    Dear readers of the Arbeiter Zeitung,

    The Editorial Board of Die Volksrepublik welcomes you to the new official online newspaper of our glorious National-Syndikalistische Volkspartei. In accordance with the Party's desire to further develope technology and guarantee a free and equal access to information for all the women, men and working citizens of the People's Republic of Ostmark, Die Volksrepublik will offer high-quality articles to cover all the news, facts, national and local events.

    Die Volksrepulik is the newspaper of the people, for the people, written by the people and the best economists, writers, journalists, philosophers and ideologues our society can offer.

    We will never forget the day the first copies of the Arbeiter Zeitung reached the factories of Ostmarkische Motoren Werke at the very dawn of our revolutionary movement, which presided by our Wise Leader Volkskanzler Horst Grasser, led a handful of disheartened comrades from the days of sorrow, to the days of our National Revolution.

    Die Volksrepublik is the expression of the National-Syndikalistische Volkspartei and, therefor, it is your voice too. The voice of the sovereign Working Class of Ostmark, the voice of the poor, the voice of the oppressed people of Europe, the voice of the heroines and the heroes who refuse to surrender to oppression, tyranny, poverty and submission.

    We will give voice to the Kameraden who, standing proud from a smoking heap of rubbles, achieved the most historically valiant of all victories: the National-Syndicalist Revolution.

    People of Ostmark, the days of sorrow are over!

    OSTMARK APPROVES PLAN FOR NEW EQUAL PAY LAW
    Law on Equal Wages and Salaries for Women and Men will ensure that women have equal opportunities as key partners in the National-Syndicalist Revolution.

    Hello there guest. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!


    By Heinrich Obenaus

    WIEN (Ostmark) - The Kanzleramnt presided by Wise Leader Volkskanzler Horst Grasser has approved the issuance of legislation to ensure equal pay for women and men working in the country. According to a spokeswoman of the National-Syndicalistische Volkspartei, the Law on Equal Wages and Salaries for Women and Men will ensure that women have equal opportunities as partners in Ostmark's economic and social development, and to further empower women to lead future national strategies and ambitious projects.

    She added that Volkskanzler Grasser has been consolidating efforts to narrow the gender gap. Last week, the Commission for Gender Balance was established by the Permanent Revolutionary Committee to position the People's Republic of Ostmark among the leading countries in the world in terms of gender balance. "The Kanzleramnt’s approval of the new law is in line with the government’s objective to ensure the protection of women's rights and support their role in the national development process," said Volkskanzler Grasser during a press conference.

    The law is also part of the strategy of the Laura Grasser Foundation, created by Volkskanzler Grasser in memory of his defunct wife to fight the gender gap and to enhance women's rights in the People's Republic of Ostmark. The Laura Grasser Foundation is presided by Hannah Grossman, chairwoman of the National-Syndicalist Women's League, Vice-Speaker of the People's Assembly and founding member of the National-Syndikalistische Volkspartei. "Renewing its committment to create a society built on equality and labour, the National-Syndicalist People's Party reaffirms its effort to dismantle archaic forms of suprematism imposed and handed down to us by the ousted capitalist oppressors" said Ms. Grossman in a statement.

    VOLKSRAT PROPOSES OVERHAUL OF NATIONAL ANTHEM
    "Too vague and not majestic enough" says People's Assembly deputy Mangold.


    By Heinrich Obenaus

    WIEN (Ostmark) - Deputies of the People's Assembly have proposed an overhaul of Ostmark's national anthem, which has been deemed "too vague" and not majestic enough, reports say. The song Arbeiter Von Wien, or Workers of Vienna, was written by Ostmarkische Motoren Werke technician Rupert Khal to music by Walter Laufenberg in 2017. The People's Republic of Ostmark adopted the song in October 2018 after the victory of the National-Syndicalist People's Party in the October 7th general elections. Deputies suggested Arbeiter Von Wien should serve as the anthem of the NSVP, while a new song should be identified to serve as the People's Republic's national anthem during sport events and official ceremonies.

