The Liberation Party is based on Clarion and wishes to end its monarchistic government. Of the 100 seats in the assembly, the Liberation Party usually receives at most 20. The Liberation Party is rumored to support some of the pirate bands that are known to lurk in White Light's asteroid belt. The pirates also are reported to be receiving aid from the Streel Corporation, which was banned from operations on Clarion for 20 years following violations of the Demilitarization Act. Only eight years remain in this sentence, but already the rumors of subversive Streel activity are common. There also are reports that Streel is a heavy contributor to the coffers of the Liberation Party.
