CARICOM’s Reparatory Justice Campaign

(Barbados Today) In the coming months and years ahead, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) will be fleshing out an internationalist dimension of its Reparatory Justice Campaign.

Barbados Ambassador to CARICOM David Comissiong said the campaign will be striving for a world-wide transformation of centuries-old relationships between the peoples of the world; relationships that, tragically, are still based on old but persisting patterns of discrimination, exploitation, inequity and domination.

Comissiong addressed the issue; as he delivered the Annual Australia Nelson Mandela Lecture, at 6 a.m., via zoom today, where he spoke on the topic: Reparations and the Nelson Mandela Mission of Transforming and Humanizing Structures of Oppression.

“Indeed, you can expect to see the CARICOM Reparatory Justice Campaign promoting and striving for the sort of global justice that the world so desperately needs now – reparatory justice in all of its dimensions – climate justice, economic justice, social justice; as we strive for the new relationships that will shift the current destructive economic model towards social, economic and environmental sustainability,” Comissiong said.
