Barring a court outcome quashing the no-confidence motion, General and Regional Elections are around the corner. This is usually the period in Guyana when racial tension is at its peak.
While that time lurks, the Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC) is slated to launch the first part of its 2019 harmony campaign on Friday at the Grand Savannah Suite, Pegasus, Georgetown.
ERC announced this yesterday.
The commission said that Friday’s event will be packed with many activities. A national unity song is to be performed by Guyanese artistes Mark Ferdinand and Tshanna Cort. There will be “five harmony-themed public service announcements.”
Four posters, a harmony “passport”, designs for two billboards and the Commission’s new website will be presented too.
In addition there is a new stage-play, “I AM US”, which, ERC says, speaks to unity and which examines some societal factors that impact on social cohesion, will be launched.
The play, which will feature prominent Guyanese actors and actresses, is to be staged on March 2. ERC indicated that many other activities are planned for the campaign.
ERC said that it firmly believes this campaign, which is in keeping with its constitutional mandate to promote harmony and good relations, is vital in helping to enhance the environment to foster unity among all Guyanese.
“ERC said that it remains optimistic that “Guyanese will find useful the materials which will be made available and will be conduits to aid distribution countrywide.”
The Commission has extended invitations to the government, the Opposition, the Diplomatic Corps, civil society, the media and other national stakeholders.
