THE PPP/C government’s recent announcement to correct the historical falsification of the death of revolutionary intellectual Walter Rodney

THE PPP/C government’s recent announcement to correct the historical falsification of the death of revolutionary intellectual Walter Rodney is an extraordinary step in ensuring that Rodney’s contributions to the struggle to remove the Burnhamite dictatorship lives in the conciousness of future generations.

The old saying that one’s man revolutionary is another’s terrorist holds true in reference to Walter. He definitely drove terror into the hearts and minds of Burnham’s PNC dictatorship.
They were mortally afraid of his message of demystifying the racial and class contradictions that were leading to a mass, multi-racial movement threatening the very existence of the Burnhamite dictatorship.

This is the reason for the PNC to deliberately degenerate the status of Rodney by stating that he was unemployed and died due to misadventure. Stating the true nature of Walter’s death by assassination and recognising his prodigious scholarship is due homage to a great patriot.
Correcting the historical misinformation ensures that Walter lives.

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.
