EUKRAINE NOW - The Appeal and the letter of the Ukrainian Students

Post by VirginiaFiume »

During EUMANS Weekly Meeting on the 24th of March at 7 PM we will discuss the launch of the appeal for Ukraine. You can join the meeting at this link https://zoom.us/s/97771031515




EUKRAINE NOW!
Appeal for the immediate accession of Ukraine to the European Union and citizenship for the Ukrainians

We, the undersigned people who live in Europe, support the Ukrainian request to join the European Union. Given the ongoing war, we urge European leaders and institutions to speed up the examination procedure and approve the request of the candidate country as a matter of urgent concern. The EU institutions should do everything possible to guarantee European citizenship rights to the Ukrainians. It will be a powerful symbolic and political signal of openness and inclusiveness in line with the ideals of sustainable peace, freedom, democracy and the Rule of Law of the EU and its people.

Explanatory Statement
The “Eukraine Now” appeal advocates an urgent popular and institutional action for Ukraine's admission as a member of the European Union.

Urgent measures can only take place through the prescribed legislative procedures and by activating the competent institutions.

For this reason our appeal to the EU governments and EU institutions is focused on the priority of the most immediate actions regarding the procedure to accept Ukraine’s membership request.

In a perspective realization of "sustainable peace", these actions must be accompanied by long-term reforms necessary to relaunch a stronger Europe in a peaceful world through the active involvement and participation of European citizens.

The conflict in Ukrainian, as with any war or emergency, deserves the highest level of information and transparency and citizens must be involved in an open and informed debate on its developments and related issues.

A number of recommendations adopted at the Conference urge the need to enhance mechanisms for regular citizens’ participation and consultation at EU level. In particular recommendations 18 and 39 adopted by European Citizens’ Panel 2 “European democracy / Values and rights, rule of law, security”, that requested the introduction of a EU Referendum and a EU Citizens’ Assembly.

Ukraine's request to become a EU member may become the object of an EU referendum or an EU Citizens' Assembly. In addition to this, a specific EU Citizens' Assembly should address broader reforms with respect to the geopolitics of Europe, such as common defense policy and common energy policy, included in recommendations 2 and 20 of the European Citizens' Panel 4 "EU in the World / Migration".

As the Ventotene Manifesto stated some 80 years ago, never again children should have been “taught to handle weapons and to hate what is foreign” ot that individual liberty would be reduced to “practically nought since everyone is part of the military establishment and constantly subject to recall in the armed forces”.

Wars continue to force “men to abandon families, jobs, property, often demanding the ultimate sacrifice for reasons of which no one really understands the value”. Our Europe was created to end all this.

In these dire times reactions to the war should be exceptional, urgent as well as forward looking. Ukranians deserve it, all the people at risk of the expansion of the current conflict deserve it.

Dear Virginia,

I read the Appeal and it seems very interesting. Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend the meeting on the 24th, is the recording available?
If it is I'll be glad to watch it and perhaps it will answer some of my questions.

My main doubt is about the timing of the appeal.

I assume that the duration of the process to welcome Ucraine in the EU is in the magnitude of years (unless we decide to ignore the Copenhagen Criteria but that is a very problematic issue that has to be debated at length).
I understand that in this particular historical moment we may be able to "ride the wave" and be able to collect many signatures for the appeal but I wonder if it will be of value in the longer run, when the decisive moments for the entrance of Ukraine will come.

I guess the particular sentence that I would personally cut from the text is: "Given the ongoing war, we urge European leaders and institutions to speed up the examination procedure and approve the request of the candidate country as a matter of urgent concern."

Maybe rather than appealing for the entrance of Ukraine itself it should be more focused on the creation of some sort of "European Citizenship" (as specified in the second part of the appeal?).

Thank you,
Nicola

Dear @nicolamorawetz ,
Thank you for your feedback! yes, the addition of the urgent "citizenship rights" guarantee is in the short term more "achievable" and it could be grounded on the recently issued Communication of the European Commission on the Directive for Temporary Emergency Measures and its adoption in EU Member States https://ec.europa.eu/commission/pressco ... fqDEpvqFrU

It is important to push for the appeal because it also portrays a full vision of Europe.

This will be the topic of the meeting we have tomorrow at 7 PM - usual link https://zoom.us/s/97771031515

In the meantime as food for thoughts on the topics that you mentioned:
1- Recording of last week meeting before the launch
2- Official link for the appeal https://eukrainenow.eu
3- Event launch yesterday
4- Article from our partners at ECIT Foundation on the Citizenship issue https://eumans.eu/being-citizens-europe

Cheers,

Virginia

EUkrainenow - Mobilisation on the 28th of May?

Post by VirginiaFiume »

This is a reminder for the EUMANS Weekly Meeting that we will hold tonight Thursday 21st of April at 7 PM CET on Zoom. https://zoom.us/s/97771031515

This week Ukraine completed its EU membership questionnaire, setting another milestone for Union accession: now, with the ball in Member States' court, it is the time when we citizens need to show our support to make sure Ukrainians become European citizens with no delay!

The EUkrainenow.eu appeal for immediate accession to the EU and citizenship for the Ukrainians can be signed online. Now it is time to bring it to the streets and show that we care!

During the meeting tonight at 7 PM CET on Zoom we will discuss how to prepare a pan-European mobilization on the 28th of May.
