Islanders threaten to go on hunger strike

Published

on

Some 30 residents of Agalega, stranded in Mauritius for several months, have been protesting for the second consecutive week in front of Parliament, so that they are allowed to go back home.

The protest coincides with growing concerns that residents could be exiled as part of India’s controversial move to set up a military base on the island. This has been refuted by Mauritius.

l’Express cited authorities as justifying that the Mauritius Trochetia was not operational and under repair.

The Agalegans have threatened to go on hunger strike on Friday if “Pravind Jugnauth does not act as a proper Prime Minister.”
