Provisional Chairman Murat relaxes ban on political parties

Following the announcement of the February elections Chairman Murat has stated that the pan on political parties in the All Burgundian National Congress will be lifted with members of Congress free to create their own political parties and seek support from the Burgundian public. " Our Republic has nothing to fear from honest debate" Murat stated to the gathered press. So far Chairman Murat has been the first to register a political party The Burgundian People's Party, however it is expected that many more members of the All Burgundian National Congress will do likewise.

Government urges citizens to join new civil services

The Provisional Government is urging qualified citizens to join the Republic's new civil services."The government must be made efficient and robust in order to best serve the Burgundian people" Say Provisional Interior Minister Heinrich Bergmann.

Militias begin integrating into the National Republican Army

Following the declaration of the People's Republic men and women across the nation took up arms in defense of freedom. Many of these brave patriots formed their own militia bands independent of the Provisional Government in Pillau. Now that liberty has been restored and peace reigns it is time for those militiamen still bearing arms to be integrated full into the Republic's armed forces.

We welcome the continued development of leftist democracy in the Burgundian People's Republic. However, the importance of one-party democracy should not be taken lightly either. The All Burgundian National Congress has been a force for good and we recognize its many efforts to topple the old Grand Ducal system in the country.

Furthermore, the Armed Forces of Serenierre are ready to assist the National Republican Army organise and redevelop its core strength as it establishes itself formally.

The Honorable Aerlene Bouchard
Foreign Minister
The Burgundian People’s Republic
Pilau, Free Bourgogne

Dear Minister Bouchard,

I write to you today to express, on behalf of the Second Aurarine Republic, sincere congratulations that the Burgundian People’s Republic is prepared and willing to host free and fair elections involving full participation from the country’s varying political factions. The President of the Republic wishes to extend his personal gratitude to Chancellor Murat for allowing the full range of Burgundian political factions to participate in these elections.

The plight of the Burgundian people, not all too dissimilar to the recent hardships of the Aurarians, serves as a warning to governments across the world that would silence the will of the people. Much like the Alliance for the Restoration of the Republic served as a critical entity for the coordination of the efforts to topple the Caudillo and establish a government for the people, the All Burgundian National Congress has worked tirelessly to provide a future for its people. A strong, democratic Bourgogne is in the best interest of not just Gallia but indeed global peace. The time has come for the people of Free Bourgogne to decide their destiny and in that mission the Second Republic stands alongside Free Bourgogne.

The Second Republic is prepared to offer whatever assistance it can to aid in the reconstruction of Bourgogne. Democracy has returned to Gallia and it is all of our responsibilities to ensure that it is kept.

All the best,

It is the true hope of the Polesian People's Republic that plans for elections in the Burgundian People's Republic do not allow former feudal capitalists, other reactionaries and pawns of hostile foreign powers to re-enter public life and positions of influence. The gains of the Burgundian revolution were hard won - they should not be lost easily.

In a civilized nation, Europe, world, there will never be any room for treason of this scope. For recognition of traitors who violently overthrew a preceeding, elected, legitimate, Capitalist or royal government(s).

It is without a doubt that innocent men, women, & children have been murdered to usher in an illegitimate regime that wishes to force a radical, irrational fiscal reality upon its people. Furthermore, we have yet to see that there is an independent third party surveyor there to help keep the peace & avert further likely war crimes. We also remain deeply skeptical that truly fair & free elections can be held there at present.

This regime was built upon innocent bones, blood, & the sold souls of mind boggingly sympathetic foreign powers. The Continental Empire of Justosia will never accept or recognize this regime. Maintaining the preceeding policy of our last Crowned Sovereign Carlos Francisco II. We do however extend a hand of aid & asylum to any who don't wish to try to live under such. In the name of democracy, & peace. Viva Justosia.

Nation States around this great world have an obligation and duty to be a pillar for development of families. While faith is always the foundation of family life - consistent and fair governance is essential for the household.

We hope that the civil participation being encouraged in the Burgundian People’s Republic will include faith based initiatives that support the total well-being of family homes. If our NGO can help in any way to open doors or warm homes for our brothers and sisters in Christ in the Old World we will gladly oblige those who desire light out of the darkness, and truth from beneath the throne of lies.

From: Incargât dal Forest - Foreign Minister, Jacum Sordèl
To: Burgundian People's Republic Foreign Minister or equivalent

If the communist regime is really open to let every part of society take place in free elections, the relations between the Grand Duchy of Furlanìe and Bourgogne might head towards a better future.
Our perplexity, however, remains prominent, and makes the idea of such a positive future seem very unrealistic; will the regime accept only communist-aligned or crooked parties? will the regime have really fair elections? these are questions that need to be answered not by the regime, of which good faith and honesty we can't yet trust, but with time and the appropriate international monitoring.

