THEME OF THIS YEAR'S PEOPLES OPEN PARLIAMENTARY SESSION ON AFRIKAN REPARATIONS (POPSAR) DEBATE
(at Parliament Sq)
‘Black on Black Violence’: Why
are we not stopping this manifestation of the Maangamizi?
It will debate this motion:
This gathering believes that we as Afrikan Heritage Communities are not doing what is necessary to stop this manifestation of the
Rationale for this
So called 'Black on Black
Violence' and the killings among ourselves are an issue that most people in our communities are concerned about and has elicited many campaigns, marches etc. around individual killings of young
persons and other community members. In a time of heightened state aggression, those who are oppressed are more likely to act out 'reactionary violence' against each other. We have a whole army of
potential soldiers for our people's liberation locked up and criminalised. As a movement, the International Social Movement for Afrikan Reparations (ISMAR) must also build the capacity to address
this problem as well as hold to account state perpetrators. Not appearing to address this problem is a barrier to securing forms of external redress and reparations and also a barrier to winning
people over to the support the cause of holistic reparatory justice for people of Afrikan heritage.
Yet, violence against men, women, children and young
people of Afrikan heritage is an extension of a broader social process of so called anti-black or anti-Afrikan genocide in
the fact that micro-sites inter-personal violence between persons of Afrikan heritage communities, are not isolated manifestations. Instead, they are extensions of
macro-state processes of violence. In other words, we must read inter-personal violence against men, women, children and young people of Afrikan heritage as part of the continuum of the state’s
racialized, gendered, sexualized violence against Afrikan heritage communities. This is about showing the state’s complicity in ongoing
intra-community violence which is in itself a ground for reparatory justice for those living today.
Anti-Black genocide scholars such as Joao. H. Vargas have
established that intra-community violence is part of the the “genocidal continuum” of global anti-black violence (Vargas 2008).
