1. Origins
    The Dezertisma Brigadoj (English: Desertist Brigades, DB) are the armed wing and paramilitary of the Desertists, and the largest armed force within Leskya; the DB is traditionally responsible for the protection of Naturkomo and Makeo, and has headquarters in every major population centre.

    The Desertist Brigades have roots in the early Desertist movement and its communist terrorist origins. The armed organisation became uniformed, regimented, and trained following the Desertist turn towards mass politics. Enlistment in the brigades is voluntary, although requires a recommendation from a trusted member of a Desertist Brigade or a Desertist commune. Training of members is performed without the disengagement of the individual from other duties and social participation.

Origins

    The origins of the Desertist Brigades are closely linked to the activities of the early Desertists, namely its expropriative and terroristic actions. Though the whole of the group was involved in its violent activities, the group's acquisition of finances via raids on banks or the robbing of wealthy capitalists naturally necessitated a degree of militarism and intelligence work; the estimating of the wealth of a bank or a factory’s cash office, determining the schedule of money deposits, the internal layouts of buildings, the number of guards, etc. required the carrying out of serious reconnaissance measures; the recruitment of informers for such activities also proved to be an important part of any plan.

    This lead to the formation of the Special Detachment (Esperanto: Speciala Taĉmento), often considered to be the precursor of the Desertist Brigades. The Special Detachment was specifically tasked with the reconnaissance, intelligence gathering, and directed establishment of networks of informants and suppliers for the benefit of the whole of the Desertists.

    The revolutions of 2281 - 2302 proved especially strenuous for the loose and informal organisation of the Desertists. In 2084, following the Project's invasion of the Caucasus, the Special Detachment was expanded into an international organisation, enlarged to include uniformed combat units, and renamed the Desertist Army (Esperanto: Dezertisma Armeo).

    The Desertist Army operated functionally as a conventional military force, with logistical support organising the supply lines to army frontlines against the Project. This proved to be impossible to maintain by the Harasa forces, primarily due to the constant movement of frontlines and necessary flexibility in base formation and location. As a result, "civilian sections" of the Army were formed with the support of residents of urban and rural regions involved in the Harasa. These sections were concerned mainly with provisioning the army.

    Such forms of military procurement as expropriation, contributions (levies), or so-called "living off the land" became widely used by the Army, to the point of eclipsing the regular army corps logisticians, with most Army regiments centring themselves around individual civilian sections and regrouping as needed. Following the conclusion of the 4th Congress of Mecca, the Desertist Army was officially abolished, and a new organisation was established, the Desertist Brigades.

    The backbone of the Desertist Brigades were formed from two distinct groups; those among the elite and senior Desertists who strengthened the "amateur" Desertists; and close associates of Akhi Yathmir. The latter often acted as the Akhi's personal bodyguard.

    The structure of the Brigades as allowed to form organically, with the idea of avoiding the mistakes of the Army structure. By 2286, the following structure was firmly in place: the basic nucleus was found at the staff of each Brigade, and when large cities were occupied by the Desertists, separate subdivisions of the Brigade were organised in them which were characteristically involved in civilian activities; the provisioning of the Brigade through expropriations and the collection of contributions, as well as the pursuit of agents and former collaborators of the Project. There was no central organ of the Brigades, with every Brigade working autonomously within a networked system of the entirety of the Desertist Brigades; this form of decentralised networking is often called the origins of the rizomatismo model.
