GUYANA: Oil: Oil everywhere but not enough to eat: A holiday reality check – By Red Thread

 December 20, 2021 – By Red Thread – A Guyana NGO

Red Thread’s members are primarily grassroots women, who live daily with various forms of economic and social insecurity. Despite this, over three decades, we have built an organisation that advocates and organises with women, beginning with grassroots women, to cross divides  and transform our conditions.  Red Thread runs the Cora Belle and Clotil Walcott Self-Help Drop In Centre, which provides support for and advocates with survivors of domestic violence as well as low wage workers (https://redthreadguyana.org/)

Everywhere you turn you read about oil. How much better off Guyana and Guyanese will be. But most Guyanese are not seeing these benefits. Most Guyanese are catching hell to make ends meet while the oil companies – the beneficiaries of a disgraceful and lopsided production sharing agreement negotiated by the coalition government and upheld by the present administration – are laughing all the way to the bank.              Continue reading
