‘There is immense pride in diversity imbuing us all’ -PPP in Arrival Day message


See below full message from the People’s Progressive Party:

Arrival Day, designated a national holiday on May 1st, 2004, is of tremendous significance to our country and all of its people.

It is a day that brings into focus the rich history of strength, determination, and innovative spirit brought by our ancestors who came to the shores of our dear land from various parts of the world.

It also reminds us of the sacrifices and immeasurable contributions made by them to develop our communities and our country and emphasises for us the duty we have to build a better country for our children.

Once again, as we observe this occasion, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) takes this opportunity to extend greetings to all Guyanese, home and abroad.

As we commemorate this day, all Guyanese are urged to reflect on the many sacrifices our foreparents made to advance our country and better our lives.

We are urged to recognise that the sacrifices of all our ancestors will be in vain if those who wish to divide us are allowed to succeed.

After their grueling journeys at various points in our history to arrive here and despite the hardships they faced, they were selfless in their efforts to not just build for our betterment but remained steadfast in ensuring the preservation of the various cultural traditions, which continue to instill values, enrich and shape our lives.

Those deliberate efforts have led to the creation of this multi-cultural and multi-religious society of ours where there is immense pride in diversity imbuing us all with strength as we share and participate in the various festivals that have come to identify us as a people.

Over time, those events have served to strengthen bonds of togetherness among our people.

The sacrifices and achievements of our foreparents will remain a source of inspiration for our efforts to build a prosperous and unified nation that is home to all of us.

Happy Arrival Day to All!
