I’m pleased to see that the Intaki Explorer’s Union have landed on their feet in the Intaki system, and are immediately engaging with local humanitarian initiatives.
I can see there’s some confusion and concern regarding the situation in Intaki, and so I’m happy to be able to confirm that there has not been a recent calamity on Intaki Prime.
The Relief Effort was originally established by the Intaki Liberation Front in early YC111 to deal with shortages that came as result of the Caldari invasion of the Placid region.
As time passed, some form of normality returned, and the Relief Effort was scaled back.
More recently, in YC115, a capsuleer-led orbital strike tournament was held over Intaki Prime without consultation, and was immediately condemned by the Intaki Assembly, and Intaki Liberation Front.
While we were all lucky that the focus of the tournament was well away from populated areas, terrible damage was inflicted upon the natural ecosystems and some of the automated infrastructure that supports the towns and cities of Intaki Prime suffered.
Once again, the ILF-led Relief Effort was able to bring in the volume of resources needed at short notice.
Today, thankfully, we are not dealing with any local disasters that require urgent donations of medical supplies, or materials to feed the local economy. However, simple day to day life in low security systems continues to come with some risk.
Some large corporations, like Astral Mining, have the capital and resources available to provide their mining operations with military response fleets, but not everyone is so fortunate, and it’s not uncommon for commercial shipping to be attacked or lost to various pirate groups, such as Serpentis.
This has an affect on the supply chains that feed the Intaki economy, and so the ILF has continued to use the infrastructure of the Relief Effort to mitigate this, as often as we can.
The Intaki Liberation Front continues to welcome the charitable efforts of others, and anything that is not immediately required is handled by our dedicated volunteers at our humanitarian facilities.
Despite its name, the Intaki Prime Relief Effort has gone on to provide relief throughout the Viriette constellation when necessary, and is almost considered to be a standalone charity organisation in its own right.
But we don’t stop at Viriette. People may be interested to know that some of the supplies used by the ILF volunteers that responded to the events in Semiki, came from donations to the Intaki Prime Relief Effort.
Once again, the Intaki Liberation Front and Intaki Prosperity Initiative are extremely grateful for the support the Relief Effort continues to receive.
