We need you and your support 365/24-7:
We march, we educate, we campaign, we outreach - Nationally and Internationally! We need £5,000 to carry out this year round mission. We have managed to reduce costs through buying reusable things and benefitting from contributions in kind. Still……
The annual Reparations March is not just one day on 1st Mosiah/August every year but is a year round process of organising education workshops, regional activities and campaign work! We have much to do before we deliver the Stop the Maangamizi petition on 1st Mosiah and we need your help to cover costs - no one is paid to serve our people!
We are calling on you to gather your support and contribution to the organising of and holding our people's reparations march which is a crucial part of the International Social Movement for Afrikan Reparations (ISMAR). The march from Windrush Sq in Brixton London, to Parliament Square takes place on 1st August every year. A delegation then hands in the Stop the Maangamizi We Charge Genocide/Ecocide Petition to 10 Downing St. Our target is to raise £6,000 (In addition to what committee members give throughout the year) to meet the costs of complying with regulations and ensuring people's safety and well being and most of all the success of the march and the Stop the Maangamizi We Charge Genocide/Ecocide Campaign.
Aims of the march are:
1. To draw attention to Afrikan peoples’ global determination to not let the British State and other perpetrators get away with the crimes of the Maangamizi (Afrikan hellacaust of chattel, colonial and neo-colonial enslavement).
2. To hand in the Stop the Maangamizi: We Charge Genocide/Ecocide petition requesting an All-Party Commission of Inquiry for Truth & Reparatory Justice in order to raise consciousness about the fact that all the attacks on us, in both individual and collective instances, amount to Genocide/Ecocide in Maangamizi continuity necessitating reparations.
3. To increase awareness of the necessity to ‘Stop the Maangamizi’ and its current manifestations such as austerity, attempts to recolonise Afrika, mentacide and deaths in police, psychiatric and prison custody.
4. To demonstrate Afrikan peoples’ strength, capacity and determination to speak to and challenge establishment power with our growing grassroots power to effect and secure reparations (reparatory justice) on our own terms.
5. To highlight Afrikan peoples grassroots demands and initiatives for effecting and securing reparations.
Every contribution is incredibly valuable and will go to something that is needed for our annual work programme leading up to the march.

Afrikan Emancipation Day Reparations March has evolved iinto a Pan- Afrikan Reparations Rebellion Groundings since 1st Mosiah 2020.
Whilst we still deliver the petition on 1st Mosiah to 10 Downing St (when Covid-19 restrictions are lifted), we no longer march from Windrush Square to Parliament Square.
Now, since 2020, the main purpose of the Pan-Afrikan Reparations Rebellion Groundings is to showcase our Afrikan Heritage Communities self-repairs initiatives locally, nationally and internationally.
We aim to build ovastanding and demonstrate that the achievement of a future restored Nation (Maatubuntuman) in a climate of global justice (Ubuntudunia) iis necessary and possible. To establish Maatubuntuman in Ubuntudunia is the overarching strategic goal of our efforts to secure Pan-Afrikan Reparations so we need to build knowledge and effect implementation of this through grounding with our brothers and sisters and engaging our people in this international social movement for Afrikan Reparations beyond the onle day when we continue to gather.
So what are groundings? An explanation can be found here via our partner website stopthemaangamizi.com
So how are we still a March Committee? We have reframed the word march to demonstrate a process towards our strategic goals. We take inspiration from musician Ossie Davis who said:
“We gotta fight!, the March to freedom, and the March to equality was in process when I was born, I just got on board. I suspect when they let me off and put me in one of those quiet places forever, the March will still be going on, and I will be able to tell history that, at least, when I was alive, there was a place for me in the line of March. You should be happy to say as much. That’s the reward for being alive, to be part of the struggle.”
Ossie Davis, Activist, Actor, Author
So we will still be showcasing, disrupting locally and bulding our capacity to secure reparatory justice. We must remember our goals will not be achieved by a one day event. We need you to continue the strategic work, the influencing, lobbying, challenging and organising all year round. It is the work we do the other 364 days of the year that makes 1st Mosiah possible - it is a means, not an end. Join us!
