Zonm Lib or Liberation Monument

Island: Victoria
Location: Bois de Rose Avenue, Victoria

Description

The "Zonm Lib" Liberation Monument represents a major political landmark in the history of Seychelles. To all Seychellois people who revolted against colonialist oppression and injustice on the 5th June 1977, it is a powerful symbol of La Liberté. Standing behind the People’s Stadium and facing the 5th June Avenue, the "Zonm Lib" is a metal statue in the form of a robust masculine figure with both arms raised high, its clenched fists freed from chains, demonstrating triumphant defiance and victory for a truly independent nation.
