    At some point in the next 12 months there is supposed to be a referendum in Kanaky/New Caledonia on self-determination.

    Whether the referendum will go ahead or not actually remains a bit of an open question.

    In either case, the French seem determined to hold on to their island colonies/possessions in the Pacific and Caribbean.

    Because of the smallness of indigenous populations in Kanaky/New Caledonia and ‘French Polynesia’, successive French governments have been able to send out enough settlers to ensure an ongoing majority in favour of continuing French rule.

    It’s important that progressive-minded people in NZ support the populations seeking independence and emancipation.

      Yeah, reminds me a bit about NZ Inc’s immigration policy, keeping Maori in a minority, same as Pacific Islanders, so they not not get too bold with their claims here.

      Divide and rule very much is the modus operandi in New Zealand, same as in other places.

    John Edwards: taking a stand for privacy in the US Supreme Court

    A landmark US Supreme Court case against a US citizen accused of drug trafficking has caught the eye of New Zealand’ privacy commissioner, and prompted him to take a stand against the United States. The citizen has private data stored in an Irish data centre owned by Microsoft, and rather than ask Ireland to voluntarily hand over the information , the US wants to seize it under US search warrant laws.
    US government lawyers made a request in the US Court of Appeal, were knocked back, and they’ve now appealed that decision to the Supreme Court.
    The New Zealand privacy commissioner, John Edwards is worried about the global implications of such a case, and he’s made a voluntary submission on to the US Supreme Court.
