This Friday February 1, Mauritius celebrates the 178th anniversary of the abolition of slavery.
 
Many official festivities mark the event including Mahebourg and Le Morne in the southwest of the island, a symbolic place of slave resistance in flight.
 
The Association socio cultural Rastafarian (ASCR) will start a march on its side at the foot of Le Morne, not to forget this part of Mauritian history, as related lemauricien.com. "The march of February 1 is very important. Le Morne is a mystical place. This is a sacred place", said José Rose, president of the ASCR.
 
The Rastafarian association does not hesitate to criticize the government. "When we planned our first pilgrimage, the government was very helpful. Such assistance has not been renewed", complained José Rose.
 
The ASCR also said that they fail to understand that many Indian and Sri Lankan workers come to Mauritius in the labor sector, while at the same time African immigration to Mauritius hardly exists.
