CITIZENS PANICKING AS ZOMBIE PRESENCE THREATENS ALENIAN BORDERS!

With undead presence circling all around the country of Alenveil, citizens are beginning to worry for their safety. For them to successfully protect themselves with their 1% of manpower, they would need to arm all of it, and that may not be possible, should the undead citizens blast through the entire army with one fell swoop. Citizens are worried, and the government is cornered. Who knows what might happen next?

KING POLLO FINALLY ACTS: GUARDSMEN WILL BE DEPLOYED ALONG BORDERS

In the destructive wake of the undead menace, King Damocle La Pollo finally acts. At 12:09 PM today, he finally allowed for  Alenian National Guard to mobilize along the northern and eastern borders. Neo-Enclave soldiers and vertibirds will also be deployed to assist Alenian forces. Soldiers may take a few hours, if not even days, to reach their stations. Even then, this still gives the citizens of Alenveil hope, even if this hope doesn't last.

MEMORIAL TO REPORTER OSCAR CERCONE

Within a few days, the undead overtook almost the whole country. The guards were able to keep them back, but one man was brave enough to go out in the front lines to find out the truth of this situation. No weapons, not even a cure. This man was a reporter of the tribune by the name of Oscar Cercone. This man was cheery but punctual and never let anything get in the way of his work. Some may have even though he was insane, going out in the center of tropical depressions, snowstorms, gunfire, just to understand the truth of this confusing world. He died doing just that. One of the most devoted citizens we had, sent into death, and then undeath, and then death once again. His family is mourning as well as the millions who read his articles. Oscar Cercone, as well as millions of families who lost their wives, husbands, and children. They are gone, but they are not forgotten.

General News Roundup

  • Sarbo citizens have set up a large memorial service in the city graveyard for the thousands, if not millions who were lost to the undead. King La Pollo has made a national address to console citizens for the passing weeks.
  • National Guardsmen kill the last remaining zombies who survived the unknown, otherworldly purge of their numbers.

ALENIAN GOVERNMENT SET THEIR SIGHTS ON SOUTHERN COASTAL ISLANDS

Prime Minister Tartaglione has recently proposed the idea of spreading to the islands off the coast. More specifically, the southern island. Their plan for the island is to convert it into a trading post.

Prime Minister Tartaglione has stated in an address that "we hope to establish a trading post to increase our influence on Eurth and to help increase our trading imports and exports." We wait for the confirmation that this is, indeed, coming into effect. Until then, we will keep readers posted.

PRIME MINISTER TARTAGLIONE LYING ABOUT FISHING RIGHTS?

Yesterday, Prime Minister Tartaglione visited @PyeMcGowan to discuss Auraid fishing rights. At 7:15, he entered the Blue Merchant's Hall and the press were quickly shushed out of the room before they spoke after beginning pictures were taken. However, our reporter Loki Freymarsson noticed that there were military planners and generals present in a merchant's summit. 

Freymarsson even spoke to the Prime Minister himself and he was acting very sheepish and quick to try and get Loki out. "Tariffs on imported foodstuffs are being lowered," he told him with a stutter. So, the question remains, is the government lying to us? If so, what could they be lying about? Is it war? Government conspiracy? ANT will continue to investigate this issue.

      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.

      26 charged with domestic terrorism, Shengren Hei Jingyi approves death penalty sentencing.
      President Chen Jiang applauds the State Peacekeepers for their excellent work in detaining these dangerous enemies of the State.
      LI SHUN  | 28 APRIL 2020

      The 26 men have been detained and sentenced to death by the Shengren, Hei Jingyi.
      At 8:00 AM today, the State Peacekeeper Force (SPF) released a report detailing the crimes of 26 terrorists, and said that they are now under custody and awaiting sentences. The sentences came just 4 hours later at 12:05 PM, as another report was released, with Shengren Hei Jingyi's stamp of approval to sentence all 26 men to death by hanging.
      While the charges for each criminal deviated slightly, all of them were charged with slandering the State and plotting the upheaval of society. The SPF says in their report that all of these men were conspiring to overthrow the President, the Shengren, and dismantle the entire government.
      In a press conference later in the day at 6:30 PM, Li Feng, a spokesperson of the SPF, revealed that the men were apprehended late last night. He also revealed that these criminals have been under surveillance for several weeks now, and they are confident that they have captured all of the conspirators.
      We reached out to President Chen Jiang to get his thoughts about the crimes and sentencing of these terrorists. This is what he had to say on the subject:
      "These recent attacks towards the government is also an attack on Heiheguo itself. Our way of life is being attacked here. The detainment of these criminals fills me with relief. As for the sentencing, it will be a greater mercy for these men move on to their next life than to rot in a cell."
      The families and close friends of these men are currently under investigation for aiding in their conspiracy. We will keep you updated with any further developments in this story.

