The Condor Initiative (Creeperian Spanish: Iniciativa Cóndor) is an ongoing campaign in Creeperopolis to oppress denial, commendation, and questioning of the De-Catholization. Communists, socialists, members of the National Council for Peace and Order, and atheists are common targets. The Condor Initiative is mostly commanded and conducted by the National Intelligence Directorate, Creeperopolis' secret police force.
The Condor Initiative was passed unanimously by the Council of Mayors by a margin of 6,123 for, 0 abstain, 0 against, and 0 absent, on July 6, 1950.
As a direct result of the passage of the Condor Initiative, denial, commendation, and questioning of the De-Catholization was made illegal in Creeperopolis. Denying, commending, and questioning the De-Catholization are punishable by the death penalty. The most notable execution on the basis of De-Catholization denial, commendation, or question is the Massacre of the Seven Thousand.
Since July 6, 1950, several methods of execution have been used included:
- Burnings[lower-alpha 1]
- Crucifixions[lower-alpha 2]
- Falls from a helicopter
- Firing squads[lower-alpha 3]
- Gas inhalations[lower-alpha 4][lower-alpha 5]
- Stonings[lower-alpha 6]
The Creeperian government officially lists 3,195 executions as a result of the Condor Initiative as of June 2020. The official toll notably excludes the Massacre of the Seven Thousand and other undocumented legal and vigilante execitions. Experts estimate that the total number of exections ranges anywhere from 20,000 executed up to 75,000 executed. Experts also note that very few people found guilty of denying, commending, or questioning the De-Catholization were handed prison sentences instead of being executed and that the vast majority of executions occured withing two weeks of being found guilty of denying, commending, or questioning the De-Catholization.
Notable people executed as a result of the Condor Initiative include:
- Ricardo Klement Encarnación, a DEMÉDÉL officer who was the Teguracoa camp doctor on from 1936 to 1949, was lynched and mutilated during the Massacre of the Seven Thousand April 5, 1957.
- Pascual Espinar Casaus, the former Minister for Public Safety from 1934 to 1949 and leader of Miguelist partisans following the civil war from 1949 to 1953, was beheaded by the 15th Creeperian Army on August 14, 1953.
- Antonio Gisbert Alcabú, the President-in-Exile from February 19, 2020, to June 17, 2020, was publicly executed by a firing squad of Cruzadore II main battle tanks on June 18, 2020, after being found guilty of 110 charges following Operation Banana the day prior. One of his charges was De-Catholization denial.
- TCN Resolution 010 banned the use of fire in executions on March 28, 2020. The Creeperian government has not officially executed anyone using fire but many reports claim that the government continues to burn people alive for denying, commending, or questioning the De-Catholization.
- The use of crucifixion is used ironically to ridicule the the condemned for denying, commending, or questioning the divinity of Jesús Cristo by making them die the way Jesús Cristo did.
- The conventional method of execution by a firing squad of soldiers is nearly used every time the firing squad has been chosen as the method of execution. The one exception was the execution of President-in-Exile Antonio Gisbert Alcabú who was publicly executed by a firing squad of Cruzadore II main battle tanks on June 18, 2020, after being found guilty of 110 charges following Operation Banana the day prior. One of his charges was De-Catholization denial.
- The use of gassing is used ironically to ridicule the condemned for denying, commending, or questioning the Miguelist uses of gas chambers in all six of their extermination camps.
- Those condemned to be gassed are either gassed in a gas chamber or are gassed in a gas van as a way to ridicule the condemned for denying, commending, or questioning the Miguelist uses of gas chambers in all six of their extermination camps.
- The use of stoning is used when the civilian population of an area demands to execute the convicted themselves.
