Condition Report

Very rare first edition. The session opens with the intervention of a delegation of ex-slaves of the Colonies: "Une deputation des hommes de couleur est admise a la barre". In his speech the speaker speaks of the decree of 16 pluviôse (4 February 1794), which had abolished slavery in the Colonies; conferring the status of French citizen to all the men domi- nated in the colonies, without distinction of color. Implicitly, trafficking is abolished with this decree.
