From 19 to 22 May 1955, during the 11th National Congress of the Popular Republican Movement (MRP) in Marseille, Joseph Dumas, MP for the Seine département, reviews the situation in the French Union. Emphasising the tragic consequences of the loss of Indo-China, he calls on France to respond to the expectations of Sub-Saharan Africa and analyses the situation in Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria.
