asks the troubling questions the mainstream media has refused to confront.

Chinese Capital: Good or Bad Influence in Greece?

Economic Crisis: Is Spain Next?

Spain's economy has been weakened due to heavy debts and bailouts since the economic crisis began across Europe. According to Moody's, Spanish economic status is almost classified as junk. Currently, the country's unemployment rate sits at nearly 22 percent. Meanwhile, Spanish miners are losing their jobs and they have organized a thousand-man march to Madrid in protest against deteriorating conditions. In this week's INFocus, we travel to Spain, a country that is facing Greek-style economic devastation.

Austerity is killing in Portugal; the real face of the rescue programme

In addition to the institutional issues, beyond the street demonstrations expressing discontent and resistance, in addition to the speeches, there is a reality in Portugal that remains ignored by European peoples. We are currently over 1 million three hundred thousand unemployed from a population of 10 million. Every day the number of people without access to health care and unable to purchase medicines is growing . Every day the number of families without access to water is growing. Every day a growing number of families have to relinquish their homes to the banks, while continuing to pay the loans. At the same time, legislation has been changed to allow rents to be increased. Freedom of information is compromised, either through the sale of public channels or by drastic cuts in funding. Repression is increasing. The suicide rate is growing.This is a reality that needs to be known and publicised.

Portuguese people fight back against austerity measure of the troika

Rui Faustino is a librarian and a civil servant in Lisbon. He talks about the economic crisis in Portugal as part of the general crisis of European capitalism. The government is implementing the demands of the troika (IMF, ECB, EU) by attacking the conditions and rights of the workers and youth, which leads to a social disaster. Meanwhile unemployment is rising to a record high. The workers and youth fought back on several occasions with demonstrations and general strikes. He is proposing a united front of the Left Block (Bloco de Esquerda) and the Communist Party against the austerity measures in breaking with the capitalist conception of Europe.

Made in Italy

As Italy's elections hit a stalemate, this report produced immediately before the vote offers a strong insight to the issues at the heart of the deadlock. Featuring all 4 of the top players, it explores a fragile economy and pantomime politics.

"A lot of our leaders look like they arrived yesterday from the moon. Instead, they've been in a crucial position for 20 years." Chairman of Ferrari, Luca di Montezemolo, is deeply frustrated. Along with a number of other top Italian entrepreneurs, he believes that 'brand Italy' is being tarnished across Europe by the country's poor political leadership. "Berlusconi has been a big delusion. He announced the liberal revolution and unfortunately he didn't do it." Italy changes governments like a Milan model changes outfits and now that it's all up for grabs again this weekend, is there really much of a chance any of the four front-runners can change things for the better? Bersani, the man many are tipping to lead Italy after the elections, says his top priority will be to repeal laws that have allowed Berlusconi to avoid prison, despite having more than 100 cases brought against him. Yet Berlusconi's chances are improving in the polls and it's expected his party will control the Senate. Meanwhile, current leader Mario Monti, the man they call 'Super Mario' after he pulled Italy back from the brink of economic collapse, looks set to be thrown out by voters. "I cannot claim to have the glamour and the ability to entertain audiences that my predecessor, Mr Berlusconi, is very excellent at," Monti shrugs. Whatever the result this weekend, it is sure to be a dramatic battle.

The Mafia Is Trashing Italy... Literally

In the city of Naples, Italy, the Mafia has controlled the waste-management industry for decades -- dumping and burning trash across its rolling hills and vineyards. In 1994, the European Union declared the situation an official environmental emergency, and things have only gotten worse since then. When we investigated the situation we found mutated sheep, poisoned mozzarella, alarming rates of cancer, and pissed off farmers ready to push back against the Camorra, Italy's most powerful and dangerous criminal organization (and the government that enables it).

China's influence in Europe

Li Keqiang, China's vice premier, began the first leg of his European tour on Tuesday, starting with a three-day visit to Spain, and the unlikely allies are set to announce a series of economic agreements. But what is really behind Beijing's move? Is China buying political influence in Europe?

Debt and Redemption

 All over Europe, governments dressed up their accounts by buying exotic financial products from major investment banks. Then came the crash. Debt and Redemption shows how local authorities in Italy are struggling with the disastrous aftermath of their deals. The city of Milan has decided to strike back by charging four banks with fraud. The banks, as a matter of course, deny any wrongdoing. Marije Meerman visits Milan and the village Polino Italy and travels to the US, where she speaks to writer/journalist Matt Taibbi (Rolling Stone, Griftopia), investor/blogger Reggie Middleton (Boombustblog) and former IMF economist Simon Johnson (13 Bankers: The Wall Street Takeover and the Next Financial Meltdown).

The EU and the Nobel Peace Prize

WHEN the Nobel committee awarded its peace prize to Barack Obama in 2009, many wondered why it had been given to a man who, still at the start of his presidency, had not yet achieved anything. Today many might ask themselves why the it has been awarded to an institution whose most ambitious project, the euro, is failing so badly. As one wag put it on Twitter, “Note that the EU does NOT win the Nobel Economics Prize.”
The crisis may yet destroy the euro and, with it, much of the European integration project. It is creating economic pain in the most troubled countries. The unemployment rate in Greece and Spain has passed 25%. Resentment is growing between creditor and debtor countries. Protesters in Greece this week greeted Angela Merkel dressed in Nazi uniform.
Across the EU, popular support for the European project is falling. Britain is openly talking of loosening its ties with the union. Mario Monti, Italy's prime minister, wants to convene a summit to combat falling support for European integration. In Norway, where the prize announcement was made, a spokesman for the Nobel committee admitted public support for joining the EU was at an all-time low.
So the Nobel committee's prize is really meant as a reminder of what the EU has achieved in helping to transform Europe “from a continent of war to a continent of peace”. And it is meant as a warning not to let it be swept away in the face of the “emergence of extremism and nationalism”.
