"The Uprisings" referred to a series of sporadic guerrilla campaigns that took place on the world of Ord Cestus. Carried out by the Desert Wind terrorist group against the Cestus Cybernetics corporation, they began around 121 BBY with a plague that decimated the X'Ting population. In 26 BBY they included a mining union strike that Cestus Cybernetics ended using killer droids. They were finally suppressed in 22 BBY however, the next year Desert Wind was remade with help from the Jedi Order and the Grand Army of the Republic.
