Why MIQUELON? Miquelon is the name of a French island in North America, 800 miles North-East of Boston. It is a symbol of French Resistance: despite 3 British deportations and attempted ethnic cleansing between 1755 and 1793, the French kept coming back to resettle.
During WORLD WAR II, this island along with its counterpart Saint-Pierre were liberated by the FREE FRENCH* and joined in the WAR EFFORT. The liberation happened despite the ferocious OPPOSITION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA**.
This island is a symbol of the spirit of FRENCH RESISTANCE and FRENCH DETERMINATION.
The people of Miquelon, and Saint-Pierre fear nothing and no one, not even the battleship Arkansas nor the North Atlantic Weather.

** Roosevelt was opposed to the liberation of Vichy controlled SPM. The American government preferred nogiciating with the puppet regime of Marshall Pétain than the Free French forces of Charles de Gaulle. A historical fact conviently forgotten in this day of recriminations.
