Comment: The ‘Brussels EU’ is a dictatorial structure serving global corporate interests that are – once again – threatening the lives of hundreds of millions of people across Europe. Moreover, unless European citizens act now, this structure will remain in place for generations to come and will subjugate the entire world under its control. Due to its fundamentally undemocratic structure – with the EU Commission holding all executive power and the EU Parliament serving merely as a fig leaf – the construct of the ‘Brussels EU’ is not reformable. It therefore needs to be publicly rejected by the people, dismantled and eventually replaced by a truly democratic system of representation: a Europe of the people, by the people and for the people.