We echo the sentiments of our comrades in both the Serazinist Republic of Serenierre and the People's Republic of Polesia and wish to state that while we respect and appreciate the sovereignty of the Burgundian People's Republic it is in the interest of the latter to maintain the unity previously provided by the Burgundian National Congress. The BNC has proven itself more then worthy to lead nation through the hardships that it had to endure during its relatively recent existence. Political pluralism is far too often used as a means by reactionary forces to once again establish a foothold that treatens the hard-earned peace and freedom. We will monitor the situation closely, but hold faith in the fact that the Free Burgundian leadership will make the right decisions.

Signed,

Election fever hits the People's Republic!

More Political Parties have been registered in preparation for the coming elections, the Radical Party founded by Congresswoman Sophie Rousseau standing on a policy of " Progressive values and sound economics free from political extremism". And the Burgundian Workers Association standing on a platform of worker's rights and a social reform. So far with the addition of these two parties their are a total of five parties running in this election, The Burgundian People's Party, The Spreckenland National Union,And the Party of Candles long forced underground by the old Ducal regime but now free to operate openly in the People's Republic.

As of yet polls are unable to discern if any one political party is enjoying a lead over their opponents with all indicators being that this election will be a close run thing.

Chairman Murat calls on Chagny Government to release Republican prisoners.

Provisional Chairman Bertrand Murat in a press statement today has called for the release of Republican partisans detained by the Chagny regime. " These men and women have committed no crime, all they have done is dare to stand against oppression, all of these political prisoners should be released from their unlawful imprisonment".

Other News

Culture: All Burgundian National Congress passes bill to drastically increase arts funding. " The Republic must build a new culture for a new world".

Politics: Congressmen come to blows over proposed detente with Chagny.

Free our imprisoned comrades!

Chairman Murat has called on the Chagny Government to release all Republican partisans imprisoned during the 2019 uprising. " These brave men and women languish behind the wire, their only crime is to dare to be free, to fight against the forces of feudal oppression, and that is no crime at all. I call on the Chagny Goverment to free all imprisoned partisans".

The Force Publique seeks volunteers.
Provisional Police Minister Edouard DeSalle is calling on fit and able citizens to enlist in the Force Publique " A new police force for a new nation, one free of the old injustices a truly just and egalitarian organisation for a truly just and egalitarian society". Minister DeSalle has stated that the old Gendarmerie was a force used to defend the capitalist-feudal status quo and served the interests of the wealthy elite rather than the Burgundian proletariat, but the Force Publique will truly defend the interests of the Burgundian people.

Opposition in collusion with Foreign Powers! Election postponed in the name of National Security!

In a shock announcement Provisional Chairman Bertrand Murat announced to the press that several leading members of the other political parties have been arrested on charges of colluding with a as yet unnamed foreign power following a thorougher investigation by the Force Publique. And that to ensure the stability of the nation the upcoming elections are to be postponed indefinitely. The Force Publique and Armée Républicaine Nationale are to be mobilized and martial law is to be declared. All political parties are also to be hereby dissolved and banned in the name of national security, but all loyal members of the All Burgundian National Congress are to keep their seats and remain in government.


See something. Say something.Government urges citizens to remain vigilant.

Provisional Police Minister Edouard DeSalle has called on the Burgundian people to be ever watchful for " undesirable elements within the People's Republic that would seek to undermine all that we have sacrificed, and that any suspicious persons should be immediately reported to the Force Publique.

Official notice of full economic & trade sanctions
The Continental Empire of Justosia can no longer stand idly by while this wonton abuse of human, democratic rights, this henious state of affairs continues. We are now, in the name of the aforementioned, going to use every soft power tool at our disposal to hold this brutal, oppressive, illegitimate regime to account.

Effective immediately our government is issuing intent to place full economic & trade sanctions upon the 'People's' 'Republic' of Bourgogne. In addition we are currently issuing a travel ban & officially designating this rogue regime as a terrorist organization. We implore other civilized nations in Europe to do the same. Viva Justosia.

KANZLERAMT DER VOLKSREPUBLIK OSTMARK

The Volksrepublik Ostmark congratulates the government of the Burgundian People's Republic for enacting the proper measures to defend the nation's sovereignty and the supremacy of the Burgundian national working class in the face of capitalist aggression.

