ISC Congressional Chamber


The cases brought to the Congress were statistical and detailed; revealing that the Kingdom of Jaragupta had failed to bypass hitherto existing quasi-judicial standards for personal freedoms. Ultimately, the case for intervention on facets of the first account, that is to say, persecution against the proletariat, could be summarized into a few facets, namely:


  • That the Kingdom employs an autocratic, semi-feudal political playing-field, meaning that advocates for Human Rights and worker tripartition cannot make tangible resolutions through traditional politics. Mr. Mahil testifies to the clamp-downs of activists on the island, forcing many to take radical stances. Jiang Xuegang then backs this with a list accounting for all Jaraguptan parties, groups, and institutions that have either been crossed-off as terroristic in nature by the officiated government and are officially barred from running, and parties, groups, and institutions, that are persecuted constantly hitherto through a variety of subversive ways.
  • That the Kingdom is backed by several foreign subsidiaries and private companies who actively cooperate with constituents of government for the sake of corporate-based gain. Jiang Xuegang presents a list of companies categorized into those with proof of active extrajudicial cooperation with the state in conducting paracivillian operations (illegal arms trades, unregulated work conditions, etc.) and those without proof, but with a sufficient amount of whistleblowers to testify otherwise. Mr. Mahil's own employers turned-up on the latter list, and as a whistleblower, a bias to pin blame and illustrate the atrocities were put on them specifically. However, the report remained inclusive of other such atrocities with other such factors to blame.
  • That the Kingdom has engaged in several clamp-downs through gendarmerie subversion of civil protests and rights, tangible through evidence of reports, videos, and personal accounts. Varying from officials appropriating agrarian land from locals for the benefit of the elitist state-monopoly to accounts of government-sanctioned assassinations, the final point was mostly miscellaneous; a categorization to suffice enough evidence of a shadow despotic government running a democracy-for-show.

The gong was about to sound once more to conclude the report, signaling an intermission. Earlier, Jiang had suggested that other Congressional officials say their peace on the matter before resuming the session to the second account after the recess; involving more precisely, the political factors justifying the Jaraguptan Kingdom as that of non-democratic and how the system that workers could not be emancipated through their traditional politics worked in practice.

But before a break could be granted, a character that seemed silent so far during the proceedings, took themself into the limelight. It seemed Jiang was ahead of himself, as someone was eager. Noticing this, Jiang hushed Mahil's mid-concluding remarks. The two morphed their attention into intrigue.

"I see that the Honorable Representative Valthor Ormurssen has signaled he wishes to speak. We shall yield the floor momentarily for his questions or rebuttal."

ISC Congressional Chamber
Bratislava, Ressia


Representative Valthor Ormurssen had arrived around the same time that most of the other representatives and observers were filling in the space. He had set up his compact desk the way he wanted within the first day of arriving within the country. So this wasn’t his first time in the Congressional chambers, but he was still impressed every time he looked upon the ornate walls, the domed ceiling, and the painted scenes of revolutionary triumph that overlaid it all.

He listened as Party Secretary Xuegang spoke, then brought in his ‘special pet’, the Jaraguptan miner. It very much amused him, knowing what he already knew of the situation, that they were downplaying the ethnic division aspect to play up the universal class strife that was often the theme of Marxist rhetoric. He had read the dossier that had been handed out by Xuegang’s aides. It supported the same viewpoint that was being vocalized today.

He also had another report, this one issued only to him courtesy of the RLO, the YSR’s security agency, and with some contributed intel from the CID, the Cardwithian Intelligence Directorate.
It addressed several issues that might come up in the Congress, but that of Jaragupta and their call for assistance from the ISVC featured prominently in the report.

It talked about the corrupt monarchy, a weak military, but an unfortunately weaker leftist insurgent group. Then there was the ethnic division almost perfectly split between the Hamikhs and Tamars, which on the face of it, also looked much like a religious influenced feud between Sikhs and Hindus, if you didn’t count the slightly complex factor of the atheistic HDLF. There were some detractors to sending the ISVC to get involved, and he intended to bring them up as soon as the very scripted, rhetorical rallying speech was done.

