Energy agency in

fresh fuel busts

By Neil Marks
THE Guyana Energy Agency
(GEA) is hunting a
Georgetown businessman
caught storing fuel on an is-
land in the Essequibo River
while waiting to hear from
the owner of a chain of gas
stations allegedly found sell-
ing illegal diesel at a West
Demerara location.
The GEA Friday midday
sealed off the diesel pumps and
underground tanker of the Two
Brothers Gas Station at La
Grange, West Bank, but up to.
yesterday had failed to hold the
owner who has a line of gas sta-
tions and associated businesses
with the Two Brothers label.
GEA head Joseph O'Lall
yesterday said his agency has
secured the fuel and is guarding
the location 24/7 until the court
decides on what action should
be taken.
Mr. O'Lall said the
businessman's lawyer has com-
municated with him, indicating
that they would meet him to-

owner was not on the premises
at the time of the GEA opera-
tion but the agency head added
that he had personally informed
the Police about the illegal fuel
find and efforts were being made
to apprehend and detain the

O'Lall said fuel dealers are
not aware of the amendment to
the Energy Agency Act which he
explained now provides the
agency with "the powers of the
He said, according to
Amendment #12 of the Energy
Agency Act, published in the
Official Gazette on August 04,
2005, "if it is necessary, be-
cause of time and we cannot get
a warrant from a magistrate, we
now have the right to enter any
premise, break down any inner
wall or outer wall, detain any-
one, leave things as they are or
remove things as necessary in
our investigation."
"So all of those who claim
we do not have the power to
enter private property, must
now take notice of the amend-
ment," O'Lall warned.
Charges against the busi-
nessman are likely to be laid this
week, he said.
According to the GEA
head, charges will also be filed
against another city business-
man whose storage bond on an
island in the Essequibo River
was found with one barrel of il-
legal fuel.
He said the businessman
has no licences to store or offer
for sale fuel, and as such he
would be charged.
According to O'Lall, the'
businessman, who operates a
large general store in
Georgetown, can be charged
even though the fuel find was

THE main opposition
People's National Congress
Reform (PNCR) yesterday re-
acted sharply to reported
charges by its former execu-
tive member Raphael
Trotman that the party was
behind a break-in at his
Georgetown house Friday
A party statement said the
claim was unfounded, self-serv-
ing and intended for cheap po-
litical points.
The Kaieteur News yester-
day reported Mr. Trotman as
laying the blame for the break-
in at his house "squarely at the
feet of the PNCR."
Repeated efforts to contact
Trotman for a comment failed


Trotman who played a role both
in the formulation and imple-
mentation of its policy on crime.
According to the release,
the party condemned the crimi-
nal act that took place at
Trotman's home.
"In the final analysis," said
the statement, "the PNCR is
too busy with the more impor-
tant task of seeking to build a
prosperous, cohesive and har-
monious society and the more
immediate task of preparing for
national and regional elections to
be distracted by the childish an-
tics of someone who is franti-
cally trying to lift his political
profile and gain the sympathy

allegations in the Kaieteur News
that two men threatened him in

strange that Trotman, a trained

text of such allegations, should
rush to identify the PNCR for
blame, in light of the fact that
he did not report the first and
alleged threat to the police."

THE LATEST example of racial incitement in this
ethnically divided society to come from TV "talk show"
host, Ronald Waddell, should not be restricted to the
sense of outrage expressed by Dr. Roger Luncheon,
Head of the Presidential Secretariat last Thursday.
Nor is it enough to just invite interventions by either
the respected Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC), or
the apparently weak Advisory Committee on
Broadcasting (ACB). Not after what has been previously
reported by Eusi Kwayana in his recently released book,
'The Morning After'.
As a nation committed to the rule of law, the
Guyanese people should be anxious to know where the
Attorney General, Director of Public Prosecution and the
Police Commissioner stand on this dangerous situation
of reckless abuse of freedom of expression that poses
an evident threat to individual and national security.
Systematic abuse of the airwaves has long been a
feature of what local and regional journalist colleagues
of mine have aptly described as "wild west TV" in this

Some "moderators" or "hosts" of so-called "talk
shows" seem to have a penchant for being as mean,
nasty, vindictive and dangerous as anyone could
possibly be in misusing freedom of the media and the
wider freedom of expression
President Bharrat Jagdeo's administration has to be
seen to be upholding the rule of law by taking the most
legitimate, appropriate action in defence of the rule of
law against any individual, or group, with an agenda of
spreading race hate, inciting violence and, consequently,
posing a threat to national peace and security.
Not angry, emotional statements, but decisive
actions for which the President should also seek the
cooperation of Opposition Leader Robert Corbin,
given his and the PNCR's own awareness of the threats
being posed to peace and security by those who abuse
the airwaves.
Neither the Attorney General nor the DPP can claim
unawareness or, for that matter the ABC, of the gross
abuse of freedom that is a dangerously recurring feature
on what passes for TV "talk shows". On, in particular,
'HBTV' Channel Nine acronym bearing surnames of a
former Health Minister and a late PNCR leader and ex-
Nor can the police and army intelligence honestly
plead ignorance about the ideas and activities of some
nationals of this country who have been identified by the
courageous Kwayana as "political masterminds" in his
incisive examination of "the criminalisation" of Buxton.
If the ERC, ABC and, more importantly, the police,
Attorney General and DPP, the President and Opposition
Leader are serious in effectively arresting racial
incitement and the encouragement of criminal violence,
there is one immediate thing they could do:
Get hold of and read if they have not yet done so -
what Kwayana, the once respected "sage of Buxton" and
one of the legends of our party political history, has
written in his 'The Morning After' that was released last
June to coincide with the 25th commemoration
anniversary of the assassination of Walter Rodney.
I cannot recall any rejection in the established media
of this country by any of those named by Kwayana in
connection with spreading race hate via the electronic

media on some TV 'talk shows'. Such programmes are
evidently designed for the unlawful but politically
satisfying purpose in fomenting racial animosity, and
worse, in full view of the public that would include
representatives of the disciplined forces, the justice
administration system, religious organizations and the
local bar association.
By their collective silence and/or inaction such
representatives may themselves be
unwittingly endangering public safety and national
security as, unchecked, the purveyors of racial incitement
are emboldened into thinking that they can do their
irresponsible, cowardly, unlawful thing and remain
It may be instructive if the decision-makers of the
PPP/C and PNCR seek to inform themselves of the
circumstances when and why Eusi Kwayana "walked
away" from Ronald Waddell because, as recorded in his
'The Morning After' publication, he "did not want to be
mistaken as an ally" of that individual.
In the meanwhile, let us see if Waddell and a
management representative of 'HBTV' will show up
for a meeting tomorrow, as requested by the
constitutionally-created ERC to discuss the
relevant inflammatory broadcast message. What the
Commission does now in this case could set an
example in the national interest.

TWENTY TWO years ago
this week, the Caribbean's
little spice isle, Grenada,
became the first former
British colony of the 54-
nation Commonwealth to be
invaded by the mighty
USA under the
then Republican
administration 'of President
Ronald Reagan.
The reason offered, was to
prove as dangerously false as
the US military invasion of Iraq
just two and half years ago, with
the world still witnessing the
horrendous consequences of
superpower politics in that
devastated nation in the Middle
In both cases, the military
invasions were more to
satisfy Washington's agenda in
maintaining maximum power
and influence in America's
national interest than anything
else. Nothing to do with all the
cant about "democracy" or
freeing the world of "terrorists".
Weapons of mass
destruction (WMDs) in:.-the
possession of the


notorious tyrant Saddam
Hussein once the favoured
"ally" of Washington over
Iran, and now on trial by a

court established by occupying
power USA was solemnly
advanced by President George
W Bush to justify the invasion.
Even once strong defenders
of that unjustified preemptive
war on Iraq have since been
compelled by hard evidence to
face up to the harsh realities of
the enormous falsehood
perpetrated by. the Bush
administration about Saddam's
WMDs, but with Iraq's oil
wealth very much in focus.
Now, fast forward to
October 1983. The Reagan
administration had failed to
convince, as accurate, even its
more faithful allies that the new
Grenada international airport
then under construction at Point
Saline by Cuba was a military
airfield project.
That project, the US
insisted, was consistent with a

claimed "international
communist plot" in the Western
Hemisphere involving the
Sandinistas in Nicaragua, the
Cubans and Maurice Bishop's
People's Revolutionary
Government (PRG).
Failure to convince its allies did
not, however, deflect a
hysterical rightwing administration
in Washington from letting up on
massive propaganda against and
covert pressures on governments in
Managua and St George's.

-When, therefore, the PRG's
"revolutionary experiment" in

governance culminated with
"comrades" murdering
"comrades" in defence of a
"revolution" that had gone
terribly wrong, the Reagan
administration hastily dusted its
"Grenada files" and upgraded
plans to invade the smallest and
weakest of a so-called
"communist troika" while
continuing destabilisation
schemes against Cuba and
Under codename, 'Urgent
Fury', the US invaded Grenada
by dawn on October 25, one
week after the slaughter of
October 19 when cowards,
styled "revolutionaries" of a
short-lived 'Revolutionary
Military Council", executed

Prime Minister Bishop,
members of his PRG cabinet and
close colleagues.
But if the US-led
preemptive war on Iraq that
poured contempt on the United
Nations when it sidelined the
Security Council, is now
increasingly haunting the
credibility of President Bush at
home, there remains a range of
unresolved significant issues 22
years after the nightmare of
Grenada's executions (October
19) and military invasion
(October 25).
Alimenta Bishop, the ailing
octogenarian mother of Maurice

J a

Hii~fnn^ A^J re-mciy^f~~~~

Bishop, who lost a husband
during the era of 'Gairyism'
politics only to live through the
horrors of "bloody October 19",
continues to tell all Grenadians
and the world that 22 years on,
she is still to receive the

information for which she has
been pleading to successive,
Grenadian 'and American'>''
authorities -the remains of a
bullet-riddled son, executed at
Fort George that horrible day a
"revolution" devoured itself.
Separate from the court
trials of the so-called infamous
'Grenada 17' of Bernard Coard, ,
his wife Phyllis Coard and
others for the murder of Bishop
and others, NO independent
commission of inquiry was ever
established into the related
unprecedented tragedies of
political executions and military

IT'S official I have been
made an honorary member of
the Rastafarian community
and my Rasta name is now
Ras Rief Khan.
I have been advised by the
elders that the official baptism
will take place soon complete
with much incense burning and
all the other rituals befitting
such a grand occasion.
I promise I'll let you all
know when it is so that we all
can join and have a grand irie cel-
ebration to honour the moment.
Thanks brethren and sistren
for welcoming me so warmly
into the community after my
column last week about freeing
up the Rasta.
Almost everywhere I turned
last week, people were high in
praise of my preaching the gos-
pel of the righteous and I am
now.accepted as an Honorary
Rastaman vibrations posi-
tive. Yes, man the vibrations
were positive, real positive!
And I just couldn't help feeling
the good vibes bouncing off
from me and from you to me.
Oh, such good vibes! Jah
Perhaps the sweetest vibes
came from two female guards on
duty at the National Communi-
cations Network (NCN) com-
pound on Homestretch Avenue
in Georgetown on Wednesday
I was heading in to be part
of a TV programme on educa-
tion with Education Minister
Dr. Henry Jeffrey, former Edu-
cation Minister and People's
National Congress Reform
Shadow Education Minister in
Parliament, Mr. Deryck Ber-
nard, and others and stopped at
the gate for the usual check.
One of the guards dutifully
advised me that I had to give my
name and other details before
being allowed to proceed and I
was only too happy to oblige.
But I was totally unpre-
pared for the almost rapturous
response I got when I gave my
name and one of the guards
looked at me in some absolutely
delightful sense of wonderment
and then burst out, "You are the
man who write about Rasta and
halaal meat in the Chronicle!"
And thereupon her compan-
ion guard turned around to eye
me and deliver an almost self-
same look of pure delight and
Needless to say, I Ras Rief
Khan was already in sweet
Rasta heaven. Praise and thanks
to the Most.High!
Remember how I told you
last week that I am a scribe and
my job is writing?
Well, there's no more sweet
satisfying nectar than when
people without any fuss, pre-
tence working class people,
struggling daily to make ends
meet can find such delight in
what you write.

