Citizens vs. Government

August 10, 2011 | Filed Under Editorial 

There is certainly no dearth of accusations by citizens of Guyana of governmental malfeasance in the execution of their duties, resulting in violations of the rights of those citizens.

THE RIOTS IN LONDON

August 10, 2011 | Filed Under Features / Columnists, Peeping Tom 

London is a big city. It is not easily policed. In London, unless you implement a curfew, you cannot control all areas. It is impossible. But the heavy presence of the police will help to calm the situation and give assurance that something is being done. Placing thousands more police in the streets is just […]

Baby language and fascism in Guyana

August 10, 2011 | Filed Under Features / Columnists, Freddie Kissoon

August 10, 2011 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor Mr. Freddie Kissoon says he does not care what I write and does not pay heed to my writings.

An insult to both ourselves and our ancestors

August 10, 2011 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, Each year the people of Guyana celebrate the emancipation of our African ancestors. The Government of Guyana, representative of all Guyanese, issues a grant to emancipation committees countrywide as their contribution to Emancipation Celebrations.
