(AP) — The stillness that enveloped Chaco Canyon was almost deafening, broken only by the sound of a raven's wings batting the air while it circled overhead. Then a chorus of leaders from several Native American tribes began to speak, their voices echoing off the nearby sandstone cliffs. They spoke of a deep connection to the canyon — the heart of Chaco Culture National Historic Park — and the importance of ensuring that oil and gas development beyond the park's boundaries does not sever that tie for future generations. © Provided by Associated Press U.S.

Camped in Calais, migrants renew resolve to try for England

  Camped in Calais, migrants renew resolve to try for England CALAIS, France (AP) — At the makeshift camps in France near Calais and Dunkirk, migrants are digging in, waiting for their chance to make a dash across the English Channel despite the deaths of at least 27 people this week when their boat sank a few miles (kilometers) from the French coast. Police have stepped up patrols in recent days and the weather has worsened, making this a bad time to attempt a crossing. But most migrants say the tragedy won’t prevent them from climbing into a flimsy inflatable boat packed with up to 50 people in hopes of reaching Britain.

"One of the elements of the new Coalition Agreement in Germany refers to the EU federalization", opposite the wishes of slopeting leaders, recalls Ewa Marciniak.

Friday, Polish Prime Minister Mesteusz Morawiecki considered that this is a "turning point in the history of Europe, the European Union, the EU's sovereign Member States".

"Let (...) be together we will put a barrage to the usurpation that concentrates the power in the hands of the European elites (...), or we will face the extension of the skills (of the European institutions, NDLR) And to the contraction of what is one of the best inventions of humanity, that is, sovereign states, "he said at a meeting of experts.

for its part, Katalin Novak, Hungarian Minister of the Family, assured that "the goal of Fidesz is to ensure that nationalist persons, pro-freedom, anti-immigration and respectful of traditional family values ​​are also represented strongly as possible in the European decision-making process ".

In October, Ms. Le Pen has already met MM. Morawiecki and Orban, to denounce "enslavement" of the EU and the "migratory submersion".

Poland and Hungary are threatened by an EU mechanism to suspend the payment of European funds in the event of a violation of the principles of the rule of law, because of their recurring unravels with Brussels on the respect of the values ​​judged fundamental within the European Union.
