is the westernmost of the Austral Islands in French Polynesia.
The Blackadder Says: I disagree with the linked to article. Obviously a judge should not let popular protest lead him to decide cases contrary to the law. But if a judge or group of judges is already deciding cases contrary to the law, and popular protest could lead them to do their job, then I see no objection. The state shouldn't let guilty people out of jail based on public protest either, but if someone has been falsely convicted and public protest could lead to his being freed, then it seems perverse to say that this shouldn't be done on the grounds that it would go against the rule of law.
I'm not crazy about this one either. It seems to wrongly assume that protest are meant to directly change legislative or judicial action. But his point is well taken is that's is supposed to be the symbolic meaning of ending at the Supreme Court...
