THE French Embassy has given reasons for the absence of French Navy participation in this year’s Independence Day parade, saying such participation was not automatic.

The Embassy here issued a statement yesterday in response to stories carried in the media, including THE VOICE and THE STAR last weekend to the effect that the French were boycotting this year’s celebrations because of ongoing concerns about local issues.

The Embassy statement read:

“The French Embassy to the OECS member states and Barbados wishes to issue the following statement in response to the Medias allegations regarding a so-called “French snub” of St Lucia’s 37th independence anniversary celebrations:

“ France was represented throughout all the Independence ceremonies by the Ambassador H.E. Mr. Eric de la Moussaye and his wife, Defense attaché Lt Colonel Damien Vauterin of the French Armed Forces in the Caribbean, as well as several diplomats of this Embassy. France cherishes its bonds of friendship with St Lucia and the boycott of such an important and special moment for the government and people of St Lucia would have been inconceivable.

“ French President François Hollande sent a message of congratulations to Governor General Dame PearletteLouisy, highlighting the friendship between the people of St Lucia and France, and thanking St Lucia for its commitment to resolving the issue of climate change.

“ Ambassador de la Moussaye wished to give special emphasis to the naming of Owen King EU hospital by mentioning it during his Friday 19th interview on HTS, by attending the official ceremony on Sunday 21st and also by requesting that a mention of the importance of this project, supported by the EU, and the contribution of France towards its opening, be included in the speech pronounced on Monday 22nd by the Dean of the diplomatic corps, H.E. Ambassador LeiffEscalona.

“ The Ambassador also requested that another mention be made in the Dean’s speech of the action of France towards helping Minister Fletcher make the voice of the Caribbean be heard at the Paris COP 21. The contribution of Minister Fletcher on behalf of all island nations was decisive in securing a historical agreement on climate change.

“ The presence of French soldiers from Martinique at the Independence celebrations is not automatic. The agenda and the current implementation of the military cooperation programmes between St Lucia and France did not allow, this year, for the presence of a French Navy vessel and the participation of a French regiment in the Independence parade. It would be totally wrong to conclude that the EU or any other international organisation or country had put any pressure in this sense on the French government. Any bilateral cooperation is solely in the realm of a State’s sovereignty, and in this case of the French government.”

    I will reiterate here, that the French, English. and the other European Countries including the USA are enemies of the people of African Ancestry. These wicked and evil Caucasian Christians are thieves and pirates who murder unarmed African Americans in the USA and France for no reason other than they are African. France continues to plunder Africa, Stealing the Oil, and Diamonds from the peoples of Africa, while raping their little boys and girls. Do not believe anything these wicked pirates tell you. They are the worse than Satan!! Just look at Haiti, and you will see what France really thinks of YOU.

    Take a look at Haiti’s children after France stole billions and billions of U.S. dollars from them and left them eating mud to stay alive.

    Haitians eating dirt cookies. Extreme poverty in Haiti.

    You are brainwashed into thinking that Nelson Mandela is a Saint; WHY IS THAT ? He Mandela left 90% of the South African lands and wealth with the Caucasian Christian Plunders – Of Course, the people who do your thinking will tell you he is the best example to follow.

    Then you are lied to about the individuals who truly seek freedom and justice for the Africans. Africans like Mugabe and Khadaffi are murdered by these worthless cowards and pirates who oppress the African people all over the world and you are being told that these criminals care about Saint Lucia ? Kick these devils off the Island and send them to use their mouths to clean the menstrual discharges of their filthy females in France where they belong.

    However, if you are sincere in being knowledgeable, I encourage you to take a minute to dispel your ignorance by seeing what the Most Honorable Robert Mugabe taught me in this video

    We cannot believe anything these Caucasian Christians tell us, because these French and other Caucasians will not change their Evil Ways of Oppressing the African through a process of Mis-Education, the Devil’s Bible and the Slave Master’s Religion of white Supremacy.

    The Chastanets with their Bolom Rick John Wayne, get o TV and display the kind of hypocrisy that can only be described in Arabic and Kweyol “MU-NAA-FI-QEEN” and “PAPA VISSERES”, crying how Taiwan is holding back their welfare money from St. Lucia, and France is no more our friend. This guy Michael Chastanet JUST WON’T DIE ! This Vampire has been around since the Dinosaurs walked the Earth, working as a CIA agent to keep Black Lucians enslaved.

    Since WHEN was France or England or America FRIEEENDS of Black people ?? I keep telling you that Rick John Wayne, and that vampire “Jan gaje” Michael Chastanet are criminals who hate Black People and would like nothing more than to see France control the Government of our country until we eat mud like the people of Haiti. Now these “Sooseres” John Wayne and Michael Chastanet have began to rejoice that Taiwan is attempting to return the Government to UWP by withholding their little cheques.

    I hope Kenny Anthony learns from these treacheries, and expel these Bootleg Chinese calling themselves Taiwanese, soon to be ended when China retakes their Province from these Bootleg Chinese faking as Taiwanese.

    Kenny’s top priority should have been to expel these Taiwanese pimps and develop good relationships with China – St. Lucia would have been much better off with China than these Rebel Taiwanese, who gives us a little welfare cheque to secure our vote for their survival in the Cesspool call the United Nations.
