Asserting that the U.S. is "the paradigmatic example of an irremediably racist state in international relations today," international legal authority Francis Boyle told a Chicago conference that the trauma endured by African-Americans brought here in chains has caused them to suffer "Intergenerational post-traumatic stress disorder (P.T.S.D.)."
Boyle told the IHRAAM Conference on "Civil Rights, Human Rights, & Self-Determination" April 20th at East-West University, Chicago, that it is customary in international law to pay such reparations but that an indictment he filed in 1992 with the U.S. Attorney in San Francisco and the U.S. Attorney General against the U.S. has gone unanswered.
Instead, he received a letter dated Feb. 5, 1993, from the Justice Department that said, "If you, or the Tribunal, have any evidence of the violation of federal criminal law, we ask that you provide that information to your local office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation."
Boyle filed that indictment as an outcome of his successful pleading before the International Tribunal of Indigenous Peoples and Oppressed Nations in the U.S.A. initiated by the American Indian Movement and others.
IHRRAM is an acronym for the International Human Rights Association of American Minorities and is a non-governmental organization recognized by the United Nations. It was founded in 1985 at The Hague to help unrepresented people gain access to international law and its enforcement mechanisms.
The San Francisco Tribunal, composed of seven distinguished international jurists, ordered the U.S. to "cease and desist from the commission of the crimes" of which it was found guilty.
Boyle told the Chicago conference the U.S. has "illegally refused to apply the United Nations Decolonization Resolution of 1960 to the New Afrikan (Afro-American)People and to the Territories they principally inhabit."
Boyle, a professor of international law at the University of Illinois, Champaign, has served as counsel to Bosnia and Herzegovina and to the Provisional Government of the State of Palestine. He is the author of numerous books on the subject, including "Biowarfare and Terrorism"(Clarity).#
