Kenshi Wiki

Rebel Farmers are rebelling peasants and escaped slaves from the United Cities who are angry about the brutality of the upper classes, or simply resorting to banditry to feed themselves. They can often be found hanging around empire lands, attacking slavers and other travelers on the roads and then retreating back to their camps.

Although their cause is just (given that they just want to be treated fairly and punish the ruthless nobility), many citizens and peasants of the empire have a hard time sympathizing with the Rebels, given that their banditry isn't exclusive to the upper class. Even the civilian AI reflects this lore, as depending on the civilian NPC, they either flee during the conflict or assist Empire Samurai in fighting the rebels (although the only civilian units that really fight the bandits are caravan or shop guards).
