Guyana Politics: PPP/C launches election campaign for 2020 polls

Hundreds of its supporters, decked in red shirts with PPP/C logos, shouted and screamed for party frontbenchers Bharrat Jagdeo, Irfaan Ali and Mark Phillips.

There are several notable mentions. ………  Bishop Juan Edghill gave an impassioned, sermon-like speech, addressing a stigma on the PPP/C from some sections of the public that it may not be a party welcoming to African Guyanese. He stressed a firm rebuke for those aspersions on the reputation of the PPP/C, then went on to list a number of African Guyanese party members as proof that it is welcoming.            Continue reading

John Paterson 1816-1898- The last of his generation – Dmitri Allicock

John Paterson 1816-1898- The last of his generation – Dmitri Allicock 

From a British Guiana Chronicle Newspaper Clipping 1898

The priceless value and meaning of an 1800′  obituary tells many tales of the forgotten times and paints a vivid picture of contemporary life. It testifies to the passing of time, it illuminates, vitalizes memory and brings us tidings of antiquity. The British Guiana Daily Chronicle carried such a death announcement of the last member the Paterson’s family who once held the reign of success and became legend in the early history and the building of British Guiana. This historical newspaper clipping was saved by a descendant of John Paterson and has survived for 115 years.

John Paterson was born the third child of John Dagleish Paterson and Elizabeth Hill at Plantation Christianburg, Upper Demerara in the year 1816. He was the last member of his generation to pass on.   [Read more: The 1898 Obituary of Brandy John Paterson ]
