  1. The French were the worst colonizers.. The world can look down on America for slavery but Britain and Europe know what they have done. Old sins cast long shadows.

  2. This is why I have permanently removed France from my list of places to visit. This is horrible. 😢May Allah ta'ala give these people victory over this oppressive regime. Ameen.

  3. First Mayotte the living standard is well above the Comoros Islanders island chain. Mayotte was smart and aligned themselves with France. Mayotte has a big a lagoon with double reef system which is protected from storms. Maytotte people hate the crime that the people from the outside countries bring to Mayotte. They are from Comoros, Madagascar, African continent to a small extent. The outsiders have made life an uneasy balance with overcrowding of the city and disrespect of the local culture. Why should people from this fragile island endure people who come for profit???? This brings Evil…..and unrest…

  4. The French should leave and turn this over to the Africans. The people will stop riding the boats to a "better life" an illusion as long as the French are there.

  6. Serious question, what is the incentive for France to keep Mayotte? I understand the residents of Mayotte seem to like the French presence, but why does France even bother? Seems like a lot of money spent on their part with these patrols…. is there something in it for them? Oil or something? Not like there's much tourism. They wouldn't just keep going through all this trouble for nothing.

  7. So,if the French have not occupied those island then those people are still in the same boat,poor.so what independence they want?they have it and still they are poor.still depending on the aid from the west,that is been for ages.I also come from an island and hunger we have ,but there is so much in nature what is edible.what is the problem with planting,farming.God help those who help them self.Everybody wants an better life,but you have to earn it,think,not to bring up kids and live poor from generation on generation.

  8. So the french and the brits occupied most of africa and the middle east during the past century and now they ask why people from these countries want to immigrate to France and the UK.

  9. was really wondering why people keep attacking french all the time. could this be the reason? coz this is the same story in haiti where the french spread cholera and later admitted to it… this world we live in

  10. So these colonia Satan are still Africa dividing and conquering the native land while the u.n and the world stood by watching this horror. So yea like all frenchies very horrible people.

  11. ff sake France take the other islands as well solves the problem… goes 4 95% of ex colonies they arent well run they need 2 learn.. some more.before getting independence
