Ministry re-established, new ministry named in minor cabinet shuffle

 The Ministry of the Presidency Thursday announced the re-establishment of the Ministry of Natural Resources and the establishment of a new one called the Ministry of Telecommunications.

Making the official announcement that Minister of Tourism, Catherine Hughes will now be named Minister for Public Telecommunications, while maintaining Ministerial responsibility for Tourism, President Granger said, “The reason is that after seven months, we detected a gap that there is no single spokesperson in the National Assembly, a Ministerial spokesperson, dealing with the digital economy [and] dealing with information technology. So we decided that it was necessary to have a Minister responsible for information and communication technology.”

Additionally, the Ministry of Governance and the Protection of the National Patrimony is being renamed the Ministry of Natural Resources.  Minister Raphael Trotman will now be named Minister of Natural Resources.    Continue reading

WE MUST EMBRACE ALL OF GUYANA – by Dave Martins

WE MUST EMBRACE ALL OF GUYANA by Dave Martins – Credits Stabroek News.

In a recent column I made a passing reference to a comment from Stabroek News writer Alan Fenty who had posed the question in his column whether “one could be Guyanese – spiritually and culturally – without being Indian, African, European or Chinese?” I answered Alan at the time saying the answer is “no, because we are made up of all these strands from other places, plus the Amerindian one, so to be truly Guyanese you have to see all those strands as part of you.” However, I felt at the time that his comment called for more elaboration, hence my effort today.

I would widen the comment above by saying that if we are truly Guyanese, and to be “one people” in fact and not in rhetoric, we should be abandoning these ethnic divisions we so rigidly practice and embracing instead the astounding variety of strong powerful expressions that make up the Guyana mosaic. We should see our diversity as values to be embraced with all the ingredients coming under one umbrella, the one called Guyana, instead of positions dividing us by origins.   Continue reading

Australia asylum seekers on the island of Nauru

By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Long before Nauru, Australia had stolen Generations. During the years 1970-1970 thousands of aboriginal children were forcibly removed from their families, ‘to be placed in boys and girls homes, foster families or missions. At the age of eighteen they were released into white society mostly scarred for life by their experiences.’

Why were the children stolen? It is argued that the idea was to assimilate the aboriginal population into the white society through a process of ‘breeding out.’ The logic was to make Australian society completely white in three generations. The policy backfired and it remains a dark chapter in Australian history.   Continue reading