    Volkskanzler Horst Grasser expressed perplexity at the changes proposed by the Volksrat, but said he nevertheless respects the role and the authority of the People's Assembly as legislative body of the Volksrepublik and as the expression of the people's will. Deputy Peter Mangold suggested his colleagues of the National-Syndikalistische Volkspartei to support his motion to elevate Ostmarkian patriotic song Auferstanden aus Ruinen, or Risen from Ruins, as the new national anthem of the People's Republic of Ostmark "Auferstanden aus Ruinen is, given its lyrics and its music, the most plausible candidate to express both the revolutionary spirit of our People's Republic, and its genuine desire for peace and progress" said Deputy Mangold in a statement. Auferstanden aus Ruinen has been widely used during official ceremonies as an opening theme along with Ostmark's national anthem Arbeiter von Wien.

    OSTMARK TO BEGIN CONSTRUCTION OF COASTAL DEFENCES
    "Over two thousand citizens will be conscripted in the Volksarbeitsdienst" said Vizekanzler Ludwig Bohmer.

    WIEN (Ostmark) - "The People's Labour Service will conscript over two thousand unemployed citizens" said Vizekanzler and Vice-Chairman of the National-Syndikalistische Volkspartei Ludwig Bohmer during a press conference. The Volksrat approved with unanimity the plan proposed by Volkskanzler Horst Grasser to build a number between 25 and 40 Coastal Guns. Vizekanzler Bohmer then answered questions during a press conference stating that "The defense of Ostmark is our supreme duty, and it must be guaranteed on land, air and sea. The capabilities of the Volksarmee and the Volksmarine to defend our coastline are at optimal levels, but the lack of physical coastal defences is an issue the Kanzleramnt of the People's Republic has been discussing for a while. We realized our capabilities to face an amphibious assaults were severely compromised by such lack of fortifications" said Vizekanzler Bohmer.

    The construction will begin after Christmas "To allow workers who adhere to religious cults to spend Christmas holidays with their family" said Bohmer. When asked which company will be tasked with the construction of the coastal defences, Vizekanzler Bohmer announced the task will be entrusted to Ostmarkische Metallwaren. The weapons and military vehicles manufacturer "Has the capabilities and the equipment to sustain the construction effort". Given the ammount of work and resources needed, the People's Labour Service will recruit an additional 2000 workers to be conscripted among the unemployed and the poor "This is part of our strategy to defeat unemployment and provide families with an income sufficient to ensure an honourable existence. For each OstMark issued by the People's Central Bank of Ostmark, the equivalent of one OstMark must be provided by the worker in the form of physical labour in order to prevent hyperinflation" added Vizekanzler Bohmer.

    Volkskanzler Horst Grasser praised the approval of the project and renewed its commitment to further increase internal demand by financing infrastructural projects and conscripting unemployed citizens to be employed in the construction efforts. The Volksarbeitsdienst currently employs over 9000 Ostmarkian men and women who contributed to road maintance and the construction of new residential buildings in the outskirts of Wien. The coastal defense project is estimated will be completed in mid February 2019.

    STÄNDIGER REVOLUTIONÄRER AUSSCHUSS SUGGESTS TIMELY CHANGES TO NATIONAL FLAG

    A proposed flag.

    By Heinrich Obenaus

    WIEN (Ostmark) - The Permanent Revolutionary Committee has addressed the Kanzlaramnt of the People's Republic on the issue of Ostmark's national flag. Unchanged since the 14th century, the colors of the national flag are considred by the members of the Committee as "too reminiscent of a unjust past". The Committee suggested to adopt timely changes that can radically mark a distinction between the flag of the monarchy and the liberal republic, to enhance the distinctive traits of the People's Republic born after the National-Syndicalist revolution. Volkskanzler Grasser expressed his support for the motion proposed by the Committe, and asked Ostmarkian artists to submit their proposals to be reviewed by the end of the week. "The flag must reflect the Germanic ancestry of Ostmark, and the emblem of the National-Syndikalistische Volkspartei must lay in the center of the flag" said a spokesperson for the Ministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda.

