Bravo, Macron, you took into account the mistakes of your European neighbor. You need to talk to people before bombing them! Even if they are rebels

Nickel is the key word to all questions:)))

Three times the people of New Caledonia were asked if they wanted independence and three times they said no.

Three times the people of New Caledonia were asked if they wanted independence and three times they said no.

With the level of poverty in which the native population of Calednia lives, this is a natural result. We believe. ~

And these people tell us about the unreliability of election results in other countries

Kanaks deserve independence and freedom from the colonialists.

In a certain sense yes, they deserve it now, because they are full of hate, not thankful for given highest possible living standard and as they obviously are preferring to live in poverty, chaos and deadly violence. Also for French and EU tax payers it would be much cheaper to have this far away burden immediately canceled. In that sense, it would indeed be a win-win situation for both sides if the 'colonialists' , who used to ship plenty of their achievements and massive welfare, civilisational and infrastructural support , leave from there without too much tears about that expensive holiday resort island.

during a meeting with New Caledonia's elected officials and local representatives at French High Commissioner Louis Le Franc's residence in Noumea

Looking at the photo, I just now noticed: how many faces of local residents can be identified in the photo? Barely two or three...Who of them are those elected officials? Or maybe there no difference between european and kanaks? The question сomes: did Macron meet with the locals?
