A Partnership for National Unity plus Alliance for Change (APNU+AFC)’s Dr. Rupert Roopnaraine and Khemraj Ramjattan have both condemned the alarming rate at which concessions are being handed to BaiShanLin.

They say that this is being done at the expense of local businessmen. They also point to the company’s failure to honour its commitments to provide Guyanese employment.

These issues recently came to the fore with the revelations of the large tax concessions granted to the Chinese-owned company. BaiShanLin has been under scrutiny for its large scale extraction and export of Guyana’s timber using a primarily Chinese workforce.

Fed up of waiting 23 years for the incumbent administration to provide quality basic services, many residents of the gold mining township of Bartica are prepared to give the opposition a chance to run Guyana’s affair.

In turn, the opposition coalition of A Partnership for National Unity+ Alliance For Change (APNU+AFC) is promising better health care, reliable electricity, proper roads, a modern ferry stelling, improved security, proper garbage collection and disposal and incentives for the gold mining sector.

Bartica television producer and broadcaster, Edward Persaud, who was previously associated with the incumbent People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPPC), sent a recorded endorsement that was played and greeted with excitement by attendees. “I am going to tell you now that for you to see that change, it is time for that change and you have the power in your hands in the form of that ballot to place your X next to the boxes for the APNU+AFC come the 11th May. It’s time Bartica,” he said.  Continue reading

The new Russian presence in the Caribbean – By David Jessop – Commentary

 The new Russian presence in the Caribbean – The View from Europe: 
Published on March 28, 2015  –  By David Jessop – Commentary
Over the last five years Russian interest in the Caribbean has been growing steadily; so that today Moscow’s diplomatic profile and its economic presence in a number of Caribbean nations is now stronger than at any time since the end of the Cold War.

Russia also appears to see the region as possessing a similar world view, one in which it can demonstrate its desire to counterbalance what it regards as US exceptionalism; where the restoration of its special relationship with a changing Cuba will be strategically significant; and where interesting numerical possibilities exist for voting at the UN and in other international fora.