    Dozens of proposals have already been submitted by ostmarkian women and men who wish to contribute to the future of the Volksrepublik, and Volkskanzler Grasser praised the astonishing participation of the public in the initiative of the Permanent Revolutionary Committee "Our Volksrepublik allows all citizens to participate in the decision making process that shapes the present and will shape the future of our fatherland" said Volkskanzler Grasser. Volksrat deputy Peter Mangold also expressed support for the proposal. Mangold also recently proposed the adoption of a new national anthem.

    VOLKSRAT APPROVES "MANGOLD MOTION" ON NEW NATIONAL ANTHEM AND FLAG
    The National-Syndikalistische Volkspartei brings timely changes to national symbols.

    By Heinrich Obenaus

    WIEN (Ostmark) - Volksrat deputy Peter Mangold performed the victory sign at photographers and cameramen after the People's Assembly approved his motion to elevate patriotic song Auferstanden aus Ruinen to the status of National Anthem of the People's Republic of Ostmark. The previous anthem, Arbeiter von Wien, will serve as the anthem of the National-Syndikalistische Volkspartei. A few hours later, following a debate, the Volksrat approved a second motion that suggested a new flag to replace the red-white-red tricolour flag described as "An heritage of unjust times" by deputy Peter Mangold. The National-Syndikalistische Volkspartei is on a row of reforms and modifications to the country's national symbols in an attempt to cut the ties with a past the Ostmarkian people ought to forget.

    In the morning Volkskanzler Horst Grasser expressed satisfaction for the success of deputy Mangold's initiative and praised his efforts to strengthen the National-Syndicalist revolution
    "It is important however that we do not forget who we are and where we come from. We will always remember the hardships and the suffering we've been throught. We believe in a system of equality and solidarity. And we will defend this system as far as humanly possible. People of Ostmark, the days of sorrow are over." said Volkskanzler Grasser in a statement.

    With the introduction of a new national flag, the six centuries old red-white-red tricolour flag of the Duchy of Ostmark, later known as Ostmarkische Reich, has officially ceased to exist. Even if historians have failed to explain the meaning and the origin of the flag, the flag of the Ostmarkische Reich was designed by the early members of the Von Wien dynasty who migrated to the Eastern Border (in German: Ostmark) of Germania in the late thirteen century from a region currently in the jurisdiction of the Kingdom of Elben.

    GRENZTRUPPEN TO BOOST RECRUITMENT EFFORTS
    At least 2500 Border Guards to be recruited by the end of January 2019

    Hello there guest. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!


    By Heinrich Obenaus

    WIEN (Ostmark) - A spokesperson of the Grenztruppen announced today the beginning of a recruitment campaign aimed at boosting the ranks of the border brigades by at least 2500 units. The border brigades can currently count on over 7000 highly trained soldiers who are privileged with upholding the sacred duty of patrolling and protecting the borders of the People's Republic.

    Capable of carrying out scout and combat operations on all types of terrains and in any weather condition, the Border Guards of the People's Republic of Ostmark guarantee a meticulous surveillance of our national borders around the clock. Among the tasks performed by the Grenztruppen there are anti-smuggling operations, traffic patrol duties, identification and neutralization of escaped convicts, and they can count on a wide array of offroad vehicles and four helicopters, to reach the most inhospitable landscape.

    Volkskanzler Horst Grasser reminded how the defense of the borders of the People's Republic is a sacred duty "The moment we lower our awareness and our readiness, is the moment the enemies of the People's Republic will strike. We must keep our alert at maximum levels, always, to defend the achievements of the National-Syndicalist Revolution, and defend our children from the globalist hyenas who are eager to feast on our nation. People of Ostmark, the days of sorrow are over!" said Volkskanzler Grasser in a statement.

    THOUSANDS OF SOLDIERS UNVEIL OSTMARK'S INVINCIBLE WILL IN MILITARY PARADE

    "Let us gather around the banners of the National-Syndikalistische Volkspartei!" said Wise Leader Volkskanzler Horst Grasser.

    Hello there guest. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!


