    REPUBLICAN PROTESTORS CONDUCT DEMONSTRATION IN STRATHE CITY


    Strathe City, May 17 2021 | A large protest in Strathe City had been started by students and activists who were identified as members of the Reitzmic Republican Movement that aims to overthrow the monarchy and establish a republic instead. During the protest, effigies of the Royal Family and Royalist politicians were burnt while the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" was being played. The Reitzmic Republican Movement as established in 1998 had been quite inactive since the coronation of King George I in 2015. Despite their active political participation before 2015, the movement remained to have few members at around 1,300-2,000.

  • RE: Motion to Repeal the ERF Deployment in Istkalen

    Copala City you say Mr. Tusk, however let me tell you some facts that I had just been informed recently by the Reitzmic Government.

    Recently, an investigation was conducted jointly by the Mi5 and Mi6. The investigation is still going on as of this moment and some clear conclusions have already been drawn along the way. One of this is the fact that the UoS citizens in Bomballey had connections with the Maxwells, yes both of them. The investigation showed that there had been multiple contacts between these two parties, in which one as we know conducted dangerous violent protests. This was the basis for Reitzmag's Government to push for the repeal of the agreement that was deemed unfair by the majority of the Reitzmic population in a poll prior to the end of vote.

    However do not worry as the Reitzmic Parliament is currently drafting a charter for devolution to outline and organize all devolved powers for Copala City.

    Apart from that, I do not understand why there is still anti-Reitzmic sentiment from many members of the European Council despite our efforts in preventing the destruction of Europe should the Istkalenians have been able to pass through Reitzmag. So I hope that you Mr. Tusk and some members of this assembly be more thankful of the actions from the coalition.

    And what war crimes are you even saying Mr. Tusk? First of all, Istkalenians committed the war crimes and not Reitzmics. They tried to breach the border at a surprising scale, and even planned to take over Reitzmag and Vayinaod based on a series of documents recovered from the capital.

  • RE: Motion to Repeal the ERF Deployment in Istkalen

    Councilor Tusk, not only do I find it disappointing that you uncritically voted for a poorly written bill just because of your government's feud with New Hampton, your assertions that Reitzmag is trying to colonize Istkalen is utterly unfounded. My government and I myself had truly hoped that this petty bickering that has long degraded this council would have ended by now, but apparently my expectations of a national government with nukes and influence to constrain their personal feelings when deciding policy that will affect millions of people was too high. I am not the first to say this in the Council, but this is shameful behavior that is beneath the dignity of the people of Europe.

    Secondly Councilor Tusk, this is a repeal, is it not? There is nothing within the provisions of the law passed that required an unanimous vote by this council to repeal. The specific provision that required an unanimous vote was for the Forces, within the prevue of the law, to be withdrawn. Since the law did not specify any standards for the repeal of the law itself, it is reasonable to assume that this law can be repealed by the normal threshold. Of course, who knows? Because now we are stuck with a law that was poorly written and vague in its meaning.

  • RE: The Banishment of the Barringtons

    Not far from a warehouse outside of the City of Moraben


    Vodka was panicking as he was driving away from the CACT police forces that were on his tail. He was heading to the warehouse that the boss uses in Jullien, but as he was about to enter the building he noticed the police were waiting for him to enter. They were well hidden but Vodka and other members of the organization were trained to recognize the signs of police raid very easy, even those that were well planned and made to not be noticeable. How did they know the location of this warehouse? A warehouse that was being used for research purposes. There had to be something that they, the Organization, was not noticing very easily. Somehow the law enforcement agencies of Leagio were holding a ace on their sleeve that was not the current President of the Commonwealth. What that ace was exactly was the question racing through Vodka’s mind as he quickly drove up the Highway that would take him to Fiowa, where he would try and lose the police in the desert of the Territory. In addition, if he remembered correctly according to recent weather forecasts, there was a light sandstorm that was coming that could help him hide.

    He was driving well over the Leagioan speed limit of 75 miles per hour in the highway in his imported tesla that he bought through the free trade with Ritzmag. However, the police were catching up just as they were going just fast as him. One of the police cars chasing him was closing in on him to no doubt do a pit maneuver on him and spin him out of control to the point that he stops to be arrested where he would then be taken into custody. He quickly grabbed his pistol that was in his black coat and aimed the pistol toward the cop car behind him, where he was aiming at the driver of the vehicle through his windshield. He fired and could see that his was hitting the windshield but it was bulletproof. He had completely forgot about. Most Leagioan Cop cars, whether local or CACT, are required to have bulletproof glass on them. Something that was newly introduced about 25 years ago during the beginning of the end of the glory days of the organization. Now they were looking to new avenues of profit and power. With the boss wanting to reach to levels of control that was unimagineable. But they had made an enemy that they never imagine that would eventually bite them in the butt if left alive and that was the current president of this nation.

