10 June - Abolition Day
The public holiday has been celebrated since 2012. It is also sometimes referred to as Emancipation Day. The historical event dates back to the date of the abolition of slavery in what is now French Guiana in 1848.
On April 27, 1848, the French government announced the abolition of slavery in its colonies and granted citizenship to the emancipated slaves. However, the news took over a month until June 10, 1848 to reach French Guiana, which is why French Guiana celebrates June 10 as Abolition Day.
