On the 15th of this month of May, ten years ago, the FNS Wandering Saint piloted by Federation Admiral Alexander Noir rammed into the Ishukone headquarters in Malkalen and murdered countless innocent Ishukone civilians. In doing so, he also killed our revered CEO, Otro Gariushi, and simultaneously eroded any hope of progressive peace talks between the State and the Federation.
That was ten years ago.
Now, Ishukone remains a powerhouse of technology, innovation, economy, and diplomacy within the Caldari State. Despite significant and tragic losses, our corporation and our people endured. We pushed through together. Against all odds, we succeeded. Now, as we look back to remember somber moments of our past, we must also remember to celebrate our resilience.
The Ishuk-Raata Enforcement Directive and Arataka Research Consortium would like to extend an open invitation to anyone who supports Ishukone and its subsidiaries to join us in celebration of the lives lost in the Malkalen Incident, and their legacy which we carry on today. In the past, annual memorial events around the Malkalen Incident have been rather somber and serious. This year, we would instead like to take a different tone - one which celebrates the lives of all of those who perished that day. Though physically not with us any longer, their spirits guide our actions, and have led to Ishukone being stronger today than it ever has been before. This, we believe, is something worth celebrating.
When: YC120.05.15, 20:00 NEST
Where: Malkalen, Ishukone headquarters
What: A celebration of our past and future; flying an Ishukone-designed hull is recommended; fireworks will be provided but the launcher will not
Who: Anyone who supports or is loyal to Ishukone and its subsidiaries
Note: The event overall will be fairly informal. However, there will be a period of time during which both I-RED and ARC will make public statements. These statements are expected to be made some time around 21:00 NEST. Aside from this, feel free to enjoy the processions either in space or on board the Ishukone HQ in the “Gariushi-Yanala Lounge”.
For Ishukone! For the State!
