Sons and daughters of Matar,
The history of our time is written in blood. By resisting the Amarrian reclamation of Floseswin, by destroying the armies they sought to use to press-gang our brothers and sisters into bondage, we were fighting for our very existence, our freedom and the need to prove for all to see that we are strong enough to protect our homes and our people.
However, that message has not reached all ears. Even now, as the dust settles on Floseswin IV, The Triglavian Collective, cold, soulless, bereft of tattoos, caring for naught but blood-sport, slink out of their Abyssal holes to prey upon those whom they perceive as weak and divided! Through their conduits, they come into our systems to despoil them, leaving not even the suns that have blessed us with light and warmth for uncountable generations unmolested! I have traveled the cluster and seen the state of darkness that prevails in the systems they leave in their wake:
Some of you have called EDENCOM an Amarrian plot to subjugate our people. I do not claim to possess the political savvy to say whether it is so, nor is it my place as a warrior to argue political matters, but having fought both the Amarr Empire and the Triglavian Collective, I will say this: If the Amarr Empire is a cancer, sapping our strength and corrupting our children, then the Triglavian collective is a stroke, appearing when least expected, and leaving nothing but death and suffering in it’s wake. In this dark hour we cannot let well-deserved hatred for an ancestral foe which has brought us nothing but pain blind us to the mad beasts on our doorstep.
Therefore I say to all true Matari: Stand up, stand up and fight! Fight for our republic! Fight for your tribes, your clans, your families! Fight for everything you hold dear, before it is lost! If it is a test of strength they want, then let us grab them by the testes and hurl them back into the dark whence they came!