I shared in their joy as the
two guards cooed and fussed at
meeting ordinary me so much
so that one gave me the
wrong colour card for adnus-
sion to the NCN studio., but
the other was quick to spot
the mistake and give the
right one.
"Ow, Mr. Khan, it too
sweet. Give we some more
this week, please!"
How you gon stop
Ras Rief Khan with fans
like these?! Man, was I
on a Rasta Cloud Nine
or what as I headed
away to the studio?!
And when I was
leaving after the TV ..
programme had been
taped, my two guard '
fans again begged that I
give them something
sweet again this week.
Thanks for the sweet
and good feelings, you two
nice and wonderful women!
God bless!
Those are the kind of good
feelings that live with you
through the storms of life,
clouds of comfort in rough
times, songs of melody that lull
you to a good sleep after a
tough day feelings of joy
shared freely, deeply, without
any false pretence, without any
need to suck up. Just plain old
feeling good feelings being
shared around.
My two new fans were like
that Rasta who had no need to,
but somehow felt compelled to
join the Chronicle Posse at the

Duck Curry competi-
tion at the Uitvlugt Community
Centre ground, West Coast
Demerara last Sunday.
I led the Chronicle Posse
into the affair, looking for some
good fun in the break away from
the stress of the work week and
giving the staff a chance to bet-
ter bond away from the office.
We almost didn't make it
into the competition because al-
though we had the two ducks,
duly roasted, and with the curry
powder and all the other vitals
necessary for a good duck curry,
we had not even walked with a

chopper or the required karahi
or canary ior round frying pan).
Reporters Delana Isles,
Michel Outridge, Renu
Raghubir. Ken' ah Choquanyi,
acting News Editor Mark
Ramotar and others planning the
outing had designated poor Se-
nior Reporter Chamanlall
Naipaul, a de-
voted vegetar-
ian who has
nothing to
: do with
meat, the
chief chef
for our
duck curry
No wonder
he turned up
* % without a chopper
but \%ith a karahi so
huge that others thought
%e \%ere there to cook
duck curts for sale to raise
funds for the Chronicle!
A non-meat man in charge of
an all-meat affair! If that wasn't
a recipe for disaster, I don't
know what else is.
And guess who was in the
forefront among those winging
in to the rescue?,That's right -
a Rasta, an ital man who has ab-
solutely no business with meat.
But without hesitation and
on seeing the dire duck dung
straits we were heading into, he
and a partner soon had our fire
burning like it was love through
the night and our duck curry
crew got down to preparing the
ducks for the pot.
There it was a Rasta

man and a vegetarian linking
arms and hands with a band of
meat-eating unbelievers to cook
up a big pot of duck curre -
which although it
did not win a
prize, had the
Chronicle Posse
and visitors to our tent in glon-
ous tongue raptures.
The stuff was so good that
there was a stampede from the
crowd to our tent at tasting time
and so much of it went that poor
Mark got not a taste. He had to
be content with the still linger-
ing after-smells and the satisfied
faces of the rest of the posse.
And all because the good
Rasta and our resident vegetar-
ian shed their distaste for meat
to cook up a sterling duck curry
for a bunch of meat-eaters.
My brethren and sistren -
that was one powerful message
that gave I Ras Rief Khan as
good a feeling as that which
swept through me when the two
NCN guards later shared their
joy with me.
If a Rasta and a vegetarian
can rally to the aid of a posse
of meat lovers and help them
stir up a mighty good duck
curry, why are others so busy
trying to stir up hatred and mis-
ery in this land of ours?
Rasta and veggie have no
right dealing with meat, but the
two brothers rallied to the aid of
their kindred folk in deep duck
distress and rescued the duck
And in that, there's a mes-
sage for the others who want to

outrageous," said Ana Faya of
her suspicion that Cuba and
Venezuela might unite one
of these days. After all, the
senior analyst at the
Canadian Foundation for the
Americas (FOCAL) in
Ottawa pointed out, the idea
of uniting Latin American
countries has been around
since the revolutions of
Bolivar and San Martin
against Spain almost two
centuries ago. And she
certainly knows how Cuban
Communists think: for ten
years, until she fled to
Canada in 2000, she was an
official of the Central
Committee of the Cuban
Communist Party.
The Cuban regime's biggest
problem by far is: who succeeds
Fidel Castro? The official
answer is his youngest brother
Raul, currently vice-president
and defence minister, but
ideologically committed Cuban
Communists still have problems
with the idea that political
power can be inherited. They
also suspect Raul of being soft
on capitalism.
Fidel Castro has had a
remarkably rapid recovery from
a fall last October that broke his
arm and shattered his kneecap
in eight places, but he will turn

80 next August. He has ruled
Cuba for 46 years, but he will
soon have to be replaced. If the
revolution is to survive, his
replacement had better be a man
with contemporary
revolutionary credentials, a man
with the charisma and resources

to keep the show on the road.
A man, perhaps, like Hugo
Chavez is Venezuelan, not
Cuban, but that may not be as
big a problem as it seems.
Many people on the left in
Latin America, including
'Bolivarians' like Chavez and
most of the Marxists, have
always seen the division of the
region into more than a dozen
Spanish-speaking countries as a

misfortune, not a law of nature.
Cuba and Venezuela are already
closely tied economically and
politically, and Chavez, though
neither a Communist nor a
dictator, shares Castro's social
goals and his hostility to the
United States. It just might
As an analyst, Ana Faya
monitors what senior people in
the Cuban regime and in the
governments of neighboring
countries are saying in public,
because it probably bears some
relationship, however distant, to
their real intentions. And here is
what she has been hearing
On October 5, 2005, at the
signing of the 6th Joint
Commission on the
Comprehensive Cooperation
Agreement between Cuba and
Venezuela, Cuban Vice President
Carlos Lage Divila said: "Our
country has been accused of not
having a democracy, but in
events like this one, we realise
that we are one of the most
democratic countries of the
world, because we have two
presidents, Fidel and Chavez."
And Chavez replied: "Cuba and
Venezuela have joined together,
and at this point, the world
should know that our fate is
sealed, that these two
homelands, which deep down
are one, are opening a new road
at whatever cost."

It could be just the usual
windy rhetoric, but suppose it
isn't. Suppose there actually is
a plan to unite the two
countries, with Chavez and
Castro as co-presidents, and to
leave Hugo Chavez in power
over both countries when Fidel,
30 years his senior, finally dies.
"Castro has the power and the
credibility," Faya noted. "It's a
real possibility." But, she added:
"It should take place while
(Fidel) Castro is still in charge."
It's certainly not a plan that
would appeal to Raul.
Where would Castro have
got such a radical idea? One of
his political idols as a young
man was the Egyptian
revolutionary Gamal Abdel
Nasser (whom he met soon after
taking power on his famous trip
to New York in 1960). And at
that time, 'Nasser was busy
uniting Egypt, Syria and Libya
in the United Arab Republic. It
didn't last very long, but that
doesn't mean that a similar
experiment in Spanish-speaking
America would also be doomed
to failure. One great attraction
of a political merger with
Venezuela for Castro is that
Cuba would suddenly gain
access to the cash flow and the
political clout of a major oil
As for Chavez, his motives

America from Spanish rule

give rest to my arm nor respite

to my soul until I.have broken
the chains that oppress us by
the will of the Spanish power."
Chavez declared that
Venezuelans "should not rest
their arms or their souls until we
have broken the chains that
oppress our people due to the

SUNDAY CHRONICLE October 23, 2005 9


I HAVE noted that the decibel
level has gone up in the
Opposition camp about this
issue of access to the State
Media and the much-needed
Broadcast legislation.
On both of these issues, the
full facts have been presented by
the government and one runs
the risk of sounding like a stuck
compact disc. But with the
Opposition hell-bent on
misrepresenting the truth, these
facts will have to be repeated.
Judging from the tone and
glaring misrepresentation of the
facts by sections of the media
(more recently the Kaieteur
News) there seems to be a
burning desire to score political
points rather than to have these
matters discussed sensibly.

Any reader or viewer of
either the Guyana Chronicle or
NCN would confirm the
frequent appearances of the
PNCR opposition and its
leaders in/on these outlets.
To suggest that there is an
agreement for the PNCR and
Government to have equal
access to the State media
contradicts the May 6, 2003
communique signed between the
President and the Leader of the
Opposition which is pellucid on
the issue: Equitable access

(based on Parliamentary
representation) to the State-
owned media by all
Parliamentary parties (as
distinct from Government)
would be instituted without
undue delay). And on September
17, 2003, the Follow-Up
Statement issued in the wake of
the discussions between the
President and the Leader of the
Opposition stated: The
representatives of the President
and the Leader of the
Opposition will meet on
Wednesday September 17,
2003 to consider both their
proposals for giving effect to
the commitment for equitable
access by political parties (as
distinct from Government) to
the State media. It must be
pointed out that at the time
when the PNCR aborted the
constructive engagement
process there was NO
agreement on the allocation of
time. But even in the absence of
such an agreement, the
Opposition parliamentary
parties have had access to the
State media and continue to do
so. Also, the state media
account for only a section of the
media landscape.

The Broadcast legislation

has been stalled because once
again the main opposition party
has torpedoed the mechanism to


resolve differences over the
draft. There is clear evidence
that the administration was
moving swiftly to have this Bill
presented in the National
A chronology of events on
this would explain.
The joint committee report
on the media laid out the general
parameters for the drafting of
the Broadcast legislation. The
Attorney General's Chambers
drafting section then used those
parameters and studied
legislation from other countries
to present a draft.
This draft was published in


* Agricultural land (approx. 6 acres) situate on the left bank
of Powder Flask, Mahaica Creek, East Coast Demerara.

* Prime Residential land (along Public Road) situate at Lot 43,
Section B. No. 73 Village, Corentyne, Berbice, with well-kept
modern one flat concrete building and enclosure
(approx. 150 sq. ft.) below. Gazebo in front of building.

* Commercial ,/ residential house lots numbered:

* 49 vacant roadside lot with concrete surface
51, 52, 150 and 151 (land only)
53 with two storey wooden and concrete office building
148 with defunct Rice Bond

situate in No. 72 Village. Upper Corentyne, Berbice

* Residential land (4,428 sq. ft.) situate at Lot 57 Lima,
West of Public Road, Essequibo Coast with
two storey concrete and wooden building
(top flat 1,104 sq. ft.: bottom flat 1,104 sq. ft.)


* Residential land (5,550 sq. ft.) Situate at Lot 58,
No. 0 Village (in the 52 to 72 NDC) Corentyne, Berbice,
with two storey wooden building
(top flat 288 sq. ft.: bottom flat 81 sq ft.)

the daily newspapers, not only
in the State media, and members
of the public and other
stakeholders were invited
to submit suggestions.
None was ever received.
The PNCR, in the
meantime, protested
about the draft, claiming
that it deviated from the
joint committee's report
on the general parameters.
The President, in
seeking to find consensus,
agreed to a government-
opposition team
discussing the legislation
to reconcile differences.
There were three meetings
and then the main
opposition did not reply
to the final set of comments by
the Government side on
reaching consensus. Therefore,
the process was again stalled by
the Opposition.
The Government, lest it
be accused of unilateralism,
did not proceed to table the
draft in the absence of
consensus, especially since it
was born out of the joint
committee process. Now, the


likelihood of the Government
being unilateral with
Broadcast legislation does
not exist. The considerable
work of the Task Force and
the numerous stakeholders,
in a sensitive area as media,
precludes this type of action,
at this time.
It is the resolve of both the
Government and the PNCR not
to deal with the dialogue
matters bilaterally but to take
them to Parliament which will
be the sole arbiter.
Also, the government still
remains fully committed to de-
monopolisation of radio
broadcasting in Guyana. That
has long been its policy and
objective. But this has to be
done in the context of the long-
awaited Broadcast legislation.
And those who suggest that
the administration is
responsible for its stalling the
broadcast legislation should
look impartially at the facts. In
fact, it is the opposition which
benefits from the current
unprofessionalism, recklessness
and hate-mongering which
obtain in certain sections of the

media. Who would gain most
from a talk-show host on
Channel Nine on October 17
lauding the killings, robberies
and savagery emanating from

Ii [speIN after [F11Gt~rs~

By Sir Ronald Sanders
(the writer is a former
Caribbean diplomat, now
business executive, who
publishes widely on Small
States in the global

A GLIMMER of hope that the
rich nations of the world may,
at last, act to help poorer
countries to carry out recon-
struction after national disas-
ters, has suddenly appeared.
It is long overdue. And,
nothing may yet come of it.
But, it is a relief to learn
that Britain and France have
agreed to finance the first stages
of a facility at the International
Monetary Fund (IMF) from
which poor countries, affected
by natural disasters, oil price
rises or sharp fall in prices for
their main exports, could draw.
If the facility becomes a re-
ality Belize, Dominica, Guyana,
Grenada, St Kitts-Nevis, St
Lucia and St Vincent & the
Grenadines should immediately
qualify for help. With the pro-
posed drop in prices for sugar
exports and the existing decline
in preferential access for banana
exports to the European Union

