first_img“We in Trinidad and Tobago must view the call for reparations in the context of the duty we owe to our forefathers. They made the ultimate sacrifice. Their contribution to our present well-being must be recognized in a world which now accepts that compensation and reparation are prerequisites in the dispensation of justice.” Carmona said.He recalled that the United Nations in 2007, declared March 25 as the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade. President Carmona made the call in a message to mark Emancipation Day, August 1. Carmona said Trinidad and Tobago should support the efforts of Caribbean Community (CARICOM) governments in seeking reparation for the Atlantic slave trade. In his message the president quoted the chairman of the CARICOM Reparations Commission and Vice-Chancellor of the University of the West indies (UWI), Sir Hilary Beckles. Beckles formerly noted that the governments of Great Britain and Europe “ were the beneficiaries of enrichment from the enslavement of African people. They committed genocide of indigenous communities and deceptive breach of contract and trust in respect of East Indians and other Asians brought to the plantations under indenture. Great Britain and have a case to answer in respect of reparatory justice.” The President of Trinidad and Tobago, Antony Carmona, has called on the twin island republic to join the Caribbean effort to get Europe to pay reparation to the descendants of African slaves. “As a former judge and a firm believer in reparatory justice, I am of the view that as we celebrate Emancipation Day 2017, we must examine affirmatively the case for reparations as adopted by CARICOM Governments and advocated by Sir Hilary and other spokespersons.last_img read more

first_imgNew York Liberty rookie Sabrina Ionescu found out WNBA opponents are unwilling to give her a honeymoon period in the league, instead swarming her with defensive attention from the get-go.Ionescu struggled to handle the Seattle Storm’s aggressive approach in an 87-71 debut loss, shooting 4-of-17 from the floor with four turnovers. She missed all eight of her 3-point attempts. Ionescu became a national star at Oregon who carried more hype than almost any other collegiate women’s basketball player before her. She became the first-ever NCAA player to record at least 2,000 points, 1,000 assists, and 1,000 rebounds in a career. Many expected her to cap her decorated career in Eugene with a national championship — an opportunity taken from her by the COVID-19 pandemic.The Liberty are optimistic Ionescu can accelerate their rebuild and vault them from bottom-dwelling Eastern Conference nobody to playoff contender. They went 10-24 last year and 7-27 in 2018. In Saturday’s loss, though, New York guard Kia Nurse went down with a sprained ankle. The severity of the injury is not yet known. Still, the No. 1 overall pick from Oregon stuffed the box score as she so often did in college and demonstrated her inclination to be her team’s top offensive option. She finished the contest with 12 points, six boards and four assists.Here’s Ionescu’s first bucket as a pro:First career @WNBA bucket for @sabrina_i20 in the books! pic.twitter.com/P4y5myc1ku— New York Liberty (@nyliberty) July 25, 2020MORE: Ionescu formed tight bond with Kobe Bryantlast_img read more
