European Action
against ESM

Initiated by Rudo de Ruijter, independent researcher, Olivier van Noortstraat 13, 6991 BG Rheden, Netherlands
The original starting pages for this action are located at www.courtfool.info
To contact me, please see per item here below.

The content of this page is updated continuously. Press F5 for the latest version!

The Treaty establishing the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) has been signed 2 February 2012 and Brussels wants it to be in force 1 July 2012. However, before that, the Parliaments and Senats of the 17 euro-countries still have to vote  wether they accept this dangerous treaty or not. These procedures for the ratification have already started! We have to act very urgently and efficiently!

Short video 3'51''  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxMOW94V6xQ

English text of the treaty: http://www.european-council.europa.eu/media/582311/05-tesm2.en12.pdf
(If unavailable, here a copy )

The ESM in very short

The ESM has the appearance of an emergency fund. It is a permanent fund, replacing the EFSF and EFSM established in 2010. With a starting capital of 700 billion euros, it can decide itself to increase this capital indefinitely and claim the payments by the national Treasuries whenever it wants. To give you an idea what 700 billion represents, that is for each country a contribution that comes close to the amount of the income taxes for one year. Long live the budget cuts! Long live austerity! The ESM disposes of this money as it likes, without the least democratic influence, without any control, without having to account to anyone. A real dictatorship!

Its official purpose is to help countries with financial difficulties. In fact, it loads ever more debts on indebted countries. Its loans come with conditions that put the countries under guardianship, replacing democratically chosen leaders by bankers. With imposed budget cuts, the ESM acts as a demolisher, that deliberately causes severe economic crises and massive unemployment. That goes for the countries that contribute financially, as well as the countries that accept to borrow from the ESM. It is the Choc Doctrine as described by Naomi Klein.

Politicians, like the Dutch Rutte and de Jager, like to make believe that it’s the countries own fault if they are indebted. They would employ too many officials, they would have taken bad decisions, they would be lazy-bones or they would have lied about the debts they had. Note that none of these countries had major problems when they entered the eurozone. He would not have been accepted. In fact, the cause of their indebtment is the euro! Read the explanation in the letter here below.

To stop the ESM, all Europeans have an interest that this treaty gets the least possible ratifications.

A collective letter has been sent to the parliamentarians and senators who vote about its ratification.

Dear Deputy / Dear Senator,

Essential information has remained hidden in the large pile of documents about the ESM.

The euro has one unsolvable issue!  You do not have to be an expert to see this.  Within one minute you will understand. Here is the explanation:

With open borders and shared currency, nothing prevents consumers in countries with lower productivity from preferring cheaper and better products from countries with higher productivity. This causes a constant flow of euros from weaker countries to stronger countries.  Consequently these weaker countries are permanently short of euros and are obliged to borrow more  all the time, simply to dispose of euros.

(Before the introduction of the euro, these countries could devaluate their currency. This way imported products became more expensive for their own population and exported products became cheaper for foreign purchasers. This way, domestic productivity increased again and foreign debt decreased.)

Within the euro-zone, there are big differences in productivity, caused by differences in climate, fertility of soils, availability of fresh water, distances to be covered, natural barriers in transportation, availability of energy sources etc. These conditions largely determine success or failure of economic activities. Greece, Italy Spain and Portugal will never resemble Germany.

Moreover, the European Central Bank only disposes of one interest rate for 17 different economies. A change of this rate - which has always been mentioned as  an important tool  to influence the economy -  can only be profitable for a few countries, while the others suffer from the consequences. Monetarily this zone is ungovernable.

The ESM and the associated treaties just treat the symptoms of the imbalances within the euro zone.  No measure can eliminate the differences. Ever since 1970, leading economists have been warning us about this problem. (See attached references.) Although politicians may have beem well-intentioned, introducing a common currency in such a heterogeneous area was a big mistake.

