Nations without States believes that all self-determinists will find Global Markets Free Nations of great interest.
WELCOME to issue 11 of What Must Be Done, the publically-available organising bulletin of Nations without States. NwS supporters are asked to read – and more importantly – act upon the instructions detailed below:
• NATION. Issue 3 of Nation – the Newsletter of Nations without States – will be out in pdf form within the next couple of weeks. This is a EU Referendum special issue. The Referendum will be held on 23rd June so we won’t have too long to distribute it prior to the vote. Therefore, we’re asking all those who believe in self-determination to pre-order Nation by e-mailing Nations without States at firstname.lastname@example.org today!
As soon as it is out we’ll send it to you. When you receive it please forward it on to all fellow self-determinists. Please also promote it as widely as possible using all forms of social media that you have access to.
The main article – To Dream Of Freedom! – contrasts the current EU with the NwS ‘dream of a Europe of free nations and peoples.’ Another article looks at the Free Speech: How Do We Protect It? Facebook group who’ve produced issue 1 of their publication, Free Speech. Of particular interest to all self-determinists is that Free Speech is more than willing to examine incidences of any State trying to limit free speech.
The main article on the back page of Nation is called Action! It looks at how the NwS Organising Committee – consisting of Doris Jones, Jagdeesh Singh, Graham Williamson and Sockalingam Yogalingam – are active both in the corridors of power and on the streets. Their vision of a world consisting of ‘rooted – ‘natural’ – nations’ replacing ‘Superstates and empires’ is explained. Those who support NwS are encouraged to become active because self-determination ‘is not going to be achieved without action.’
Returning to the lead article, it notes that the EU ‘is a rich man’s club for powerful corporate big business and banking elites. Their underlings – the politicians – are happy enough with the trappings of power.’ Nation believes that the EU will eventually transform itself into a United States of Europe. ‘This will have to be a highly centralised political and economic system. The voices of ordinary people will never be heard. For it to succeed, there will have to be very little – or no – democracy, even less accountability and less freedom.’
The alternative to this centralist United States of Europe is ‘free and independent nations running their internal affairs the way they want to.’ Such nations would adhere to their traditions, customs and way of life. They would have the absolute right to say how they work, who they trade with and who can come to live and work in their country.
As well as national freedom, Nation advocates social justice. Here the people will ‘get a real say in the running of their nation’ via a system of popular rule – true democracy. This would involve proportional representation, a system of recall as well as preferendums and referendums.
The article also provides some information about a group which should be of great interest to fellow self-determinists. Called Global Markets Free Nations, one of its leading figures is well-known Self-Determinist and Human Rights activist, Upkar Singh Rai. Like ourselves, Global Markets Free Nations would prefer to see small, free and Independent states rather than large power-blocs that lead to conflict and seek to grow at the expense of others.
Talking to Nation about the fight to get Britain out of the EU, Upkar said “It is ironic that there are still many nations in the world searching for their freedom and independence so it makes no sense for the citizens of the UK to give away their independence!”
