Apartheid Reparations

Democracy Now! in New York City reports last week on the historical case in a New York City court by black victims of white minority rule in South Africa (not everyone bought the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s line), against several international corporations accused of aiding the Apartheid regime. The victims’ lawyers are seeking up to $400 billion in compensation. The South African government and elite opinion are opposed to the case going ahead. The companies include Daimler AG, General Motors, Ford Motor Company and IBM. “They are accused in a class-action lawsuit of complicity in human rights abuses during the years they did business in apartheid South Africa.”

  1. The only people that are going to get rich here are people like me and US attorneys. Trust me, those that are deemed the "black victims" will always draw the short end of the straw. Their ignorance is being abused to make other people money, which is nothing less than that which the likes of Ford, GM et al did during the "troubles". Its just abuse with another name.
