The 2012 Metsarbarros unrest refers to a series of heavy rioting, protests and violence by the Malpuro Alconbrians against the Alconbrian army in the Metsarbarros due to the ratification of the second draft of the Malpuro Laws by the Léialegis, and the increasing Alconbrian construction in the Metsarbarros.
The uprising began on 18 August, 2012 in the Metsarbarros's second largest city, Surterreno where civilians affiliated with the Malpuro Liberation Party began rioting after their peaceful protest for separation yielded no results. The riots soon spread to other cities when the military and police were called off by Rjeyar Arlcerex. To deter further protests, Secretary of State Laurel Copete ordered the bombing of the The Holy Cross Hospital in Insentte, one of the three functioning hopsitals in the Metsarbarros. The Alconbrian Air Force destroyed the building, killing over 1000 protesters and patients.
Methods of protest include general strikes, riots, arson, kidnapping, molotov cocktail throwing at soldiers, hunger strikes, barricading, looting and allegations of suicide bombing and terrorism by the Government of Alconbria. On 30 December, 2012, President Ernesto Titeriez announced that the uprising was squashed, and honored the 11 fallen soldiers, and Tomas Spanni, the Alconbrian photographer who was kidnapped and executed by the MLF. As per government statistics, 18,273 Malpuros were killed and nearly 30,000 were wounded. 12 Alconbrians were killed (11 of them being soldiers) and 283 were wounded.
