‘Zero tolerance for those with racist agenda’ – GCCI blasts WPA

See the Full statement from the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) below: 
The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) has noted public utterances recently made by agents operating in the political sphere.
The Chamber wishes to state that it has absolutely no tolerance for any agent or agency desirous of inciting racial tensions, hostility or ill-will against any person of a specific gender, class or race. The Chamber would also like to emphatically state that violence, and the urging of violence, has no place in a modern and democratic society.
It is disheartening and appalling to see a fossilized way of thinking being resurrected and urgings in the direction of sowing havoc, disharmony and the destabilization of our democracy. There is no place for this type of behaviour in the landscape of Guyana. The rule of law should be respected and obeyed by all citizens.
As a racially diverse nation it is important that we remember to respect each other and refrain from uttering reckless statements that are void of promoting unity in diversity. Each citizen must act as sentinels of our fledgling democracy.
