A Kart warship that had been patrolling in the Argusa system has reportedly folded out and analysts suggest it’s vector indicates their destination was towards Nessine. There are currently no reports of the warship in the Nessine system at this point.

This follows yesterday’s statement from the Kart Embassy on Nessine condemning the seizure of the Skyhook from the UNE and criticising them for using the Colonial Security Forces to ‘prop up’ their regime. The Kart Embassy said the trade routes of the Cillia Sector were important to the entire region and they would do everything they could in order to maintain safety and security.

The Nessine Colonial Council declined to comment on this development.

The Nessine Colonial Council has issued a statement today indicating that they authorised and carried out the seizure of the Skyhook using the system police forces. Police marines boarded the Skyhook earlier today and shut down the UNE ran administration. No word has yet been given on the status or whereabouts of the previous UNE Administrator. At present the station remains under martial law.

The statement comes amid continued demands for the resignation of the Colonial Council and immediate elections. Many critics of the Council question their legitimacy as an institution established and appointed by the UNE, who appear to have abandoned the region in recent years militarily and economically.

Without a UNE representative on Nessine; it us unknown at this time how the UNE will react to the seizure of the station and it will be many weeks before anyone will find out.

Anti-government protesters have clashed with Colonial Enforcers on the streets of Nessine after days of peaceful protest turns violent. There have been reported injuries on both sides, and after hours of violence the government has pulled back their enforcers to protect council buildings.

Protesters have been occupying the main square of Nessine for weeks since the controversial expansion of the Skyhook, which is still officially a UNE owned facility, has continued with the funding of the Nessine Colonial Council. Anti-UNE sentiment has been high since the withdrawal of their forces and support 2 years ago.

The protesters initially were protesting the funding of the Skyhook, but now weeks on, the mood has turned to democratic elections and official Nessine independence from the UNE. Many say that the withdrawal of the UNE is a sign that they’ve abandoned the region and that Nessine needs self-governing in order to survive on its own.
