The memorial plaque placed on pont Marie commemorating the murder of Algerians on October 17th 1961.

A memorial plaque was placed on pont Marie on the 40th anniversary of the brutal repression of a demonstration march of people protesting against a curfew prohibiting Algerians from circulating after 9 pm during the Algerian war of independence. The plaque was put up in the morning, with plenty of speeches by politicians, and people stayed around until late in the evening.
