Have we been already paid?

Sir Hilary Beckles and others have presented compelling moral and legal arguments for reparations from Britain for Caribbean slavery.

Recent reparation payments to other victim groups suggest that the payment of Caribbean’s reparation claims is achievable. We currently have national and regional task forces pursuing reparations, and our Minister of Culture has recently declared that we should continue to pursue them.

The UK appears not to want to discuss the issue of reparations. What the various reparations groups want as a first step is an honest discussion.
