Exclusive: Republican Paramilitary Active In Talasor
April 4394

On waste ground behind a disused smelting facility, the revolution is beginning. Here, in a community beyond youth groups and government outreach programmes, boys as young as fifteen participate in military style drills and target practice. All, they say, for one cause. Freedom.

Image

This is the Republican Volunteer Force in action, a paramilitary group said to be over 4000 members strong. An army of young men committed to the overthrow of the monarchy and for the defence of Mordusian culture. They say their activities are peaceful, that they are committed to supporting democratic reform. Their drills however, convey a different message.

The local unit leader, speaking under condition of anonymity, explained the group's activity.
Our country was stolen from us and we want it back. We don’t want some foreign King in Hutori or Luthori or anywhere telling us what to do. There’s no jobs, no nothing round here, and maybe that’s for a lot of reasons, but we always had our history, our flag and our country, then traitors sold us out. People are angry and they need to know that. We’re gonna take back what’s ours.

People from all walks of life have joined the group,
There are teachers, doctors, bus drivers, factory workers, security guards. We are everyone. And that should make the elite in Rechtenburg afraid.”


The Republican Volunteer Force has associated itself with the Alternative Future political movement.

Responding to our findings Alternative Future's Oliver Yorke said,

You have to understand the pain and anger out there in the country about what the political elite has done. Concertedly running down our country and then vassalising us to a foreign power. The flag isn’t a joke to Mordusians, it means something. As for this report, well, paramilitaries are perfectly legal and nobody has done anything wrong. A local official may have been slightly overzealous, that’s all. We are committed to peaceful democratic reform and will be fielding a full slate of candidates at the next election.

DUQUESNE MAKES APPEAL TO IMMIGRANT COMMUNITIES

Immigrant rights march in Port Alexander

Camille Duquesne has made an appeal to immigrant communities which voted overwhelmingly for the liberal Coalition for Change last election with pledges to make it easier for people to obtain citizenship and extending the right to vote to legal residents, regardless of citizenship.
“The Socialist Party is committed to standing up for immigrant communities” said Duquesne, the daughter of Aldurian immigrants herself, “we have a strong track record of protecting minority rights, from defending official bilingualism from attacks by the far-right to local socialist-run governments helping migrants obtain citizenship, we have a strong record on this matter”
The Young Socialists, the Socialist Party youth wing, released a statement praising “Camille's commitment to immigrant rights” but also added that “we, as socialists, need to tackle institutional racism in our justice system” and that “immigrant rights are human rights and we are glad that our mother party is coming around to our way of thinking”.
A new youth-led immigrant rights movement has arisen in Mordusia, after the controversial deportation of 1,786 illegal immigrants in Port Alexander, mostly from Saridan, Indrala, and Alduria.

Republican Volunteer Force Attack Stock Exchange
24th February 4396

A RVF bomb has blown a 10 foot hole in an exterior wall of the Rechtenburg Stock Exchange. Nobody was injured in the blast, although police say there would have been fatalities if they had not evacuated the area prior to the explosion.

Warning of the attack was given by operatives of the RVF in 6 separate phone calls from 8am on Monday morning. Officers evacuated the Stock Exchange and neighbouring buildings, as well as cordoning off streets in the surrounding area.

Chairman of the Stock Exchange Toby Wallace-Johnson said,

If the purpose of this callous act was to disrupt the financial sector, they have failed. Disruption to trading has been minimal.

Investigators say the bomb, containing 8lbs of high explosives, had been planted in the toilets adjacent to the main trading floor.

----------

RVF Claims Responsibility Citing Reprisal For Monarchist Attacks

The Republican Volunteer Force has claimed responsibility for the Stock Exchange bombing citing Monarchist attempts to proscribe Republican political organisations as justification.
Sources claim the telephoned warnings which occurred before hand prove that civilians were not targeted.

----------

Alternative Future Leader Slams “Heinous Act” And Urges Calm From Both Sides.

Oliver Yorke, Leader of Alternative Future, branded the attack a "heinous act which can have no justification, nor any place in a free society." He urged calm and restraint from both sides.

Image

What we must prevent now is an escalation of tensions. Monarchist attempts to use state apparatus to imprison and outlaw Republican organisations is wrong, and paramilitary violence
is wrong. We must come together as a community, as a society, to oppose these forms of aggression.

Prime Minister Speedy Cohen Makes Appeal to Canrillaise Voters in Talasor
-Alexander Phillips

Today marks the beginning of Speedy Cohen’s thank you tour across the Sammadora, Talasor and Sayoon. The first stop in his tour was Richtenberg, the capital city. The ruling coalition, which carried over 75% of the state of Talasor, is looking to replicate its success in the south in order to carry a majority going into the next election.

This is also the first time that he released the manifesto for the MCP:

1. We will increase funding for schools and raise academic standards to make our students more competitive with the rest of the world.

2. We will remove the ban on Religious clothing of all types, free expression should never be infringed upon.

3. We will create a series of alliances with other nations while withdrawing from treaties that undermine our national sovereignty.

4. We will remove the foreign king abroad, withdraw from the treaty of Rechtenburg and replace him with a Mordusian family who lives in the nation. We will no longer be a vassal.

5. Restore national dignity by banning prostitution, changing our national sport and animal and passing several socially conservative reforms.

6. Increase equality and the autonomy of the working class by increasing nationalizations and running them under democratic workers councils.

Speedy Cohen Rails Against Socialist Party Elitism in Port Alexander

Today we see the debasement of our politics, yet again, by the Socialist Party of Mordusia. They don’t care about the service worker, the teacher, or the dockworkers down here in Port Alexander. They are content to trample upon your religion and your rights as they slowly whittle away at both religion and the safety net.