      From Sleep to Sugar Rush
      In a sleepy farming town in the valleys of Juraba Province, a great divide has been struck between the local community of Viroveli and the loved chocolate company ‘Kao-Kao’; who has desired to build massive cacao plantations in the area. Kao-Kao on the 27th of March purchased large tracts of land with the approval of the local authorities of the town - stating that the company has the intention of creating new jobs and helping with the development of the town, also trying to attract cityfolk to come live and work in the town. “This place needs a shake up” one passionate Kao-Kao representative has stated to EWT journalists. “We've been looking at the rundown places like Viroveli in Juraba for quite awhile, and the potential they are wasting” he continued telling the media. 
       
      After local farmers and businesses heard of Kao-Kao moving in and their plans for the small community, they went up in arms. Demanding the local authorities to retake “their land” and protect local business, despite Kao-Kao reassuring them that they had no intention of hurting local business with their venture. The local council received several letters of complaints from farmers, local business owners and families that were going to be affected by this decision - But the local authorities remained silent on the matter and told the dissenting townsfolk that their potential losses shall be relieved and given new homes if needed. 
       
      EWT journalists at Viroveli asked the local authorities why they took up the offer. One local representative told the media that it's for the greater benefit of the town to allow companies like Kao-Kao to come and help with employment. “We believe a lot of good will come out of this agreement” he told the media. “It will add new income to the town and allow us to join the wider economy” he continued.
       
      The decision enraged local businesses and farmers being very unhappy with the decision, resulting in a start of an aggressive town-wide activist campaign against Kao-Kao on the 3rd of April. EWT interviewed some business owners, farmers and affected families, asking them for their opinions on the matter and why they are doing this campaign against Kao-Kao. Many said that ‘“this was blatant gentrification of the town”, explaining to the media that this threatened many residents incomes and businesses; also continuing to say that with the town’s council and Kao-Kao’s intention of bringing in cityfolk, it threatened the local culture and Viroveli’s way of life; despite once again Kao-Kao reassuring that they had no such plans. 
       
      The campaign against Kao-Kao managed to garner support from other angry residents who wanted to protect the town from what they called “predatory’ conglomerates” like Kao-Kao. A recent poll on the 11th of April by the known Esonian research and data firm ‘Esostatics’ showed that approximately 67% of the 15,483 residents interviewed agreed that Kao-Kao should leave the town. While 23% said they don’t know while 20% actively encouraged Kao-Kao to build the plantations and help the town prosper. With this data collected, the hostile leaders of the anti-Kao-Kao campaign gave the local council an ultimatum stating, to either comply with resident demands or face protests. 
       
      However, the local authorities stood their ground and continued to assure everyone that Kao-Kao was going to stay and help the town grow and prosper; calling the group out as ignorant and refusing to change and modernise for the betterment of the town. Kao-Kao was thankful with this decision, but the enraged residents weren’t. EWT once again interviewed residents after the decision, with many falling to conspiracy calling the local council as “corrupt”’ and believed that “shady business was going on behind the scenes” with little evidence.
       
      On the 16th of April big protests sparked on the streets, marching towards Kao-Kao’s farmlands that were still under preparation with new infrastructure being under construction. This halted the town’s productivity and many innocent residents not involved in this also became affected by the disturbance. Police were called upon to keep peace during the protests, but things were escalating. A counter-protest was organised only a day later against the anti-Kao-kao protestors, mostly made up of young people who supported the company. But unfortunately even though the police’s best efforts to maintain calm, conflict broke out. An enraged farmer from the anti-Kao-Kao protest threw a molotov cocktail at the construction site which caused a tragic explosion killing 12 construction workers.  
       
      The event shocked many across the nation after it was reported by media outlets for the whole nation to see, and this formerly local event became a focus of national attention. Violence persisted after the horrible explosion with the hostile anti-Kao-Kao protestors and counter protestors fighting against each other, blaming each other over what happened and how it could have been prevented. Local authorities became divided over the matter and a few town representatives came out against Kao-Kao saying “it was the reason for causing such disruption to the town’s peace”. But many still supported Kao-Kao and continued calling out the violence. Juraban authorities have also been called upon to help deal with the issue and potentially calling in rioting police to end the protests.
       
      As of the 21st of April, the protests are still ongoing and Juraban authorities still are thinking about the solution to the issues in Viroveli. Some have said on the internet that the situation in Viroveli is “representative of many similar problems other towns and villages” are facing over “gentrification” and the “invasion of city culture into the countryside”, but little supported evidence suggests that.
