Happy New Year. Comrade Marhaen released a statement regarding this New Year's event in his speech at the National Park in Vraada.
Greetings ladies and gentlemen. As the representative of the Central Government of the People's Republic of Marhaenia, I wish to address you on this occasion. We have decided not to celebrate the New Year in all of our great nation's provinces for two important reasons. Firstly, in solidarity with the people of Palestine and the Middle East who continue to face the oppression of imperialism. Secondly, due to internal challenges within our government, details of which cannot be disclosed publicly at this time. Your understanding and cooperation are greatly appreciated.
