France names slavery memorial day…

France will hold a national day of remembrance for the victims of slavery every 10 May, President Jacques Chirac has announced. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4662442.stm

Commentary: It is about time. Atonement together with reparation are the only options all the beneficiaries of the slave system will be left with as time goes on. The vagaries of post modern life will leave humanity with only two choices…atonement or punishment.
