New Book: English Speaking Caribbean Immigrants: Transnational Identities – by Lear Matthews

New Book: English Speaking Caribbean Immigrants: Transnational Identities – by Lear Matthews

learThis book explores the lived experiences of Guyanese and other English-Speaking Caribbean immigrants and the institutions through which they bridge nations-states, while maintaining a transnational lifestyle. The publication is particularly timely in light of the Diaspora’s resurgence of interest in developments in Guyana and the attempt at national unity following the recent elections.

This book highlights important but insufficiently documented dimensions of the experience of English-speaking Caribbean immigrants in the United States. It focuses on successes and challenges of what might be perceived as “living in two worlds.” The central theme, post-migration transnational connections, is informed by new research on the topic.   Continue reading

For me, this strike is another nail in the coffin of the much-anticipated power-sharing Government of National UnityContinue reading

Guyana’s Sovereignty over the Cuyuni River –  Guyana-Venezuela relations…

odeen– By Odeen Ishmael

During September 2015 when Venezuela flexed its military muscles near the border with Guyana, that country’s military patrol boats blatantly breached Guyana’s sovereignty by traversing the Cuyuni River at locations between its junctions with the Acarabisi River (to the east) and the Wenamu River (to the west). Guyana owns this entire section of the Cuyuni River which forms part of the border with Venezuela.

On September 23, the head of the Guyana Defence Force (GDF), Brigadier Mark Phillips, confirmed that the Venezuelans were using military boats in the Cuyuni River to shuttle troops between the village of San Martin on the northern bank to the Venezuelan-occupied Guyanese section of Ankoko Island. This action, he emphasized, was “an affront to our sovereignty.”   Continue reading
