Dear Diary Written Wednesday 11th of January 2017 at 08:32am by Erris

Dear Diary,

Hello.

It’s the 20th of January, 2747

My name is Reese.

This will be my first, and probably last, entry.

We’re heading to the protest today, Sandra and I. We’re human, but…

It’s still wrong, what the UEE are doing, and we have to stand up for them, just like someone stood up for people like us all those years ago.

No. I should…

This is going to be a record, to explain why, to my family, friends, and to history, what happened, and why I had to do it.

So let me explain.

The Tevarin. It all comes down to the Tevarin.

The UEE beat them. Twice. Two different wars, decades apart, and then they just… we just… we enslaved them.

They’re getting some rights now, slowly, but it’s too slow. Even here on Jalan. The Tevarin are beings too. They have thoughts, hopes, dreams… and the UEE just… they just crush them. Grind them under jackbooted heel like some common bug.

Have you ever seen the Tevarin camps? I don’t expect you have. And if you’re reading this in the future, then… then hopefully you never will. Hopefully they’ll be long gone.

Because they are horrible. The Tevarin, living in squalor, stripped of dignity, respect, honour; stripped of the very things that make them Tevarin. Stripped of their belongings, thrown together like cattle, treated like criminals.

It’s like if we stripped humans of our freedom. Of the most important thing we have.

And Moscovitz sits on his throne, sits on his pedestal of power, and he abuses them. He laughs at them, posts videos of them, uses them for sport. He attacks any that try to stand up for themselves, attacks any of us that try to stand up for them.

Well, no more. We can’t let it continue.

We are organized. We are powerful. We are free. We can change the world, for the Tevarin, and for us. We just have to make our voices heard. We have to make our voices heard against the tyranny, the lies, the antagonistic assault, against the hate and fear spread by Moscovitz, spread by him, and those in power under him.

There’s an event today. Moscovitz is holding a rally; a ‘confirmation’ of his power. It’ll be a military affair, but…

We are organized. We are powerful. We are free.

And we are many.

There are more of us than there are like him. And even if they gun us all down, someone will know. Someone will hear. Someone else will rise up and take up the cause.

All he wants is power. All the Tevarin want is their honour. All we want is their freedom.

Mamma, Pa, if you read this… I hope you understand. You always taught me to treat everyone with love and respect and… I hope you can see that I’m just trying to live up to that. I hope you can be proud.

To everyone else, to anyone else, Sandra and I… we know we probably won’t make it back from this. We know how the UEE, how Moscovitz, deals with protestors. Just… don’t forget about us. Don’t forget about the Tevarin.

Don’t forget about Freedom.

Excerpt from the diary of Reese Allanah, 2719 – 2747

This entry, and thousands like it, are kept in the Tevarin Freedom Memorial, in memory of all who fought for Freedom from tyranny, oppression, and the UEE.
