International Day for the Remembrance of the slave trade and its abolition


International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition is both a tribute to every victim and their resistance against slavery and a call for truth, justice and dialogue between peoples. The history of the slave trade is that of a battle, and eventually a victory, for freedom and human rights, symbolized by the uprising of the slaves of Santo Domingo on the night of 22 to 23 August 1791.
