Seems like the Algerians are doing it on the 5th!

Neat article on Algerian Independence  in French life that includes the experiences of the black feet (settlers) who had to return to France, and the indigenous French-loyal Algerians who fled to France or got killed in a surge of triumphalist nationalism.

The Algeria 1830-1962 celebration exhibition sounds like the kind of stuff the govt would pull here, and the right wing, empire rhyme sounds familiar.
