For the past few weeks, I've been watching them. There have been an increasing number of large gatherings of people in certain station areas. I can't speak for other stations but I've definitely noticed it on my stayover on moisson and here on the yards.
But it looks like I'm not the only one whose noticed these congregations of citizens. Usually during one of their meetings, there's an increased security presence close by.
Finally, today the administration announced it opened registration for so called "syndicates". I guess it's their way to exact control on these groups and manage what they're allowed to do. I suspect this has been enacted on all consortium stations at least. I do wonder if the gaule are colaborating on this matter and whether syndicate foundation will pose a significant thrett to those not in the know.
