Radio Free Eurth


 

If you are listening to this broadcast, do not adjust your radio. You may be a citizen of a repressive state like @Ratopia , @Greater Serbia@Poland-Lithuania, @Imperial States of Europe, or wherever in the world oppression may rear its ugly head in future. Regardless, it is important that this program be heard by you. My name is Aidan McNance; I speak to you now on behalf of Radio Free Eurth, a new, international organization dedicated in its whole to preserving freedom. This organization has no political agenda, save the belief that the freedom of information is of paramount importance to humanity, and that any state which seeks to suppress it is one that does not act in the best interests of its citizens. It is likely that your government will attempt to hinder the objectives of this organization, whether through misinformation about our objectives, confiscation of radio equipment, or simple fear and brutality. This is the totalitarian miscarriage of justice that Radio Free Eurth seeks to combat. On this frequency, whatever the time of day, you will find the news, the real news, free of partisan narrative. If you are listening to this broadcast, do not fear. If you can hear me, you are not alone.

On the RFE Mission to the Hellenic Rus

If you are listening to this broadcast, do not adjust your radio.

People of Eurth, it is with great pleasure that I announce to you this evening the beginning of Radio Free Eurth's first mission afield in its history. Through no small feat of international diplomacy, RFE personnel will be joining Prymontian and Fulgistani forces in the effort to liberate and aid the people of the Hellenic Rus, who previously lived in constant fear of the terrorist Circle of Death group. I, Aidan McNance...will not, in fact, be joining our intrepid correspondents on their vital mission; my delicate constitution does not permit me to endure the arctic clime of the region. However! From our studio in Girk, it will be my pleasure to bring you up-to-the-minute coverage from Radio Free Eurth reporters in the field.

People of the former Hellenic Rus, help is on the way. Radio Free Eurth has no agenda beyond truth, no goal beyond freedom, and no supervisor beyond you the people. We do not carry rifles, grenades, or knives. Only compassion, dedication, and love. Though we come from many nations of the world, the borders of our mother country lay around the human heart. If you are listening to this broadcast, do not fear. If you can hear me, you are not alone.

On the Faramanian Dictator's Birthday

If you are listening to this broadcast, do not adjust your radio. This is Radio Free Faramount, a service of the People's Republic of Faramount in affiliation with Radio Free Eurth.

Matteo Terrone celebrated his ninety-second birthday yesterday. This was his fifty-fifth birthday since he illegally and violently seizing control of the country in 1963. To those of you still living under his tyrannical rule, we can only bring you the best of news -- the end is surely near. His short speech paled in comparison to his droning addresses of the past, making it clear that his health continues to decline. Soon, we will be rid of the butcher of our people. We are confident that when he dies, the Republic of Faramount will be restored.

The true leader of Faramount -- Prime Minister Sofia Savio -- pledged a "new era of resistance to this illegal regime" upon Terrone's death. "We have always fought for the freedom of the Faramanian people, but with Terrone's death, we will have a new opportunity to restore liberty in Faramount. The United Revolutionary Armed Forces of Faramount are biding their time, awaiting the opportunity to undertake new offensives once the present regime collapses. When the time comes, our soldiers will fill the streets, joined by people loyal to the true government of Faramount."

For Radio Free Faramount, I'm Marco Gesualdi. Stay strong, Faramount.

On Human Rights in Faramount

If you are listening to this broadcast, do not adjust your radio. This is Radio Free Faramount, a service of the People's Republic of Faramount in affiliation with Radio Free Eurth.

You may have heard on Faramount Public Media of the supposed "insults" of Mauridiviah towards Faramount. Pay those claims no heed. Yesterday, an independent academic group in Mauridiviah confirmed what the Faramanian people already know -- that the brutal Terrone regime does not pay the slightest heed to civil or political rights in Faramount. This may seem a self-evident finding -- but its confirmation by an independent group makes all the more clear the rising global distaste towards President Terrone.

But worry not -- Terome's days are numbered, and once he is gone, the People's Republic will finally liberate Faramount, and restore constitutional, democratic order. I am sure that most of our viewers do not even remember the days of the Republic of Farmount -- when one could speak his mind without worry of being killed. When one could actually vote. When the lives of average Faramanians were improving, not getting worse each day. When our national resources were used to help our people, not to serve foreign interests.

The days of Terrone's exploitation will end soon. In the meantime, stay strong, Faramount. For Radio Free Faramount, I'm Marco Gesualdi.

