Resolutions of the First Pan African Colloquium held at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, January 13-15, 2016
After three days of deliberations and considering questions of the heroes and heroines of the Pan African world, the Colloquium passed three resolutions

1. Commission of Inquiry into the death of Walter Rodney - Time to complete work
The Colloquium calls upon the Government of Guyana to give the Commission of Inquiry into the unnatural death of Walter Rodney the time, space and resources to successfully complete the work of the Commission. Walter Rodney was one of the leading Pan African thinkers and activist of the last century. He died from an explosive device on June 13, 1980. The Global Pan African community has been following with interest the work of the Commission of Inquiry. As members of the community concerned with peace and justice, we are of the view that the ability of the Commission of Inquiry to issue comprehensive findings offers the most complete opportunity for an independent, judicial statement of truth on the death of Dr. Walter Rodney. The Pan African Colloquium meeting in Barbados supports the request of Sir Richard Cheltenham for the necessary time to complete the work of the Commission of Inquiry. As a global justice grouping, with deep connections to struggles for justice internationally, we want President Granger to understand that the question of the untimely death of Walter Rodney remains a matter of concern not only for the peoples of Guyana and the Caribbean, but for all of the Global African family. We support the calls of the Justice for Walter Rodney Committee and the widow of Walter Rodney, Dr. Patricia Rodney, and we agree with their observation that the analysis, conclusions and findings of the Commission on the evidence as presented in the hearings will serve to bring Guyana closer to redemption and reconciliation.
