"We have lost a hero to our glorious and noble cause, but does this foreshadow our defeat? NO. It is a new beginning. Compared to Earth Federation the national resources of Zeon are less than one thirtieth of theirs. Despite this major difference, how is it that we have been able to fight this long? It's because our goal in this war is a righteous one. It's been fifty over years since the elite of Earth, consumed by greed took control of the Earth Federation. We want our freedom. Never forget the times when the earth federation has trampled us! We, the principality of Zeon, have had a long and ardeous struggle to achieve freedom for all citizens of our great nation. Our fight is sacred, our cause divine. My beloved brother, Garma Zabi, was sacrificed. Why? The war is a stalemate. Perhaps many of you have become copmlacent. Such a lack of compassion is --
The Earth Federation has polluted our most cherished planet for their own greed. We must send them a message, We have wasted too much words. We need action now. The Earth federation must be taught a strong lesson for their evil corruption. We have been putting more and more money into our efforts towards making our military stronger than ever. The Earth Federation has done the same. Many of your fathers have perished valiantly in the face of a uncontemplible enemy. We must never forget what the Earth Federation has done to our people!!! My brother, Garma Zabi, has shown us these virtues to our own valiant sacrifice. By focusing our anger and sorrow, we are finally in the position where victory is in our grasp, and once again, our most cherished nation will flourish. Victory is the greatest tribute we can pay to those who sacrifice their lives for us!! Rise, our people rise!! Zeon thirsts the strength of its people!! SIEG ZEON!!!!"- Dogwin Zabi's War Speech- Mobile Suit Gundam 0079
"This colony, Sweet Water was made by attaching a close type to an open type, therefore, its highly unstable. It was made hastily to accomodate the refugees who survived the past space wars. This was the only measure taken by the Earth Federation Government. They concluded that everything is fine as long as they had a container to stick refugees in. They remained on Earth and refused to share the planet. My father, Zeon Deikun, had made a request to Earth for autonomy of all immigrants known as 'spacenoids', but he was assasinated by the Zabi family. The Zabi family called themselves Principality of Zeon and launched a war for independence against the Earth. You know how it was to end, with the Zabis losing the war sealing their fate. But the Federation Government had grown arrogant, their forces become corrupted from within, giving birth to rougue federation named Titans and resulting in the brazen activities of Haman, who had falsely claimed as the protector of Zabi Family. This history has made us all refugees!! What is our future reflecting in this tragic history? I firmly believe that mankind must do everything to prevent war from rising again. This is the true intention of dropping asteroid axis to earth. To change the history, hence we will discipline the people who continue to live on earth, to eliminate the source of war in Earth's sphere!!! Everyone!! So we forge our path and create a government for refugees. I ask you to lend me your strength a little bit longer!! When we've succeeded, I can finally rejoin my father, Zeon!!!!"