He knew that the government back in Arkjelstad would likely support intervention, but as it wasn’t really on their radar yet, but for probably a couple departments in the RLO, he would risk the slap on the hand for playing devil’s advocate and challenging the popular opinion.

As the special Hamikh pet of the Pan-Asians wound down, Valthor prepared.

Jiang recognized him after he had flicked the orange signal lamp on his desk several times and raised his hand. Maybe a bit excessive.
"I see that the Honorable Representative Valthor Ormurssen has signaled he wishes to speak. We shall yield the floor momentarily for his questions or rebuttal."

“Thank you for yielding, Mr. Party Secretary. I ask for the floor to address the comments of yourself and the honorable Mr. Esharveer Mahil, our Jaraguptan friend that has taken refuge in the Pan-Asian States.”

He turned from the dais to address the rest of the Congress around and behind him.
“Thank you all for being here and making me confident in our purpose. We are sure to do the work of the people today. I am Valthor Ormurssen, Representative of the Socialist Party of the Yellow Star Republic…” He cleared his throat,
“I give Mr. Mahil much respect, and I know that myself and the rest of the Congress empathize with what you and your people have been through. My people too have been through hardships, when an imperialist nation pushed us to pre-emptively invade them and the rest of the region reacted by devastating our country.” A slight revisionist’s take on events of the Northern Tavlyrian War. The YSR never admitted they were the aggressors in that war or to the many excesses visited upon Glisandia during it.
“We have all been through our trials...What I say next might be unpopular, but it must be interjected into the debate.
What is it that we hope to gain by interfering in the internecine warfare of an impoverished Wishtonian monarchy? How far would we all go to help to liberate this island nation? Some of us have the resources of nations, but some of us only the manpower of outlawed parties. The resources that are there on the islands are assumed to be claimed by the imperialist powers that back Jaragupta. They have the technology and the materials to tap into them. But so do many of us. The cost of intervention has to be recouped somehow...So are we simply becoming capitalists and claiming resources like all the others, in payment for the incidental liberation of the Hamikh people?”

Ormurssen surveyed his audience,
“How many lives would we sacrifice for what seems to me to be more of an ethnic war than an ideological one? These are questions that need to be asked, if we are to be honest with ourselves. This is the reality that must be faced when we answer the call to arms to land on foreign shores in the name of world socialism. I understand, as do we all that that is part of the purpose of this organization, after all, but we have look at the cost and the effect that such actions might have. Are we really accomplishing something so moral and justified?

Let me extrapolate just a bit further. When these foreign supporters of the Jaraguptan Rajah throw their might behind him and try to crush our attempts to support the lower classes, are we ready to rush in more troops and to escalate to every point that our opponents might? Are we ready for full out war?”
Valthor took one last pause.
“I thank you for hearing me out and I hope you do not equate my doubts as calling our righteous cause into question, but I feel that we need to be clear of what we want to accomplish, if we are to commit to such a cause no matter the cost. Thank you, comrades. I surrender the floor to those distinguished representatives that I see standing up to counter me.”

The Yellowsian sat down to signify the end to his counter argument.

Fact of the matter was, Valthor really just wanted to test the waters and see who fell where when the chips really started to hit the table, to borrow a popular Western saying he liked. It was obvious that the Pan-Asiatic States and to a lesser extent, the Cardwith Islands, were pushing for this intervention by the ISVC, but he wanted to know the stance of the other constituent parties of the Congress. In the end, he had no doubt that the Congress would approve of intervention. They had been itching for any excuse to put the ISVC to war, and there had been many. There was no more perfect event that would enable the leftist juggernaut to go to war than Jaragupta, but war had an odd way of consuming those who thought they could control the fire.




