As we continue our focus on Reparations we continually want to shine a light on Self Reparations. In our previous feature we covered a number of points as it relates to steps we can take to advance the empowerment of our people.
We at OAH would like to add to this by calling for the respective Reparation Task Forces that have been activated to gather information on atrocities done to us during the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade and the effects of this that we live with today, to also address issues of atrocities being done to our people by our people.
An example of this would be the manner in which the Commission for Pan African Affairs is being dealt with by the government of Barbados who is a major role player in his call for Reparations. Why do some of our governments that support the call for reparations put stumbling blocks in the way of Black Business men and women? Why are no or little adjustments being made to address the sort comings of our legal and educational systems?
How can we seek economic compensation from Europe whilst orchestrating economic terror on our own people. There has to be a call to accountability for all those governments and civil activist who have openly supported the call for Reparations.
1.SHOULD REPARATION TASK FORCES BE MANDATED TO BRING INTO FOCUS ISSUES THAT RELATE TO THE HINDRANCE OF OUR SELF REPAIR?
2.SHOULD REPARATION TASK FORCES BE PRESSURE GROUPS OF SORTS TO GET GOVERNMENTS TO ADDRESS ISSUES RELATED TO OUR SELF REPAIR
Your answers are of great value to us as this magazine will uncover the ultimate intent of the people leading the reparations charge here in the Caribbean and with assistance from you call them to account. OAH is here to echo your voices. Let us be wise and act as such.
Again all comments/answers are crucial to our development.
