This has been a busy week, between investigating Ushra'Khan activities in amarr space for the report: 'Ushra'Khan liberates slaves in Amarr!' that turned out to be a top story and the travels required to deliver all the colonists safely to Ayem.
The Ayem colony project moves along nicely, the agricultural basis is solidified, providing excess food & the industrial facilities are being set up to provide the colony with basic tools & machinery of their own, to improve the colony's future development.
With 70.000 colonists present, we're on track for the stated goal of 100.000 colonists by the end of this year! This number is important, as it marks the minimum population to sustain a genetically healthy population without the need of a strict genetic program or outside import of fresh genes.
With thanks to capsuleers like Thalysia, thousands have found refuge at the Arcology once more. As they arrive, the refugees will be given a place to call home, and counselling to help them recover from their ordeals. Over time, they'll be able to choose from a variety of job-opportunities at the Arcology.
Now onward to this week's report on the new arrivals!
-55 Prisoners (Part of the Prison Lend-Lease Program)
-30 Science Graduates
-1.320 Freed Slaves
-35 Caldari Light Marines
-1.153 Freedom Fighters
-4 Slavers (Part of the Redemption Program)
Employees for the Nightclub L'Etoile Rouge
-476 Female Exotic Dancers
-662 Male Exotic Dancers
-1 Oura Madusaari (Patients suffering the Oura M. Syndrome)
If immigration continues at this rate, it's expected we'll hit a million inhabitants at the Aurora Arcology by the end of this year! An important milestone that shall be celebrated!
