The Caudillo calls for Gran-Occidentia to aid our fellow Christians in Pannonia

Our Caudillo Ignacio Reyes-Carranza has spoken at a Sindicato Integralista Nacional rally earlier today, in an impassioned speech calling for the people of Gran-Occidentia to send all possible aid to those peoples in the old world currently struggling for freedom. The Caudillo has declared that Gran-Occidentia will begin sending humanitarian aid to those newly independent nations emerging from the old nation of Bajorország.


Additional Internal Security Brigades to be sent to border region

Today the newly formed " Valientes" and " El Lobo" Internal Security Brigades are to be sent south towards the disputed border region of the Selva following a violent altercation near Amatenango de la Frontera between loyal Gran-Occidentian citizens and Correntine agitators. These brigades will be sent to reinforce those Gran-Occidentian forces already protecting the region.

Correntine Governor-General killed in car bombing!

At seven o'clock this morning the streets of Embarcadero where rocked by an explosion caused by a car bombed planted by parties as yet unknown although rogue nationalist elements are believed to be responsible. Governor-General Eduardo Schaerer was fatally wounded and several more bystanders have also been injured, some critically. Governor-General Leopoldo Duhalde has called for a state of emergency to be called and has formally requested additional resources and manpower from Gran-Occidentia to help prevent further acts of violence in Monterrey.

Governor-General Duhalde has long called for the local security forces in Monterrey to be bolstered in the face of increasing activity by bandits and local drug cartels who often take refuge in mountains and highlands of the mandate.

Party officials found guilty of corruption.

Four Sindicato Integralista Nacional were found guilty today in a party court earlier today, the four senior party officials have been found to have been embezzling funds for years before being caught by the tireless work of the Servicio de Seguridad Nacional in a noble effort to rid the party and the nation of corruption and decadence. The four guilty men are have been sentenced and are due to be hung at dawn tomorrow.

Gran-Occidentia leads the way to the future for all of Occidentia

In a historic meeting our Caudillo Ignacio Reyes-Carranza has met with José Constanza President of the Archipelagic Republic of San Jose. The two leaders came together in the spirit of Pan-Occidentian friendship and against the corrupting influence of foreign interventionism with the People's State of Gran-Occidentia joining the Hermandad de Naciones Occidentales and agreeing to the Herrera-Constanza Doctrine. With this bold new step Gran-Occidentia shows to the peoples of Occidentia and the wider world that it will no longer tolerant the predatory interests of the foreign powers to corrupt the good people of Gran-Occidentia. While of course our great Integralist state has many differences with our neighbouring countries who follow their own base ideologies they are at least all brother Occidentians.

Monterrey descends into anarchy

The troubled mandate of Monterrey has continued its collapse into further violence as degenerate criminal elements continue to assault the state with only the heroic actions of Governor-General Leopoldo Duhalde and those members of the security forces and brave volunteers who remain loyal to the state saving the mandate from collapsing entirely into an orgy of bloodshed. Governor-General Duhalde reports that loyalist forces have retaken much of the capital Embarcadero from the insurrectionists but cannot press further without support from the those nations that currently guarantee the mandates protection.

The Caudillo's announcement has sent shockwaves throughout the political establishment as Reyes-Carranza who ascended to the presidency following the death of the previous Caudillo Victoriano de La Barra will become the only Caudillo to leave the office. The Caudillo in addition to announcing his retire has also named his successor. The current economic minister Enrique Martinez-Roca has been named as the new Caudillo in waiting. Roca has been responsible for the series of reforms currenting ushering a new age of prosperity for the people of Gran-Occidentia.

Who is Enrique Martinez-Roca, our next Caudillo?

Martinez-Roca has experienced a meteoric rise, first as a party official, then as a aide to the former economic minister and now, the soon to be President of Gran-Occidentia. Roca was born to a middle class family in Puero Angeles and now at the age of forty will be the youngest man to hold office in Gran-Occidentia.

Enrique Martinez-Roca swore in as President! Viva el Caudillo!

Today in a historic ceremony at the Presidential palace in Puerto Angeles our new Caudillo was officially swore in by the great man himself Ignacio Reyes-Carranza. The new Caudillo was presented by a grand parade of our valiant armed forces through the capital with the brave men who served in Monterrey taking pride of place at the head of the column.


Tensions worsen in the old world.

Following the collapse of Pannonia the nations of Gallia-Germania have been at one-anothers throat with the free people's of Bourdignie, Zaran and Bécs-Altstadter yearning to break free of their imperialist oppressors. However hopes for peace in the old world have been shattered by the Holy Frankish Empire in a most unchristian act of naked aggression invading the nation of Bourdignie. To make a bad situation worse the mad Tsar in Tarausa and his imperialist running dogs are also seeking to crush the people's of Zara. We pray that sense and decency prevails and that peace can once again be found in the old world.


