Presidents of San Jose,Natal and Tarusan Tsar wounded in bomb blast!

A bomb blast has ripped through the Hotel Metropol in Kremlyov where the royal wedding of Grand Duke Konstantin and Queen Elisabeth was held. At this stage it can be confirmed that President Olivia Harper Poole of Natal and President Jose Constanza of San Jose and the Tsar of Tarusa were all severely injured in the blast. However at this stage no further information has yet been released regarding their condition. As of yet it is not yet know which of the three heads of states where the target for this attack although given preliminary reports it is believed that the bomb exploded in the hotel room of Presidente Constanza who it seems was holding a private meeting with President Poole and the Tsar which would make Constanza the most likely target. At this stage the identity of the bomber and their motive remains unclear.

El Caudillo offers condolences to the families of the injured heads of states.

" It is truly terrible what has occurred in Kremlyov and I and all people of Gran-Occidentia pray for the swift recovery of those injured and my government is prepared to offer whatever assistance we can".

El Caudillo addresses the nation ahead of the election!

In an unscheduled press conference outside the presidential palace in Puerto Angeles El Caudillo spoke to the nation about the election. " Democracy is an novel concept to the people of Gran-Occidentia, I urge the voters to engage in moderation. I understand that for many my governments reforms do not go far enough, but please do not be seduced by the promises of the Futuristas and their mad quest for relentless industrialization or the Autenticos and their obsession with rewriting out history and culture. Please I urge you for the sake of the nation continue to trust in Sindicato Integralista Nacional, the party and I will continue to serve you faithfully as we have since 1941 and God willing will continue to do so". Opposition parties however were quick to denounce this statement with Otilio González Ortega calling it " An abuse of the office of Caudillo, using it to spread his own godamn agenda".

Trade Unions promise " Summer of discontent" if privatization continues.


Liga Nacional de Mineros Integralistas along with other unions have vowed to fight any further selling or downsizing of state owned industries.

[ The following is a live broadcast across all television networks]

A visibly disheveled Caudillo sits behinds a desk, his tie askew and his eyes bloodshot, in his hands he shuffles some sheets of paper.

" My fellow countrymen I am sorry. I did not want this, there are those who say what has transpired was done in my name, it was not. They did this for their own selfish reasons, out of fear and greed. I never wanted to rule as some autocrat I am not the Tsar or the Frankish Emperor all I want is to help the people of Gran-Occidentia, to help and guide them towards the future. I was an Integralist, I do not think I am one anymore. Integralism has failed this country and again, it promised to make us strong to make us great. Instead it has been subverted and abused, transformed by machine men with machine hearts who can only understand hate and fear. I do not think Integralism can recover it is dead, evil men have killed it. But my countrymen do not despair this will pass and the power they have taken from the people will be returned to them. I truly believe that".

At this El Caudillo takes a large gulp from a glass beside him, his words a little slurred now but coherent.

" In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written: "the Kingdom of God is within man" not one man nor a group of men, but in all men. I believe this truly, there is a spark of divine in each and everyone of us, we must embrace this spark and burn away the old world, do away with barriers of class, race and sex, we can build a new world, a better world. By the promise of these things evil men have risen to power, I consider myself one of them. But we-they can will never deliver those promises they free themselves but enslave you the people. I intend to be the last Caudillo of Gran-Occidentia and before I resign this position I will issue one last decree I Enrique Martinez-Roca as President of the People's State and Leader of the Sindicato Integralista Nacional:hereby dissolve the Sindicato Integralista Nacional. For too long now it has held Gran-Occidentia back from the future and enslaved its people.


Goodbye, and goodnight".

[ the following is a live broadcast across all television networks]

Two men and one women sit behind a long table. The first man is shorter then even the woman, dressed in the military uniform of a common soldier, with the red-brown skin that hinted of his indigenous ancestry. Beside sat a man well into his fifties dressed in the open shirt and vest of a common labourer, he looms over his compatriots smoking away with a cigar. Next to him is the woman, dressed in a smart suit a pin in the shape of a red star glinting in the camera, she was the first to speak.

"
People of Gran-Occidentia, My name is Sierra Guzmán, this are my compatriots Otilio González Ortega and Raoul Lopez. Now the reason for this message is that our nation is changing drastically. You have seen Integralism falter, the Caudillo himself has resigned. But rest assured Gran-Occidentia is not without a government. " At this she gestured at the two men next to her" We have in the name of national salvation and liberation have taken on the mantle of government. The times ahead may be hard but rest assured a freer Gran-Occidentia is being born".

At this the small man spoke.

" Soldiers, comrades you have through your courageous actions saved our nation from tyranny. Now I call you to defend it, many of your officers were members of this putsch do not listen to them. listen to the us the government of national salvation and liberation and to your comrades in the Comité Nacional de Soldados Trabajadores. Be alert for anti-government forces, these traitors have been beaten but not yet defeated".

Finally it was the third man's time to speak, he did so between puffs of his cigar

" Now a lot of things are gonna change, they gotta change you hear. This country has a deep rot and this government is going to clean house, make this country a better place to live for everyone. It ain't going to be easy and it sure won't be quick but you, the good people of Gran-Occidentia can trust we are going to make this nation great again".

Government of National Salvation and Liberation formed following electoral chaos!

In what has been an unprecedented series of events for the People's State of Gran-Occidentia.The national elections were brutally subverted by elements of the Brigadas de Seguridad Interna which quickly spiraled out of control leading to military uprisings across the nation and the resignation of El Caudillo, the collapse of the the Sindicato Integralista Nacional and the creation of a new emergency government. This new "Government of National Salvation and Liberation" has promised to stabilize and reform the nation and that once the situation is resolved elections will resume at a later date. However until then a state of emergency has been declared across the nation and a nightly curfew announced. The new emergency government has called for patience and restraint from the people of Gran-Occidentia in these unprecedented times.

Integralist putsch plotters arrested!

Following the failed anti-democratic putsch by the members of the governments the majority of the plotters have been arrested and detained and are currently awaiting trial.

Government disbands Internal Security Brigades!

Co-Chairperson of the Government of National Salvation and Liberation Otilio Ortega has announced that the Internal Security Brigades and their associated agencies. Support staff and clerical personnel are to be integrated into the wider civil services following a strict vetting process, those Brigadistas who served in active duty are to transferred to the newly formed National Labour Service where Co-Chairperson Ortega has assured the press " Those who formerly served in the Brigades shall learn the redemptive power of hard labour". The National Labour Service will be available for all Occidentians to join and will work on public works projects and infrastructure in service to the People's State. However Co-Chairperson Ortega has clarified that ordinary citizens will not be working alongside criminals such as the Brigadistas who instead will be assigned to "Special Labour Detachments" where they can be monitored and helped to rehabilitate themselves and reenter society.

Co-Chairperson Sierra Guzmán announces" Transformative economic policies"!

Co-Chairperson Guzmán has announced to the press about the governments plan to radically transform the Gran-Occidentian economy. Guzmán has declared" While the Caudillo's economic reforms where a step in the right direction they were simply too conservative to truly transform the economic and break up the state run corporations and give the power of the economy back to the people of Gran-Occidentia. The new government will do just that, break up the old corporations that are no longer fit for purpose and give local communities the power to control their own fates and make their way in the world". Guzmán has also hinted at the possible creation of a secondary floating currency to help alleviate the People's State economic woes and aid in encouraging foreign investment. However Guzmán was quick to declare that certain industries would remain state run chiefly the coal and gas fields and nuclear power plants.
