On the eve of the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, which
established the EEC (one of the European Union’s precursors), European
leaders will hold a summit to discuss the question of how to keep the
European Union together and chart a course for the future.
In the run up to the meeting, the leaders of the lower chambers of
parliament of Germany, Italy, France, and Luxembourg have called for a
European “Federal Union” in an open letter published in the Italian newspaper
La Stampa. In the letter, four representatives of EU governments – Claude
Bartolone of the French National Assembly, Laura Boldrini of the Italian
Chamber of Deputies, Norbert Lammert of the German Bundestag, and Mars Di
Bartolomeo of the Luxembourg Chamber of Deputies – say that closer cooperation
is essential for dealing with problems that no one EU state can tackle on its
own, such as immigration, terrorism, and climate change.
“Now is the moment to move towards closer political integration — the
Federal Union of States with broad powers. We know that the prospect stirs up
strong resistance, but the inaction of some cannot be the paralysis of all.
Those who believe in European ideals, should be able to give them a new life
instead of helplessly observing its slow sunset,” the letter read.
They also warned that the European integration project is currently
more at risk than ever before, with high unemployment and immigration
problems driving populist and nationalist movements. The EU must also come to
grips with the fact that the United Kingdom decided to leave the union.
In 1957, Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, West Germany and the
Netherlands signed the Treaty of Rome, which eventually paved the way for the
Maastricht Treaty and the European Union in 1991.
In September of 2015, Lammert, Bartolone, Boldrini and di Bartolomeo
also signed a declaration calling for deeper and faster European integration,
even as greater European integration is being challenged by Eurosceptic
parties around the continent.
The EU is actually a Roman Catholic project designed to resurrect the
Holy Roman Empire with all its religious as well as political trappings.
European leaders, including heads of state as well as prime ministers and
others will meet with the pope on March 24, seeking his wisdom before they have
their summit in Rome on March 25th. Where is it leading?
