We are not Marching this year because we always knew that we could not March forever, furthermore we have listened to our respective supporting organisations and communities who have been calling for more effective tactics in drawing attention to our cause.
We have instead chosen to lock-down Brixton because WE are not being HEARD in our demand for the UK Government to establish the All-Party Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry for Truth & Reparatory Justice (APPCITARJ) and to commit to holistic reparations taking into consideration various proposals for reparations in accordance with the United Nations Framework on a Right to a Remedy and Reparation, as being called for by the Stop the Maangamizi Campaign.
The terms of reference for the APPCITARJ should be to study the impact of the United Kingdom’s Transatlantic Traffic in Enslaved Afrikans on social, political and economic life within the UK and the rest of the world in order to begin understanding the legacies of enslavement on individuals, communities and the society we live in and commence a dialogue on how to address it, which go further than a symbolic apology.
The APPCITARJ’s work should be of a participatory nature, calling for submissions from all those with knowledge of the nature and impacts of enslavement and colonialism. This will aim to include, but not be limited to, testimony from: individuals, organisations, academics, communities, and nations. Affected communities and individuals must have their own voice, agency, and self-determined solutions in effecting and securing Reparatory Justice and steps must be taken to facilitate their participation in any reparatory process in which the UK Government, State and Society are engaged.
We hope you gain a fuller ovastanding about the purpose of the march, what we seek for our people and how you can get involved in the process. Please share with your friends and get them to sign the petition on https://www.change.org/p/stop-the-maangamizi-we-charge-genocide-ecocide
