Slavery reparations panel in Jamaica to examine if compensation should be sought from Britain
Published November 01, 2012
Associated Press
KINGSTON, Jamaica – Jamaica has revived a reparations commission to research slavery's social and economic impact and examine whether the predominantly black Caribbean island should seek compensation or a formal apology from Britain to heal old wounds, officials said Thursday.
The government-formed commission has about 2½ years to receive submissions, evaluate research and undertake public consultations in order to make recommendations for a possible reparations claim, said chairwoman Verene A. Shepherd, a historian who is director of the Institute for Gender and Development Studies at Jamaica's University of the West Indies.
Shepherd said the work of the reconvened commission started Thursday. It is made up of roughly a dozen academics, lawyers, Rastafarians and students. A previous panel formed in 2009 was disbanded a year later due to financial constraints.
Jamaica is a former British colony where slavery was abolished on Aug. 1, 1834.
Although estimates vary, researchers say tens of millions of African men, women and children were enslaved and shipped to the Caribbean and the Americas, with millions dying in holding camps in Africa or during the trans-Atlantic voyage.
Historians say their labor alone made a vast difference to the economies of the New and Old World. In Jamaica, most slaves were forced to work under brutal conditions on sugar plantations.
Shepherd said that coming up with a financial estimate for reparations is critical to coming to terms with the lasting legacy of slavery in Jamaica and the rest of the Caribbean, even if a monetary payout never pans out.
"It's not about saying that there has to be a financial settlement. But getting an estimate of the financial damage of slavery is important because it gives you an idea of the magnitude of this crime against humanity," she said.
A financial estimate will also give an idea of "what will be necessary to fix these countries that have suffered," Shepherd said. She said the legacy of slavery has impaired Caribbean nations' ability to advance and compete globally.
Reparation advocates have previously estimated the damages "owed" to descendants of African slaves in the trillions of U.S. dollars.
Commission member Anthony Gifford, a prominent British-Jamaican lawyer, said he hopes the Jamaican panel's work will spur a combined reparations effort across the region. "I would like to see it approached on a Caribbean-wide basis," he said.
Last year, Antigua Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer called for reparations at the United Nations.
In 2004, a coalition of Rastafarian groups in Jamaica said European countries formerly involved in the slave trade, especially Britain, should pay 72.5 billion British pounds to resettle 500,000 Jamaican Rastafarians in Africa. The British government rejected the claim, saying it could not be held accountable for wrongs in past centuries.
On Thursday, the British High Commission in Jamaica said it had no comment on the reparations commission.
In 2006, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair expressed deep sorrow for Britain's role in the slave trade but stopped short of offering an apology.

Ou kwè ke si ta gen yon mouvman konsa lan KARIKÒM ;ou kwè ke AYITI t ap patisipe?
Se pa yon bagay izole ;mesye BLACK CAUCUS lan KONGRÈ AMERIKEN an te entwodwi LEJISLASYON pou mande ESKLAVAJIS yo REPARASYON.
LEJISLASYON sa a pa janm rive lwen ;men toujou gen plis ke omwens 100 KONGRÈSMANN ki dispoze vote pou li.
Nou sonje pwoblèm ,voye monte ke NÈG te fè ann AYITI lè ARISTIDE te mande reparasyon?
NÈG pa konprann ke menm si ou pa jwenn reparasyon sa a men se pou ZÒT rekonèt TÒ yo te fè;TÒ ki pa sèlman ekonomik men psikolojik tou!
