Several hundred public servants today turned out to protest what they called ‘AFC thieving’ of their jobs in response to a motion by AFC MP Khemraj Ramjattan for cuts to some ministries’ contract jobs.

Several government ministers also joined the protest line of chanting workers, all of whom said that passage of the motion to be considered today would put them on the breadline.

There was a face-off between some of the workers and APNU protestors who were hollering ‘we want jobs too, we fed up of the thiefing.’   [more]

    Is this AFC for real? Is this the party I wasted my vote on! Never again will I vote for such ignorant people who make up this party. Ramjattan and Nagamotoo are the more experienced in the party and for Ramjattan to make such a foolish comment to cut several Ministeries contract jobs. Do they know the problems that will occur in Guyana?
