A number of armed militias have taken control of key strategic facilities throughout the Cornwall region following their recognition as a protected national minority. Confirmed occupied areas include the Newquay Cornwall Airfield, the Falmouth ferry landing and the BBC Radio Cornwall studios.
The British parliament has already moved to freeze the bank accounts of suspected Cornish activists, while the US has promised a program of stringent sanctions to bring the rogue region back under British control.
A spokesman for the group occupying BBC studios told Underground Magazine “We are merely trying to ensure that the long oppressed Cornish minority are protected from a backlash by the reactionary government in London. We do not want this brutal propaganda machine to continue to spread lies about these peaceful civilians.”
Separatists in Cornwall have been active in the region ever since the anti-cornish coalition came to power in 2010. “They may have green lit some funding for Cornish language education but we’ll never forget when they tried to tax our staple food in 2012,” said one visibly angry protestor. “For attempting the genocide of the Cornish people through induced famine we are calling for Osborne and Cameron to be brought before the Hague and tried for war crimes.”
NATO troops are understood to already be amassed in nearby England leading to fears a military confrontation could be possible. Scottish first minister Alex Salmond had stated that he is monitoring the situation closely and will not hesitate to protect Celtic interests if “people who merely want to ensure their safety continue to be oppressed by the fascists in Westminster”.
