French St. Martin commemorates abolishment of slavery

POSTED: 05/28/12 3:39 PM

AGREMENT, St. Martin – The French side of our island commemorated yesterday the 164th anniversary of the abolishment of slavery in Agrément where the statue of Lady Liberty took center stage. Wreaths were laid by Collectivité President Alain Richardson and by the Préfet Délégué Philippe Chopin, but above all the island’s slavery history was depicted in vivid detail, as this photo impression by Andrew Bishop shows.
