VIOLENCE IN AMERICA – By Hubert Williams


By  Hubert Williams

  Boston, Massachusetts, Oct 1, 2015 – – Every time some idiot (and it is always male) takes a weapon(s), which the US Constitution gives him the legal right to have, and murders people he has never met, this nation rises up in remorse, then settles back nicely to await the next mind-numbing mass shooting…. from Columbine to Virginia Technical College, to Newtown in Connecticut where 20 small children and 6 adults were slaughtered at a school, to Umpqua Community College in Oregan today where 9 people, mostly students, were shot dead, the bloody count continues. In the Virginia Tech campus tragedy, 37 people were killed and 17 wounded.

The possession of guns is a prerogative many Americans treasure. Under the 1791 provision of the Bill of Rights (the Second Amendment) each man (woman, and it appears some teenagers, too) has the right to keep and bear arms; and the right-wing ‘gun lobby’ is such an influential force in American politics that the killing frenzy will not cease in my lifetime, however much politicians like President Barack Obama plead for change. There are more guns than people in the United States.   Continue reading

Boston, Massachusetts, September 23,  2015  —  At every stage of its spurious claim to nearly two-thirds of Guyana’s territory – i.e. all land west of the Essequibo River – the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela has flexed its muscles and sought to intimidate the government and people of what it considers a weak, defenceless and irritating little neighbour.

Venezuela scored a bulls-eye in London in February 1966 when the British Guiana representatives, concerned that nothing should block the country’s path to independence, allowed themselves to be beguiled by the British in the resurrection (to the delight of the Venezuelans) of a boundary dispute that in 1899 had been determined by an international tribunal to have been fully, perfectly and finally settled.   Continue reading

Hinds’Sight – The Real State of Villages …something has to be done fast

Dr. David Hinds

Dr. David Hinds

October 4, 2015 –  By Dr. David Hinds

I HAD the privilege of visiting several African-Guyanese villages as part of the Cuffy 250 Committee’s community outreach. During those visits, we got an opportunity to talk to villagers about the state of their communities and their views on contemporary politics. We also got to see for ourselves the real state of the villages; and what we discovered was shocking, even for those of us who interfaced with those villages on a regular basis.

It became clear to us that the change of government removed the lid on a lot of pent-up frustrations. The communities had mastered the art of masking their hurt and neglect.   Continue reading
