“Titā matunuturī ma wurukiusi! Saru anuravana iʻarī, wuka mavīaʻa vana!”
People are shouting at the top of their lungs, as chaos ensued after a decision was read out loud by the leader of Reformist faction, Wanutāvariʻi. The sentences were roughly translated to ‘We don’t bow down to the bourgeoisie! We must crush them, not making amends with them!’
Wanutāvariʻi smiled at the reaction. It was going as expected. He was just reading the motion of the Revolutionary Council, declaring that the war with the Purist faction will be resumed, after almost one year of an uneasy period of peace. The people couldn’t wait any longer, and so did he and everyone else in the Council. But he and the Council knew it was a necessary action. The faction would've collapsed if weren't for the Armistice. But not a lot of people knew about this. They hid a lot of things from the mass. For their good.
The Reformist faction wasn’t initially formed as a unified front from the beginning. It grew out of a communication channel between many various parties that fought against Queen Varamatamaranga, each with their aims and goals. Increased fighting as the war drew out necessitated a unified command, and thus the Reformist faction is officially formed, under the name ʻUrungama mi Taturatanga (Group of Reformer). The various factions that comprised the Reformist were still independent, safe for the coordination for the war effort. These arrangements satisfied everyone, but Wanutāvariʻi knew how hard it was to maintain the integrity of the decentralized faction, especially with some parties trying to gain leverage at the expense of the others. This factor, coupled together with the lack of training among the troops, greatly compromised the Reformist war-effort, resulting in a set-back that prompted the Armistice with the Purist. The last battle on Terata, the old capital of Reyan Empire, destroyed most of their equipment. But it also wiped-out one-fourth of the Purist forces. Both parties had no choice.
Looking at the crowd below, and the chaos that reigned, he knew that he couldn't trust any of them to do anything right. Not for the second time. No, for the entirety of this renewed war, he would only trust he and a few associates of him. This time, the war would go according to his words. And the Reformist will prevail over its enemy, the Purist.
Namānurarī Tamunaranga! Death to the Purist! Death to Capitalist!
THE REVOLUTIONARY TRIBUNE
MESSAGE FROM SECRETARY-GENERAL NORFOLK
Welcome to THE REVOLUTIONARY TRIBUNE, THE FREE PRESS OF THE SECOND REVOLUTION! Since the first of June, we have stopped all public broadcasting from PyeMcGowan to the outside world, we began by launching multiple attacks on the brainwashing media of the Frobrischer, collectively we the working people destroyed the capitalist megalomania they called Broadcasting corporations, one brainwashing television channel at a time. As the cowards in government, the bourgeoisie, and the rich and discraseful left for Nova Marina and their tropical paridises built off of the backs of slaves, we united the republic into a new paradise of equality and freedom for all. The corrupted institutions created hell for the workers of the world. The banks left the proliteriat in squalor and prison like communities, now the greedy and disgraceful bankers live in our re-education camps. Where they can learn the harsh realities that they had created.
No Longer shall the coastal elites of the Frobrischer have all the power. Now the people’s of the north shall have their say. The seat of power shall no longer be in Charleston, where the last battle took place, a symbol of greed and capitalism, now laying in ashes. Now the seat is in a place of the people, Hagren as long been a symbol of the workers, the farmers, the factory workers once seen as assets to the bourgeoisie. Now let freedom rain on our people’s new land.
