Recent articles on the rising tensions in the southern boroughs Newest Proposal Passes Coalition 19 July 2020 Aven Cordaka A decision has been made today regarding the national status of the Eskeok National Rainforest located in southern Eskeocha. For the past year, a debate has arisen regarding the rights of locals to use trees from the rainforest as a source of local lumber. The harvesting of Eskeok Rainforest trees began last November, when natives of the borough Mastikan began cutting down trees in the eastern sections of the rainforest. This upset many natives and environmental rights supporters, prompting action by the Mastikan borough board. A decision was made in a split vote, 12-10, to allow the use of lumber from the rainforest as a local lumber source, passing in January of this year. South Eskeocha and Cranarie Passage South, two other boroughs that share portions of the rainforest, disputed this decision by Mastikan, claiming Mastikan has no right to make the decision without consultation with the other boroughs since they also share territory. Mastikan disagreed with this claim, stating that each borough is responsible for their own region of the forest. With no eminent solution to the rainforest dispute, as it has grown to be called, South Eskeocha submitted a proposal to the Frontier Coalition, Eskeocha’s national governing body, to declare the rainforest a national monument of heritage. Proposals on this level are infrequent, with only approximately twelve sent to the coalition annually, as Eskeocha’s main governance is delegated to the boroughs. This proposal remained on the floor for six months, lasting from February to July, when, at 4:46pm today, a law was officially passed recognizing the Eskeok National Rainforest as a Monument of Heritage, joining the ranks of the Ontok Glacier and Mt. Caskada. Updates on the story, including details of the proposal and information on Monuments of Heritage will be found on our website, nationalpost.esk . Violence Rises in the Southern Boroughs 20 July 2020 Aven Cordaka Rioting broke out in the city of Jenifer in early hours this morning by employees of the Jenifer Lumber Supply Co. and Eskeocha Timber. Three people were killed in the event, a rare occurrence for Eskeocha. The disturbance is believed to be in direct response to the Frontier Coalition’s passing of the proposal to declare the Eskeok National Rainforest a national monument of heritage, preventing it from being used as a source for timber by lumber supply companies. The two companies whose employees were greatly involved in the riot are significantly impacted by this new law, as the borough board of Mastikan had dispensed permits to multiple companies including these two to begin cutting down wood in the forest in October of last year. Borough Captain Tomas Carapacho of Mastikan released a statement on the riot from the Borough seat in Mastikan city, declaring, “The events of this morning are very unfortunate. Here at the borough seat, the hearts of the board go out to the families of those who passed. We do not condone riots or senseless violence in Mastikan, yet we must also recognize the cause for which these men and women are speaking up. This decision by the Frontier Coalition to prevent our borough from harvesting timber is an infringement on our rights as a borough. Our nation’s charter of confederacy gives explicit rights to the boroughs to govern their land, and this right has been violated. We will not rest until we have been returned our right to collect our lumber where we choose.” South Eskeocha Borough Captain Elder Morokok responded, condemning the statements of Carapacho, calling them “Uninformed” and “Promoting violence and unrest in our nation.” Borough Captain Edder Ediani of Cranarie Passage South and Eskeocha Frontier Captain Milo Yuskwag have yet to respond. Updates on the story, including arrest information and the identities of the three deceased will be found on our website, nationalpost.esk. Fighting Breaks Out in the South 21 July 2020 Aven Cordaka Tensions have begun to rise today in southern Eskeocha as fighting has begun between the boroughs of Mastikan and South Eskeocha. On the border of the two boroughs and of the Eskeok National Rainforest, many citizens of the two nations began brawling violently, leaving twenty-two people severely injured. No one was killed in the fighting. The fighting lasted for almost an hour and a half, as police were hesitant to break anyone up using firearms, as they feared it could lead to citizens beginning to use their hunting weapons for this cause in the future. This is not the first incident of violence as a result of the new lumber laws, as riots broke out in Jenifer a short time ago. Furious over the recent matters involving the restriction of harvesting lumber in the Eskeok National Rainforest, the two boroughs have been targeting each other for the past two weeks politically and in the media, and to this point, the issue has expanded further, becoming a matter of government involvement in the boroughs. Several boroughs including Cranarie Passage South, Passage’s End, and Abasol Bay have declared their support for South Eskeocha, believing the government should play a larger role in national politics, while Harinak, White Tip, and Tokoway have shown support for Mastikan and believe that