The Burning Ruins of Salt City



July 10, 2006

Today, much of Salt City lays in burning ruins. On July 9th, militants of the FLDS descended upon the city, setting it ablaze, and abducting the women and young girls. Anyone who stood in the way of the terrorists were brutally murdered or mutilated. They also attacked religious structures, including the Iglesia de San Lázaro, Convento de San Fermín, and the Capilla de San Pedro de Galilea, the original Catholic church in Salt City. Several monks were found murdered, others were found missing eyelids and lips. The nuns at the Convento de San Fermín were taken.

“It’s frightening, until now they were more like one of the gangs which pass through here from time to time, but this time they’ve gone too far. It’s disgusting what these perverted pigs have done. They should be hanged publicly for this atrocity. My brother’s wife and his daughter were taken like hunting tropies. Fortunately my wife and I were visting relatives in Las Vegas but out house is in ashes.” said Porfirio Murrieta.

There have been widespread protests and calls throughout Alta California, Montrei, and even Tejas for the execution of the terrorists. “We must stop these people. For too long the government and local authorities have had their hands tied trying to control the region. It’s time to take action.” said Rosario Sevilla.

Others blame the government for what they say is inaction. “For decades, the government has forgotten us, leaving us with the bare minimum of protection while it fought Tejas in the southland. Now that the war with Tejas is over, where is our salvation?” asked Joaquin Murrieta.

Survivors were taken to Ciudad Galilea and treated for injuries at the city hospital. The government has begun to increase fortification of the city, and installing military checkpoints outside of the city and nearby towns.

Territorial Governor Rodrigo Vazsquez commented “We need all the help we can get from the federal government. These pedophiles must be stopped. It’s time the government of Alta California step in and try to control these people and other groups like them rather than just taking a defensive stance.”

President Schwarzenegger has called for increased military presence in Deseret citing the possibility that these attacks could increase. “These are not just murders and abductions. These are an offense to the Californio people, they are crimes against humanity. I would like to extend a call to our neighbors for help. We will accept any aid offered, as this incident could inflame areas even outside of the so called Deseret region.”

President Schwarzenegger is expected to meet with President Young of Louisianne later this week.


Louisiannan Support to Alta California


Paris-sur-Mizouri, LOUISIANNE

20 Messidor, CCXIV (10 July 2006)

President Jean-François Young announced today the support of Louisianne’s recently acquired Spretu fighters and zeppelins, should Alta California choose to accept them.

There has been no response for Alta California as yet. Analysts and pundits alike have commented on the change in the relationship between Louisianne and Alta California. It was only a few years ago that Louisianne proceeded to bomb what is Alta Californian territory as they sought to bring an end to domestic terrorism. Fortunately for Louisianne, Alta California was embroiled in the cold war along the Rio de Sangre at the time, and gave no thought to the bombing missions.

Some pundits would suggest that President Young and the government in general are being much more conciliatory now that Alta California has shown its mettle against Tejas and could launch a full-scale war against Louisianne if they so chose.

More conservative analysts suggest that Mr. Young is treating Alta California as an equal, and as such is offering aid in an area where Louisianne has a strong expertise.

It is expected that Alta California will accept the help from Louisianne to quell the trouble in the border region.

Salt City Still Burns

Salt City is still burning and smoldering as looters and rioters proceed to destroy what was left by the FLDS raiders. With massive thunderstorms and high winds predicted for later this evening, a firestorm is highly possible.

Surviving Ministry leadership has issued a call to its membership to withdraw from Salt City and into Abundance, Kayston and Ranchville, its northern enclaves. Joining the exodus to the south are most of the citizens of Río Jordán, another Ministry settlement. Most refugees of Salt City have been set up in a tent-city near the fruit groves of Ciudad San Benito along the bench of Monte Timpanogosa,
under protection from the Mission de San Benito de Nursia.

Ministry leaders have spent the day in negotiations with governor Rodrigo Vasquez. While the negotiations are proceeding behind closed doors, a prior point of contention has been put aside; Ministry officials have agreed to allow other missions to be constructed in or near Ministry settlements throughout the region.
