Apologising for slavery is not enough to heal the wounds of the oppressed


The Dutch state has formally apologised for its role in enslaving people and supporting the slave trade, as well as the detrimental impact it has had on past, present and future generations. The Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte said for centuries, the Dutch and its representatives facilitated, stimulated, preserved and profited on the exploitation of innocent people. However, the apology has not been widely accepted, with many saying it’s too late to apologise for the inhumane treatment and outright abuse of innocent people.
