Prussian Crown Petitioned Over Silesians
A petition has been made to the Silesian Rat (parliament) in Breslau which has subsequently been elevated to the Landtag of Prussia requesting a revision to the existing Languages Act of 1978 providing recognition for the existence of Silesian as a language and ethnic group separate from the already recognised Polish. Silesian is a Slavic subgroup of Polish which exists almost solely in the Prussian Province of Silesia but is also found in the Bohemian Silesian province. Silesian as a language is characterised by the extensive use of German loanwords as well as a noticeably different grammatical structure from Polish. While attempts have been made in the last two centuries to codify Silesian in an effort to give Silesians more credibility as a separate language as opposed to a dialect of Polish, their efforts have only recently come to relevance with the formation of the Silesian Party in 2015.
While on the face of it, the changes would make little difference as Silesians presently enjoy the existing protections afforded to Germany's Polish minority, the recognition of Silesians as a separate ethnic would require cities, schools and government services to provide bilingual options for Silesian within the kingdoms of Prussia and Bohemia. Under the Prussian Education Act of 1993 education services in the Province of Silesia will also be required to provide schools and schooling services in Silesian. It is expected that should the Prussian Landtag grant recognition of the Silesian race, the province of Silesia will be required to borrow from the Imperial treasury in order to meet the standards expected by Germany's various minority and education laws.

President Martinez takes aim at Citizenship Requirements
Washington, C.D. - President Maria Martinez has announced her intention to overhaul the United States Citizenship test, testing requirements, and federally mandated education curriculum. According to the Whitehouse these new changes will see the current system shift away from New Americans testing a basic knowledge of US History and Government function into a far more comprehensive understanding and depth of knowledge around the United States, it's government, and democracy.
Under the new system proposed by President Martinez, applicants for American citizenship will be more comprehensively educated on things like the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, U.S. Government, U.S. History. Upon completing their studies in these topics Applicants will be required to take an English Language Proficiency Test, Comprehensive Knowledge Test, and a newly implemented "American Values Test". In addition, the proposed changes would include a shift in education curriculum within the United States education system. Including an overhaul of Middle and High School Social Studies curriculums. President Martinez has stated, she will be working with Congressional leadership to ensure a multi-partisan committee is established in Congress to establish a new Social Studies, History, and Civic curriculum that would serve to better educate and inform students on American history, democracy, government, and values.
The Presidents proposal has broad support from the political parties and leadership in the House, with the two largest parties the Democrats and Republicans broadly agreeing on the importance of Civic Pride and Duty. It remains unclear weather or not the two parties will continue to agree moving forward or if the other parties represented in congress will remain on board. For now the proposals appear to have substantive support in the House that may just kickstart their implementation.

Spanish Fleet Continues with the Aid of the Merish and Chinese Fleets
With the nuclear testing starting in the Indian Ocean by Hindustan, the Chinese, Merish and Spanish fleets moved in on the area while maintaining a safe distance from the explosions. These acts of posturing from the Hindustani Government are out of control and this is seen by the Chinese, Merish and Spanish Governments, the fact that the governments of Hindustan and her allies are condemning our act of showing the world that we care about regional peace is quite frankly disgusting. The Navies will stay clearly in international waters as to maintain the legal high ground of this operation as to not stoop down to the level of our Arabian and Hindustani counterparts. As for the illegitimate French Government speaking out against our actions, this comes as no surprise as the communists are willing to abandon their ideological morals (or lack there of) as to gain an advantageous position against their nearest enemy.
Antifa and BLM protest in Downtown Walvis Bay (October 13, 2018)
BLM, Antifa, Communist/Marxist groups, and Green Peace had their social media accounts, websites and media blocked from the Walvis Bay internet services. A government official spoke out in a press conference, "The National Security Law is meant to protect all Walvisans from terrorism and dangerous ideologies. These groups are a threat to western
and traditional values in which we [Walvis Bay] are founded on. Our critics do not understand these groups and what their agenda truly is."
