Rigging of General and Regional Elections on multiple occasions by one political party — the PNC.

IT is an undeniable and historically authenticated fact that for too long Guyanese have suffered immensely from the rigging of General and Regional Elections on multiple occasions by one political party — the PNC. In fact, these riggings have caused Guyanese to flee to all parts of the world in order to survive and barely eke out a living for thems
I PEN this letter to you today in regard to something I saw plastered on the front page of the Sunday, October 24 edition of the Kaieteur Newspaper which I find quite laughable. As I am sure many persons are aware, Kaieteur News would usually carry pictures in its publications of persons holding placards as part of their activism in support of thei
Guyana becoming a developed country is not merely an optimistic hope, but a doable and achievable reality, because Government’s facilitation of investments can propel this nation into First World status. Before the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Administration assumed the primary executive office in the land in October of 1992, Guyana was
  Members of the two PNCR Party groups in Canada note with concern a headline in Tuesday’s online version of Stabroek News that read, `PNCR Toronto Chapter endorses Joe Harmon.’ This headline suggests that the PNCR party groups in Canada support Joe Harmon. According to the North America Region’s (NAR) records, there are two legitimate PNCR gr
There are few politicians, who on their arrival on the political scene, bring with them an air of freshness to the humdrum of local politics. Janet Jagan was one of such. Born on 2Oth October 1920, she brought with her a huge amount of freshness, that pushed against the stale and male-dominated politics obtaining at the time in colonial British Gui
Over the last year under the PPP/C Government, we have seen massive development throughout the country despite the pandemic and other forces being at play. The Government has been working assiduously to fulfil their manifesto promises and thus far, they have done just what they promised to do. Such is an indication of great things that are yet to c
  HELP & Shelter condemns the video disseminated by Member of Parliament, Mr. Sherod Duncan, and calls for its immediate removal, investigation and sanction of Mr. Sherod Duncan for choosing to disseminate material which is distasteful, verbally insulting, demeaning and disrespectful not only to the Minister of Education but to all women o
The President’s insistence on his government recognition by the Opposition Leader is grounded in an objective historical reality. President Ali’s insistence that the Leader of the Opposition Mr. Harmon must recognize the standing government of the day as rightful and legitimate before any talks can commence between the two is one grounded in a hist
People worldwide are feeling conflicted, stuck somewhere between their fear of COVID 19 and the vaccines, especially the gene based vaccines. Unfortunately, there is a great deal of fake news and propaganda circulating. In such circumstances, 90% of the dissenting ideas may be classified as largely unfounded, however, mixed in with these ideas is t
Annette Ferguson recently attempted to make two arguments: that the people are suffering under this Government, and that APNU/AFC had a better housing plan than the incumbent PPP/C Government.I shall now comment on those two arguments:To begin, former Minister Ms Ferguson did not go into the trouble of explaining how the people are suffering under
The PPP currently has a strong position in Parliament after the unsuccessful election rigging fiasco. The party has shown that, over the years, it has made more good decisions than bad ones. It is to be seen what the future holds. The slim majority which it enjoys in Parliament can only be maintained by making the best long-term decisions for the c

Guyana Diaspora Online Forum

We have a large database of Guyanese worldwide.  Most of our readers are in the USA, Canada, and the UK.  Our Blog and Newsletter  would not only carry  articles and videos on Guyana, but also other articles on a wide range of subjects that may be of interest to our readers in over 200 countries, many of them non-Guyanese  We hope that you like our selections.

It is estimated that over one million Guyanese, when counting their dependents, live outside of Guyana.  This exceeds the population of Guyana, which is now about 750,000.  Many left early in the 50’s and 60’s while others went with the next wave in the 70’s and 80’s.  The latest wave left over the last 20 years. This outflow of Guyanese, therefore, covers some three generations. This outflow still continues today, where over 80 % of U.G. graduates now leave after graduating.  We hope this changes, and soon.

Guyanese, like most others, try to keep their culture and pass it on to their children and grandchildren.  The problem has been that many Guyanese have not looked back, or if they did it was only fleetingly.  This means that the younger generations and those who left at an early age know very little about Guyana since many have not visited the country.  Also, if they do get information about Guyana, it is usually negative and thus the cycle of non-interest is cultivated.

This Guyana Diaspora Online Forum , along with its monthly newsletter, aims at bringing Guyanese together to support positive news, increase travel and tourism in Guyana and, in general, foster the birth of a new Guyana, which has already begun notwithstanding the negative news that grabs the headlines.  As the editor and manager of the publication, I am committed to delivering Blog entries and Newsletters that are politically balanced, and focused on the positive ideas we wish to share and foster among Guyanese.