Military placed on high alert!

Our brave military has been placed on high alert following the recent developments in the Bourdigne. However the good citizens of Gran-Occidentia have nothing to fear.

Caudillo apologizes for previous regime's excesses and announces further freedoms.

What follows is an excerpt from the Caudillo's speech at the Hall of Glorious Martyrs in Puerto Angeles.

" Integralism has made this country strong, it has made this country great, it has freed us from the corrupt rule of the old regime's of the past. We owe a huge debt to those men who came before us, those great men who fought unceasingly to save our nation and our people. But we must also accept that they were just men...and like men they made mistakes. Their intentions were pure and noble and their cause was just but through excessive zeal a great many wrongs were committed and indeed still are being committed by the state to this day. And as Integralists we look to these past failings and not continue to ignore them but to face them and to learn and evolve from our past mistakes and look to the future. In the past there was the saying " The Caudillo is always right". This is wrong, neither myself on any of my predecessors are infallible and never where. To this end I will be extending a total amnesty for all political prisoners currently held in Gran-Occidentia provided they denounce violence against the state in all forms and will be relaxing certain restrictions regarding free speech and journalism. This efforts were put in place to keep the nation pure and free from corruption. They are not needed now.

The world is changing, and to survive Integralism and Gran-Occidentia must change too, or else be swept aside by the tide of history.

Viva Gran Occidentia."

We commend the Caudillo for extending a total amnesty for Gran-Occidentia's political prisoners and relaxing restrictions on free speech and journalism. In the end, a country is better-off when journalists get the room to report on issues that the government overlooks. Even when acting with the best intentions, governments can make mistakes, and then it needs journalists to point at those mistakes.

You are now listening to the international service of the CRGO
Broadcasting live from Puerto Angeles, the People's State of Gran-Occidentia
Joaquín Amaro: Buenos Dias from Puerto Angeles, you are listening to late night with Joaquín and I am you're marvelous host, the one the only Joaquín Amaro here to guide you through the early hours and into the dawn with some music, news and of course input from you wonderful people. And now before we continue our nights broadcasting, the news.

" This is the 12:00 news broadcast, with all the most current affairs from Gran-Occidentia and the world. Today in Puerto Angeles the Caudillo announced the construction of a series of infrastructural improvements across the nation to revitalize the economy and provide work for the nation's unemployed. Membership in the Sindicato Integralista Nacional is at its highest in fifteen years, with membership among our youngest citizens up 75%, it would appear that Gran-Occidentia has a bright future in front of it with such dedicated young people ready to serve. In foreign news there are increased calls in Monterrey for a referendum about the future of the mandate with many in the territory calling for unification with Gran-Occidentia. In Eiffelland the King has fired the head of the current coalition and appointed former Minister Philipp Neubauer as Kabinettserkunder".

Joaquín Amaro: And now that's done its time for some music from the heart of Gran-Occidentia. Here's an old favourite to get us going.


And now we're in the groove here's a little song from a hot new bad out of Puerto Angeles, Los Pumas with Todo Negro and the Camacho Brothers

El Caudillo unveils reforms for Gran-Occidentia's women

" It is shameful that the rights of women of Gran-Occidentia have languished behind their brothers. Our women folk deserve more, they deserve to take their rightful place alongside our nation's men in the workforce and in should they choose, our military. To this end I and the National Integralist Union will be amending the National Constitution and launching a series of bills designed to get women into the workplace and higher education so that Gran-Occidentia can truly become a land of freedom for all its citizens"!

The Caudillo spoke to the press today in Puerto Angeles about his plans for further societal reforms including the massive expansion of the National Integralist Union's Women's Section which will take on a greater role in society and work towards getting more women in employment and promoting women to higher positions within the party itself.


Student organizations call for greater political freedoms

The youth organization Estudiantes Integralistas por la Libertad have called on the Caudillo to provide greater political freedoms. The National Integralist Union has not issued a statement.

Gran-Occidentia is ready for democracy says Caudillo!

In a shocking announcement outside of the Palace of the Supreme Council of Integralism the Caudillo Enrique Martinez-Roca has announced that he will be lifting the ban on the formation of political parties " There once was a time where it was necessary that the Sindicato Integralista Nacional prohibit divisive political movements until the Gran-Occidentia had gone through the nessceary period of political tutelage and purification, that time has now come". The Caudillo has also given permission for those members of the Sindicato Integralista Nacional who wish to create their own political organizations will be free to do so, but will have to renounce their party membership.

The Caudillo has announced that there will be free and fair elections within the next three years and will be open to any and all political parties that are formed. News of this announcement has spread throughout the nation drawing both condemnation and praise from those within the party and wider society.

