Supporters of Partidul Comunist Român stage mass rally in Bucharest

Bucharest, ROMANIA - Supporters of President Sindorin have poured out into the streets of Bucharest amid the recent elections victory over the liberal, green and conservative opposition. Winning 277 out of 500 seats, the Partidul Comunist Român, or Partidul Comunist as it is nown locally, holds a majority over the primary opposition, the Romanian Conservative Party. Citing a lack of basic economic, education, health and resources reform, the communist party has been able to run the table in the recent election and set up a majority government to pass an expected series of radical legislation aimed at reversing the stagnating economy.

Many within the capital fear reprisals for counter demonstrations as the military has taken to the streets as well, in strong support of the communist party's aims to militarize the working class and institute political councils within divisional leadership inside the military. Some generals worry that this will be a revival of older practices in relation to political commissars and a lack of morale within the military as a whole as a result of these practices.

President Sindorin's government has declined to comment specifically on what measures his new government would take, but stressed that the will of the people, particularly the working class, was paramount to his agenda.

Worker's and Peasant's Red Army organizes and begins to seize outlying cities

Arad, ROMANIA - elements of the Romanian military have defected, apparently and thrown their support towards President Sindorin's bid to militarize the working class and the peasantry within Romania. Sections of the National Assembly voted down a recent popularly fronted piece of legislation aimed at reducing the criminal effects of capitalism in Romania. Citing serious concerns regarding the welfare of the middle and upper classes, the liberal and conservative blocs sought to strike down the bill and causing it's failure by at least 144 votes earlier this morning.

Angry over the results of the vote, and seeking to make a show of support, three divisions of ground forces have organized themselves into the 'Worker's and Peasant's Red Army of Romania'. Mobilizing around the city of Arad, they have disavowed the national government's coalition with the conservative party and have called for national re-elections and urged the liberal party to make their final claim to allegiance; either to the Partidul Comunist or to the Conservative bloc. Liberal ministers declined the comment, however there is a widespread belief that many will defect to the conservative camp if pushed further.

Military analysts claim that contact has been lost with Arad, and only the President is overseeing the three breakaway divisions and while the actions are illegal, the president has cited strong support for soldiers and workers to collectively elect their commanders, and to support popular initiatives.

Parliamentary elections show huge loss to Communists

Bucharest, ROMANIA - Recent special elections called by President Sindorin have yielded less than stellar results for the now former ruling party, the Partidul Comunist. In many eastern provinces, the vote was decidedly communist in flavor. However in the more affluent east, the vote was found to be squarely in the favor of the more conservative Partidul Conservator. Widespread riots in the south and east have erupted as a result and the President's administration is on the verge of collapse as the majority in the National Assembly has plummeted to a new minority of 241 Seats, while the opposition coalition with a total of 259 seats out of 500.

Citing an alleged electoral fraud among the western cities, including the capital, he charged the conservative opposition with subverting the working class, and obstructing the natural evolution of the people's desire to not only govern themselves but also govern and own the means of production. Local factories have gone on strike across the nation as revenues have steadily declined in recent weeks amidst the electoral uncertainty. Analysts are calling the situation "volatile, unstable and definitely ripe for revolution and turmoil..."

Massive protests take place all across Caracal over election fraud

Caracal, ROMANIA -- Popular support for the minority Partidul Comunist has reached an all time high in recent days as President Sindorin expounds the vulnerabilities of the working class and the fragile economy to the growing threat of the conservative bloc. hundreds of thousands of citizens and immigrants flooded the city's main square waving romanian flags and shouting slogans of support for Sindorin and Pro-Socialist elements of the minority party.

While appeals are taking place within the high courts of the nation, riots and unrest rock the already weakened nation as the economy attempts to struggle on amid an uncertain economic future. Though unemployment has dropped markedly in the last few months from 9% to 2.9% (some say due in part by the president's lesser working class initiatives), crime remains a serious issue and illiteracy and disease prevalence outside urban areas are rampant.

Military forces loyal to the conservative bloc have essentially declared the protests illegal and have stationed garrisons inside the city but have as of yet refused to break up the swelling protestors. Rumors that an imminent collapse of the government are widespread however it is still unclear as to which political forces will maintain the dominant position in the coming months.

Worker's and Peasant's Army checkpoint in Bucharest

Bucharest, ROMANIA -- Elements of the Worker's and Peasant's Red Army that had been growing in the west near Arad have multiplied and siezed most of the major cities of Romania, including the capital of Bucharest. Citing the overwhelming support of the people as the impetus, the military leadership of the Red Army has repeatedly denied allegations of working for the administration of President Sindorin, though the Red Army has received the blessing of the Partidul Comunist in recent days.

As appeals in the courts officially overturn the recent elections, members of the opposition conservative bloc have resigned from the national assembly in protest over both the military intervention and the election appeal results. They claim that the military and the communist party are working against the national interests and have vowed to "fight them in the streets, in the homes and in the schools". Though no official comment was issued by the Partidul Comunist, it is clear now that Romania has entered a critical stage in President Sindorin's promised socialist transformative government. Whether it will benefit the Romanian people is yet to be seen, however there is a great deal of widespread support for his recent policies and the military's de facto coup.

Romanian workers and peasants work on forming new collectives

Bucharest, ROMANIA -- Workers peasants around the country have already begun to form their own Soviets, or collectives in their workplaces. Reports throughout industrial cities like Caracal and Arad have flooded in with stories of heroism against the capitalist land owners and factory managers. Though the economy is still strongly rooted in capitalist traditions and the government is hard pressed to reverse this in the National Assembly, it is clear that the working proletariat has begun to take matters into their own hands.

Factory managers and shopkeepers are apparently appalled at the recent moves and fear for the future of their businesses. Though President Sindorin has not called for these moves and has an open support for small business and small farming communities, he did advocate during a July speech for the "strong and favorable push towards a militant, democratic working class...". Whether or not militant refers to an armed proletariat seizing control from even the national assembly is unclear.

What continues to remain certain, is that Socialism in Romania is only a matter of time.

Anti government protests hit full swing; Opposition pushes for capitalist reintegration

Caracal, ROMANIA -- Recent attempts by the Communist Party of Romania (Now renamed, and dubbed the PCR) to advocate for a socialist implementation within the economy and government of the country have been met with incredibly staunch resistance from both opposition conservatives as well as from more centrist members in Sindorin's own party. analysts have predicted that the nation will either perpetually continue in it's struggle for democratic socialism, or it will revery back to a coalition of a Communist lead government backed by Liberal and Green minorities. Unfortunately, this is not the way Socialism is going to come about.

President Sindorin declined to comment on some of the spontaneous protests that took place across the city of Caracal earlier this afternoon. An estimated 120,000 citizens took part and were shouting anti government slogans, and carried pro capitalist banners and signs. While the protestors identified with no mainstream political party, it is estimated that the majority of the crowd were aligned with the Conservative Party.
