OPINION: Guyana border controversy: many friends, one fiend to balance those

by GHK Lall Guyana is now at the rarest elevation in its checkered history. Anybody and everybody are rushing forward to identify as this country’s friend. That is, except for Venezuela. Much obliged. Relative to the border controversy, Guyana is now in the comforting position of having more allies, backers, champions, and a devoted following than any other place in ...

OPINION: Venezuelan aggression and economic imperialism will not stand!

By Dr. Randy Persaud, Professor Emeritus The so-called Organic Law for the Defence of Guyana Essequiba passed in Venezuela on April 3, 2024, is null, void, and dead upon arrival in Guyana, in the Caribbean, and in the international community. No country in the world that accepts the basic principles of international law will respect the conspicuous bullying of the ...

OPINION: Brother Eusi Kwayana is 99 years old!

By Dr David Hinds On April 4, 2024, Eusi Kwayana turned ninety-nine. He is the only living member of the class of 1953—the foremost leaders of the original PPP. It is difficult to properly analyze modern Guyanese politics without taking into consideration Eusi Kwayana’s wide ranging contributions.

OPINION: A budget supplement in the making, or budget steroids

by GHK Lall President Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali has been placed above his capacity.  This much is clearer.  He has made the cardinal mistake of thinking that volume at high levels guarantees victory in the minds of Guyanese.  Better men have made worst miscalculations.  Take the latest on the 2024 national budget, and there is proof of who and what ...

OPINION: On Sackur: This Land is Our Land

By Dr. Randy Persaud, Professor Emeritus I am hesitant in labeling foreign people as colonial or neocolonial without making a case that is substantial in terms of theory and evidence. To stay silent in the face of abuse is a dereliction of duty. Of recent, the assault on Guyana from some foreign folks, ably assisted by local collaborators, is undeniable ...

OPINION: The UN lit a fire under Jagdeo and his people

by GHK Lall I thought that civil society should be fearful, since its outspoken members and entities are the ones under constant attacks from the PPP Government and Bharrat Jagdeo’s round table.  Instead, the attackers are the frikkened ones.  Something has rattled their cage, whipped them into a frenzy.  Word is that the recent UN Human Rights Committee (UNHRC) proceedings ...

OPINION: Venezuela: engaging international community mandatory, engaging opposition just as compulsory 

by GHK Lall Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro has upped the stakes on Guyana, remorselessly ratchets up the pressure.  On paper, in rhetoric, he is going for broke, he will have to cross the line, the point of no turning back, at some fateful hour.  What will be the fatal straw?  Or maybe the convenient concoction drummed up to rationalize, to give ...
