Eusi Kwayana (94)… is a priceless gift to Guyana, the Caribbean and humanity – By David Hinds

Eusi Kwayana – 2014

OPINION: Demerara Waves – April 6, 2019  – By David Hinds

This past week, one of the architects of our relatively young nation, Eusi Kwayana, celebrated his 94th birthday. Kwayana, by any measure, is a rare human being—a priceless gift to humanity. I use this occasion to remind Guyana that we have given this remarkable gift to ourselves and the world.

As a Caribbean civilization, we are not known for powerful armies, rich economies and high skyscrapers, but our contribution to world civilization has been mostly in the form of what another Caribbean treasure, Rex Nettleford, calls the creative intellect and creative imagination. It says something beyond the ordinary that these former colonial outposts could in the fields of art, sports, political economy and academia produce men and women of the highest caliber who sit and stand among the best of what humanity has produced.    Continue reading

Opposition, civil society team up to get Sharma’s ban lifted

03 October 2011 – Demerara Waves

The opposition coalition A Peoples Partnership for National Unity (APNU), civil society and the Alliance For Change (AFC) on Monday collectively began planning to pressure government into lifting a four-month old ban on the privately-owned CNS TV6 television station.

At the centre of the decision by President Bharrat Jagdeo- the Information Minister to suspend the station’s operations is because of a Tony Vieira commentary on May 4, 2011 for which the station and Vieira have since been sued and the Advisory Committee on Broadcasting has gotten involved.

Participants of the strategy meeting included representatives of the Guyana Trades Union Congress (GTUC), Red Thread, Guyana Human Rights Association (GHRA) and religious organisations.      more