Anti-Corruption Committee formed!

In an effort to combat corrupting elements within the apparatus of our government the Caudillo has formed a special Anti-Corruption Committee to be headed by the new Police Minister Hipolito Calles who has he will not unrest until the state is free of corruption from all facets of society.

Terror rocks Gran-Occidentia!

"Our fair nation has been rocked by a series of violent attacks leaving scores dead or wounded, many of these acts of barbarism have been the work of vile terrorists seeking to destroy our beloved country from within whether they belong to the right or the left such violence has no place in a decent godly society like ours." The Caudillo spoke has broken his silence of the spate of political violence that has torn through Gran-Occidentia in recent weeks. Among those killed or wounded in this latest outbreak of terrorism are Defense Minister Manuel Pena, Agricultural Minister Sancho Vega and Police Commissioner for Puerto Angeles Maximino Camacho. The Caudillo has stated he and his government will remain resolute in their mission to transform Gran-Occidentia regardless from opposition from radical's on either side of the political spectrum.


Sindicato Integralista Nacional splits! New Parties emerge!

Following the Caudillo's announcement lifting the ban on political parties has seen the Sindicato Integralista Nacional itself split with members of the once united party forming the Partido de los Obreros y Campesinos Integralistas and Liga Nacional de Redención from the SIN's left and right wings respectively, with the majority of the party's centre remaining.

Of course it remains to be seen where the Gran-Occidentian people's support lies and which party they might end up voting for in the promised elections.

The Caudillo apologizes to Indigenous for "Occidentismo" policies.

The Caudillo has issued an apology to the indigenous people's of Gran-Occidentia who were subject to the policy of Occidentismo where their native languages where prohibited and their children put in the care of the state. While the Occidentismo was brought to the end by the previous Caudillo Ignacio Reyes-Carranza no formal apology has been issued until today " Our forebears did what they felt was best for Gran-Occidentia, we can now see they were wrong, and so were their actions, great sins have been committed in the names of Integralism and for those sins I issue a most heartfelt apology". The Liga de Integralistas Indígenas has commended the Caudillo on his statesmanship and unwavering support for the indigenous peoples of Gran-Occidentia.

Gran-Occidentia will harness the power of the Atom!

Minister for Energy and Industry Pedro Celestino-Garza has announced the creation of Gran-Occidentia's atomic energy program promising to " Light a path to the future for all Gran-Occidentians, power for the people by the people". The Minister explained that bountiful uranium deposits exist within Gran-Occidentia and that these recently discovered deposits will ensure that our fair nation will no longer be reliant on foreign powers for it's energy needs. When asked when the government would begin construction on any power plants and supporting infrastructure the Minister declined to answer.


Joint WOTO naval exercise a resounding success!

Naval exercises held by elements of the fleets of Gran-Occidentia, San José and Natal off the coast of the islands of Santa Ana and Santa Monica were a great success and showed the strength of the spirit of international brotherhood that is typical of the brother-nations of the Westernesse-Occidentia Treaty Organization. These exercises where concurrent with the naked sabre rattling of the Tarusan Empire and its lackey's the Holy Frankish Empire and the Kingdom of Justosia who partook in their own naval exercises off the coast of the Queen Emma Isles which no doubt took part without the spirit of brotherhood held by the men of the Occidentian fleets.

Foreign Ministry General Dispatch

It is regrettable. The lack of competence & honesty in western reporting. Thankfully for you, a lecture. We have not been the Kingdom of Justosia in some years now. Our official name is El Continental Imperio de Justosia. Furthermore, our joint naval exercise with our ally Tarusa took place off our own coast of Barceltia, that fleet then moved on to the Queen Emma Isles. They were a spectacular success. Unlike your reporting. Viva Justosia.

Gran-Occidentia to legalize homosexuality!

In an historic moment for our nation the Caudillo has pushed a bill through the Supreme Integralist Council legalizing homosexuality in Gran-Occidentia and granting civil partnerships the same rights under the law as marriage between a man and a woman. Public opinion was mixed on the streets of Puerto Angeles with most being generally positive about this latest reform but conservative elements of society have decried it as going against Gran-Occidentia's" Christian moral character". The Caudillo has also formed the Comité integralista para el progreso homosexual with the express purpose of ensuring all Occidentian citizens are treated equally as is their right.

Student protests demand election date!

In major cities across Gran-Occidentia protestorss led by the Estudiantes Integralistas por la Libertad have taken to the streets demanding that the Caudillo fulfil his promise of free and fair elections and announce a date when the elections will take place. Calling the Caudillo's democratic reforms " cowardly attempts at appeasement" EIL spokesperson Gloria Marquez stated that the protestors where prepared to continue their actions until their demands are met. The government has not yet issued a statement regarding this latest spate of protests.