Golden Tigers Defeat True Greens 3-1

Good evening. This is Radio Free Faramount, a service of the People's Republic of Faramount in affiliation with Radio Free Eurth.

Our top story tonight: the Fulgistani Golden Tigers have defeated the Faramontese True Greens 3-1 in a friendly match in Bogd Gioro. The Golden Tigers took an early lead, and dominated through the game, but in an upset, the True Greens did score a single point in the second half. Fulgistani forward Oleg Sidek distinguished himself during the match, being recognized as the most valuable player. Faramount's sole goal was scored by Ansaldo Feole, a twenty-three year old graduate school student who players on his university's association football team.

The True Greens are the national football team of the People's Republic, comprised of Faramontese loyalist players drawn from across the world. The Golden Tigers and True Greens play an exhibition game every year just prior to the AHARA and SATAMFC cups. The Golden Tigers are almost always victorious, as the Faramontese team is mostly constituted of amateur players. The match is held to show the friendship between Faramount and Fulgistan -- and to demonstrate that Faramount's national football team continues to play, despite the 1964 Massacre of the Greens, in which the dictator Terrone executed nearly the entire award-winning Faramontese National Football Team.

The brutality of the Terrone regime was far from the minds of the greater Faramontese diaspora today, however, as they enjoyed a suprisingly compelling match. For Radio Free Eurth, I'm Marco Gesualdi. Stay tuned for an in-depth review of the game.

World Unites Against Derthalen

Good evening. This is Radio Free Faramount, a service of the People's Republic of Faramount in affiliation with Radio Free Eurth.

The People's Republic of Faramount has declared war upon the Holy Empire of Derthalen, joining a growing international coalition committed to toppling the cult-like despotic theocracy. The conflict arose several months ago, when Derthaler pirates attacked Seylosian shipping with the tacit support of the Derthalen government. The Holy Empire has long incited its population to unprovoked violence against outsiders, and for decades, the Derthaler people's aggression has simply been tolerated. But at long last, the international community has stepped up, and is now committed to holding the leaders of Derthalen to account. The People's Republic joined the coalition today, supporting its long-time ally, Fulgistan.

Most experts expect the coalition to achieve quick victory against Derthalen. Coalition nations including Seylos, Fulgistan, and Limonaia have vastly greater air and sea assets than the theocracy, which is reliant largely upon a conscript army. There are hopes that many of the Holy Empire's subjects will surrender rather than defend such an irrational, aggressive regime. But only time will tell. In a moment, we will have an interview with Prime Minister Sofia Savio regarding her decision to support Fulgistan in this conflict. For Radio Free Eurth, I'm Marco Gesualdi. Stay tuned.

Fulgistan and Mauridiviah Issue Joint Declaration of Support for RFE SSI

If you are listening to this broadcast, do not adjust your radio.

Good day. This is Santiago Gutierrez on behalf of Radio Free Mauridiviah, with an internationally broadcast special announcement. This morning the governments of the Worker's Republic of @Fulgistan and the Most Serene Republic of Mauridiviah have released the following joint statement regarding the Parliament of the Sunset Sea Islands' criminalization of RFSSI:

"Good people of Eurth. We hope that the recent actions by the government of the Radiant Republic of the @Sunset Sea Islands has opened the eyes of all of your governments as to the state of freedom and liberty in the Radiant Republic. It has become clear that their democratic backsliding, which has been occuring since the tragic events in 2017, is beginning to reach levels that would've been unimaginable just a few years ago.

The Parliament of the Radiant Republic has criminalized dissent, with Party Chairman Candidate Gao He Ping calling mere broadcasters "terrorists" and accusing them of "seditious activities". The real terrorists are those who run a regime that slowly choke the inalienable rights and freedoms of their own people with mass survelliance and an expansion of the definition of "criminal". The dictatorship of the Theresa Tumbleweed has now resorted to reviving a concept that had gone extinct in the civilized world: that of sedition. This action alone is worthy of the strongest condemnation imaginable from all free nations, but the legal use of it merits an even stronger, more visceral, response. Free nations should not only strongly condemn the actions of the Sunset Sea Islands, they should be disgusted. Whatever the Radiant Republic wishes to call it, an assault on the freedon of expression of one is an assault on the freedom of expression of all.

As such, it is our hope that all free nations of Eurth join the Worker's Republic of Fulgistan and the Most Serene Republic of Mauridiviah in condemning the criminalization and smearing of RFSSI and join us in standing in solidarity with the station. The world must not allow another nation stoop to the level of an autocracy, Eurth has enough of those already.

