Visit to Vultesia
Today Telsruk Haven announced that he will be visiting Vultesia for 7 days. It will be his first foreign visit ever since he won the election. The agenda for the visit will be to talk about trade, security, etc. Haven said that "Vultesia is our most important ally in terms of security and trade. We must keep good relationships with them as they are our ally".
The announcement of the visit has made many LGBTQ+ people in Wellsenfaile angry. Many LGBTQ+ Vultesians emigrate from Vultesia to Wellsenfaile with about 61% of LBGTQ+ community in Wellenfaile are Vultesians. Many of those Vultesians have told about the horrors and oppression against them. A survey found out that 76% of LBGTQ+ Vultesians suffered some form of mental illness. Today they went out on the streets demanding Haven to cancel the visit to Vultesia. Many LBGTQ+ people feel betrayed with one saying "we came here to be safe and to be heard for but that hasn't happened". Riot police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at the protesters killing 2 teenagers and injuring 11 people. Many expect a bigger protest tomorrow.
Haven will leave in 2 days with some of his assistants and will arrive in Salstil shortly after that. Haven hopes that the visit can strengthen the already strong relationship.
Help I'm sh**😓😭😭
Pride GS Holds Rally Outside Vultesian Embassy
The Gassasinian GRSM/LGBTQ+ rights organisation Pride GS has organised a flash protest outside of the Vultesian Embassy in Jabiyah City.
A candle-light vigil is to be held tomorrow at midnight to protest the killing of two teenage LGBTQ+ rights protesters in Wellsenfaile, and in memory of those persecuted by the Vultesian State
Although unplanned in advance, and thus technically illegal, the National Police has announced that as long as protests remain civil they have no intent to disperse protesters. Efforts are underway to establish communication with protest figureheads so that they can cooperate with police to keep the peace.
The Conservative Party leader has posted on social media criticising police for showing favouritism to protesters despite past police crackdowns on nationalist rallies on the basis of violation of proper procedures for registration of public rallies.
Open to the World, Part 2 (Initiation of Trade with Wellsenfaile)
‘ILDSPYD - The Labour-led Foreneting passed a bill this morning approving a renewed trade agreement with the Empire of Wellsenfaile. In a vote which was split along coalition lines, the agreement has lowered tariffs and non-tariff barriers to commerce between Gratiskov and the Astariaxian nation. King Magnus VI is expected to grant royal assent within the next two days, making this the latest in a series of initiatives by Prime Minister Mogens Řster’s Labour Party to deepen Gratish economic ties abroad.
One commenter from the Conservative Party criticized this measure as “another incremental attack on our own working men and women”, citing concerns issued by the Gratish Commerce Institute, a right-wing research NGO, that Gratish fisheries would be unable to compete under the tariff cut.
The Communist Party of Gratiskov released a letter earlier this week characterizing the Socialist and Labour parties as “the left wing of the Liberals”, drawing attention to what they criticize as excessive trade liberalization in recent years.
The agreement is set to enter into effect in July of 2021.’
Order for the Modernization of the Qui Latinean army (PT2):
Qui Latine is undergoing military modernization. In the process, the logistics department will be tended to just as well, specifically with a new Ikha design. The Ikha usually takes on an infantry mobilization role, but with the new design, it will be smaller to fill the new designation; That role is recon and weapons deployment, it'll scout and bring either mortars or Anti-Tank weapons into battle. For the design, Aldhidiya and Sahra Alnn will compete for a spot. Though unlikely, the winner may receive a large loan to continue designing for the Qui Latinean military.
Two Protestors Arrested for Trespassing
A National Police spokesperson has confirmed that about two hours ago, a teenager has been arrested after being caught trespassing onto the grounds of the Vultesian Embassy during a protest against Vultesian mistreatment of the LGBTQ+ community and the slaying of two teenage LGBTQ+ rights protestors in Wellsenfaile.
The teenager was sighted being escorted by a group of National Policemen, masked as to hide their identity.
The identity of the teenager has been withheld by police as it is not legal in Gassasinia to publicise the identity of persons involved in court proceedings without the consent of courts or persons involved, or the justification of public interest.
The National Police has requested that protestors main civil and lawful while exercising their right to protest.
Degeneracy & Disruption
21/03/21 - Saltstil, Vultesia
Brought to you, by V24 News
The office of the First Citizen, Felics Basztyn, has today released a brief statement pertaining to the developing situation in the Wellsenfaile .
In the paper, the Princeps commended the efficacy and response of the Wellsenfailen authorities, in breaking up a riot of so called 'LGBT Activists', with an action that left two dead and around a dozen other vandals wounded.
'Their selfish and destructive habits' the First Citizen states 'are proof that no amount of pandering or tolerance will ever be enough for these deviants'. He went on to express his eagerness to meet with Wellsenfailen president, and assured all concerned that 'The scattered actions of a stateless clique of perverts, whose subversive and damaging influence can be felt from Gassasinia to the Wellsenfaile, will do little to discourage the principles of self-determination, sovereignty and friendship that our nations are built upon.'
Social media is also abuzz with rumours that the Princeps made contact with the leader of the Conservative Party in Gassasinia, who bravely called out police bias in his own nation, following similar protests.

