To H.E. Dame Meg TAYLOR Secretary General to the Pacific Islands Forum

Noumea, 5th September 2016

Subject: Question of the integration of New Caledonia as a full member of the Pacific Islands Forum

Excellency, During the 47th Summit of the Pacific Islands Forum (PIF) which will be held from September 7 to 11, 2016, in Pohnpei, Federates States of Micronesia, the candidacy of New Caledonia to the status of full member will be again examined.

In this way, considering the current political situation in Kanaky/New Caledonia, particularly in the prospect of electoral consultation on the achievement of full sovereignty of the country which is planned from 2018, I am writing to send you the position of my political group at the Congress of New Caledonia, shared also by the FLNKS1 .

This letter is in the continuity of the letter I sent you already last year. First, let me remind the role of the PIF in the international support of the Kanak people's struggle, in particularly within the framework of the reinscription, in 1986, of 1 Until now, during all the FLNKS Congresses, no motion was passed in the direction of an agreement for the change of status of New Caledonia in the PIF. New Caledonia on the United Nations list of Non Self Governing Territories.

This support was able to be developed, among others, under the aegis of our countries brothers of the Melanesia. Indeed, since 1986, the FLNKS benefits a special guest status as an observer member of the PIF. In 1998, after the signing of the Nouméa Accord which involved the country in a process of emancipation and decolonization, the Kanak independentists have accepted to integrate the government of New Caledonia at the time and place of the FLNKS as observer member within the PIF. This open-mindedness gesture was made during the PIF's summit in Palau in 1999. Besides, in 2006, New Caledonia became associate member of the PIF.

In September 2013, following a mission of the ministerial committee in New Caledonia, the executives of the organization recognized the legitimacy of the New Caledonian candidacy for the status of full member within PIF. Unfortunately, since 2006, we notice a sidelining of the independentist executives concerning all the decisions, as political as diplomatic, relative to the PIF, taken by the government of New Caledonia. Moreover I had informed Mr Henri PUNA of this problem, in 2013, during the mission of the ministerial committee. As signatory of the Noumea Accord, I have called out on several occasions the partners of this accord on the respect for its sincere and whole implementation.

The Melanesian Spearhead Group, the PIF and the United Nations Special Committee on Decolonization were also notified on the problems that our country crosses, in particular on the question of the establishment and the revision of the special electoral rolls for the provincial elections and for the consultation on the country's achievement of full sovereignty.

As you know, Oceania is today considered as the new center of the world growth, provided with a considerable potential which can raise the challenges of the 21th century (energy, raw materials, halieutic resources, etc.). So, it is clear that France, in the name of its greatness, of its place in the world, of its best interests, of its rank of the second naval strength in the world behind the USA, wishes to ensure to keep the sovereign powers in New Caledonia. Recently, a symposium organized by the French Senate in January 2013, in Paris, confirmed again the interest of France for its French territories of the Pacific.

The speakers of this symposium thus recommended to defend in this continent the best interests of France in connection with the public and private French companies. France also defends its own interests by using the French territories as a bridgehead or support base.

Concerning French overseas territories, the President François Hollande during his tour of the « last French colonies » had a constant in his speeches: « France is present all around the world, a country where the sun never goes down, France is a country of Oceania, Indian Ocean, America, the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean ».

These declarations express the politic of red line of the forbidden independence which France implements. Sometimes, under the cover of democracy, we can reveal maneuvers of a State trying to assure its domination while putting up a good show in front of the international community. The independentist executives that we are have what to be worried in view of this situation in French overseas territories and taking in consideration the declarations of certain high-level French politicians following the example of President François Hollande during his last journey in New Caledonia in November 2014 asserting in his speech in the Tjibaou Cultural center that the best interests of France are also situated in the Pacific.

Yet, New Caledonia is an oceanian country and France is an european country. The FLNKS gave time to build and reach its independence. Important results were obtained, but serious drifts, further to a deliberated will of confinement from the State, led New Caledonia towards a trapdoor into which France locks it more and more in the name of the best interests of the Nation. For us, it is so out of the question for the moment, and as long as New Caledonia is not independent, that she could obtain the status of full member within the PIF.

