SECTIONS OF THE AFRIKA CONTINGENT OF THE ISMAR ARE SPEAKING:
ARE WE LISTENING?
We in the ‘Stop the Maangamizi: We Charge Genocide/Ecocide Campaign’ (SMWeCGEC) give special acknowledgement to those Brethren & Sistren who are part of the continental Afrikan contingent of the International Social Movement for Afrikan Reparations (ISMAR) who organised solidarity events with SMWeCGEC in partnership with the 1st August Afrikan Emancipation Day Reparations March. We recognise the difficulties you have faced from state and non-state agents in co-organising in fraternal league with us as the Afrikan Diaspora in Europe.
We particularly highlight the Ovaherero Genocide Foundation (OJF) event that took place in Namibia on 1st August 2017:
In addition, we give thanks for the SANKOFAAPAE Pan-Afrikan Reparatory Justice Libation Ceremony which took place at Osikan, Jamestown, Accra, Ghana organised by Vazoba featuring Dr. Ọbádélé Kambon of Abibitumikasa http://www.abibitumikasa.com
Please see the video presentation of Dr. Ọbádélé Kambon – REPARATIONS? RETRIBUTION! OR HOW DO YOU REPAIR WHAT IS STILL ACTIVELY IN THE PROCESS OF BEING DESTROYED? which was delivered on 1st August 2017 annual SANKOFAAPAE Pan-Afrikan Reparatory Justice Libation Ceremony at Osikan, Jamestown, Accra, Ghana organised by Vazoba.
The SANKOFAAPAE Pan-Afrikan Reparatory Justice International Libation Ceremony (SANKOFAAPAE-PARJILC) is a strictly non-party political activity of various grassroots progressive forces of Pan-Afrikan civil society which are independently mobilizing for the ground-up popular education, reparatory justice civic conscientization and its relevant human, peoples’ and Mother Earth rights awareness raising among ordinary masses of peoples throughout the World to achieve our vision of Pan-Afrikan Reparations for Global Justice.
We recognise this SANKOFAAPAE as a unity promotional endeavour, of global dimensions, for connecting into the global Pan-Afrikan reparatory justice struggle, the efforts being made by various in Afrikan communities to assert their rights to self-determination and reconstruction of nationhood including overcoming the divisions imposed by the artificially created European borders and other manifestations of the Maangamizi that continue into the present to the detriment of their Afrikan personality, humanity and sovereignty.
The SANKOFAAPAE is also relevant to providing global visibility for such self-determination battles and the communities waging them in order to facilitate Pan-Afrikan internationalist solidarity for them, including enabling them to participate in efforts of rematriation*/voluntary repatriation as part of Pan-Afrikan reparatory justice. In so doing, Afrikans from the Diaspora can reintegrate into such communities and make their contributions to ensuring recognition, justice and sustainable development in accordance with the ‘Right to Afrika’ which we are promoting as the most vital aspect of the UN ‘International Decade for People of African Descent’.
*The Indigenous concept of ‘Rematriation’ refers to restoring a living material culture to its rightful place on Mother Earth; restoring a people to a spiritual way of life, in sacred relationship with their ancestral lands; and reclaiming ancestral remains, spirituality, culture, knowledge and resources.
