The night of the dead rats
On a quiet night one of the biggest crackdown operation on Dutch soil was conducted. KNIL and Landwacht soldiers stormed nationalist hideouts and encampments all across the country. Weapons and munitions got confiscated. Prominent leaders like Sukarno and Mohammad Hatta got captured and are currently being escorted to the nearest detainment camp.

The Trap
A KNIL convoy was driving trough the hilly terrain of java when suddenly gunshots were heard. The Convoy was stopped and KNIL soldiers rushed outside of their vehicles. It was already too late, Dozens of armed nationalists rushed to the convoy. The final words on the radio were from a KNIL
lieutenant: "Its too late, I'm afraid we are not gonna make it. We got overrun, it... it all was a trap."

Word of this quickly spread trough the local population and later Sukarno aired on the radio proclaiming the free republic of Indonesia. The crackdown had no effect because the nationals were expecting one and prepared for it. Sukarno said that we should arm ourselves and kick out the Belanda's. (Indonesian swearword for the Dutch)

In the following weeks militias quickly took massive amounts of ground on the island of Sumatra and Java. They managed to take over the country side but not the big cities protected by the KNIL and Landwacht garrisons. The current situation in Indonesia is grim as the Indonesians took over almost all of Sumatra and parts of java. The spread out colonial garrison couldn't handle the numbers of the Indonesian militia's

The government of Dietsland announced to mobilize against the treat in Indonesia and send its army and their carrier fleet to Indonesia. Men all across the empire volunteered to join up. Van Geelkerken said that this will be a swift war and that we shall take back the land the traitors of the Dutch empire took.


Okay guys, kind of a sudden thing but I need to this out. I will be gone for 37 days as I will be on orders from the Army. Contact will not be possible until the 1st of August as only then will I be able to resume activities here.

Communists Form State
After the events in Kunming the Communists have become more bold. The National Liberation Front, a Communist Militia, has declared a breakaway state in the Yun Nan prefecture of the Amodo State. The state calls itself the Tibetan Socialist Workers Republic. The Tibetan Communist Party has since relocated to Yun Nan and declared their allegiance. Yesterday the Kalsang dispatched the Federal Police to the border to arrest any member that attempts to return to Tibet.

The military will be dispatched to the area with a list of demands that include dissolving the breakaway state and handing over all members of the Communist Party to be tried for Treason. Tensions are already high in the border towns where the civilian militias have been placed on high alert.

All roads leading into the Amodo state have been blocked off and the train line leading into Amodo has been suspended until further notice.


Bombing in Trankvileco
A bomb was detonated in the capital of Trankvileco, killing 4. The residence of the royal family was undamaged however there was damage done to the castle where government officials were.

Indonesia Revolution
Revolution has broken out in the Indonesian colonies. Already militias have seized Sumatra and Java. The situation is grim as many properties are reported to have been damaged or seized.

Sunday dissident movement
In our faithful and traditional land, Sunday, the one day off guaranteed to all and a day of worship in all Christian nations, is traditionally a day of calm, a day of reflection and a day of worship. Unfortunately for our nation, on the Sunday just past there was little peace and calm in the capital. The Church bells rang out in every district of Elinhir; filling the streets with their holy chorus. Into the Churches the usual sunday worshippers went with the cold Karthspiri morning air nipping at their skin. But after just half an hour, congregations across the city began to leave their churches as the bells rang out once again.

Congregations marched through the streets under the cover of Karthspiri flags; singing hymns and war songs solemly as onlookers gazed upon the streets. The main boulevards of the Capital were filled with the songs of worshippers marching in long columns led by priests and clergymen still dressed for their services.

The lines of worshippers from each and every church in the capital converged at St. Arja's Square in the centre of the city; waiting for them, stood at the base of the great statue which guards the square's cathedral, was the Patriarch of Elinhir - the highest-ranking member of the Orthodox clergy inside Karthspire. As worshippers gathered in the square, the Patriarch began to speak to the crowds; raising his voice so all could hear. The patriarch delivered a traditional sermon but, before dismissing the congregation, delivered another; attacking the state of Karthspire.

"When we became free from the Russians, we all hoped, deep down in our hearts, that we would create a new nation; founded on freedom and justice. Instead, the old order the Russians left has been replaced by a state which abuses its own people." He went on with the speech for another hour before the crowds dispursed and went back to their usual business. Although such public incitement is not usually tolerated due to the threat it poses to the security of all of us, the clergy appears to be taking advantage of an old law forbidding the arrest or punishment of a holy man or woman for anything said as part of a sermon.

Situation in the West worsenes
Although the conflict in our nation's west has long troubled us, a new fight is just beginning. The creation of a new movement in the Beshklarel state has diverted the attention of the army from the insurgent KNLI and forced it to fight on two fronts. The frontul național românesc (FNR) are a group based in the part of Karthspire once known as the Principality of Moldavia; the population of which are more ethnically and culturally aligned with neighbouring Romania. The first actions of the group were seen in the city of Descariln (Chisinau) when, during a visit by the state premier to a local hospital, several shots rang out from a nearby rooftop; injuring two nurses but leaving the state premier unscathed. With the backing of the nation, our brave armed forces will put down this, and all, insurrection and return order to our nation once again.

They are holding small pockets in the city like the goverment district, the harbor district and the majority dutch neighbourhoods. They are waiting for their releive by the Dutch army currently on its way from South Africa and the mainland.

The Empire Report

Message from the Regino
Excerpt from Last Night's Speech
I can now confirm that the explosion early morning yesterday was a cowardly move by a joint effort of two terrorist organizations, the Sons of Spain and the the Free State Alliance of Africa. I can also sadly confirm that in the fireball, most of my cabinet save for my Foreign Diplomatic Minister who was with me at the time was killed. Along with them, 8 of my own guardsmen, and senior staff enjoying their breakfast or going about their duties before starting their day. My words cannot begin to show the losses the Empire has a whole has suffered, but let it be assured, that those who perpetrated the crimes shall be punished harshly for this. For now, Trankvila is now in a state of emergency and I want to convey the message to the groups that you will not escape the wrath not of the crown, but the families, friends, and the Empire who lost such great souls today. I wish you all a good night, may you rest safely. And for those who died, may you rest in peace.

Dear members of coalition,
Me as the leader of Kasakyan Republic I require you to come with investments in the field of automotive industry and bank sector.
I would appreciate very much your activity.
Thanks a lot

The situation in Yun Nan has become violent. Communist guerrillas have engaged federal troops just outside the prefecture limits. We have word that 5 soldiers and 3 police officers were killed in action as they moved back. The troops were given permission to engage the guerrillas. Local journalists have reported that the guerillas used stolen artillery from a local outpost. Locals say the guerrillas massacred the ten police officers guarding the outpost yesterday.

We are getting word that backup soldiers are being rallied from nearby outposts and will be transported in via airplane. They have orders to capture the province and put an end to the uprising. The Kashag has asked for foreign help if the situation worsens.

The borders with neighboring countries have been temporarily closed for 24 hours in order to prevent escape for the Communists. The borders will reopen tomorrow under alternative hours and under increased security.