    Vodka stopped thinking about the past as he focused on the present. Most importantly, the fact that he has CACT chasing after him with also local police lending a hand. The vehicle that he was shooting at earlier was still catching up and was a starting phase of doing a pit maneuver on him. He hit the gas again on the tesla as he started to go even faster. Off in the distance he can see a CACT helicopter flying above him and moving ahead of him as he noticed that besides him and the police, there were no civilian vechiles in the road that. He watched the helicopter up ahead that lowering a rope of some kind below it while being miles ahead of him at the moment. He noticed that at the lower end of the rope or wire that there was something in it that it was tied around. He could not tell exactly what it was but it had to be something. Then as the rope was quickly lower with the package, the Helicopter made a motion towards the other side of the highway until it dropped the rope. He was very confused on what was going on that he did notice that the police cars behind were slowing down and backing away but ensuring that they kept their distance.

    He could not figure out what that helicopter was doing until he got closer to the area that the helicopter was. It was only then did he have some sort of idea of what it was doing. There in the middle of the road was a spike strip placed just for him. This tesla that he bought was actually something that he bought recently with it being transported by Leagioan ship from Copala City then to Leagio itself just before the closing of the Canal to Ritzmag was being fully enforced, which meant that it did not have the needed tires to survive a spike stripe as it was not easy to get in Leagio. Not thinking of a better plan in his head, he hit the gas again assuming that if he just went faster then he would survive the stripe. However that was not the case as all four wheels hit it and the sound of all the tires popping loudly came; He lost control of the vehicle and then………..

    CRASH!

    The car spun out and hit the barrier of the highway with the force of the crash knocking Vodka out cold completely. Not even giving him a chance to regain conscious and use the suicide pill in his coat before he could be arrested.

    The motion was simply illegal as I had already stated in the past debate. So I hereby motion to repeal such.

  • RE: Motion of ERF Deployment in Itskalen

    My fellow councilors, this motion is entirely against a provision of the ERF Act under Section 2 Paragraph 1 that states "The European Relief Force can be deployed into nations post disaster or post conflict at the request of the member nations where operations would be held. The European Relief Force can also deployed during a truce, on condition all parties involved agree." However, as Istkalen is considered a protectorate of Reitzmag and Vayinaod, they shall be the ones to request such operation to be held and not Montenbourg. Therefore, I think that this motion shall be void.

  • RE: The Banishment of the Barringtons

    Outside of Hotel de Luxury, Moraben, State of Jullien, Leagio


    Outside of the hotel that was being monitored by a team of the Leagioan Common Agency of Crime and Terrorism (CACT), the officer in charge of the raid was watching as various vechiles were on stand by in various streets that were within 5 miles of the hotel. No chances were being taken on the possibility that someone of the BO that was inside the Hotel could have even a chance to escape from justice. There were some concerns by various members of CACT on whether or not if the staff of the hotel were in on the crime and were armed. So, with that concern, CACT was able to get a high security threat warrant through a high level Leagio Judge that hears warrants of various types. A high security threat warrant is a warrant in Leagio that allows for the use of Special Strikers to be used in Law Enforcement purposes when there is a clear and present danger in a law enforcement operation that requires military trained individuals. With this warrant, CACT could move in with some relief in knowing that if the situation gets hot then the Special Strikers were on stand by for action not far from the hotel.

    “We’re all set.” Was heard from one of the radio’s.

    “Move in.” Deputy Director Marcus Williams instructed from the center where the operation was being runed from.

    Within seconds, various cameras from body cameras of CACT officers moving into the building in lighting speed. Everything seemed to be going smoothly at first in the first lower floors of the hotel as bystanders in the hotel were escorted out and staff of the hotel were held in protective custody until they were cleared. However, things began to change once the CACT team got up to the fourth floor as the sounds of gun fire could be heard with various individuals in black coats could be seen in the camera’s firing at the team. Screams from bystanders in the floor could be heard. Although, it seemed that there was not as firce fighting that was seen from the warehouse in Vese a while ago but it might have been cause of the element of surprise was being fully used as some of the suspects of the BO had looks of surprise of them as they used their weapons. A few of the members that were firing at CACT were shot dead but most were shot to the point to where they were just unable to resist any movement of arrest; one for example was shot in both of his hands as his was holding a dual set of pistols in them, where the CACT team skillfully aimed for those hands as best as they could.

