That’s where we are at the moment and it all has to do with a supply of oil to the refinery,” he told the media in Trinidad.              Continue reading

Encouraging Events, Disturbing Developments…

It is a wonderful thing, this Presidential menu of relief measures involving hinterland communities, farmers, and homeowners. It comes with slippage, a huge one: plenty people left out. Yes, I understand the Lord giveth. In Guyana, Lord Ali of Leonora, Santa Rosa, pockets of Demerara, somehow forgot to remember that he the leader of a mixed society called Guyana. When he and his people left out the other people, the PNC people, the encouraging faded, the disturbing invaded. How could this be, Dr. Excellency?              Continue reading

GUYANA: Agri-Investment Forum – Letter to Editor – By Eusi Kwayana

Dear Editor: — Letter By Eusi Kwayana – Submitted on May 19, 2022

Oily, newly rich Guyana has become a center of assembly for various bodies of state and private officials who wish to justify their activities in economic projects with popular appeal of wealth creation; even though some of them will aggravate the climate crisis in a region already highly vulnerable to climatic crisis.

Some months ago, there was the energy symposium at which the voices of perceptive Guyanese critics were repressed. Yesterday the Agri-Investment Forum opened in our capital city.

Unlike the menace posed by oil exploration and its hazards, agriculture is without a doubt population friendly.  If well planned with popular participation, it can be one of the most beneficial of economic activities.            Continue reading