In addition, the Worker's Republic of Fulgistan has advised Radio Free Eurth to send its very own Aidan McNance to the station (with all appropriate protections) to show that the free world shall not be intimidated by the forces of tyranny into submisison.

We shall not let freedom and democracy perish from the Sunset Sea Islands. We shall fuel the fire of liberty so that it will forever shine brightly over Thalassa and the world. We do not do this by choice, but because we have to, as we all do, to protect the futures of generations unborn. We will not back down."

If you are listening to this broadcast, do not fear. If you can hear us, you are not alone.

Radio Free Eurth - Radio Free Sunset Sea Islands


On Visiting the Sunset Sea Islands

If there was one word to describe the recent history of the Sunset Sea Islands, it would have to be "change". With the staggering amount of upheaval the nation has gone through, sometimes it is hard to realise that what feels like decades has been two years at best. Every day, the Sunset Sea Islands slide down a dystopian rabbithole a little bit more. If we look back just two years, we see a thriving tourist paradise, world-famous for its beautiful beaches and welcoming nature. In stark contrast to every other aspect of life in the SSI, the tourism sector has probably changed the least. The government knows exactly how vital tourism is to the national economy, which is why new incentives to boost this branch of the industry are continuously conceived. New methodes of cost-prevention lower the price of holidays in the equatorial archipelago and the visitor numbers to the world's most popular tourist destination continue to climb. Even the lovechild of the regime, the Synapse System, has been scaled back significantly in tourist destinations and resort cities.

Nevertheless, no matter how much the government tries to butter tourists up, you have to remember one crucial thing: holidays in the Sunset Sea Islands mean holidays in a surveillance state.

Quietly and without much media attention, the Radiant "Republic" has expanded security checks on people entering the nation, might they be tourists or businesspeople. Whilst the process has been streamlined to make immigration as frictionless as possible, security checks now do not only concern your physical baggage, but your digital one as well.

Like every other tourist destination, the Sunset Sea Islands want as many tourists as possible to leave as much money as possible in the nation, therefore, the tourism industry is not afraid to invest into state-of-the-art 21st century technology. Everything is designed to be as convenient as possible: by scanning a QR code or holding your smartphone against a NFC sensor you can pay virtually everywhere. In restaurants, convenience stores, supermarkets, souvenir shops, the list goes on and on. However, there is a catch to this: to do so, you need a tourist ValID account.

To those of you who might have forgotten, ValID is a government identification system that has been introduced before the technocratic revolution. It links every passport to a digital profile which makes it easy to create accounts for online services, to pay for services and to register at various institutions. What seems like the ultimate convenience in the digital world of the 21st century is nothing more than another tool of mass surveillance.

Naturally, most tourists gladly install the application on their phones. It is widely advertised and nothing is stopping you from deinstalling the programme once you leave the nation. However, as you might have guessed, providing tourist information, navigation and payment services are not the only thing the app does.

Without granting the application access to all the authorities over your device it desires, the app doesn't work. And what does it do once it gets them? It starts scanning. It reads out your messages, your calendar entries, your phone logs and address books, all in search of what the government calls "counterprogressive material" or connections to people the regime might consider dangerous individuals. Whether or not these tourist ValID accounts are temporary or permanent could not be determined so far either.

In a similarily cloak-and-dagger legislation, airport personnel have been authorised to read out the storage of your electronical devices when passing through security checks, all to prevent individuals from smuggling "counterprogressive materials" into the nation. If the guards find such material, for example information about cyber security or privacy, on your devices, you are faced with three choices: delete the files, leave your device at the airport until your return home, or fly right back home.

Even though these worrying developments bring tears to the eyes of those who remember the old tourist paradise of the Sunset Sea Islands, we at RFSSI don't expect to see any change in consumer behaviour. The beautiful environment of the archipelago and the ever-expanding tourist industry with its deals and incentives will continue to pull visitors from all around the globe. Most tourists won't even notice how the national government spies on them, and we don't blame them. When was the last time any of us have read the terms and conditions of any app we've installed on our mobile phones? Will this pirate radio broadcast somewhere in the new world have any influence on the situation? We doubt it. Nevertheless, this is another in a long row of steps the Radiant Republic has taken towards a totalitarian surveillance state.

So the next time you're going for a vacation in the Sunset Sea Islands, it might be worth investing in a NFC-blocking phone case.
