"Under this directive, any and all Jedi leadership must be executed for treason against the Republic. Any soldier that does not comply with the order will also be executed for treason."
―Clone Commander Rex, on the implementation of Order 66
Empire Day is celebrated as the day that the Emperor reorganized the Republic into a Galactic Empire and simultaneously defeated the threat of the Jedi order, deemed as traitors of the Republic upon the initiation of Clone Protocol 66. The great Jedi purge began with one simple order given by the Emperor to his commanders across the stars, “Execute Order 66”.
To celebrate the founding of the Galactic Empire and the peace (and order) it brought to all of its citizens, many cities across the galaxy have begun a reenactment of the momentous occasion that treachery was stopped and the Jedi threat was eliminated. Perhaps you still have your own suit of Clone Armor on standby? Citizens are encouraged to suit up and join in the scheduled festivities in the following locations over Empire Day to take part in reenacting this glorious time in our history:
Roughly 15 minutes to the start time of these events, you can meet up with your local “Commander Cody” who will help organize and break down your “mission”. Don’t forget to show up in your finest Clone Trooper armor!