The enemies of the proletariat will not triumph against the united Burgundian people, which has once again demonstrated its iron will by defending the achievements of the revolution and continuing on the path of socialist development and progress.

The People's Republic of Ostmark is willing to increase economic cooperation with the Burgundian People's Republic and defy capitalist sanctions, in the name of proletarian solidarity and in defense of the free proletarian masses against international capitalist lobbies that are seeeking to destabilize the Republic and overthrow the will of the people.

Signed,

Volkskanzler Horst Paul Grasser

Home Office - Public Statement


While we decry the acts of democratization of Western Burgundy via the dissolution of all political parties, we believe the Marxist party in control of the Government has managed to avoid such and cannot approve of such measures as it is counterintuitive of everything we believe in and hold strong beliefs of. While we will not take such brazen and dramatic acts so quickly as The Continental Empire of Justosia has, we have not taken any options off of the table as of yet as the situation continues to develop.

We hope that the Provisional Government will begin to rethink their strategy on national security if that is the issue at hand and are open to dialogue via the proper channels to attempt and stabilize the situation and restore even the most basic of freedoms for the people.

We will be issuing a red travel advisory for our citizens advising them against traveling to the Peoples Republic for the time being, and shall offer to assist in facilitating expediated travel for ODS citizens and staff currently in country that desire to leave.

The Polesian People's Republic stands fully behind our comrade state the Burgundian People's Republic as they continue their fight against reactionary foreign powers. Internal democracy is of no use or value if it can be weaponised by the enemies of socialism to reverse the hard-gotten gains of revolution.

Troops move to Friulian border as tensions rise.

The Southern border is to be fortified and its garrison to be strengthened following the belligerent behaivour of the Grand Duchy, which in addition to moving troops to the border of the People's Republic in a naked show of aggression has also called on other reactionary regimes to deploy monitoring missions against the Burgundian People's Republic. Minister of Defense Paul Reynard has declared " While we do not look for conflict, we will not back down in the face of foreign aggression".

Leading Conspirator confesses to all charges.

One of the many conspirators arrested by the Force Publique Sophie Rousseau has confesses to all charges filed against her, Rousseau former head of the Radical Party has cooperated fully with the authorities and will be formally charged in the next few days.

Government announces Comité pour la Culture publique.

Interior Minister Heinrich Bergmann has unveiled a new government arts program to " invent a truly Burgundian proletariat identity, one not shaped but our feudal-capitalist past but by our brave new socialist future, to make a new world we must have new ideas, new music, new cinema a new culture for a new nation, the past must be exorcised from Bourgogne". As part of the program to usher in a new proletarian culture for Bourgogne the Interior Ministry will also begin assessing the the names of various landmarks and population centres that " no longer have any relevance to the new Bourgogne". Those names that are deemed obsolete and counter-revolutionary will be expunged and replaced with more modern and culturally relevant ones that will decided by the Interior Ministry.

Education Ministry launches "People's History" curriculum.

Bourgogne's past has long been obfuscated by aristocratic propaganda, the Education Ministry seeks to redress this by launching a correct history of the nation, one that does not glorify the wealthy elite and their imperialist conquests but extols the people, the Burgundian proletariat who through their struggles made Bourgogne the great power that it is.

Defense Ministry launches youth movement.

All those loyal Burgundians 11-18 are encouraged to join the Jeune Garde Républicaine, a new youth organisation for those youths looking to do their part of the People's Republic.

Out of pure Christian mercy, we approach your regime state one last time before history, rightly, in every sense of that word, judges you. Reverse your current radical, repressive, suicidal course. You can yet sew the seeds of peace in Europe instead of those of red rape. Viva Justosia.

The People's Republic takes it's place alongside the free nations of the world.

[an excerpt from a statement made by Chairman Murat]

"Today the Burgundian People's Republic has joined the ranks of those nations belonging to the Treaty of Mutual Friendship, Co-operation and Mutual Assistance, better known as the Rurikgrad Pact. This was not a decision that was made likely but I truly believe that our ascension into the Pact is vital for the survival of a free Bourgogne. We stand united with our friends and comrades against the forces of reaction. Bourgogne has once again taken its rightful place on the world stage among its brother-nations and together with our allies in the Rurikgrad Pact we will usher in a new age of prosperity for the people of Bourgogne and indeed all of Gallia-Germania".

Other.
.New name changes cause confusion among some " It will require a small period of readjustment". Say Interior Ministry spokesman.

. Bourgogne's young people flock to the Jeune Garde Républicaine. The future of People's Republic looks to be in safe hands.

. Foreign Minister Aerlene Bouchard announces she is pregnant with first child.