    By Heinrich Obenaus


    WIEN (Ostmark) - Over three thousand soldiers of the 2. Volksgrenadier Division followed by Kobra-76 Main Battle Tanks, SDK-81 infantry fighting vehicles and Bremmer-D84 self-propelled air defense systems, reaffirmed the strenght and the invincible will of the People's Republic of Ostmark in one of the largest parades ever held in Wien's Leninovplatz since the National-Syndicalist October Revolution.

    The heroic batallions of the People's Defense proudly marched under the tribune to salute Wise Leader Volkskanzler Grasser as he reviewed the heroines and the heroes who protect the borders of the Volksrepublik against enemies without and within. The Volksrepublik, united under the banner of the Grasserist Idea and strong to its pledge of self-reliance and military autonomy, once again warns the enemies of the sovereign ostmarkian working class, and renews its pledge to defend the achievements of the National-Syndicalist Revolution.

    "Kameraden, the readiness of our glorious Volkswehr has reached unprecedented levels. The militaries of the west are well aware of the invincible will and superior capabilities of the heroic women and men who, with spirit of self-sacrifice and abnegation, serve the Volksrepublik and swear to defend its integrity and independence against all enemies. The masters of the factories and the giant capitalists of Europe shall once again tremble as we shout our battle cry of freedom: People of Ostmark, the days of sorrow are over!" said Comrade Volkskanzler Grasser in an address to the soldiers of the 2. Volksgrenadier Division.

    FRANZ KOHLER SENTENCED TO DEATH

    Former chancellor in court as the verdict was being read.

    Hello there guest. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!


    By Heinrich Obenaus

    WIEN (Ostmark) - Former chancellor Franz Kohler has been convicted of high treason and incitement to suicide and sentenced to death by firing squad. He was convicted over the austerity policies enforced between 2014 and 2018 and the 3192 suicides caused by economic hardships the prosecution blamed on the economic policies of the former chancellor. Former Vice-Chancellor Robert Scholz got life in jail and three others received 15-year prison terms. Franz Kohler and his co-defendants will be given the right to appeal, but that is expected to take only one week and to end in failure for the defendants.

    Volkskanzler Horst Grasser hailed the conviction in a televised address, saying that the sentence was "not a sentence on one man, but a sentence against all the dark period of his rule. Maybe this will help alleviate the pain of the widows and the orphans, and those who buried their loved ones, and those who have been forced to suppress their feelings and suffering, and those who have paid at the hands of oppressors. People of Ostmark, the days of sorrow are over." Grasser said. Vizekanzler Ludwig Bohmer hailed the verdict as a milestone in the efforts of the Ostmarkian people "to replace the rule of a capitalist tyrant with the rule of sovereignty and equality".

    When called to court, Franz Kohler, dressed in his usual dark suit and white shirt, walked to his seat and sat down. The judge ordered him to stand while he read out the verdict, but the former chancellor refused to do so and had to be moved from his seat by court attendants. The former leader looked shocked and furious as the sentence was passed, and continued to shout, denouncing the court, the judge and the National-Syndicalist People's Party. The verdict sparked celebrations in Wien.

    LUDWIG IV, THE LAST KING OF OSTMARK, DIES AT 98

    "A patriot who dedicated his life to defend Ostmark's independence" said Volkskanzler Horst Grasser.

    Hello there guest. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!


    By Heinrich Obenaus

    WIEN (Ostmark) - Ostmark's last King, Ludwig IV, the onetime boy monarch forced at gunpoint to abdicate by a republican revolution in 1957, died last night at his home in Wien. He was 98. The cause of death was not immediately announced in a statement from the survivors of the royal house, but the former monarch had been treated for cancer for at least the past year, the family had earlier announced. King Ludwig IV, a member of the Von Wien House and a distant relative of the Elbener royal nobility, was one of the last surviving links to Ostmark's monarchist past. He lived a life defined by isolation and silence and ignored nearly every major upheaval on the continent in the past century.

    Banished after the republican uprising of 1957, he spent decades in exile before returning to his homeland amid the pardon granted by People's Chancellor Horst Grasser. He eventually carved out a role as an opinionist, expressing initial support for the National-Syndicalist People's Party in 2017, in the hope Horst Grasser would eventually pave the way for the return of the monarchy. In 1936 he became one of Europe's youngest kings after the death of his father, Ludwig III. Although King Ludwig IV was said to have harbored diplomatic ties to the West and in particular with the Kingdom of Elben, his country firmly stood on the isolationist stance which characterized Ostmark throughout its six centuries old history.

