Political Union framework emerging.

Towards a political union of Europe. Official source.

The idea that the European Union should speak with one voice in world affairs is as old as the European integration process itself. But the Union has made less progress in forging a common foreign and security policy over the years than in creating a single market and a single currency. The geopolitical changes following the collapse of communism and the outbreak of regional crises in the Balkans and beyond led EU members to redouble efforts to speak and act as one. A new framework is emerging

Here are some interesting links:

www.worldpress.org - World Press contains news articles from a broad spectrum of journalistic sources from far right to far left and everything in between. I do endorse this organization.

Try also - http://www.worldpress.org/gateway.htm - access to several hundred online services from the world's newpapers.


www.motherjones.com - Mother Jones is an independent nonprofit whose roots lie in a commitment to social justice implemented through 'first rate' (and I hope thorough and independent) investigative reporting. Mother Jones Magazine and Motherjones.com are made possible, in large part, by the support of the Foundation for National Progress and through donations from individual readers like its readers. Conservatives consider this organization 'Liberal'.

www.axisoflogic.com - Axis of logic claims to be "comprised of an all-volunteer group of writers and editors who are committed to publishing news and commentary that is often not presented in the major news outlets.
Axisoflogic said:
We research news and opinion from around the world on a daily basis. We also announce action alerts, conferences and seminars. The editorial choices we make have no hidden agenda and are not attached to any particular ideology or political organization. We also believe there is no substitute for real, progressive action as all of us continue what has already become a perilous journey into the interior of 21st Century. We are grateful for the many wonderful organizations and coalitions active in the Peace Movement today and wish to do all we can to support their efforts and to promote unity, harmony and collective power among them. We readily confess our own set of presuppositions: Our world view is one of peace, democracy, environmental responsibility and compassion for ourselves and our fellow human beings. We identify "Corporate Global Empire" as our common foe and the enemy of the people. We believe that all current, viable political parties in the U.S. are in service to the empire and do not represent the people. We are not to be identified as "Democrats", "Republicans", "Capitalists", "Communists" or "Socialists", "Progressives" or with any ideology that can be reduced to a religion, organization or any other "ism". We offer no such target for attack by the enemies of the truth. We welcome original writing from our readers, as well as news and article submissions. We also invite you to offer critique of our work. Your suggestions are essential to our growth and improving our service."