Today, the Socialist Party showed that it doesn’t care about 40% of Mordusians, and 60% of the people of Sammadora, as they wished for their choice in party to “leave Mordusia soon.” Such disgusting behavior shows why my uncle fought them, and why I will continue to fight them until the bitter end!

Roy Cohen Jr, 7 Members of the Westwheel Family Arrested for Colluding To Undermine Aldurian Elections. Westwheel Bank Closed by Feds

Shock and horrors are the key words today for all members of the Metzist-Cohenist party as two of their leading and prominent members, Roy Cohen Jr and Alivia Westwheel, were taken away from their Port Alexander office in handcuffs.

The plans did not stop at getting foreign allies elected, either. Secret plans, uncovered by the police, reveal that the ideal of Cohenism was actually a plot by the Westwheels. The Cohenists were going to nationalize large chunks of the economy, where the Westwheels planned to purchase large sections of the denationalized industry.

What will happen to those who signed up under Speedy is yet to be seen, but the MCP is done.

Sol Solid Wins By Default? Speedy Cohen Arrested In Connection to MCP Scam

Sol Solid Wins Rips Leadership From the Hands of Cohen Loyalists, Restores the Hosian Civil Alliance
- Caleb Baker

It’s over. The scam came tumbling down and the Cohens, a family that has been prominent in Mordusian politics for over 100 years, have either fled the country or are locked away in Port Alexander prison. The MCP membership and future looks bleak and without real leadership. This appears to be the end of an era.

However, formerly independent MP and PM from the state of Talasor Sol Solid has other plans for the rotten aperture. Solid’s plan is to rebuild the Hosian Civil Alliance, just like he had when the HSU went into crisis.

“It’s about time that Solid put us back on the map,” a long-time Solid supporter says “we turned to the HCU, then later National Movement, becomes Solomon Solid will restore national dignity. I’m hoping that this time my voice will remain heard!

After winning the leadership election, essentially by default due to the prime minister going to prison, Solid has pledged to restore Hosian and Thallerist values to Mordusia.

Strike Breaks out at Rechtenburg Copper Mines

Today, all 2000 Copper miners in the state of Talasor have walked off of the job in protest to the anti-union measures proposed by the Hosian Civil Alliance. This bill, which proposes to remove working ours restrictions and take away collective bargaining rights, is likely going to pass through parliament in the coming months.

“The Hosian Civil Alliance has betrayed us,” Armin Kellogg, president of the HFTU-affiliated Mining Workers Federation said this morning, “We need to use our right to strike to stop this bill”

Many people fear that this is only the beginning as strikebreakers have been called in while mass demonstrations are taking place outside.

Professional Strikebreakers Deputized By Rechtenburg Sheriff

Following news that Metzist agitators were planning to cause chaos at the Copper strike, Samuel Jackson, the sheriff, decided to temporarily deputize private security that was protecting the mines. “They have been given power of arrest and issued a firearm, but instructed to only defend themselves and arrest those who damage mine property,” Jackson said “the police force just does not have the manpower to tackle the issue, and there hasn’t been enough damage to call in the national guard”

Opponents to this action call Sheriff Jackson “Irresponsible” and that this decision is a “violation of human rights and dignity”

BREAKING: MARCO ROSALES TO CHALLENGE CAMILLE DUQUESNE FOR SOCIALIST LEADER

Marco Rosales, the grandson of the late Daniel Rosales, has challenged Camille Duquesne for the leadership of the Socialist Party citing their election defeat

“It's time for real change! My grandfather campaigned and won on that platform in the historic election of 4338 that saw the first left-wing government in decades elected to power. The need for a progressive and patriotic opposition has never been higher, with a radical right-wing republican coalition in office”

He promises “a return to working-class values” with an emphasis on Hosian social teaching, Mordusian nationalism, and trade unionism. He is a vehement defender of the monarchy, citing the fact that 54.2% of Mordusians support the monarchy according to MPoll, calling them “an integral part of our culture”. He has also openly criticized Ahmadism, calling it “in desperate need of reform” and that “radical Ahmadism is one of the greatest threats to ordinary Mordusians”. He is fluent in Luthorian, Dorvish, Egelian, and Canrillaise, and was a diplomat at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs before being selected as the list leader for the Bayonne Socialist Party. He has selected Emily Bishop, from the Social Markets Institute in Rechtenburg, as his candidate for deputy leader

The Copper Murders: A Full Rundown

It started with a law. A law that’s purpose was to liberalize the labor market and reduce the power of the unions. The events that followed because the tragedy that we face today.

A few months ago, the workers at Rechtenburg Copper went on strike, both in protest of the new law repealing collective bargaining rights and the 8-hour day. The mine owner said from the beginning that he will never work with the Union and, after the bill passed, fired every one of his striking workers and brought in new workers.

Often times, one would think that this will be the end of the story, but it was not: many of the scabs opted to join the union. After one month of protest, spies from within the strike reported communist agitators who were planning to attack the mine.

Upon hearing of this, the sheriff hired a private security force and had them all temporarily deputized and granted a firearm. This ended up being as foolish of an idea as it sounds.

Pytor (Big Pete) Slavinga and Andre (Andy) Hefferman were immigrants to this country. Immigrants who speak neither Luthori nor Canrillaise. The other day, they were heading back from a bar and they stopped by at the strike.

Unbeknownst to them, they were outside of the boundaries legally set for the demonstrators. Overzealous temporary deputy Randall Smith saw this, drew his firearm and barked commands at the strikers. Since neither of them spoke Luthori, they turned and fled back in the direction that they came from and towards the mine.

Seven shots rang out. Both Pytor and Andre were declared dead on the scene. The aftermath of this tragic evening are yet to be seen, but Smith is currently waiting in police custody.