The crisis of 1930 was also caused by politicians who ignored the elementary workings of the economy,  or did not want to see them because they did not fit in their ideas. Clearly, anyone who critically assesses these issues understands that with the giant financial contributions to the ESM and the imposed austerity rules, we run straight into another large-scale crisis.

Because there has been no referendum about the transfer of competences to Brussels, and because no major public debates on this issue have taken place, your personal responsibility in the decision about the ESM is enormous. We are aware of the pressure exerted on you from all sides.

We intend to publish the vote of each Parliamentarian and we will bring it to the attention of the widest possible public, so voters can take this into account at the next election.

Yours sincerely,


 

Repartition of shares

The euro-countries contribute relatively to the number of their shares in the total capital.

It means, for instance, that for the start of 700 billion euros, the Dutch will have to pay 40 billions. Compare that to the amount of Dutch income taxes of 2011: 45 billion euros. And the ESM can increase the amount indefinitely!!!

The Board of Governors of the ESM is composed of Governors, who are the Ministers of Finance of each country. Their voting rights are relative to the number of shares of their country.

It would be an error to think, that this gives some relative power to each country. When the Minister of Finance acts as Governor of the ESM, he cannot be called to account by the national Parliament nor by anyone else. As Governor he acts under an international treaty, which has always priority over national laws. The only thing the national parliament can do is send him home. Would he mind? I am sure the following day he can earn three times as much in one of the companies that benefited from the billions of the ESM.

Secrets behind world events...


Wake up citizens?


If you just sign here, I will give you a balance of $ 1,000 and you will owe me $ 1,000 plus interest.


With just a tiny little bit of money bankers can pay each other millions...


Politicians give billions away to private bankers...


Private banks must grow infinitely in order not to fail. That is why we have inflation and live according to the dogna of eternal economical growth.

Restrictions to grow beyond the country's borders would endanger the banks. This was well understood by Pierre Werner, banker and prime minister of Luxembourg, who presented the first blue print for the common currency in 1970.

At that time, prominent economists already warned that because of the big economic differences this would lead to severe indebtment of the weaker countries. These problems were easy to predict. But debts mean extra income for the bankers. So the euro came and with it the problems.


Fortunately, we still have the euro...


Many euro-countries have severe financial problems by now. Many people still don't understand that the euro is not the solution, but the cause.

When consumers prefer products from other euro-countries, their local economy gets out of business. At the same time, the euros leave the country as payment for the import-products. People, enterprises and governments must borrow more and more from the banks to continue to dispose of euros. The country gets trapped in growing debts...


Consecutively the banks raise the interest for the local government in such a way, it can only obtain further loans from the Troika (International Monetary Funds, European Central Bank, European Commission.)


To supply these loans, the Troika demands Draconic budget cuts. Public officers are fired, services come to a standstill, social achievements are broken down. The people are taught they would be still worse off without the euro. Also, all lucrative possessions of the country must be sold to foreign parties to lower the debt. A man of Goldman Sachs is appointed as governor.

Financiers earn billions of interest with these mountains of debt. To prevent that they risk losses because of impayments, the European Stability Mechanisme (ESM) has been set up. The ESM may grab tax money from the treasury of the eurocountries, freely, illimitly and without control nor justification.

YouTube: The dictatorship of the ESM robs the Treasuries in 3'51''


The ministers of finance appoint themselves (illegally) as governors of the ESM. (Signature of the first version of the ESM-treaty, 11 July 2011.)

Apparently because the US was not satisfied with this first version, it disappeared in the trash bin a few days later. A second version came on 2 February 2012, this time it was signed by ambassadors.

Unbelievable but true, the treaty has been ratified by the parliaments and senats of the 17 euro-countries.

They voted for the bankers, not for the people.


ESM, the new European dictator!


Keep quiet! We build Europe!"


It is the European Commission that according to its President Barroso should be the economic government of the Union, which defines the actions that national governments must carry out. (28.09.11)