In the same line, it is inconceivable for us, as regard to the Melanesian Spearhead Group, that the FLNKS could give its place to the government of New Caledonia. Because it would definitely let France enter in these regional organizations, following the principle of the « Trojan horse », organizations which were of all fights for the Kanak people's independence. Our country which is going to commemorate, on September 24th, 2016, 163 years of taking possession by France, does not have vocation to play eternally the role of casting a favourable light on its administrative power which the only purpose is to claim, in the eyes of the nations of this region, its status of « oceanian » country, to benefit from this position.

The geographical and political reality reminds that France, situated in 20 000 km of the Pacific is an european, and not an oceanian State. To permanently tweak the shot on this basic reality amounts to maintain the colonialist and imperialist system, and paves the way for future situations of conflicts. More than ever New Caledonia, Melanesia and the Pacific, need stability, cohesion and peace. Gain independence peacefully and through negotiation was a difficult choice that we made. The support of regional institutions (PIF, MSG) and Independent States of the region is crucial for our people and our country. Indeed, the balance of power between the Administering power, France, and the colonized people, the Kanak people, is not in our favor.

If we are engaged for 30 years in a decolonization process with the signing of the political agreements (Matignon and Noumea) with our colonial power, we believe that it does not want the independence of our country. We are today in the last mandate of the Noumea Accord, and the political development of these last months does not allow us to envisage the granting, to New Caledonia, of a status of full member within the PIF.

In this way, allow non-independent and non-autonomous countries to become full member of the PIF is equivalent to bring our colonial power as a full member. Because the sovereign powers and full sovereignty is always that of the colonial power. Support for regional institutions and independent countries in the region is indispensable in our fight for independence. Considering elements developed above, I am writing to ask for your understanding, kindness, and support of your high authority to postpone the examination of the candidacy of New Caledonia to the status of full member of the Pacific Islands Forum.

Finally, I inform you that brother countries of our Pacific region, the Melanesian Spearhead Group, and the President of the United Nations Special Committee of Decolonization, were also seized on this matter.

Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.

And although the FLNKS had not reached the required numbers in the Congress of New Caledonia to secure the 3/5 majority to call for the referendum expected between 2014 and 2018, it has nevertheless helped change the political landscape and gained support in favour of the final transfer of powers from France.

Decision

23. Leaders expressed appreciation to the Prime Minister for the update on their preparations for the 2014 national election.

III. ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE TO MSG COUNTRIES  

24. The Leaders deeply acknowledged the offer of economic, finance and technical assistance by the Prime Minister of PNG to all MSG members including opportunities for labour mobility, investment and education.

GFLM-copie-1Le Groupe du Fer de Lance Mélanésien (GFLM) qui regroupe les pays mélanésiens de la région océanienne, Papouasie Nouvelle Guinée, Salomon, Fidji, Vanuatu et le mouvement de libération du peuple Kanak de Nouvelle Calédonie, le FLNKS, a tenu son 19ième sommet à Nouméa du 19 au 21 juin 2013. Ce fut la deuxième fois que la Nouvelle Calédonie accueillait un sommet du GFLM, après le 14ième du genre, en juillet 2001. La présidence du sommet était assurée par le FLNKS en la personne de Victor TUTUGORO, porte parole du bureau politique. Assistaient à ce 19ième sommet : le Premier ministre des Îles Fidji, le Commodore Josaia Voreqe BAINIMARAMA, le Premier ministre des Îles Salomon, Mr Gordon Darcy LILO, le Premier ministre du Vanuatu, Mr Moana CARACASSES Kalosil et le Vice Premier ministre de la Papouasie Nouvelle Guinée, Mr Leo DION. Pour la période 2013-2015, le FLNKS représentant le pays hôte, conduira les destinées de l’organisation régionale.

            Dans le même temps, les célébrations clôturant le jubilé d’argent du GFLM (1988-2013) se déroulaient le 20 juin 2013 au centre culturel TJIBAOU, avec pour invité d’honneur le Grand Chef Sir Michael SOMARE, père de l’indépendance de la Papouasie Nouvelle Guinée, actuellement membre du parlement national et président de la province du SEPICK.