    Volkskanzler Horst Grasser sent his condolences to the surviving members of the Von Wien dinasty, and praised King Ludwig IV for his efforts to defend Ostmark's independence and sovereignty amid the many continental crisis and geopolitical forces which strangled Ostmark in a neverending rivalry between the East and the West. "While the National-Syndikalistische Volkspartei cannot express sympathy for the monarchy as a form of government, as an Ostmarkian citizen i admire the efforts of King Ludwig IV to defend the nation's sovereignty and independence during troubled times. We cannot historically blame the Von Wien family for the sorrow and the suffering which we have endured in the past four years, and for this reason i hereby announce that King Ludwig IV will be granted an official State Funeral with all the required honors and ceremonies. All citizens are invited to take part to the funeral, to remember and commemorate a great man who dedicated his life to defend the independence of our nation and the freedom of its people. Given the exceptional circumstances, i extend the invitation to the Elbener royal family." said Volkskanzler Grasser in a statement.

    From: Real houses of Mediceo Lorena of Grand Duchy of Lars
    Subject: Condolence

    Her Royal Highness The Grand Duchess Isabella I of Lars extend his deepest condolences to the Royal House of Von Wien House. The death of a King, is always a sad event, even more if well liked by his own people. King Ludwig IV certainly represents the embodiment of values that the modern Ostmark no longer embraces, but we are happy that the government has granted him the honor of a state funeral.

    A King deserves respect as a man. We hope that there will be the Royal flag on the coffin, as tradition asks.​

    Sincerely, HRH Grand Duchess Isabella I of Lars​

    By Klara Feld


    WIEN (Ostmark) - Emerging Ostwave music project Neonkampfer, released its first single Blinker on iOstMusik today. True to the fundamental technical principles of the Ostwave Sound, frontwoman and lead vocals Franziska Kruger described the debut single as "Women's incursion" in the clubbing subculture of the capital city.

    Considered by many as an ever expanding phenomenon, Ostwave is rumored to have caught the attention of the highest functionaries of the National-Syndicalist People's Party, including Volkskanzler Horst Grasser who, according to unofficial sources, considers hismelf "A great fan" of the music genre. Meanwhile, popular Ostwave artists Futurevolk and Laserwehr confirmed their plan to request permission to organize tours in western and eastern Europe's clubs. The two artists recently revealed that Ostwave unexpectedly crossed Ostmark's border and gained a surprising fanbase in Shaeoiumlah.

    The Volksministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda expressed initial perplexities but promised to examine the music producers' legitimate request in accordance with the law, a spokesperson for music magazine Ostwave Underground Collective said in a statement.

    We extend our condolences to the Royal House of Von Wien. Also we keep good memories of King Ludwig IV, and acknowledge his efforts to improve the situation in Ostmark. We also thank Volkskanzler Grasser for his gratitude to the deceased King, and for granting King Ludwig a state funeral. The Eiffelloretalian embassy in Wien will fly the flag half-mast during the mourning period. The Churches in Eiffelland-Retalia will include formal prayers for King Ludwig, and the Royal Family of Eiffelland will remember the King in their prayers.

    Albrecht von Dietz-Hadamar, King of Eiffelland and Grand-Duke of Retalia
    Dr. Stephan Röpke, Demissionary Chancellor of Eiffelland-Retalia

    OOC: Sorry for replying so late. Can we presume that these condolences were extended before the funeral?

    WIEN (Ostmark) - A firing squad of the Volkswehr executed former Chancellor Franz Kohler before dawn as punishment for his role in the default of Ostmark's economy and the implementation of heavy austerity policies which, according to the court, are responsible for the 3192 suicides that occured in the years examined by the commission. A video of the execution broadcast on state television showed Kohler, being led in the center of the square by a platoon of the People's Defense. A witness, judge Carl Rudolf Mannerheim, said that one of the executioners told Kohler that the former chancellor had destroyed Ostmark and caused incommensurable suffering upon its people, which sparked an argument that was joined by several government officials, including Volkskanzler Horst Grasser. As the firing squad lined up to carry out the execution, the commanding officer yelled "People of Ostmark! The days of sorrow are over!,". Kohler appeared totally oblivious to what was going on around him. The execution was followed by street celebrations.

