Education & Action for Transformative Reparations & Planet Repairs
APPG For Afrikan Reparations (APPGAR)
The M.E.T shares the running of the secretariat for the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Afrikan Reparations (APPGAR), chaired by Bell Ribeiro-Addy, MP.
Reparations must more fully address the restoration of sovereignty and self-determination as well as the redistribution of wealth, resources, power and socio-economic harms and grievances on the collective level, rather than only rectification of unjust harms and civil/political rights violations on the individual level.
Transformative reparations emphasise glocal grassroots agency and dignity restoration as well as resources; encourage ground-up leadership and participation in policy and decision-making; address root causes and manifestations of the Maangamizi; and challenge unequal and intersecting power relationships as well as structures of domination and exclusion.
Transformative reparations can therefore contribute to enabling the transformation of groups, communities, and societies out of intergenerational cycles of dispossession, coloniality, impoverishment, discrimination, and exclusion.
Planet Repairs refers to: 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, the 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.
