The Nobel Prize for Literature 2021 will be awarded this Thursday 7 October. Will he be awarded one or one French? Hard to say. But, given the regular successes of the French authors, the hypothesis is never to dismiss. Especially as Annie Ernaux makes, for some, figure in favorite.

An unprecedented approach from a President of the Republic. No speech is planned, but it is a step towards recognition of the facts.

The weekend is marked by the commemorations of the 60th anniversary of the October 17, 1961 , day during which a peaceful manifestation of Algerian immigrants had been savagely repressed by the Parisian police. On the initiative of the National Liberation Front (FLN), between 20,000 and 30,000 Algerians, from Aubervilliers, Nanterre, Colombes, Courbevoie or Saint-Denis expressed their support for the independence of Algeria. Official assessment: Six dead. At least 120, now believe the historians. This Saturday, Emmanuel Macron commemorates the event by chairing a ceremony at the foot of the Bezons Bridge, in Colombes, not far from Nanterre's bidonville from where many protesters had gone.

An unprecedented approach

The approach is unpublished by a French president. Until now, never a French head of state had commemorated the massacre of October 17, 1961. Emmanuel Macron will deposit a sheaf at the edge of the Seine, before respecting a minute of silence alongside children and small children protesters. "A presence that means recognition of facts", decrypts a chief state advisor.

Emmanuel Macron will not pronounce any speech. Only one text will be broadcast to the press and published on the Elysee website. In 2012, François Hollande had recognized via a press release "A bloody repression" to qualify the night of October 17, 1961.

Through the choice of words, Emmanuel Macron is preparing to take a step more but or apologies nor forgiveness are a priori envisaged. This commemoration will surely be started in Algeria while the Franco-Algerian relations have recently cooled. On the side of the Elysée, a single message: "This event belongs to our national memory."
