Reparations

From Haiti, Germany, Japan, Iraq to Iceland.
In Africa they support us and say that we are refusing to turn up for our own funeral. Some of us predict that we are becoming the next Haiti, not because of the current tragedy but because of the Revolution(1791–1803) and resulting reparations(1825). 75 years later they where sill paying 80% of their national income to predatory creditors, this finally ended in 1947, 122 years later. The first step is always to establish a liability (which is easy for the powerful) and then the rest is history.

War reparations
The Haitian Revolution (1791–1803)
“La dette de l’independance”
Human rights must be at the core of relief efforts and the reconstruction of Haiti
