How about writing to your Euro MP to begin with?

In the same line of thought:

Any citizen of the European Union, or resident in a Member State, may, individually or in association with others, submit a petition to the European Parliament on a subject which comes within the European Union's fields of activity and which affects them directly.

Petitions - One of the fundamental rights of European citizens

Who will choose the President under the proposed treaty? I would presume the Council chooses, but I don't know.

It's the President of the Council, elected by its members under the qualified majority procedure.
Same thing for the "Foreign Minister", although he will also be part of the Commission.

Would we be interested in raising some noise about it?

What could get such a movement started ?

We must think about it. I will write a diary.