(EU), the steep rise in the price
of oil, and the natural disasters
they have all endured, they
should be immediate candidates
for benefits.
To a lesser extent, so too
should every other country in
the Caribbean except, arguably,
Trinidad and Tobago because of
its own oil revenues.
Two senior British Minis-
ters, Gordon Brown the Chan-
cellor of Exchequer and Hilary
Benn the Secretary of State for
International Development,
jointly revealed that they expect.
such a facility "should be set up
immediately when the IMF
board meets on 31st October".
The British Ministers may
be being too optimistic.
Developing countries
have heard expressions of
these expectations and un-
dertakings before, only to see
them dashed by the foot-drag-
ging and back-sliding of many
nations with the wherewithal
to contribute.
Significantly, Ministers
Brown and Benn said, "oil-pro-
ducing countries should contrib-
ute when the managing-director
(of the IMF), Rodrigo Rato,
visits the Gulf states this week".
It would be a marvellous

act of pure humanitarianism if
the oil-producing countries,
which are raking in revenues at
a high cost to poor countries,
would indeed make substantial
contributions to such a facility.
But, the facility may be try-
ing to satisfy too many needs,
and, in doing so, may end up
being yet another damp squib
and not the explosion of ben-
efits it ought to be.
Each of the needs it seeks
to satisfy is important. How-
ever, funds to cope with natu-
ral disasters alone is now ur-
gent, and therefore, anything
more is better than the little that
currently exists,
Nothing emphasises this
more than the 2005 Atlantic
Hurricane season which wit-
nessed the naming of 21 storms
and 12 hurricanes, the last of
which, Wilma, became the most
powerful of the season a Cat-
egory 5 and, as I write this,
has already killed 12 people in
Haiti and Jamaica, wreaked mil-
lions of dollars of havoc in
Mexico, is bearing down on
Florida and, yet again, on the
western part of Cuba.
At the end of its journey of
terror through the Caribbean and
the US, it will undoubtedly

leave in its wake millions of dol-
lars in damage and considerable
loss of life.
All damage and any loss of
life are matters for concern. In
this connection, the destruction
wrought by Hurricanes Katrina
and Rita, and the lives that they
ended in dreadful circumstances
or adversely affected in the US,
tear at the emotions of all
mankind. But, at least the US
has the means to cope with re-
construction of property and
the rebuilding of lives; small
countries in the Caribbean sim-
ply do not.
Weeks after the passage
of Katrina, the US govern-
ment was still paying US$4
million a night to keep
200,000 people in
hotels. Such a thing would be
beyond the wildest fantasies
of any Caribbean govern-
And this is the point. Small
and vulnerable Caribbean coun-
tries which are hurricane-prone
need the means to help them
prepare for disasters and rebuild
after them.
Over the last 30 years, the
seven countries of the OECS
ranked in the top 10 in the
world in terms of natural disas-
ter events per square mile.
In 1995, after Hurricane
Luis wiped out three years of
Antigua and Barbuda's Gross
Domestic Product (GDP) in
36 agonising and destructive
hours, the Prime Minister at
the time, Lester Bird, ap-
pealed to then President of
the World Bank, James
Wolfensohn, to establish a
post-disaster fund to help
small countries to rebuild.
The Bank did set up a
programme as did the IMF, but
both were limited in scope and
size, slow in disbursing funds
and meagre in what they could
deliver. The result is that today
there is still no meaningful fund
upon which poor countries can
call to help their rebuilding ef-

As an example, over a 20-
year period in the 1980s and
1990s, the World Bank funded
post-disaster projects world-
wide to the tune of US$14 bil-
lion. When it is considered that
large countries such as
Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, India and
other developing nations would
have competed with the Carib-
bean for a share of what would
have amounted to less than
US$1 billion a year over the 20-
year period, the region obvi-
ously got very small crumbs
from the pie.
The donations of friendly
governments and agencies also
hardly relieve the heavy losses
incurred by hurricanes. As ex-
amples, a study shows that af-
ter the 1995 hurricane season,
pledges and grants to Dominica
constituted about 40 per cent of
storm damage; and in Grenada,
after the notorious Hurricane
Ivan of 2004, pledges amounted
to only 20 per cent of the dam-
Clearly then, Caribbean
countries cannot and should not
depend on the good nature of
governments and charities to
help them to reconstruct. Nor
should they have to.
What they need is exactly
what the two British Minis-
ters described in their joint
paper published on October
20 in the International Her-
ald Tribune, and that is: "a
new shocks facility at the
IMF (in which) money should
be frontloaded, fast disburs-
ing and readily accessible".
The Ministers put the mat-
ter in sharp context when, in ac-
knowledging this year's cata-
logue of natural disasters, they
said: "the world needs to get
better at delivering humanitarian
aid and carrying out reconstruc-
tion... international institutions
need to improve the prepared-
ness, speed of action and coor-
dination of response".
It was heartening to learn

from Ministers Brown and Benn
that in addition to the facility
which they expect the IMF
board to establish on October
31, the new President of the
World Bank, Paul Wolfowitz,
recognized that a dedicated fa-
cility for responding to shocks
is worthy of consideration. The
Ministers have called on the
Bank to produce proposals for
additional financing for disaster
We have to hope that the
recognition by ministers in rich
and influential nations will fi-
nally propel both the IMF and
the World Bank to establish the
dedicated facilities that are nec-
And they should not be
facilities on which
governments alone can draw.
There is good argument for a
similar facility at the
International Finance
Corporation from which
private sector organizations
can draw to rebuild at higher
standards that could limit
future storm damage.
It is left to be seen whether
or not the IMF and the World
Bank will establish these pro-
posed new facilities. If they do,
poor countries, prone to natu-
ral disasters, will compete with
each other for funds. Given the
larger size of many of them, the
lion's share will not come to the

spoke with him, he dug into a
huge mass of tangled seine with
both hands. He separated two
to three yards from the
heap; patiently straightened out
,that part of the seine by width
and length, then dove into the
pile again to liberate a few more
yards .
.. At that rate, and with some
help from his colleagues, he
hopes to be able to untangle the
entire seine by the middle of

next week and to be back on the
Ocean bN weekend.
On Tuesday. in the after-
math of the storm. many of the
hard-hit fi-hermen had indicated
that they would have ceased
operations for a while to allow
the unusually violent spring
tides to run their course. ..
Noting that the ocean had
calmed down somewhat since
last Monday, a few have how-,
ever since ventured out from
Friday and are now doing busi-
ness as usual.
Fishermen along the coast
use the drift seine system and
can catch as much as 1 500
pounds of fish on a good day.,:
Their activity is usually
cost-efficient since they use
sail boats and do not have
need to purchase fuel for
their operations.

Speaking at a church service
two Sundays ago in the Eastern
Caribbean island to mark the
anniversary of the bombing, His
Excellency Jose Alvarez Portela
described the downing of the
airliner off the west coast of
Barbados as a "cruel and
repulsive act of terrorism" and
a "premeditated and heinous
He said: "The main
culprits, Luis Posada Carriles
and Orlando Bosh, have
never been brought to trial or
sanctioned. Mr. Posada
Carriles, a self confessed and
convicted terrorist who had
entered US territory secretly
and illegally is now in that
country installed in a
comfortable and privileged
location in El Paso, Texas, in
. collusion with the
authorities....The Bolivarian
Republic of Venezuela has
requested his extradition ..."
Mr. Portela referred to the
unjust detention of five Cuban
nationals in the U.S. for
struggling against teriorismn as
"an example of' double
standards". S
The Cuban Ambassador

continued: "On this occasion, I
want to make a call to all men
and women who dream of a
better world, a world of justice,
peace and free dom to demand
the immediate and unconditional
release of the :ive Cubans apnd
to call for the extradition of
Posada Car iles to the
Bolivarian Republic of
Venezuela so that he may be
tried for his crimes which have
so far gone unpunished."
Honorary Consul of
Guyana to arbados, Mr.
Norman Faria represented
the Guyana government at
the service, wiich was held at
thelPaynes lay Methodist
Church. In his remarks,
Faria said "Terrorism,
which targets innocent

the placing of bombs in the

New home a 'tremendous...

From page 11
he said, "you were able to ran
over to Guyana Stores and
Fogarty's. Now you can't..so
that is the only problem."
He, however, likes the quiet
of the East Coast neighbourhood,
which is so unlike the city which
is always bustling with traffic
and where finding parking space
is always a problem. "It's so
easy now this side," Grimes said.
Like Grimes, Parbati Jairam,
who has been with the
organisation 11 years and is a
stenographer within the
Organisational Development
Programme, feels the move has
its advantages and disadvan-
"The new building is very

spacious; comfortable in a lot
of ways. One of the things I
enjoy here is the parking fa-
cility because, even if I come
late, I can rest assured that
there is a parking space. It's
also a lot safer because I lost
a car last year...my car was
stolen outside of the Bank of
Guyana. So I feel secure here
for parking."
The thing she misses most,
however, is the convenience of
being downtown, even though
she lives just up the road, at
Plaisance, about two miles away
from Liliendaal, which ought to
make getting to work a breeze
for her.
"Although it's closer to
home," she contends, "it's
still far from the convenience

in Georgetown because I have
children at school at two dif-
ferent locations in
Georgetown. So I have to do
drop-offs in the mornings,
and pick-ups in the after-
There is also the grocery to
pick up from Fogarty's, and the
little errands to run at the Post
Office.. .and the Bank.
"I miss those conveniences,"
the mother of two said, adding:
"I wish here in this new location
we had a banking facility...I1
wish we had a canteen...we have
to walk with our lunches....and
even if we don't have lunches to
bring in the mornings, your lunch
hour is just one hour, so you
can't go out to have something
and come back. I miss small
things like a pharmacy and those
kinds of facilities."
There is also the little mat-
ter of what to do with one's kids
on days when there is no-one at
home to baby-sit them.
"There are days when I
don't have anybody at home to
look at my son...like on days
when there is half-day school.
And if I have to bring him here,
there is no way that he can stay
with me...there is no place here
for children. At the other loca-
tion, we were allowed to have

our kids with us. If we are work-
ing late, they sit near to us in
our office...but that's not al-
lowed now. We also need a rest
room in case somebody is not
feeling well and they want to lie
down for a half hour or so. There
is nowhere here that you can go
and do that. At Bank of Guyana,
you had sofas...long ones that

you could go and relax in the la-
dies' rest room.... So in essence,
we have gained a few things but
we have lost some in the
process...but we're hoping that
with time these oversights will
be addressed."
Asked what she thought
about the ambience, Jairam said:

"Now that we have every-
one under the same
roof... well... almost everyone
because we still have some of
our colleagues at High Street.. .in
Barbados at the CSME office
and in Trinidad at the CCJ.. .we
see each other every day and it's
more comfortable. I spent 11
years in the organisation and I
didn't know about 35 per cent
of the staff. Now I'm here, I'm
seeing them...this is something
I like very much.. .our getting to
know each other."
Says Nigel Lewis, a statis-
tics clerk who has been with the
organisation eight years:
"It's quite comfortable
...more spacious..The only prob-
lem is transportation from

He lives in South Ruimveldl
Gardens. Said he: "One of the
advantages of being up here is
that it is very quiet. It's also a
much more modern
complex... the facilities are very
much up-to-date...it's a new
building.. :chances are that things
work better. One of the things

most staff have complaints
about, however, is the lack of a

TOMORROW is the 60th Anniversary of the United
Nations. Over the years, many Guyanese have joined the
ranks of hundreds of thousands who have dedicated their
time and effort to this institution, making sure that the
work continues.
Guyanese in the UN have occupied, and still do, a range of
posts at various levels. They make their contribution to the in-
valuable work of the UN and they have bettered themselves in
doing so.
Today and tomorrow, we present to you four such Guyanese
who have served or contributed to the work of the UN in a sig-
nificant way.

Dr. Rudy Insanally
Samuel Rudolph (Rudy) Insanally is a career diplomat with
his academic groundings at Queen's College, University College
of the West Indies (UWI before it became UWI), London Uni-
versity, the University of Paris and the University of Belgium.
His main areas of academic study were International Relations
and Foreign Languages. Before entering the foreign service of a
newly independent Guyana at the age of 30, Insanally taught

'If the United Nations did not exist, if we could get
rid of it today with the snap of a finger, it would be
necessary for us tomorrow to invent it.' Former
President of the UN General Assembly, Foreign Af-
fairs Minister, Dr. Rudy Insanally

French and Spanish in Jamaica
and Guyana at both the second-
ary and tertiary levels.
Insanally served as Consular
at this country's emba ss in
Washington DC, from 1966 to
1969, being appointed as Charge
D'Affaires at Guyana's mission
in Caracas, Venezuela. Insanally
got his first taste of the UN
when he was transferred to
Guyana's Permanent Mission i
the United Nations in the post
of Deputy Permanent Represen-
tative, in 1972. During the one
year he spent at the mission, DR. RUDYINSANALLY
Insanally took an active part in
the negotiations for the Second Development Decade Strategy.
He returned to Venezuela later that year, this time as
full Ambassador to that country, with concurrent accredi-
tation to Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. He did not abandon
the Caribbean region, however, taking time to participate
in the work of CARICOM, the Organisation of American
States (OAS), the Economic Commission for Latin America
and the Caribbean (ECLAC), aid the Caribbean Develop-
ment and Cooperation Committee (CDCC). He also dedi-
cated some of his time to working with the Latin Ameri-
can Economic System (SELA).
In 1978, Insanally took a hop across the oceans when
he was posted as this country's Permanent Representative
to the European Economic Community in Brussels (where
he spent some of his formative academic years), serving as
Ambassador to Belgium and non-resident Ambassador to
Austria, Norway and Sweden. Insanally's posting in Brus-
sels conveniently placed him to play a substantial part in
the Second Lomi Convention between the EEC and the Af-

served as Chairman of the Sugar Sub-Committee, as well
as Chairman for the Trade Sub-Committee for the nego-
tiation of a Protocol to provide for the enlargement of the
Community. As the negotiation process was winding up,
Insanally was appointed Special Rapporteur for the Joint

