2nd July, 4205

Political instability combined with internal disputes between various ethnic groups have created the impetus for internal instability within the Republic of New Alduria since its independence from the Luthorian Empire. In the Political spectrum, on one end of the river is the Labour Movement known as Drapeaux Rouges (Red Flags), which champions the cause of workers rights and the establishment of worker's state in the Republic of New Alduria lead by Clarence Lawrence. On the other end of the river is the Conservative and extremely anti-Labour Movement known as Chapeaux Bleus (Blue Hats). A look into the Labour history of the country would reveal the cause for the Chief Minister's introduction of Labour Rights into the country.

In 4178 labour agitations triggered disturbances and riots mainly the nation's sugar industry, which soon spread to different industrial sectors such as woodwork and fisheries. Rioting throughout the nation was succeeded by strike is specific sugar estates throughout the nation. Soon, years after these strikes spread to the coal mining industry and soon to the fishing industry, with fishers releasing their nets in response to the government's unwillingness to compromise on the matter of worker's compensation. Clarence Lawrence lead the labour movement through negotiations with the Central Government in a pre-civil unrest negotiations. These negotiations rendered futile as the requirements of the labour movement were immediately derailed by the Conservative populous ruling in the Legislative Council.

As a result of this, civil unrest erupted throughout the state, with moments of armed fighting between members of the Labour Movement's militia, Poing Noir (Black Fist) and the National Defence Forces. Posterior to the dispatching of a government liaison from the Luthorian Government, it was announced by said liaison that the government would aid the state with a £700,000 payout for colonial research. However, unknown to the Luthorian Liaison this payout was used by the Conservative lead government to fund the creation of its parliamentary scheme to hammer the last nail into the coffin against the Labour Movement. The Conservative Government intended on abolishing the right to strike entirely, reforming the constitution without the input of the Labour opposition. These plans were immediately derailed after the Poing Noir, under the command of Brigadier-General Clément Fremaux, stormed the Legislative Council taking the Chief Minister and his cabinet hostage.

A three month stand-off between the National Defence Force and the Poing Noir ensued. Unexpectedly, members of the National Defence Force launched a young officers coup in the country's capital, siding with the Poing Noir. On November 8th, 4200, then Chief Minister of New Alduria, Jean-François Moerman dissolved the parliament and his cabinet in-front of national television under the commands of the Poing Noir militants. Immediately, the Labour Opposition swooped into power to both restore order into the State and Introduce a pure workers' republic. Entering into the political spectrum was Matthias Desramaut, a former press secretary for the previous Chief Minister and secret member of the Drapeaux Rouges. Upon being appointed Chief Minister of the Republic of New Alduria, Desramaut introduced a series of Labour friendly legislation into the Legislative Council and began making steps to forming a purely democratic political system.

In the present, Chief Minister Desramaut has introduced legislation such as sympathy strike, strikes without ballots, democratic worker's council and anti-strike regulation. These legislation have virtually crippled the conservative power house from its core. Although, he is pro-labour and anti-Conservative, Chief Minister Desramaut is calling upon the nation to join in the cause of Pan-Aldurianism and abandon the causes of ethnic marginalization throughout the state, as he recognizes the elitist Luthorian and Canrillaise minority, saying: "If this nation is to prosper as we desire, it must become a state where every creed and race must find a place of equality and comfort. Our current system does not mirror these plans, however, i do not intend on allowing this marginalization to continue."

Aldurian Daily Report
Government clamps down on insurrectionist amid instability with Morgan Gang.

4th January, 44217

In a renewed attempt by the government to institute a severe clamp-down on crimes and insurrectionists in the country, Minister of National Security Cedric Dereumaux announced that the New Aldurian Defence Force would be involved in assisting the New Aldurian Police Directorate in implementing a clamp-down on serious crimes and insurrection in the nation. National Security Minister Dereumaux spoke in front of the National Security Ministry where he announced that the Ministry had every intention of systematically dismantling the criminal elements in the nation through any and all means necessary. Dereumaux's brutal approach towards crimes and security in the state is different from the laissez-faire approach taken by his predecessors.

