"Reach back into history".

It is not history. Colonialism is NOW. Colonialism is our present. It never truly ended and it will not end until the UK or the US rights the wrong that is perpetrated against the Chagossians and permits their return.

Let us pray for David Cameron and for Barack Obama that their eyes may open to the vicious cruelty they and their predecesors are responsible for and that they may be moved to set it right.

Let us pray for the Queen of England, that she may denounce her own signing of the order-in-council that prevented the Chagossians return. That she may call upon her nation to do what is right before God.

Let us pray for the Chagossian people, a people of God and of faith who suffer in Mauritian slums because of the cruelty and inhumanity of our fallen rulers. Let us pray that they will soon have their land and their freedom back.
