State of Samizdat

The State of Samizdat is a virtual state located in a hidden area of the internet called "Onionland". It was established in line with the Montevideo Convention (1933) in May 2019. This microstate has not formally claimed any territory but does lay claim to a one-hectare family plot in Mungia bought in 1983. This small territory has no access to the Bay of Biscay as it is landlocked within the Kingdom of Spain. The land claimed by Samizdat is located 19 miles northeast of the Spanish city of Bilbao, close to the Castle of Butrón. The forested plot of land is not under the control of the State of Samizdat. On October 1st, 2019, a constitution was made by the Samizdat government in four different languages (English, Catalan, Spanish & French) asking for the territory to be invaded and occupied by activists.[1]

Etymology of Name

The word Samizdat is Russian in origin. It was used during the Soviet era to refer to the production and distribution by ordinary citizens of government censored political material. The State of Samizdat, established 20 May 2020, sees itself as an anti-establishment microstate, with strong anti-Marxist tendencies. It is a supporter of the Europe of sovereign states, and very much an opponent of the EU project, even going so far as to declare war on the EU.

History

The State of Samizdat was originally established to represent the community of TOR users in Onionland, but has since developed into a wider project. It has claimed land in Europe, recognised several independent states, awarded medals and other awards, and named a government.

Broken Aura Award

Broken Aura Award

The State of Samizdat issues Broken Aura Awards to individuals whose aura is broken or who have lost their light. There are no specific categories for these awards, which are mainly given to people in the public eye who, by their actions, have demonstrated a lack of human empathy towards others.

Competition for these awards is stiff, so the State of Samizdat awards these prizes on a regular basis and not just annually. These prestigious accolades were first introduced on 10 January 2020 and were awarded mainly to unscrupulous politicians.

Politics

A Political Compass test shows political views on a scale or grid. Dictators like Hitler show up very clearly on the authoritarian fascist scale firmly to the political centre. Other authoritarian leaders like Stalin, are placed on the left on the scale. Margaret Thatcher appears further to the right than Hitler, but less authoritarian in her political views.

Samizdat's own Compass Scale test, shows surprisingly left-wing, libertarian tendencies but almost in the centre between authoritarian and libertarian. We can conclude from the Compass Test that the political views in the State of Samizdat are Centre-Left with slight libertarian tendencies, similar to those of Gandhi who was more left-wing and more libertarian.

Official Languages

There are three official languages in Samizdat: English, Spanish, French. The language of state administration and diplomacy is English, with Spanish being used for communication purposes and French for cultural reasons.

Official symbols

The State of Samizdat has adopted the following people, plants and animals as national symbols. These reflect the culture and values of this micronation.

The State of Samizdat regards illegal activities online as illegal. Their written constitution makes this clear; encouraging web masters and hosting companies to monitor and delete all illegal content.

Alert Levels

There are four levels of alert in the State of Samizdat: Low, Significant, High and Severe. Political instability and violence in neighbouring Spain have at times increased the Alert Level, as when the Spanish Supreme Court sentenced Catalan leaders to 13 years prison for "sedition" over an independence bid. This led to riots in Catalonia and the use of force by Spain.

Samizdat has four "Alert Levels" reflecting the level of risk or security. Current level: SEVERE since 7 Jan 2020 .

Terrorist Groups

The State of Samizdat has declared the following groups "criminal" or "terrorist" organisations.

Mutual recognition initiatives between microstates is something welcomed by the State of Samizdat. The Montevideo Convention (1933) makes recognition by other states, an essential part of its definition of "a state".

The nation will gladly enter into diplomatic initiatives on mutual recognition with similar microstates to their own on MicroWiki, as of being part of the micronation's foreign policy. Please feel free to contact our Secretary of State to channel your diplomatic requests, via this e-mail: samizdatstate@protonmail.com

States refused recognition by Samizdat

The following nations have been refused recognition by the State of Samizdat on legal grounds:

• Kingdom of Spain[3]

• Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus - The State of Samizdat stated that "This island territory was invaded and occupied by Turkey in 1974 and is regarded by Samizdat as Greek land."[4]

Unrecognised Treaties & Agreements

The State of Samizdat does not recognise or accept the following treaties, international agreements or laws. All such agreements and treaties are regarded as null and void, having been declared illegal by state decree.

• All European Union Treaties: Maastricht Treaty, Treaty of Rome‎, Treaty of Lisbon - Declared null and void in Samizdat and rest of Europe - 29 January 2020.[5]

EU Withdrawal Treaty - Brexit withdrawal agreement between EU and UK. Declared null and void - 27 January 2020.

Paris Accord - agreement on climate change. Declared illegal - 7 December 2019.


Eu.png Declaration of War on the EU

The State of Samizdat has not declared war on any sovereign nation, though it did declare war on the European Union on the 25th January 2020. This followed several warnings made to the European Commission on the issue of the Brexit Withdrawal Treaty. Samizdat considers the EU Treaty to be an attack on the freedoms and rights of the British people and intended the declaration of war to reflect this.

Tensions between the State of Samizdat and the EU had been running high long before the declaration of war in January 2020. On 3 July 2019, the EU's head of diplomacy, Josep Borrell, was declared persona non grata, six days later a first war warning was issued and on 14 October 2019, the State of Samizdat demanded the resignation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The declaration of war did not extend to EU member states, but rather the European Union itself. This is because the EU, although not a sovereign nation, acts like a sovereign nation: it has a flag, national anthem and even aspires to having its own army. It is therefore right to consider the EU a "pretend nation".

