Success squatters and squatters in general

THERE has been a lot of talk on squatting, especially in recent times as it relates to the Success squatters. It is not surprising that those who have lost politically are attempting to use this incident, as with every other situation, to send out their scouts of evil to excite people to misbehave and cause pandemonium. One can clearly see how obvi

  By GHK Lall US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, came, saw, and conquered Guyana in all of less than a single full day.  As an American I am proud; as a Guyanese I shrink from the implications underlying Mr. Pompeo’s successful visit.  God has blessed, again, America; he must hate Guyana with the nonsense in which we engage. I heard
With preparations now underway to facilitate the visit here later this week by the United States’ Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, there has been a brisk burst of chatter in some quarters over the significance of his coming here and just what the key issues on the agenda for the visit might be. The practice of diplomacy, particularly as it relate
A few things are on my mind as I write this letter but I will limit it to two issues. First, the visit of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Every Guyanese should welcome this visit. Although some of us may not be supporters of the current US Administration, we must remind ourselves that the Guyanese and American people enjoy longstanding, very goo

In that letter, the writer called for the revocation of Professor Paloma Mohamed-Martin’s appointment as the vice- chancellor of UG on the grounds that her late husband Professor
I WISH to make it pellucid that a person who gives open advice must not be labelled as a source of bad news, but as a person providing sound guidance. Therefore, I am writing this missive, not as a political antagonist but as an Ambassador for Peace. As an Ambassador for Peace; peace is all that I am interested in, along with justice and fairness t
I HUMBLY seek space in your publication to make a few points about what may be the most topical issue in Guyana’s political circle, that is, the blatant attempts between March 2, 2020 and August 2, 2020 to rig an election in full view of the world. Editor, I see a lot of folks are trying to sell the narrative that the arrest of Region Four Returnin
  There is much support for President Ali in the diaspora on the review of the Payara FDP and for renegotiation of the oil contract. However, it is very difficult, though not impossible, to break a contract with a multinational corporation (MNC). Breaking a contract is fraught with serious consequences, some of which are geo-political. Anyone
The unfortunate reality is that ExxonMobil is talking from a position of declining financial fortunes, while Guyana is talking from a position of plain misfortune. Guyana is in the weaker bargaining position to renegotiate with ExxonMobil. As of Tuesday, August 25, ExxonMobil is no longer a member of the Dow Jones International Average, which is a
By Stabroek News– August 23, 2020 – EDITORIAL There has been no term more tossed about in the political sphere in recent times than ‘shared governance’, by which is more properly meant ‘shared executive governance’. It has been trumpeted as the panacea for all our constitutional ills, which will reduce if not eliminate the political cum ethnic
