Antigua and Barbuda is continuing to use every opportunity to advocate for reparatory justice in various international fora.

At Tuesday’s Community of Latin America and Caribbean Countries (CELAC) summit in Argentina, Foreign Minister, E. P. Chet Greene addressed of the need for Reparatory Justice to establish a moral, ethical and legal case for the payment of reparations by governments of former colonial powers and to the nations and people of the Caribbean Community for the crime against Humanity of Native Genocide, the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and the racially driven chattel slavery system.

“It is against this background that we endorsed the Regional Launch of the International Decade of Indigenous Languages 2022-2032, designed to carry on efforts to continue working for the promotion and protection of the rights of indigenous peoples in Latin America and the Caribbean,” Greene said in his remarks.

Speaking of the impact of the pandemic on regional economies, Greene added that it is important that CELAC continues to coordinate efforts regionally and extra-regionally to manage the socioeconomic fall-out of the pandemic to build a Latin American and Caribbean region that is more secure, resilient and sustainable.
