Maurizio Baiata has written an article on the Open Minds.tv website entitled "European Union Parliamentarian calls for an end to UFO secrecy".

The article by Maurizio Baiata relates to a proposed declaration by European Parliamentarian Mario Borghezio (the leader of the Italian Northern League party), referred to by Maurizio Baiata as "a controversial politician due to his extreme right-wing positions'.

www....(nolink)/european-union-ufo-secrecy/



An Italian Member of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, has submitted a request to the highest legislative body within the European Union for full disclosure of classified UFO documents by the 27 nation governments that belong to the EU. The written declaration presented on June 14th was sponsored by Mario Borghezio, leader of the Italian Northern League party, a controversial politician due to his extreme right-wing positions. From a political standpoint, the core of the declaration (code # 0057/2010) is to create a “European commission on UFOs,†but actually the basis of the request is that the 27 governments who are members of the EU (UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, etc.) have to open their classified archives and release all documents relating to UFOs.


The text of the relevant proposed declaration can be downloaded from the website of the European Parliament as either a PDF document or a Word document.

www.europarl.europa.eu...

It includes the following:


WRITTEN DECLARATION
pursuant to Rule 123 of the Rules of Procedure
on the declassification of documentation on UFOs
Mario Borghezio
Lapse date: 14.10.2010


0057/2010
Written declaration on the declassification of documentation on UFOs
The European Parliament,

– having regard to Articles 4, 179, 180 and 189 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

– having regard to Rule 123 of its Rules of Procedure,

A. whereas in 1978 the 33rd General Assembly of the United Nations formally recognised UFOs as a valid issue,

B. whereas in 1993 a resolution drafted by the Italian physicist Tullio Regge and seeking to extend to European level the investigative remit of what was then the only government body looking into UFOs (the SEPRA, which has now become the GEIPAN) was tabled in Parliament,

C. whereas many members of the scientific community have been looking into the issue of UFOs and have denounced the systematic covering-up of information on the subject,

D. whereas a study of the material collected by the governments of all the Member States would have major scientific and technological spinoffs,

1. Considers it essential to set up a scientific centre for the analysis and dissemination of the scientific data gathered to date by various European bodies and governments;

2. Calls for public archives on UFOs to be opened up and for records to be declassified by the Member States, thus providing the public and the mass media with access to the full range of documentation on the subject;

3. Instructs its President to forward this declaration, together with the names of the signatories, to the Council, the Commission and the governments of the Member States.



Wikipedia has more on some of the controversy surrounding Mario Borghezio:
en.wikipedia.org...



In 1993 he was sentenced to pay a fine of 750,000 lire for private violence on a child in relation to an incident dating back to 1991. He detained by the arm and brought to the police a 12 years old Moroccan vendor, who was living in Italy without proper VISA.

In July 2005, Borghezio was found guilty of arson, for having set fire to the pallets of some immigrants while they were sleeping under a bridge in Turin during a vigilante raid. For this he was sentenced to two months and twenty days, which converted into a fine of €3,040.


This is far from the first time that someone with strong right-wing views has been associated with ufology and (probably even more often) other conspiracy theories.

If anyone has come across interesting sources which have already discussed in any detail the involvement of those with strong right-wing views in ufology or other conspiracy theories, I'd be grateful if they could mention them.

All the best,

Isaac

Create an European commission on UFOs , put him ( Baiata) in charge or just a member and there he goes , he's got another 5000 or 10.000E per month , money from european citizens that are making huge sacrifices at the moment

When one from any parliament in the world runs out of solutions of making
money he proposes the birth of a commision...one of the oldest tricks

I am all for disclosure
but I don't think I need a
commission to tell me how
or what to think about it.
Let me make up my own
dayim mind

I doubt that any members of European Parliament have access to classified UFO documents, or that they have enough political sway to demand anything from those that do have access.

This is a need-to-know basis sort of thing. To get any answers, you need to go straight to the military - they operate above and beyond the reach of any government.

Yes, yet more crap from fat cats trying to get fatter.

UFO's need no disclosure or permission - they will either:

1. Arrive when they feel like it.

2. Never arrive.

3. Or they don't exist.

Please stop yet another politician making money in any way to do with UFOs.

In relation to Mario Borghezio, I note the following source:

liberalconspiracy.org...


The anti-fascist mag Searchlight also published this about Mario Borghezio:

Borghezio has excellent credentials for this kind of meeting. He began his political career as a member of the fascist group Ordine Nuovo led by Pino Rauti, who is still under investigation for terrorist activities. He later joined the Northern League, which has been at the forefront of the xenophobic trend since its inception in the 1980s.

Borghezio made his mark by setting fire to the tents of immigrants in Turin and later fought hard to convince people that immigrants were responsible for the spread of dangerous diseases such as TB.

Mario Borghezio???? Oh my God... I hope that if extraterrestrial beings exist, come here and take him to another galaxy....

Here in Italy, Mr Borghezio is (in)famous for some act against immigrates people.
For example, one time he try to clean every sit on a train that is used every day by african-italian worker....

And this is how is finish....



Thanks (of course) to Isaac Koi for the news...




Edit for some (as usual) spelling error.....

I cannot help but be fustrated by the subject of the article. Right wing politics is in my view a disease with few moraly acceptable cures, but regardless of this mans politics, I find his attitude toward disclosure acceptable. My only concern is that, along with many other subjects of interest to right wing politicians , the information this man wishes to collect would in his hands be twisted somehow to suit an agenda that this planet has had MORE than enough of over the course of human history.
IF such a wide reaching disclosure and declassification program comes to pass, it must be backed up with plenty of failsafes to ensure that moraly repugnant use of any information gained , is considered a capital crime, or a treason against all of humanity... it must carry a heavy weight of punishment.

I don't think that even Mario Borghezio would expect that he would be put in charge of "scientific centre" that is referred to in para 1 of the proposed declaration.

I think that this is more likely to a publicity stunt (or even true reflection of his beliefs) than an attempt by Mario Borghezio to get money from european citizens.

This is argumentum ad hominem. You are attacking the person and not the proposition.
