Today, my friends, is an important day for Europe, for the world! Today we might see democracy fall but luckly it seems democracy will do it's job and will stand victorious!
The lisbon treaty just might be rejected today and this is not just any treaty. It's a treaty supporting the making of European political elites, aristocracy if you will. this day, the friday of 13th (oh how ironic) june 2008 will not be forgoten! it is just as important as if you put together all European countries days of independences or similar!

"Ireland was the only country to hold a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty."

I looked it up and see that in Slovenia the Nat'l Assembly passed it 74 to 6.

yeah, of course it did, and i can tell you how many of those 82 MPs read it. not a single one, yep, that many!

Our association tried to start a civil iniciative referendum, we gathered 2700 of 2500 needed signatures, but, the president of the parliament simply rejected it, they said, because some of the personal data statedn on the signature register didn't match the one on their ID cards, which is not valid excuse. so...an appeal has been made to the constitutional court.

thank god Irish folks weren't blinded so we still might have a chance to be free!

from patriotic association Hervardi (Slovenia):


The result of the Irish referendum on the Lisbon Treaty is a triumph for democracy. The Irish voters have rejected a treaty that is undemocratic and militaristic. They have thereby rendered all Europeans an enormous service, opening new possibilities for a cooperation among the European peoples that is democratic, equal and peaceful and respects the sovereignty of each member state.

TEAM, The European Alliance of EU-critical Movements, a cross-political network of more than 50 organisations from over 20 countries, notes that the Lisbon Treaty has fallen and that the ratification process in other EU-member states should be called off immediately.

The German chancellor and the French president claim in their first reaction to the result of the Irish referendum that the Lisbon Treaty is necessary “in order to make the European Union more democratic and efficient”. In other words: in order to make the EU more democratic it is necessary to ignore the result of a truly democratic referendum. This statement reveals the degree of hypocrisy in the EU-elite!

The EU-constitutional project has thrice failed to pass its democratic test: in France and The Netherlands in 2005 and, in a slightly made-up version, in Ireland in 2008. The EU-elite should realize by now that the peoples of Europe want a different form of community, based on other values. Its unwillingness to do so, however, makes it the more important that all committed citizens and organisations initiate discussions, create visions and forward-looking proposals pointing out the many possibilities for a truly democratic and peaceful European cooperation.

TEAM shall gladly contribute to this process, and expresses its warmest gratitude to the Irish people for giving all Europeans the possibility of doing so.

Thank you Ireland! Congratulations Europe!
