France to rewrite disputed law

Postby KarenS » Fri Jan 06, 2006 7:42 am

The law that caused demonstrations in Guadeloupe has had French President Chirac re-examining his decision. The article reads: "POINTE-A-PITRE, Guadeloupe (AP) - Guadeloupe officials welcomed France's decision yesterday to rewrite a disputed law requiring textbook publishers to put a positive spin on the country's colonial past.

The law, which was passed by the conservative-led parliament last February, has caused outrage in France's former colonial empire.

French President Jacques Chirac, yesterday said the law that ordered school textbooks to highlight the positive role of France's colonial past, was dividing the French and should be revamped."
