LJ: Scorched Mars

As I watched the mushroom cloud billow over Clarke Dome, I could help a fierce smile of satisfaction. At dozens of sites around Mars, similar clouds were rising. The rule of Earth over the humans on Mars was no doubt coming to an end.

After all, we knew where the tunnels were and how to get in. Earth still relied on the Domes.

This would get their attention. We had tried to go through political channels, to no avail. Then we had shut down the factories planet-wide, going on strike.

What I was watching was just another kind of strike.
