DOCUMENT PREPARED BY MEMBERS OF EUROPEAN PARLIAMENTS FOR A UNITED EUROPE

Vladimir Zeman

The undersigned,

Are convinced that the great problems of the world and of Europe today - from environmental emergency to genocide through hunger, from the major differences in economic and social development between various countries to the vast criminality tied to the traffic of drugs, from the uncontrollable migrations which are a result of the conditions of total lack of democracy in which a large part of mankind still live - impose the creation of multinational institutions and new internationals, as well as a reinforcement of the existing ones;

Are convinced that Europe cannot limit itself to being an abstract idea, a general ambition, an attractive word, but should find its concrete reality in true European democratic institutions;

Are convinced anyhow that the birth of the Single European Market on the 1st of January 1993, could involve the danger of an increased inequality of the economic development between the "twelve" and other European countries, above all those that have only recently acquired democracy, after years of authoritarian regimes and centralized economies, unless real European federal institutions come to support the Single Market, if, that is, the Euroepan Community does not transform soon into the European Federal Union, thereby including all the democratic countries of the continent.

Are convinced that the growth of the European Community toward countries in central and eastern Europe can interest not only these countries but also, and primarily, the existing Community countries, if, thanks to the growth, the Community can proceed more rapidly toward the transformation of the Community in a Federal European entity.

Are convinced that the role of the parlamentary assemblies of the European countries is, and should be, of central importance in the process of European integration - as the parliamentary initiatives in the various countries of the European Community have already demonstrated in the last few years - in order, also, to give voice to the citizens of Europe in a process which risks being managed exclusively by the governments and thier bureaucracies, away from the democratic institutional control.

WE DECLARE

That the priority of our parlamentary commitment will be to work for a rapid entrance into the European Community in order for it to become a real forum for democracy and common right for all the citizens and people of Europe.

WE COMMIT OURSELVES;

- To fulfil all the parlamentary and political initiatives, together with the colleagues of all the parliaments in Europe in order to accellerate the European integration;

- to summon an Assembly of representatives of the parliaments of European countries with new political democracy, similarly to The Hague in 1948 with the Congress of the People of Europe, with the aim of re-enforcing and spreading the European parliamentarians movement for the European federalist union and for the affirmation of the character of the new European constitution which must indispensibly be democratic and parliamentarian, also with the respect and affirmation of each and every collective and individual right confirmed by international treaties on the rights of the individual;

- to constitute ourselves in "Interparliamentarian intergroup for the entrance into the European Community and for the European Federal Union", open to all parliamentarians, whichever group they belong to; joining this intergroup would not signify renouncing membership in one's own political party or parliamentary group;

- to inform the voters every two months, via newspapers, radio and television, of the results obtained.
