The New Prophet Christian Movement is a religious movement originating on Hoveyda. De-facto led by an enigmatic figure called The Prophet, the movement in its rhetoric stresses flat hierarchies and the equality of all sentients.
In the late 3190s, the movement has started to significantly increase its influence and political activities, focusing on labor rights issues and the fight against monopolized market structures specifically. Its recent involvement in union activities on Asa have put the movement at odds with powerful megacorp Sunbeam Multistellar.
During the takeover of Majid by the Mandarinate, in the early 3190s, the movement managed to gain a foothold in the mining industry that the Mandarinate was attempting to monopolize. To the displeasure of the Mandarinate, the New Prophets have recently managed to expand their influence among the mining class on Majid. Their control of a few minor mining interests turning them into a larger economic threat to the Mandarinate's hold on Majid.
According to a recent study, the rapidly growing New Prophet Christian Movement is particularly popular with working class sentients, but to a lesser degree also environmentalists from all strata of society. However, critics have accused the populist movement of pandering and manipulative rhetoric and pointed out the in-transparent nature of its funding.
