The government calls to stop “killing each other” after the death of a motorcyclist in Nouméa

In Vallée-du-Tir in Nouméa, one of the neighborhoods where the rioters are the most numerous and best organized, a motorcyclist lost his life late Friday afternoon in a road accident, according to the public prosecutor, Yves Dupas.

The government of New Caledonia called during a press conference for an end to roadblocks and barricades. “We are killing each other and we cannot continue like this”declared Vaimu’a Muliava, member of the government in charge of the public service. “People are already dying not because of armed conflicts, but because they have no access to healthcare, no access to food”he added.

“There are people on dialysis, who should have been on dialysis, who have died”he said. “Free the roads, let the doctors and nurses go and save people. Let people move around”urged Mr. Muliava, on the sixth day of this crisis. “One more day is one day too many”he declared again.

Despite the numerous stores and businesses burned or looted, the roads blocked, New Caledonia is not the victim of ” shortage “also assured this member of the local government, ” but [elle] will become so if (…) this destructive path [continue] ».

The New Caledonian government called “to reason”. If the “social misery that is expressed” is understandable, said Vaimu’a Muliava to the youth, with the destruction of businesses and infrastructure, “you are punishing yourself”.
