You should definitely hire me. Not only am I highly capable, beyond pretty funny, and driven to get it done better every day, but I’m also broke. That means I’ll keep doing what you ask of me so I can pay off the massive pile of student loans that I’ll have for the next ten years. Also, I will smile while doing it.
Fourteen Caribbean nations have resolved to sue their former colonizers — Britain, France and the Netherlands — for lingering harms that they attribute to the slave trade.
The AP reports that the leaders of the Caribbean Community, a regional consortium, adopted a 10-point plan that would seek an official apology, a cancelation of debts and assistance for cultural and educational institutions.
The regional consortium has hired British human rights firm Leigh Day to pursue the case. Leigh Day previously secured $21.5 million for Kenyans who were tortured under Britain’s colonial era government.
