Un "mostro" giuridico italiano aleggia nell'UE
Scritto da Enrico Panero 6 Luglio 2009
Mentre la Svezia assumeva la presidenza di turno dell'UE, annunciando tra le sue priorità la definizione entro fine anno del nuovo programma quinquennale europeo in materia di Libertà, Sicurezza e Giustizia che prenderà appunto il nome di Programma di Stoccolma, uno degli Stati Membri Fondatori , l'Italia, il 2 luglio scorso ha adottato nuove norme contenute nel cosiddetto "pacchetto sicurezza", portando così alla politica comunitaria il suo contributo ... decisamente preoccupante.
Le reazioni ai contenuti del provvedimento approvato dal Senato italiano, espresse dalla maggior parte delle organizzazioni sociali, sindacali e religiose italiane, hanno mostrato un'insolita unanimità nel denunciare il regresso giuridico, democratico e sociale che comporteranno le nuove norme.

In Moscow, Russia, today US President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev committed to a year-end deal to slash nuclear stockpiles by about a third.
Both men renewed pledges to pull U.S.-Russian relations out of the dismal state into which they had descended during the eight years of the Bush administration. And to that end, they signed a series of agreements and joint statements designed to enliven and quicken contacts on a broad range of issues — including cooperation on Afghanistan, a key Obama foreign policy objective.
These are releases detailing the agreements
