Les Etats-Unis émettent une alerte sur les Antilles

Le département d’Etat a émis un avis déconseillant aux voyageurs et/ou résidents américains de se rendre en Guadeloupe ou Martinique. « Il est même possible que ces mouvements se répandent aux autres départements d’outre-mer » note le gouvernement US. Il conseille aussi à ses ressortissants d’éviter les foules… Et pour plus d’infos ils les renvoient vers l’ambassade US à la Barbade ! http://bridgetown.usembassy.gov.
This Travel Alert is to alert U.S. citizens residing in or traveling to Guadeloupe and Martinique, French West Indies (FWI), that ongoing labor strikes in the region may affect social, economic and tourist services. It is possible that these strikes will spread to other French overseas departments. This Travel Alert expires on May 13, 2009
American citizens in both Guadeloupe and Martinique are encouraged to monitor media reports, avoid large crowds, and follow all official instructions. We remind U.S. citizens that even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence. U.S. citizens should stay current with media coverage of local events and be aware of their surroundings at all times.
For additional information on travel to the FWI, see the Departments Country Specific Information for French West Indies available at http://travel.state.gov. Americans in FWI should also monitor the website of the U.S. Embassy: http://bridgetown.usembassy.gov. U.S. citizens should remain in contact with friends and family in the United States with updates about their whereabouts. The U.S. Embassy will continue to monitor the situation, and will issue updated messages as needed.