            Parmi les décisions importantes prises lors de ce 19ième sommet on peut notamment noter : les progrès considérables réalisés dans la mise en œuvre de l’accord de libre échange commercial du groupe. Les marchandises circulent désormais en franchise totale de droits  depuis janvier 2013 entre Fidji, Papouasie Nouvelle Guinée et Vanuatu. Salomon a demandé un délai supplémentaire jusqu’en 2017. Le sommet a par ailleurs chargé le secrétariat d’examiner les possibilités pour la Nouvelle Calédonie d’intégrer l’accord commercial.

            Concernant l’accord du GFLM relatif à la mobilité des compétences (ouvriers qualifiés et cadres) entre les pays membres, adopté en mars 2012 et entré en vigueur le 30 septembre 2013, il a été noté que  les Îles Salomon, Fidji et Papouasie Nouvelle Guinée sont prêts à le mettre en œuvre.

            Le sommet a par ailleurs chargé le secrétariat d’évaluer la possibilité de créer une bourse du GFLM destinée à faciliter les mouvements de capitaux entre pays membres, ainsi que la viabilité d’une telle initiative.

            En matière de changement climatique, le sommet a décidé de mettre en œuvre les résolutions de Rio + 20 par la mise en œuvre d’un projet de stratégie sur les objectifs de développement durable. Dans le cadre de la déclaration du GFLM sur l’environnement, cinq objectifs pour une croissance verte ont été adoptés ainsi qu’en engagement mélanésien pour la Terre et la mise en place d’un Fond vert mélanésien pour le climat.

            En matière d’éducation, une bourse d’études du Jubilé d’argent du GFLM a été créée et porte le nom du regretté père Walter LINI, un des pères fondateurs du GFLM et Premier ministre de la république du Vanuatu à l’indépendance en 1980.

            S’agissant des questions politiques, le sommet a abordé la demande d’adhésion de la Coalition nationale de libération de West Papua (WPNCL). Il a été convenu de mettre en place un processus de dialogue et de consultation avec l’Indonésie qui a proposé d’inviter une mission de ministres des affaires étrangères conduite par Fidji avant la fin de cette année. La suite à donner à la demande de WPNCL sera fonction des conclusions de cette mission. Dans l’attente, le GFLM fera part au gouvernement du président Susilo Bambang YUDHYONO, à titre bilatéral et collectif, de sa préoccupation face aux violations des droits de l’homme et autre atrocité commise à l’encontre de la population de West Papua.

            S’agissant du peuple Kanak de Nouvelle Calédonie, le GFLM a, dans le cadre de la déclaration de Nouméa sur le FLNKS, signée le vendredi 21 juin, réitéré son soutien sans faille à son droit à l’autodétermination et l’indépendance.

            Par ailleurs, les dirigeants ont acté le principe de l’élaboration d’un drapeau du GFLM qui sera hissé à la gauche des drapeaux nationaux dans les capitales des pays membres et dans leurs missions à l’étranger.

            Enfin le sommet a pris note du rapport du Groupe des personnalités éminentes (EPG) et a estimé qu’il constituait un élément déterminant à prendre en considération dans l’examen des nouvelles orientations à donner pour les 25 ans à venir au GFLM en tant qu’organisation subrégionale. Les dirigeants ont salué avec une profonde gratitude, les efforts et l’engagement des membres du groupe qui pendant six semaines de tournées dans les cinq pays et après avoir consulté en 130 réunions, prés de 200 responsables de tous les secteurs de la société, ont pu dresser la vision pour les 25 ans à venir. Ce groupe était composé de l’ambassadeur Kaliopate TAVOLA de Fidji, président du groupe,  Manasseh SOGAVARE des Îles Salomon, Joe NATUMAN de Vanuatu, Roch WAMYTAN du FLNKS de Nouvelle Calédonie et Léonard LOUMA de Papouasie- Nouvelle-Guinée. A l’issue du 19ième sommet, l’ambassadeur Kaliopate TAVOLA a été nommé Haut représentant du GFLM pour un mandat de deux ans.

