The Lies We Tell Ourselves – By Rosaliene Bacchus

Three Worlds One Vision

Bombed-out Street in Aleppo - Syria

On Thursday night, April 3rd, our president unilaterally and without congressional approval launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles on a Syrian airbase, the alleged site of a chemical attack that targeted innocent civilians. The dust had not yet settled. No United Nations investigation of the heinous crime was conducted to determine the type of chemical weapons used and the perpetrators. But we – the defenders of democracy, peace, freedom, and humanitarianism – know, beyond all doubt, that Syria’s brutal dictator was responsible.

After killing innocent children and beautiful babies, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had to be sent a strong message. Military power is strength. Money is no problem.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR: – Dr. Juliet Emanuel, March Editor

CELEBRATING GUYANESE WOMEN – IN MUSIC – IN INDUSTRY – IN POLITICS – IN AVIATION

In their March 2017 version of the newsmagazine the Board and members of Guyana Cultural Association of New York, Inc. invite you to a celebration of the accomplishments of Guyanese women.

They range in experience from the narrow to the global but all are respected for the persistence and grit with which they have pursued their lives of grace. We do not need the now traditional month dedicated to women across the world. We acknowledge our women all the time. Therefore, while sad about her passing, we know that the praise heaped on Carmen Enid Jarvis in October, 2016 was done in good time.      Continue reading

How Slavery Built American Universities – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

How Slavery Built American Universities

By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

You are black and a freshman at Harvard University. You consider yourself privileged to be there. Harvard is after all a place of prestige and excellence and you worked hard to win a place. You are impressed that some of your law professors are also black. Then the unthinkable happened and your dreams are shattered. There is a crowd outside Wasserstein Hall and to your disgust you see that the portraits of black professors are defaced.

You are brought to tears. How could this happen in America? Why is there so much hate and racism and bigotry on campus, and of all places at Harvard? One upset student spoke to the Washington Times and said, ‘ I wasn’t surprised. This is part and parcel of what is happening here at Harvard and also at other institutions across the country.’   Continue reading

Washington’s False Flag: Chemical Weapons Attack pretext for expanded war – commentary

Washington’s False Flag: United Nations Confirmed that US Supported Syrian “Rebels” Were Using Chemical Weapons

Both Trump and Obama have blood on their hands. The Chemical Weapons Attack is being used as a “False Flag”, a pretext and a justification to wage an illegal war of aggression. 

The United Nations in a 2013 report confirms that Syrian opposition “rebels” (supported by Washington)“may have used chemical weapons against [Syrian] government forces.”

The UN report refutes Washington’s allegations that the government of Bashar al Assad was using chemical weapons against his own people.

What the UN mission findings confirm is that the US sponsored opposition “rebels” largely composed of Al Qaeda affiliated groups, financed and supported by the Western military alliance were responsible for these 2013 chemical weapons attacks.       Continue reading

Guyana Travel Tax billed into ticket – By Tangerine Clarke

Guyana Travel Tax billed into ticket

During a departure procedure on April 2, 2017, at Cheddi Jagan International Airport in Guyana, a ticket agent told this reporter, that a departure tax is no longer payable at check-in, he said the fee is now billed into the airline ticket at the time of purchase.

However, Jackie Bailey, a fellow passenger on the same flight, was asked to pay Guy $6,000 — Guy $2,500 as Security Tax, and Guy $3500 Travel tax, because her ticket, was purchased before Feb. 1, when the new measure took effect.

Bailey told this reporter, she was asked to pay the fee at the ticket counter and was later shocked when she learned that many other passengers did not have to pay the same fee, a faux pas by the airline who should inform passengers about the new measure that took effect on Feb. 1, 2017.  Continue reading
