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.

Guyana: THE FALLING DOLLAR – commentary

Guyana: THE FALLING DOLLAR

Something is terribly wrong in Guyana. The value of the currency has plunged. But then again, this has been a trend dating back more than four decades. This is happening because we remain primary producers even as the world makes huge profits from primary products and return the refined product to the producers of the primary products.

It is critically important to understand precisely what makes the economy tick, and how different components must work with each other to produce positive outcomes. The Finance Minister was crucial to the budget presentations during the previous administration. When the situation worsened he was there when the then President Bharrat Jagdeo opted to close two sugar estates—at LBI and at Diamond.  Continue reading

Queens Rally Calls For Humane Immigration Policy – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Queens Rally Calls For Humane Immigration Policy

Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Remembering Peter Tosh and the 1960 Sharpeville Massacre – By Ajamu Nangwaya

Resistance against South African Apartheid, Racism and Settler-Colonialism: Remembering Peter Tosh and the 1960 Sharpeville Massacre

 
la-marche-pour-l-egalite-et-contre-le-racismeMarch 21 was the 57th anniversary of the Sharpeville Massacre that was carried out by the South African apartheid regime against protesting Africans in 1960. This protest was organized by the liberation organization the Pan Africanist Congress (PAC). It targeted the pass law of the settler-colonial regime that regulated the movement and residential pattern of the indigenous Africans. International opinion was so outraged by the murderous behaviour of the apartheid system that the United Nations’ General Assembly was inspired to declare March 21 the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (IDERD).     Continue reading
