What are these people protesting?

I know they want to abolish slavery, but I don't know what slavery, or where. I was under the impression that France had abolished slavery quite some time ago.

If it helps, the photo was taken on 10 May 2006, in Toulouse.

Algeria, perhaps?

Also, depending on the exact nature of the protest, they could still be riled up about the CPE, but that should have died down since Villepin withdrew it.

Best answer: Via the Associated Press : France Commemorates Slave Trade Victims.

Response by poster: mragreeable: that makes perfect sense! There was some sort of public concert going on in the Place du Capitole a few hours later.

AskMe knows all!
