It was created by Cyril Bryan, as a project to help Guyanese in the Diaspora to be connected to some of the positive news from Guyana, as well as to the work being done by Guyanese organisations around the world.   Blog entries are inserted regularly and there was also a monthly newsletter, emailed to thousands of Guyanese around the world.

Military Escalations in Syria. Mistakes and Catastrophe? Towards a More Pronounced Conflagration?

Military Escalations in Syria. Mistakes and Catastrophe? Towards a More Pronounced Conflagration?

By Dr. Binoy Kampmark – Global Research, June 23, 2017

To become enmeshed in a war of incalculable variables; to be at bloody bruised loggerheads – this is the Syrian nightmare, where there are more punters than odds. Savagely, Syria as a state is being ravaged and mauled to the point of non-recognition. It is now a mere terrain for heavily armed bullies, a smoky crusted ruin of dust and cosmic ruin, its populace fleeing when it can, shielding itself when it must, and hoping for the best.

The great power play never assumes that small states matter. They supply the necessary show for the big game, the theatre set for the show down in which the small scatter whilst the big boys level the punches. In history, the bully is insentient, and normally stumbles into mistakes and catastrophe.    Continue reading

Time for a Game Change In America— Out with the Protests & Marches – By Yvonne Sam

Time for a Game Change In America— Out with the Protests & Marches

By Yvonne Sam

Law enforcement continues the inordinate use of lethal force against people of color. A cure is urgently needed, not a diagnosis.

History has proven to be the most astute educator.   It is now absolutely clear that the American justice system will give blacks as much justice as a wolf would give to a flock of sheep.  Like the wolf, the system has completely devoured Blacks. Then again, what do Blacks expect now if they were not even considered by the initial designers of America’s system of jurisprudence?    Continue reading
