Barsoomian, a term derived from the pulp science fiction novels of John Carter, is an umbrella term for the rebellious and anti-establishment movement for Martian freedom and autonomy. Although its membership is varied, there are three points agreed on by most Barsoomians:
- Terraforming decisions should be made by Martians, not the hypercorps.
- Within the terraforming process, relocation of locals and the phasing out of ruster morphs are also key issues.
- Mars’ Pandora Gate at Ma’adim Vallis should be under Martian control.
- Indentured servitude must end.
Aside from that, mesh neutrality and general economic justice are usually topics of contention with Barsoomians.
