Barracks Mutiny Crushed by Government Forces
You must be registered for see images
Government forces were mobilized in the city of Rio Bravo following the discovery of a conspiracy to other-throw the legitimate government of the Republic led by a group of officers belonging to the cities garrison along with cadets from the nearby San Carlos Military Academy. Thanks in part to the quick thinking and heroic actions of one Colonel Augusto Ramirez-Ortega of the fourth Artillery regiment who remained loyal to the central government, Ramriez-Ortega was able to quickly bring about an end to the revolt when he ordered his men to fire upon buildings where the conspirators were hiding bring about their swift surrender with relatively small loss of life and damage to property. Loyal army units have been mobilized and are now in total control of the city with the current garrison being disarmed and confined to barracks pending a full investigation to find out how far these dangerous anti-government sentiments have corrupted the Rio Bravo garrison.

The government of the United States of Corrientes strongly condemns conspirators for their evil ways wishing to see a complete destruction of the constitutional status quo of Gran-Occidentia and of our sub-continent as a whole and congratulates the government of the Republic led by his excellency, President Victoriano Grau for their victory in the face of adversity. The Union remains a trustworthy and close partner of the Republic of Gran-Occidentia in political and military matters and will not suffer threats to the constitutional and political status quo of our neighbouring sister republic nor will it allow such groups activate from it's territory against Rio Bravo.

The Union stands behind the government in Gran-Occidentia in full support against such threats coming from the interior of the nation and we hope that the rule of law and peace and prosperity will always reign over the Aurosphere.

The Most Serene Order of the Knights of the Lands of St. Joseph congratulates the government of Gran-Occidentia in their successful efforts to preserve peace in Rio Bravo with minimal loss of life, especially of civilian life, and averting a potentially bloody military coup and devastating civil war. That being said, we gently remind the government to not engage in acts of revenge or retribution during the course of their investigation, for that is not what the Savior has taught us in the holy scripture. Mercy and compassion instead brings the grace of the Lord upon all, and will contribute to a level-headed investigation that will discover the root causes of discontent within Gran-Occidentia and address them. This will surely bring further peace, prosperity, and partnership to the people and lands of Gran-Occidentia, and the Knights will pray for such.

We remain, Brothers and Sisters in Christ the Liberator,
Knight Chancellor Orlando Blanco
Knight Commander of Foreign Affairs

National Museum unveils new exhibit " The Treasures of T'ho"
You must be registered for see images

The Gran-Occidentian National Museum has opened a brand new exhibit, full of treasures from our nations pre-colonial past discovered in the city of T'ho once thought a to be a mere fable but was discovered by the Grossmann-Villa expedition which dove deep into the heart of the jungles of the interior in search of the lost city. The 1918 expedition returned to Rio Bravo triumphant and with a trove of artifacts that chief curator Victoriano Gonzalez-Diaz has called" unprecedented in their cultural and historic value". The Treasures of T'ho will be in National Museum for one month before it begins its travel around the world where it will fascinate and delight uncounted people for years to come.

Oil struck in Tierra del Sol!

A farmer in Tierra del Sol has made the discovery of a lifetime while digging a well on his ranch, it is not yet known the sheer size of the deposit found however it seems that this sleepy part of Gran-Occidentia has suddenly attracted the attention of the world. The Minister of the Interior Abelardo Flores however refused to state whether the deposit would be nationalized or sold to a private buyer. If more deposits are found it could fundamentally change the economy and society of one of the poorest and underdeveloped regions in the country.

Government Minister caught inflagrante with three tango dancers and a pound of cocaine.

Minister for Tourism Jose Zedillo has been caught committing lewd acts with several partners when police where called to an address in the International Quarter of Puerto Angeles following a noise complaint from neighbours. The Minister has not yet spoken to the press regarding this matter.

Presidente Victoriano Grau launches " Anti-Bandit campaign"

Presidente Grau has addressed the recent spate of bandit attacks in the province of Ixhuatán declaring the launch of a campaign by the federal government with coordination with local provincial forces to " Eradicate the scourge of banditry and anti-government elements in the region". When asked about the validity of the rumours of mass defection in the military, Grau vehemently denied that these rumours are in anyway true calling them" lies peddled by anti-government agitators".

Colonel Augusto Ramirez-Ortega, the hero who's decisive leadership proved invaluable in crushing the anti-republican mutiny in Rio Bravo, has been appointed leader of the new anti-bandit taskforce. Ramirez-Ortega is reportedly confident that this new campaign will finally bring the scourge of banditry in Ixhuatán to an end.



Trade union's threaten industrial action over railway privatization


The Federación Nacional de Trabajadores Ferroviarios one of the nation's largest trade unions had threatened to take industrial action over the proposed sale of the Celestún-Rio Bravo line. The rail line connects the provinces of Tierra del Sol to the capital of Rio Bravo, the line has fallen into disuse and currently only runs three times a week. However with the discovery of oil in Tierra del Sol it was expected that the railway line and other infrastructure would be improved and modernized. However Minister of primary resources Ricardo Guisman has stated his intention to sell the beleaguered rail line to foreign interests.

