Dear Comrades of Bob,

January 26, 2013 was the historic day when the comrades of the Libertarian Socialist Federation, and the Union of Communist Republics declared their intention to form an MDAP/DM Bloc Die Linke, and we were later joined by the comrades from the Socialist Workers' Front .
Today, we are here to announce a few amendments to the DL Treaty Text reflecting our decision to unite our Foreign Affairs Department under one head- The Die Linke Foreign Affairs Co-ordination Committee.

 

AMENDMENT No.1 
 
Article I: On Solidarity
1. All signatory member alliances of Die Linke are to remain sovereign in their internal working.

 

 AMENDEMENT No.2
 
Article IV: On Internationalism
1. Present Signatories may extend an invitation to any outside alliance to sign this treaty that it deems fitting to the outlined ideals.
1a) Invitation to any outside alliance to sign this treaty must be approved by the Die Linke Foreign Affairs Co-ordination Committee.
2. Any outside alliance invited to sign this treaty that is willing to eternally commit themselves to these ideals must be unanimously confirmed by all its current signatories.
3. Present signatories may invite an outside alliance to enter into an economic and/or military pact with the Bloc. 
3a) Proposal to sign economic and/or military part with the bloc must be approved by the Die Linke Foreign Affairs Co-ordination Committee.
 

 

 

 AMENDMENT No.3
 
Article V:  Documents providing logistic support to the Die Linke treaty.
1. Die Linke Foreign Affairs Co-Ordination Committee, henceforth called DLFACC.
 
1a) This committee shall govern the Foreign Affairs Endeavors of the Bloc. Any proposal/invitation to an outside alliance to enter into an economic and/or military pact with the bloc or to sign the Die Linke treaty must be approved unanimously by all DLFACC members.
 
1b) Composition: 
This committee shall consist of two members from each signatory of this treaty. The method of selecting the members representing the signatories shall reside solely with the respective alliances.
 
1c) Duties of the Committee Member
All members of the DLFACC must serve as a link between the members of the alliances they are representing and other DLFACC members. During votes regarding signing of treaties, all members shall rightfully communicate the decision of their respective alliance.
 
1d) Any member of DLFACC who fails to carry out his/her duties shall be liable to forfeiture of DLFACC membership and other retribution as decided by the alliance s/he represents.
 
 

After the above amendments, the Die Linke Treaty text is as follows -

Preamble

We, the signatory alliances, by remaining true to the ideals universal amongst our movement including equality, solidarity, vigilence, commitment and internationalism, in one of the darkest of hours for our movement in this world, have grown closer to one another than many may had thought possible. Blood has been spilled. Entire nations have been wiped from existence. Some of us even considered, or indeed did, give up hope.

We hereby look to cement that relationship and camaraderie eternally built in the past months in the form of this treaty, in the hope that we shan't ever be torn asunder by petty differences in our structures, worldviews, or power relations ever again. This treaty is hereby enshrined not only for us, but in spirit of all those whose ideals have been forsaken and their friendships torn asunder by the stupidity of this world in the past.

We are the workers, we are the vanguard, we are the black bloc.

We are Die Linke.


Article I: On Solidarity
1. All signatory member alliances of Die Linke are to remain sovereign in their internal workings.
2. All members of a signatory alliance are now, from this day forth, considered to be members of all signatory alliances, and shall be treated as such in every possible capacity.
2a. This clause becomes limited when voting on internal matters. All members of all signatories are expected to have a "base of operations," which is reflected by their nation's Alliance Affiliation.


Article II: On Equality
1. All signatories to this treaty are considered to be in equal standing, regardless of the amount of nations flying their Alliance Affiliation.
2. On their honour, no signatory is to infringe upon the rights of any other, be it through the revoking of masks, intentional shuffling of blocs of members to skew a vote, etc.


Article III: On Vigilence
1. As it likely goes without saying, an attack on one signatory of this treaty is to be treated as an attack on all signatories, and additionally, an attack by a signatory should be taken as an attack by all signatories.
2. Any signatory to this treaty has the obligation to inform all other signatories of their intentions to attack another group to the other signatories at least 48 hours before any attack occurs.


Article IV: On Commitment
1. This treaty represents an eternal bond. Once signed, a signatory cannot voluntarily revoke their signature.
2. Any disputes that should arise between signatories are expected to be dealt with in a civil fashion. "Roguing" on your fellow comrades is dishonourable and rude, and all original signatories are in agreement on this point.
3. This treaty can only be amended with unanimous consent of all its signatories.


Article IV: On Internationalism

1. Present Signatories may extend an invitation to any outside alliance to sign this treaty that it deems fitting to the outlined ideals.
1a) Invitation to any outside alliance to sign this treaty must be approved by the Die Linke Foreign Affairs Co-ordination Committee.
2. Any outside alliance invited to sign this treaty that is willing to eternally commit themselves to these ideals must be unanimously confirmed by all its current signatories.
3. Present signatories may invite an outside alliance to enter into an economic and/or military pact with the Bloc. 
3a) Proposal to sign economic and/or military part with the bloc must be approved by the Die Linke Foreign Affairs Co-ordination Committee.
 

 

Article IV: Supporting Documents.
1. Die Linke Foreign Affairs Co-Ordination Committee, henceforth called DLFACC.
 
1a) This committee shall govern the Foreign Affairs Endeavors of the Bloc. Any proposal/invitation to an outside alliance to enter into an economic and/or military pact with the bloc or to sign the Die Linke treaty must be approved unanimously by all DLFACC members.
 
1b) Composition: 
This committee shall consist of two members from each signatory of this treaty. The method of selecting the members representing the signatories shall reside solely with the respective alliances.
 
1c) Duties of the Committee Member
All members of the DLFACC must serve as a link between the members of the alliances they are representing and other DLFACC members. During votes regarding signing of treaties, all members shall rightfully communicate the decision of their respective alliance.
 
1d) Any member of DLFACC who fails to carry out his/her duties shall be liable to forfeiture of DLFACC membership and other retribution as decided by the alliance s/he represents.

Interesting. I like this concept you are using. I know this has been talked about in other blocs, but you are one of the few (maybe first, but I didn't research it) blocs that have merged a department, and also are using bloc wide treaties. This world needs more differences in it, and I love that you are bringing it to the table. Congratulations, DL!

edit: only example I can think of an entire bloc treatying others is the whole SF-Teen Titans MDoAP? were there any others?

Seriously? Where are the haters? Too much sweet is bad for health!

I agree with you Garion.
However its important for us to learn that left is a broad idea which accomodates within itself a wide variety of thoughts. To be frank, i cant imagine Maoists and Bakunin supporters sharing roof unless rent is impossible to pay :p

We dont want to end up like many other bloc-turned- alliances who do well for a few months and then fall apart.
And merging FA Deps gives quite a clear message to the ones having a bit grey matter.
For those who dont get it, we'll try and keep the CNWiki tab displaying our combined strength updated ;)

DL was formed hailing the success of the RL DIE LINKE.
So if sarcasm was intended, it's because you were 'oblivious' (which is quite understandable considering your alliance name)..
