LIVERPOOL led the way

A proclamation by Liverpool City Council 1999:

"Liverpool City Council expresses its shame and remorse for the city's role in this trade in human misery. The City Council makes an unreserved apology for Liverpool's involvement in the slave trade and its continued effects on the city's black communities. The City Council hereby commits itself to work closely with all Liverpool's communities and partners and with the peoples of those countries which have carried the burden of the slave trade."

Will other cities follow suit? watch this space....
