Gran-Occidentian Military to undergo " Radical Transformation" Caudillo announces.

In a statement today the Caudillo announced that the Gran-Occidentian military will undergo a restructuring process to bring it more in line the militaries of its neighbours. " Gone are the days of the conscript army, todays wars are not fought with bayonets but with rockets and computers. A large standing army is a drain on our nation's resources and it is incredibly unlikely that there will be a land war in Occidentia in any of our lifetimes. Instead we must look to threats further afield and as such must be prepared to fight foes on foreign shores and across great oceans. To this end The Gran-Occidentian military will be changing its current requirements to enlistment ensuring only the best and brightest can ascend to their ranks and also working to downsize and streamline existing units. It is not yet know what effect these new requirements will have on those already enlisted in the military or what the streamlining of the military will entail for our brave servicemen.

Justosia labels Gran-Occidentia " Hostile" in Foreign Ministry bulletin.

The Tarusan vassal state Justosia has labelled our nation as " Hostile" in a recent statement released by their foreign ministry. In the same statement the Justosian state also fails to recognize the nations of Pelagsia and San Jose. This bizarre and inflammatory statement has drawn the ire of several nations with many in Gran-Occidentia calling for the Foreign Ministry to announce political and economic sanctions on the Justosia state.

Calls have grown in the past months for Monterrey to be integrated into the People's State of Gran-Occidentia with many citing the increase in security and prosperity following Gran-Occidentia's intervention in the former mandates latest period of instability. Even Provisional President Duhalde has expressed his support for a plebiscite, so with such support for a plebiscite and unification the future for Monterrey and Gran-Occidentia seem bright.


Gran-Occidentia becomes a Atomic society!

Treaty of friendship signed with Pelasgian People’s Republic!

A historical treaty has been signed between the Pelasgian People's Republic and Our fair nation the People's State of Gran-Occidentia in Propontis. This treaty of friendship and cooperation between our two brother nations is a significant step in Gran-Occidentia taking a more proactive role in world politics. The Pelasgian People's Republic while having adhering to a different political philosophy than the People's State is never the less a resolute ally in the battle against the rise of autocratic neo-imperialism. This treaty of friendship and cooperation also will benefit trade between our nations and also provides our citizens with greater freedom to travel in the Pelasgian People's Republic.

Red-Terror Cells target the Liga Nacional de Redención

Following the violent clashes between rival protests in Puerto Angeles there has been a steady rise in politically motivated violence across Gran-Occidentia's cities with fourteen deaths over the past few days as a result. Many of these deaths where caused when a LNR meeting in Bella Vista was firebombed by red terrorists calling themselves the " Ejército de la Juventud Revolucionaria" who have also claimed responsibility for a spate of similar attacks across the nation. Members of all political parties have decried the violence as un-Occidentian and a threat to social stability and have called on paramilitary groups of all backgrounds to cease all acts of political violence.

The "Bloody Days" continue as election campaigners clash!

Rival campaigners from the Movimiento por la Auténtica Revolución, Frente para un Futuro Democrático and Partido de los Obreros y Campesinos Integralistas clashed today in Pueblo Nuevo. These campaigners accused one another of tearing down posters and vandalizing property belonging to the respective party's. The situation soon escalated when campaigner whose political affiliation is as yet unknown threw a brick injuring another campaigner which lead to a brawl ensuing. This shameful display of public violence was brought to an end by a detachment of the " El Lobo" Internal Security Brigade resulting in a number of persons injured as the rioters resisted arrest.

Latest polls show meteoric rise of Partido de los Obreros y Campesinos Integralistas.

Our latest El Heraldo election polls indicate that at this stage the Left-Integralist Partido de los Obreros y Campesinos Integralistas would have a large enough percentage of the votes needed to form a government with the Sindicato Integralista Nacional and Movimiento por la Auténtica Revolución following closely behind in the polls.

