Akarea's Silence Questioned as the World Turns Against Meltor
Kuyuk Toghaimur, ASN Geopolitical Columnist - 12/02/2016 12:11 AST

As the world turns against Meltor in light of the discovery of an industry built on human rights abuses, citizens and politicians throughout Akarea are asking what will happen next.

The Kingdom of Candanadium is leading the rebellion against all things Meltorian; Akarea being Candanadium's longest and most reliably ally, many are beginning to wonder how - and more importantly, when - Akarea will get involved.

Events related to the Meltorian human rights crisis reached the public spotlight in Akarea yesterday when Fujingese internet giant Taitou restricted access to Taitou Feed and services provided by Taitou Search for official Meltorian accounts. Insider reports suggest that Taitou is planning to block all service to Meltor in the coming days. When asked for comment, Taitou referred ASN to the statement they published yesterday which states:

"As the world's largest social media platform, Taitou has a duty to set a global example. We are shocked and disturbed by the state of affairs in Meltor and will be distancing ourselves from the nation.

"Meltorian official accounts will still be allowed to post to Taitou in the interests of public availability of important information. However, interactions with these posts will be restricted. You won't be able to vote on, reply to or republish them.

"We'd like to thank you for your solidarity and support with this cause."

In the hours since this statement was published, over 40 posts from Meltorian corporations and government accounts have been restricted. This has not stopped the Taitou community from reacting to the posts.

"I feel sick." posted user @cumonmyface, quoting another post from the KonigstadtChronicle which referenced one such restricted post.

Another user, a political activist Li Tao, translated KC coverage of the unfolding crisis into two of the four Akarean languages on his blog, posting links to relevant pages on Taitou.

"Akarea's inaction has me restless. I'm disturbed knowing that there's millions of workers in Meltor subject to such awful conditions. I'm doing all I can to help in my current position, which is translate articles and get word circulating around the Union." Li Tao has been blogging about international politics from his apartment in Hyehae for over a decade, occasionally contributing to Akarean public publishers as an opinion columnist and internet culture reporter. He says the influx of traffic to his blog is so huge that Blogzone, the service hosting his website, emailed him asking if he could start posting his content elsewhere to reduce the load on their servers. "The Akarean people are clearly concerned. We need action, and soon."

ASN government correspondents and government press agents refused to comment. Some are choosing to interpret the government's silence as evidence that they are taking a calm, collected and careful approach to their next moves. Others, however, are concerned that swift and decisive action is needed.

"The current international political climate is, you know, we're all clearly raising our heads and preparing to confront the Meltorian abuses." Pran Mookjai, a local councillor for the town of Zhousei in Sun Yan, shared her concerns. "When will Akarea, the closest Kaltach Union member to Meltor, stop sitting by idly and engage this global enemy?"