Up in the gallery, near the observers, sat a fellow Yellowsian national of Ormurssen. He went simply by the name of Vilgan, despite what his passport said that he had used to get through Ressian customs. He had used similar credentials to gain access into the Congressional chamber. His presence was unknown to Ormurssen. He was an officer of the RLO security service and his main mission was to keep an eye on Ormurssen and make sure that he towed the party line. It was a mission given to him by the RLO Director, via the Director General, Gerta Hildgursdottir herself, the leader of the YSR.

Any hope he might have had of a cushy, boring tenure in Bratislava was dashed the very first day of the Congress as he heard Ormurssen speak. He was obligated to report this back to Arkjelstad and he knew the response would not be positive. Ormurssen had to know how this would affect his relationship with his superiors back home, yet he still carried on as if, due to the lack of international media, no other Yellowsian would hear of his challenge.

The YSR supported the ISC and any venture that the revolutionary interventionist arm of the ISVC might be tasked to undertake, including Jaragupta, if it should come to pass. Ormurssen’s questioning of the ISC Central Committee was not sanctioned from the capital, but time would tell if it would be tolerated. Vilgan didn’t need to take notes, as his memory as an intelligence officer was impeccable, yet he did record it with his phone just to have the first hand version for the record.

Eleni and Lartæ sat through Esharveer Mahil's presentation with barely suppressed disgust. Each of them took a moment at some point to look down and silently retch internally, or to look at each other sadly and sort of visually back each other up. It was an utterly disguting and immoral shitheap, the Jaragupta that had been described in the testimony and the report.

We have to get rid of these fuckers, Lartæ thought. No-brainer.

When Valthor Ormurssen took the floor, he asked several uncomfortable but nevertheless necessary questions. The points about ethnic divisions and goals for intervention needed to be addressed and debated. However, Eleni was bothered by one of his points. After he finished, she stood up to ask for the word.

Having been granted, she spoke: "Comrade Valthor Ormurssen, your contributions are much appreciated and the points you have raised must be addressed. I want to remark on the question you made on the cost of intervention."

She took a pause to breathe. Then, without rancour or a change of tone in her voice, she continued. "Presuming we intervene in Jaragupta, we are not doing so to seize control of their resources. As you said, that would make us no better than the capitalists we are here to fight against. We can sustain such an intervention with our existing budgets, and make contingency plans for how to budget it beyond an initial deployment based on the decisions of the Congress."

She glanced around the chamber at the Congress for a second.

"All I can say is that, presuming the intervention is carried out successfully, the resources of Jaragupta will belong to the people of Jaragupta, in common. Anything else would be a betrayal of our principles."

"Thank you," she said, and sat down.

Ambassador Geréx sat in silence, thinking hard. If one looked closely, they would be able to see his eyes darting around as all this information was absorbed and sorted into various databases, that were constantly being transmitted back to Nova Seviya. Finally, he nodded, standing slowly and preparing to speak. His voice was deep, and only slightly accented, yet there was something not quite natural about him. “Ladies, Gentlemen. Comrades of the Revolution. The Gylian ambassador speaks the truth, there is no question of profit for us to ask. We are not immoral capitalists, who think with their wallets. No, the resources of the People belong to the People, and we are not to take them. However, a cost analysis must be taken-that of the lives we would spend in freeing the People, and the possibility that these corporations go running back to their respective governments, and we get bogged down in war, unable to fulfill our obligations to oppressed People everywhere. So, I would propose two roads. The first bloodless, although I myself am not opposed to the spilling of blood. On this path, we outspend these corporations, and build up the infrastructure of Jaragupta. Bribe the government, cancel their trade deals, close them off. Raise taxes so much that investment becomes unprofitable. Increase health and safety standards for imports. Make it as hard as possible to come, but more than that, make them not want to.

The other way may be denounced by some as Imperialism, but to protect the Revolution of Jaragupta, force will be necessary. And thus, our time there should be limited, and the limitations agreed upon before we embark, to ensure that the People’s resources remain in the hands of the People.

