After Buxton, what Linden means for Africans in Guyana -Tacuma Ogunseye

The blood of our fallen comrades must not be shed in vain

Since the PPPC came to power in 1992, its policy has been to encourage the security forces, particularly the police, to shed African blood as a way of waging psychological warfare on the African Guyanese community…

For six years Buxton was the symbol of African resistance against state sponsored extra –judicial killings of young African men. Today, Linden has become the symbol of African resistance against political and racial oppression, economic and social marginalization.

(Demerara Waves) – March 14, 2012

Amaila Falls Hydro-power plant

Guyana’s two opposition parties Wednesday night (March 14, 2012),  expressed satisfaction with government’s explanation about plans to build the US$840 million Amaila Falls Hydro-power plant but at least one party says the talks do not amount to a rubber-stamp.

Using its one-seat majority in the National Assembly, the combined opposition has been flexing its muscles in demanding details from government about several major projects. The decision to provide as much information as possible was made at tripartite meetings among the government and the opposition during the past several weeks.

Alliance For Change (AFC) Executive member, Gerhard Ramsaroop and A Partnership for National Unity’s (APNU) Vice Chairman, Dr. Rupert Roopnaraine both welcomed the openness during the presentation on the 165 megawatt facility. The briefing was done mainly by Head of the Privatisation Unit, Winston Brassington.    Continue reading
