    Greetings to His Most Excellent Alfonso XIII, King of Spain by the Grace of God,

    Though I myself have no noble blood in me, I dare to presume to write to your August Presence due to the current troubles afflicting our shared lover, Spain. It is with great sadness that the people of Spain saw the rampant corruption of our politicians. However, when they, using their powers granted to them by your Kindness, attempted to end this corruption by voting the worse offenders out, they were blocked by the banning of their champion in this quest, El Partido Unido Popular.

    Because of this, the people of Spain saw no choice but to reluctantly take up arms in order to destroy through force what the corrupt government forbid them to do through the political process. However, we do not want to see Spanish blood shed, but only the end of the reign of the politicians in Madrid, who prove themselves traitors to Spain by looking after their own interests, and not the interests of Spain. Therefore, on behalf of the people of Spain, I beg you to perform the following in order to protect your subjects from those who oppress them.

    1) The King immediately dissolve Parliament and call for new elections.
    2) The King issue a full pardon for all members of People’s Party for their actions and guarantee their safety if they demobilize.
    3) The King reestablishes the United People’s Party as a recognized political party of Spain and allows it to participate fully in the election.
    4) No current nor past member of Parliament be able to run for re-election
    5) France stays uninvolved in an internal election of Spain and keeps her army and navy away from Spain’s territory and waters.

    I ask this, not on behalf of myself, who am but a humble servant of your Majesty, but on behalf of all the people of Spain, who groan under the injustices committed against them and long for the day when Spain may once again stand strong and united.

    Your Humble Servant,
    Colonel Severiano Martinez Anido

    From: France

    We would withdraw if the elections can be ensured as free and fair. Also, we hope that condition 4 is taken off or revised. There is no democracy when there are people excluded. Other than that, is there any way elections can be monitored by a third party? Like the South Americans? etc.

    Canada and some other powers would be good too.

    If France truly wishes to see the people of Spain rid herself of her corrupt elements in a peaceful manner, we would wish she would comprehend request 5 and hopes France would in the future, to quote, "stay uninvolved in an internal election of Spain." We would like to further remind France, based the normal definition of "uninvolved," that she should kindly refrain from communicating her opinion to either side, as communicating said opinions means, by definition, she is involved.

    The people of Spain would like to continue her lecture on language by reminding France that “democracy” does not mean that no one is excluded. I need only to point, as an example, that France rightly prohibits women from voting or holding office.

    As for third party "monitoring" of elections, we refuse, and urge the King to refuse such requests as they will violate Spain's national sovereignty.

    To Prussia
    From Union of Three Crowns

    After much deliberation we have determined that Prussia's faux concepcion of populism and cooperation are being perpetuated by this puppet alliance The Greater Zollverein. While the Union greatly believes in democratic government, it does not believe that the way to initiate democratic reform is through forceful strangulation of a nation's own economy. To deny access to British-made and Canadian goods is not only counterintuitive but even hypocritical given Canada's political orientation.

    The Union will not object to being thrown out of The Greater Zollverein if this alliance's only purpose is to alienate and spark tensions with nations that did nothing to deserve them. The Union has no qualms with Britain or Canada; and we will not let our foreign policy be dictated by our neighbors to the south.

    Good day.

    From Republican Spain:
    to France:
    There is no point to deal with these rebels as if they have any form of true political power. Send us help to crush them, or mark our words, France will fall from fascism on three fronts!.

    from Spanish Throne:
    (on the side as the King no longer has the political power it once held)
    We believe that the People's Party has some truth in their words. Let us re-do our elections, and lets see if the republican claim for democracy works best. Let the people decide freely.

    From Prussia:
    To Union of The Three Crowns:
    We are not opposed for you to trade with anybody else. However the Zollverein was stablished as to eliminate trade barriers, while maintaining protectionist tariffs on the goods of outside parties. Mainly to protect our industry. If you do not wish to comply with the Rules of the Zollverein very well. But we are not going to let the action one member to bring the rest down. (netherlands complies with Prussia)

    Prussia:
    To Belgium:
    Would you comply that the Three Crowns must leave the Zollverein?

    What is wrong? You who wrap yourselves in the cloak of doing the will of the people, why do you fear the people so? You claim that we have no political power, than why do you ban us from taking part in the elections? You speak a half-truth. For we have no political power of the nature your kind excels in, bribery, corruption, self-advancement. Our political power is not like yours, for it comes from the Spanish people who are tired of being disunited and exploited and so have risen up, striving to attain strength through unity! So sure are we of the open disgust of the people of Spain at your blatant corruption that we would be willing to drop our fourth demand, that no current nor past member of Parliament be able to run for re-election, if, in exchange, an independent court, answerable only to the King, is set up to investigate those accused of corruption and punish them if found guilty.



    Official Press Release:

    Though, as we have stated many times before, we will not allow any election to be monitored as we believe it would infringe on national sovereignty, the People's Party freely offers to host any members of the foreign press who wish to observe our campaign for themselves. Unfortunately, it appears that Madrid has decided to ignore the will of the people and wish to rule as an oligarchy, not democracy. As such, on behalf of the people of Spain, we cannot demobilize and allow their reign of corrupt tyranny to continue. And so, as we have said before, seeing that our reasonable demands to give the power back to the united people of Spain has been rejected, we must take by violence what is ours by right.

    From Republican Spain (Actually from a highly inflamatory member of it):
    To answer your question, It is because the people seldom know what is best for them. Yes, you and your populist rethoric seems romantic and idealistic, but in the end where will it end? In a far worse society ruled by the army and under an umbrella of fear and oppression. So do not take the will of people as the best expression of society, but rather that of the intellectual elite which forms the actual government. Now, as you have made self evident, it is war to the end.

    El Degüello* will be played, and no mercy will be given!

    *A bugle call of Spanish/moorish origin. It means no mercy, with a literal translation into 'slit-throat' or 'the beheading'. It has its origin in the Inquisition and Reconquista against the muslims. It is also famous because it was played at the Alamo before it was stormed as an appeal to an enemy to surrender or else they would die by the sword.

    Italy would not look kindly upon any French intervention in the Spanish conflict. Neither would many of her allies...let us not have unnecessary spilling of blood.

    We would agree to fair elections with the condition that multitudes of countries send representatives to monitor each other and the election process. Is there a problem with ensuring democracy? Spain is a nation in conflict. It will require many eyes from stabler nations to monitor any possible problems that arise from a lack of experience etc.

    To Peru Socialists and other rebels in South America:
    We salute your contribution to the People! We should start organizing these revolutions mutually, hopefully we will get to do so soon!

    To American socialist rebels:
    We root for you, buddies! :) Let all of America become one; a continent of the People!

    OOC:
    Don't have time for orders until tomorrow, big exam coming up. If I can't make them by deadline, or if they aren't allowed to come late, make my Brazilian commie republic an NPC for one turn. Please don't let my rebellion die because of this ;) I promise I'll get more active once this exam is over. :)