Cacile Ngomane had arrived, along with a small entourage, in Bratislava a week before the first session. Unlike several of the representatives and observers, she and her colleagues in the Mubatan Freedom Movement were from one of the outlawed parties in the Republic of Mubata. They were in constant struggle for the last 50+ years since the independence of Mubata to overthrow the nationalists led by the Fazembe dynasty. They had had upswings and very low times, when it looked as if the end was near and government forces were about to stomp them out of existence. They had gone through many leaders, and were now rallying back from a large defeat at the hands of the Tizi dominated Mubatan Army where one of the founders, Chigama Dzogara, and leader at the time, as well as much of the ruling MFM Council were surrounded and wiped out along with hundreds of fighters. For 3 long years, they had worked to rebuild from that crushing defeat, and now, under the leadership of Simba Dzogara, son of Chigama, they were resurgent and retaking ground in the East, as well as the center of Mubata.

It was hers, as well as the hope of many, that ISVC troops would be able to support the MFM in taking their nation back, and maybe help to rally other tribal folk to the cause who saw the MFM as merely a tool of Zama nationalists to put the country under the rule of the most numerous tribe. Many in the Republic still didn't trust either the Tizi-Fazembe run regime or the MFM.

Much of that was immaterial to the day's discussion in the Congressional Chamber...Or was it? Discussion was focused on aiding an ethnic group's Marxist rebel force, the HDLF, against their oppressors, the Tamar dominated monarchial government of Jaragupta. The parallels were all over the place and hard to ignore. There was no question where the MFM fell in the debate.
She lit her buzzer at her desk and also stood up to be recognized.

"Thank you. I am Cacile Ngomane from the Mubatan Freedom Movement. I would like to say that we in the MFM are also in support of the HDLF and the Hamikh people in their struggle for freedom. There is no question to the cost, but I realize that it is ironic that I might say such, considering that the MFM does not have the resources to contribute much to the ISVC budget. What we do have is manpower and know how and that is what we will give to the cause of liberation of Jaragupta. And yes, it is in the unabashed hope that Mubata's turn will be next in line for liberation.

To address Representative Geréx's proposal for economic war, I would have to say that I am not sure that it would be effectual or that many nations beyond the ISC would care to enforce such sanctions. Do many nations of the ISC even currently conduct commerce with the Kingdom of Jaragupta? I should think not, but I do not know for certain. I think it is a long slow path that will remain unfulfilled and we must act in a quicker manner in order to see change come to this island nation.

I urge you to listen to Mr. Mahil, Party Secretary Xuegang and to dismiss the naysayers..." She wouldn't call out Ormurssen by name, as she did have respect for him in most matters. "The path is clear, so why should we muddy it with too much talk?"
She left off with that question and sat back down, ceding the floor to the next speaker.

Chairman Trevor Obelanka saw that they needed to get things back to the main presentation. He saw that there were quite a few other representatives that wanted to speak, and rather than being frustrated, it made him proud. He took the next turn and addressed the Chamber.
"I would like to get back to Mr. Mahil and the Party Secretary, as I don't think they were quite done with their proposition for revolutionary action. Before we do that, I want to say first, thank you to the fine representatives from the Yellow Star Republic, Gylias, Kowani and Mubata for making their points. I am so glad that we have so many ready to speak and work towards furthering our causes. It gives us hope to see that this organization is lively and willing to come together to discuss just how we can spread the message of world socialism, and what that message should be.

