In a 2000 'Memorandum on the Loot of Maqdala (Ethiopia)' to the Culture, Media and Sport Committee of the UK Parliament AFROMET urged the Committee to recommend the restitution to Ethiopia of the loot.
Instead of kowtowing to the whims, caprices and demands of those who hold Africa's cultural heritage in captivity, a sub-continent-wide strategy like AFROMET should be adopted to mount ceaseless pressure on those who continue to refuse (sometimes with a touch of arrogance and disrespect) even to contemplate the return of African people's "priceless portion" and "irreplaceable masterpieces" of their inheritance.
