No to the recolonization of Libya
Colonialism Reparation opposes to the recolonization of Libya by western powers.
The massive bombing campaign coordinated by NATO has largely exceeded the mandate established by resolution 1973 of the UN Security Council and has influenced in a decisive way the Libyan civil war toward a favorable outcome for the rebels, linked to the former colonial powers.
Italy, then, with its involvement in the bombings, founds itself in a doubly illegal situation, since it is also bound to Libya by the Treaty of Friendship, Partnership and Cooperation which provides for a non-aggression pact in addition to reparations for the colonial past.
If, as stated by the French President on September 1 2011 at the closing of the “Conference in support of new Lybia”, "interventions in Ivory Coast and Libya are the beginning of a policy that, with the authorisation of the Un, puts the military force in the service of the protection of the peoples that are likely to be martyred by their leaders", Colonialism Reparation hopes that the UN Security Council will no longer allows such interventions.
Only by encouraging the supremacy of the 'force of law" on the "law of force" the protection of peoples will be real and not simply an excuse for the protection of private interests.

Colonialism reparation is an international movement for the acknowledgement, the reconciliation, the apologies and the reparations of colonialism. It develops nonviolent activities at a personal and institutional level to create awareness of the situation and to make sure that the colonizing nations which have given rise to situations of inhumane injustice and suffering condemn their colonial actions recognizing their behavior as criminal, they reconcile with their past, apologize and finally pay reparations to the colonized countries.