Now, I understand that Representative Ormurssen had some valid points to consider in us not making a hasty decision. I appreciate that as do us all, I should think. What I can say is this, a stand must be made somewhere, and I cannot think of a better place to start, as we do need to start somewhere. The Imperialists are sure that we will let another local rebellion die out, as so many have in the past, as capitalist resources are diverted to shut down such dissension. Perhaps...perhaps we can make them take notice and not assume that they can always have their way when it comes to keeping down the proletariat and subverting freedoms of those that labor the land for the good of all. Let us remember that we have done it before. Were it not for ISVC support for the Cardwith Islands during our independence struggle, I would not be standing here before you. We are ready to give back and bring up the next struggling group of people into the greater fabric of socialist freedom. Let it be known that the United Freedom Front of the Cardwith Islands supports intervention in Jaragupta and support for the Hamikh Democratic Liberation Front."
He held out for a smattering of applause.
"Now...let's give the floor back to the Party Secretary and to Mr. Mahil to continue on."

The Party Secretary had taken note of all the points recited in front of the international constituency. He was surprised with the Yellowsian resistance to the ethos, but unfortunately, the delegate ultimately raised a point of interest. As much as it was inevitable that the declaration would pass, accords of war would need to be settled before the quasi-judicial body escalated the situation in Jaragupta.

A sensation of discord made Eshraveer uneasy. He looked at Xuegang with an expecting and disoriented stare.

Jiang Xuegang humbly approached the podium, and delivered his own opinion.

"Members of the Congress, I do believe that the points aforementioned bear weight, but I believe that the delegation from Gylias was correct in their analysis of the political climate. I beg to extrapolate further as well.

The ethnic divisions in the Jaraguptan islands are not the concern of this Congress per se, yet we should fundamentally be concerned with it. It is imperative that we bear in mind that all ethnic divisions throughout the history of the world are divisions caused by economic divide. Our goal, as Socialists, is to eliminate this economic divide. Since, in our participation of this Congressional assembly, do we not all in fact, fight to ensure that no person in any corner of the world is labeled as 'illegal', 'different', or 'inferior'? We cannot deny the fact that we are all, fundamentally, anti-racist as well.

That is not to say that we should infringe upon the sovereignty of a new Jaraguptan society to consider whether one government action is racist or not. I have my full confidence in the ability of current Marxist parties to determine their independent and responsible development of Socialistic economic forces, should they be put into power.

Thus, this brings me to my next point of interest, and that is, that through the course of our discourse, we must set parameters on what should be considered a direct infringement of Jaraguptan sovereignty and what should not. We must divulge into the logistics of the new society which we will create in putting Marxist powers into play in Jaragupta. This I believe, can best be accomplished by having a representative of the Marxist groups in the nation actively involved with the proceedings of this governing Congress.

Whilst we can discuss finer details on the proceedings this congress will be taking after the presentation of the two accounts by the Pan-Asiatic States to merit intervention, and after this Congress has cast a vote to do so, should we proceed with our initiatives in the first place, I ensure the constituency that I personally will take every measure to ensure that international security and the interests of the majority of the world powers in this Congress does not infringe upon the basic guarantees of independence that merits our Socialist liberation of Jaragupta.

To do all that, however, we must provide the world stage with a reasonable justification for our endeavors. We must declare the current Jaraguptan imperial rule to be one that does not represent the best interests of its people, as it is what it is. To this end, we continue our assessment.

If no further inquisitions or points of clarification thus far will be put unto the floor of this assembly, I give the floor to Mr. Mahil. We thank both the proposing and opposing delegations with utmost respect for their opinions."

Chairman Obelanka stood up, getting Jiang's attention.
"Hear, hear. I agree with Party Secretary Xuegang's assessment. I did have one point of inquiry, and I believe it may be more for Mr. Mahil than you, Jiang...Mr. Mahil, are you a representative of one of the Marxist organizations in your nation, or affiliated with them at all? If I missed that information, I apologize."

Eshraveer stood up and took his place at the podium one more time and responded.

"Your inquiry is appropriate, Chairman. I did make it clear at the very beginning of this deliberation that I am not associated with one or any political group in my country, neither militant nor pacifist; neither capitalistic nor communistic in intent. However, given my mistreatment, I must admit--I now hold some semblance of sentiment."

