We youths will support the political entity that is best positioned to take us forward
I wish to register my utmost disgust with the contents of Freddie Kissoon’s Friday 19th August column, published in the Kaieteur News under the caption “The beach, two gates, justice and a banana republic”.
On this occasion Kissoon, through his miasmic outpourings sought to peddle the notion that youths like me who attended the Impress Youth Conference hosted by Youths for the PPP on Thursday August 11 at the Guyana International Conference Center only did so out of the lure of a promised laptop and $5000 for each participant by the organizers.
Mr. Editor, as one of the attendees who sought to ‘make their mark’ at the event I know of no such occurrence and I wish to dismiss this suggestion as yet another fabrication on the part of this academic.
I wish also to remind Kissoon that not every youth is inclined to be part of dishonest practices in order to ‘get by’. It is no longer necessary for youths to be involved in book stealing as a means of furthering one’s academic career. And while Kissoon and his colleagues worry about the political implications of the massive response to this call to ‘make our mark’, us youths are concerned with the future of our country and will throw our support behind which ever political entity we feel is better positioned to take us forward, whether it is to his liking or not.
