FILM: Vaxxed: from Cover-Up to Catastrophe – Vaccination and autism

Diaspora documentary – Vaxxed 2  – By Geoff Burrowes 

Me heart nearly buss out me ches wit pride and joy las night!

A truly controversial documentary was premiered in Toronto last night – 26 January 2020 – to a lively crowd of 100 or so and continues to show at the Kingsway Cinema on Bloor Street Toronto nightly. The director, Brian Burrowes was born in Georgetown, Guyana and lived and was educated there until his parents rudely uprooted him and moved him to Canada in 1975! He was six years old at the time and to all intents and purposes thinks of himself as a Canadian! He is however proud of his Guyanese heritage!

Why is his film controversial? Because it exposes the greed and callousness of the big pharmaceutical companies and the medical establishment and guess how they like that? The music was composed and recorded by his equally talented young brother Ian who has been a musician in Austin for many years!

  The story behind the movie is as fascinating as the movie itself!     Continue reading

OPINION: A plea to humanity amidst the brutality – By Yvonne Sam

By Yvonne Sam

Are we not our brother’s keeper?

I am in no way soliciting a response, to the afore-stated inquiry, based on the fact that current happenings in Guyana reveal that the people are still answering Cain’s question to God. (Genesis, 4:9). Ironically, the Brother’s Keeper epithet was first framed as a negative:  When God asked after Cain, fresh from murdering Abel, where his brother was. Cain answered, “I know not; am I my brother’s keeper?”

Today any morally upright, sane thinking, god fearing, people loving, oil benefitting Guyanese knows that where God is concerned, the right response is a resounding “Yes!”  After all, Jesus told us so Himself, through stories like the Good Samaritan and imperatives like “Love Your Neighbor.”          Continue reading

Guyana Politics: PPP challenges GECOM explanation on changes to particulars of 91,000 voters

The opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) has challenged the legal basis for the Guyana Elections Commission’s (GECOM) changing of particulars of 91,000 electors stemming from the July-August house-to-house registration exercise, disagreeing that the information is unintentionally incorrect.

GECOM says the Commissioner of Registration, Keith Lowenfield, who is also the Chief Elections Officer, is legally empowered under Regulation 37 of the National Registration (Residents) Regulations Act to make any changes to any revised list within 21 days after certification once he is satisfied that any entry or omission in any list as revised is incorrect through inadvertence in the course of such revision.            Continue reading