ISC Congressional Chamber


After the brief deliberations by Congressional members, came the more practical second account of the case; presented in the same fashion as the first. Here, more precise accounts of instability between the Jaraguptan government and its own people were presented.

Jiang Xuegang hinted that it would only be a matter of time until the house of cards came falling-down. He argued, however, that without the guidance of an organization to ensure the integrity of the new state, the local government would easily fall into disarray due to racial and political infighting.

Beyond that as well, there were the economic issues with revolutions that had to be addressed and deliberated by the Congress. Too many times in history, has it occurred, that Communists have created a power vacuum in their trail. What follows would either be complete annihilation of the already declining economy after "countries of the bourgeois" pulled their resources out of such countries, and what ensues that are either despotic Frankenstein amalgamations of dystopian quasicapitalist 'socialism' or total counterrevolutionary takeover.

"We must keep in mind, members of the house, that we should ensure that our intervention in the nation of Jaragupta, should create more good than harm; while also preserving the national rights of the people to govern themselves through the blessings of a workers' democracy. For I would rather let all bad luck befall us, rather than install, not the dictatorship of the proletariat, but the dictatorship of a new monarch under a different crown.", expressed the Pan-Asiatic delegate.

The instability and low political freedom in the Kingdom was more than evident, with cases such as:


  • In 2011, 60 reporters went missing after covering a story about city corruption in Abilek. The case remains inconclusive, and the families of the victims have not stayed quiet about it. This supersedes the presupposition of the proposition that the 'democratic' judiciary of the Kingdom is essentially defunct.
  • Multiple attempts by international corporations to collaborate with the Kingdom authorities in repressing agitators and the media. Throughout two decades of this millennia, more than enough cases have been filed reporting several such corporations for fraud and exploitation, from common workers. More than half of such workers have gone missing or found deceased as well. This has led to a term used by the locals, wherein missing persons are called "wreckages"; comparing the dead bodies of those who oppose the regime to shipwrecks, as the locals often have to fish them out of rivers, ponds, and sewers.
  • Three-way clashes between the Hamikh Nationalist Liberation Army, Hamikh Democratic Liberation Front, and the Jaraguptan Armed Forces which have been reported to have claimed the lives of thousands as is. The HNLA wish to liberate the Hamikh people under their Sikh flag. The HDLF, a Marxist Hamikh group that has grown in popularity over the years. (While it should be noted that the HNLA and HDLF have worked together against the monarchy and government on occasion, more often they are at odds, due to differing ideologies and devotion or lack of devotion to the Sikh faith in the case of the HDLF. Skirmishes have been known to happen across the archipelago, and thus, it remains proper, Party Secretary Jiang thought, to call it a Three-way clash.)

Therefore, Xuegang presented, the objectives of the International Socialist Congress, as noted previously, should be clearly defined and strictly followed. The directives, intentions, and, as much as possible without compromising mission security, progress of the Congress in completing such objectives, should be clearly announced, published, and promulgated to the general public.

If an intervention is in order, argued Xuegang, then the arbitrary nature of the Congress should be made as clear as possible. Otherwise, not only will covert action damage the reputation of the young alliance, branding it as a covert endeavor to subdue the sovereignty of nations, but it will also lead to distrust by the local population; which may in turn lead them to disassociate with the members of the Congress, and start a civil war.

Xuegang also discussed the aforementioned representation of the HDLF, but also asked the Congress what they thought about also adapting an HNLA representative. It would be an unfortunate compromise, in his own opinion, but it may be necessary.

"We must focus on intrinsic issues before extrinsic ones. I understand this. The Yellowsian commentary on the situation, as I've said, stands.

Nevertheless, what we need are a list of objectives for ourselves, the Kingdom in power, and the rising Marxist state we will create, which we will follow through; and the point on whether or not we will recognize the HNLA as a legitimate independence faction is included in this list. I want to settle this peacefully and democratically. My delegation has prepared these points for everyone's satisfaction; and I want to make it clear that these points are based on the feelings of the Pan-Asiatic delegation towards the situation and that this is NOT final.

