    ooc: jobs come from the increase in industrial production during wartime, not the paychecks of soldiers.

    OCC: Plus all the casualties would free up jobs back home as well

    If you are willing, we would like to send a small army to fight with your army in Ecuador. They would fight as part of the Mexican army. We wish to show solidarity with our Socialists brothers.

    You descent into anarchy threatens to destabilize the entire region. With your permission, we are willing to send our military to assist you with restoring order.

    Les Syndiqués

    Four men stood, blindfolded and against the wall.

    Marcel de Gruyard, Louis Tremblay, André Saint Jean, Auguste Leloup, you have all been convicted by the courts of the peoples of the Métis Republic of treason against the state, conspiracy, corruption, and dereliction of duty. You have disturbed the peace of the Republic, and spilled the blood of your own soldiers, and the civilian population. For these crimes, the courts orders that you be sentenced to death.

    The sound of rifle shots cracked through the crisp morning air. François Cloutier looked upon the dead officers, a stern look of disapproval still upon his face.

    “Such is the price of treachery.”

    With that, Cloutier turned away and set off back towards the capital building, surrounded by an entourage of other officials, come to witness the execution.

    As he returned to his office, Cloutier, hung his coat, now wet and heavy from the melting snow, on the rack and flung himself down onto his black leather chair. He rested his hands upon his temples and stared intensely down at his cleared desk, and thought. As was his habit, he pulled out his notebook and began to record his thoughts.

    The traitorous officers have now been executed. I will not write their names, perhaps in hopes that they will fall into obscurity. I have fears that this will not be.

    Betrayal in the military will not be tolerated in any extent. The Métis people have struggled for too long against external oppressors to now turn against each other. We must remain united, and of common purpose, especially in these troubled times.

    That brings me to my next thought, the issue that I am convinced is directly responsible for this unfortunate incident. The workers at the Hoffman-Mauzer Mill have been protesting for some time. Les Syndiqués, as the organizers of the strike refer to themselves, are showing significant levels of organization. With regards to their cause, I am neutral. That people desire greater wages is understandable, but in times such as these? I do not know if the Mills could survive the more extreme demands of which I have heard. I am happy to see the Métis people continuing to stand up for ourselves, but I remain concerned about the possibility alienating the Germans- they have done much good for this country.

    However, the fact that M. Hoffman and M. Mauzer would bribe military officers to deal with the Syndiqués is nothing short of alarming. It is certainly not within anyone’s capabilities to punish them, without severe retribution from overseas. However, events like this must not occur again, lest further splits be hewn into the boulder that is the Métis people.

    I remain well aware off the rising phenomenon of socialism, and its connection (if not material, then at least idealogical) with the Syndiqués. I am wary of any system that promises itself to be utopian, but as of yet have little reason to hold anything against these new governments. However, were the Métis to join this collective, I greatly fear that we would find ourselves overshadowed by giants, forever denying the great future that is, I believe, the destiny of the Métis people.

    Thus, it is my belief that I should contact the Syndiqués, and attempt to broker a solution between them and the Mill’s owners. Their activist activity will, if treated properly and with dignity, not fall into extremism as many fear they will. I shall draft my letter immediately.

    God give me strength, and guide my people.

    I wish to hear your requests, to help broker a mutually acceptable labour settlement.

    We ask that you recind your declaration of war for the time being while discussions are being made between both sides. If not as a matter of principle SADL will have to declare war on you for threatening a fellow member of the South American Defensive League.

    Could we get some support? We don't want to be conquered by another group of Imperialists.

    We believe that Belgium should begin peace negotiations with her enemies as soon as possible. Should Belgium be in danger of being conquered we will provide military aid but Belgium's continued refusal to join a military alliance with the rest of the Socialist countries means that the Socialist Union has very little legitimate opportunity to provide aid to Belgium.

    In order to avoid a needless and pointless war we need to get a response from you regarding Ecuador as soon as possible.

    While we would not be opposed to monitored elections, it was our understanding that the Ecuadorians had already rejected such a course of action.

    Ecuador has rejected an unconditional return to New England's protectorate system. We believe that if hostilities were to cease then elections, monitored by New England and the Socialist Union could be held. If politicians that support returning to New England's protectorate win then Ecuador will be expelled from the Socialist Cooperative Group and New England will be free to enforce the legitimate government. If politicians that do not support New England's protectorate win then New England will recognize the government, New England's allies will withdraw from Ecuador, and Ecuador will remain in the Cooperative Group.

    As long as New England agrees to such an arrangement we believe that bloodshed can be averted. Furthermore, if Ecuador refuses such an arrangement, it will be seen as admission of the fact that the current government does not have popular support, and the Socialist Union will not stand in the way of further New English action against it.

    OOC: So, they can either be socialist or a New England Protectorate...sounds like a raw deal to me.

    OOC: Actually you bring up a good point, obviously if the elected government wants neither we would be ok with that too... Just didn't occur to me.

    If I recall though the socialists in Ecuador weren't ever elected. They took power after a civil war.

    Exactly, so now there will be elections, and if the socialists win, New England will back off, if pro-New Englanders win, SUSA and company will back off, if someone else wins, we both will. Sound fair?

    Since orders are due very very soon we need a response from New England ASAP otherwise we might end up with a war that nobody wants. At the very least lets agree to a cease fire.

    We agree to this and will move to enforce a ceasefire, so that no further blood is shed. We will honor the results of the election and will do our best to enforce it upon Peru and Columbia and will work to prevent outside intervention in the matter.

    If I remember the only one to declare war (aside from the original participants) was Mexico so they need to declare a ceasefire.
