African Emancipation Day Reparations March 2016

If you were ever unsure about what the reparations movement is all about, or its relevancy to the Black community today, here’s a great place to start.

August (Mosiah) 1st 2016 – This is more than just a march, it is a movement and we are repairing.   

It was a day when the community came out in their thousands to mobilise.
Not even the typical British weather could dampen our spirits and energy, as we marched from Windrush Square to Parliament Square…

The march in itself WILL NOT get us reparations (compensation), however, what it has the ability to do is help us to meet, network, engage with one another and heal together (repair)

Each one teach one!
