The 50th independence anniversary was a show to remember – Adam Harris + 2 videos

The 50th independence anniversary was a show to remember

MAY 29, 2016 | BY |ADAM HARRIS / COLUMNISTS, MY COLUMN

LOGO - 50th Independence AnniversaryI was in the United States in 1994 when the ice hockey team, the New York Rangers, won the Stanley Cup. It was the first time in 54 years. One spectator threw his head back and proclaimed, “Now I can die happy.” The year was the same when O.J. Simpson led the police on a slow speed chase, because they wanted to arrest him for the murders of Ronald Goldman and Simpson’s wife, Nicole Brown-Simpson.

I felt the same way as that fan when the land of my birth celebrated its 50th independence anniversary. I saw the greatest influx of overseas-based Guyanese. They kept coming with every flight that landed at the Cheddi Jagan and Ogle International Airports.   

I happened to be coming home from Trinidad when some of them were arriving. The welcome was out of this world, something that none of them could have got anywhere else in the world. That set the tone.   Continue reading

Guyana Jubilee: Celebrating 50 Years of Independence – by Melissa Noel – NBC News

Guyana Jubilee: Celebrating 50 Years of Independence

by MELISSA NOEL – NBC News

Guyana 50th logoGEORGETOWN, GUYANA — When Frank McLean touched down at Cheddi Jagan International Airport at the start of the week, he couldn’t believe he was home. “I’m here but it’s like I am not here. I remembered where my school was and I had to walk by it to really realize that I am here in Guyana,” McLean exclaims.

The 61-year-old Queens, New York resident left Guyana four decades ago and has not returned to the country of his birth until now to celebrate the nation’s 50th anniversary of independence. “I have a phobia of flying but I am a Guyanese to the bone. I am a Guyanese to the core and I couldn’t miss this,” he says.

McLean is one of thousands who have traveled to Guyana from the United States — home to the largest population of Guyanese people outside of Guyana — for the country’s Golden Jubilee celebrations.   Continue reading

If the word ‘jubilating’ is strange to you, so it was to me when I first heard it as I was on my way to the Jubilee Park on Wednesday night May 25, to enjoy the Flag Raising Ceremony of Guyana’s Golden Jubilee, May 26, 2016. I also over-heard the statement, “This is Jubilee, not stupidee.” The streets approaching the Jubilee Park were over-run with vehicles. It was grid-lock of the worst order. Drivers were impatiently honking their horns as though they were driving out Ole Higue. It was chaotic. (Please say the word the way it was popularized so long ago by one of our hero policemen; “chow-tic”).

It was so different a situation fifty years ago when I went to the then Queen Elizabeth Park – now the National Park – to witness the lowering of the Union Jack and the raising of the new National Flag of Guyana, the Golden Arrowhead. There were certainly not so many vehicles on our roads back then. Fifty years make a difference – a big difference – as it should, and I am about to relate just a few of those differences between the Flag Raising Ceremony at the Queen Elizabeth Park in Georgetown in May 1966 and that which occurred some fifty years later in May 2016.   Continue reading