            Le sommet a aussi pris connaissance des informations actualisées sur le retrait de la mission d’assistance régionale aux Îles Salomon (RAMSI) à compter du 24 juillet 2013.Enfin concernant le processus électoral en cours aux Îles Fidji, et suite à une invitation du gouvernement fidjien, le GFLM enverra une mission d’observateurs chargée de suivre le déroulement des élections en septembre 2014.

            Enfin, le principe d’un parlement du GFLM a été exposé et discuté. En effet la création de juridictions commerciales et économiques communes exigera à terme la mise en place d’un cadre de gouvernance commun qui sera porteur de solidarité et d’unité au sein de la région mélanésienne. L’instauration d’un cadre législatif global offrirait des perspectives très positives à tout niveau et permettrait de renforcer l’intégration et la coopération. Aussi le secrétariat a été prié de lancer une étude de cadrage sur les incidences et la faisabilité d’une telle initiative.

            Pour conclure, le 19ième sommet a été d’une richesse exceptionnelle en matière de décision prise. Conscient de ses atouts : 98% des terres émergées avec la quasi-totalité des ressources naturelles, 28% de la zone économique exclusive, 88% de la population, le monde mélanésien se dresse, prêt à assumer son destin et ses responsabilités dans cette région Asie-Pacifique, lieu de la croissance mondiale à l’aube de ce 21ième siècle. . L’idée d’une grande Mélanésie regroupant les 10 millions de mélanésiens « océaniens » et les 12 millions « sub-océaniques » (Moluques, Timor, les Flores, Sulawesi…) fait son chemin.

800px-Flag of West Papua svgJ’ai été sollicité par Forkorus YABOISEMBUT sur la question de la libération de West Papua et de leur éventuelle adhésion au Groupe de Fer de Lance Mélanésien.

La question de l’adhésion de West Papoua au GFLM devrait être abordée lors du prochain sommet du groupe à Nouméa (mi-juin 2013). Nous verrons  s`il est possible que le mouvement de libération de West Papua peut bénéficier d'un statut au GFLM (invité spécial, observateur, membre à part entière, etc.).

Les organisations sont très actives en ce moment à l'approche du sommet. Notre groupe (personnes éminentes de Mélanésie) les ont souvent rencontrées au cours des 5 semaines de consultation qui viennent de se terminer en Papouasie Nouvelle-Guinée (PNG).

Pour ma part, je ne peux que condamner les atteintes aux droits de l'homme en West Papua et soutenir ce peuple  dans son combat pour retrouver son indépendance vis à vis de l'Indonésie qui a utilisé la manière forte pour imposer sa souveraineté sur ce pays. Cette semaine lors d'une rencontre avec des hauts responsables politiques et militaires des organisations de West Papua, j'ai eu l'occasion de leur donner ma position.

L'Indonésie utilise souvent l'argument consistant à dire que la majorité du peuple mélanésien est de nationalité indonésienne. Elle revendique donc sa part de "melanesiennité'. Je pense que cet argument a pesé dans la décision du GFLM pour accorder à ce pays un statut d'observateur au sein de notre organisation régionale. Le GFLM regroupe aujourd’hui : la PNG, 7,5 millions de personnes, Les Salomon, 550.000 environ, Fidji 883.000, Vanuatu 250.000 et la Kanaky 250.000, soit environ 9,2 millions et en ajoutant Timor leste cela fait près de 10 millions de personnes. Du cote Indonésien, on retrouve des régions entières frontalières  à la PNG qui sont peuples de mélanésiens de souche ou métissées malais: Timor Ouest, l'archipel des Flores, une partie de Sulawesi, Aceh et Ambon, les Moluques et West Papua occupée soit près de 13 millions de personnes. Si on ajoute les 3 millions de mélanésiens philippins, du cote asiatique, nos cousins dépassent les 15 millions de personnes. Le sujet est donc assez sensible et l'Indonésie joue sur cet argument alors que le problème est l'occupation illégale d'un pays et d'un peuple refusant cette mainmise forcée. Nos frères du côté asiatique ne revendiquent pas l'indépendance de leur région car ils ont eu une histoire qui les a conduit à se sentir plus proches des indonésiens et philippins. Ce qui n'est pas le cas de nos frères de West Papua qui doivent être aidés et soutenus dans leur revendication.

