West Indies have come to a country with one of the highest COVID-19 death rates in the world, and helped save English cricket £280 million this summer. Time for England to show their thanks for supporting West Indies's pleas for away teams to get 20% of broadcasting rights  
The concept of 'true' fans keep coming up on this page and each poster seems to have a different connotation. But for many a fan should not be critical and should embrace and accept all that is produced by their team. Even fanatics do that do that and the reality is that a fan criticizes because of the pain and frustration brought about by the fail
Absolutely pathetic performance from our batsmen, again what role does Phil Simmons and Floyd Reifer play, just last year we beat England and our opening batsmen put together four 50 run opening partnerships, Holder scored a double century and Dorwich a century, so we get rid of unpopular Dave Cameron understood but you are so vindictive that you f

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.
