Looks like the rioters got their way. Good luck rebuilding and creating order out of the death, bad blood and chaos the revolutionaries wanted and have now received. History may tell you things won’t be easy!

And after they get independence, who's going to pay for the functioning education system, medical care system, social benefits etc?

You can't just kick out France and expect everything to keep ticking along as normal.

Chances are they'll all be far worse off independent than they are now. Are they really treated so poorly under the current French system?

How about China sending in an evacuation unit and trying to calm the unrest? Aren't they trying to make inroads into the South Pacific?

Your talking about French territory here. A nuclear power, not just a tiny independant state with no military. Although without being part of a European nation, China would no dout see rioting as an opportunity for a foothold there.

Kanaks are victims of a ruthless colonialist invasion which seeks to exploit their natural resources. Time for discussion was yesterday, action today.

They need to resist the occupiers and use violence if necessary. Send the occupiers home in body bags so their mothers can weep and force Macron to change policy.

They have already bagged a few of them.

Little tough to invade what is internationally recognized as yours.

Check out the role of Tiktok as an important tool of subterfuge throughout Micronesia and the Pacific Islands in general.

Interesting.

I really do not get what these Kanak geniuses want. They have French nationality with all the benefits that brings with it now. What kind of economy would support them if their islands became independent? I am sure China would be happy to jump in with some "generous" loans etc but that comes at a cost.
