It was held at the St. John’s Episcopal/Anglican Church in Mount Rainier, Maryland. The celebration was conducted in two phases; the Religious and the Civil.

Traditionally, this Independence Celebration is held on the Sunday closest to May 26. This year, it was brought forward to May 15, because many of those who attend St. John’s, will be in Guyana for the Big Celebration in the Motherland. There is much excitement in the cold air of Maryland, with those who have already bought their Air Tickets and made all the necessary arrangements for their visit to our “Dear Land of Guyana.” While some of them have been visiting regularly over the years, there are some who are returning to Guyana for the first time in decades.   Continue reading

The artifice of corporate totalitarianism has been exposed. The citizens, disgusted by the lies and manipulation, have turned on the political establishment. But the game is not over. Corporate power has within its arsenal potent forms of control. It will use them. As the pretense of democracy is unmasked, the naked fist of state repression takes its place.  Continue reading