In the times prior to Dereumaux's appointment as Minister of National Security, crime and corruption was at the centre of government attention, with a size-able percentage of the national budget being devoted towards national security. However, although the Ministry was given the budget necessary to curb the influence of crime in the country, there lacked the ability to execute the plans necessary. Corruption had found its way into the Police Directorate and the Defence Force, sending the nation into a downward spiral fueled by corruption and crime. Insurrectionists influence grew as a result of the government's inability to control the issue. It was main focus of the insurrectionists that the government must submit to their influence for they "controlled the services and mindset of the people." The Insurrectionists had carved up influence in the political system with some politicians pledging allegiance to the cause of criminal control of the nation in exchange for riches.

However, through Chief Minister Matthias Desramaut (who narrowly won the previous election) a renewed attempt of "retaking" the country was launched. Desramaut, after being elected and resolving the labour issues, made it clear to the insurrectionists whom he identified as the "Morgan Gang" that he intends on seeing them either behind bars or in coffins. He initial installed former Director of the Police Directorate Jared Davenport as National Security Minister thinking that a person he knew the system would be able to institute some form a formidable government response, however he was wrong in this judgement, for several months after being appointed as National Security Minister, Davenport resigned after members of the Morgan Gang threatened to brutally murder his entire family if he did not resign. Desramaut tried once more with another former Director of the Police Directorate but this failed as said person was assassinated whilst dinning in restaurant with his wife.

Desramaut knew that brutality was the only cure to the destruction being executed by the Morgan Gang. Desramaut, being a former member of the Defence Force, appointed his former platoon commander, Major-General Cedric Dereumaux as National Security Minister knowing that a brutal response to crime would be mounted. Cedric Dereumaux was known for his brutal methods of training and torture, which made him the best choice for National Security Minister. Immediately after being sworn in, Dereumaux cleansed the protective service, weeding out elements of corruption in the security service such as the Coastal Service, the Police Directorate and the Defence Force, firing and imprisoning 35,000 persons under the charges of corruption and treason against the state, a charge which carries the death penalty. Dereumaux managed to retake Morgan Gang strong holds in the government regions, forcing the Morgan Gang into its mountainous origins.

Dereumaux stated that the Defence Force will be taking a direct approach towards assisting the Police Directorate in clamping down on crime and insurrectionary resistance. He stated that branches such as the Internal Strike Task Force, especially would be on the search for leaders of the Morgan Gang, with the most recent being arrest being Ervan Pessod, the financier of the Morgan Gang. This was done after the Police Directorate obtained intelligence as to the location of Pessod, thereafter the Internal Strike Task Force intercepted Pessod whilst in transit by rapidly swarming his private vehicle in an ambush organized by the Counter-Insurgency Unit of the Defence Force.

Roots of Esinsundu
Sour Event: Emancipation celebrations turn controversial.
Emancipation celebrations shreds light on underlying cultural inequality throughout nation.
Image
Ⓨ: Esinsundu Cultural Society accentuates discrimination towards Esinsundu people in favour of "Whites".
10th December, 4350

Considered as being the first of its kind in the nation, the Esinsundu Cultural Society led marches throughout the nation in commemoration Esinsundu emancipation from the Luthorian East Dovanian Corporation. Since the emancipation of Esinsundu slaves at the hands of the collapsed East Dovanian Corporation, there had been no government recognised occasion aimed at commemorating the struggles of the Esinsundu ethnic group nor has there been any events organised to promote public awareness of the ethnicity's struggle towards emancipation. Although voices for government support and recognition of the ethnicity's contribution towards New Alduria's cultural diversification and the nation's greater history, said voices has been out-shadowed by the calls of the Canrillaise and Luthorians for increased government support for the Hosian faith. The Esinsundu Cultural Society orchestrated the marches in hopes of promoting public appreciation for the ethnicity's contribution towards New Aldurian history and to also educating the public on the pre- and post-emancipation practices of the ethnicity.

