that 67 have been granted asylum
November 23rd 2006
On reading the AFC column (KN
06.11.19) I was quite shocked to learn that 67 Guyanese
have been granted asylum in foreign countries. Most of these I
assume are in Canada. I am not really surprised because people are
being forced to leave.
Mr Donald Ramotar's response was that the Canadian authorities
were wrong to grant asylum status to these Guyanese. Well Mr Ramotar
should take a careful look at the actions of President Jagdeo over
the last 5 to 6 years. He is travelling the world with his begging
bowl and trying to maintain the status of this proud country Guyana
as a HIPC - Highly Indebted Poor Country.

Clearly there is no plan to develop our national resources or a
plan to create proper jobs for our people. The only alternative is
for them to leave by whatever means necessary.
Mr Ramotar should understand that this situation is getting
worse. Guyanese will leave and go anywhere to get away from the mess
we have here.