Insanally returned to Guyana serving as Head of the Politi-
cal Division covering the Western Hemisphere in the Ministry
of Foreign Affairs. Staying true to his spirit of multi-tasking, he
also served as roving High Commissioner to several Caribbean
countries, and in his old capacity as non-resident Ambassador
to Colombia. In 1987, he was appointed as Permanent Repre-
sentative to the UN, a post he holds to this day. This has given
him the opportunity to lead Guyana's delegation to UN Gen-
eral Assembly on several occasions.
It was in 1993, that Insanally was elected as President of
the 48th Session of the UN General Assembly. During that time,
he also presided over the World Hearings on Development held
at UN Headquarters.
Between his time as President of the UN General As-

sembly to the present, Insanally continues to add exem-
plary credentials to his CV, while of course serving his coun-
try ably. He has chaired the Group of 77 in 1999, while
between 1994 to 2001, he served as Chancellor to Univer-
sity of Guyana. In May of 2001, Insanally assumed the
position of Minister of Foreign Affairs.
In his presentation at the CARICOM 30th Anniversary Con-
ference held in October 2003 at UWI Mona Campus under the
theme 'Regional Governance and Integrated Development',
Guyana's present Minister of Foreign Affairs, S.R. 'Rudy'
Insanally had this to say about the United Nations:
"By comparison with its ill-fated predecessor, the League
of Nations which disintegrated into a morass of political diffi-
culties, the United Nations has shown a remarkable resilience in
overcoming the many challenges that have faced it over the years.
There can be no doubt that, by any yardstick, the United Na-
tions has acquitted itself creditably in its tasks and that
multilateralism, as exemplified in its operation, has been a most
helpful principle in inter-state relations."
That presentation speech was entitled 'Multilateralism in In-
ternational Relations Past Practice and Future Promise' and is
a classic example of why there has been a sort of semi-mytho-
logical aura that has, in the Caribbeandespecially, built up around
Rudy Insanally.
Rudy Insanally's has long and distinguished service to his
country. He has accumulated a fair amount of abbreviations af-
ter his.name: he has a Golden Arrow of Achievement (A.A.); an
Order of Roraima (O.R); and the Cacique Crown of Honour
(CCH). Territorial tensions notwithstanding, the Government of
Venezuela awarded him, in 1978, an Order of the Liberator (Gran
As a member of the Executive Board of the International As-
sociation of Permanent Representatives and of the Council of
Presidents of the General Assembly and as Guyana's Foreign
-Affairs Minister Insanally continues to take avid interest in
:the UN's affair.
He believes that there is urgent need for radical reform
in the system, reform that goes beyond superficial tinker-
ing and stop-gap measures. He believes that there needs to
be democratisation of the UN Security Council, to more
accurately reflect the post Cold War balance of power en-
vironment. Chairman of the 1993 Working Group on the
Reform of the Security Council, Insanally believes that
smaller countries are asking for a greater role in global se-
curity decisions, while some permanent members of the
council are reluctant to relinquish some of the trappings of
power that come with their status. Like the power of the
veto for example. He also thinks that only radical reforms
to the system can meaningfully address and aid to accom-
plish the UN's Agenda for Development.
Despite his criticisms of the UN, however, he doesn't be-
lieve that it can be extracted from world affairs, its role being
central to the betterment of the world as a whole, the develop-
ing world in particular.
"If the United Nations did not exist," Insanally opines,
drawing on Voltaire's assessment of the need for God, "if
we could get rid of it today with the snap of a finger, it would
be necessary for us tomorrow to invent it."

Jocelyn Dow
It is said that a woman's work
is never done. When Jocelyn'
Dow was first formally intro-
duced to the United Nations in
1991, the businesswoman and
activist had been through more
than the average person would -
expect. Throughout the seventies .;
and eighties, her outspoken vocal
criticism of the government of the .
day had resulted in her being im- -
prisoned several times and sev- -
eral business ventures being shut -'
In 1991, Dow was invited JOCELYN DOW
by the UWI professor Peggy
Antrobus to join an international alliance bringing women
together from both the North and South developmental
zones under the umbrella of Women's Environment and De-
velopment Organisation (WEDO), a movement founded by
US Congresswoman Bella Abzug. Around 1 500 women
from 83 countries met in Miami, USA under the name
World Women's Congress for a Health Planet trying to
come up with a document that would be sent to Rio for
the UN Conference on Environment and Development
(UNCED), popularly dubbed the Earth Summit, held in Rio
De Janeiro, Brazil in 1992.
That conference showed the businesswoman twomainthings:

the first, that what she calls a "separate space" could be cre-
ated in which people try to work out their differences and
synchronise their various agendas for the greater good; and sec-
ondly, she much to her surprise really enjoyed the complex -
process behind the negotiations that went on at the conference.
By the time the final document the Women's Action
Agenda 21 for a Healthy Planet was produced, that process
of negotiation and arriving at a consensus had broadened Dow's
concept of her activism from a narrow national one, to one which
encompassed a more global scope.
Dow was appointed a member of both the Caribbean
team, as well as the international team which took Agenda
21 to the UN Earth Summit. It should be noted that along
with Dow, Antrobus, and Abzug one other notable woman
representing Agenda 21 at the Summit Kenyan environ-
mental activist Wangari Maathai, who went on to win 2004
Noble Peace Prize for her work planting trees as a way of
preventing conflict over scarce natural resources. At the
time, civil society was. only just becoming a valid voice
within the UN; a woman-centred, woman-sponsored civil
society initiative was virtually unheard of.
"When women started negotiating," Dow says proudly, "I
think there were one or two references to women in the regional
document. We ended up with a significant chapter I think it's
called Chapter 24 of the Earth Summit; and a principle, in the
Rio Principles, that spoke to the centrality of women in man-
aging natural resources and women were mainstdhamed through-
out that document."'
According to Dow, that was a heady time with a wave of
democracy set to sweep the world after the collapse of the So-
viet Union (Guyana had its first free and fair elections in 1992);
and the beginning of the involvement of grassroots, civil soci-
ety NGOS and other non-state actors in decision-making pro-
cesses of the United Nations under the auspices of the UN Eco-
nomical and Social Council (ECOSOC) and UNCED.
Dow says that Summit Chairman and former Chairman of
the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP), Cana-'
dian Maurice Strong encouraged an inclusivity at the conference.
which served as a basic blueprint of how the UN would engage
civil society from then on.
To use a metaphor that she most likely would agree
with, the formulation of Agenda 21 in Miami, along with
its subsequent successful representation in Rio, provided
a sort of birth or rebirth for Dow; she went from be-
ing one of the founding members of the local Women's
Group Red Thread, to the Presidency of WEDO after the
passing of Abzug in 1998.
From her experience on the international scene, work-
ing with women both locally and across the world, Dow is
a true believer that the-female of the species hold unique
keys to responding to some of the world's worst crises.
Women, she says, are usually the poorest of the poor, a sort
of lowest common denominator when it comes to the hu-
man development index. According to Dow, while there are
different degrees to which women possess power in differ-
ent societies around the world, there is a commonality of
experience which they all go though due to the overarching
patriarchy of the world system.
For Dow, women's work finds one engaging in a variety of
related issues. She is passionate about the role of the UN in
providing a space for discussion and resolution of these issues,
some of which would not otherwise see the light of day.
"In my country," Dow once said in a 2000 radio talk
programme on the UN, "the United Nations is a very impor-
tant institution on a daily basis. It is the lead place for us to
discuss governance. It is the lead place for women to argue for
the right to participate in our governance structures, to a cer-
tain place in our economy, to fight against violence, to deal with
all of the issues. It's not some place down on First Avenue. It
is, in fact, our only reservoir of hope and advocacy against gov-
ernments who are far too happy to trot off in the market direc-
tion. We have an enormous decline in the capacity of most coun-
tries to survive. Women are at the bottom of this."
This does not mean that she is uncritical of the UN itself.
She admits to having spoken openly and harshly against UN
policy. These criticisms are not to be taken personally but for
what Dow meant them to be: constructive commentary by a
true believer in the UN.
In 2002, Annan appointed Dow to serve on a spe-
cial three-person panel. She is currently on the Sec-
retary-General's Advisory Board on Water and Sani-
tation. She admits not being a water nor sanitation
expert being slightly baffled that she was chosen for
the post. Dow thinks that her primary qualifications
on this board are her apprehension ironical coming
from a successful businesswoman about the corpo-
rate influence at the UN; and her experience, 13 years
worth, in what she refers to as the "process of

This is my first report to you as shareholders since my appointment as your Chairman
on April 16, 2005 and I am very pleased to inform you that our Bank continued
to make good progress recording another successful Financial Year ended September
30, 2005.

Profit after tax increased by 47.45% to G$791.0 from the G$536.4 million recorded
in 2004. The focus of the Management and Staff on customer service and control
of expenses continues to yield positive results.

Your Board of Directors has approved a 'final dividend of $0.80 per stock
unit which when added to the interim dividend of $0.25 per stock unit brings the
total dividend for the financial year to $1.05 per stock unit. This represents a payout
of 40% of net profit and an increase of 40% over the last year's payment.

All businesses require a stable economic environment in which to operate if they are
, to make progress and attain the objectives of their owners and shareholders. In this
respect the Bank is no different. Given a stable economic climate we look forward
to another successful year ih 2006.

H UNDREDS of young Salvationists in the
Guyana Division of the Salvation Army
were recently given the road map for
empowerment to become effective witnesses for
Christ, and good examples for other youths to
The occasion was the Church's Youth Empowerment
meeting held at Hotel Tower, and addressed by listingg
Territorial Chief Secretary, Lieutenant Colonel Raphael Mason
of Jamaica.
Mason pointed to the many issues confronting the nation's
youth and added that bombarded as they are with temptations of
various kinds, on their own they are completely ineffective. What
is needed, he stressed, is for them to become "plugged in" to Christ
- the only true source of their empowerment.
He alluded to the very real scenario of sexuality among
young people, and cautioned the youthful gathering to leave
nothing to chance. Regardless of good intentions, he noted,
unless infused with "supernatural empowerment", it can be

SUNDAY CHRONICLE October 23, 2005 21

IN O1R last column, we clas-
sified agricultural biotechnol-
ogy broadly into the follow-
ing with brief descriptions of
what those types of biotech-
nologies entail. We recap
here with some additional ex-
ampl es Of the products, of the
various technologies:

1.! Crop biotechnology
(plant biotechnology) where
crops such as corn, rice and to-
matdes are manipulated through
varitis techniques !for desired
traits and value. For example,
herbicide tolerance, pest resis-
tance, alt tolerance,; drought tol-
erance, high yield," high nutri-
tionai value, longer shelf-life,
better food processing qualities,
and so on.
2. Animal biotechnology --
where farm animals such as
sheep, cattle, pigs,: poultry are
manipulated biotechnologically
for disease resistance, increased
meat and or milk production, in-
creased wool production, in-
creased laying of !nutrient en-
riched eggs. Other examples in-
clude,: breeding healthier, dis-
ease-r sisttnt farm animals. .
3. Fungal biotechnology -
where edible mushrooms of de-
sired taits are technologically
manipulated. Examples include
the use of biotechnology to en-
hance 4iutitive value, produc-
tion of Oatural products of medi-
cal and ve.terina4y value in
higher Uiantities! than natural,
genetically engineered yeast, a
fungus, thbett fermentation
yield qualities as well as bakers
yea t wiph improved leavening
and product texture qualities
4. Algdl biotechnology -
whe e algae (seaweed) of com-
mercial i#portane are manipu-
lated for desired kaits and yield.
It is noteworthy that the source
of c rageinan eniulsifiers in ice
cream n is seaweeds. Additional
exa ples includeI the extraction
and Niosy thesis :of algal com-
pou ds oi[ pharmaceutical and
indu trial importance most no-

tably alginates usqd in the food
industry as thick hing, gelling
and stabilizing agents, and in the
pharmaceutical iidtustry in the
manufacture of l"'w-release"
tablets as well as inithe formu-
lation of various aItacids. Ex-
ample of hn antc d is Pepto
Bismol. |
5. Nitrogen fi caion biotech-
nology -'where t i capacity of
legumes or the tean family
plants to prbduc4 their own ni-
trate or urea fertilisation through
a natural association with bac-
'teria capable of converting at-
mospheric nitrogen into ammo-
nia the Rhizolilm bacterium
- can be manipulIted by isolat-
ing more efficiefit types of such
bacteria, multiplying them in a
test-tube under laboratory .con-
ditions, and artificially introduc-
ing them into plant roots.
6. "Pharmirig" biotechnol-
ogy where plants are engi-
neered to produce drugs, phar-
maceuticals and vaccines other-
wise produced in humans, ani-
mals or bacteria. This modem
agricultural biotechnology is
used to reduce the cost of indus-
trial productio4i. Examples'here
include the isolation and intro-
duction of the" human gene re-
sponsible for the production of
the. enzyme Lysozyme into rice
for indusmal production of the
enzyme from rice plants. An-
other is the. insertion of the
gene that allows goats to pro-
duce milk containing "tissue
plasminogen activators\(TPA),"
an important drug which can
dissolve blood clots in heart at-
tack victims;
7. Aquapulture biotechnol-
ogy similar to the means by
which high yielding Tilapia and
Salmon have been produced.
The use of biotechnology to de-
velop the large GM Coho
salmon is an example.

