Great daughter of Africa
There is a great saying by my late father that I often quote to my friends about my family-" IT IS A TIGER THAT GIVES BIRTH TO A TIGER" . You are the true daughter of your father - a great Pan Africanist . Your Uncle was one of the great historical Pan Africanists - George Padmore .Your work is a reflection of your pedigree . You come from a breed of African freedom fighters and liberators who love our race. You are a great pride to our race and Africa. What you wrote about Reparation is a masterpiece of a great thinker . It is no surprise that your family is a part of our march to freedom ,in which Marcus Garvey is leading the fight carrying the African flag in front ; against our Oppressors who enslaved us as we sing our freedom songs to a great and free Africa . Unity and Freedom will be written in that flag. We shall unite very soon as long as there are leaders like you in our new march to freedom.
I had the pleasure of meeting the late Prof John Henrick Clarke when he came to London in his summer lecture tours. The Reparation claim must be weighed and compared to what was paid to the Jews who lost 6 millioghn lives in the the Holocaust .We lost 120 million lives in the evil passage. The late Ambassador Dudley Thompson was highly regarded by A frican leaders and the African Union .Kathy , I say this to you- "YOU HAVE CLASS" .What can I say of a great Lady who is giving her all on behalf of Africa and our race.
Africa belongs to ALL AFRICANS.I am a GARVEYITE . The continent belongs to all Africans from Africa and the DIASPORA .It is our home. The Africans in the diaspora are all members of our families. There was no family in Africa that did not suffer from enslavement of our race . We (Africans) as a People are proud of our extended family culture .Our mission must be the UNITY of all our People . A United People will be respected-look at the Chinese .The Europeans laughed at the Chinese in the past. Who is the pretty boy now !!!
All Africans love you and thank you a million times for your work. Have a great day.
Yours in the struggle for African freedom
NB: Forgive any errors as I did not read over what I have written as one of my phones is ringing without stopping .It is not near my computer .Someone wants to talk to me with some urgent personal information .

BEFORE OUR BROTHER DUDLEY THOMPSON - WENT TO SEE HIS ANCESTORS I HAVE TRAVELED fWITH HIM TO CONFERENCES PERTAINING TO OUR LIBERATION.
Today the struggle is still goin on. Last month I was consulted by phone by Dr. Osakwe Osifo, a PanAfricanist in London who is still on the battlefield. Seek 'The Unity of Africa"
MY FEELING IS THIS:
We need to create a Gobal Reparation Commission:
Reparation will not be possible – unless our government takes certain initiavates.
1st step to take is :
FIND OUT WHICH AFRICAN COUNTY IS PREPARE TO WELCOME THE LOST FLOCK.
THE EMPEROR OF ETHIOPA – SHOWED HIS WILLINGNESS – BY GRANTING LAND TO Jamaican. Under the EWF umbrella.
2nd Step is
To - nominate people as representatives to discuss with the AFRICAN GOVERNMENT – THE NECESSARY PREPARATION.
IF AN AFRICAN GOVERNMENT AGREES – TO PERMIT –IMMIGRATION –THEY MAY IMPOSE TEST ON THE IMMIGRATION.
SETTLEMENT OF IMMIGRANT COST- MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. (Preparing land, opening roads, building houses, water and light supplies and industrial capital)
Congress endorses the claim that slavery, the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, the Arab slave trade, genocide and apartheid were always crimes against humanity and therefore subject to reparative justice
Congress endorses the establishment of the Caricom Reparations Commission and calls upon it to work with other similar commissions already established, in advancing the Global reparations process
All African , Countries, States, Regional and bodies must move immediately to legislate for the right of reparations, returning all African descendents who would like , settlement and dual citizenship in Africa . Those Africans- in the diaspora who have already returned as well as their stateless children.
The major problems and challenges facing the African World is injuries resulting from the crimes of slavery.
We need to profile, document and erect monuments in all areas throughout the continent where slavery, slave embarkation stations and prisons are located. Holocaust memorial sites are used today by some countries as military and political buildings.
We need to memorialize our heroes and heroines including those criminalized by enslavers and demand that African human remains housed in museums around the world be returned to their homelands.