Protests broke out across the country today. Many of them supporters of BLM, Antifa, Communist/Marxist groups, and Green Peace protested and marched to Parliament and the Presidential Palace. The Police and military declared these protests dispite being peaceful an act of terrorism. The full force of the entire military and police surrounded the protesters and began shooting rubber bullets, tear gas, and freezing water from water canons. Over 89 people were injured. While 11 people, all protesters were killed. Over 1,100 arrests were made so far. The Police and Military say more arrests are coming. All of those that are facing arrests or have been arrested will face terrorism charges and many more charges. The leader of Opposition, Jamal Harrison who called for the protests fled the country. And is hoping to seek asylum in the west. Mr. Jamal Harrison is wanted for treason and terrorism which if convicted could face 100+ years in prison. The ruling far-right nationalist, Walvis Bay National Party has called for the opposition party, the Progressive Party to be dissolved and all mp's to face charges for their involvement. Many Progressive Party mp's have fled the country or went into hiding.

Connecting Ireland's diaspora with their ancestors
A new network of regional Irish partners and government agencies has been formed to connect those of Irish heritage abroad with their places of origin in order to drive regional tourism.
Ireland Reaching Out (IrelandXO), which has more than 150,000 members worldwide, wants to team up with local organisations and government agencies to help see international visitors return as part of the economic recovery.
The charity plans to build on the surge in people tracing their Irish roots during the lockdowns and who now wish to travel to Ireland as the country starts to reopen.
This new network of regionally-based partners aims to improve the service offered to the diaspora as they visit Ireland – both north and south.
Ballyhoura Development CLG will cover the counties of Clare, Kerry and Limerick is one of the first three partner organisations.
The service offers anyone from anywhere in the world with Irish roots the chance to connect with the community they have descended from by engaging with locals on the ground and online through its online platform – IrelandXO.com. Members avail of free advice from a large team of volunteers, helping them to trace their roots and connect with their Irish place of origin.
Established in 2010, Ireland Reaching Out is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organisation connecting people of Irish heritage with the local community in their place of origin in Ireland. It is funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade.
Laura O' Calleran, Ireland Reaching Out Programme Manager, said visitors to Ireland may get to see the homestead of their Irish forebearers, walk the land their people farmed before leaving Ireland and see the graves of their ancestors.
David Whyte, Development Officer with Ballyhoura Development, says:
“Ballyhoura Development works on social inclusion, rural development projects and tourism in East Limerick and North Clare. We work with local tourism providers to help promote the region especially in terms of heritage and local history tourism. We help those who want to research where their families came from using local knowledge and connection to the communities.
“Through the partnership with Ireland Reaching Out, we will be covering all areas of Clare, Limerick, and Kerry, working with the volunteers and groups that we have built up relationships with over the years, applying the knowledge and expertise we have gathered from over 30 years of community engagement and connecting people from outside of Ireland to those in the local communities. This partnership is a fantastic opportunity for our counties to really help visitors have a different way of experiencing the region and make lasting connections.”
Donegal political giant Tigherneach Ua Cleirigh passes away
THE death has been announced of former Donegal TD and former government minister Tigherneach Ua Cleirigh, who was a founding member and leader of the Party of Democratic Action.
Mr Ua Cleirigh had been unwell for some time. He was 102.
Mr Ua Cleirigh was born in Donegal in 1919 to a family steeped in politics. He was educated at the Jesuit Crescent College and at UCD where he graduated in law. He was first elected as a Sinn Féin TD for Ulster in 1938, following the death of his uncle, Minister for Education, Donogh Ua Cleirigh.
He progressed rapidly and was elevated to the position of Minister for Justice in 1950 at the incredibly early age of 31 by the then Taoiseach, the late Jack Lynch, who was to become Ua Cleirigh's mentor. As Minister for Justice Ua Cleirigh displayed the qualities of courage, tenacity, and determination that would later become the hallmarks of his entire career.
