[These posters replace the End the Legion Posters]
According to the decree by the council of Arabel:
No Penal Legionnaire has ever been forced into the cloak, they have all put it on willingly when given the choice between the legion or paying a fine/being executed
Serious Crimes are not finable offenses, regardless of what the lawbook states. Only nobles and high priests can pay a fine for serious crimes, the choices for commoners are legion or prison time.
Legionnaires are not given orders and must volunteer for martial duties. Every legionnaire serving in wartime or guard duty in downtown volunteered for service and was not forced.
Legionnaires only wear the cloak to ensure lawful action during their time in the cloak and serve the community. They are not ordered servants and are free to conduct their own business and travel as long as they do not break the law.
At no time has any militia member put a cloak on someone after being ordered to, they received to order to "cloak" someone and then gave the criminal the choice to wear the cloak or pay the fine.
If any of these statements contradict with the real and truthful cases of legion service, I ask witnesses to contact me so an investigation into misuse of the legion can be initiated. If these statements are true 100% of the time, then the legion may not actually be slavery, but if they are not, well, then we still have a problem on our hands.
Also of important note, it is now considered treason and a capital offense to call the legion slavery, according to today's decree by the council of Arabel.
