Never bend the knee!

 With everything packed and valuable stuff moved out to high sec, I'm about to engage my previous coalition brothers from CVA. I truly liked Provi and to be honest I'm not keen on leaving this place we've called our home for a long time, but when things take a turn for the worse I stick by my alliance (of sound mind) and my leadership's decisions and we don't give into pressure put on by our coalition leader CVA if it's not justified.

Let me  explain a bit. I'm in Of sound mind, a small alliance who are part of the CVA block. We don't rent any sov but we've been very actively defending our territory from reds and we hold on to our NRDS agreement. The tensions with one of the blue corps "Volt" has been rising for quite some time now. It started when one of their guys made a mistake of putting up a public jump freighter contract for 0 isk which our CEO picked up. We got accused of stealing that jump freighter when we refused to give it back for 0 isk because stupidity should not be rewarded. After all the JF got returned for a pretty low amount of isk because of all the drama this event was causing.

Things calmed down for a while but the resentment from Volt towards us was very obvious. Nothing significant happened and we tried to stay out of the Volt territory and just minding our own business, trying to defend Provi from reds and helping out new players and neuts entering the region.

Nothing really happened for a while, but yesterday we got reset and set KOS by CVA
supposedly for killing the Volt player 'Heinrich Hoss' who was reportedly killing not-kos neutrals and excessively smack talking in local. Because of this our FC refused to reimburse the player and a shit storm started building up.

The Volt player started to cry to his diplos and the whole situation got out of hand from that point on.
In my opinion, it should have ended there, with the diplo explaining the player about his behavior, but it didn't. Volt launched a full on diplo attack and started nagging to the CVA coalition leaders.

The fact that CoreBloodbrothers, one of Volt's main FC's, ran for CSM8 and did not get elected when   one of our members, Ali Aras did, plays probably also a part in this whole story. We refuse to bend our knee just because of some power trip and jealousy.

Yesterday we received a mail that we were set neutral and had 24hours to leave our sov to CVA and get the hell out. We responded that we would stay in our home system until it wasn't accessible to us anymore and that fire would be returned to anyone shooting at us. 12 hours later we got set to red and Kos.

We won't win this fight, but we won't bend the knee!
