Black Flag Number 1

News Reservoir of Libcom


To celebrate the March anniversary of the 1921 Kronstadt rebellion, the region National Socialist Republics was taken and held by the voices of respectable moderation.

Maseot and twenty two nations were ignominiously expelled from the World Assembly for rule violations by game moderators. In a desperate attempt to eject the combined Antifa forces, goons decided to share the delegate seat, desperately pleading "Everybody else does it, so why can't we?".

This devoid plea was rejected and all goon nations found to be contravening game rules were summarily dispatched to the Rejected Realms. If caught next time, the NationStates Boneyard will give a right royal welcome to some new occupants.

The word on the street, embarrassment.


After years of having a long term squat in The Internationale, party occupiers were given their marching orders, when a notice of impending eviction was nailed to the door of their embassy.

Undeterred Libcom occupiers unanimously decided to fight for their right to hold an eviction party, renamed their embassy the House of Anarchy and three days of drunken revelry and general debauchery ensued.

As a parting shot, the embassy wall was sprayed with the considered epitaph "Little f#$%ing Hitlers". Unconfirmed reports attributed this urbane graffiti to the nation Class warfare, but we suspect this to be counter propaganda permeated by the posterior vanguard of another region.

Once the eviction notice was served, Libcom issued an immediate invoice for financial reparations due to lost real estate, damages caused by uninvited gate crashers and general defamation of character. This was paid in full.

The words on the embassy street, Non, rien de rien, Non, je ne regrette rien, C'est payé, balayé, oublié, Je me fous du passé! (


In related news, it has been brought to the attention of Libcom, that another region has graciously reviewed our new rag. Here are just some of the insightful critiques of the past week and Libcom are collectively honoured by them:

THE DEFENDER ALLIANCE "I can't help but feel badly for our comrades who have to put up with infantile and sectarian garbage such as this."

Comrade Mark "Remember when things were simplier when the only idiots we had to deal with were Nazi scum. Those were the days."

West savannah "Bold intellectual dishonestly, aligning themselves with "an"-caps and other right-"libertarians," just all around immaturity."

THE DEFENDER ALLIANCE "Arm chair internet "revolutionaries" who think they know better than scientific socialism and historically proven revolutionary tactics."

Godless munky "They all agree that black is a very fashionable color, flags that are half black (half some other color for your an-whatever variant)." (see masthead, your wish is my command).

West savannah "Dishonest and unnecessarily inflammatory rhetoric."

THE DEFENDER ALLIANCE "Suffers from such backstabbing qualities."

Sornian vanguard "Anarchism is an ideology that permits the restoration of the bourgeoisie and the empowerment of the petty bourgeoisie."

Comrade Mark "Hey, did you guys also receive that notice of the libcom scum talking about us?"

Comradeland "Stuffing people's heads with rubbish."

The words on the street, rien n’est fini, tout commence.
