Victory Day Parade Begins After Delays3.08.2459
After the parade was finished and a number of patriotic pieces were played by the Presidential Band, however Yasmin Piaf was not in attendance this year. Following the Presidential Band performance, the crowd roared and cheered for nearly thirty minutes before President Hadii appeared on the balcony of the Steeple and asked them to be quiet before giving his speech.
"Fellow Tajaran," he began using his famous words from last year's speech, "Though it has been a whole year since we have driven the enemy away from Nal'tor, though air raids on our capital are a relic of the past, the war continues in full. Though our neighborhoods are safe, many around the People's Republic are still attacked, destroyed, and burnt to the ground by the savage traitors of Nated and the extremist regressive rebels of Kaltir. Make no mistake, they will continue until either we are all put under the brutal dictatorship of Nated, or enslaved by the bloodthirsty Azunja.
But although they fight, we fight harder. The People's Republic of Adhomai is not only strong but also the sole and legitimate government of not only all of Adhomai but of all Tajara. You saw here today that the youth organizations who will one day inherit our Republic and take it proudly into the future. They were here in place of the strong young men and women of today who are on the frontlines right now securing that future for the young to inherit. Never give up, never surrender. Just as my brother Rhagrrhuzau was iron-willed in his resolve to make a better Adhomai, so too must we strive unending."
The speech was followed by another thunderous applause with many cheers as President Hadii walked to the diplomatic section of the balcony to shake hands with representatives from the Republic of Biesel, The Nralakk Federation, and the Hegemony. A representative from NanoTrasen was also there whom the President also shook hands with, afterwards finally reaching the Sol Alliance ambassador for the last handshake.
Following the parade and celebrations, the Ministry of Defense announced that the New Kingdom of Adhomai offensive on the Harr'masir continent was halted by Republican Army units based out of Olska who reinforced the driven back Dymtris units.
