  • French Guiana - magnet for immigrants

    Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe French Guiana, an overseas region of France on the northern Atlantic coast of South America, appears to be a magnet for immigrants, both legal and illegal, from all over the world. The 2,000km-long frontier of French Guiana - which consists of a single department - is bordered between Suriname and Brazil by rivers, making its borders porous and difficult to police. These factors, as well as what local politician Paulin Brune calls "liberal" French immigration laws, have made the region a gateway to Europe.

An infusion of French culture and history intermingle with South America's ancient indigenous populations. Flying high above the rich ecosystems of the Amazon rainforest, a symphony of sounds radiate vertically above the clouded canopy. Navigating through the dusty streets of the capital city of Cayenne, it's a city society with flavours and experiences unrivaled in its diversity.

It borders Brazil to the east and south, and Suriname to the west. Its 83,534 km2 (32,253 sq mi) area has a very low population density of less than 3 inhabitants per km2, with half of its 239,450 people in 2012[1] living in the metropolitan area of Cayenne, its capital. By land area, it is by far the largest overseas region of France. As an oversea region, it is inside the European Union. The addition of the adjective "French" in English comes from colonial times when five such colonies existed (The Guianas), namely from west to east: Spanish Guiana (now Guayana Region in Venezuela), British Guiana (now Guyana), Dutch Guiana (now Suriname), French Guiana, and Portuguese Guiana (now Amapá, a state in far northern Brazil). French Guiana and the two larger countries to the north and west, Guyana and Suriname, are still often collectively referred to as the Guianas and comprise one large shield landmass. A large part of the department's economy derives from the presence of the Guiana Space Centre, now the European Space Agency's primary launch site near the equator.

Île Saint-Joseph was the Reclusion, where inmates were sent to be punished by solitary confinement in silence and darkness for escapes or offences committed in the penal colony. Île du Diable was for political prisoners. In the 19th century, the most famous such prisoner was Captain Alfred Dreyfus. In addition to the prisons on each of the three islands in the Salut island group, the French constructed three related prison facilities on the South American mainland, just across the straits at Kourou; 30 miles east in Cayenne, which later became the capital of French Guyana; and a hundred miles west at St. Laurent. The islands were part of a penal colony from 1852 onwards for common-law criminals of France, who were convicted by juries rather than magistrates. The main part of the penal colony was a labor camp that stretched along the border with Dutch Guiana (present-day Suriname). This penal colony was controversial as it had a reputation for harshness and brutality. Prisoner-on-prisoner violence was common; tropical diseases were rife. Only a small minority of broken survivors returned to France to tell how horrible it was; they sometimes scared other potential criminals to go straight. This system was gradually phased out and has been completely shut down since 1953. Since the late 20th century, the islands have been tourist destinations. The islands were featured in the book Papillon (1970), published as a memoir by Henri Charrière, a former prisoner who escaped. Devil's Island and associated prisons eventually became one of the most infamous prison systems in history. While the prison system was in use (1852–1953), inmates included political prisoners (such as 239 republicans who opposed Napoleon III's coup d'état in 1851) and the most hardened of thieves and murderers. The vast majority of the more than 80,000 prisoners sent to the Devil's Island prison system never made it back to France. Many died due to disease and harsh conditions. Sanitary systems were limited, and the region was mosquito-infested, with endemic tropical diseases. The only exit from the island prisons was by water, and few convicts escaped. A common way for convicts to earn money was to trap butterflies, which were sold to collectors. Convicts who were lucky enough to have family willing to send them money had to have it sent to them in care of a prison guard. The standard practice was for the guard to keep a quarter of the amount sent for himself and give the rest to the prisoner. On 30 May 1854, France passed a new law of forced residency. It required convicts to stay in French Guiana after completion of sentence for a time equal to their forced labour time. If the original sentence exceeded eight years, they were forced to stay as residents for the remainder of their lives and were provided land to settle on. In time, a variety of penal regimes emerged, as convicts were divided into categories according to the severity of their crimes and the terms of their imprisonment or "forced residence" regime. The horrors of the penal settlement were publicized during the Dreyfus affair, as the French army captain Alfred Dreyfus was unjustly convicted of treason and sent to Devil's Island on 5 January 1895. In 1938 the penal system was strongly criticized in Rene Belbenoit's book Dry Guillotine. Shortly after the release of Belbenoit's book, which aroused public outrage about the conditions, the French government announced plans to close the bagne de Cayennes. The outbreak of World War II delayed this operation but, from 1946 until 1953, one by one the prisons were closed. The Devil's Island facility was the last to be closed.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. According to the Worldwide Waterfall Database’s rankings of the top waterfalls in the world, Guyana is home to the No. 2 waterfall — Kaieteur Falls. Kaieteur Falls in Guyana is around 741ft (226m) high and this means it’s over four times higher than the Niagara Falls (51m). 2. It is the only English-speaking country in South America, along with being one of the four non-Spanish speaking regions, and is the only South-American country to have English as its official language (the others are Brazil, Suriname, and French Guiana). 3. Guyana has vast areas of rainforests which are considered to be the most unspoiled rainforests in the world. Almost 80% of this country is covered by forests which boast of rich biodiversity with some endemic and some atypical species of plants and animals. 4. On November 18, 1978, American religious cult leader Jim Jones, along with his 909 followers, committed mass suicide in Jonestown in Guyana which threw the country into sudden attention worldwide. This mass suicide, done for political reasons, was considered the greatest loss of American civil life in a single non-natural event until the September 11, 2001 attacks. 5. The capital of Guyana is Georgetown, which lies at the mouth of the Demerara River on the Atlantic Ocean. It was founded in 1781 and is named after the British King George III. It was renamed by the French to Longchamps and the Dutch to Stabroek, by retaken by the British in 1814 and called Georgetown again. 6. Guyana has a large Indian (South Asian) population. Nearly half of its population is of Indian heritage, and nearly thirty percent of Guyanese practice Hinduism. Slavery was outlawed in 1834, and the great need for plantation workers led to a large wave of immigration, primarily of East Indians. 7. Guyana has two of the world’s longest floating bridges. Among the world’s longest bridges is the Demerara Harbor Bridge, which is 1,851 meter long, and the Berbice River Bridge 1,570 meters both of these bridges are pontoon floating bridges which stretches across two of the main three rivers of Guyana.

Country number 9 of 10 on my Caribbean island hop by air. I fly into Guyana, on the northern coast of South America. Then disaster happens - I break my arm and end up visiting a local hospital. Stitched up and in a sling, I still manage to see some of the sights of Georgetown, Guyana's colourful capital city.
