Protesters Call for Decolonisation of Public Spaces at Paris Demo

Dozens of protesters gathered on Sunday afternoon in Paris to demand that public spaces be ‘decolonised,’ on the anniversary of Algeria’s gaining independence from France.

According to the demonstrators, monuments and street names linked to slavery and France’s colonial history should disappear from public spaces.

The groups Decolonising the Arts and the Anti-Negrophobia Brigade were present at the march took part in the march, with marchers symbolically renaming some street and place names along the route.

”The sense of the anti-colonial walk is to ask for the re-nomenclature of a number of streets, public spaces and statues representing people who were active in the era of slavery and colonization, who were colonialist and slave killers. We feel insulted that there are still these symbols of a period of inequality in our streets,” said Said Buamama from the United Front of Immigrants and Popular Districts.
