Coming up this week on Global 3000 - the magazine on worldwide development and environment from the heart of Europe ---
France/Turkey: The Dispute Over Genocide
A new law in France makes genocide denial a criminal offence. The legislation, which categorizes the mass killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks during World War One as genocide, has enraged the Turkish government. For the Armenians, the law is gratifying, but Turkey regards it as a provocation.
Italy - Protest Waves
Large numbers of taxi and truck drivers are protesting at planned government reforms.
Hungary - Tough Reforms
The European Union is stepping up pressure on Hungary. Brussels has launched infringement proceedings against the member nation. Prime Minister Viktor Orban has shown readiness for compromise but the government leader continues to rule with a hard hand.
Switzerland: Close Links to German Neo-Nazis
The far right terrorist group in Zwickau, Germany, was apparently internationally networked. There's an especially strong connection to Switzerland, where German neo-Nazis like to practice on shooting ranges.
Romania: No more bringing home the bacon
In the village of Gârbova in the Transylvania region of Romania, the old customs of the local ethnic Germans, the "Transylvanian Saxons," guarantee harmony in the community. But now there is trouble with the European Union.
