I am sorry to report that due to combined capsuleer and government interference with the operations of SoERR waystation Freedom’s Gate at Thebeka, we have decided it is the safest course of action to change the status of the station from primarily a humanitarian waystation into a combat base.
Electus Matari warships with their usual marine contingents have started to arrive to the station, among them those of Challis Drant, the alliance executor. What ground logistics and support capacity we have will now be put directly into strengthening operations against Praetoria Imperialis Excubitoris. We will still offer assistance to any individuals who come to the station seeking shelter but this cannot remain the primary operation of this base.
Superfluous civilian staff is already being evacuated and will find work in the humanitarian base in Mabnen, which is on a secure Freedom Extension station, and will continue to operate normally.
Station access restrictions will start to apply during tomorrow.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
CEO, SoE Roughriders
