People of Reunion Island blame Paris for inflation, poverty

Despite French government backing down on fuel tax rise, why islanders remain upset?

Even as the French government has suspended its controversial decision to increase the fuel tax, which had led to violent protests lasting for weeks, people of Reunion Island are not too happy.

The inhabitants of this French territory, which saw the spread of protests, say the government concession will make little difference.
