Propaganda Prompts Rimma HoloNet Blackout
SESWENNA SECTOR NODE – To stem a tide of anti-Republic rhetoric and propaganda flowing from up the Rimma Trade Route from the Sluis sector, Republic intelligence agencies approved the shutdown of the Sluis sector HoloNet node. Neighboring Mayagil and Seswenna sectors have been inundated with pro-secessionist propaganda through public HoloNet channels following Sluis’s separation. The SBI has deflected criticisms of a government-mandated decrease in civil liberties. “This isn’t about freedom of speech. The HoloNet is a Republic asset, and Sluis sector has opted to leave the Republic. It’s well within our jurisdiction to shut down their network during this crisis,” said SBI Director Armand Isard.
