A South African-based engineer hired several times to help fix the problems with the Chinese-built Skeldon sugar factory, had raised alarming questions about the operations there but there is little evidence anything was done by management.

Engineer, Vishal Somai, who was instrumental in recommending that Skeldon don’t grind for the first crop this year because of unsafe boiler conditions at that Berbice factory, described the dumping as criminal.
It helped contribute to the new factory’s under-performance in its seven years.   Continue reading

Guyana – Rupununi-: Nappi, a potential tourist site

Nappi – A resident prepares farine

– named after man who escaped a tribal war in Brazil

Karu’ku and Nan’pi were the names of two men, that escaped tribal wars in Brazil, and entered the then Guiana some 100 years ago. They were among the first settlers who entered the forest, leaving forever their mark on the expansive savannahs of the Rupununi in Region Nine.

Karu’ku became Kanuku, bequeathing his name to the majestic range of mountains that divide the Rupununi savannahs in two. Nan’pi became Nappi, his name was given to the beautiful Macushi Indigenous community sitting in the hills just outside the shadow of the Kanuku mountains, in Central Rupununi, Region Nine.      Continue reading

Working together to sustain life on Planet Earth – By Rosaliene Bacchus

Three Worlds One Vision

I’m always heartened to come in contact with young people who are pro-active in changing humanity’s path towards a sustainable future for life on our planet. Here’s one such young woman, an undergraduate in Mississippi, who realizes that our success in achieving this aim depends upon collective action and connection with like-minded individuals.

As y’all know, I was selected as an Eco Rep Leader at my university. Yesterday was our official training for the year. We had our training at Strawberry Plains Audubon Center. I had only been there once and it was for their well-known Hummingbird Festival. The center is one of Mississippi’s finest yet lesser known treasures. With […]

The Ethics of the Tomato: Food Justice in America – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

The Ethics of the Tomato: Food Justice in America – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

The Garden of Eden would envy the American supermarket. Apples tempt the palate in endless varieties, asparagus sits on toast and broccoli is more than the director of an action movie. Bountiful reigns in America and the supermarket has come to signify the crest of conspicuous consumption. Supermarkets make a total of $5billion a year.

There is food from all corners of the planet. If they don’t have a particular item it can be imported for the right price. Stocked on the shelves are this morning’s entrée that include the beautiful red tomatoes, glossier than the plastic variety. But if those tomatoes could speak one would hear a tale of ethics, farmworker justice and manipulation of the system by big business. There is also genetic engineering to produce the ‘tasty tomatoes’ that can be detrimental to one’s health.    Continue reading

Guyana’s Sugar: Downsizing will save GuySuCo – commentary

DOWNSIZING WILL SAVE GUYSUCO

The View from Europe: Has Caribbean sugar a future?

Published on March 6, 2017 – By David Jessop

Unless the sugar industry in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) can develop in the coming months a coordinated and concerted plan of action, it is quite possible that in a few years’ time there will be little left of an industry that, for evil and good, has played a central role in the making of the Caribbean.

This is because this year will see two tsunami-like events occur, both of which threaten the survival of the industry in its present form.     Continue reading