Internal Security Brigades to be stationed in major cities to protect law and order.

In an effort to combat this endemic of political violence El Caudillo has ordered the mobilization of the Internal Security Brigades to all major cities and announced a temporary curfew " To combat this wave of violence that threatens to destroy our society". El Caudillo has also called for calm stating that the mobilization of the Internal Security Brigades and the issuing of curfews " Are a purely temporary measure until law and order is restored and these violent, disruptive elements are brought to heel".

Ortega hits back at protestor!

Otilio González Ortega leader of the POCI and Presidential hopeful was attending a party rally in Santa Juanita when a member of the Frente para un Futuro Democrático a fringe political party espousing the radical ideology of Post-Delagationism emerged from the crowd and flung several eggs at Ortega claiming that Ortega was attempted " to whitewash his past crimes". In response to this attack Ortega swung at the protestor knocking him to the ground with Ortega needing to be restrained by his entourage as the man was dragged away and later taken into custody. Otilio González Ortega has issued a statement " It takes more than an egg to shut me up, next time anyone who wants to put me down might have to try something a little harder, rest assured I am quite fine, although I'll need a new goddamn shirt".

El Caudillo tours the nation.

Our Caudillo has launched his own bid for the election announcing a nation-wide tour of the nation to "Speak and listen to the citizens of Gran-Occidentia". The Caudillo commended the restraint shown by the Internal Security Brigades as they protect our cities from subversive elements and violent rioters. The Caudillo spoke at length at the great strides Gran-Occidentia has made and promised further reforms but also urged for " Patience and caution, There are those Utopians who would promise you everything and give nothing, I beg the people of Gran-Occidentia to make the right choice come the election".

Movimiento por la Auténtica Revolución undergoes leadership change

The Movimiento por la Auténtica Revolución's leader Hugo Acosta Chaparro has stated in a press conference that he intends to resign following a medical diagnosis of lung cancer " I can no longer provide the leadership the MAR deserves and as such am stepping down as party chairman to focus on my health and my family". Chaparro has been the chairman of the MAR for the past thirty years when the socialist party was an illegal terrorist organization. Following the Caudillo's general amnesty and lifting on the ban on rival political parties Chaparro made the transition from revolutionary leader to member of the opposition, however he refused to disavow the past actions of the MAR declaring them legitimate and also refused to rule out the future use of violence. It is not yet known who among the MAR politburo will take on the mantle of party chairman, although political insiders say it is likely either party stalwarts Sierra Guzmán or Genovevo Rivas will succeed him.

Himyar invaded in imperialist aggression!

The former mandates of Al-Magrab and Hajr have been attacked in a despicably naked display of imperialist aggression the combined forces of the Frankish,Tarusan and Scanish empires. This cabal of autocrats have descended on the former mandates eager to usher in a new era of exploitation and colonization. El Caudillo has condemned this latest act of aggression by the Tarusan tsar and his lackeys " The People's State condemns this latest violation of international diplomacy by these autocratic powers hoping to cling to relevance through sheer brutality". The Caudillo has also raised the possibility of enacting further sanctions against the Tarusan Empire and its allies.


Interior Ministry warns of potential fuel shortages

The Interior Ministry has issued a statement warning that due to the ongoing conflict in Himyar global fuel prices may be effected. But citizens have been told not to worry as the government unveiled its latest scheme to begin manufacturing biofuel using our mighty agricultural sector ensuring further shortages will be a thing of the past.


Negotiations break down between government and pro-union soldiers

Talks between the government and elements of the military demanding the right to unionize have stalled with the government refusing to recognize the forming of a union citing it would violate the military's new apolitical stance. Representatives of the soldiers committees have declared that they are prepared to take industrial action should their needs not be met.

Explosion in Ostmark sparks Nuclear panic!

