Chief Rubio had called the mayor into his office. The recording was a stunning piece of evidence proving the lies coming from White Town.
The mayor listened and when the chief finished, he said, “This is all we need. It’s an important time for us, no more repression. They have the law on their side, but guess what? They wrote the law. It’s time to put an end to this.” Mayor Peña had heard everything and he knew he had few options. He’d been pushed for years by the White Town authorities, but never like this. “Make a public statement and have your men ready to act on this. We’re going to declare an end to ghettos today.” He stood and solemnly left the room. He had calls to make to the mayors of the other ghettos across the country. He needed cooperation.
The chief called a meeting to let his men know the story, he arranged for a patrolman to pick up Eve from Ron and Christine’s house. “In fact, take the couple she’s living with too. They all need to be in a safe house.” He told the men what he wanted them to do, to be prepared for riots and possibly an open war.
The news reporters were then notified of his pending press conference. Everything was set. Within an hour, Chief Rubio walked out to meet the crowd, to deliver a message that could send the country into a tail spin. He had always known the day would come, but still wasn’t prepared.
Guns were illegal, except for those issued to officers of the law. But everyone knew that there were plenty around that had been bought from the black market.
Within hours, gun fire could be heard, flashes lit up the sky from heavy artillery. The fights started in White Town, just outside the community of Scarsborough Meadows. It had been a tribute to Conchita to begin their war near the street where she’d been killed.
In Latino Town, Asia Town, Black Town, all the townships, there were protesters in the streets chanting. “Death to the people who killed Conchita!”
Communications spread throughout the country over the internet. Within hours, a technical team from Black Town had set up a social network called Operation Conchita, exposing the war for the entire global community to follow. Every state in the Union was involved, the organization took place within a staggering short period of time. It demanded the end of suppression, asking for cities across the Nation to take part and march through the White Towns of America. Claim their government buildings. Take prisoners. This was the beginning of a new Civil Rights Movement. This was the beginning of the end of dominance over citizens of the country. In the name of Conchita, all states in the Union declared war on their own Nation.
News analysts debated on the semantics of it all. Some called it Civil War, others argued it was just a Social Movement and would be over within a few days.
Protesters in D.C. were on foot, armed with bats. They planned to infiltrate Liberty Square just outside the municipal buildings in White Town. Their intention was to take over the mayor’s home, and finally the President’s. Some of the troops were assigned to march to these different residences, some were aiming for Liberty Square. But their numbers before splitting off were impressive. Tens of thousands of them.
The army was armed unlike the protesters, and had instructions to take all officials as prisoners. Prisoners that would be tried by the heads of government from various ghettos. It had been 30 years since many of the people had lost their rights as citizens of the United States, 25 years since they had been banished to their townships. This day was the beginning of the end of their suppression. This was a day for all to unite and destroy White Town, the day to make the fears of people that lived in a place like Scarsborough Meadows come true.
