Bai Shan Lin aerial view of massive logging exports – video

Bai Shan Lin aerial view of massive logging exports without value-added processing as promised by locally processing logs aimed at employing Guyanese. Clear cutting of forests and massive raw log exports are not in Guyana’s interests. Duty-free concessions and low taxes for logs are also issues as to the benefits to Guyana. Many Guyanese are concerned!

    Daylight robbery indeed…..!!
    Why not process logs before exporting ….increase profits for Guyana treasury and employment for guyanese Labour.
    Commonsense approach to natural resources.
    Wake up Guyana ! Its 2014 not 18 or 1914 !

    Sad senseless stupidity !

    After viewing that ‘expose’ …it a word
    ‘RAPE’ !

      “RAPE” What is amazing is the lack of outcry by the Guyanese community to the destruction of their land by a foreign group, with what look like approval by the politicians. Are the Guyanese people that indifferent or they just don’t know what is going on.

        No …they are too busy struggling to survive…..too busy
        ‘dreaming’…not making that dream a reality !
        Not challenging the status quo in politics….

        All logging should be halted until the investigators can
        confirm its legality.

        Way forward.

    Snowden ‘s expose has been dwarfed….this expose is ten times
    worse…..the lungs of our planet being raped before our very eyes
    while the bla bla bla sheep spectate ! Wake up Guyana ‘if its not too late’
    Sustained development of our natural resources is the only way forward..’
    …less talk and more action please….Suspend all logging by an act of
    parliament immediately while the investigations continue.
    Let the parties battle it through the courts.
    Justice must only seem to be done …it is done.

    These people are going to turn the natural forest land into a desert and destroy the ecosystem. In parts of Brazil and Guyana, where they have been washing away the soil searching for gold, the bare hills look like nature in tears. The real culprits are the politicians who let them do this for bribes paid in some foreign account. It will destroy the Amerindians way of life and come back to haunt future generations.

    Just hope its not too late….!

    Speechless.

    2 saplings should be planted for each tree that is cut down. Soon there will be no trees left in Guyana, if these people are allowed to clear our lands of its trees. Something must be done before the forest are depleted due to bauxite mining and logging in such a massive scale.

  • de castro  On August 21, 2014 at 10:53 pm

    Lorraine
    Planting 2 saplings to replace a hundred year old tree
    is short sighted ! Don’t fell the tree in the first place !
    Commonsense must prevail here…..
    Thats why the word ‘rape’ was used to describe the
    actions of deforestation by logging companies.
    It was the ‘scale’ of the action…thats the concern.

    Felling trees is similar to slaughtering of wild animals.
    Culling is a wiser approach to sustainability in both.

    Of course some will argue ‘why cull when you can transfer’
    hence areas are set aside for this purpose.

    Not wishing to go on about this issue …guyanese people are more aware now than before so am sure a solution will be
    forthcoming.

    THIS IS NOT ONLY RAPE IT IS KICKBACKS AND NEPOTISM AND ALL THOSE EVILS TAKING PLACE IN GUYANA. FOLLOW THE MONEY AND YOU’LL FIND THE ARCHITECTS OF THE UNPATRIOTIC CHICANERY.