Nations throughout Gallo-Germania are on high alert as reports are coming in of an explosion in a nuclear power plant in Wien Ostmarks capital. So far it seems that while the fire was not in the power plant itself the local fire services have been unable to stop the blaze. However Minister for Energy and Industry Pedro Celestino-Garza has stated that Occidentianos have no cause for concern over our own nuclear plants " The power plants in Ostmark were sadly decrepit and not fit for purpose, a result of the old National-Syndicalist regime, run by party officials and yes men. The Gran-Occidentian power plants however were built to the most exacting of standards and staffed by the very best our nation has to offer, have no fear no such event could ever happen here".


Movimiento por la Auténtica Revolución elects new leader!

The Movimiento por la Auténtica Revolución has elected a new leader ahead of the upcoming elections and the resignation of former chairman Hugo Acosta Chaparro.

Where is El Caudillo?

The Caudillo has cancelled a rally in San Benito citing a temporary illness. The Caudillo has been undertaking a nationwide tour ahead of the election and many have already commented on his increasingly haggard appearance, especially when compared with opposition candidate Otilio González Ortega a man nearly twice his age. The Caudillo has already cancelled or rescheduled a number of public appearances again citing illness as the cause.

Soldiers Committees declare strike! Barricades erected!

The soldiers currently negotiating with the government for the right to unionize have rejected the governments latest demands and have formed a union without government recognition or permissiom. The newly formed Comité Nacional de Soldados Trabajadores has immediately voted in a landslide to take industrial action until they receive official recognition and the government agrees to their demands. So far barricades have been set in a number of military bases across the nation the largest of which being the San Miguel barracks in Puerto Angeles.

" You may have had your homeland stolen from you by the forces of international autocracy but rest assure you have gain a new homeland in Gran-Occidentia. All who suffer under the yoke of oppression, who yearn to be free can find freedom on Gran-Occidentia's golden shores. We have room enough for all and we welcome you as brothers and sisters".


Already tens of thousands of refugees have fled northern Himyar as a result of the invasion by the forces of Tarusa and the Gothic Pact with many fleeing to the nearby nation of Azraq who the People's State of Gran-Occidentia will be provide with humanitarian aid and other essentials to care for those refugees they are protecting within their own territory.

The Caudillo concedes to strikers demands, allows soldiers to unionize!

Our Caudillo has announced that he has entered into talks with the leadership of the Comité Nacional de Soldados Trabajadores declaring that the strikers issue was not with the Gran-Occidentian government but instead with the high command and bureaucrats within the Ministry of Defense and in exchange for the resignations of several members of the nations high command and the elevating of the Committee's leadership to key positions within the military. In exchange the CNST will disarm with its members being allocated new officers. The Comité Nacional de Soldados Trabajadores as part of the negotiations will pay for any damages that occurred. CNST leadership have also spoken to the press "We congratulate the Caudillo for seeing sense and listening to demands, we look forward to serving the people of Gran-Occidentia and commend the military's new democratic and equitable direction".

El Caudillo lambasts Corrientine interference in Tapenagá!

The Caudillo has come out today to combat the vile accusations made by the Corrientine President regarding the referendum in the former mandate of Monterrey where the majority of the population voted freely and fairly to unite with the People's State of Gran-Occidentia. " The cruel slanderous lies being told by Presidente Herrera would be unbecoming of the gutter press let alone a nation's head of state. Monterrey as it was know was a failed state, failed by the European Forum and failed by both Corrientes and Gran-Occidentia as neighbours, it had been allowed to sink into degeneracy and depravity. Now thanks to the tireless efforts of Provisional President Duhalde and the brave men and women of the Gran-Occidentian garrison Regiomontaneros were finally able to walk their streets at night without fear. The Corrientine President dares to label us as acting like Gallo-Germanians as if he is not merely the latest in a long line of hereditary rulers little better than the Tarusan Tsar. And while simultaneously calling for our two nations to come together as brothers he also allows for secessionist agitators like "El Jaguacito" safe haven in Corrientine territory, hardly the act of a friend and brother.

