Commemoration of trafficking, slavery and their abolition

May 10 is chosen as the national commemoration day against trafficking and slavery, in reference to May 10, 2001, when the French Senate adopted a law that recognized slave trade as a crime against humanity. The commemoration day is different in some overseas areas: April 27 in Mayotte, May 22 in Martinique, May 27 in Guadeloupe, June 10 in Guyana, and December 20 in RĂ©union.
