In full support of the requests made by the lecturers in Durban on racism, RAEL, leader of the Raelian Movement which counts a large number of members in African countries, has declared to adamantly champion payments of large financial compensations by countries that have benefited from slavery to the victim’s descendants.
He said: “Crimes against humanity are known to be very difficult to prescribe. In this case, the crimes of those who have killed hundreds of thousands of Africans and doomed to slavery millions of others, and which rank as crimes against humanity, must find the States guilty of these crimes, judged and condemned to consequently pay damages to the victim’s descendants.It is aberrant for Germany to continue to pay damages to the descendants of the Jews victims of Nazism and for Africans not to have the same rights. The countries that have made their fortunes upon this despicable act, known as slavery, have a moral obligation to pay damages to the victim’s descendants.
The huge fortunes that have been amassed upon this abominable trafficking should be returned in full to the victim’s descendants plus a sizeable compensation not only from individuals but also from the States that have benefited from it. The families that have built their empires on cotton, coffee, sugar, etc.., during the slavery era should have their goods seized in their entirety and redistributed to African Americans, the descendants of slaves, in addition to the total amounts of money that governments have cashed in, thanks to the enormous taxes on profits made from slavery, as well as interests.
African Americans should, in fact, have at least half of the U.S. goods redistributed to them – if real justice existed – because they have contributed to building this country more than anyone else instead of representing 70% of the jails population (which is over 6.5 millions) because they live in poverty…”