Against a backdrop of cultural inequality at the hands of the government which appears to favour the "Whites", President of the Esinsundu Cultural Society, Winston Dumas, who had recently moved from Malivian and into New Alduria, chastised the government for not giving the Esinsunda ethnicity the recognition it deserves, citing the government's promotion of the Hosian religion and its values and also the government's preference towards Canrillaise and Luthorians with respect to recognised government holidays.
The government has not shown their eagerness to represent its citizens. Their favouritism towards the whites is a testimony to the fact that we are not being giving the recognition we deserve as a people. Instead of being focused on solving the nation's internal issues, this government wants to focus on defence contracts and weapons. This only tells me that their priorities are not aligned with ensuring comfortable living for its citizens.


Dumas, a former historian and member of the defunct SEWTU (Sugar Estate Workers Trade Union), has championed the cause of Esinsunda awareness within New Alduria for more than twenty-five years. In response to the government's cultural fence-sitting, he announced that he will be forming a political party called the People's National Congress to contest in the parliament with the intention of promoting socialism and cultural equality in the nation. Although he may be moving into the field of politics, Dumas stated that he does not intend on leaving the Esinsundu Cultural Society as its President due to the fact that the ECS is the only apparatus he can currently utilise to promote the ethnicity and educate the public on its contributions.

According to Vice-President of the ECS, Nicholas Dufrais, demonstrations are currently being organised with the aims of funding the construction of various Esinsundu heritage sites throughout the nation which will, in return, promote the ethnicity and its principles.

11th December, 4350

Around 15,000 persons have joined in Sasolkwane in a march promoting the Esinsunduism during which campaigners’ voiced their opposition to the government's promotion of a homogeneous cultural identity. President of the Esinsundu Cultural Society and leader of the Esinsundu Movement for Justice (formerly the People's National Movement), Winston Dumas, labelled the incumbent government as "racists and oppressive statue worshippers". Dumas along with running partner Dufrais were one of the various voices championing the cause of anti-racism and pro-Esinsunduism in the nation. In a remarkable statement for the calm minded historian and activist, Dumas said that if the government does not: recognise the Esinsundu demographic's contribution to the nation's history, cease it acts of attempting to gradually introduce a homogeneous white state and cease discrimination towards people of Esinsundu decent, peaceful protests of the Esinsundu Movement for Justice will cease to exist, citing that they will most likely become violent.

Throughout the Sasolkwane, persons of Esinsundu decent were seen striking statues of Luthorian and Canrillaise politicians and figureheads and sweeping in-front of government offices with cocoyea brooms, gesturing that the movement intends on beating and sweeping the rubbish of racism out of the nation. Before the 15,000 strong crowd, Winston Dumas called for Esinsundus within the nation to rise up to claim their place as the rightful benefactors of New Alduria, calling on them to take back their country from the "white cockroaches." The demonstration was not short of criticism nor disapproval. Prime Minister Godefroy De Saint-Pierre blasted the demonstration, labelling it as "anti-aldurian and ultra-nationalist". Mr. Dumas hit back on the Prime Minister's comments:
Mr. De Saint-Pierre will never understand the meaning of aldurianism for he was born in Lourenne, I do not expect him to uphold our nation's interests, more so the interests of our people (Esinsundus). He will never understand the concept of Moranism, the teachings of our former brother Wardell Moran.

Currently, Winston Dumas' right-hand man, Nicholas Dufrais is in Ibutho for the "Summit of the Esinsundus" where he hopes to raise awareness for the cause currently unfolding in New Alduria. As the nation slips further and further into uncertainty, it is yet to be seen how the whites intend on responding.

General strike grinds nation to halt as Esinsundus lobby for equality

Ⓨ: Esinsundu-lead General Strike grinds national industrial centres to halt with aim of ending apartheid.
15th April, 4354.

Workers have dropped their tools and ceased their work at more than 100 companies across the nation as Esinsundu workers intensified their push for cultural equality within the nation. In what is shaping up to be the largest general strike since the labour disturbances decades ago, more than 200,000 persons are partaking in the general strike. The All-Esinsundu Workers Trade Union (AEWTU), formerly the Sugar Estate Workers Trade Union (SEWTU), the largest labour union in the country (chaired by Winston Dumas himself), which represent more than 3.5 million workers throughout the nation, orchestrated the general strike with the aims of illustrating to the central government that the Esinsundu population within the nation deserves respect as it is the industrial backbone of the nation. The argument of the AEWTU is that the Esinsundu population is being fazed out of the industrial sector by foreign workers from Luthori, Lourenne, Rildanor and Kanjor, and many are being forced into poverty due to the biased economic system which favours the wealthy white population.
Employers must recognise that times are changing and the racist apartheid driven policies in the government must end here. The government must make provisions for workers of all races, especially nationals to obtain jobs that are important to society and not replace us with cheap labour from other nations. The Esinsundu population in the backbone of this nation's economy and the government and their "friends" refuse to recognise this.

