Since the fall of Canterbury to the newly installed dictatorial regime, a few of the deposed representatives have escaped the closing net and set up a government in exile. Vowing to “continue to serve you in your region”, this ragged band will fight to keep the flame of democracy alive.
With the support of powerful external allies the new dictatorship has moved rapidly to consolidate its control of vital infrastructure and resources, and impose its will on the populace. A Soviet style purge of public records has begun. Massive protests in the troubled city center have been ignored by the international media, but video footage shows that a widespread popular uprising is in progress.
The UN Security Council has so far made no official comment, but thoughts of the free citizens of the world are with the people of Canterbury at this very difficult time.
