The official rally cry of the Free Mars Movement.
The exact origin is unknown, except that it was scrawled on the distil tent walls and water cavern floors of Mars' Northern Plain as early as M12. The eponynous underground newspaper Onward Cydonia began publishing shortly thereafter, with copies in Multicorp Security possession dated as early as 15 JulyB M14.
Origin and ownership of the slogan is hotly contested among the remaining Mars militias, reportedly at the heart of violence in DecemberA M51 between Face Base and Beloved Red Soil members in Bradbury Cavern.
