The implementation of a system of economic, social and linguistic domination on the French part of Saint-Martin as of 1977 irremediably transformed the islanders' peaceful lifestyle and quality of life. The island became a type of Eldorado in which the world of business, drugs, illegality, criminality and all kinds of trafficking unfortunately prevailed. The natives are almost eliminated from the social and economic structure, and their Caribbean culture is stifled.