We need to bear in mind a
transgenic crop plant contains a
gene or genes which h have been
artificially, inserted instead of

the plant acquiring them
through pollination. The in-
serted gene sequence (known as
the transgene) may come from
another unrelated plant, or from
a completely different species.
Transgenic Bt corn GM corn
with the gene for the insect
toxin, Cry inserted, for example,
which produces its own insec-
ticide, contains a gene from a
bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis.
The overall benefits of
these technologies in agriculture
have been summarised as fol-
o Enhanced taste and qual-
o Reduced maturation time
o Increased nutrients,
yields, and stress tolerance
o Improved resistance to
disease, pests, and herbicides
o New products and grow-
ing techniques
o Increased resistance, pro-
ductivity, hardiness, and feed
o Better yields of meat,
.eggs, and milk ;t
o Improved animal health
and diagnostic methods
o "Friendly" bioherbicides
and bioinsecticides i
o Conservation of soil, wa-
ter, and energy
o Bioprocessingfor forestry
o Better natural waste man-'
o More efficient processing
o Increased food security
for growing populations.;
As noted in the first article
in this series, sqme transgenic
food crops unde field trials and
commercial prod.ictio4 in devel-
oping countries today include:
Beans Ptato

Cauliflower Rice I

Candidly addressing the
dangers of sex before marriage,
and putting up a case for
abstinence among youth, he
warned them to be wise, adding
that: "... five minutes of
pleasure can lead to a whole life
of regret."
There are many ways in
which. their actions can
positively impact and influence
other young people, he told the
attentive gathering. The Chief

Secretary noted that many other
young people today are looking
for role models, and charged the
young Salvationists to fill this
Admonishing them to
realise and maximise their
potentials before it is too late,
he pointed out that many
cemeteries today are filled with
potential, because the owners of
such potential died with them.
A true Caribbean man,
having served the Salvation
Army in many countries of the
region, Lieutenant Colonel
Mason was in tune with some
of the problems associated with

youth having himself gone 'off
course'. Putting up a case for
spiritual guidance, told the
keenly enthusiastic gathering:
"You can double the police
force, you can pass all kinds of
laws ... it would not necessarily
make a difference, what is
needed is empowered Christians
like you."
Following the charge, scores
present, infused with new
vigour and convinced of the role
they can play in the lives of
others, made a solemn
recommitment to an active and

Henry spurs Wales to

67-run victory over GCC

A BRILLIANT all-round performance from captain Roger Henry
spurred his team Wales to an emphatic 67-run victory over
Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) in the semi-final of the National
Bank of Industry and Commerce (NBIC) in the Under-15 50-
over Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA) cricket competi-
tion, played yesterday at the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC)
ground in Queenstown.
The right-hander stroked seven fours and hit a top score of 54
in the team's innings and then returned with the ball to grab four
wickets for 30 runs with his off-spin as his team achieved their

victory comfortably against favourites GCC.
After the visitors were asked-to take first strike on a perfect
batting track, they reached a formidable 190 all out in the 45th over
with the skipper getting good contribution from Rudhra
Harripersaud 27 (3x4, 1x6) and Roy Benjamin 20 (2x4).
Bowling for GCC, off-spinner David Dhanramraj and
Permanand Ramkisson had three wickets each.
The losers, in reply, were skittled out for 123 in the 30th
over with the only resistance coming from skipper Jeetendra
Sookdeo with a fighting 64, in which he hit six fours and a
solitary six.
No other batsman reached double figures.
Supporting Roger were off-spinner Krishna Maniram and pacer
Kevin Lindo with three for three and two for 19 respectively.
Wales will now meet Lusignan in the final on Wednesday
at the (GCC) ground, Bourda. (Ravendra Madholall)

By Allan La Rose

THE second staging of the
Fruta Invitational KO foot-
ball tournament will kick off
on Friday November 4. This
was disclosed to the media at
a Press Conference held at
the sponsor's office, Guyana
Beverages Inc. yesterday.
This year the competition
will include invited teams from
outside of the city, unlike the
inaugural competition which
was won last year by Cari Air
Western Tigers. Chairman of
the Tournament committee Ivor
Thompson, a former executive
member of Conquerors, told
the media that the winning
team will collect $500 000 and
the runners-up $200 000, while
third-placers will cash in on
$100 000 and fourth-placers
$50 000.
There will also be a number
of individual prizes up for
grabs, including two scholar-
ships from Global Technology.
General Manager of Guyana
Beverages Inc. Robert Selman in
his remarks said Guyana Bev-
erages Inc. was proud to be as-
sociated with football and
sports on the whole, but urged
teams to show sportsmanship
at all times in the competition
which, according to Selman, is
being sponsored to the tune of
$2.5M, an increase of $500 000

President of the Conquerors
FC, Wayne Forde, in his pre-
sentation said, "The Conquer-
ors FC have enjoyed a very
good relationship with Guyana
Beverages Inc. for many years
now, and this competition is just
another phase in this relation-

ship. We intend to make this
tournament an annual event. We
hope to play most of the
matches on our field in
. The sixteen teams invited
to contest the championship
are: from Georgetown Alpha

ONE of the biggest upsets in
months took place at the Cliff
Anderson Sports Hall on Fri-
day night when underdogs
Police humbled outdoor night
hockey champions Everest 8-
2 in a preliminary round
match of the GT&T competi-
The building was reverber-
ating with loud cheering from
the lawmen's fans all through-
out the game, and this excite-
ment spurred from an awesome
display of talent and agility.
The police players showed
excellent ball control, running
the floor hard playing with
nothing short of 100% inten-
sity. All shots were attempted
as the police team played as if
it were a final. They even con-
verted with sliding shots.
Hero for the side was the
attacking Compton Semple,
who finished with four goals. In
the first half, he inspired his
team with relentless attacks on
their goal.
One of these attacks in the
early minutes of the game car-
ried his team one-up; when a
ball that he hit to the left of the
goal was tapped in by Michael
Bourne. In the last two minutes
of the half, despite the Police

attack, Everest were still able
to score from a short comer off
the sticks of Brian Asregado.
The second half was all
Police as they went scoring-
berserk. Semple scored again
and again and also assisted the

other scorers. One of the high-
lights of the night was his pass
to David McAlman who fin-
ished with a diving shot.
Credit should go to Police
goalie, Jermaine Taylor, who
defended a number of shots.
Along with Semple,
Bourne and McAlman, Kevin
Hope and Junior Phillip also

scored for the winners.
Everest's other goal came
off the stick of Timothy McIn-
Everest, however, like some
of the other teams are playing
short of a few players, who
have been chosen to represent
the national squad.
The National squad, who
are using this competition as
practice in preparation for the
upcoming Pan-American Indoor
Cup, scheduled for Canada in
December, were also a part of
the action on Friday night,
thrashing Old-Fort 10-2 in the
feature clash.
That game however, ended
13 seconds prematurely after
the Old Fort players walked
off, seemingly in protest of a red
card given to one of their bench
players (for disorderly
behaviour) by the referee.
A tight tussle took place be-
tween the two teams in the
early moments of the game, and
it was not until the 12th minute
that Kevin Spencer scored from
the left corner of the goal.
Devin Hooper, who was
very aggressive, became the sec-
ond scorer, flicking the ball right
in front of the goal, but it was
Spencer's night as he converted
twice before the break.
The second half of the game

saw Hooper and Spencer scor-
ing two other goals, to finish the
night with three and five respec-
Other scorers for the win-
ners included Devin Munroe and
Martin Dannett. Scoring for Old
Fort were Aderemi Simon and
Dwight Sullivan.
The evening opened with
GCC defeating Degenerates 8-2.
Phillip Fernandes led with a
triple while Shaka Gill assisted
with a double and Stephen
Fernandes, Patrick Edghill and
Orland Semple one goal each.
For Degenerates, Timothy
Jonas and David Fernandes
found the back of the net.
Game two saw GCC Tigers
trouncing their Cubs 4-0. Goals
were scored by Timica
Fiedtkou, Tiffany Solomon,
Shebiki Baptiste and Sonia
The other female game of
the night was between Everest
and Old Fort which ended at 1-
1. Everest played better than
their opponents but were trail-
ing after Carol Caine scored in
the first half. It was only 11
seconds before the final whistle
that Maria Munroe from a short
corner converted for her team.
The competition is ex-
pected to continue today at
the same venue.

Forde to compete n today's

South American 10 km

Edward B. Beharry
& Company Ltd.

By Isaiah Chappelle
CLEVELAND Forde is back
home. He returned Friday
night in time for the 3rd
South American 10 km Road
Classic, but the Kenyans
were yet to announce their
arrival as athletes of six for-
eign countries had arrived,
Guyana's leading distance
runner, Forde, yesterday, told
Chronicle Sport that he did not
come specifically for the race,
but .his return home was due,
the ticket and visa time being up.
Therefore, he had no special
training for the event, but just
his routine at the High Perfor-
mance Centre in Kenya.
Forde said in his ten-month
stint, he sometimes trained
thrice per day, but most times

By Sherry Bollers-Dixon

AS FAR as hard jobs go, it's. up there with air-traffic control-
ler and crane operator. Stepmothers preside over a minefield
of hidden hurts, half-concealed traditions, and occasional tugs-
of-war. Want the job? Here are some tips to show you around.
You see them at the movies, visiting the zoo, and in restau-
rants. The step mom is wearing a frozen, feeble smile and is a tad
(sometimes a big tad) too young to be their mother. Dad is trying
hard to please everyone, and the children are, well, distant. Actu-
ally, hostile- is a better word. The stepmother hasn't felt this un-
popular since her worst year of junior high. No mother-in-law no
prison matron, for that matter could be as critical of her as other
people's kids.
It's been said that parenting is the toughest job in the world.
Wrong. It's the second toughest: Step-parenting wins hands
down. Right now, approximately half of our community lives in a
stepfamily, which means that everyday, millions of women are sub-
ject to the taunt sometimes mournful, often angry "You're not
my mother!"
My best friend, Bernie, has been a stepmother three times, start-
ing at age 30, and now has two sets of step-grandchildren. I know,
from hard-won experience, that a great relationship with your step-
kids is possible. Despite their occasional resemblance to'feral little
beasts, these are children who've been traumatised and had the bot-

tom drop out of their lives. You didn't make them, didn't break
them, and probably can't fix them but they're kids you can grow
to love and who will love you back. And if you avoid certain trap-
doors like the 12 verboten phrases here, you'll not only get along,
but you'll never have to ask them to pick up their socks.
1. 'Go-ahead, call me Mom!' You're not their mother and you
will never be. They're conflicted enough.and pushing them.to use a
mom-name will only confuse them more. You might eventually be-
come the happiest of stepfamilies, but it won't happen overnight.
Studies show the new family dynamic takes at least three years to
fall into place and the first year is the toughest.
2. 'Feel free! Do whatever you want.' Almost as much as they
need love, children need boundaries and are adrift without rules.
Learn to say (not scream, please) the following phrase: "In this
house, we..." so that time together will not be bogged down with
endless negotiations.

No matter how close in age you are to your stepchildren, you
are still a parent figure; try to be an example of mature living and
not one of the gang. This is especially true if your step-kids belong
to that group of psychotics euphemistically known as teenagers.
Chances are they won't think you're cool for very long.
3. 'I'll get it', 'I'll drive', 'I'll wash it', 'Forget about me' etc.
Don't let your step-kids (or their father) turn you into the crea-

Guyanese in the BVI will have a chance to watch X2 and
VIejra's performances on the 'Deh Pon Vibes' show a few days

"I believe I have what it takes to win the

the Sunday Chronicle.
So how does he feel about competing against Vieira?
I Just proud that there are two Guyanese entries going up;
ihat should keep the other countries on their toes," he laughed.
Dutchin also thanked his family and the Caribbean Star fam-
il.. the Kross Kolor Krew, and the Guyanese throughout the
region for supporting the group.

Jomo, who was in Jamaica, was expected to join the
other half of his group in Antigua yesterday. Vieira was

Caribbean Star Airline Public Relations Officer Barbara Ann
said that Antigua was chosen as the host country because it is
the home of Caribbean Star Airline.
Unlike the past two years, this year's contest,
which is aimed at identifying budding artists who can
become successes regionally and hopefully interna-
tionally, was opened to artists throughout the Carib-
bean. Only participants from Antigua, St. Kitts and

which were won by Antiguans.

ture everyone in the world resents- a mart)r Mart. rs make people

4. 'Why the long face?' Your stepchildren are allowed to be sa
- they're in mourning. Let them grieve if and when they feel like it
Sorry, but they probably will grieve more around you, since you're
the evidence that their parents are never getting back together. Don'
call attention to their sorrow; remove yourself and get Dad to be
mom at this point. Their depression will pass they're kids. .
5. 'Your dad and I always' Don't allude to the great times yqi
have with their father when they're not around. They already fee
left out and they probably imagine the two of you tossing yo
heads back laughing, spending wads of money, and throwing Rink
Ding wrappers on the floor (not to mention the sexual fantasie
going on in their fevered little brains). If you want to give them
positive image of a loving couple, just be a loving couple.
6. 'Did your mother bring you up to do that?' Never bad moutl
the Ex and your husband (or partner) shouldn't either, even if th
fur is still flying. Studies show that it's the ongoing conflict afte
divorce that hurts kids the most.
Corollary: 'How could you have married such an idiot?' Don'
stand next to him when he's on the phone with his ex, making face
and sticking your fingers down your throat. Don't write her letter
or e-mails, and if she's a crank caller, get caller ID. Fighting abou
the ex, call it the ex hex is the equivalent of having a stink boml
thrown into your marriage.
7. 'Have you always done that?' Families have traditions tha
are meaningful to them. So if your husband and his children insis
on watching Hogan's Heroes reruns, putting mayonnaise on ho
dogs, collecting rubber bands or anything else you find distasteful
just keep your mouth shut.
8. 'Your room is a pigsty!' Something's got to give, and th
neatness should be it. If the situation is desperate and the kids ar
growing subspecies in their space, get Dad to go in there and organs
a clean-up. Life is messy, and it's been messier when you choose'
man with children. But remember, it's better to have a man witl
kids than one without kids who flosses his dog's teeth.
9. 'Well, my kids and I...' If you have kids of your own wh(
live with you and your husband, your step-kids may feel like they'd
getting the fuzzy end of the lollipop. Mentioning trips, restaurant
and the fun stuff you did the weekend they were with their moi
feeds the illusion that your children are getting more. Be clear tha
there are no favourites and everything is even between both sets o
10. 'What's the matter, never heard of thank you?' Don't be
come a step-parent expecting gratitude. (Don't become a parent ex
pecting it, either). While you shouldn't tolerate rudeness, choose
your battles carefully. Kids generally don't have the best manners
they get preoccupied and forgo social niceties. Don't be petulant
you're the grown-up.
11. 'We're not made of money, you know.' Their father'sipri
mary motivation is guilt. (Come to think of it, that's his secondarP
one as well.) Dad is guilty, the ex is angry, the battle is on, am
money is the weapon. Stay out of the fight, work out a familybud
get, and don't discuss finances in front of the children.
12. 'It's them or me.' It will always have to be them. Your step
children are jealous of you. But admit it, you're jealous of then
too. If you make it a battlefield, this is a battle you'll lose.
Corollary: 'Wake me when it's over.' Rather than endur
ing the time you spend with the kids, enjoy it. Tell knock
knock jokes, bake cakes do anything other than withdraw
and watch the clock until they leave. They're never really go
ing to go away, even if you stay under the radar. Intimacy ma
be long time coming, but, like so many other situations in life
you've just got to put in the time. Granted, it's a complicate
dynamic, but the Beatles were right: The love you make i
equal to love you take. Or is it the other way around?

