A national consultation must be held on race and politics in Guyana. The year must be 2010 and every ordinary Guyanese must participate. Every youth organisation, autonomous and politically affiliated will participate in this national discourse in an objective, fair and unbiased manner.
At the conclusion, Secondary and Primary schools fourth and fifth form students will examine the findings of the discourse and present a paper on how they evaluate such findings.
The University of Guyana final year students will make the final evaluation of the discourse and present it to the general public. Every media house must carry fully, the coverage of this national consultation on race and politics.
It is important that we begin to address from a different perspective, outside the status quo of party politics, the truth of where we are at in relation to race and politics in Guyana. It is important that we hand back the power to pronounce and decide, to the ordinary citizens and to be guided by our young people referred to in the above to participate in deciding the course we must charter to save Guyana in the 21st century.
The Guyana Government continues to unleashed its pernicious powers in the form of human rights violations, corruption, raced based politics, etc, then choose the elections season to claim that these are mere allegations by anti government crusaders to destabilise and remove the Government.
This sometimes find sympathy from a large section of the Guyanese populace and the Government wins yet another election to continue on a larger scale its campaign to destroy Guyana.
A national consultation conducted outside and without the influence of party politics will achieve much. The masses will have to confront their consciences and be guided by truth when they go to the ballot boxes at the next elections. There is no way a national consultation on race and politics will not unravel the truth of what the PPP has done and continues to do to this nation post 1992.
Some will argue that I should not call for such a move and prejudge the outcome.
I will not prejudge the outcome. I know what it will be. Any rational Guyanese knows what this government has done and is doing to Guyana to hold on to power for reasons that has nothing to do with true development for all peoples of this country.
Such a consultation will remind Indians and Blacks in Guyana, more so our young Indian and Blacks that any elections that are won must be won on issues and not colour of skin or ethnicity.
That the voting masses will be equally responsible for putting or keeping a government in power amidst the violations and blatant disregard we see being meted out to sections of society, today.
