New Caledonia: Political Tension Grows Over Rights to Nickel Mines

Nickel Mines of Nakéty by Fab Virge on Flickr CC-License-2.0

Claudine WERY writes [fr] that political tension grows between independentist and non-indenpendentist political parties in New Caledonia over the exploitation of Nickel mines. Non-independentists accuse the other party to strike deals with China and South Korea that they are not authorized to pursue. A referendum on gaining independence from France is scheduled between year 2014 and 2018.

Our work building bridges across cultures, languages and perspectives is more urgent than ever before.