Ultimately President Herrera is simply bitter that the people of Monterrey have chosen a future as citizens of Gran-Occidentia in the province of Tapenagá then as a client state of Corrientes, Senor Herrera claims to be an advocate of democracy of course except when he disagrees with the outcome".

Secessionist terrorists attack Embarcadero!

Secessionist forces in Tapenagá belonging to the " The National Liberation Junta" have attacked the Gran-Occidentian garrison and also several rural localities. However the Gran-Occidentian peace keeping garrison and the Tapenagán national guard have bravely repulsed these attacks and pushed the terrorists out of the urban centre's and back into their lairs in the deepest jungle. Tapenagá's president Leopoldo Duhalde has vowed that law and order will be restored and that this secessionist movement will be defeated and peace restored to the long suffering province.

El Caudillo promised aid for Tapenagá!

Our Caudillo has promised to send all available men and material aid to President Duhalde to aid him and the people of Tapenagá in their struggle against the corrupt bandit warlord known as "El Jaguarcito".

El Caudillo speaks on Tapenagá crisis! Declares Gran-Occidentia is willing to negotiate!

In a press conference today outside the Presidental Palace in Puerto Angeles our Caudillo Enrique Martinez-Roca to discuss the recent statement of the Junta of National Liberation declaring that they were willing to to forgo armed struggle and instead take part in peaceful diplomacy with the People's State of Gran-Occidentia
" The government of Gran-Occidentia one that is dedicated to the democratic process, if this Junta had simply chosen this course of action from the start so much bloodshed could have been avoided. However they sought to use violence and intimidation and in doing so forced us to respond in kind, I am deeply relieved that they have at last seen sense before the conflict could escalate further. Certainly Senor Prats proposal has considerable merit, Monterrey was also a false construct a relic of the colonial era as such I feel it is only right we consign this relic to the pages of history where it belongs. Certainly the Junta's notion of Monterrey was found to be a figment, the people of Embarcadero see themselves as closer to Gran-Occidentia then the inorganic nation of Monterrey. Now of course the issue of a separate state in the east is a different matter entirely. the Estado Libre de Los Altos has I think a deep resonance with many in the east of Tapenega many of whom did not vote for the region to be integrated into Gran-Occidentia. As a nation dedicated to liberty and democracy we would of course welcome a further referendum deciding the future of this region and the possibility of partitioning Tapenagá and Los Altos in the hope that peace and stability can once again return to the Occident". The Caudillo refused to elaborate on the conduct of Gran-Occidentian forces during the conflict or the role that Puerto Angeles played in the conflict only stating " Governor Leopoldo Duhalde was the man in overall command in the region, and instances of excessive violence would have occurred under his command not the central government in Puerto Angeles".

Anti-War protests grip major cities!

In cities throughout the People's State thousands have taken to the streets to protest against the ongoing violence in Tapenagá and the role the People's State was playing in supporting loyalist elements in the region as they battle against the secessionist Junta of National Liberation. The majority of these protests have been organized and lead by the Estudiantes Integralistas por la Libertad who have been vocal in their criticism of the Caudillo's governments perceived lack of social progress.

What is to be done about Gran-Occidentia's wild youth?
Column by Justine Figueroa


It seems to me that ever since the Caudillo came into power our very society has been slowly unravelling. The Caudillo's reforms while certainly revitalizing the economy of Gran-Occidentia but at the cost of weaking the social ties that bind us together. Homosexuality is no legal soon they may be able to get married if the rumours are to be believed, worse still national service was ended and now without the discipline provided by the military our nations youth gorge themselves on new found freedoms and revel in degenerate art and music. Still all their newfound freedoms they still desire more! they protest the army and government! Our nation's youth without action will lead to the downfall of our society as they continue their debauched decadent freedoms. As a mother and a Integralist I despair at my own children who have denounced Integralist, my eldest has even informed my she intends to vote for the Autenticos! Dios but what has become of our once pure and great nation. And perhaps importantly can we ever undo the damage that this reforms have wrought on our nation's youth?