Time: 10:00 AM
Captain Samuel Desolii looks up from his watch as he walks down the jetway of gate 5, pulling his luggage behind him.
He then looks out the windows of the jetway, staring out at the aircraft connected.
The brand new TA-2000-2 for Pan Anteria was sitting out on the parking spot, awaiting in the sunlight for the first scheduled flight
Sam walks onto the aircraft, stepping through the door and into the cabin, looking down the length of the fuselage, flight attendants were tidying up the final bits of the aircraft
First Officer James Siselina: "Good Morning Captain!"
Captain Samuel Desolii: "Ciao James! Everything set up so far?"
First Officer James Siselina: "Mhm, talked to the flight crew, calculated the schedule, we should be right on time for the departure at noon"
Captain Samuel Desolii: "Perfect, Perfect. Shall we go get ready for the ceremony?"
First Officer James Siselina: "Absolutely."
Captain Samuel Desolii: "Sounds good, Im gonna put my bag away and then raise the nose for the pictures. Meet you and the crew back in the terminal."

Conservative Party Leader Responds to Accusations
Accusations that the leader of the People's Action Party - also known as the Conservative Party - Michael Helu MP corresponded with the Princeps has been promptly denied on social media.
Mr. Helu MP stated on social media - "There are rumours that I have corresponded Princeps Felics Basztyn. These are not true. The People's Action Party of Gassasinia stands for an open democracy based on unalienable fundamental rights in line with Gassasinian values. It is not the state's responsibility to pick and choose who can exercise their right to protest. Likewise, it is not the state's responsibility to dictate the relations between two consenting adults."
An anonymous spokesperson from the Gassasinian National Police has responded to reporters, stating that despite calls from certain LGBTQ+ activists to investigate Michael Helu MP for collusion, there is "no evidence of any correspondence with Mr. Basztyn that would constitute collusion. As such, we do not believe we have any solid basis to investigate such accusations."
The Gassasinian National Police has reiterated that it is doing its' best to ensure the orderly procession of protests outside the embassy, and to ensure the safety of protesters and embassy staff alike, highlighting that protests have as of current remained orderly and cooperative with police.
The forces of the allied Southern Division (SoDiv), comprising of Sekidean Union troops, and spearheaded by a joint Vulto-Kentalian armoured brigade, have arrived on the outskirts of Steffany-El-Aziz, capital of Shauntellerine 'state'.
Now encircling the city, alongside Sekidean Union troops of North Division (NorDiv), our brave servicemen have begun the final assault on the enemy's crumbling defensive circuits. With overwhelming air and artillery support, superior technology and the Vultesian spirit, the end is now in sight for the enemies of the Principate!
Flames and Fury
Another round of protests happened today with nearly half a million people protesting around Wellsenfaile with the biggest in Dexterfield. Along with the LGBTQ+ community, many activists and the opposition party joined the protest. Many are angry about Telsruk Haven's visit to Vultesia with prominent LGBTQ+ activist Gara Sevulai saying that Vultesia are "the green killers". She also said that Wellsenfaile is not what it seems and said that the LGBTQ+ community have been betrayed by a tyrant.
In Dexterfield the protest started at dawn and they marched from Laigo park to the Vultesian embassy only to stopped by riot police. As they tried to go through them gunshots could be heard and screams everywhere but it was hard to see because of all the tear gas. Footage shows many arrested with wounds to their bodies with many traumatized. Many of the protesters hurled stones and even grenades at the police which after that police heavily retaliated. Many who fled the scene have shown main TV news channel Maisaz 1 footage of what happened.
Wellsenfaile Emergency Health Service has said that about 15 people were killed with hundreds in hospital. Head of Dexterfield Police Vewrt Afver has said in a statement that 2 police officers had died due to injuries sustained in the protest. He also defended how the police handled the protest saying "it was necessary for our officers as they were defending themselves against these idiots. Our officers handled the situation really well." About 113 people have been arrested.
Around the other cities in Wellsenfaile protesters attacked state-owned companies with riot police showing no mercy. About 11 people were killed with about 347 people arrested. 186 shops/factories were attacked with about 870 other shops/factories closing temporarily in fear of the tension.
Telsruk Haven is to give a speech regarding all of this in a few hours. The only thing that is certain is that Wellsenfaile is divided, very divided.
Wow things have escalated here quickly. I wonder how the rest of the world will react to the events of this day.
V24 News Website Blocked in Gassasinia
The Communications and Cybersecurity Agency of Gassasinia has confirmed that earlier this morning the Vultesian state news website V24 News was blocked for visitors originating from Gassasinia.

It was deemed that these comments violated the Telecommunications Act 1991 which makes it a criminal offence to telecommunications or network services to spread material or speech which is discriminatory, offensive or hateful in nature.
The Royal Gassasinian Civil Liberties Union has submitted an official protest, stating that "Regardless of who you are or how offensive the rhetoric, freedom of speech is a right which is generally held in liberal democratic nations to be irreproachable."
