The AFC is demanding an apology from President Ramotar for the racist editorial in The Chronicle

The Alliance for Change is now demanding an apology from President Donald Ramotar who is also the Minister of Information for the racist editorial that the state owned newspaper Guyana Chronicle carried last week.

AFC Executive member Gerhard Ramsaroop condemned the controversial editorial which sought to indicate that young black men were being groomed to attack, rob and be violent against Indians.    
AFC believes that the firing of the reporter who wrote the article and the suspension of the newspapers editor is not enough. The Party is calling for the Board of the state owned media which includes radio, television and print to be reformed, a call the part has been making for some time now.
During this week a number of social and political activists staged picketing exercises in condemnation over the editorial.

    The rest of the worl is moving foarrwd while Guyana is moving backward. It is unthinkable how the disgraceful minster can look at his grand children with silverspoons in their mouth while he send other children to the fields and factory floors. Where is our children innocence and what is the price of it. Will sending children to the workforce bring the Guyana economy out of its misery? We should support this legislation but onlt after the minister and his associates send their children to the work force. I am sure the US state department is taking note and is prepare to put Guyana manufactured product under the child labour restriction.
