Ministerial Appointments
Following the recent resignation of Comrades Kuralyov and Andropov from the Defence ministry and Foreign ministry respectively, the Chairman announced the appointment of Comrade ElDorni as Minister of the Exterior and Comrade Calif El Hazzad as the new Commandante of the MR - EP. Both are recent arrivals in Baracăo but have been warmly welcomed and already occupy some of the most senior positions in the nation. While ElDorni was appointed too late to oversee the formation of the Alliance of Free States he will be left to maintain friendly relations with the Republics allies. On the other hand Calif should look forward to leading the attack on Imperialism whenever it shows its ugly head. We congratulate them both.

Return of Veterans
Conrad Cromien, one of the leaders of the Baracăoan revolution and founding member of the NCP, has promised to return to the nation shortly and that when he does, along with the other original revolutionaries, Baracăo will be spurred on to new levels of greatness. In an address made in La Plaza del Revolucion, Comrade Cromien announced,

“Now only weeks away Baracao will make a great leap forward in all levels of Micronationalsim, Economics, Politics, Defence, Culture and the spread of Socialist freedom across micron! plans are in the works at this moment to ensure good comrades from nations near and far will unite to bring a Campaign of freedom and enlightenment.”

Shortly after the speech Comrade RedLiberator arrived back from his trip to the People’s Republic of China. With Cromien promising to return in September and comrade Kuralyov saying he would consider it ‘in a few weeks’ the Central Committee may soon be complete for the first time in months.

Full text of speech:

Greetings friends and associates, I am suggesting for the progress of our nation that we the people of Baracao begin the process of building a model Socialist economy, currently our great leaders are off far and wide gathering first hand information on the status of real life Communist nations.

Comrade Red Liberator is at this very moment on a diplomatic mission in the Peoples Republic of CHina, and soon when he and comrade Kuralyov return, as well when I am able to return from the military we will have a full leadership reunification and start the process of projects to come.

When Baracao was liberated we set a mandate to create a socialist economy but with the process of restructuring and the influences of outside forces we have been routed.

Now only weeks away Baracao will make a great leap forward in all levels of Micronationalsim, Economics, Politics, Defence, Culture and the spread of Socialist freedom across micron! plans are in the works at this moment to ensure good comrades from nations near and far will unite to bring a Campaign of freedom and enlightenment.

Empirialists be warned your days are numbered.

Letter to Castro
Dear Fidel...
Very soon Fidel Castro will be finding a letter on his desk. In between communications from famous heads of state and urgent revolutionary business he will be introduced to the people of Baracăo! The government has dispatched a letter to the famous Cuban revolutionary stating who we are, what we do and our support for the Cuban revolution. Whether Fidel replies is another matter. If he does you can be sure you’ll find out about it.

Oh God...
The Treesian Unorthodox mission has written some chronicles concerning Baracăo. As the author quite frankly doesn’t ‘get’ Treesian Unorthodox we will just give you the chronicles which can be found here and here.

Alliance of Free States
The Republic of Baracăo, Micronation of Pacary and Republic of Aerlig have signed a treaty in Aerlig creating the Alliance of Free States. The alliance allows for mutual defence and aid between the nations and expresses a desire to work together. Based in Baracăo itself, the alliance brings together three powerful micronations and guarantees each security and protection. The treaty represents a high point in Baracăo’s ever growing foreign affairs and shows what can be achieved through cooperation and friendship.

Text of the treaty:

We, the undersigned, recognise the ever-increasing threats to peace and stability in the micronational world and therefore have seen fit to commit ourselves to an alliance of mutual defence and aid. We declare the following in the hope of protecting our own nations and the freedoms of all peoples.

1) All parties recognise each other as independent sovereign states and agree not to violate the sovereignty of member states.

2) All parties agree to allow each other’s citizens access to public discussion boards and websites and declares their desire to learn about the culture of members.

3) All parties agree to a pact of mutual-defence whereby an attack against one member is considered an attack against all members. In the case of an attack by a third party all members agree to defend their allies.

4) All parties agree to not to take part in or aid a third party in any attack or aggressive action against member states.

5) New members to the alliance shall be admitted only with the expressed agreement of the government of every member state.

6) Any member is free to leave the alliance at any time.

7) Alliance business is to be conducted in a forum in a micronation of the members choosing. The forum is to be considered international territory not under the law of any state. Decisions concerning the alliance are to be made here with each member appointing one representative.

8) The mandate of the alliance extends to mutual defence and aid between member states. The alliance shall not interfere in other matters.

9) The terms of this treaty may be modified with the agreement of all member states.

With this we hope to ensure the future security and prosperity of all our nations.

Nicasia later joined the alliance but has now been annexed by the UBR and ceases to exist as a sovereign nation.

Freenesia-Tymaria War
Last Tuesday, elements of the rogue state of Freenesia launched an attack on the Free Republic of Tymaria. Using a weapon designed to flood the forums with graphic pornography, the so-called ‘Fag bomb’ was denoted by Bobby, allegedly without permission from Freenesian leader Locke. What ensued was a rather embarrassing excuse for a war. The bomb failed to cause any real damage, Tymaria didn’t respond and the perpetrator was swiftly expelled. Freenesia then surrendered to Tymaria and joined the Imperium of Menelmacar after quite rightly being called a ‘poisoned chalice’ and refused permission to become a Palatinate in Treesia. While you may have missed the war if you blinked, it did bring about an end to Freenesia and we should all be thankful for it.

Imperialism and Menelmacar
The imperialist nation of Menelmacar has been flexing its muscles this week with Freenesia being ‘eaten’ (as they call swallowing up independent nations), and it is now looking towards bringing the whole ‘Apollo Foundation’ under its control (without apparently consulting anybody who might be using the land). The ‘Imperium’ is growing ever bolder in its designs and makes no secret of its desire to expand. Following on from the article outlawing communism and the communist party in its constitution, the government has been making aggressive moves towards the Leftist Alliance and taking steps to crush internal dissent. It seems that anything which isn’t ‘Apollonian culture’ (your guess is as good as ours) isn’t welcome in the place ‘where freedom reigns’. With the whole establishment against them, those with differing opinions in Menelmacar may have to find ways other than the ballot box to advance their aims.

Babkhan Regent
Grand Vizier Tahmaseb has been appointed Babkhan regent as Shah Ardashir goes of to savour all the excitement of the Channel Islands and England’s south coast. Apart from a threat to ‘hang the government from the lampposts’, things seem to be proceeding quite peacefully – at least as far as that is possible in Babkha. Baracăoans living on the border with Babkha are keeping to themselves for fear of what will happen with ‘the sane one’ away for a week.

'Unity and Brotherhood'
The Secretary-General of Varja has proposed that his nation become a province of Baracăo. Addressing the Central Committee he said he was ready to ‘give Socialism a fair chance’ and presented the ‘Varjan Provincilition Act’ for voting. Varja has recently been put under pressure by Menelmacar and its leader to abandon the socialist path and convert to bourgeois democracy. This move should secure the states future and make sure that it keeps on a strictly red path.

Article I

The Socialist Republic of Varja shall become a province of the Republic of Baracăo. The proposed provincal government would be: Zarathustra Erutirn as Varjan Governor, Comrade Ozan Castro as the Chief of Police, and Comrade Dorni as the local Party Organiser.

Article II

All armed forces shall be surrendered to the nation of Baracăo to do with as the Party sees fit.

Article III

All Varjans would be granted citizenship in Baracăo and the Communist Party of Varja would dissolve into the National Communist Party.

Article IV

Hauptstadt Provinz and Verstärkte Provinz shall be given to the non-profit organisation of the International Forum.
