Outpouring of national pride in Brooklyn at APNU+AFC victory rally

June 15, 2015


It began with what has become the signature tune of the Granger Presidency “Let us cooperate” for Guyana. It was a Block Long Rally of Guyanese in NY who came out to celebrate the Victory of the APNU+AFC Coalition Victory in their native land.

Organized by a group of Guyanese in the Diaspora, the Rally featured songs and speeches. Guyana’s Minister of State in the Ministry of the Presidency Joseph Harmon told the gathering that the new administration in Guyana will clean things up. He alluded to the former political appointees in the administration who have been asked to leave

Guyana’s tourism minister Cathy Hughes pointed out that the country is a big, beautiful one that can now realize its potential that has been talked about for years. And the country’s Governance Minister Raphael Trotman made it clear to the Guyanese in America that Guyana’s Mineral and other Resources belong to the country. In a reference to Venezuela’s maritime claim that could affect a ‘significant’ oil find by Exxon Mobil in Guyana’s waters, Trotman declared that Guyanese everywhere will defend Guyana’s right to its resources.

US Congressman Hakim Jeffries who also spoke at the Rally said that the United States would continue to support Guyana. Jeffries said they are “going to stand with Guyana and with its territorial integrity…and that means against the overreach that’s taking place by Venezuela”

The Rally was attended by Elected Representatives from both the US and Guyana while well-known Guyanese singers Lisa Punch, Eddie Neblett and Adrian Dutchin performed along with others.

    Hello! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a massive amount work?
    I’m brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my
    diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind
    of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

    A motivating discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you need to write more about this subject, it might not be a taboo subject but
    usually people do not discuss these subjects. To the next!

    Best wishes!!
