Abstract
After a long strike of civil servants in 2005, dramatic events occurred in November 2006 in Tonga. The evolution of the social structure focusing on the role of emerging social classes, especially middle classes, the development of a pro-democracy movement, the important weight carried by the diaspora are analysed to try to understand these events.
