Senator Lief Meets with Members of the 'Nat Turner Brigade'
Senator Lief met with a small squadron of workers' militia members sent to help protect him and his staff, as well as supporters and members of the press, today. He gave the following remarks:
"First of all, I would like to once again share my deepest, deepest condolences with those affected by the terrorist attacks this week. These cowardly actions are shameful and indefensible, and these so-called 'patriots' are the truest enemy of the People.
Second, I would like to thank my good friend and trusted Comrade, Senator TNF, for deploying these fine young men and women, to help us out here in the Northeast. The Nat Turner Brigade is, in my opinion, a shining beacon and example to all Atlasian Workers. They truly exemplify the solidarity, the bravery, and the dedication that defines the Atlasian Worker.
I urge all able-bodied Atlasian Workers to follow their example, to take up arms where possible, and be ready to defend yourself. We do not condone violence, we do not condone sedition--as some of our misinformed critics, well-being though they may be, contend. Instead we stand as a bulwark against aggression and reaction, ready to defend ourselves and our comrades."
