  • The 10-Point Reparation Plan of the Caricom Reparations Commission (CRC). The Caricom Reparations Commission (CRC), Greater Georgetown, Guyana.

    [Editor's Note: "In 2013 Caribbean Heads of Governments established the Caricom Reparations Commission (CRC) with a mandate to prepare the case for reparatory justice for the regionís indigenous and African descendant communities who are the victims of Crimes against Humanity (CAH) in the forms of genocide, slavery, slave trading, and racial apartheid.
    This document, prepared by the CRC, proposes the delivery of this mandate within the formulation of the Caricom Reparations Justice Program (CRJP). The CRC asserts that victims and descendants of these CAH have a legal right to reparatory justice, and that those who committed these crimes, and who have been enriched by the proceeds of these crimes, have a reparatory case to answer." (Caricom Reparations Commission)
    The ten-point plan proposed by the CRC was unanimously approved at a meeting of CARICOM Nations on 11 March 2014 and is being used as the basis for discussions on reparations.]
