Port Louis - Saturday 17 October 2020 - Conversation about the theme and Commemoration

We are already planning to have our commemoration at Case Noyale, including a conversation about the theme followed by the commemoration.

We also intend to have a small group consisting of persons of the October 17 committee, with a short symbolic gathering at the commemorative stone called “Mémoire” at Port-Louis Waterfront just after the commemoration from Case Noyale. 

This will take place from 2:00pm-4:00.