Distinguished guests

Excellencies

Ladies and gentlemen

             Once again, I woud like thank you very much for inviting me as Chief Guest for the Papua New Guinea Melanesia Week. It is truly an honour and privilege.

             I wish to thank the organizing committee, the government and people of PNG for the warm and friendly hospitality accorded to us, members of EPG since our arrival to Port Moresby. We are truly grateful.

             I believe, that it is only fitting that MSG EPG have finished its five weeks consultations in PNG parallel to the PNG melanesia week, as this is where our organization, the MSG was formed during the informal meeting at Goroka, Eastern Highlands Province in 1986.

             On behalf of the Kanak people in New Caledonia and on behalf of the FLNKS (Front de libération kanak socialiste), our liberation movement which represents the Melanesian people still colonized under French rule, I wish to thank the MSG and especially PNG for its continued support to our struggle. We are forever grateful to you all.

             Actually the MSG voice in the United Nations and international fora has enabled the voice of our Kanaky people to be heard. This is a pure example of our MSG solidarity, with the great potential and achievements, we can conquer.

             The MSG leaders summit in two weeks’time is very important for the people of Kanaky. We will take the huge responsability as the incoming Chair of our organization.

             It is timely and fitting because this wille give us, the FLNKS, the opportunity to demonstrate our leadership capability in this sub-regional organization, noting also that the 2014 general elections in New Caledonia is a vital period that will determine the future of the Kanaky. By the same token, the FLNKS is encouraged by the process the MSG is taking in recognizing the issues over West Papua.

             I wish to stress to you all, that the FLNKS will take on this responsability with humility, respect and confidence to lead our sub-regional organization in a prosperous, peacefull and happy future.

             I wish to add, as well, that the main agendas that we have pursued on : security, trade, climate change, economic social and cultural intitiatives will be accorded the dedication and hard word under the FLNKS leadership. It is obvious that the condition of success is your support.

             In addition, in all our collaboration, we must not forget OUR PEOPLE. They want to participate in the MSG process. And we must ensure that their voices are heard. This is to ensure the MSG remains relevant to its people.

             The future prospects for MSG looks promising. And what would be needed, is robust leadership. Let us all continue to work together to achieve the aspirations and dreams of our people and bettering their livelihoods.

God bless us all

God bless Melanesia

 

Thank you very much

Merci beaucoup

Traduction des grandes idées sur l’engagement de la présidence du GFLM par le FLNKS.

« le sommet du GFLM dans deux semaines est très important pour le peuple kanak. Nous allons prendre l’immense responsabilité  d’assumer la présidence de notre organisation. Cela tombe à point nommé et de façon pertinente car ce sera l’occasion de démontrer notre aptitude au leadership dans cette organisation subrégionale. Notons aussi que les élections générales de 2014 en NC constitueront  une période cruciale qui sera déterminante pour le future de la Kanaky… » .. Le FLNKS assumera sa responsabilité, on en prend l’engagement devant vous, avec humilité, respect et confiance pour conduire notre organisation subrégionale vers un avenir prospère, paisible et heureux »…  « Par ailleurs concernant les grandes problématiques qui nous occupent que sont : la sécurité, le commerce, les changements climatiques, les initiatives économiques, sociales et culturelles, elles feront l’objet d’une attention constante et d’une implication de travail permanente sous la présidence du FLNKS. Mais pour cela le FLNKS a besoin de votre aide pour que le succès soit au rendez vous ».. Enfin n’oublions pas notre peuple qui souhaite participer au processus, leur voix doit être entendue, cela permettra d’assurer que le GFLM demeure quelque chose de particulièrement utile (et nécessaire) pour notre peuple »
