Abstract:In the last two years, the Canary independence movement (MPAIAC) has turned to terrorism, drawing aid from Algeria and the OAU. This article shows that the Canary Islanders are almost unanimously against independence. Sections: origins - ancient and modern physical type - the conquest, 1402-96 colonization and slavery around 1500 - the re-growth of archipelago consciousness - archipelago problems in the 1970s - MPALAC: liberation movement without a people - the Canaries in international strategies the Canary and Sahara fishing grounds shared out by Madrid and Rabat - 1978: incipient stabilization in the Canaries?
