The Aotearoan Resistance League is an indigenous insurgent and political organization in the Democratic Republic of Barmenistan. Its goal is the establishment of a Majatran state controlled by the indigenous Aotearoa inhabitants. Alongside ethnic independence, the ARL promotes a socialist system and grassroots democracy. It contains both a political wing and the 'Insurgent Tendency', a rural insurgent army.

HistoryEdit

The party was formed in September 2259, when a group of indigenous rights organizations decided to band together and enter the political arena. The coalition ranged from moderates to communists, but at the organization's first conference in October of that year, it was agreed that a radical socialist ideology would be followed as the party's line. Haere Rangi, a well known tribal leader, was elected as the head of the newly-formed ARL.

At the same time, the most radical branch of the ARL decided that a revolutionary army would be the only means by which the indigenous people could gain their rights. The Insurgent Tendency was formed early in the party's history, and although they do not always operate together, both parts of the organization recognize each other as legitimate representatives of Aotearoan rights. The ARL-IT follows the tactics of 'prolonged people's war': rural peasant rebellion and insurgent tactics against military forces.

IdeologyEdit

The ARL believes that an anti-imperialist line is necessary to maintain indigenous independence. The party supports a nationalist doctrine, but only in the context of Aotearoan control. It opposes any moves toward nationalism or expansionism by White-ruled Barmenistan.

The party also supports socialism and, in the case of many members, full-scale communism (with indigenous aspects). Economic reforms, especially in the area of land distribution and farming subsidies, are a major part of the ARL's ideology.

Many religious, racial, and educational separatist aspects are also present in the ARL's manifesto. Most members follow the mythology and religious beliefs of their ancestors - that the power of the spirit world is passed on by family lines. As such, respect for elders and deceased family members is of great importance to indigenous tribesmen. Due to the wide rift between these beliefs and those of mainstream Christianity (as well as language differences), the ARL supports a racially segregated education system.

Rituals and PracticesEdit

As a militant organization based on a warrior culture, the ARL is known for its use of 'war chants' and tribal dances to gain strength. Before operations, ARL-IT members often perform the Ka Haka war dance, invoking the strength of their ancestors.
