The Nauru Files – Australia’s Other Stolen Generation – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

The Nauru Files – Australia’s Other Stolen Generation

Nauri

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

CARICOM – THE DEBT TRAP – commentary

THE DEBT TRAP

Opinion - commentary -analysisAug 21, 2016 Editorial, Kaieteur News

 Guyana’s small but encouraging success in its attempts to reduce the stranglehold of debt on the economy is proof that the country and its CARICOM counterparts continue to be among the most indebted countries in the world. And while none of these countries are very wealthy, based on North American and European standards, they are not overly poor either and there is hardly any starvation among their populations.

Guyana’s debt, which is approximately US$1.65billion continues to be a major impediment to economic growth and human and sustainable development. It has deprived the government of the ability to use monetary policy to promote growth and provide the path for improved lives. It has become obvious to the authorities that everything has to be done to reduce the debt, because it is economically unwise for the nation to be burdened by such a huge liability.

Bribery Has Become The Norm – By Annan Boodram

Guyana: Bribery Has Become The Norm –  By Annan Boodram

Opinion - commentary -analysisA young man, whose truck does almost daily trips from the Corentyne to Georgetown, was stopped by a policeman on the approaches to the Berbice River bridge, and cited for having a rider in the cab without a seat belt – there were three riders there but only two wore seat belts. So he had to bribe  – $5,000 each on days one, two and three.

On the fourth day, he handed his cell phone to one of the riders and told him to hold the phone so it was visible to young policeman. Then he went up to the policeman and said, “You see that cell phone? I have pictures of you receiving money from me for the past three days. If you ever stop this truck again I will send those photos to newspapers and to your superiors.” That particular policeman never again stopped his truck again but was seen stopping other vehicles along the same stretch of road.   Continue reading