governing power should remain primarily in the hands of the boroughs. This has increased a political divide in the nation, causing many to fear that the country may introduce political parties for the first time in its 55 year history. Frontier Captain Milo Yuskwag spoke publicly on the matter, stating, “We in the capital condemn the violence we have seen from our brothers and sisters. This is an irresponsible reaction to our lawmaking and shines a bad light on our nation in the eyes of world leaders. We ask that this fighting stops, and that you reconsider how you chose to protest, perhaps by choosing more peaceful means. We do pray for the healing of those who were injured. As well, when the frontier board intervenes, we do it with reason. I believe heartily in the power being relegated to the boroughs, but sometimes national response is necessary.” Citizens of Mastikan appeared unhappy with the response and have begun to claim the Frontier Captain and his board are usurping their power. As the story continues, we will come to you with more information.

Broadcasts from the Crescent Broadcasts from the Crescent is the newspaper thread for the Dominions of Metztlitlaca and will be split mainly into 3 newspapers. The first newspaper and will be the most commonly used is the Capital Paper. Founded in 1843 by the Archpriest at the time, the Capital Paper is a nationally run corporation managed directly by the Teopac of Finance and the Teopac of Culture and Religious Life. When the Unified Republic of Palu first came to power after colonialism, the Capital Paper was renamed to the Palu Papers and then used to propagate propaganda across the nation. The Limonaian Republic after used the Palu Paper under the same name as their own propaganda company. The Kingdoms of Metztlica and Acolica attempted to shut down the Palu Papers due to it's controversial history, but was eventually allowed to continue to exist as long as they returned to their initial branding of the Capital Paper and remained a nationalised company. Although the Capital Paper declares itself to be politically and culturally neutral it's perspective on stories are often bias towards the government and the economy. The Capital Paper is also one of the few Newspaper companies which repeatedly addresses global issues as well as major headlines from other nations, giving it some rather powerful political influence over the public. The second newspaper is the Truths of Metztli, a more culturally right-wing newspaper that primarily sells in the Azlo and Faloki communities with a strong bias towards LAANN and Metztli Nationalist and against Il Domineo and the greater wurld community. Although Truths of Metztli has the economic capabilities to go out to other nations and report on major headlines, besides LAANN they rarely talk about the wurld outside of Metztlitlaca. Despite their name, take what they say with a grain of salt. The Truths of Metztli is relatively new, only beginning to print in 1999 but has soared in popularity within the Faloki and Azlo due to it's anti-oppressor attitude and anti-globalist ideology (not counting LAANN, of course). Several times in the 2000s and 2010s the Teopac of Culture and Religious Life took the Truths of Metztli to court over perceived hate speeches. In the end the Truths of Metztli prevailed as they never explicitly broke any laws pertaining towards hate speech. Lastly is the Vocal Voice, a culturally and economically left-wing company that often works alongside the Teopac of Finance. Founded in 1948 the Vocal Voice was initially the national newspaper of the South Palu Confederation but was shut down once the Limonaian Republic annexed the nation. In 1988 the Vocal Voice was re-established with the help of the Teopac of Finance 40 years after it's initial closure. The Vocal Voice is most prominent in the Yatotlan, Tapelt, Pekatekan, and Xinmetztli Dominions due to leaning more towards left-liberal then the rest of the nation. Nowadays however, the Vocal Voice is known for it's more scandalous and less-than-mature writing compared to the more passionately written Truths of Metztli or logically typed Capital Paper. The Vocal Voice is far more secular then it's two competitors, and rarely reports on religion/faith-based news stories unless said news story impacts the whole nation greatly. The Vocal Voice may not fact check as much as the Capital Paper, and so it can come off as just as bias as the Truths of Metztli - albeit in a completely different direction. One thing you might notice about all three logos is that none of them possess any text, as iconography is far more important to the Metztlitlacans then text due to the numerous national languages within the country - most of which blend into one another at tribal and ethnic borders - resulting in a bureaucratic nightmare for any company. If text is used, it usually printed in Standardised Naxua, the Yatotlan Dialect of Cristinese, and the Faloki Dialect of Huang all written in the Aroman alphabet along with Standard Anglish and the Salxa Dialect of Salvian in the Acolica Dominion; Tapelt Naxua if in the northern half of the Yatotla Dominion and Tapelt Dominion; and Pekatekan and Anglish in the Pekateka Dominion. Therefore the easiest thing to do is to have a recognisable logo if your company exists beyond your local community.
