‘Truth and fairness will prevail’ – GAWU says in Phagwah message
See below the full message from GAWU:
As we celebrate the joyous festival of Phagwah or Holi, the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) takes this opportunity to extend greetings to all Guyanese, especially our brothers and sisters of the Hindu community.
Phagwah has become a truly national festival, which Guyanese from all spheres of society look anticipate. The diverse colours that are associated with the festival symbolize the commencement of the spring season and epitomize our nation’s rich diversity in a demonstration of a vibrant fusion.
Like all of our national festivals, the significance of Phagwah, through its pertinent messages, speaks to, among others, the triumph of good over evil. This message is pertinent at this juncture given the current challenges our country faces where evildoers continue to diminish attempts at furthering good and progress.
Let’s be emboldened with the hope that, through resoluteness in the face of adversity and despondency, the messages of Phagwah translate to the inevitable prevailing of truth and fairness.
As Guyanese participate to mark the occasion, our Union once again Textends best wishes and urges tolerance and respect in the celebrations. Shubh Holi to all!
