Is a strike wave hitting the Solar System ?

It seems the strike of the OCP Amalthea workers has inspired others to do the same. As of yesterday, all contact with mining colony LC-247b has been lost. NewRock Mining Inc., the owner of the facility, has sent a ship to the asteroid base, but because of its orbit, it will take considerable time to reach it. According to the SevCol Flight Plan Log, no other ships are currently in the vicinity.

NewRock Mining Inc. is a new, fast growing company, that has succesfully established mining colonies in de Ceres Belt and Jupiter System. Worker conditions are generally reported to be reasonable, but as the Amalthea Strike shows, strikes can break out in unexpected places.

NewRock Mining stock has fallen by 3.4 %
