Contributions from the Senegal participants

In response to the questionnaire on the theme of collective wounds, we received several reflections from the Senegalese participants. You will find them at the bottom of this page.

Some quotes from these texts

“The tragedy of the sinking of the boat Le Joola, on September 26, 2002, which caused 1863 deaths, is one of the worst wounds my country has ever known.”

“Our country suffers from very old wounds such as the harmful consequences of slavery
and colonization.”

The abuse of democracy and unauthorized political demonstrations have caused many deaths for over a decade.

“We can also add the discriminations made towards women, their place in society is always to be behind. The woman is just to marry and have children.”
