It is necessary that the nations that have given rise to this situation condemn colonialism, acknowledging their behaviour as a crime, they reconcile with their past, apologize and pay reparations to the colonized countries.
This decision will help create a climate of friendship and cooperation among peoples and create an extremely positive precedent in international relations, promoting the supremacy of the "force of law" on the "law of force".
Join the Call for the International Day for Reparations to make sure that the October 12, symbolic date of the beginning of Colonization, is commemorated every year all over the world with a series of events capable of concretely push the cause of the reparations. This initiative launched at the World Social Forum 2013 will give more strength and visibility to actions around this topic.
In the past, figures as famous as Condorcet, Callie House, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Frantz Fanon, Desmond Tutu, and Wole Soyinka have defended the principle of colonialism reparation but it is also its current consequences and the future potential of all things that is hampered by new forms of imperialist domination. We must continue the fight to get justice. Unity is strength, this is our credo!
For Justice for the past and the present! For Truth that changes History! For the Liberation of all peoples!
Newsletter 08/14 - European support to the Conference on reparations
The thirty-fifth meeting of the Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community took place from 1 to July 4, 2014 in Dickenson Bay, Antigua and Barbuda, with the participation of a dozen delegations. During the meeting the Caribbean nations adopted the "Caribbean reparatory justice Program" proposed on last March by the CARICOM Reparations Commission at the twenty-fifth inter-sessional meeting of the Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community.
The Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community then decided to write to the Governments of the former colonizing European nations (the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Denmark) inviting them to a Conference on reparations scheduled for late 2014 - early 2015 and to submit their request for reparations to the general Debate of the 69th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
CARICOM then convened the second regional Conference on reparations to increase the public debate and the commitment of the civil society on September 2014 and an academic conference to reach the Caribbean, the European and the international public opinion on late 2014.
On July 16, 2014 the Chairman of the CARICOM reparations Commission Hilary Beckles presented for the first time to the United Kingdom's Members of Parliament the meaning of the request for reparations of the members of the Caribbean Community, declaring that the reparatory justice will define the 21st century.
Colonialism Reparation supports the request for reparations for the genocide and the slavery of the native people of the members of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and calls on the former colonizers (the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Denmark) to attend the Conference on reparations scheduled for late 2014 - early 2015 by apologizing and paying reparations for the colonial period.
