Abstract: Por ocasião dos 60 anos da independência do Congo, em 30 de Junho passado, numa carta ao presidente congolês, Félix Tshisekedi, o rei Philippe da Bélgica apresentou oficialmente, pela primeira vez, desculpas (“les plus profonds regrets”) pelas “feridas coloniais” que a Bélgica provocou à sua antiga colónia africana. A manifestação do soberano inscreve-se no movimento de revisão (complexo, tumultuoso, mais reativo do que reflexivo) do passado de injustiças que se manifestou através de multíplices atos iconoclastas em relação aos monumentos que são símbolo de violações históricas de direitos, hoje, consagrados.
On the 30th June 2020, on the 60th anniversary of Congo's independence, in a letter to the Congolese president, Félix Tshisekedi, King Philip of Belgium for the first time officially apologized (expressing “les plus profonds regrets”) for the “colonial wounds” that Belgium inflicted on its former African colony. The king’s gesture is part of a (complex, tumultuous, and more reactive than reflective) revisionist movement in relation to historic injustices. The movement has manifested through acts of iconoclasm against the monuments that today symbolize and consecrate historical violations of rights.