Representatives of the FNTF have stated that should the sale go ahead they will launch an immediate nation wide general strike with several other unions also expressing messages of solidarity with the rail workers. Presidente Grau has declared that any such strike action would be illegal and those taking part would face the full might of the Gran-Occidentian government and legal system.

We commend the government of Gran Occidentia with stopping the uprising, and hope for a long-term solution that will satisfy everyone.

I would also like to mention that the Eiffellandian musea are eager to host the exhibit "The Treasures of T'ho".

We are very much interested in exploiting, or helping to exploit, the oil deposit found in Tierra del Sol. Would there be a possibility for that? We are also willing to contribute to the development of Tierra del Sol.

RED REBELS SEIZE CITY.
Government vows to " Restore law and order" and to " Crush the Red Saboteurs".

Breaking news from the city of Progreso, the quiet lakeside city, famous for its natural beauty has erupted into violence following the local Guardia Federals attempt to halt an illegal political demonstration in the cities main square, however despite the best efforts of our nation's security services the rioters no doubt led and organised by the Partido Revolucionario Auténtico. While the mob has seized large parts of the city however sources within the military state that the city shall soon be liberated from the tyranny of the Auténtico movement.



Anti-Bandit Campaign continues in Ixhuatán.


Colonel Augusto Ramirez-Ortega's anti-bandit taskforce has driven the criminal elements overrunning the great province of Ixhuatán back into the jungles and mountains where they hope to hide from justice. But have no fear good people of Gran-Occidentia for our brave fighting men will soon triumph over these renegades and bring them to face the justice they deserve for their many crimes. Many of these bandits claim allegiance to the Sindicato Integralista Nacional a banned political movement that calls for the overthrow of the Republic and the establishment of " Christian-Legionary State". Luckily our soldiers will prevail and save the nation from such a barbarous fate.

With some concern we observe the developments in Gran-Occidentia that may reflect a greater danger to civilization in Westernesse than just a localized rebellion. If the city of Progreso can not be retaken soon and Anarchy and lawlessness rule supreme, it would reflect badly upon the reliability of Gran-Occidentia as regional partner. As Implarian financial investments as well as political interests are at stake, we wish to inquire about the possibility of the government of Gran-Occidentia to give guarantees as to the security of Implarian investments and, should they prove unable to give such guarantees, extend our hand as good neighbors and offer our support in restoring order to the West.

Signed
The President of the Implarian Federation

RESPECTING


THE RED REBELLION IN THE GRANDE OCCIDENTALE

PUBLISHED BY THE


SECRÉTRAIRE d’ÉTAT DES AFFAIRES ÉTRANGÈRES
ROYAUME DES PETITS-PAYS


FROM M. JACQUES LEFEBVRE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS,

TO HIS EXCELLENCY THE PRESIDENT OF LA GRANDE OCCIDENTALE,
MY HONOURABLE MISTER VICTORIANO GRAU,
In a display of our utmost respect and regard for the Grand Occident Republic, and for which the Peoples of this experiment in democracy call home, we wish to display our kind acknowledgment of the troubles that plague your lands. There appears to be a resurgence of the red menace which originally appeared among the Himyarites and appears to be a troubling case among those most impoverished or otherwise uncivilized.

As our understanding of the Grand Occidental Union is, your ruling class clearly tracks its linage to the civilized albeit often dramatic Aurarian Republicans. While these Aurarians have not offered aid to your people as they deal with the red menace, they appear more than willing to gift your flourishing nation to rebels which parade in false chains only wishing to seize the blood of your most successful people.

You see sire, our nations and our peoples are not so different in that they only wish for the best to get their fair share. As such, we can offer you our support in favor of the Grau Administration against the red menace. How we can be of service to the cause of all that is righteous is something that has troubled His Majesty the King and the Cardinal Dubois.

After much deliberation, kindly accept 1,000 rifles and 100 Gaulois men that can offer training and expertise. These men will also work to secure a strong and continued rapport between the Petits-Pays and Gran-Occidentia.

We must ask that you promptly accept this kind gift and that our generosity not be overlooked. Should you have concern I am most available as your liaison between yourself and his Imperial Majesty as


Your most humble and obedience servant.


JACQUES LEFEBVRE.

OFFICE OF THE FOREIGN SECRETARY - STATEMENT

The people of Sylvania are shocked at this act of barbarity at the hands of the so called revolutionaries. We hope that the government will act swiftly and we echo the offers of our friends in the small lands to provide material support and soldiers to bolster the forces of your government. Crushing these rebels quickly is most important and we strongly suggest that your government accept our help and the help of our friends in the old world. Reds will not be welcome in Westernesse.

Foreign Secretary of the State Department.

Freedom of ideas is an essential building block of Democracy, but a democracy should defend itself against forces that seek to abolish it. In line with the governments of Petits-Pays and Sylvania, Eiffelland offers material support and soldiers to fight off the revolutionaries.
