Support the right to independence of Kanaky. Against colonialism and racism. ---- For over 160 years, the Kanak people have been colonized by France, which has perpetrated countless massacres against it. He has since struggled to become a free people and master of his destiny. The forms of the resistance varied but this one never stopped: insurrections of 1878 to that of 1917, of the refusal of the conscription during the first world war to the occupation of the cave of Ouvéa in 1988, peaceful demonstrations in the occupations of town halls or other public buildings. For the Kanak people, colonization is the spoliation of land, the setting aside of a minority organized on its own land, and a situation where in all areas - wages, employment, standard of living, housing, health, education ... - Kanak oppression and exploitation, racism and discrimination.

After more than a century and a half of struggle, the Kanak people have imposed through their struggle the recognition of their right to self-determination. A referendum will be held on November 4 that will decide the short-term fate of the Kanak people.

Read Kanaky: " Self-determination referendum, a chance or a trap ? " In Alternative Libertaire in June 2018.
The scale of the economic and geostrategic stakes for France makes fear all the manipulations. The long conflict over the elaboration of the electoral lists of the referendum testifies to this, more than 19,000 Kanak are not registered, several thousands of fraudulent inscriptions, in addition to a double modification of the law allowing the opening of the electoral body to new categories of non-citizens.

Colonial France will do everything to preserve its economic interests (40% of world nickel reserves) and its rank of military power which strengthens its presence in the South Pacific.

Anticolonialists, progressives, anti-racists in France and more broadly all those who refuse to abandon the fight for the right of the peoples are concerned. Refusing to get used to the unacceptable because it lasts is a necessity. Let us not forget that a people who oppresses another can not be a free people.

On the eve of the referendum, it is urgent to hear Kanak independence organizations.

For that, come to
