Clone of Des associations de harkis réclament une loi reconnaissant les erreurs de la France

À l'occasion de la journée nationale des harkis, des associations réclament des mesures pour que la France reconnaisse ses erreurs à leur égard. La semaine dernière Emmanuel Macron a annoncé que 25 Harkis recevraient la légion d'honneur. Mais les 8000 survivants et leur famille attendent une reconnaissance du rôle de la France dans les souffrances endurées par ces combattants algériens qui ont rejoint les rangs de l'armée française durant la guerre d'indépendance. La secrétaire d'État auprès de la ministre des Armées, Geneviève Darrieussecq présente mardi 25 septembre de nouvelles mesures. Inspirées du rapport d'un groupe de travail remis fin juin, les décisions qui seront dévoilées au cours d'une cérémonie aux Invalides ambitionnent d'offrir "de nouvelles avancées en matière de reconnaissance, de réparation et de solidarité envers les harkis", ces anciens supplétifs de l'armée française pendant la guerre d'Algérie.