    Volkskanzler Grasser used it as an opportunity to plead for national unity "Kameraden! In the name of the people I call on all men of the past capitalist regime and manipulated by it to reconsider their stances," Grasser said in a speech broadcatsed on television after the execution. "The door is still open for every person who does not have blood of innocents on his hands to join in building National-Syndicalist Ostmark, which will be for all citizens without exceptions or discrimination." he added.

    Vizekanzler Ludwig Bohmer said that while the execution was carried out with due respect to Kohler - and following "all international standards" - hundreds of witnesses and the executioners could not resist celebrating by dancing around the body after the execution. "It's a very ordinary action of a number of people - some of them officials, some of them ordinary people, even the executioners as well because they have lost their loved ones - their fathers, brothers, sisters - this is a natural reaction," he said. "I would like to make this day a day of unity of Ostmarkians," Bohmer said. "We need to look forward and progress toward stability, security and prosperity of the People's Republic of Ostmark, so that no mother shall again mourn her son in woe." he added. A spokesperson of the Office of the Volkskanzleramnt stated that Kohler's body will be buried in accordance with the Tiburan Catholic rite in an undisclosed location, as requested by his family.

    OSTMARK'S VOLKSWEHR FLEXES ITS MUSCLES IN LARGEST MILITARY EXERCISE EVER HELD
    "We shall crush the enemies of the people" said Volkskanzler Grasser.


    By Heinrich Obenaus

    WIEN (Ostmark) - Thousands of Volkswehr personnel are on the move for one of the largest military exercises ever held in Ostmark. Codenamed as Fall Oktoberrevolution, this military exercise is held twice a year - in spring and winter. The first of this year's exercises runs to 29th December and involves submarines of the Volksmarine and elements of the Kampfgruppen der Arbeiterklasse aswell as several brigades of the Volksarmee. Live firing training will also be held in the northwestern mountains near the border with Eiffelland-Retalia. Fourty-five armoured vehicles and more than ten aircrafts will be used during Fall Oktoberrevolution.

    Units taking part include elements from the 21. Volksgrenadier-Division "Vaterland", 3. Kampfgruppen der Arbeiterklasse "Horst Grasser" and the 1. Panzer-Division "Ostmark". About hundreds of the thousands personnel involved are co-ordinating the exercise from the Oberkommando der Volkswehr HQ in Wien. In the land based training, Volkswehr ad KDaK personnel have been joined by special forces of the Volkspolizei. Wise Leader Volkskanzler Horst Grasser addressed the troops just before the beginning of the military games, and reaffirmed the fundamental role of the People's Defense in the efforts to defend and secure the achievements of the National-Syndicalist Revolution.

    "Men and Women of the Volkswehr, the National-Syndikalistische Volkspartei entrusts you with the most important of all duties: defend the borders of the People's Republic and the achievements of the October Revolution. Maximum readiness must be guaranteed at all times, for the hour of danger will reveal itself when we will less expect it. The capitalist elites of Europe are eager to feast and prey on our working class, on our national resources, on the rights we have conquered and the freedoms we have secured in the past three months. The enemies of the working class can count on a wide array of supporters, within and outside Ostmark. They are traitors who cowardly betrayed the proletarian masses by swearing allegiance to the giant capitalists, and devoted themselves to money and are eagerly, avidly grasping for more profit. If the enemies of the people will dare to set foot within the borders of the glorious and invincible People's Republic of Ostmark, they shall be exterminated! People of Ostmark, the days of sorrow are over!" said Volkskanzler Horst Grasser in an address to the troops.

