Why PRALER is needed

We need an educational revolution based on many knowledges and overstandings of Planet Repairs, if we are to overcome the central role of white supremacist and imperialist miseducation* in producing desk-killers and other criminal perpetrators of epistemicide, genocide, and ecocide. As such, communities everywhere must take back the definition of education, to empower ourselves, for our collective liberation, for Cognitive Justice and to win Planet Repairs.

[*Miseducation includes the deliberate refusal to see alternative processes of education for liberation that indigenous and other communities of resistance keep on developing, the marginalisation of their institutions, and

the de-legitimisation of indigenous and other communities of resistance efforts for Planet Repairs.]

“When safeguarding the rights of past, present and future generations: the need to proceed from a standpoint of Pluriversality that highlights the nexus of reparatory, environmental and cognitive justice in articulating the impetus to repair holistically our relationship with, and inseparability from, Mother Earth, Environment and the Pluriverse giving due recognition to Indigenous Knowledges in contrast with western-centric Enlightenment ideals that separated Humanity from Nature and thereby justified exploitation for capital accumulation.” - Esther Stanford-Xosei

Planet Repairs, as named here by Esther, has emerged as a holstic political project from the Pan-Afrikan Movement for Reparations and directs all of the PRALER's programs of work.

Building the UPCOPRAL - the UBUNTUPACHAVIDYA Peoples' Communiversity of Planet Repairs Action Learning

The objective of PRALER is to strengthen the position of our communities and our struggles and to build from these an interconnected and inter-communal commons of knowledge. In practice this means rebuilding Internationalist institutions, networks, and relationships that allow our movements to build global power together and fight together - including PRALER's work to build the UPCOPRAL.

UPCOPRAL is the vision of a complex for unifying peoples' power through educational systems and processes, highlighting indigeneity, decolonisation, and Pluriversality, to secure Transformative Adaptation, and Planet Repairs Action-Learning Educational Revolution, to produce an increasingly interconnected global academy commons.

UBUNTUPACHAVIDYA is a Global Justice conceptual framework of Intercultural Communion for the Internationalist Solidarity Defence of human, peoples' and Mother Earth’s Rights. 


  • Afrikan concept  of "Ubuntu"; (seeing one's own Humanity in the shared Humanity of all peoples of the World )

  • Plus the indigenous concept  from Abya Yala (so-called Latin America) of "Pachamama" (Living Mother Earth);

  • Together with the indigenous Asian concept of "Vidya" (true Knowledge);

Altogether to mean: "Sharing our Common Humanity in the 'All for One and One for All' One Love Embrace, true Knowledge and invincible Defence of our Mother Earth"!

We write this Glocal Declaration knowing the time that we are in: a time of ecofacism and a growing threat of Global North-provoked nuclear war. Faced with global demands of system change and communities compelled into resistance to redress the impacts on them of the world-wide climate and ecological crisis, the response of the dominant powers is militarisation to repress and iradicate all forms of resistance.

This declaration is as an assertion of our shared efforts in defending our indigenous and peoples’ rights, Mother Earth rights, and commitment to building our communities for a world of peace, justice and Planet Repairs. An assertion of our peoples’ right to an education capable of defending the best interests of our communities, especially... click here to read on and sign on yourself!

Decolonising Politics

DPOL Banner.png

We’re coming together to Decolonise Politics - in our communities, in our own thinking and glocally.

We are living with the consequences of the ‘colonisation of politics’ - the seizure of the public political sphere by a tiny elite and the alienation they’ve forced on the people.

The counter must be the Decolonisation of Politics at a personal, local, national and global level - taking power back into our hands and the hands of our communities - as a necessary act of reparations.



Community Lifelong Learning Study Action Groups (COLLSAGs) are the basic community educational spaces forming part of the Planet Repairs Action Learning Educational Revolution.

COLLSAGs are either Local COLLSAGs (community spaces of lifelong learning where PRALER is being popularised and supported) or Focused COLLSAGs (where lifelong learning about the role of specific tasks/areas to PRALER are engaged with).

 > Local COLLSAGs are typically regionally located and might develop or consist of various focuses or areas of interest.

> Focused COLLSAGs bring together those interested in specific issues or topics to commit to Planet Repairs development of such areas of interest.

All COLLSAGs must produce monthly reports of their work and should pass work for popularisation onto Praler News through the Internal Comms channels - to begin your involvement head to the 'Register Interest' form here!
