NYC: Outrage over Guyanese publication – Guyana Times- critical of Haitian migrants

Caribbean Life News NY – August 9, 2019 – BY NELSON A. KING

Several Haitian-American legislators in New York have led outrage over a Guyanese publication critical of what it describes as the influx of Haitians migrating to the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member state.

An unauthored article published in the Guyana Times on Friday, under the headline, “Influx of Haitians into Guyana raises major health concerns,” has drawn the wrath of not only Haitian-Americans but of other Caribbean-American legislators and leaders.  The Guyana Times supports Guyana’s Opposition  People’s Progressive Party (PPP).

    Political propaganda politricks !

    However hope there are “safeguards”
    in place to prevent an epidemic spreading.
    Health is as important as wealth of a nation.

    Let’s hope the oil wealth is spent on improving
    the health of Guyana ….hospitals schools etc

    Also a free NHS for all guyanese regardless
    of their abilities to pay. Similar to UK