    Dear Citizens of the People's Republic of Ostmark,

    I bring to you the heartiest greetings of the National-Syndikalistische Volkspartei and the government of the People's Republic of Ostmark. In this time of struggle you have come to this impressive gathering in the center of Wien. In Wien, the city of peace, your unshakable will now more than ever to do everything for the strengthening of our National-Syndicalist fatherland, the People's Republic of Ostmark, and for the safeguarding of peace, will be reinforced. Through your splendid accomplishments in the past three months, you have demonstrated unmistakably that the love, the loyalty, and the deeds of our Volk belong to the People's Republic of Ostmark, the state of National-Syndicalism, justice, equality, and peace.

    Dear Kameraden!

    Here in this building, on October 8th i proclaimed the National-Syndicalist State. Infront of this building, in Volksrepublikplatz, we have gathered dozens of times, during the Days of Sorrow, and fought for a society built on labor, bread, and freedom. Today this building, the scene of so many historic events, is named after our Volksrepublik, the state of true freedom and social justice. Our revolutionary ideas are becoming reality. Our People's Republic of Ostmark, a state of workers and farmers, proves this. So does your powerful demonstration on this day of joy and celebration.

    Three months of People's Republic of Ostmark have been three months of hard struggle for peace and National-Syndicalism. Our people, under the leadership of the National-Syndicalist People's Party of the Working Classes, has truly done great things during these months. We are filled with joy that you, under the sign of the Hammer and Sword, display the same revolutionary spirit for the strengthening and defense of National-Syndicalist Ostmark.

    Gatherings of the National-Syndicalist People's Party are always festivals of peace and anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist solidarity. Today too your call for peaceful cooperation between the nations and the friendship of the people of all nations rings out. We are happy that the people of Ostmark are ever and always in the front ranks of the struggle against imperialist policies and for the happiness of the nations. You are the revolutionary guard of fighters for peace and National-Syndicalism.

    Today peace is seriously threatened by the aggressive striving for supremacy and growing armaments. There is nothing more important for us than to devote every energy to protect our integrity and our independence. The People's Republic of Ostmark will never use war as an instrument for settling international disputes. We have accepted the responsibility of never again permitting violence and misery to begin on Ostmarkian soil. That is how we act. We do not want peace only for our and your generations:

    We want peace for your children and your children’s children. We want peace for all times, for ever! Never again a mother shall mourn her son in woe! National-Syndicalism means Peace! And National-Syndicalism brings peace! We are for peaceful coexistence. There is no reasonable alternative.

    People of Ostmark, the days of sorrow are over!

    *The camera slowly zooms out. The flags of the People's Republic and the National-Syndicalist People's Party fade back in on the screen, accompanied by the last stanza of the national anthem. "Happy New Year" appears in the center.*

    NEW AFFORDABLE HOUSES COMPLETED IN WIEN
    Vizekanzler Ludwig Bohmer celebrates the completion of four flats.

    WIEN (Ostmark) - The four new flats in Blucher Strasse are part of the new urban extension which will provide hundreds of new homes over the next year, all of them will be affordable and assigned to homeless citizens and large families struggling to meet month's end. The project is part of the None Shall Freeze, None Shall Starve decree approved by the People's Assembly in November. The new energy-efficient homes are being allocated through the local chapter of the National-Syndicalist People's Party, which prioritises homeless people and large families.

    “A shortage of affordable housing can have a detrimental impact on communities; contributing to both social isolation and segregation by forcing people to move away from their support networks and sacrifice their sense of place,” says Vizekanzler Ludwig Bohmer. “We are delighted that these new homes will enable local people who are currently priced out of the housing market, find high quality housing in an area that they want to live in. We have enjoyed working with the People's Labour Service on this important scheme and look forward to building more affordable homes where they are most needed in the capital city.” he added.

    The People's Labour Service contributed to the local authority-led community project which will provide a play zone and woodland walk designed by local children, a community centre, garden allotments, a medical center, and a Volkspolizei station. Public open spaces and play areas are also planned for the development over the next few years. Affordable housing development came at a time when the average cost of a house was twenty times the average local salary, and typical market rents were over 75% of the average earnings. The project is currently employing over five hundred workers of the Volksarbeitsdienst and employs over nine thousand on a national level.