Do also note that these objectives will be forwarded to the general media of all of your nations, as well as other foreign media abroad; it will be the official position of the International Socialist Congress on the proceedings in Jaragupta. The assembly, deliberation, and declaration of these points will have concluded this session on intervention in Jaragupta. These are more of guidelines than specifics on the operation. Again, I cannot stress the importance of this document to all the actors involved in this case.

We will deliberate on these points one by one, especially if there are contentions, especially regarding the issue of whether or not to represent the HNLA. If there are no contentions, we will also welcome additions. Once all has been said, we will cast a vote in favor of or opposing the proposition entirely. Please, do not be afraid to speak your mind, but remember to keep it brief, inclusive, decisive, on-point, and respectful to your comrades around you.

A copy of these demands can be found in the portfolio we have handed out. Nevertheless, I will read them aloud; especially for any handicapped observers or members of this assembly. These points, vaguely, are as follows:"




JOINT DECLARATION OF THE COUNTRIES OF THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIALIST CONGRESS TO THE KINGDOM OF JARAGUPTA AND ITS CITIZENS:

Keeping to the commitments of the International Socialist Congress to the belief of solidarity in the face of harassment and violations to the integral liberties of the individual to lead a life of his or her choosing, the first resolution of this assembly is aimed at pursuing the torch of justice in the darkness of despotism.

The history of the Kingdom of Jaragupta has not been without its ups and downs under tyrants and servants of the people; and this assembly makes it clear that the intentions of the Socilaist world are entirely that of empowering the Jaraguptan identity rather than replacing it with a majoritarian puppet of the constituents of this Congress, as can be derived from the experiences of other quasijudicial and quasilegislative agencies in their endeavors to pursue war through ideological factions. The International Socialist Congress claims no intentions for neo-colonialism, as we stand united under the purpose of empowering the people of Jaragupta against those who would dis-empower them.

The ultimate objective of the deliberation which will have commenced to ratify this edict will have been to allow the Jaraguptan to truly decide matters of the state to themselves: to truly allow them to determine their national aspirations. The International Socialist Congress will, ultimately, bring life back to the democratic system of the Jaraguptan masses. That is the sworn objective of the collaboration of this congregation.

  1. The countries of the International Socialist Congress have agreed to find the Kingdom of Jaragupta to be a farce representation of the nation's ideals for self-governance, due to assertions by its people and overwhelming evidence beyond the realm of doubt to conclude the democratic system in Jaragupta to be defunct. The separation of powers have been proven to be bypassed by an increasingly powerful executive branch of government.
  2. The countries of the International Socialist Congress have agreed to find the Kingdom of Jaragupta guilty of crimes against humanity deemed in violation of the fundamental rights of its citizens by exploiting both their economic and physical endurance as human beings due to evidence supported by numerous members of the nation, as whistleblowers, beyond the realm of doubt in their testimony, and pragmatic accounts suggesting them to be true.
  3. The countries of the International Socialist Congress have agreed to find the Kingdom of Jaragupta unstable in their governance, and, working in the best interests of the citizens of Jaragupta, this Congress recognizes the incapability of the current dicta to stabilize the national interests of freedom and prosperity by settling matters of unrest throughout the territories of the Kingdom of Jaragupta. This Congress finds the popular unrest a signature of the counter-dicta of the Jaraguptan masses to prefer a change of authority, unaddressed by the defunct democracy of the nation.

