Humanitarian Relief for Octanneve V

Doctor.

I own property in Atchafalaya and am working under the auspices of the region’s governance through Clan Licei.

That’s disgusting.

If those donating would like receipts or other proof that the supplies are reaching their destinations, we are happy to provide them.

Since we have your attention, Mr. Arson, would you like to explain your involvement in producing these hurricanes, as regards your publicly-recorded “seeding” comment?

Due to the nature of the issues on Octanneve V, Public access too the Customs office above the planet has been closed. All Unauthorized access is prohibited and will be pursued. For those wishing to gain access to Deliver relief supplies please contact me directly.

Additionally, Police and security forces are being mobilized to protect remaining persons and assets, as well as to bolster local governments.

Thank you

I wouldn’t trust Mr. Arson’s ravings as far as I can throw him.

I hope the funds I transferred will be of assistance.

They will be, Lasa. Thank you very much.

I can confirm that the customs office over Octanneve V does belong to a corporation that is associated with Mr. Arson’s alliance, and has belonged to them at least since the storm itself. Which is why we haven’t been using that customs office.

I can’t confirm or deny that the customs office has been closed to us, because at least one associate of his was sitting in space waiting for me to approach said office, and as I was carrying supplies from elsewhere, I wasn’t willing to find out what would happen.

To be plain, this interference with a perfectly normal rescue and relief operation is absurd and borderline inhumane. I would be interested to know what Mr. Arson stands to gain from this. Perhaps, of course, he was involved in the creation of this disaster to begin with.

As CEO and legal counsel of OLDHR I, for one, would like to see documentation of the proper use of relief assets that our corporation helped manufacture or deliver to Octanneve V, so that I can call Mr. @Drake_Arson a liar to his face, with cause.

Naturally it is not my wish to distract Viavant from relief work, so the documentation can wait until such a time as the acute humanitarian crisis has subsided and resources can be diverted to bureaucratic tasks.

I will state that outside interruption of a “Normal” Crisis is absurd. Documents can easily be doctored and should not be trusted.

The fact you call any form of Humanitarian Crisis as " Normal " Is what is truly disgusting.

With the cut off of outside influence of this disaster, we can focus on clean up and rescue of those in danger and in strife during these hard times. Do not support those who seek to stop or harm these efforts.

It is also disgusting that you turn a statement about “normal rescue and relief operations” into “normal humanitarian crisis”.

I was also going to ask you to document your claims that Dr. Quatrevaux is a scammer but this gives me pause:

Am I to take it as a warning that any documentation that you would yourself produce, Mr Arson, could easily have been doctored and is not to be trusted? What evidence, then, do you put forward of your claims?

I have no need to prove anything.

The Customs Office is under my control. With it supplies are being delivered planet side. Anything else from others will be seen as hostile act. Those who wish to assist are asked to contact me to have the supplies delivered.

This reeks of somebody with something to hide.

I’m not trusting you with any supply donations. Thanks, but no thanks.

He’s tricked people before.

Yes, and he’s also tricking people currently. His “Project Solace” claims to be about ending Triglavian invasions, but it’s really about surveilling Tanoo II and the Tebu Amkhiman freeport. I’ve fought in almost every Triglavian invasion that popped up in Tanoo, and I can say with certainty that not once was he ever involved in fighting those invasions. Also, he had several listening posts set up over Tanoo II, which were shot down by me and a friend.

Not to mention that he’s a Nation loyalist. Also not to mention the horror stories I’ve heard from people he’s stalked and abused. He’s been pushing this wannabe-Butcher act for ages. I’m not surprised that he’s got an agenda here.

I’ve been on the surface of Octanneve V myself. My corporation had data stored in several warehouses near Moisant. Corovid and Viavant were the first groups to respond there. Arson has yet to offer us any assistance. We’ve not received supplies from his customs office. All he’s done is get in our way and make ■■■■ difficult. Maybe he’s actually helping someone else on the planet. But he sure as ■■■■ hasn’t helped Moisant.

We have our own ways of getting goods and people to and from the planet. It’s not the first time I’ve had to engineer a side route for planetary traffic. So yes, the supplies are arriving safely, and yes, we will offer proof of their usages.

Now that we’ve gotten that straightened out, unless Arson wants to confess to seeding the planet’s atmosphere to generate the hurricanes, let’s move on from that giant asswipe of a distraction and get back to helping the folks who need it.

Very well.

