For the mayor of Nouméa, “we are far from a return to appeasement”

The situation in New Caledonia is “far from a return to appeasement“, said Sonia Lagarde, the mayor of Nouméa, on Saturday, while a man was killed on a dam in the north of the island. “The last two nights, we can say that they were calmer, on the other hand, the days are similar, with its share of fires“, declared the (Renaissance) councilor of the Caledonian “capital”, interviewed by BFMTV.

As I speak to you, there are barricades which have been set up in an eastern district of the city of Nouméa, which are held (…) by the separatists“, she continued Saturday mid-morning (Paris time), assuring that the situation was not improving, “quite the contrary, despite all the calls for appeasement“.”When I see all this damage, and whether it is private property or public property that goes up in smoke, it is desolation“, was moved by Sonia Lagarde, speaking of a “infinite sadness“.

Can we say that we are in a city under siege? Yes, I think we can say that“, she declared, before mentioning the arrival of reinforcements of security forces, to whom “you have to give a little time” to do their job.
