Last week I was interviewed alongside Laura Trevelyan (co-founder, Heirs of Slavery) by Seun Matiluko from Politics Home, on the topic of Remorse, Roots and Reparations.
During our discussion I emphasised the need for reparatory justice to address historical wrongs. I told Politics Home:
“Reparations go beyond financial compensation; they are about acknowledging the harm inflicted and taking meaningful action to set things right…
This is an issue that isn’t going to go away. It’s an issue that everyone from David Lammy to Lisa Nandy is going to confront when they go around the world… I think this is something that any progressive potential government would want to engage with and embrace, and I will be doing my part to ensure they do.”
