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 11/13 - The Caribbean nations are demanding reparations
On July 6, 2013 the thirty-four summit of the Heads of Government of CARICOM decided to promote actions to monitor the reparations for the genocide of the native people and slavery by setting up some "national reparations committees" in each member State and a "regional reparations Commission" composed of the chairmens of the national committees.
The First Regional Conference on Reparations was held in Kingstown, the capital of Saint Vincent and The Grenadines, from September 15 to 17, 2013 with the attendance of twelve Caribbean nations and the presence of representatives from the UK, France, the Netherlands, the United States and Canada. The conference outlined the objectives of the "regional reparations Commission", proposed the relating offices that will be ratified by the Heads of Government of CARICOM, decided to create a web site of the Regional Commission and urged for setting up some national committees where they do not exist yet.
The general Debate of the 68th session of the UN General Assembly was held from September 24 to October 1, 2013 in New York; during the debate the delegates of Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago demanded reparations for the genocide of the native people and slavery. In the final press conference of the President of the General Assembly the request for reparations of CARICOM was evoked as well.
Colonialism Reparation supports the request for reparations for the genocide of the native people and slavery presented to the United Nations General Assembly by the members of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and calls on the former colonizers (United Kingdom, France, The Netherlands, etc. ) to apologize and pay compensation for the colonial period. This decision will help create a climate of friendship and cooperation among peoples and set an extremely positive precedent in international relations, promoting the supremacy of the "force of law" on the "law of force".
