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 02/14 - No to the recolonization of the Central African Republic
On December 3, 2013 the Minister of foreign affairs Laurent Fabius announced the French military intervention in the Central African Republic following the UN mandate that is approved by the Security Council two days later with resolution 2127.
The deployment of Sangaris operation has led to the presence of about 1,600 French soldiers on the Central African ground, which add to 1,900 in Djibouti, 950 in Chad, 200 in Niger, 200 in Burkina Faso, 2,500 in Mali, 350 in Senegal, 450 in Ivory Coast, 900 in Gabon and 750 in the Gulf of Guinea with the Corymbe mission, for a total amount of almost 10,000 French soldiers.
The French intervention in the Central African Republic continues along these lines the reorganization of the French military apparatus in the sub-saharan Africa inherited from the colonial times.
Currently there is a permanent presence in four new bases (Gao, Niamey, N'Djamena and Ouagadougou) that add to the four historical ones (Dakar, Abidjan, Libreville and Djibouti) thus allowing a full control of the territory of the former French colonial empire.
Colonialism Reparation calls on France to carry out the immediate withdrawal of its troops and asks that the armed forces of the Central African Republic be placed side by side only with the support mission of the African Union (MISCA) without any support missions of the European Union and the UN.
