REPARATIONS POSITION STATEMENT
The Peoples Organization for Progress (POP) believes that the descendents of African enslaved in the United States and other parts of the western hemisphere have a legitimate claim to reparations for the cruelty and super exploitation that our ancestors suffered during centuries of slavery and 150 years of racist oppression and discrimination which followed emancipation.
We demand compensation to African Americans for the labor that millions of our ancestors were forced to give during the period of their enslavement, and the suffering and loss we have had to endure for generations due to its legacy. We demand that the United States recognize our legitimate claim to reparations. We demand that the process of compensation begin now!
