WELCOME TO THE CNI WEBPAGE
CAMPAIGN FOR NATIONAL INDEPENDENCE
Was, is and shall remain in favour of Maltese workers
and against Malta's membership of the European Union
Many criticize the European Union.
Some think that they can better it from inside.
Others insist that the Union is going from bad to worse and it cannot reform itself.
For the latter, the Union does not need to be changed, but be changed with another new organization of the European countries.
CNI agrees that the European countries deserve to be in another organization.
CNI insists that it will be better for the Maltese people for our country to leave the European Union.
If we do so, we win much and lose nothing.
Because it is not true that it is better for Malta to be a member in the EU.
Our economy is suffering from our membership in the Union.
Proof of this is the reduction in exports since we have become members in the Union.
Another proof is the vast increase in expenses and in prices that have increased the cost of living more than the wages and salaries have increased.
Another proof is the closure of many factories and the loss of thousands of jobs.
Another proof is the increase in national debt that is nearly €4 billion.
The European Union servants frequently brag with the millions that the Union promised to give to Malta.
They never mention how much our country is paying the Union every year.
According to the Government estimates for this year only we are going to pay around €56 million.
They never say how much we are spending and incurring expenses to keep up with what the Union wants from us.
There is no doubt membership in the Union costs us more than the Union gives us every year.
That is why the Government has never accepted he demand that the CNI has made many times to it to make a cost-benefit analysis on Malta’s membership in the Union so that the people would know how they are getting a bad deal with membership.
It is true that with the European Union among us a few are faring very well because they are getting a lot.
But the vast majority of the families are getting a raw deal and their standard of living has been lowered, not bettered.
They are suffering to keep up with the cost of living.
Unfortunately the few who are getting a good deal have the strength and the means to make the people believe the fib that without the Union we will be worse than we are.
They also have the capability of making our youth dizzy with the illusion of the advantages of Europe
* without allowing them to realize what they are losing
* with the work that is being given to foreigners in our country
* instead of being taken by them,
* and how they went backwards by,
* while our parents could build or but their home,
* they cannot bear the burden to take this measure so necessary for them.
Not only economically,
* but also politically
* our country went backwards with EU membership.
It is a national humiliation
* that the Maltese Prime Minister
* and Ministers
* are continuously going back and forth to Brussels
* to take orders
* from the Union
* how to govern our country.
It is a national shame that our country is constantly threatened that it shall have to pay huge penalties if we do not do what the Union orders.
Our people suffered a great loss when foreigners are again managing the most important things in our country.
In foreigners hands is the management of
* Grand Harbour,
* the Freeport,
* the Airport,
* the telephone services,
* sea transport of merchandise,
* the towing services,
* of the biggest bank,
* the Shipyard,
* the Post,
* the Lotto,
* and now even the Public Transport
* is going to be in foreign hands.
We have again become a foreigners' colony.
The European Union dictates to our fishermen how much fish they can catch and forces them to measure the fish.
It orders our herdsmen what size shall be the chicken cages and how many sheep and goats they can keep.
It wants water to be sold in plastic and not glass bottles, and that bags have to be made of paper not plastic.
It issues regulations all the time on everything and the Maltese Parliament cannot keep up with the quantity to make them into laws for the country.
If this does not occur, measures are taken against us by the European Commission and the Union Court.
Because of the Union, we have become inundated with thousands of illegal immigrants.
The Union wants us to keep them here against the will of our people.
That is why we are no longer governing ourselves, but are being governed.
We have lost the sovereignty and independence that we had.
European Union membership wrongly affected morally our people.
We have again become mentally servile to foreigners.
Our moral backbone has been weakened.
We have become sick with all the bad customs of Europe.
It could not go amiss that corruption increased when the Union is filled with corruption leprosy.
The people have become more indifferent for what is happening.
Our youth have lost their eagerness to work for the country and their neighbours.
They have put aside the ideals that carried our fathers to build a social state and acquire independence and freedom.
We have lost a lot in the five years that we have been members in the European Union, and contrary to what is said in the investment adverts, we say that the past is the guarantee for the future.
* CNI has not lost its strong will
* to strive so that the majority of the people
* decide to redeem ourselves from the new foreign yoke
* by getting out of the Union
* and we make a new agreement with it
* that will be for the benefit the Maltese people
* and the Mediterranean region.
Thus the Maltese people will get back their honour.
The financial crisis and the economic crisis that have occurred in many countries including European Union members have a lot of lessons to teach us.
The first lesson is that the rules on the Government expenditure that the Union imposes on its members were useless to prevent the country from falling into a financial crisis or in an economic crisis or in both.
The biggest countries in the union, such as Germany and France suffered crisis notwithstanding that they are the most financially and economically advanced.
Other Union countries, Ireland and Spain, who used to be given as examples of how the Union policy advances the countries, are passing through more profound crisis, and are having enormous deficits in their budgets and huge unemployment.
Unemployment in the Union increased to around 21 million and in some member countries, among them Italy, is continuing to increase.
Therefore it can be said that Union financial and economic policies and regulations have failed.
The second lesson from this crisis is that it is not true that the private sector, if allowed to be free from interference by the State to regulate itself, ensures that the commercial enterprises and financial services will be managed efficiently and without making losses.
Indeed, it has been found that man of them are managed very badly and in an abusive manner, and the lack of control by the State made it possible for them to come to the point of collapse.
The third lesson is that it is very dangerous to leave pensions in commercial pensions companies, because many of them are only able to be saved from bankruptcy in the state intervenes.
In the State does not involve itself to help the companies thousands of pensioners would end up losing their pension.
The same danger is found in the banks.
In the crisis that many banks are passing through, we have seen that depositors would have lost their savings if the governments of the countries did not involve themselves to advance huge sums to the banks that were approaching bankruptcy.
In fact, many had already gone bankrupt.
It is enough to say that in the United States of America, in 2008 around 100 banks went bankrupt.
That is why the dogma of faith about the sanctity of privatization that the EU imposes on the member countries has been proved to be false, and the private sector cannot remain sustainable in the long run if it is separated from State funds.
In other words, the private sector does not give the guarantee that the public sector gives, that the citizens’ savings and pensions will not be lost.
This is the contrary of what the EU preaches.
Although in the European Union treaties
* it is said that the unions have the right to call industrial actions
* to protect the interests of the workers who are their members,
* in the judgment the Court of Justice of the EU has given
* in the Vaxholm,
* and Laval cases,
* the Court decided that the Unions did not have the right
* to call foreign workers on works contracts in other EU countries,
* and pay the foreign workers lower wages,
* or much lower wages than the workers
* of the country where the works are executed,
* unless the wages are not less than the minimum wage.
In the United Kingdom the vast majority of workers who work in the biggest oil refineries and power stations voted in favour to take industrial action because of the fact that these companies are employing foreign workers with low wages.
Naturally, the owners are saying that according to EU law (and when the EU Court gives a judgment it will have the force of law), they have a right to employ foreign workers with lower wages than those that union members’ workers have.
It appears that according to the English newspaper The Guardian, these companies can try to overthrow the workers vote for industrial action by taking their case to Court, and the Court in the United Kingdom shall have to follow the EU Court decision.
If this happens and the Court decides in favour of the owners’ plea, serious industrial trouble can arise in the United Kingdom.
I say that serious industrial trouble shall arise in all those EU countries where the unions are strong, such as in France, Italy and the Scandinavian countries. I don’t know what the workers shall do in Malta when such cases arise, because Maltese workers appear to have retreated into their shell.
While the politicians do not mention anything on this great threat that is coming from the judgment that the European Union Court of Justice has given!
