Colonialism Reparation is part of the movement for the condemnation, the reconciliation, the apologies and the compensation for colonialism. It was conceived in 2008 by a volunteer of the Italian association "Battito solidale" which, thanks to his frequent journeys to Guinea and Senegal, had the opportunity to realize which disastrous impact the colonialism still had in the daily life of billions of people and how in many nations the current situation is merely its camouflaged continuation.
Colonialism Reparation promotes, supports and spreads non-violent activities aimed to create awareness of the current world situation and thereby to encourage the achievement of its objective
- that the colonizing nations condemn their colonial past recognizing it as a crime against humanity and that the colonized nations exert pressure to make it happen
- that the colonizing nations reconcile with their past, permanently distancing themselves from it by officially apologizing the colonized nations
- that the colonizing nations compensate the colonized nations for the atrocities and abuses committed thus allowing an improvement in their socio-economic conditions.
The contribution of every person who recognizes the importance of this activity to the creation of a climate of friendship and cooperation between peoples is necessary and appreciated. This contribution will create an extremely positive precedent in international relations as well, promoting the supremacy of the "force of law" on the "law of force".
