EUROPEAN REFERENDUM INITIATIVE

Petition for a Europe for the People – by the People

What is the background to this petition?

On November 13, 2007, more than 30 survivors of the extermination camp Auschwitz and other Nazi concentration camps met in Auschwitz for a one-day conference. Based on their unique moral credo, this extraordinary group of people decided to throw their weight into the discussion about Europe's future. In a solemn ceremony, they shared their experiences from the past and proposed a constitution for a "Europe for the People, by the People."

"This is not a political campaign but a question of morality" said August Kowalczyk, the founder of the Auschwitz Hospice Foundation (Fundacja Hospicjum Oswiecim) the main organizer of the conference.

What does the "Europe for the People, by the People" constitution call for?

The focus of this unique document is the protection of the health and lives of European citizens from corporate interests whose multi-billion dollar profits derive from turning the human body into a marketplace. The common denominators of these interests, which primarily include the pharmaceutical industry and the GM (genetically modified) food industry, are patented products that serve the interests of giant investment groups at the expense of the health and lives of millions of people. The constitution therefore calls for the right to health; the right to life; the right to natural food; the right to a healthy environment; respect for human dignity and the protection of social values.

Why is there a need for this initiative?

The debate over the Lisbon Treaty occurs at a time when the Auschwitz survivors are still giving their testimony as to the consequences of the disregard for human lives and the needs of people.

Europe was supposed to be built on the memory of the past and on the fundamental principle of a Europe for the people, by the people. As things stand, however, this principle is ever more regularly being violated and the world has become increasingly resistant to the Auschwitz survivors' testimony about hunger and misery, about annihilating slave labor, about war and hatred, and other Nazi crimes.

As is now documented on the Profit-Over-Life website, hundreds of thousands of men and women from across Europe imprisoned in concentration camps lost their lives as slave laborers during WWII in the name of corporate greed. Even more, tens of thousands of them lost their lives in pseudo-medical experiments conducted on prisoners in order to obtain patents for various drugs on behalf of the chemical cartel IG Farben, composed of Bayer, BASF, Hoechst and other companies. However, the historical successors to the IG Farben cartel continue to threaten the lives of millions today – yet by more subtle means.

The political stakeholders of the financial interest groups supporting the pharmaceutical industry, for example, such as George Bush and Nicolas Sarkozy, are now telling us to prepare for war and are openly discussing WWIII.

As such, if there was ever a time for European citizens to demand the right to health; the right to life; the right to natural food; the right to a healthy environment; respect for human dignity and the protection of social values – that time is now.
