Caribbean Takes Europe to Court
And the charges are no joke.
Fourteen Caribbean nations are trying to sue some European countries for the damage they have done. The Caribbean nations are igniting a flame under the bosom of Great Britain and France.
The Caribbean nations are seeking slave reparations. Their assertion is that the awful legacy of the Atlantic slave trade has left a legacy which still exists in the Caribbean. They want restitution, and they’re not going down without a fight.
This isn’t the first time some European nations have sued for slave reparations. In the 50s and 60s fight for liberation, hundreds of Kenyans received compensation after they were tortured by British colonial government.
Do you think Europe owes the Caribbean slavery reparations?