Viavant and Corovid workers have succeeded in draining out the last of the standing water and checked all residences and other structures for inhabitants. Our rescue operations are now complete.

We have accounted for nearly all residents of Atchafalaya at this time. The total number of lives lost stands at 7,315. This includes 2,329 children of any gender.

335 residents remain unaccounted for. It is most likely that those individuals were washed out to sea.

There are 30,349 residents still in Moisant. (The full population of the city was around 400,000. The rest of the survivors have been evacuated.) Supplies are being distributed to these people, and most of them are living in a shelter run by Viavant staff, at a location which we will not publicly disclose. I have asked my staff to keep a running tally of which supplies are being used or given out where. We should be able to provide that to interested parties within a week.

We have not yet made use of the medical center, simply because we were previously busy with rescue efforts and have not yet deployed an analysis to determine what its best placement will be. There are very many needs that require addressing, from bacterial infections to stopping the spread of water-communicable diseases, to caring for children and the infirm, to studying the health effects of the atmosphere and exposure to agents such as black mold.

That analysis is forthcoming, and I will be managing it alongside a crew of Viavant’s best doctors and researchers.

For now, we are looking for volunteers to help us rebuild, as well as businesses to establish or reestablish themselves in Moisant. Supplies are always welcome, but are less of an emergency now, as donations have helped us stabilize rations and prepare shelters. Our thanks go out again to everyone who sent us aid in any form.

If you know of a planetside business that might be interested in expanding to Octanneve, please contact me or @Melisma_Ramijozana.

We will continue to provide updates as they come.

I am happy to announce that the situation on Octanneve V has improved greatly. It has been reduced from Emergency to Elevated Risk.

With this great change in status, the Customs office has returned to Open Access for all. Planetary Port customs are prepared for the massive traffic expected.

The situation continues to be monitored.

~Drake

As regards Moisant, any improvement in status is due 100% to Corovid Industries, Viavant, and those who donated to us, not to the shithead who has done his best to keep us from succeeding.

Arson still has done nothing to help Moisant, and if he has done anything to help the continents on Octanneve V, it has not been publicized.

The only good Arson has done is by attempting to take credit for the hard work provably done by others, which has helped us to discredit him in the eyes of former allies and associates of his.

Don’t worry. No one thinks he’s done anything either.

Got a mammoth load of all kinds of ■■■■ for you. Check your contracts.

Got it. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you.

And hope you didn’t have too much of a hangover while you did it.

Apologies for the silence on this front. After the news cycle died down, we chose to operate in relative obscurity due to the threats to our operations noted earlier in this thread.

Our rebuilding objectives are about 30% complete. We focused on the most densely populated areas, meaning that about 60% of displaced residents have been able to return home. The others remain resettled at other locations, primarily on Gallente Prime and Matar.

Two groups of displaced residents were being housed at locations that came under threat due to recent acts of aggression. We were able to ascertain that no one was harmed. We would like to send a special thanks to our partners on that front.

Our current focus is on raising funds to continue rebuilding and rehousing residents. Unfortunately Clan Licei is litigating concerns around liability and insurance. We are looking forward to the Carnival season of YC122, and have several fundraising activities under consideration related to that event.

The first will be the grand opening of CRAFT Bar and Grill aboard the Tebu Amkhiman in January. More details will be available in an event-focused thread, but everyone who pitched in with our rescue and recovery efforts after the storm will be specially invited as our honored guests.

A brief statement that doesn’t require its own thread:

According to The Scope’s news ticker, “Military Coup Carried Out By Colonial Militia on Vevolenel V Claim ‘Dissident Refugees’ Arriving in Octanneve.”

Clan Licei of Moisant—Octanneve V would like to emphasize that we have no knowledge of the military coup that took place eight jumps away, though as refugees ourselves, we feel concern for the welfare of our neighbors in Solitude.

There are a few habitable planets in Octanneve, and the news did not specify whether the dissidents are headed for Octanneve V.

We must emphasize, however, that Octanneve V, and especially Moisant, is not prepared to take on refugees at this time. Speaking for Moisant, we are still in the process of rebuilding, and can offer no shelter and no resources to anyone else, even those in meed. This is a regrettable circumstance due to the storm that destroyed our city only a few months ago.

We are also curious as to whether the same “seeding” that resulted in our hurricanes also played a part in the coup at Vevelonel.

We do wish the best to these refugees and hope they can find safety and shelter with others.

Clan Licei of Octanneve V