Peace in Tapenagá, plans announced for referendum for partition!

Peace may soon once again return to the troubled province of Tapenagá as plans have been announced to hold a referendum where the question of partitioning Tapenagá between Gran-Occidentia and the new state of Los Altos. It has also been announced in the spirit of Pan-Occidentian friendship the city of Embarcadero is itself to be partitioned between east and west.

The Traitor Duhalde arrested!

The treacherous former governor Leopoldo Duhalde has been apprehended by our security forces, Duhalde was caught attempting to leave the country having embezzled millions of dollars from the Tapenagán treasury. Following an investigation into his conduct as governor of the province of Tapenagá it has been discovered that Leopoldo Duhalde had been using his position to rule as a despot over the the people of Tapenagá engaging in corruption with rampant acts of brutality against the civilian populace conducted by his very own private army of thugs and bandits. However thanks to the tireless efforts of our security forces Duhaldes vicious reign of terror has been brought to an end, with his trial expected to begin shortly in a closed court due to reasons of national security. Aureliano Camacho, a pillar of the local community and hero of the recent crisis has been chosen by the Caudillo as provisional governor until proper elections can be held.


Protests continue demanding troop withdrawal from Tapenagá!

Protests led by the Estudiantes Integralistas por la Libertad continue despite the ceasefire with protestors demanding that the Gran-Occidentian garrison in Embarcadero return home with spokesman Luis Ortega "The continued deployment of the garrison is a direct provocation to the secessionist movement and their presence may inflame tensions, we call on the government in Puerto Angeles to see sense and withdraw the garrison". So far the government has yet to issue a statement regarding this latest wave of protests.

El Caudillo announces election date to be brought ahead!

Today in a shock announcement to the press El Caudillo has declared he intends to bring forward the date of the upcoming elections to the first of August "
The people of Gran-Occidentia have waited long enough for democracy, it would be cruel to deny them further". El Caudillo appeared to be swaying slightly and his speech was somewhat slurred but his office assures us that the Caudillo is in good health and is still incredibly capable of carrying out his duties. The leaders of the opposition party's have been quick to decry this latest decree with Otilio González Ortega leader of the POCI calling the Caudillo " A complete bastard, he acts like a tsar not a Caudillo with his constant decrees and blatant disregard for the nations democratic process that he claims to believe in". Newly elected leader of the Movimiento por la Auténtica Revolución Sierra Guzmán has likewise spoken out against the Caudillo albeit in more measured language " What we see here is the Integralist regime struggling futilely to maintain its grip on power despite the clear lack of a popular mandate, El Caudillo is acting increasingly desperately as he sees his party's support erode following the debacle in Tapenagá". El Caudillo was dismissive of these protests from the opposition " They can bleat and moan all they want, I only care what the people of Gran-Occidentia have to say".

Ortega expands the principles upon Left-Integralism


Otilio González Ortega has spoken today at a rally for the Partido de los Obreros y Campesinos Integralistas where he took the opportunity to expand upon the ideology of "left" Integralism " We are not some kind of deviation of Integralism, We are its future! Hell so called Orthodox Integralism has served us well in the past but in the modern era it is obsolete, the Partido de los Obreros y Campesinos Integralistas is the future of Integralism! Our opponents label us as leftist but this damn sure ain't the case! We aren't a bunch of reds just because we care for the working man! We're Integralists and always will be you hear! So I don't want to hear the term Left-Integralist anymore the POCI aren't leftists we are futurists! Futurist-Integralism is going to bring a brighter day to Gran-Occidentia. Viva Gran-Occidentia!" While this message has been well received by the party faithful it remains to be seen what the wider public think of this change in branding and whether or not they care for this new " Futurist-Integralism".
