Festival "Un passé trop présent"

The festival 'Un passé trop présent' ('An all too present past') is organised by the undeclared Collectif Un passé trop présent in Fontenay-Sous-Bois (a town on the outskirts of Paris, Ile-de-France). Organised around 10th May, the festival focuses on the commemoration of slavery and runs for about two weeks from late April to mid-May. May 10th is France's national day for commemorating slavery, the slave trade and their abolitions. During this period, the group, assisted by other associations, organises conferences, debates, poetry contests, dancing, etc.