known as iftar.
Iftar usually begins with dates and sweet drinks that provide
a quick energy boost. Family members participate in prayers
which are then followed by a meal.
Fasting serves many purposes. While they are hungry and
thirsty, Muslims are reminded of the suffering of the poor.
Fasting is also an opportunity to practise self-control and to
cleanse the body and mind.
"If I'm angry with one of my brothers during Ramadan, I
would tell him: 'look, I'm fasting,' and that would help me not to
get into trouble," Inshan says.
Also during Ramadan, Inshan says Muslims are required to
pray five times a day, but extra prayer is done during the nights.
Prayers are strictly said in the Arabic language.
At many mosques during Ramadan, about one thirtieth of the
Islamic holy book Qur'an is recited each night in prayers known
as tarawih. In this way, by the end of the month the complete
scripture will have been recited.
Inshan is tasked with making the call to prayer five times a
day and counts the privilege as a blessing.
He also assists with the preparation of more than 200 meals
when fast is broken in the evening.
Former Army Chief-of-Staff Major General Norman
McLean, a Muslim for the past 25 years, says the observance
of Ramadan does not differ much around the world.
McLean made the pilgrimage to Mecca 15 years ago when he
was Chief-of-Staff of the Guyana Defence Force, but said he

would like to return, even though he is not required to, because
he did not understand all the features associated with the Hajj.
Looking at Ramadan observances outside of Guyana, he said
from what he has seen in the U.S.A., Gambia and moreso Ghana,
which has a strong Muslim population, there are really no differ-
ences associated with this month.
Inshan, quoted above, is a descendant of the East Indian Mus-
lims who were brought to work on the sugar plantations in Guyana
as indentured workers.
However, they were not the first set of Muslims in
Guyana. These were in fact the African slaves who were
brought here. These were from the Fulani and Mandingo
However, these West Africans were not allowed to retain their
language'or culture and were forcibly converted to Christianity.
When the East Indians came to these shores, however, they
were allowed some amount of liberty to practise their religion
and so Islam grew in Guyana.
Muslims believe that during the month of Ramadan, Allah re-
vealed the first verses of the Qur'an, the holy book of Islam.
Around 610 A.D., a caravan trader named Muhammad took
to wandering the desert near Mecca (in today's Saudi Arabia) while
thinking about his faith. One night, a voice called to him from the
sky. It was the angel Gabriel, who told Muhammad he had been
chosen to receive the word of Allah.
In the days that followed, Muhammad found himself speak-
ing the verses that would be transcribed into the Qur'an.
Ramadan ends with the festival of Eid ul-Fitr, which lit-
erally means 'Festival of Breaking the Fast'.

small boys would go to the
seashore with the fishermen
at nights when they go to
pick fish from their seines. If
they had good catch, they
would call and say come and

He trudged behind the

Toughest time for

make more quick progress but
still got more waterfalls ahead.

Papa's father was Osborne

his mother took him to live with
his aunts and uncles and other
relatives in Seafield.
He grew with siblings -

passed away.
Papa said he was an avid
reader. He read the Bible,
books on Rosicrucianism, one
that taught the art of flirting,
and even one on the black
arts, though the contents of
that one didn't resonate with
him, so he stopped reading it.

not" by following trends via the mass media.
Jerrylee Phillips says that John Lewis' shoes, both leather
and non-leather. come out of Miami. Although she was tight-
lipped about the brands, the prices are excellent.
Most of their customers, Phillips said, are mature 25 years
and over. And in demonstration for their love of the shoes that
John Lewis stocks, customers usually return for additional pairs
in other colours.
Hubert Gibson, Store Manager of John Lewis, who
focuses on the sale of men's shoes, encourages men
to not be afraid of wearing dress shoes.
"I would say try them on, wear them as often as possible
so that your feet can get accustomed to the feel of dress shoes,"
Gibson said.
Men also need to choose appropriate socks. Phillips
pointed out that thick cotton socks are not for dress shoes
and those contribute to the terrible discomfort often asso-
ciated with the wearing of such shoes.
Thinner dress socks of cotton and nylon weave are great
for wearing your trendy shoes. As John Lewis rules for men on
dressing say. black socks are best with any shoe, except sneak-
ers, and never wear brown shoes with black pants.
Pires also has a timeless tip for men, "A man's shoes must
match his belt."
So what are currently trendy in the men's shoe line?
Square tips. Leather upper. Non-leather upper featuring leather
lining. Stain defender. Sleek sole and heel. Designs ranging from buckle-
ups, to lace-ups, to slip-ons, to high-cut zip-ups.
Next week, we will introduce Guyanese designed and
manufactured 'Tuff Wear' and begin to examine challenges
of the local shoe manufacturing industry.

by Petamber Persaud
HE is better
known as a
politician than a
writer although she has
been writing for as long
as she has been a
politician. She has a
lifelong intimacy with
books, something that
grew on her while she
worked as a proof-
reader for the American
Medical Association.
As a journalist, newspaper
editor and prolific writer of
children's books, she touched on
almost every subject in the
universe including and in
particular the fight against
discrimination to women, the
fight for labour and better
working conditions, and the
fight for Guyana's
independence. You would also
find she placed great emphasis
on the rights of the child;
'Children first fund' was started
many years ago to establish
libraries in schools to re-launch
a reading culture among youths.
Janet Jagan and her late
husband knew the power of the
written word, both prolific

writers setting their thoughts
down on paper for debate and
dialogue. But Mrs. Jagan went
to the heart of the matter when
she started writing for children.
Writer, patron of the arts,
lover of literature, freedom
fighter, politician, Janet Jagan
was born on October 20, 1920
in Chicago, U.S.A. In December
1943, she came to Guyana,
making it her home where she
achieved a number of firsts in
various spheres of activities.
In 1950, she became the
first editor of 'Thunder', the
official organ of the People's
Progressive Party (PPP) and in
the same year was the first
woman elected to the City
Council. In 1953, she was the
first woman to become Deputy
Speaker of the Legislature. Janet
Jagan was also Guyana's first
woman Prime Minister and
woman Executive President.
She was educated at
University of Detroit, Wayne
University,. Michigan State
College: Cook County School of
Nursing. She was a popular
youth who loved swimming,
horse riding and flying. In fact,
she said she was not afraid
when she arrived in Guyana in
1943 by a seaplane landing in a
rough, murky Demerara River.
And adventurous; she is one of

the first women to approach
Kaieteur Falls from the bottom
In Guyana, Janet Jagan
quickly got involved in union
activity, working with Hubert
Nathaniel Critchlow to
organise domestics and later
teaming up with Winifred
Gaskin and Frances Stafford
to form the Women's
Political and Economic
Organisation. This was in
addition to working as an
office assistant and hygienist
in her husband's dentistry
and raising a family.
In 1950, she co-founded the
People's Progressive Party
and was jailed for six months for
the ideals of that organisation
following the suspension of the
Janet Jagan held a number
of significant positions in this
country. In 1957 she was
Minister of Labour, Health and
Housing. In 63/64, she was
Minister of. Home Affairs.
During the years 1970 to 1997,
she was president of reorganised
Union of Guyanese Journalists.
She was also the Editor of the
Mirror Newspaper between
1973 and 1997, a small
embattled paper that devoted a
page to the literary and artistic
need of children.

and non-white, survived in
Latin America, becoming a vi-
brant contemporary modern
culture, was because life on the
continent was not seen as a
curse or fatal misfortune created
by imperialism, but an oppor-
tunity to celebrate living in the
amazing geography of a so-
called New World, or continent
generally unknown to the rest of
the world before the 15th cen-
tury.. -
In South America, among in-
digenous Indian cultures or
tribes, since 'primitive/prehis-
toric' times, the necessity of
work or labour was conceived
and practised as a creative ac-
tivity which produced food to
eat and drink, garments to wear,
weapons to hunt and defend,
utensils to use, architecture to
inhabit, music to play .and lis-
ten to. This is the reason why
so-called primitive societies are
studied extensively today by
the science of anthropology.
There is much to learn and pre-
serve from simple well-balanced
lifestyle. The idea that life is an
ART, is an ancient wise idea.
In the Portuguese/Spanish

point, because the basket was
more useful and important.
The ancient, pre-Columbian
role of the arts in South America
led to a pooling of new skills
acquired during European con-
quest. Now a native Indian
could play a European trumpet
and guitar, eat a Spanish om-
elette, etc. Now. an African
could play a piano, eat Carib,
pepperpot, Portuguese garlic
pork, etc. Now a European,
could play the Congas, bamboo
flutes, eat cassava cakes, avoca-
dos, corn cakes, chocolate, etc.
And not least, each'of these
races could cultivate personal
attractions of the heart, fall in
love, marry, and produce normal
human families with each other.

-A frank look at SASOD, Spectrum and the sexual-preference debate in Guyana


SOME of my best friends are
gay. Seriously. That's mainly
how I found myself at the
launching of the SASOD
Film Festival two Mondays
ago at the Sidewalk Cafe and
Jazz Club in Georgetown.
SASOD the Society
Agaist Sexual Orientation Dis-
cranimation is currently host-
ing Panimng the Spectrum', A
Celebration of Love, more spe-
cifically gay and lesbian love.
The festival consists of the
screening of films which feature
homosexuality or bisexuality as
one of the major themes.
Another important reason
why I went is that I had at the
time been researching a human
interest article on what it is like
to be homosexual and bisexual in
Guyana. I have had a
tongstanding interest, I confess,
in the issue of these two sexual
preferences/choices/states of be-
ing- This interest was sparked
after picking up a book, several
years ago, in the poetry reference
section at the National Library,
'The Penguin Book of Homo-
sexual Verse'.
I found inside that book
some of the most personally dis-
turbing and some of the most
beautifully crafted poetry I have
ever read. From Sappho to
Gtnburg. from the pornographic
to> the sublime, that anthology
gave me a glimpse of a parallel
human world, possessing all the
human beauty and grotesquery
thal my own offered.
But far more interesting,
however, were the few com-
ments scribbled on the front in-
side cover of the book, alter-
nately for or against different is-
sues, ranging from the appropri-
ateness of the book in the Na-
tuoiam Library or the sinfulness
or lack thereof of homosexuality.
I made it a habit of always leav-
ing the book out on a desk and
then checking it whenever I went
back to see how the debate had
progressed. The last time I
checked, almost all the inside
covers and the two flyleaf pages
inm re book were overtaken with
It should be said, at this
ypota, that I can tender the fairly
inconclusive fact that I live with
a beautiful young woman with
whom I have a handsome (his
mother's genes) son as admit-
tedly evidence that I am hetero-
sexual. And that my interest in
homosexuality and bisexuality is
partially academic; and partially
out of a perhaps misdirected
sense of social justice I have
when it comes to the prejudice
against gays and lesbians in the
Caribbean, Guyana in particular.

