This day marks the 6th Anniversary of the Ushra'Khan's founding. As the oldest surviving CONCORD-sanctioned Capsuleer alliance, we can take some pride in marking this milestone.

In truth, it has been a long, hard year. In the same year we achieved one of our greatest accomplishments, we very nearly saw it all unravel before our eyes. Our successes have been the source of much public debate, and yes, our troubles as well. The term 'bitter-sweet' simply does not cover it.

We almost did not make it to this point, a brutal act of corporate espionage saw our alliance plunged into a brief period of turmoil that opened the door to months of gruelling political fallout, and the reforming of the alliance under a new banner; the Damu'Khonde. There is no denying that this was a hard and painful time for us, a forced transition in the midst of a politically volatile region presented us with no end of adversity to overcome.

It is to the credit of every pilot with us today that we survived an event which has been the instant death of many an alliance in the past. It was the strength of conviction and sheer stubborn will of our pilots that pulled us through, even if that determination cost us considerably in a number of ways.

Our troubles throughout this period can with the benefit of hindsight be summarised or analysed at length, but the irony is that the hardship stemmed from success. The destruction of 'Amarrian Providence' came much more suddenly than anyone had anticipated. The attempted expansion of 'Holder' alliances into Catch provoked a response that re-wrote the balance of power and reshaped Providence entirely in a matter of mere months.

A coalition quickly formed with the power to strike a hammer blow to Providence. I am proud to say that we were a part of it, and that our pilots were there in force throughout the campaign, in many cases providing the bulk of the pilots supporting the staggering power unleashed by the super capital fleet spearheaded by our long time allies Against All Authorities. As Station was besieged after I-Hub & TCU were assaulted after Stargates were blockaded, our pilots repeatedly turned out in force to see the job done. It was the fulfilment of years of work, of assembling our forces and gathering allies.

The controversies began in the aftermath of that great campaign. With Amarrian Providence brought down, something had to be created in its place. That 'something' was the loose coalition of alliances gathered to re-settle the region, sometimes referred to as the 'fightclub' or more formally the 'Non-Invasion Pact' alliances. The concept was simple enough; each alliance was free to manage itself, conducting no sov-attacks upon its neighbours but all would band together to face an external threat. The system required trust and mutual understanding, commodities that proved to be in short supply.

Internal frictions were exacerbated by ambitious greed, with some alliances seeking greater power and control over the region. The pact alliances began to schism, subtly at first but increasingly rapidly following the Ushra'Khan's forced reforming. The Damu'Khonde inherited a worsening political climate combined with a contracting membership; with Amarrian influence ousted, some departed feeling their personal goals completed. It became rapidly apparent that maintaining a presence in Providence was no longer a necessity nor desirable to many of us. And so we left for the Great Wildlands.

Controversy it seems has been intent on shadowing us this year. Our hope for the Wildlands was to find a place where we could reconnect with our people, instead we have been confronted by Capsuleers with dubious intentions for the region. An alliance we had thought loyal to the Minmatar cause has instead made demands upon our freedoms, its pilots spout slaver rhetoric and brandish the Pax Amarria in taunt and members of its leadership harbour old grudges towards us from their days of trading in Amarrian Providence! What a disappointment this is. Our hopes for the Wildlands have been swiftly dashed, and we must again readdress our approach to the region in the days and weeks to come.

A long, hard year indeed. As ever for every step forward we take, another step on the long road ahead comes into view. We shall continue to move forwards, for the work is as yet undone and fresh challenges await. As the seventh year of our cause begins, we find ourselves not bound to any one place for long and free to move where we think our efforts best spent.

Sansha Kuvakei himself has returned from the grave, his mindless drones are on the rise. The CVA have re-secured a foothold in Providence, handed to them by Mercenaries in an act of spite. The so called 'Imperial Crusade' continues to threaten the borders of free space. The task before us remains formidable, but we yet live to face it. Despite all that has befallen us and no matter the jeering of self-interested critics, we go on.

We are the Ushra'Khan, we come for our people.

After 6 years our struggle has just begun, for we are the Vanguard of freedom. We shall continue the fight for the next 6 years, 6 decades, even the next 6 centuries if that is what it takes to free our people. We shall not falter, for our cause is just.

I do not speak in any official capacity for Ushra'Khan, as Ugleb does, but when I ask myself what separates the Ushra'Khan from lesser alliances and why it has remained for so long, the answer is clear.

Whereas we are bonded by a common cause - a purpose in the pursuit of freedom from the tyranny of slavers - others are driven by personal greed and aggrandisement.

Many months ago, the soft underbelly of CVA was revealed for all to see when they abandoned their own region without resistance, after the failed invasion of Catch. Many of their membership then fled, seeking reward in more comfortable pastures. And now this same ethically moribund troupe of oppressors return to swell the ranks of CVA as they are gifted fragments of their old space, like treats handed out to an obedient pet.

Ushra'Khan's numbers have similarly been trimmed but the core remains and an elite skirmish force is how we operate best. The weak have identified themselves and scattered, those motivated purely by violence and piracy had already dispersed - the loyal remain to rebuild.

Recently, new neighbours have sought to exploit the state of flux our alliance has be subjected to in an effort to impose their will. But they have underestimated us. We know how to respond to dictators and a new breed of Matari warriors will rise to overthrow the shackles of oppression as others before them. Great Wildlands will prove be the killing fields in which we litter the corpses of our enemies, and they will be the training grounds for the next generation of freedom fighters to hone their skills until we return to defeat CVA once again.

We continue, we rebuild, we grow stronger, we will never yield. And we still come for our people.

U'K, D'K, Freedom Fighters, Terrorists? The label doesn't matter. What matters is that you guys are the finest bunch of warriors I ever had the honer of flying with. We had our ups and downs, however our cause remains just and the same: to free our people! To another six years! To us! Free cloaks for everybody!

The Cockroach can live without it's head for an entire week, survive without food for a month and outlast every human and building in an orbital bombardment of a city.

Congratulations for being the space bearing equivalent for six years.

As long as there is a Republic to fck things up and lull the commoner to sleep, we need people like Ushra Khan as a firm reminder to who we really are. No more, no less.

Thank you warriors of U'K for your continuous effort to show me the mirror, hope you continue to do that for many years to come.

Salutes? So now its the good fight? Some fine EM hypocrisy after 6 years. Go back to your Republic which you love more than your own people and have them negotiate some more treaties with Concord and the Amarr. How's Karin Midular doing these days?

Ushra'Khan....

my brothers.

We have fought many battles together, since the day i was there to see it formed. Paths between us may have altered along the way but our blood pumps within the same vein.

Six years may seem like an eternity, but it is but a short time in achieving goals.
May the war drums of celebration beat for many days.

I shall fight with you again one day.

Whilst we've not yet had much opportunity to meet in space, brothers, I applaud your achievements and wish you continued success in your future endeavours.

It's a rocky road to freedom, but we'll get there in the long run.
