Petition Pay Slavery Reparations to all Caribbean & African Descendants
We are calling on the Government to compensate all African & Caribbean descendants so that we can move to a more equal society. Time is up and if Slave Owners can be compensated for losing their slaves, the Government should compensate the descendants of the injustice the British Empire caused.
In 2015, Britain’s tax payers finally paid off what is equivalent of billions of pounds to former slave owners to compensate them for losing their slaves in 1833; ignoring the impact on the African and Caribbean descendants, throwing them into a systematically racist society and expecting them to pull themselves up by their bootstraps as they were and still can be today discriminated in areas of housing, access to capital, job opportunities, police interactions & sentencing.
