Exercise calm judgement- IAC New Year’s Message
See full New Year’s Message from the Indian Arrival Committee (IAC)
The IAC wishes all Guyanese a happy, prosperous and peaceful New Year 2019.
The IAC is cognizant of the tensions in the country following the defeat of the APNU+AFC Coalition Government by way of a No-Confidence Motion on 21st December 2018 and is calling upon all citizens to exercise calm judgement in the current unsettled political situation in Guyana and do nothing to cause mischief and thereby disturb the peace.
The IAC is also cognizant of the serious threat to the stability of the country caused by opportunistic Venezuelan aggression in which a Venezuelan warship violated Guyana’s sovereign territory and forced a vessel contracted by ExxonMobil and its partners to flee an area where the ship was carrying out lawful seismic geophysical activities on behalf of the private companies and the State of Guyana.
The IAC is calling upon President Granger and the leadership of the political parties represented in the National Assembly to act quickly to prevent both internal and external turmoil, all of which will have devastating effects here.
The IAC wishes to commend the courage of Mr. Charrandas Persaud in doing what he did at the National Assembly of the evening of Friday, 21st December 2018.
The IAC hopes that the struggling national economy, with the help of political cooperation, can be made to improve in such as manner as to alleviate the suffering of hundreds of thousands of impoverished Guyanese citizens including the dislocated sugar workers at Wales, Rose Hall and Skeldon.
The IAC hopes that the new government will move swiftly to deal with these pressing socio-economic and diplomatic problems facing the nation.
The IAC, having just successfully hosted its 2018 Christmas outreach at Hope Estate Primary School for approximately two hundred children of all ethnicities, will have its first program in 2019 on January 26 to remember the victims of the Lusignan Massacre which occurred almost 11 years ago in 2008.
Happy New Year 2019.
