SENATE ROTUNDA, CORUSCANT - Continuing a tide of Outer Rim secessions, the Lahara sector, represented by Senator Tyreca Bremack, formally announced its separation from the Republic during Senate session today. "I have no doubt that many of my colleagues here have no idea where the Lahara sector is. They couldn't even find it on a map if their careers depended on it, but we've been burdened with high taxes and little to show for it for too long," said Bremack, as she tendered her Articles of Secession. "Perhaps now you'll notice us, if only for our absence." The Lahara sector consists of 245 settled worlds, most of them agricultural producers.
