The signed parties called for a formal apology and “a process of reparatory justice,” among other things, asking for the immediate start of the conversation on the enduring impact of slavery.

“Immediately commit to starting discussions about reparations for the oppression of our peoples, the plundering of our resources, denigration of our culture, and to redistribute the wealth that underpins the Crown back to the peoples from whom it was stolen,” it added.

The letter also demanded the return of all cultural treasures and artifacts to the countries of their origin, as well as the repatriation of all remains currently held in UK museums and institutions, while also urging the UK Royal Family to adopt the renunciation of the ‘Doctrine of Discovery’, following in Pope Francis’ footsteps.

The doctrine used to serve as a justification of the rights of colonial powers to newly discovered territories and was denounced by the pontiff on March 30 in a statement condemning acts of violence and social injustice during colonial times.JAMB Result
