335.19 // Race Riots in Ord Mantell

Riots have ensued following a disagreement between two merchant communities on Ord Mantell 1740 GST. The two communities, Bothan and Gran, claim that they didn’t want it to escalate to this level but there has been growing tensions ever since a Union was formed in the Trader’s Quarter, which caused the Gran merchants to suffer at taxing changes for their cargo. Local residents ask that authorities act appropriately at the parties, and not at them. They fear that the violence by the local enforcement may give them a reason to conduct corrupt policing searches, using the riots as a cover.