FINANCE | BUSINESS | STOCK MARKET | COMMODITIES | POLITICS | TECHNOLOGY DAWCOIN DIVES AFTER MEGA LOSS WEEKEND Carlington, Anderson. The Dawcoin crypto currency loses most of its value following a disastrous weekend. The Dawson based crypto-currency became PyeMcGowan’s first and only crypto currency in 2009 when it became public. Until 2016 it was worth at most a few hundred Poggles, but with futher investment prices began to skyrocket making many, who invested in the beginning, multi-millionaires. The currency became so successful that many stores and banks such as Unitons, United Bank, Buckstar and NCBC accept it as it would Poggles, in January Parliament debated recognising it as a foreign Currency, and the Minister for Business proposed that it be considered in a way such as a dominion currency, such as the Leverne Poggle or Nova Marina Dollar. But yesterday the currency took a sharp dive, losing 250 Poggles worth of value in under 10 minutes, and over a thousand throughout the day. Many have lost hundreds of thousands of Poggles in yesterday’s events and ripples from the crash have struck multiple online currencies across Eurth, creating a crypto crash as many financial journalists have been calling it. The ‘Central Bank’ that controls the currency has sent an urgent plea to its millionaire and billionaire backers to help the currency retain its value.So far it is unknown what started the rapid devaluing, but many presume that it is linked with a possible major sell of some Dawcoin, by one of the currency’s millionaire traders. The Head of the currency, Dominic Potrenco has refused to attend Parliamentary Committees multiple times in the past, but with the recent plummeting of the crypto currency’s value and disinterest among investors, Potrenco has accepted an invitation to attend the Digital Banking And Finance Committee, which will be on PMN Parliament 2 on Thursday at midday. The Gladstone Switch, And The Future of PyeMcGowian Energy By Dr Benjamin Riversea Yesterday at a press conference Bill Gladstone, the founder and CEO of Gladstone Energy, one of the largest fossil fuel based energy companies, announced that from the 1st of July all Oil and coal based operations will have been sold or ceased, as they are switching to renewable energy production. This follows the billionaire CEO’s recent trip to multiple remote islands in the South Adlantic And Oriental Oceans where many witnessed how rising tides have caused mass flooding, and making thousands homeless, he said that he was effected by the scenes that he witnessed, which led him to stop his company from emitting any more emissions. Wind Power has Become the second largest power source behind nuclear energy, the Department For Public Infrastructure has released plans for major wind farms in the bay and in the windy plateaus of the mid west. Another project was released for a large Dam on the river Contant, whichas it flows completely through Theodoria, possibly proving a future energy pact, either way, renewable energies are the future, and by 2025, will have made more jobs than the entire Extraction Industry in PyeMcGowan. Flooding has severely effected low islands, forcing many to retreat to higher ground.
The Feudal Times is Mauridiviah's top newspaper. Founded during the times of the early monarchy, it has only been a hit since the fall of the monarchy due to a scandal about the paper refusing to change its name nor close. It gives news from the baised perspective of the Monarchist Party, a now minor but strong party in Mauridivian politics. The motto of Feudal Times is "SEMPER VERIDICVM", "Always truthful" in Latin.
