Tomorrow is an important meeting for the Hawaiian Sovereignty movement. One important topic for the participants revolves around reparations by the U.S. for the overthrow of the kingdom and theft of land.
While there have been war reparations paid out before by various nations, are there instances of any decolonization reparations paid ? (French ? Brits ? Portuguese ? etc…) Mere social, immigration benefits apparently wouldn’t count.