Of course I have my preju-

dices when it comes to gay
people. I believe that I am, for
example, hardwired to wince
whenever I see two men show-
ing public (much-the-less pri-
vate) displays of affection. No
amount of personal tolerance or
openness to dialogue is going to
change that. Maybe continued
exposure might eventually
desensitise me, but I don't feel
as if I'll ever be ready for the
marathon session of 'Queer as
Folk' that that would require.
My prejudices against lesbi-
ans are less clear. In fact, I'm not
sure if I have any real prejudices
against women who prefer to be
with other women...except one
which I will deal with soon, and
which can count as a general
prejudice against anyone who
deviates too far from the ambit
of 'normal' heterosexual activity.
I suppose my self-confessed
ambiguity of judgment concern-
ing lesbians stems from two
things: a general societal ambiva-
lence when it comes to women
with 'Sapphic tendencies' in
Guyana; and the m6nage-a-trois
fantasy that a significant number
of men have.
My general prejudice
when it comes to same-sex re-
lationships inclusive of les-
bian ones concerns not any
aspect of the sexual act itself
but an important corollary,
human longing for continua-
tion of species, the desire for
parenthood. As open as I am
vis-a-vis the issue of legally
sanctioned same-sex mar-
riages, I am yet to find any
sort of comfort level concern-
ing the parenting of children
by same-sex couples.
Why? My argument, simpli-
fied, is that non-heterosexual ac-
tivity is a deviation from the
norm a human deviation I
should add, but a deviation all
the same. When it comes to chil-
dren, we should, in my opinion,
give them the benefit of the norm
(male-female parenting) from
birth, since sexual-orientation,
while not completely about the
actual sex, is primarily about sex,
something that is ideally re-
served for mature adults. In my
opinion, same-sex parenting
threatens to skew the develop-
ment of a child's sexuality by pre-
senting the deviations (and I do not
mean this in any pejorative sense)
that are homosexuality and bisexu-
ality as the norm itself

Now back to the subject,
Spectrum. What was personally
interesting to me is that all three
films that SASOD screened the
first week of the Festival touched
separately on the areas of male
homosexuality, lesbianism, and
same-sex parenting as if delib-
erately catering to my general

prejudices as outlined above.
(See Spectrum mini-review).
What was shocking is that the
promised discussion about sexu-
ality and the politics about
sexual preference in Guyana
never happened.
I know a bit about SASOD.
During the 2003 furore concern-
ing the proposed inclusion of a
clause banning discrimination
against persons on the basis of
their sexual preference, a group
called SASOD was at the van-
guard of the gay/lesbian defence
side of the debate.
The group now calling itself
the Society Against Sexual Ori-
entation Discrimination started
out then as Students Against
Sexual Orientation Discrimina-
tion, with University of Guyana
Law student, Joel Simpson pen-
ning most of the letters. The let-
ter-writing campaign was a cou-
rageous, almost leonine move
then, as Spectrum can be consid-
ered as sort of a courageous, al-
most leonine move now.
From what I've seen of the
current membership of the new
SASOD, the intellectual calibre
of the group's membership in-
clusive of the continued presence
of Simpson has not been low-
ered. They are all above-average
intelligent young professionals
working with government, pri-
vate sector, and the international
donor community. That is why
their inability to stimulate open
discussion after each screening is
At the end of the screening
of the third film, one active
SASOD member got up and
queried whether the movie was
"Was the photography
good?" he asked the audi-
ence. After a few seconds of
non-committal grunting, the
proposed discussion petered
out. In fact, the most valuable
feedback the group got from
the audience the entire week
was garnered from a badly-de-
signed questionnaire distrib-
uted after the screenings.
If anything, Spectrum seems
to have simply started the chain
of events that will lead to an in-
evitable shouting match between
the group and its opponents, the
opponents doing most of the
shouting. Evidence enough of
this is the scathing letter written
by a Roger Williams and pub-
lished earlier this month in the
Guyana Chronicle. Excerpts of
Mr. Williams' October 7 letter:
"Did SASOD receive per-
mission from the Censor Board,
and the Police, for the public
screening of this pornographic
material? Was the fact that the
advertisement of this sleaze
came only one day before the
"festival" started of any signifi-
cance? Are our children, and
communities, at risk?

Contrary to SASOD's flyer,
the evidence illustrates that it is
a sordid life in the gay, bisexual,
lesbian and transgender commu-
nity. Same sex relationships are
notorious for the volume of part-
ners involved, used, abused and
dumped in the process, and the

disproportionate levels of dis-
ease they foist upon society....

Guyana's criminal law pro-
hibits same sex intercourse ...
for good moral and medical rea-
When this article was originally
written, I had predicted that
SASOD's response would be well-
articulated, well-written, well-re-
searched and.. .extremely timid. In
a letter published in Guyana
Chronicle, Monday 10th October,
SASOD response begins:

Luckily for SASOD, one of
their biggest opponents in 2003,
Bishop Juan Edgehill is now
current Chairman of the Ethnic
Relations Commission. I am
willing to wager that although
Edgehill's fundamental[ist] posi-
tion on gays in Guyana he has
the dubious honour of being
dubbed Guyana's anti-gay cru-
sader by several gay/lesbian/
transsexual websites has not
changed, it would not do well for
the him to be preaching equality
on one issue, and intolerance on
Still, the debate on homo-
sexuality in Guyana has always
been and from SASOD's lat-
est 'volley' against Williams -

one in which the anti-gay activ-
ists shout through a megaphone,
while SASOD & Co. speak in
hushed whispers. But even more
importantly as I mentioned to
one of the organizers of Spec-
trum on the anti-discrimination
side, there has never been any
personalisation of the issues.
In addition to knowing about

the group, I actually know some
of the members of SASOD. I am
willing to stake my [perhaps
over-inflated] reputation as a
journalist that SASOD member-
ship is comprised largely al-
most exclusively of either ho-
mosexual or bisexual persons,
i.e., people with a vested, per-
sonal interest.
My friend the Spectrum
organiser rationalised that
personalisation is going to take
away from the objectivity about
the debate on human sexuality in
Guyana...which I say is bun-
kum. SASOD can squeak on
about inclusivity and tolerance
and non-discrimination until the
cows come home.
While there is an abundance
of intelligence, of intensity to-
wards their 'cause', what is
common to SASOD's members
and by extension the society it-
self, is a surfeit of cowardice in
regards to representing their po-
sition. Until one of its members
is brave enough to come out of
the closet publicly, to shout "I
am gay/lesbian, hear me roar!",
they might as well end all the
upper-crust, pseudo-intellectual
experimentation, the half-
hearted posturing...which is es-
sentially all that Spectrum is.
If not, they'll continue to
be where they have always
been when it comes to their
pla la this society: on the
inside looking in.

Despite the automatic winc
whenever Omar and Johnny kiss
I was objective enough to notic
that 'Laundrette' is a beautiful
shot and scored film with a pic
that is just complex enough
drama to be dubbed as 'human
or 'realistic' but with mediocre
acting by most of the cast wit
the exception of Lewis and Rit
Wolf (Tania).
'Laundrette' is a poignar
love story in which th
"wrongness" of Johnny's an
Omar's affair comes less from it
status as a homosexua
relationship than the fact that i
is an interracial/intercultural one
The seething racism between th
Pakistanis and the whit
Londoners dwarfs any angs
that might have come about as
result of the two men bein,

considerations aside, one of th
highlights of the film was a
appearance by Guyanese-bor
actor Ramjohn Holder, ('Pork

A Mini Review

Tuesday, I missed the
screening of the second movie,
'little man', by Nicole Conn but
went .online to look it up
anyway. The film is a
documentary about the tension
that develops between Conn a
lesbian and her partner when
their child being birthed by a
surrogate mother is born over
three months early. According to
online articles and reviews about
the film, Conn skilfully follows
the initial complications, the
birth and the quarrel between
her and her girlfriend Gwen
whether or not to abort the child.
According to one SASOD
member whom I spoke to
subsequently, unlike
'Laundrette'. there was actually
some post-screening discussion
about this film. Notably
however, it was about the.
morality of abortion as opposed
to morality of the lesbian.
relationship around which the
film is centred.


- 'When Night

is Falling'
I missed most of the third
film 'When Night is Falling', but
fortunately I had seen it before.
The film is around an uptight
religious studies student-teacher,
Camille who goes through an
existential epiphany of sorts
when her dog dies. She realises
that she might not be all that hot
under the chemise for the man
she is about to marry, Martin,
and may in fact be falling for an
alluring female circus performer
she had just met. Again, as was
the case with 'My Beautiful
Laundrette', there is sensitive
writing, a nice plot, good
cinematography but sub- J
standard acting. The added allure
of this film is its sensuality
though both between Camille
and Martin and Camille and
My favourite scene in this
film was when Camille tries to
confess her Sapphic sins to a'
patronising church elder.
Reverend DeBoer: Yes, I
think we have been guilty of
homophobic cruelty, and,
excluded people like you, in the
Camille: People like me.

and is visible at sunset, or
shortly afterwards.
An actual physical sighting
of the moon is necessary in or-
der to start the new Islamic
month, and this is based on
Abdullah bin Umar (R.A.)
narrated that Rasulullah
said: "The month (can be) 29 :
nights, and do not fast till you
see the moon, and if the sky is
overcast (cloudy), then com-
plete Shabaan as thirty days.."
The Islamic month is 29 or
30 days. The moon is searched
for at sunset on the end of the
29th day. If the moon is seen,
the new month begins. If the
moon is not seen, then the
month has to complete thirty
days, and the new month begins
a day later.
It is not necessary to sight
the moon at sunset of the 30th
day. The new month always
starts if the previous month
completes thirty days.
Allah Ta'ala has decreed
that there are 12 months in
a year. The Islamic year (Lu-
nar year) is approximately
354 days, based on a 29 or 30
day month, and a 12 month
The Lunar year moves with
respect to the Solar year which
is approximately 365.25 days.
This causes the Islamic months
to slide through their seasons, so
that Ramadaan will sometimes
be in summer and sometimes in
Winter. It takes approximately
32 years to complete a cycle
through the seasons, so that if
Ramadaan was exactly in the
middle of Summer, it will return
to the middle of summer after
32 years.
It is true that the orbit of
the moon and its position in

the sky at any given time can
be precisely computed. Allah
Ta'ala has fixed its path so
that it does not deviate. Then
what is the role of
computation and prediction
in the sighting of the moon
and determining the start of
a new Islamic month? As has
already been stated above, the
moon has to be physically
sighted in order to start the new
Islamic month. Although the
position of the moon in the sky
can be precisely computed,
nevertheless, its visibility
cannot be predicted with
100% accuracy, for the
following reasons:

clear weather, many people
should see the moon in order for
the sighting to be valid. In
cloudy weather, the evidence of
even a single upright person is
It is the consensus of the
Muslim Jurists that 'every land

should have its own sighting'.
Every country or territory
should confirm its own sighting
of the moon to start the new Is-
lamic month.
This means that different
countries may well begin the
new month on different days,
with typically a day's difference
in the start of the month. This
is completely acceptable. These
differences in the start of the
month in different locations ex-
isted even in the time of the
Sahaba (R.A.), when the Mus-
lim empire grew very large.
Large time differences
across the world make it imprac-
tical and inappropriate to use a
single global sighting for the
whole world. Consider that the
day is 24 hours. The birth of
the moon may be shortly after
the sunset in New Zealand on a
given day. Obviously, the pre-
vious month has not yet expired
in New Zealand. However, the
sun may set in Los Angeles 20
hours later the same day, and
the 20 hour moon may well be
seen in Los Angeles. At this
point, it may already be past
midday of the next day in New
Zealand, and how can they now
accept the sightirig of Los An-
geles, when the entire night and
most of the next day have al-
ready passed? In any case, it
cannot be the 1st of the new
month for them in NewZealand
because the birth of the moon had
not yet taken place at sunset of the
29th day in New Zealand.
For the above reasons,, itis
impractical and inappropriate to
use a single global sighting for
the whole world, and every
land should have its own sight-

ello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. Today
we'll look at what "can pollen be transferred
successfully only by an insect?" And "what are
the petals for?"

Can pollen be transferred successfully only by
an insect?

Experiment. Remove the anthers from a bud and
cover with a bag as in the previous experiment. But
this time, open the bag on the following day and rub
some pollen on to the stigma the anther of another
flower of the same plant Put the bag back on for

another two days. Is any fruit formed this time?
The last experiment can be repeated using pollen
from different kinds of plants, to find whether any
kind of pollen will do, or whether it must come from
the same kind of plant.

What are the petals for?
Most plants have brightly coloured petals. Some-
times the petals are sweetly scented. They are the
flower's advertisement. The colour and scent tell
insects that the big sign outside a petrol station tells
car drivers that they can fill up with petrol. Insects
do not pay money for what they get from the flower,
but they do essential work for the plant by carrying

There might be some regret later in %-
2. What entities in your community are involved in
your well-being? The churches and ff nurses,
and snack saleswomen are all involve':. in the wel-
fare of my community.
3. Record some of the health factors tro -^ 'he stake-
holders address. The stakeholders fCMdress the

hold appliances, the trirnming of overhanging tree

branches, and the placing of notices on house gates
to inform about bad dogs.
4. If someone chooses to live alone, what advice

6. What efforts do your parents/guardians put into
solving home and community health questions? My
parents spray our yard with disinfectant and clear
the drains outside our yard regularly.

swer for each question that appears below. (Try to
really find out the correct answers.)

a) Portuguese
(c ) African
(d) East Indian

curry was brought here by one of

pollen to the stigma.
The majority of grasses and some other plants have
flowers which lack conspicuous petals. They are
pollinated by the wind.
The flowers with the strongest scent are those
which attract the moths which fly in the evening and
at night. Some of these plants, such as the jas-
mine, seem to 'turn on' their scent in the evening,
and 'turn it off again next morning. The flowers are
therefore sweetly scented in the night but not dur-
ing the day.
Sunbirds are small, brightly coloured birds, with
slender, curved beaks. They feed on nectar and
help the pollination ofmanyflowers; including Pride of
Barbados. They are particularly fond of trees with large,
red flowers, such as Bombax and Erythrina.

How do seeds grow?
Take a pistil from an old Hibiscus flower and split it
lengthwise with a razor-blade. Can you see the
small seeds? Measure the length of the ovary and
of the young seeds and compares their sizes with
those of the mature fruit and seed. Plant some
seeds from a green fruit. Do they germinate? Do
the ripe seeds germinate? Make drawings to show
the structure of the ripe fruit, both before it splits
open and after. Notice how the seeds are attached
inside the fruit and the scar that is left on the seed
when it breaks away from the fruit.

Reminder: Good descriptive writing depends on the cre-
ation of vivid word pictures and the organization of those
pictures into an effective pattern.

Organise Details in Spatial Order
Reminder: Good descriptive writing depends upon the
effective use of details, and the organization of those de-
tails into meaningful patterns. One natural way of orga-
nizing descriptiv# writing. is to arrange details in spatial
order- that is, left torigft, front to back, near to far, clock-
wise, or counterclockwise. -

A point to note: When you write descriptions, you can
use prepositional phrases to establish spatial relation-
ships between objects.

