(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Tribute to the victims of the Ouvéa massacre of May 5, 1988 (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Kanaky: May 1988 - May 2018: 30 years to achieve independence ---- With the approach of the referendum on " the accession to full sovereignty and independence of Kanaky-New Caledonia " to be held on November 4, 2018 in the territory, we would like to recall, here in France, the origin of this self-determination vote. ---- This possibility for the Kanak people to " close the long parenthesis of French colonization " is indeed the last stage of a long Kanak struggle. ---- On May 4, 2018, we will first recall the mobilization of 1988, the one that wrested from the State a negotiation process, leading to the Matignon and Oudinot Agreements (June and August 1988), then to the Agreement Nouméa in 1998 - the latter initiating the process of progressive decolonization, which should be completed this year.

We will honor the memory of those who fell in this collective struggle for independence:

the 19 militants killed on May 5, 1988, during the assault given by GIGN and commandos of the army against the cave of Gossanah, killed or executed after the battle as it was the case for several of them including Alphonse Dianou . then their leaders, also fallen to Ouvea, a year later, on the painful anniversary of this massacre: Jean-Marie Tjibaou, Yeweine Yeweine, Djubelli Wea. We will associate the names of the combatants killed in the previous confrontations with the police or the army: Eloi Machoro, Marcel Nonnaro, as well as those killed under unsolved circumstances, Pierre Declercq, or the ten Tiendanite assassinated in an anti-independence ambush .

The undersigned signatory organizations therefore call for participation in this mobilization to highlight the stakes of this self-determination vote and to denounce the colonial processes still at work.

They support the legitimate demands of the Kanak people, foremost among them the accession to full sovereignty, and ask:

that the French State respects impartiality and its word in accompanying the process of decolonization ; that all Kanak (common law and common law) be inscribed on the general list and then referendum ; that the special electoral body, which marks the definitive end of settlement colonization, be constituted with sincerity and legitimacy ; that the State responds to the demands of the Truth and Justice Committee, created by the families of the victims; that it opens its archives and thus allows to shed light on death Alphonse Dianou and other fighters of the cave of Gossanah, on that of Eloi Machoro and Marcel Nonnaro, Pierre Declerq as he did for other anticolonialist militants killed or missing in Algeria or Senegal. Rally on May 4, 2018 at 6 pm in front of the City of Immigration History, formerly the Colonial Museum, located in the Palace of the Golden Gate, built for the 1931 Colonial Exhibition where 111 Kanak were exhibited as that " authentic cannibals ", 293 avenue Daumesnil 75012 Paris, metro Porte-Dorée.
