Scope and content

Edited by J-P Deterix, for EDIPOP, published by Agence Kanak de Presse, Noumea, for the political party FLNKS (Front de Libération National Kanak et Socialiste) which is an umbrella organization grouping several independentist parties in New Caledonia, for instance the PALIKA (Parti de Libération Kanak), the Union Calédonienne, the Rassemblement Démocratique Océanien and the Union Progressiste Mélanésienne. The composition of FLNKS is not stable since the independence movement is extremely divided. The FLNKS was founded in August 1984 by the independentist leader Jean-Marie Tjibaou, who was murdered with Yeiwéné Yeiwéné by a Kanak extremist in Ouvéa on 4 May 1989.
