Recent prison murder in Guyana — Was duty of care exercised – By Yvonne Sam

Recent prison murder in Guyana — Was duty of care exercised

By Yvonne Sam

Dear Editor,

Have the prisoners taken charge and become their own judge, jury and executioners?

Permit me to pen my thoughts before they run totally amok. Following the recent news article of the deadly prison attack on the Jagmohan brothers (news item here) while incarcerated in the New Amsterdam Prison, I have been forced to rethink even the basic of basics -“What are prisons for?  The idea that it is a place to treat, reform and rehabilitate now appears obsolete or unattainable when it comes to the prison system in Guyana.  In fact, it is apparent that the prisons and prison system are there solely to serve the courts. Point finale!   Continue reading

Cedric Vernon Nunes: A Champion of Education! – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Cedric Vernon Nunes became Guyana’s Minister of Education in 1961. We followed his progress as best as we could from Sookoo Yard. No one read anything in the Yard. The single radio that was owned by Sookoo was set for two programs only: ‘Indian Hour’ and ‘Creole Meche Meche.’

In 1962, Dr. Cheddi Jagan wanted to set up the University of Guyana in a hurry and C.V. Nunes was the person that was piloting the project. It was a lofty goal but I had little interest in it. They moved me from Vergenoegen to Philadelphia Scots School. My most traumatic time was the transition from slate to exercise books. I could not hold a pencil and write in lines nor could I ‘dip and write’ from the inkwell. I missed the freedom of the slate with the lily as the eraser.

Victories against Trump are Mounting. Here’s How we Deal the Final Blow

Victories against Trump are Mounting. Here’s How we Deal the Final Blow

President Donald Trump

The judiciary, legislative and media have all helped keep Trump in check. But it’s the residents of the United States whose response will matter most in the end

Rebecca Solnit | The Guardian UK

In this moment, populist intervention is everything, not as hate and attack but as an expression of popular will and power. Or as love, since we defend what we love. It is an extraordinary moment, an all-hands-on-deck emergency in which new groups and coalitions are emerging along with unforeseen capacities in many people who didn’t previously think they were activists. It is saturated with possibility, as well as with danger.   Continue reading

America – Denial on trial – By Yvonne Sam

America – Denial on trial

By Yvonne Sam

The recent shooting in Alexandria, Virginia of Republican members of Congress and others while playing baseball, should be viewed as only a part of the problem that currently ails the great nation.  This fact may not be aptly stated or politically correct but America—The land of the Free and the Home of the Brave is on the brink of political anarchy.

Yes, the continued spewing of vitriolic rhetoric, the undying quest and ceaseless prayers to have the President removed from Office has reached fruition- giving birth to bloodshed. Basically, America is raising her own genre of terrorists.    Continue reading
