President Hollande told the Algerian Parliament France's behaviour in France was "brutal and unfair"
He also said"
"For 132 years, Algeria was subjected to a brutal and unfairsystem: colonisation. I acknowledge the suffering it caused"
"We respect the act of memory, of all the memories. There is a duty of truth on the violence, the injustices, the massacres and the torture,"
"On May 8, 1945, when the world triumphed over brutality, France forgot its universal values,"
What do you think? Is it a waste of time for people to ackloweldge their colonial past? Did he go to far? Not far enough?
