Kourou to stay ‘French’ - 12-January-2010, 11:08

Written by Chris Forrester
Monday, 11 January 2010

At Kourou, in French Guiana, is based the huge complex for the giant Arianespace rocket facility. On Sunday voters had the opportunity to choose greater autonomy.
They rejected the idea, and voted to stay wholly ‘French' despite their South American equatorial location. Voters on the Caribbean island of Martinique voted in a similar fashion.
Slightly over 48 percent of Guianian voters cast ballots in the Sunday referendum, with 69.8 percent voting against more autonomy, according to definitive results released by French authorities.
