Police in New Caledonia have broken up a blockade of the premises of the public broadcaster, RFO.
The blockade was set up by the USTKE union to back a demand that a long-time casual worker be given a permanent position.
The French high commission authorised the police action on the grounds that no advance notice had been given as set out by law.
Last year, a strike at RFO lasted for seven months.
Media in New Caledonia have consistently expressed concerns at the way they have been targetted.
