Guyanese Online Announcement: Political Entries and Comments

FROM THE EDITOR – GUYANESE ONLINE – MARCH 19, 2020

As from today, there will be no more entries in Guyanese Online that relate to politics in Guyana, the USA, or any other country. Readers are encouraged to go elsewhere to the many news outlets available.

Readers would understand that the divisive nature of many political news items and commentaries will not help any country in these perilous times. It is now believed that the worldwide reactions to the Coronavirus pandemic will cause the meltdown in economies worldwide and these will be accompanied by social disruptions. This emergency will last for months and many countries, businesses and organizations will not recover.

From now on, therefore, this blog will concentrate with renewed focus on helping Guyanese Associations worldwide with their projects. This was the original reason for creating this website in February 2010.

Please refrain from posting any more comments to previous political articles., as they will be deleted.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Cyril Bryan
