Washington DC (PRWEB) March 23, 2010
A group calling itself the People's Independent National United Party claims to have formed a new version of the Soviet Union, and plans to nominate a candidate for the next U.S. presidential election.
Spokesperson Alan P. Huber says that the New Soviet Union is very different than the former one. "The New Soviet Union supports certain aspects of Marxism but rejects authoritarianism. We are committed to human rights and the removal of government interference in people's lives."
According to Huber, the new nation-state is not limited by geography or ethnicity. "Some of our founding members are from Russia, but the New Soviet Union is global and transnational. We invite the people of every existing country to join our nation, where they can enjoy the benefits of dual citizenship. Two states of the former Soviet Union have already expressed interest in joining, and we are reaching out to others. We plan to nominate presidential candidates in several countries, including the United States."
The group's agenda includes free access to natural resources. "Our position is that natural resources are owned by every person on Earth and should not be privatized or capitalized. No one should be forced into the slavery of capitalism in order to just survive. That means equal and free access to all for basic necessities. We simply want to make participation in capitalism optional and not mandatory."
The group has re-appropriated the original Soviet flag, with its hammer and sickle emblem, but has changed the background color from red to green. "The green background signifies the New Soviet Union's commitment to peace, human rights, individual liberty and environmentalism."
Huber says that the group is currently revising its manifesto and is in the process of applying for formal recognition by the United Nations.