According to information from the Central Statistical Office, since the abolition of restrictions on labour in previous governments, Esinsundu involvement in the workplace has been mainly concentrated around the heavy industry sector in industries such as steel-making, machine tool building and mining. It is assumed that this is mainly due to the fact that economic hardship and domestic policies where it pertained to Esinsundus forced large amounts of the Esinsundu majority into the heavy industry leaving other commercial and administrative areas secured in the hands of the Canrillaise and Luthorian minority. Although various worker's unions have come together in protest of the government's decision to reverse labour rights established under previous governments, no one has come out in more force than the All-Esinsundu Workers Trade Union. Minister of Labour and Commercial Enterprise, Remi Magnier urged the general public to cease their protest action however did not offer anything to resolve the issue, confirming internal beliefs that the government has no intention of negotiating. Mr. Dumas in response to this said: "If they will not negotiate, we do not intend on negotiating on anything. Do not expect us (Esinsundus) at work tomorrow nor the days after until the government comes to our terms."

Political Party formed to challenge Conservative Bloc

Ⓨ: General Secretary of the Newly formed Le Changement (the Change), Winston Dumas addressing the Legislative Assembly
12th May, 4403

President of the Esinsundu Cultural Society and Chairman of the All-Esinsundu Workers Trade Union, Dr. Winston Dumas has announced the formation of a political party aimed at challenging the conservative bloc within the legislative assembly. Coined, the Le Changement (the Change), it aims at directly challenging the conservative bloc within the nation, which has held power within the nation for decades and according to Dumas, is the reason as to why Esinsundus are not allowed to progress within the nation due to their oppressive and apartheid leaning policies. According to Dumas, the progressive bloc within the nation had showed little interest in challenging the stronger conservative bloc, mainly due to the fact that it consists of two political parties APU (All Progressive Union) and the CFSC (Congress for Social Change) whilst the conservative bloc consisted of four political parties Chapeaux Bleus (Blue Hats), the Parti Conservateur (Conservative Party) , Tradition and Front Démocratique Uni (United Democratic Front). After the government set the election process to be triggered on a 10 years basis, the APU and the CFSC have significantly reduced their strife against the conservative bloc as they witnessed the government extend their term in power.

It has been stated that Le Changement had been formed out of the outrage of the conservative bloc's oppressive policies and in disappointment of the failures of the established progressive bloc. Dr. Dumas stated that he had every intention of consolidating the left-wing bloc within the nation under an umbrella entity, that being his own movement, Le Changement. It has been stated that negotiations between Dennard Renouf of the APU, Lucien Bourguignon of the CFSC and Dr. Dumas had been initiated and were on-going. The Esinsundu Aldurian population has shown its intention to support Le Changement as various individuals continue their general strike however instead of wearing traditional colours have decided to wear green, yellow and red, the colours of Le Changement.

Chief Minister denounces general strike

Ⓨ: Chief Minister of New Alduria, Godefroy De Saint-Pierre speaking before the media.
12th May, 4403

Chief Minister Godefroy De Saint-Pierre entered the racist discord between the Esinsundu Cultural Society and the government, denouncing the general strike launched by the All-Esinsundu Workers Trade Union, labelling the movement's actions of "disloyal to the progress of the nation." The Chief Minister's radio address came immediately after esinsindu workers of the metals industry left their postings and joined other striking esinsundu's in their march around the nation's capital. "The Esinsundu Cultural Society and the All-Esinsundu Workers Trade Union is sponsoring discord rather than unity within the nation. Their actions are putting this nation's economy at risk of collapse." Chief Minister De Saint-Pierre had remained in the background of the situation, mainly casting aside skirmishes between himself and head of the Esinsundu Cultural Society, Winston Dumas, however he had mainly left matters pertaining to the ECS to Minister of the Interior Jean-Claude Affré. Affré has been a stringent opponent of the Esinsundu Cultural Society since its formation posterior to Dumas' migration from Malivia. Affré argues that as Dumas is not a native of the nation he should have little to no input as it pertains to the nation's structures of governance and the relationship between the Esinsundu population and the white population.

