About This Region

The Internationale is one of the oldest continuous leftist regions in NationStates, being founded in 2009. It is a non-roleplay region, welcoming serious leftists of all tendencies. Regional focus is oriented towards gameplay, as well as discussion of current events, leftist theory and practice. The Internationale Unites the Human Race!

    At Vote: Withdraw Embassies with TRCA

    To correct what I wrote above, some of their member seem to wish to add a form of interregional cooperation. A proposal is being made in that sense if I understand it correctly. If this is really the case before the end of our vote, I might change my vote to veto if it also notifies the will to have the means to go in the good direction.

    At Vote: Withdraw Embassies with TRCA

    I was all for, but they've changed their policies to make it clear about fashes. It still lacks apologies or consience of anything + real wish of interregional cooperation for other unsafe players outside of their speech I'd say. So I have not really made my mind.
  4. Sure. "To the leadership of The Revolutionary Communist Alliance (hereafter TRCA); We, the leadership of the NSLeft, have become concerned with the presence of reactionaries (such as fascists, nazbols, etc.) and persons previously banned from a number of our member regions, in TRCA. Being that many of our member regions share an embassy with your region, we are worried by this and the apparent laxness in ideological restrictions toward fascism in your region. We ask that you implement stricter ideological limits for the good of the leftists in your region as soon as possible, and remove the aforementioned reactionaries. Should this fail to pass, we will have no choice, but to collectively close embassies with your region until we see our request met. We do not wish to blacklist or attack your region, rather we are concerned for its wellbeing and the wellbeing of the good leftist comrades in that region In solidarity, The NSLeft Regional Representatives" Answer: "To the leadership of NSLeft; We have received and hear your complaint. However, we must turn down your demands. Through several votes and debates, here at the Revolutionary Communist Alliance our residents have decided they do not wish to restrict our people's freedom, such as the right to speak and convey their opinion, the right to simply be apart of a different community. Without people with differing ideologies we wouldn't have anyone to debate against about our beliefs, and we wouldn't be able to grow our intellect through these debates. However, that is not to say that we refuse to kick out nations that are obnoxious and exhibit hate speech. Nations which are aggressive, obnoxious, or openly racist, homophobic, etc. do get ejected and any nation which can be proven to be connected to a fascist region will get the same treatment. What good is leftist solidarity if the NSLeft community turns their collective backs to us because our residents refuse to implement laws that restrict the freedoms of our people? All that being said, we are completely open to further negotiation. Kind regards, The Revolutionary Communist Alliance Representatives of: The Shi Commune KentuckyFriedCommunism Caeraeaf Red HighValley Marxist Canada" Statement by our allies in The Communist Bloc on the issue: https://tcb.red/forum/topic/1289-statement-on-the-revolutionary-communist-alliance?page=1 You can also take a look at the current embassies being withdrawn in TRCA. DSA, FAC, NK, TCB, and TLA are all withdrawing embassies with them right now. The discussion happening at the region's RMB is also of interest.
  5. As proposed by comrade Freien here, please cast your vote. Freien explains the reason for his petition in that posting, so I suggest reading then casting. Remember that vetoes must be explained in the thread here to count, but any justified veto will prevent the passage of the item.
  6. TRCA has been allowing fascists and other reactionaries to join the region. The Internationale, along with other NSLeft regions, send a message to their administration, raising the issue. The answer that was given is that reactionaries are basically allowed to not limit their right of free speech and of being able to hold their own political beliefs. As a leftist region unwilling to give a platform to fascism and reactionary attitudes, we should condemn TRCA and cut any relations we are currently holding with it.

    So, nominations have ended. There will be no elections, seeing as there is no challenger for any position. Congratulations on the new General Council and good luck! Comrade WA Delegate: @Burninati0n Councillor for External Affairs:@Asturies-Llion Councillor for Internal Affairs: @Zenganopoli Councillor for Moderation: @Mollergrad

    Nominations for General Council, Ending February 3rd

    I will decline. I don’t think I have the time necessary at the moment to give to any sort of position and I’d like to sit this term out. Also, reminder that this is the final day of the nominations.
  9. No one else will run? It would be nice to have an election I nominate: @Ayanka for anything he wants, @World Anarchic Union for anything he wants, @Freien for anything he wants.
  10. Lardyland doesn't really suppose a problem since it's a region making use of all the tags available, some of them completely contradicting others, which shows they don't represent any position with them. We've previously found regions like these during other embassy votes and have decided a few times that these cases can be ignored. However I'll try to look into Aeterna Publicae and contact The Great Red Union to talk about it as soon as I can.
  11. They seem to have multiple embassies which violate Rule 5, including Aeterna Publicae and Lardyland.

    Nominations for General Council, Ending February 3rd

    I'm honored to be nominated, comrades, but I fear I have so little presence in The Internationale and in NSLeft generally that I wouldn't serve the community with any ability or acumen. Snarking on fash in the NS Gameplay/SC forums does not a minister make. 😉
  13. I've edited the post above. Also, best wishes for the pregnancy!
  14. The motion passes with 4 votes in favour and 1 absention.
  15. The Decapole counsils

    Nominations for General Council, Ending February 3rd

    I decline for the moderation. The term of my partner pregnancy wouldn't allow me to function properly, even if I decided to get back to half-implication. Also I nominated @Sierra Lyricalia for External Affairs, not for moderation which wouldn't have made so much sense to me.
  16. The Great Red Union has sent us an embassy request. You have 7 days to cast your vote.
  17. Update: - WAD: @Burninati0n (accepted)- Internal Affairs: Me (accepted) - External Affairs: @Asturies-Llion (accepted), @Sierra Lyricalia (yet to declare themselves)- Moderation: @Mollergrad (accepted), @The Postmodern Proletariat (yet to declare themselves)
  18. I would like to decline the nominations for Minister for internal affairs.
  19. (update moved 2 posts below)
  20. I accept the nomination for Moderator. I would be better suited there, I think.
  21. Situation as of now: - WAD: @Burninati0n (accepted) - Internal Affairs: Me (accepted), @Mollergrad (yet to clearly decide on whether to accept it or not), @Zrhajan (yet to declare himself on the matter) - External Affairs: @Asturies-Llion (accepted) - Moderation: @The Postmodern Proletariat (yet to declare themselves), @Sierra Lyricalia (yet to declare themselves), @Mollergrad (yet to clearly decide on whether to accept it or not)

    Nominations for General Council, Ending February 3rd

    Firstly, I’ll have to decline @Freien ‘s nomination, although I am extremely thankful. I don’t think I’ll have the time for such a position and seeing its importance that’s not a risk I want to take. Secondly, one cannot apply for two positions so the nominee such as in @Mollergrad‘s place will have to choose between them. Thirdly, seeing as @Countriopia unfortunately declined her nomination, I’d like to nominate @The Decapole counsils for the position of Councillor for Moderation because I think his ideas around the subject were very well developed and it’d be good for the region in regards to moderation if they were applied. I will make a post of who has been nominated and who has accepted their nomination at another day.
  23. Two nominations? Is that even allowed, haha. In my own opinion I'd be better suited for Moderation, at least I know what my duties would be.
  24. The Decapole counsils

    Nominations for General Council, Ending February 3rd

    Here are the persons I nominate: @Mollergrad for Moderation @Zrhajan for Internal affairs @Sierra Lyricalia for External affairs @Yukishiro Federation for WA (obviously they should first log their nation here, lol)
  25. I'll accept the nomination by @Burninati0n but do bear in mind that I haven't been in here nearly as long as some other people on here. I'm not 100% clear about what my job would be, but I'd be happy to learn along the way.