    Time continued to move forward. In the control room of the operation, there was a feeling of tension in the air that could be cut with a knife as there was concern if there was more members of the BO in the hotel and there might be the chance that they will lose a officer. Some of the terrorist experts in the room were worried if there was a bomb installed in a effort that should a situation like this happen then the bomb will destroy all of the evidence that could be found and take out all the law enforcement agents of CACT in the building. However, so far there was no signs that could be discovered through the body cameras that could even tell them that a bomb had indeed been planted in the building. However, there was still one more floor in the building left for the team to explore and there was some in the room that were guessing that there were additional BO members. At least, this was the assumption that they made. Luckily, as they got to the fifth floor though, there was not as much BO operatives. It was determined that the operatives had chosen the fourth floor as their area of running in the hotel for it provided a meeting room that was constructed by the hotel itself when it was founded decades ago.

    By the end of the raid, it was determined that there was no bomb planted thankfully. All of the BO operatives that were wounded and in custody were being currently being taken to receive medical treatment, where they would be interrogated and facing heavy charges including terrorism. However, there were now questions on the outcome of the raid in the other warehouse that was outside of the city.

  • RE: Amendment to the European Commission Sanctioning Powers Act of 2021

    Firstly, Councilor thank you for telling me your thoughts on this amendments. Though I must correct you on a common mistake that many Europeans make when addressing Ruthenish people. The proper way to address me is Councillor Tony since Odhinazen is not a family name, or if that's too weird you may just call me plainly Tony. Formalities are not something I highly value afterall. Now, to address your criticism.

    Firstly, we have to remember what we are asking of our member-states when we impose region-wide sanctions. It places what normally would be their decision into the hands of the European Union-- a diminishment of a nation's sovereign rights. I therefore think that any addition of complexity to ensure that the sanctions are being used properly and the processes are being properly followed. But with that said, my amendments do little to add to the complexity of the process itself. And I see little reason to claim otherwise.

    You made the claim that the amendment in Section one comes into conflict of other provisions of the law. I am surprised to hear that you made this claim, for the purpose of the amendment is to clarify and support Section I of this law. All that this amendment does is it requires Commissioners to be put on the record that they approve the provisions of the sanctions, which I believe will help make the commission more accountable. I also suspected that some Councilors might raise concern that other Commissioners might be indisposed during the preposition of the sanctions proposal. However my main problem with this line of thinking is this is part of their basic duties as Commissioners. If they cannot be present to discuss sanctions or at least show support of disapproval, then I honestly don't think they are doing their job adequately. Besides, this amendment allows for time for Commissioners to voice their opinion if they are indeed busy with more important matters. This isn't just an extra step, this is to ensure that there is actually a consensus in the Commission before the sanctions move on to this Council. It is not my wish to have another Istkalen Sanction bill made entirely by one Commissioner with nobody besides the author giving any indication to this European Union that they supported it. Because if I am being honest with you Councilor, it does look shadey. But if you wish for me to clarify the amendment so that its more clear about its intention, I am happy to do so.

    As for the second major amendment, I have to correct you Councilor on one thing: not only did I vote for the Istkalen Sanctions, my government sponsored the sanctions that your government proposed. I am honestly surprised that you were not aware of this. This is because Istkalen was a regime that presented a direct and overt threat to Europe and its member-states. This is in contrast to the UNSR, which has shown that they have no intentions (at least at the moment) of attacking Europe's member states. You can make the argument that the government in exile were attacked, but Ruthund recognized the establishment of the UNSR as an internal matter. That is why I would still vote against the UNSR sanctions if it were brought before this chamber today.

    It may be true, Councilor that both sanctions failed because they failed to reach 55%, with the Istkalen sanctions narrowly failing. But I find this point irrelevant to what this amendment is trying to achieve. The point of establishing a supermajority threshold is to ensure that the sanctions are passed with the principles of consensus building in mind and to safeguard future attempts, however distant they might be, of sanctioning unpopular regimes. I want to ensure that should we impose sanction wide sanctions, there is a very good and universal reason to do it. I felt that a supermajority was a good compromise position to take since I understand that consensus is not always possible. As for swift action, the idea of sanctioning a state is anything but swift. It relies on time being on your side, there is certainty quicker ways of taking out a regime councilor. So if swift action is what you desire, then sanctions seem like a strange path to take.

    The foundations of this amendment is the only way I can see this law being saved. As we speak, there are certain members of this chamber who are working to repeal this law altogether. This amendment will address the concerns that I have heard in this chamber so that we can move on with the task of serving the people of Europe.

    NUP SENDS BILL TO REQUIRE MANDATORY MILITARY SERVICE


    Hampton City, May 13 2021 | An NUP MP had submitted a bill to the House of Commons which would require a mandatory military service of 5 years to all men aged 20 and above with some exceptions. This is said to help boost the country's military power and to strengthen the national defense system. However, the bill currently at the committee level, received wide criticism from the Lib Dem and DFP saying that this bill would not help in the country's national development in other areas apart from defense and security.
