Absence of Diversity at the Quebec Human Rights Commission – By Yvonne Sam

Absence of Diversity at the Quebec Human Rights Commission—Too much whiteness

By Yvonne Sam

The onus of creating and maintaining diversity has fallen to a Commission that is itself diverse.

Why is there an existing disparity between what those in power claim they want to enact and what is actually acted out? In Quebec it is simply a case of the more things change the more they remain the same– “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose”. Once again the Quebec Human Rights and Youth Rights Commission have come under harsh scrutiny, following the hiring of a senior manager in its Investigation Division.       Continue reading

The Reparations Debate – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

The Reparations Debate – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Who should benefi t from reparations? The answer is that anyone that was forcibly displaced by colonialism has the right to argue for redress. They include those from the African continent, from Asia, Europe, and the native peoples. This means that Blacks, Indians, Chinese, Portuguese, poor whites and Amerindians have a valid claim for reparations.

Eric Williams said that a man in a coffin had more room than those in a slave ship. The history is familiar. Slavery was inhumane, brutal and nasty. When the ‘door of no return’ was opened millions of Africans were transplanted to other countries. Their entry shaped the demography, economy and culture of America and the West Indies.      Continue reading

Israel – The Jumping Parliament – By Uri Avnery

Israel – The Jumping Parliament – By Uri Avnery – 27 January 2018

Uri Avnery

YEARS AGO, when I was a member of the Knesset, I decided to stage a demonstration in the plenum hall.  I put on a T-shirt with the slogan “Peace is greater than Greater Israel”. In the middle of the debate I took my jacket off, displaying the slogan.

After a few minutes, an usher approached me and said politely: “The Speaker would like to see you in his office.”

The speaker was Yitzhak Shamir, a former commander of the Lehi terrorist underground. He received me with a broad smile, asked me to be seated and said: “Uri, you have made your point. Now I ask you to take the t-shirt off and return to your seat!” Of course I did so.     Continue reading

Sugar workers sacking politically, racially motivated- Jagdeo; President’s Office: race-baiting is PPP’s “essential plank”

Bharrat Jagdeo

Urging sacked sugar workers to get registered in the right districts to vote for the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) at the 2020 general election, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo accused the David Granger-led administration of sending them home because of racial and political reasons.

Addressing hundreds of workers at Enterprise Community Centre, East Coast Demerara,  Jagdeo said government’s decision to make the 4,763 sugar workers redundant, which would adversely impact on at least 30,000 persons, was aimed at forcing a section of the PPP’s East Indian support base to leave Guyana.  Continue reading
