Artifact Returned to the Safety of Museums

19.02.2462

 

An ancient banner, dating around the 13th century A.I., was returned to the safety of the Miran’mir Academy of Scientific Pursuits this week. The artifact was found in 2461 during the excavations of an ancient battlefield in the province of Dymtris. The flag had been frozen in ice and it was well preserved. The standard was made with silk and gold thread, displaying a religious icon of S'rendarr. The object was named “Dymtris Banner” by its finder. Archeologists were divided between two theories: One claims that the item was only three hundred years old and was used during pre-revolution campaigns. The other hypothesis affirmed that the flag was weaved during the Warring Kings Era on Ras’nrr, it was later brought to Harr’masir during the Suns War. 

The artifact was shipped to Tau Ceti at the start of this year, with the purpose of having its age verified by better-equipped laboratories. After initial tests, the second theory was invalidated. However, while the relic was being returned to Adhomai, its shipment was misplaced. The Dymtris Banner was sent to a NanoTrasen space station, the NSS Aurora, alongside a large haul of explosives. Kamyar Hourany, the curator of Miran’mir’s museum and responsible for the safety of the flag, boarded the facility to recover the missing item. Kamyar discovered that some unknown force planted several replicas among the shipment, in an attempt to fool the academy’s personnel. Faced with the threat of losing a piece of the Tajaran history, he acted fast with the help of the crew. After two hours of search and tests, he was able to recover the object with the aid of xenoarchaeologist Zirhal Rkanazirr, research director Rhashalii'rmirhan Khazmahr, assistant Muhawir Nawfal and janitor Viggo Mab.

The Dymtris Banner will now join the collection of the Miran’mir Academy of Scientific Pursuits. Curator Kamyar and the administration of the university have offered their gratitude to the crew of the NSS Aurora. Without their help, this part of our past would be forever lost.

Parliament Meeting is Interrupted by Protest

16.05.2462

 

Today a typical meeting between the Parliament and the King was interrupted by an unexpected demonstration. As King Azunja and the parliamentarians finished discussing future economical and political embargos against the Izweski Hegemony, a crowd of at least forty Tajara interrupted the assembly. The group, formed by Kaltir citizens, sailors and members of the Commoners Party, started to shout and protest. They demanded more popular representation and the creation of electable positions in the Parliament. The parliamentarians on site replied by yelling and ordering their removal. The guards were unable to move the protesters. King Azunja tried in vain to reconcile both sides. 

Kaltir’s constables arrived at the Parliament twenty minutes later. The crowd was successfully dispersed by law enforcement, however, no arrests were made. The Commoners Party contacted the Crown after the incident, presenting their demands. They asked for the establishment of an elected house in the Parliament’s ranks, so the voice of the people may be heard. ”It is necessary to recognize the importance of the people. The Kingdom would not survive without their support” - they claimed in a strongly worded letter. Members of the Commoners Party have threatened the organization of more protests if their requests are not met in due time. King Azunja retired to the Imperial Palace without offering any statement on the situation.

Protests Takes Over the Streets of Kaltir

25.06.2462

 

The Commoner’s Party has brought the people of Kaltir to the streets, as they had threatened to do previously. Thousands of Tajara left their homes to protest in the capital, blocking important streets and thoroughfares while bringing life in the city to a grinding halt. Many protestors gathered before the parliament building and the courtyard of the Imperial Palace. They request the establishment of electable positions in the parliament, seeking greater representation of the population in the government. Sailors have also shown their support to the cause, organizing their own demonstrations on ships and in ports.

The Crown has not released any official statement in regards to the protest yet. However, multiple parliamentarians, mainly from the Royal Party, have declared their intentions of not acquiescing to the population’s demands. The Commoners Party, alongside some members of the Officers Party, have released a announcement:

Quote

The Kingdom is built upon the blood of the commoners that valiantly defended our right to exist. It is a mistake to not listen to their voices. They do not seek to return us to the Republican yoke, but only for a chance to have their concerns voiced by representatives that they trust. We believe that King Vahzirthaamro Azunja has the wisdom to understand this; he has wisely led our people for years.

The entire contingent of the constabulary of Kaltir has been deployed to maintain the order and safeguard the city’s property during the protest. Most of its forces are concentrated around the parliament and the palace, stopping the protestors from getting too close to those important buildings. Protests were reported as well in Miran’mir and Dymtris. The demonstrations have remained peaceful so far.

Tensions Rises in Kaltir During Demonstrations

27.06.2462

 

King Azunja remains silent as the protests enter their second day. The protestors have become more restless, thanks to the lack of response from the Crown. As the protests continue, reports of clashes between the protestors and constables have become more common. Several arrests were made, with charges that include vandalism, trespassing and insulting the King. Most of the streets of the capital have been marked as off-limits to protestors, forcing the demonstrations to happen before the Parliament and the palace’s courtyard. A crowd now stands before the home of the Azunja dynasty, asking for more representation and holding portraits of the loved ones they lost during the war.

Some sailors have taken further action during the protests. Two ships, the HMS Rredouane and the HMS Dolor, have set sail without orders from the Royal Navy command. Both vessels are now sailing around Kaltir’s bay as a sign of the crew’s support towards the protestors. They have told their superiors that they do not plan to return to port until the people’s demands are met. Any civilian ship attempting to approach the dock is being told to return by the sailors. Some eyewitness claimed that the HMS Rredouane has aimed its guns towards the capital. The Kingdom’s military stands divided before this event, with many suggesting that such is an act of mutiny. Field-Marshal Rrhazhal Zarkradar'Akhan has ordered the city’s garrison to arm and prepare themselves in case of conflict. Kaltir’s coastal defenses are in full alert.

Parliament is seemingly paralyzed by this crisis, and is unable to take decisive action without the presence of the King. The Crown Heir has recently addressed these concerns; she claimed that King Azunja is unable to attend any session of Parliament due to suffering from a mild illness. Some parliamentarians suggested making a decision despite His Majesty’s absence; members of the Officers Party have threatened military intervention if this happens. Field-Marshal Rrhazhal has promised to stand with the King no matter what.

The Crown Concedes to the People’s Demands

29.06.2462

 

Tensions continued high this morning. The HMS Rredouane and the HMS Dolor remained on patrol in Kaltir’s bay, and the Palace courtyard remained full of protestors.. However, the Parliament was able to hold a meeting with King Vahzirthaamro Azunja. After hours of discussion and negotiations they reached an agreement. A new chamber will be created in the Parliament: the Chamber of Commoners. It will be composed of elected representatives that will serve a term of three years. Any citizen, noble or commoner, will be able to occupy those positions. Despite this, the new house holds considerable less power and seats than the inheritable titles - a simple majority from the Chamber of Nobles will be able to overrule the decisions made by the Chamber of Commoners.

Alongside the concessions to the Commoner’s Party, the Crown has made other compromises to the members of the Parliament. Promises of relaxing the draft and increasing funds to modernize the army were made. Amnesty to the sailors that participated in the HMS Dolor and HMS Rredouane mutiny was also granted. The news were received with celebration by the population. The protestors in front of the Imperial palace became a cheering crowd when the changes were announced. The ships blocking Kaltir’s bay docked soon after the meeting was over. The sailors were welcomed with open arms by their colleagues; they were dragged to a pub to commemorate. The city’s garrison stood down, returning their weapons at the orders of the Field-Marshall.

The protests came to an end by the night; as most of the population returned to their homes. King Azunja retired himself to his private quarters shortly after the meeting, offering no further insight into the situation. Elections for the Chamber of Commoners are expected to begin in two months.
