This is an open call to the crew of the freighter "Arek'Jaalan":
You are, or were, citizens of the State.
The actions of your capsuleer employer, Doctor Hilen Tukoss, have put this into doubt.
If you feel that your loyalty is to the State, not Dr. Tukoss, but you feel like you have no other path, then this message is for you.
You are not alone, for the State looks after its own. You can return to the State, to your families, to your homes. You just have to decide that you want
The Arek'Jaalan Repatriation Fund (ticker AJRF) has opened its doors to assist you on your journey back home.
This is not a call for violence, nor sabotage, nor espionage, nor anything to do with the Arek'Jaalan project itself. I will leave those to the capsuleers with larger plans and deeper pockets. This is a humanitarian offer to bring you home, if you wish to return
. The AJRF will pay for communications to your families and for Interbus travel back to the State. I am offering employment among my crews or on my nascent planetary business venture. If you prefer to find your own employment then the Fund will provide for accomodations and reasonable expenses for your job search. I am also in negotiations with a Wiyrkomi affiliate to provide retraining should you decide you would prefer to follow a different career path. Most of my contacts are in Wiyrkomi and the Navy, but I would be happy to negotiate with Zainou or Ishukone if you would seek to return to your previous employment. You may not have had a choice when this started and you were taken from us, but you have a choice now.
Although I am only newly-certified as a capsuleer and do not have the resources pledged by others
to various purposes
, I have signed over half of my current wealth to the AJRF and I pledge a share of my earnings will continue to go into the fund until it reaches a suitable size to cover all needed expenses. I will increase that share as necessary to meet the needs of the Fund. In case any of you prefers not to use Interbus I have contracted to have an industrial refit for passengers, and will be moving it to the vicinity of Eram within the week. This is not a call for additional donations - with only a few hundred crew to repatriate at the most, I do not anticipate any problem funding this even with my meager means.
I mean no offense to the Minmatar people in this, nor to Eifyr & Co. specifically, as I am sure that both are doing their best to welcome our wayward people. I hope that they will take this in the spirit it is intended, as the Minmatar of all people in the cluster should understand the value of the choice
to return home.
My personal opinions aside, I also mean no additional offense through this effort to those of you - perhaps all - who undertook this change in life direction willingly. You have made your choice, and while I disagree I do not wish to strongarm you into changing it. Please extend the same courtesy to any of your fellows who may wish to return to their homeland, and let them make their own choices in this matter.
I am negotiating contracts with local media outlets to have this offer broadcast on the local comm channels, and to have billboards set up on the business thoroughfares of the Eiftyr & co. station at Eram V - Moon 2, so that those who do not have access to IGS may still hear the offer.
You have a choice. If you still call the State home in your hearts, come back, if that is your will.
