National Assembly reconvened – October 22, 2012

October 22, 2012. Georgetown. Guyana.

The National Assembly came out of recess on today and it was as if they never left. The house got caught up in an uproar as the Prime Minister stood up to speak about the recent blockage of the East Bank Public road by Agricola residents and the reported cases of persons being robbed and beaten. He accused the opposition, AFC and APNU, of orchestrating what took place in Agricola, a line the Government has been using on State TV, since the incident. The opposition fired back.              Continue reading

Linden Unrest – News Update – July 24, 2012 – 6 articles

Injured protester air-dashed to Georgetown after condition worsens

Ulric Michael, one of the Linden protestors who was shot and wounded by the police last Wednesday was this morning air-dashed to the city on a GDF helicopter after his condition took a turn for the worse.

Stabroek News was told that Michael, 33 years old, of 23 Canvas City is now unconscious. Following the incident, he had been admitted a patient of the Intensive Care Unit of the Linden Hospital Complex with gunshot wounds to the chest.

Ramotar’s offers “insufficient’” – Granger

On Tuesday morning July 24, the opposition leader and APNU chairman said Ramotar’s commitments were “necessary but insufficient.”

“We have certain demands on the table and it is a move forward that the president has started speaking directly to (Region 10 Chairman (Sharma) Solomon which is consistent with a July 10 call I made in a four-point plan which was even before the shooting,” Granger stated.

Region 10 Chairman tight-lipped about negotiations

AFC Press Release – May 9, 2012 – 3 subjects

May 9, 2012  – For Immediate Release to all Media Houses.  This news release discusses three subjects:

1-    Government using budget cuts to discriminate
2-    AFC wants smooth transfer of money in NICIL to Consolidated Fund
3-    AFC calls for effective political tripartite arrangement

.1- Government using budget cuts to discriminate

The Alliance For Change is aware that the Government plans to send home certain workers using the reduction made to the 2012 budget as the excuse.Instead of ‘weeding out’ the cronies and ‘fat-cats’ out of the system, the PPP/C Government is sacrificing ordinary cleaners and clerks and cutting the salaries of other rank and file employees to make a political point. This is devious.Prior, during and after the 2012 Budget debate and especially during the examination of the Estimates, the AFC made it clear that we do not want to send ordinary workers home.

We were targeting the ‘super-salary’ contract employees and the political dinosaurs who are paid as so called, ‘advisors’. Now, instead of sending off these political relics of the past, the Ramotar regime is turning ordinary workers into sacrificial lambs.     Continue reading
