Official Communication and Press Release of Co-Organisers of the 1st Mosiah Pan-Afrikan Reparations
We note the historical importance of this year's Afrikan Emancipation Day 1st Mosiah PARRG 2023, using the day to amplify news from the frontlines of our Pan-Afrikan Liberation Struggle. We grounded in active listening to the voices of the revolutionary youthful leadership from Burkina Faso, giving vision to a new and sovereign Afrika throughout Western Afrika in Mali and Niger, as well as Southern Afrika and the emerging collaborations of Eritrea and Ethiopia and the emergence of Afrikan leadership for rematriation in Colombia, Abya Yala. This is what we see and mean to be Pan- Afrikan Reparations for Global Justice: the restitution of our sovereignty, our right to national self-determination, our community and peoples' self-repair, and the continuation of our Ancestral Rebellion in defence of life for generations born and unborn. The reparations freedom-fight is pushing forward in the face of threats from Western Imperialism, criminal corporate media, and reactionary violence. From Britain, we see the ongoing escalation of violence from NATO, including state institutions recruiting from within our own communities, and worsening Afrikan Diaspora Capture and miseducation. We refuse the increasing counterinsurgent attempts by neo-colonial state misleaders in CARICOM and the AU to capture the reparations movement and commit ancestral treason as they deny the necessary grassroots agency, self-determination and participation of Afrikan communities in anti-colonial resistance.
We stand in support of the Joint Communique #001 of the Burkina Faso and Mali Revolutionary Governments who represent the legitimate voices and concerns of the people, and Afrikans in communities of resistance worldwide.
We refuse and will organise in solidarity for any attempts made against the right to reparations and remedies being exercised by those taking back their Afrikan right to self- determination, sovereignty and Pan-Afrikan unity. We commit ourselves to a Repaired Afrika, which we refer to as Maatubuntuman, in a Repaired World, which we refer to as Ubuntudunia, which requires the Indigenous and colonised masses of Afrikans and all other Peoples of the world to restore our relationship with our lands, resources and Mother Earth.
The flags and symbols as well as representatives of the ongoing revolutionary push and demands for reparations in Niger, Mali, Burkina Faso, the Ovaherero and Nama Indigenous Nations, the Gbetowo Indigenous Nation, Sovereign Maroons, Biafra, and more including those displaced within the UK, were raised high in our glocal commitment to the struggle for the Afrikan right to self-determination, sovereignty, and Planet Repairs (the interconnection between cognitive, reparatory and environmental justice). Afrikan Emancipation Day activities throughout the Caribbean such as in Belize, also highlight the internationalist commitment to Pan-Afrikan Reparations and Rematriation (the restoration of our spiritual, material, and cultural connection to our Motherland) for Afrikan people worldwide.
We extend our solidarity to: Pro-Nkrumah Unity Movement (Ghana) Revolutionary Movements of Niger, Burkina Faso, and Mali. Ovaherero Genocide Foundation (OGF) and Ovaherero Traditional Authority (OTA) MAATUBUNTUMITAWO-GAFRIC Quilombo in the UK represented by Afro_ID Sovereign Maroon Council Independent People of Biafra Gbetowohome – Ablodeduko;
