The International Tribunal on Reparations for Afrikan People (ITRAP) is an African people's court aimed at putting the U.S.A and European imperialism on trial for their crimes against African people during the slave trade, colonialism and neocolonialism, including: Genocide "Imagine being forced out of your homeland and cornered into the desert where you were left to die of thirst, or drink poisoned water. Imagine being told that you could never go home, if you attempted you would be shot... We have the right to bring the Germans to court." - Paramount chief Kauima Riruaku of the Herero people, Namibia Theft of Resources Africa's vast wealth of natural resources, including diamonds, gold, oil, timber and other minerals have been unjustly and heartlessly stolen from Africa to develop Europe. As a result, most Africans live on pennies a day and millions die of starvation. Neocolonialism Despite nominal independence granted to Africa in the 1960s, white power, terror, exploitation, and violence have continued through western backed neocolonial leaders.