In its final warning to the EU on the 24th October 2019, the State of Samizdat made the following declaration:

"With this warning we are making it clear to the European Commission that a state of war will exist between the EU and the State of Samizdat if the Withdrawal Treaty is ratified. A final, formal Declaration of War will be sent to the EU by the State of Samizdat, as required under the Charter of the United Nations. This declaration is legal under the UN charter in cases of self-defence. We regard this situation as a direct attack against the British people who have the right to defend themselves from EU enslavement."

On 27 January 2020, the State of Samizdat declared the EU Withdrwal Treaty to be null and void, which along with other agreeements and treaties, has no legal validity after having been declared "illegal" by state decree. Two days before Brexit, all European Union treaties including: the Maastricht Treaty, Treaty of Rome‎, Treaty of Lisbon‎, and all other treaties passed by the European Union and EEC since its foundation, are also declared null and void by the State of Samizdat.

To date, a state of war between the EU and Samizdat still exists. So far there have been several attacks launched against the MicroWiki page of the State of Samizdat, it happened the day after the declaration of war , 26 January 2020. The attack was carried out by a group calling itself the Gay Niggers Revenge Force. The deleted content was restored by MicroWiki.

A new pro-EU radical feminist group calling itself the League for European Federalism in Samizdat (LEFS) has since threatened to "overthrow" the government of Samizdat. The group's demands, which were published in a social network called Minds, included the declaration of Greta Thumberg as a "national hero".

The first ever car registration number plate issued on 1 August 2019.

The State of Samizdat issued its first car registration number plate on 1 August 2019. It is white with black lettering, both front and back, with a pale blue border.

Economy

The official currency in Samizdat is the cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin. It's a virtual currency unit often used to make online transactions.

Postal Service & Stamps

The State of Samizdat issues commemorative stamps on special occasions and for annual events. The first stamp was issued in December 2019 and like all the stamps issued by the State of Samizdat, it had no face value. This is because the postal services in Samizdat are free. This is due to the small size of the territory claimed by the State of Samizdat. Such stamps are merely collectors' items.

Below are the postal stamps issued so far, the date when it was issued and a brief description. On the right, is the very first stamp issued by the State of Samizdat in December 2019.

Hoax.jpg Environmental Issues

The State of Samizdat considers climate change to be a hoax.

The following month, the United States pulled out of the Paris Agreement, prompting the State of Samizdat to congratulate Donald Trump. Samizdat is now urging China to pull out of this agreement.

Corona.jpg Corona Virus

The State of Samizdat is located in an area affected by the Corona virus. It recently issued a statement urging Italy, the first European country to suffer an outbreak of Corona virus, to suspend the Schengen agreement and close all its borders to prevent the spread of the virus. Samizdat also urged the Italian authorities to halt the illegal trafficking of migrants, some of whom originate from Asia, and to prevent NGO migrant ships from docking in Italy.

On Friday 13 March, the State of Samizdat announced that "All political and cultural activities" were "suspended due to Coronavirus, until further notice".

Equalrights.png Equal Rights

The Law for the Protection of Men's Rights was passed on March 4th 2020, and came into force four days later (March 8). The law states that men have: the right to equal treatment under the law. The new law contains four important points which protect the right of men to chose for themselves on the issue of parenthood. The law also outlines the punishments for violating such rights.

The equal rights law contains four clauses: 1. All men shall be protected from false accusations of sexual assault or harassment by women. 2. All men are owners of their own sperm. 3. All men in the State of Samizdat have the right NOT to be a father. 4. All men have the right TO BE a father.

With this law, the State of Samizdat hopes to guarantee the rights of all men to equal treatment under the law on issues rarely discussed in other nations. For the first time, men are owners of their sperm and the unauthorised use of such becomes a punishable offense. They are also guaranteed by law the right to be, or not to be, a father.

Humantrafficking.jpg Human Rights

The State of Samizdat recently launched a campaign to stop human trafficking into Europe. The campaign involves identifying and targetting vessels involved in the trafficking of human beings. Many of these vessels are run by fake NGO's and mafias working from northern Africa. So far five pirate ships have been identified and targeted for direct action. The State of Samizdat remains hopeful their anti-human trafficking campaign will succeed in reducing this illegal activity.

Euthanasia, Abortion & Capital Punishment

The State of Samizdat does not have a formal position on the issue of abortion or capital punishment (death penalty) though it is clear these practices are unlikely to be "legal" in its territory. On the issue of euthanasia, however, the State of Samizdat made its views clear on 12 February 2020. Euthanasia will be made illegal by state decree if neighbouring Spain passes a law to make "assisted killings" legal, read the statement.

Electr29.jpg Electronic Harassment

The State of Samizdat is leading a campaign to tackle the difficult and often misunderstood issue of government sponsored electronic harassment of citizens. Such torture tecniques are used worldwide on so-called targeted individuals (TI). Spain is one of those countries which secretly uses electronic weapons on individuals as a form of government harassment.

The State of Samizdat has to date issued one offical warning to the Spanish authorities on this issue. The anti-electronic harassment campaign is likely to include measures to help TI's protect themselves from this form of remote torture as well as to bring this often ignored issue to the attention of micronationalists.

Effects.gif
Rmc.jpg

Recently, a leaked document from the US Department of Homeland Security suggests that such electronic harassment weapons are indeed being used on citizens. RFID weapons (also known as psycho-electronic weapons) may even be used for mind control purposes and to induce pain, as illustrated by the leaked diagram (left). Remote mind control technology can be operated from mobile phone networks, as a second leaked diagram shows (right).

Media

The State of Samizdat recently launched a radio station called Radio Samizdat. It also runs a social media page on Minds and a Twitter account. See external links section below.

Radio Samizdat was launched on 29 June 2019
