  • Norway 1814 – 1994 – 2014: Sovereignty and Democracy

    By Heming Olaussen

    2014 is a year of political jubilees. 200 years ago Norway got her Constitution (Grunnloven), which is celebrated every year on May 17 in every place in the country with children’s processions and speeches. And on November 28, it is also 20 years since the last No of the Norwegian people to EU membership. Where is the connection between these two great events in Norway’s political history – and why is No to the EU calling this a ”double jubilee” and making a campaign on it? In 1814 Norway was subjected to Denmark, formally in a ”union”, but really governed as a colony. After the Napoleonic wars Denmark was left as one of the losers, and through the Treaty of Kiel in January 1814 it was decided that Norway should be surrendered to Sweden as war booty. This led to an insurrection in Norway, and the elites (the nobles, the big farmers and others) met and decided to reject the Treaty of Kiel and set up a Norwegian Constitution and call a constituent assembly named Stortinget. And this came to be the result after people all over the country had gathered at church assemblies and elected their representatives. Strongly inspired by the French revolution and the American constitution one of the most radical constitutions in Europe was adopted and signed on May 17, 1814. Even though Norway was in the Autumn of 1814 forced to accept the Swedish king and a personal union with Sweden after an invasion of superior Swedish troops the Storting stuck to the Constitution as the legal framework of the Norwegian democracy during the union with Sweden. In actual fact Norway had self government except for foreign policy.

    Norway’s upholding of the principle of the Sovereignty of the People was a unique phenomenon in Europe. When the democratic wave of the French revolution had passed almost all the royal houses had their revenge, and most constitutions were annulled or set aside. The Norwegian constitution survived. And moreover – it was on the foundation of this constitution that Norway’s democracy was continually expended until 1913 (votes for women) and 1919 (full voting rights, even to people on poor relief).

    ”Norway is a free, independent, inalienable and indivisible realm,” according to the first article of the constitution.

    And this was just what the campaign in 1994 (as well as in 1972) was about: Should Norway continue as a free and independent realm, or should Norway be subjected to remote government from Brussels? In both referenda the people said clearly that”we want to govern ourselves, we will not be governed by others”. And when No to the EU now celebrates as well the 200 year jubilee of the Constitution as the 20 year jubilee of the No victory in 1994 it is on the foundation of these quite fundamental principles:

    Norway should be governed by the Norwegian people

    Norway should be an independent and sovereign country.

    And this is where the struggle is still going on in 2014. Not so much about EU membership. As many as 70 per cent of the people are now saying No to the EU. But through the EEA agreement we are nevertheless a member of the EU Single Market and have to accept a number of laws and directives which, according to many, ought never to be accepted as we are just not a member of the EU.

    So the struggle continues – for Norway’s freedom, democracy and independence. In 2014 as in 1994 and in 1814.

  • Against the austerity alliance between the European Peoples Party (EPP) and big business

    The Peoples Movement is organising two protests at the Convention Centre – leaving from the Custom House - one from 9 - 10am on Friday morning 7th March and the second from 1 -2 p.m. on Friday afternoon. The themes will be; ‘We don’t want EU military expansion’ and ‘NO! to EU – imposed austerity’.

    The EPP and its constituent parties in EU member states have been to the forefront in formulating and implementing austerity measures, especially in peripheral countries such as Ireland. This zeal for austerity has not prevented them from benefiting from a grant of some €9.5 million from the European Parliament budget; in effect Irish taxpayers are helping to pay for the EPP political jamboree in Dublin‘s Convention Centre.

    Since the outbreak of the crisis, EPP parties have championed major reforms of the EU’s economic governance. These reforms are designed to lock in fiscal policy at a national level and enforce austerity at the European level. The European Parliament itself as the EU’s only elected body has been sidelined from much of a process that has included putting in place a whole set of additional rules and institutions whose primary purpose is to further transform Europe in the image of organisations such as BusinessEurope, Europe’s largest business association, whose policy is to lock in fiscal policy at a national level and enforce austerity at the European level. IBEC is the Irish voice of this grouping.

    Despite high octane rhetoric about ‘democracy’ EPP parties see no danger in a situation where fiscal policy is less and less determined by political bargaining between elected governments, political parties, and social interests and more and more is the outcome of inflexible and immutable rules.

    The most visible manifestation of the alliance of the EPP and big business is so-called ‘Six Pack‘, which delivers the binding fiscal rules BusinessEurope demanded. The measures favour neo-liberal structural reforms and prohibit investment in social progress if there is no visible economic value. Resultant measures include privatisation of health care or abolition of labour protection.

    The European Commission, where the EPP is strongly represented, provides the perfect framework to lock in national economic and budgetary policies, because it is neither transparent, nor accountable to the public. Political power is being transferred to the un-elected EU institutions in Brussels. The result is that the European Union is becoming more authoritarian at a frightening speed.

    Our protests are against this alliance between the EPP and big business to the detriment of ordinary citizens and against the rapidly evolving militarisation of the EU.

  • Statement on Latvia Joining the euro zone from Normunds Grostins, Latvian board member of TEAM.

    To join Eurozone, Latvia had to go through dramatic austerity policy. It has catastrophic effects. For example, Buildings Control State Inspection was abolished to save some money. As result, in December supermarket building collapsed in Riga, killing 54 people.

    Now Latvia has minimal state pension 70 euro per month, and average monthly income well under 500 euro. But Latvia with its 2 million population is going to pay hundreds of millions euro and guarantee almost 3 billion euro for Euro Stability Mechanism.

    Introduction of euro in Latvia at all stages was done without referendum and against will of people. All independent polls clearly show that majority of Latvia’s population doesn’t want abolish national currency in favor of euro. Issue of leaving Eurozone will be on Latvia’s political agenda during European and national elections at 2014.



  • THE ATHENS MEETING COMMON PRESS RELEASE

    Athens, the cradle of democracy, 01 of December 2013

    During the weekend of 30 November and 1st December 2013, people’s movements and economists from all over Europe and other countries, held a successful meeting. The meeting was realized on the initiative of EPAM the topics being: the debt, the national currency and democracy. From the first day of the conference, it was clear that all participants held common views and built a close cooperation towards the following:

    1. The debt has been imposed by banks through the euro, imprisons nations and enslaves peoples.

    2. The need to leave the euro and to reestablish a national currency as a basic condition to regain independence and pursue full employment policies.

    3. The need to leave the EU according to Article No 50 of the Treaty of the European Union.

    4. Democracy emerges as a critical issue, in a European political environment where the eurozone governments – and those countries’ elites first and foremost – impose policies leading Europe to the new feudal system run by the markets against peoples’ interests.

    The euro, like any other monetary union, will sooner or later collapse. The sooner each country leaves the euro, the better.

    The dilemma the peoples of Europe face is: either the dictatorship of the markets or democracy and an economy based on the needs of the peoples.

    The meeting closed its works with important conclusions and the promise that:

    a) The participants although they are democratic movements against any form of extremism suffer from being banned from all mainstream media. However they observe that in every country the same mainstream media grant an extended coverage to far right parties, confusing as a matter of fact the citizens by associating the need to leave the euro and the EU with the far- right ideology.

    b) The important two-day Athens Meeting is the start of a steady and active cooperation between the movements that took part , in the frame of mutual respect to the national identity of each one.

    c) The meeting will be the beginning of the liberation of peoples of Europe, who deserve to build their own democracy and their own economy.

    d) All participants in this international meeting committed themselves to intensify their efforts and become active in increasing the number of movements – all over Europe as well as worldwide – in the steps outlined by the Meeting of Athens.