We would therefore demand the following effective immediately or risk diplomatic and political interference of this Congress in Jaragupta to secure the workers' welfare without the consultation of the elected government, under the presupposition of such government's malfunctioning:

  1. The political liberalization of the Kingdom of Jaragupta, the reinstation and representation of any political faction within the parliamentary of the Kingdom; including the Nationalist and Communist. We demand an end to all political suppression and any attempts by the Kingdom to silence the voices of its people, and an end to the illegal practices of the Jaraguptan government which can be considered un-democratic.
  2. An end to the rogue privatization of the nation's assets, as well as the designation of officials to investigate the reports found in the deliberation of the nation as indicated by the Congressional release. We demand an end to the national disregard for cassus belli. We demand justice for the oppressed workers of Jaragupta.
  3. The beginning of peace talks between the HNLA and the HDLF to be facilitated by the government without bias, a resolution to the civil strife within the nation and the general improvement of peoples' livelihoods. We abhor the Jaraguptan government's use of violence and all-out war to deal with its unrest. We demand reasonable amnesty with the rebels of Jaragupta.

If our demands are not acknowledged by the Kingdom of Jaragupta within the week, or we do not see reasonable efforts being made to fulfill such demands, this Congress has agreed to the use of violent and open war with the Kingdom. If actions for intervention are taken, the Congress will ensure the following, on behalf of the Jaraguptan non-combatants, who are the real men and women, unjustly treated by the regime, worthy to be serviced by our intervention:

  1. Assurance of the new Jaraguptan state's right to deliberate matters of national importance following any ensuing conflict. The countries of the International Socialist Congress have agreed to the creation of a political coalition between the HDLF and the HNLA which will first focus on the extermination of the government-in-power by means of a united front.
  2. Assurance of the International Socialist Congress' best interests to protect the well-being of the public involved in such a conflict before victory of the conflict itself. Humanitarian aid will be distributed to those who need it, and trials will occur by the hands of Jaraguptan judges, should an International Socialist Volunteer Corps combatant harm a non-combatant of the Jaraguptan nation.
  3. Assurance of the joint oversight of the HDLF and HNLA over the liberation of their country by giving both factions equal footing in representation within the International Socialist Congress to oversee military affairs, in cooperation with the International Socialist Volunteer Corps.
  4. Assurance of the leniency of all countries of the International Socialist Congress to stabilize but not interfere with the economic endeavors of a new Jaraguptan government in the event of one's creation.

We stand in solidarity with the People of Jaragupta all throughout this crisis, extending a helping hand to the

We therefore proclaim our sacred oath: Workers of the World, Unite!




Jiang Xuegang spoke with heavy breath. He knew that the Jaraguptan government would never agree to negotiate with Socialists. They had shown that in the past, and had left a trail of bodies every time they did. But that was the reason why his mandates for the Congress were so specific for the case of an intervention as well. If and when this gets to the media, all would have deduced the motive of the International Socialist Congress to provoke intervention anyway. And the Party Secretary, knew as well, for a fact, it would be carried-out eventually, somehow.

The floor was once again given to the Congress to speak their mind for any contention or revision to the text, as there was bound to be at least one.

Ambassador Geréx nodded his head, once, twice. The basic idea was good, although there were always unforeseen risks. “Ambassador, if I may speak. We are all well aware of the power of the forces of globalized capital. The exterior forces that prop up the State, those will have to be mollified. After all, if the situation of the Nation is as bad as you and your guest have so eloquently described, then the State cannot oppress the Nation alone. Now, it is assumed that the Capitalists that maintain the State would not dare to begin a global war over a small, insignificant island, and yet we cannot invade without pretext. Aware as one is of the hypocrisy of Capitalism when it suits its purposes, if we are to go in with naught beyond the defense of the Nation from the State on our lips, this Congress would soon find itself with a hundred recriminations.”

He paused, thinking, before clicking his tongue once. “Furthermore, assuming that we do win the war, we should prepare for rebellion and Xaos. The first, because we are indeed liberators, and yet we are still invaders. Unless we are building up the Nation while we invade it, we are to see nationalism. The much larger problem, however, is the ethnic divide. Whichever group is left on top in the new order is not going to dedicate itself to installing any form of socialism, but rather, hunting down everyone else.”

Rights are functionally just privileges society has deemed important.