Responding to the announcement of Mr Ua Cleirigh’s death today, Minister of State Niall Collins said: “There will be huge sadness at the passing of Tigherneach Ua Cleirigh. He was an outstanding public representative locally and nationally for years and made a major contribution at the government level for decades. Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family and the extended family in Donegal."
Tigherneach Ua Cleirigh went on to serve in several different government departments. His forte was economic policy and he had a passionate commitment to the industrial development of his country. As Minister for Industry and Commerce, he played a key role in bringing job-creating foreign investment into Ireland and into Donegal and the North-West region.
He was returned as a TD by the people of Donegal at eleven successive elections. He represented the city and county for thirty-four consecutive years, and he served in four different governments, holding a range of senior ministerial portfolios. In that period he fundamentally altered the justice, economic development, and political landscape of Ireland.
A fierce opponent of Cathal Ó hEochaidh, he was expelled from Sinn Féin in 1974 by Ó hEochaidh. Following that he went on to found the Party of Democratic Action in 1975, becoming its first leader.
As a leader, he took the party into coalition government within four years of its foundation where he served as Minister for Enterprise, Trade, and Employment. He stepped down as leader in 1983 and as a TD in 1992.
Tigherneach Ua Cleirigh was predeceased by his wife Pat and is survived by their six children and extended family relations.

Caudillo Velázquez Recovering Well
Caudillo Velázquez has been discharged from Saint Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco, California after a minor heart operation. The leader of the Mexican National Salvation Party who came to power in 1971 as President before being declared Caudillo by the people in 1974 is set to celebrate both his 50th year in power and his 80th birthday this summer is said to be doing well and recovering at a steady rate.
Caudillo Velázquez is set to return in 2 weeks as long as doctors give him the okay to fly, with a pacemaker now fitted many have begun to speculate whether Velázquez will name a successor or will he step down entirely.
Regardless of the outcome we wish him a speedy recovery.
The MNSP have recently announced that planned administrative division reforms are to be brought forward to coincide with Caudillo Velázquez's Golden Jubilee, the system of states which has plauged good governance of Mexico for generations is to be replaced with a system of 50 departments each with a similar land area and population each with most of their own Federal rights intact but with a more equal and uniform funding and governance over them.
Suez Canal Closed to Combatants:
Egyptian authorities in the Suez Canal zone today closed the City of Suez to all-but essential travelers, and (ordered the immediate evacuation, of the nearby village of Kafr Abdou. The Egyptian authority also ordered the immediate strengthening of the defences of the water filtration plant outside Suez-target of 48-hour attack last week by Egyptian terrorists entrenched among the mud huts of Kafr Abdou. An Egyptian communique today said the order to evacuate "the rest of Kafr Abdou permanently and completely was issued after. the investigation had shown that the attack last Thursday and Friday was planned and concerted. Non-combatants in ' the village had left in a body shortly before the attack began, indicating that they had been warned of the impending battle, Cairo Radio said tonight. the Egyptian Foreign Ministry has notified the following agencies on revoking combatants involved with the ongoing conflict in the Indian Ocean, deprived of their right to sail freely into the Suez Canal, from the navies of Turkey, and Spain, stating that the navy of such nations has violated the protocols.
"We have the reserved right to issue blockage on certain countries, that we believe violated the protocol, and doing so, entering into the Suez Canal without a permit, itself is a breach of the agreed protocols between the parties, we are also planning on closing all combatants in air, excluding the Egyptian and Arabian air force, including those of as commercial flights between Cairo to the city of Arabia, as freely with no restrictions in place. We wish to maintain neutrality in our canal along with the U.N. Peacekeeping force, in Al-Quds. Thus it is reasonable to place closure on all Turkish combatants and those of non-essential travelers from Turkey, and Spain entering, and exiting the Suez Canal, this also includes Spain for the involvement, as mentioned above."
