Petition Action

Provide reparations for the African and Caribbean slave trade

Petition Details

To date the UK government has consistently refused to provide reparations or compensation to Africa and the Caribbean for the appalling atrocity that was the slave trade. Other countries have received compensation for similar wrong doings, victims of the Holocaust is one clear example.

Additional Information

It seems to be just crazy how in today's day and age an injustice such as this can go on, without any clear sense of resolution. What's more, the Government did actually make financial pay-outs to the slave owners at the time, and only just recently finished paying off those debts. Yet the liberated people themselves received not even a penny.

Victims of the World War and Holocaust received compensation by Germany, a fund co-ordinated by the US and UK governments.
