New Virginian President Valentinus resigns amidst racism scandal; Chairwoman Hewitt becomes Acting President
Sertor Valentinus has resigned the Presidency of the Commonwealth of New Virginia following backlash he received due to leaked screenshots that show him using an anti-Romani racial slur to describe his hatred of "travelers".
In the screenshot, which was leaked from the private micronational social club known as "the Fun Gang" on the 24th of June, Valentinus says that he "fucking hates g*psies." In the past, numerous people in the New Virginian sector and elsewhere have confronted him regarding his usage of the slur, to which he has universally claimed that his use of the word is innocuous and not racially-motivated.
Blair Mountain League announces First Revolutionary Congress; Party Chairwoman appoints Provisional Revolutionary Committee
In her capacity as Party Chairwoman, Comrade Brooklyn Hewitt has announced that the First Revolutionary Congress of the Blair Mountain League will be held at the Palace of Red July in Friedecksburg, New Richmond City on the first anniversary of the New Virginian July Socialist Revolution.
The Blair Mountain League is the Republic's vanguard party and one of the two great elements of the microsocialist republican system in accordance with the Basic Law and Hewittism - the party's guiding ideology, derived from the micropatriological and political theories and positions of Comrade Brooklyn. Following the collapse of the New Virginian Revolutionary Committee for the Salvation of the Commonwealth, the members and supporters of the 29th of July Movement in the City of New Richmond and the Greater Richmond region reconstituted themselves as the Blair Mountain League and named Comrade Brooklyn as the party's Secretary-General (now called Chairwoman) by acclamation. Soon thereafter, she proclaimed the independence of the New Richmond Republic under the party's guidance.
The Mountaineer is the Republic's leading newspaper, reporting on events in New Richmonder politics and society. The paper also occasionally reports on events throughout the broader New Virginian sector, such as from Nordale or the Commonwealth of New Virginia.
