Pre-recorded message transmitted to the Head of the Gallente Federation Senate, Militia Oversight Committee, and FEDCAF Chiefs of Staff:
Today I speak with sadness, regret, and firm resolve, on the challenges facing our people, the Gallente Federation, and New Eden at large.
The darkest days of the Triglavian Invasion are behind us. The vast amounts of hostile alien forces that penetrated New Eden have largely withdrawn to their dark Abyssal domain. But the actions taken by the Federal Administration, and forces defending Humanity overall, deserve specific scrutiny.
While we have witnessed on many occasions the power of the Federation Fleet in the defense of her people, specifically, during the events in Solitude all those years ago, and again during the liberation of Caldari Prime during Operation Highlander, However, when the battle came once again to our home, to High Security Space in the Vale system, our forces stood only as a blockade force, enforcing an unconstitutional communications blackout, and otherwise neglecting the billions of Federation citizens trapped on the planets of that system.
We were told this was in accordance with EDENCOM directives, they themselves guided by the CONCORD Inner Circle. But what is the meaning of this? How is it possible, in the course of our history as a democratic society, that we have surrendered the right of when and how to defend our citizens?
It seems clear to me that we have allowed this cabal of bureaucrats at CONCORD to dictate our foreign policy and military operations. President Celes Aguard, who I might claim is more of an absentee president than anything else, has done nothing to speak on this issue, to reassure the public, to liberate those stolen from us. We sit here, and wait. For what? For the Triglavians to come back and do it again? We are no better off now than we were when EDENCOM was first initiated, in terms of fighting this hostile alien force. The pathetic EDENCOM ship and weapons technology that was introduced are so technically flawed my Villore Accords engineering teams still don’t understand why they were made in the first place.
The pervasively secretive nature of the way the Triglavian invasion was handled is no doubt an effort to prevent democratic discourse on the topic. While I do not believe the Triglavians to be benign, I do believe we are being deceived as to the nature of their existence and the nature of the EDENCOM organization overall. I feel we are seeing the dying last gasp of the Jove Empire in the events of these last few years. Their legacy, a deep infiltration of the CONCORD system, and their offshoots in the Drifter cadre and Triglavian Collective, now torment our space fairing societies with threats on all sides.
EDENCOM and CONCORD for all practical matters decided who would be taken and who would be saved. They chose the allocation of defense funds and fleets, they decided who to help and who to ignore. As a result, now billions of our citizens are trapped across the boundaries of subspace and we get nothing from our leaders as an explanation. All we have is a yawning, echoing expanse of silence as everyone pretends things are going back the way they once were.
I refuse to be silent. I refuse to forget those taken. I refuse to believe that secrecy and deceit is the best way to run a democratic nation.
As a result of this, and the ongoing astropolitical situation, the Villore Accords has withdrawn from the Federal Defense Union, and relocated the majority of our personnel and fleets from our primary bases of operation. The Caldari State is in shambles and their border territories are under Federation control for the time being. We are no longer needed there.
The Villore Accords will seek out stronger allies, rebuild our military strength, and prepare for the coming storm. I do not believe this story is over, and simply napping on our laurels in the backwater of Black Rise will not make us ready for the battles to come. We need better enemies to fight, and better friends to fight alongside with.
As a result, the Villore Accords has relocated to the Minmatar Republic and joined the Tribal Liberation Force. We have established forward operating bases in the area and now call upon all those loyal to the cause of Freedom to join us and participate in the Minmatar fight against the Amarr Empire. The Amarr Empire, which was so central to the EDENCOM planning efforts, and diverted so many resources to their slave holding territories, while neglecting the Federation worlds that were seized.
We will test our weapons and skills on Amarrian metal. And when the time comes, we will be reborn into a stronger force, capable of striking back against those that have taken our citizens.
