Colonialism Reparation supports the demands of reparations to the Caribbean and calls on the United Nations for the complete withdrawal of MINUSTAH and the compensation of victims of the cholera epidemic.

On June 1, 2017, the Court of Basse-Terre in Guadeloupe has concluded the trial for the demand of reparations for slavery to the French State fixing the date of the sentence on September 7. The lawyers of the CIPN (Comité International des Peuples Noirs) have called for the appointment of a panel of experts to assess the suffered damages and to propose the reparatory measures for the descendants of the victims.

On June 23, 2017, dozens of organisations and five Nobel Peace Laureates supported the demand for justice of the Haitian people by calling on the United Nations Security Council delegation visiting Haiti for the complete withdrawal of MINUSTAH and the compensation of victims of the cholera epidemic.

From 4 to July 6, 2017, was held in Grand Anse, Grenada, the thirty-eighth Summit of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community with the participation of about twenty delegations. During the meeting, the Caribbean Nations noted responses to the letters sent to European leaders and mandated the CARICOM Reparations Commission to coordinate the preparation of a diplomatic, communicative and training strategy to advance the reparations claim.

Colonialism Reparation supports the demands of reparations to the Caribbean and calls on the United Nations, as already done in November 2011 and September 2016, for the complete withdrawal of MINUSTAH and the compensation of victims of the cholera epidemic.

About Colonialism Reparation
Colonialism Reparation is part of the movement for the condemnation, the reconciliation, the apologies and the compensation for colonialism.
Colonialism Reparation promotes, supports and spreads non-violent activities aimed to create awareness of the current world situation and thereby to encourage the achievement of its objective
  • that the colonising nations condemn their colonial past recognising it as a crime against humanity and that the colonised nations exert pressure to make it happen
  • that the colonising nations reconcile with their past, permanently distancing themselves from it by officially apologising the colonised nations
  • that the colonising nations compensate the colonised nations for the atrocities and abuses committed thus allowing an improvement in their socio-economic conditions.
The contribution of every person who recognises the importance of this activity to the creation of a climate of friendship and cooperation between peoples is necessary and appreciated. This contribution will create an extremely positive precedent in international relations as well, promoting the supremacy of the “force of law” on the “law of force”.
