UPDATE:

10.3.2001 Official Journal of the European Communities C 80/67

C. PROTOCOLS ANNEXED TO THE TREATY ESTABLISHING THE EUROPEAN

COMMUNITY

Protocol on the financial consequences of the expiry of the ECSC Treaty and

on the research fund for coal and steel

THE HIGH CONTRACTING PARTIES,

DESIRING to settle certain questions relating to the expiry of the Treaty establishing the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC);

TAKING ACCOUNT of the desire to use these funds for research in sectors related to the coal and steel industry and therefore the necessity to provide for certain special rules in this regard;

HAVE AGREED UPON the following provisions, which shall be annexed to the Treaty establishing the European Community:

Article 1

  1. All assets and liabilities of the ECSC, as they exist on 23 July 2002, shall be transferred to the European Community on 24 July 2002.

  • The net worth of these assets and liabilities, as they appear in the balance sheet of the ECSC of 23 July 2002, subject to any increase or decrease which may occur as a result of the liquidation operations, shall be considered as assets intended for research in the sectors related to the coal and steel industry, referred to as the “ECSC in liquidation’.

  • On completion of the liquidation they shall be referred to as the “Assets of the Research Fund for Coal and Steel’.

UPDATE: any BREXIT doubts? ,

  1. Google this Question———- Are there any European laws that protect its citizens. Or name 10 laws or directives that protect its citizens.

  2. Try whatever combination of search words for any law that directly protects its citizens from illegal action by Companies or any huge corporation.

  3. Everything read so far: has the words, (MAY) or (Could). None of the laws say (YOU) (ARE)   protected by the Law —————————–.

  4. Possibly maybe or sometimes you could be, BUT ARE YOU ?

Old guys like me have seen it all before, check out the true facts yourself.

This government is waging a war of fear. It is Brain washing and treating the *voting public as idiots who can be indoctrinated by television news.*

The shocking level of wealthy individuals corporations, celebrities, banks, financial institutions like the, IMF, UN, ECB, BOE, promoting the remain in EU camp is nothing better than just untruths. All of the above are just looking after themselves at our expence.

All governments are run by liars and nothing they say should ever be believed.

(If we don’t know what the EU really does, then why should we trust them.)

We don’t really know what powers the EU has over us, or are claiming for themselves.

Why! because its all done in secret.

And you, fellow citizen never get to vote full stop.

Now is your only chance to stop the mass immigration and the destruction of Britain.

WHO  (world health organization ) said hundreds of thousands of patients have multi drug resistant tuberculosis. It is a huge killer claiming over 1 million 500 thousand lives in 2014 alone.

The EU is allowing millions of Muslim migrants into the EU without any health checks.

We are justified in complaining, that we cannot take these people in. We have no room for them and our schools, hospitals and services are being overwhelmed and destroyed.

British citizens have tolerated enough.

Now we will have a say.
