APNU+AFC must sanction Sherod Duncan

 

HELP & Shelter condemns the video disseminated by Member of Parliament, Mr. Sherod Duncan, and calls for its immediate removal, investigation and sanction of Mr. Sherod Duncan for choosing to disseminate material which is distasteful, verbally insulting, demeaning and disrespectful not only to the Minister of Education but to all women of Guyana.

We also call on APNU+AFC to take immediate action to also sanction this sitting Member of Parliament. We further call on the National Assembly and Parliament of Guyana to ensure a comprehensive code of conduct is disseminated to each and every parliamentarian with appropriate sanctions for breaches of such a code without fear or favour in and out of Parliament.

As all of us should know, Guyana has one of the highest levels of domestic violence globally, a crime and human rights violation which is rooted in gender inequality, the subordination of women, discrimination and norms and practices detrimental to the advancement of women’s rights, dignity and status.

Help & Shelter would like parliamentarians of all genders, persons in positions of authority and decision makers to understand that such behaviour is unacceptable and reflects how far Guyana still has to go towards the full emancipation and respect of women of every ethnicity in Guyana.

Opposition has consistently lied to its supporters
Harmon has to recognize the government of the day

Guyana Diaspora Online Forum

We have a large database of Guyanese worldwide.  Most of our readers are in the USA, Canada, and the UK.  Our Blog and Newsletter  would not only carry  articles and videos on Guyana, but also other articles on a wide range of subjects that may be of interest to our readers in over 200 countries, many of them non-Guyanese  We hope that you like our selections.

It is estimated that over one million Guyanese, when counting their dependents, live outside of Guyana.  This exceeds the population of Guyana, which is now about 750,000.  Many left early in the 50’s and 60’s while others went with the next wave in the 70’s and 80’s.  The latest wave left over the last 20 years. This outflow of Guyanese, therefore, covers some three generations. This outflow still continues today, where over 80 % of U.G. graduates now leave after graduating.  We hope this changes, and soon.

Guyanese, like most others, try to keep their culture and pass it on to their children and grandchildren.  The problem has been that many Guyanese have not looked back, or if they did it was only fleetingly.  This means that the younger generations and those who left at an early age know very little about Guyana since many have not visited the country.  Also, if they do get information about Guyana, it is usually negative and thus the cycle of non-interest is cultivated.

This Guyana Diaspora Online Forum , along with its monthly newsletter, aims at bringing Guyanese together to support positive news, increase travel and tourism in Guyana and, in general, foster the birth of a new Guyana, which has already begun notwithstanding the negative news that grabs the headlines.  As the editor and manager of the publication, I am committed to delivering Blog entries and Newsletters that are politically balanced, and focused on the positive ideas we wish to share and foster among Guyanese.