The Passage

When- the enemy machine-guns had been discharged,
our patrols would go out with bombs to claim possession
of No Man's Land. At dawn next morning came the
struggle for sniping ascendancy. TheiGermans had a
special regimental sniper, who had bye. sniping all day
from a shell-hole between the lines He, wore a sort of
cape made of imitation grass, his face was painted green
and brown, and his rifle was also.green-fringed. A number
of empty cartridges lay beside him, and his cap bore the
special oak-leaf badge. Few of our battalions attempted
to get control of the sniping situation. The Germans had
the advantage of having many times moreitelescopic sights
than we did., and bullet-proof steel loop-holes. Also a
system by which snipers were kept fof months in the
same sector until they knew all the loopholes and shal-
low places in our trenches, and the tracks that our ration
parties used above-ground by night, and where our
traverses occurred, and so on, better thqn most of us did
ourselves. British snipers changed their trenches, with
their battalions, every week or two, and riever had time to
study the German trench-geography. .But at, least we
counted on getting rid of the unprofessional sniper. Later
we secured an elephant-gun that could send a bullet
tm enemy loop-holes; and if we faito locate the loop-
hole of apersistentsnipe we tried to dislodge him with a
volley of rile-grenades, or even by ringing up the artillery.

it puzzled us that's soon as a sniper had been killed,
another sniper would often begin operations next
day from the same position. The Germans probably
undeterred us, and regarded their loss as an acci-
dent The willingness of other battalions to allow
the Gennrmans sniping ascendancy helped us; enemy
snipers, even the professionals, often exposed them-
sevemunnecessarily. There was one advantage of

port mechanisms..

3. After the greeting in a formal letter.

b. Dear Ms. Bounty:

4. To separate hours from minutes, parts of a
named source, or parts of a book title.
a. 9:15 RM.
b. Psalms 23;3
c. PupilWeare& Counsellig:An approach

the curriculum

The Semi-colon (;)

The semi-colon is used in the following number of ways:

1. Between parts of compound sentence when
they are joined by the conjunctions and, but
for.nor, or or
i. They want to eat their dinner:
now, they will singt-yqu later.
i hey will see the K6Wteui ne.xt

6. Before expressions that explain, such as for
example, for instance, that is, and namely,
when a stronger break than a comma is
needed. .:- .,l

two reasons; namely, privacy and con-
b. Adults like to have their own cell phones
for two reasoris; namely, personal privacy
and checking on offspring:

(EPA) on behalf of the Govern-
ment of Guyana (GoG) signed
an agreement with the United
Nations Development
Programme (UNDP), for the
funding of the National Capac-
ity Self Assessment Project.
This project is for duration of
18 months; it commenced in
July 2005 and would end in De-
cember 2006. This project is


funded by the Global Environ-
ment Facility (GEF) through its
implementing agency UNDP
and, is being executed by the
Guyana ratified the Rio Con-
ventions: UN Convention on Bio-
logical Diversity (UNCBD) and the
UN Framework Convention on
Climate Change (UNFCCC) on
August 29, 1994 and; the Conven-
tion to Combat Desertification
(UNCCD) on June 26, 1997.
The GoG is committed to
pursuing development in a sus-

tainable manner, and various co-
ordinating bodies are in place to
achieve this goal. To this extent,
the responsibilities for environ-
ment and natural resources man-
agement have been dispersed
among a number of Agencies, in-
cluding the Environmental Pro-
tection Agency, Guyana Lands
& Surveys Commission, the
Hydro Meteorological Division
within the Ministry of Agricul-
ture, Guyana Geology and
Mines Commission, Guyana
Forestry Commission, Fisheries
Department, Wildlife Division,
However, Guyana faces
some challenges in meeting the
international obligations of these
Conventions, including a) lim-
ited statutory power to effec-
tively carry out mandates; b)
inadequate institutional capacity
of the sector agencies to meet
Guyana's obligations under the
Conventions; c) limited human

resources for environmental and
natural resources management
and d) differing priorities of
various development agencies.
As such, implementation of the
respective national commit-
ments and obligations of the
three Conventions in the coun-
try has been fragmented, sector-
based and to some extent unco-
ordinated resulting in sub-opti-
mal impact.
Recognising the issues hin-
dering natural resources and en-
vironmental management and
the benefits of conducting a na-
tional capacity assessment, in
Guyana, a country with limited
human and financial resources,
the GoG pursued the prepara-
tion and submission of a project
proposal to the GEF, through
the UNDP.
National Capacity Self As-
sessment (NCSA) seeks to iden-
tify and characterise capacity
constraints relevant to effective
environmental management
across the natural resources and
environment sector, in Guyana.
This will be accomplished
through several activities which
will identify, review and confirm
priority capacity issues for ac-
tion within the thematic areas of
Biodiversity, Climate Change
and Desertification.
The Project will allow
Guyana to thoroughly self-as-
sess and strategically analyse its
current national capacity en-
hancement needs and priorities
so that global environmental
management objectives can be
met. This will be done through
a participatory process that will
involve wide-ranging stake-
holder consultations in a phased
process including a stocktaking
exercise, thematic assessments,
and identification and
prioritisation of cross cutting
capacity issues, in relation to
the conventions. The result will
be the preparation of a NCSA
report and A National Strategy

and Action Plan.
The project also intends to
create community level aware-
ness of the three (3) Rio con-
ventions, through the distribu-
tion of awareness materials.
With effective implementa-
tion, the NCSA project will
benefit Guyana by:
Providing a more in-
depth look at capacity issues and
bottlenecks, as well as synergies
that can result from an examination
of cross-cutting issues.
Identifying and
prioritising critical capacity con-
straints that hamper the implemen-
tation of the UN Conventions.
Providing the oppor-
tunity to identify, develop and
foster linkages among sector
agencies, private sector and
Organizations, in the thematic
areas of Biodiversity, Climate
Change and Land Degradation.
Increasing stakeholder
awareness on various issues
with regard to national capacity
for environmental issues.
Linking past and on-
going activities pertaining to the
conventions with overall na-
tional development strategies
and policies.
Being able to present a
comprehensive Action Plan that
priorities capacity development
issues, to lobby bilateral and mul-
tilateral partners for funding.
In this regard, the NCSA
project provides a timely op-
portunity to conduct an evalu-
ation of each thematic area and
the crosscutting issues between
them so as to develop an inte-
grated approach to meeting
Guyana's obligation under the
The Conventions and the
National Focal Points
UN Convention on
Biological Diversity
The objective of the
UNCBD are: 1. Conservation of
biological diversity; 2. Sustain-
able use of its components and;
3. Fair and equitable sharing of
benefits arising out of the use of
genetic resources.
The EPA is the national Fo-
cal Point for the UNCBD and
by its mandate, coordinates and
maintains a programme for the

conservation and sustainable

The guiding principles to
the UNFCCC include a) promo-
tion of sustainable development
and b) recognition of common
but differentiated responsibili-
ties to address climate change,
i.e. although climate change must
be tackled as a global issue,
industrialized countries have
contributed most to the prob-
lem and have more resources to
address it. Thus they have ac-.
cepted the main responsibility
and agreed to provide financial
assistance and assistance to de-
veloping countries to deal with
climate change.
The Hydrometeorology Di-
vision within the Ministry of
Agriculture is the national focal
point for activities under the
UNFCCC in Guyana.
UN Convention to Combat
The objective of the
UNCCD is to combat desertifi-
cation and mitigate the effects of
drought, particularly in Africa,
through effective actions at all
levels to achieve sustainable de-
velopment in affected areas.
The national focal point,
the Guyana Lands and Surveys-
Commission, has the responsi-
bility for the implementation of

Anglican Church, Main Street, New Amsterdam

Prepared by Mr. Lennox Julian Hernandez, Senior Lecturer, Department of
Architecture, University of Guyana, for the National Trust of Guyana.

DUTCH settlers
established the town
we know as New
Amsterdam, late in the 18th
century, moving from the
Fort Nassau site. The
Lutherans were the first
Christian community,
building the first church in
the town by 1803. The
Anglicans followed 'the
Lutherans in 1811. Having
no building of their own, the
Anglicans contented
themselves with sharing the
Lutheran chapel. In 1818,
the Predikant of the Dutch
Reformed Church

suggested the building of a
'Colony Church' in which
the Dutch and the English
congregations might hold
service alternately. The
Colony Church was built
and opened in 1820, saw
shared use for a few years,
but with disputes, which
came to the boil in 1835. By
this time, the Scots
Presbyterian had entered
the religious scene in the
colony and they too claimed
alternate use of the church
building. The Scots were
eventually allowed to share
the building by order of the

Court of Policy, starting a
move by the Anglicans to
build their own church
where they can worship
"without interruption after
their accustomed form and
apostolic Order."
With both public and
private funding, construction of
the new church began in 1836,
on lots 9 and 10 Main and
Trinity Streets. Construction
was complete by June 22, 1838.
and the new church consecrated
by the Bishop on June 30,
1839. As a means of helping to
repay outstanding construction
debts, the Vestry (the governing
body of the Parish) rented out

tracts. rather than isolates people. Economic progress is achieved by agreed social goals,
which release pleasure and business opportunities via creativity.
E'en the Fine Arts of painting, sculpture, etc., are not seen as a luxury in Latin America, but a
menial and '. visual utility, no different than a bag, bicycle, car, computer, etc. Art boutiques do brisk
business *\. ih small abstract, geometric and other forms of local tropical modern art on paper,
% which boih se\es purchase and wrap, bringing them as surprise gifts for their close friends met at
Cate table at lunch time or relaxed late afternoons in the city.
So impori int and unique has been the role of the arts in Latin America that others around the
oorid hjac eid,\ays responded favourably to its freshness. One recent example was the later 1980's
sensual Brazilian dance craze 'The Lambada', which became a multi-million dollar song and dance
hui across Europe. French recording scouts had gone to a small town in Brazil and saw the poten-
tial of imnemaional interest in this dance with roots in Latin America's sensual art expressions.
Sal] ador. one of the most African-tinted Brazilian cities, is also vibrant with diverse musical
influences from around the world. This in turn has led to high quality local music which employs
many local people. Since the 1960s, an amazing tribute to Latin American culture emerged in the
Afncan nation, of Senegal, Gambia, Cameroon, Mali and the Congo, where young music-loving
Afnrcan girls and guys fell in love with the largely white and mixed Cuban and Latin American jazz-
linked musicians, Tito, Rodriguez, Johnny Pacheco, Perez Prado, Ray Berretto, Roberto Torres,
Apparently these 'hip' open-minded African fans recognized Africanised beats from their re-
gions in this Latin American fusion sound, since African slaves from their area had long been trans-
planted in Cuba and Latin America, leaving their cultural skills in other races living there',
The positi1 e role the arts play in South America's social well-being and economic progress
probably emerged from an early continental realisation by its transplanted peoples, that
they had little left to lose, but much more to gain.

pews to the highest bidder for
a 12-month period. This seems
to have an adverse effect on the
congregation as in 1840 it was
stressed that the church
should be better filled. The
Pew-opener was thus
instructed to "throw open the
unoccupied pews to the public""
after the first lesson.
The church has .gone

through some changes and
additions over the years, some
enveloping the original building.
In 1840, a new gallery was
erected, and in 1841, the clock
was installed in the tower, the
tower becoming a landmark in
the town. The majestic painted
glass window in the east was
erected early in 1852, Her
Majesty Queen Victoria having
donated $750.00 towards its
purchase. We understand that
the window was displayed at
the First Great Exhibition in
Hyde Park, London, before
being shipped to the colony.
For several weeks in 1877,
the building was closed for
extensive renovations and
repairs. The building was
extended in length, the
galleries were removed, a
south aisle added, side
porches erected, and a covered
entrance for carriages was built
at the west end.

The church was re-opened
on February 11, 1877. Further
extensions were made in the
1890s, including a north aisle
and the Lady Chapel. These
latest extensions have given
the building the typical
basilica-form of early
medieval churches, in wood,
the pointed arches hinting
Gothic Revival architecture.
The concrete additions of the
late 1950s, and later, have
hurt the historic ambience of
the building, unfortunately.
The National Trust of
Guyana remains committed
to the preservation of
Guyana's heritage. To this
end, we invite members of
* the community to actively
participate in the process
of conservation as we strive
to safeguard and promote

More information on teeth

i au -lv
- ... W

ADULT dogs have 42 teeth as compared with 28 deciduous teeth
(also known as milk teeth or baby teeth) in puppies. Adult cats
have 30 teeth while as kittens they possess 26 baby teeth.
Differing from puppies, adult dogs have an extra premolar on
both sides of the top and bottom jaw. They therefore have a total
of four premolars. The top jaw is called the maxilla and the bottom
jaw is the mandibula. Also, in adult dogs there are two (2) molars
on each side of the top jaw and three (3) molars on each side of the
bottom jaw.'
Adult cats have one (1) molar on each side of the top and bot-
tom jaws, a total of 4 molars.
As in the case with puppies (see last week's TVA) there is a
formula that assists easy understanding of the number and type of
teeth in the mouth of an adult dog and cat:

Dog 2 x (I3/3 C1/1 P4/4 M2/3 =
Cat 2 x (13/3 CI/1 P3 Mi/1 =

neutering programme. If you see anyone being cruel to
an animal, get in touch with the Clinic and Shelter by
