"I name the Emperor himself for ordering the brutal attacks on the people of Ghorman. Their peaceful world is one of countless systems helpless under his oppressive rule. This massacre is proof that our self-appointed Emperor is little more than a lying executioner."
―Mon Mothma[src]

The Ghorman Massacre was an incident that took place in 2 BBY,[2] in which the Galactic Empire slaughtered peaceful protesters on the planet Ghorman. Magva Yarro, who had taken part in the protests,[4] survived the massacre, and ended up joining Saw Gerrera's Partisans. Reports of the massacre reached Senator Tynnra Pamlo, who worked closely with Rebel Alliance Intelligence Service.[3]

Following the massacre, Senator Mon Mothma of Chandrila publicly blamed Emperor Sheev Palpatine for the attacks on Ghorman's inhabitants, prompting the Empire to attempt to capture her.[1]