Prior to the Chief Minister's announcement, Winston Dumas announced the formation of a political movement that would serve to champion the interests of the Esinsundu population. During this address, Chief Minister De Saint-Pierre de-legitimised the political party, labelling it as a "sham" and an attempt to cause friction and discord within the legislative assembly. Earlier in the day, protests around the nation's capital were met with a heavy handed police response as it had been reported more than 15 people had been injured in clashed between protesters and police officers as the protesters were forcibly routed away from the Legislative Assembly. It had been reported that Vice President of the ECS, Nicholas Dufrais had been detained and is currently in police custody under charges of inciting violence against the state. Chief Minister De Saint-Pierre warned that striking action could be met with government legislation granting permission for employers to fire employees who have gone on strike. De Saint-Pierre accused the strikers and Dumas of holding the nation's economy at ransom and accused the ECS and the All-Esinsundu Workers Trade Union (AEWTU) of holding a gun to the head of the nation's economy in an attempt to "obtain rights they already have".

Mr. Dumas stated that the government of Chief Minister Godefroy De Saint-Pierre was transitioning the nation towards authoritarianism and cementing the white population's grip on social, political and economic life within the nation. In response to the clashes between the government and protesters in the capital, Marcus Potiphar, front-runner of the Morgan Gang voiced support for Dumas and the cause of the Esinsundu Cultural Society. Potiphar stated that the Morgan Gang would offer security for all Esinsundu gatherings, citing that the clashes between the police and the Esinsundu strikers should never be repeated.

Chief Minister Rallies Nation in Face of Dovani Union Invasion

Image
Chief Minister Joseph de Agincourt Watching the Arrival of Northern Council Troops

Newly appointed Chief Minister Joseph de Agincourt has put out a renewed call for arms as his nation faces down an invasion by the Dovani Union. In a public address to the Legislative Assembly the Chief Minister announced a wartime National Unity Cabinet that combined his Progressive Conservatives, with the Liberal Democrats, the Esinsundu dominated Le Changement and the even the far right Luthori dominated Freedom Party.

Today we are not a partisian assembly but all New Aldurians. This Dovani Union and the machinations of Emperor Azeez wishes to see our identity erased and replaced by his own Dovani Union dominate us. We will not be bullied by any nation any longer. I have invited all the Leaders of all Political Parties to a united cabinet, of which they have all accepted even as I have authorized the full might of our Northern Council friends to assist us. We will not go quietly into the night! We will live on and will always be New Alduria!


Chief Minister de Agincourt has ordered all New Aldurian forces to place themselves under the command of the Northern Council for the duration of the conflict, who up until the entry of the Northern Council had fallen back repeatedly. Now reinforced by Northern Council ground and air forces, New Alduria ground forces have retaken some ground and stablized the front line, looking only to hold the Dovani Union invasion force in place until the Northern Council arrives further in force.

New Alduria Seals the Border, Offers Humanitarian Aid

Chief Minister Marcel du Champ, announced emergency measures to contain the spread of the renewed spread of Wolfsheim from their southwestern neighbour. The border was entirely sealed and cut off, with New Aldurian Defence Forces reinforcing the border security agents, and were joined by specialist forces from Northern Council Joint Operations Base General Paul Driscoll, including several specialists from Fort Brett Hawkins, the Hutorian Armed Forces' Royal Medical Corps' HQ in northern Adelia.

Colonel Jeremy Miller, a spokesperson for the RMC gave the following statement.

Fort Brett Hawkins has dedicated itself to studying deadly diseases and plagues since it was founded by President Drumf one hundred and fifty year ago. Wolfsheim was our original reason for existence and that has remained at the top of our research list. If we can offer our expertise at all to assist the ongoing crisis we will, including how to spot symptoms, containment, amongst others. We will not allow this to become another world wide epidemic.
