Musical Protest Surprises Libertas
by By Iris Dunnigan
CITADEL, THE PRESIDIUM- A series of drones appeared in the streets of Progress, the capital of the human dominated colony world of Libertas (see Cartoonist Tried in absentia), and began to broadcast music by Tempest-M, a well known Archo-Techno DJ from Omega. When the authorities tried to shut down the drones, said devices led them on a chase throughout the streets and skies of the city while more drones appeared in public spaces and commercial districts broadcasting projecting holographic animations of non-humans dancing to the music. The non-human characters come from the popular alternate reality fiction, Laura the Star Fighter, whose author is on the run from the colonial authorities. Eventually the police gun down the drones, but not before the impromptu performance ended.
It is believed by sources in the colony that this was a protest against theocratic rule of Lord Darcy, which includes not only strong religious overtones but also imposes severe restrictions on non-humans within the colony and levies harsh sanctions against those who trade with aliens. A brief message in multiple forums across the extranet read, “YOU CAN’T STOP THE RHYTHM”.
