Remembering Harry Bhai of Port Mourant
SOCIAL and political activism plays a very vital role in bringing about social and political (and by extension economic) changes for the betterment of a society. In every village in Guyana, there are a few individuals who take a lead role in social and political activism to improve community, and by extension, national life. They are unsung heroes
Tearing Apart and Selling Oil Pipelines – May Guyana be Spared
May this never be the fate of Guyana! May our leaders and citizens all look, listen, and learn from what is happening in Venezuela! We call upon fellow Guyanese to pay attention to an article in Bloomberg dated September 11, which was titled, “Venezuela is tearing apart oil pipelines to sell as scrap metal.” This is how bad things have gone with ou

Traveling in Georgetown, Guyana

We must be able through the strength of our friends to demonstrate that military aggression will be repelled
Guyana is a small peaceful country. Our borders were clearly demarcated and internationally accepted in law through the 1899 Arbitral Award. Decades later Venezuela claimed, and still claims that this Award is null and void. It continues to occupy the half of Ankoko Island which belongs to Guyana and is able to do so because we are militarily infer

Guyana is an Amerindian word meaning "the land of many waters."
  Culture Name Guyanese Orientation Identification. Guyana is an Amerindian word meaning "the land of many waters." Attempts to forge a common identity have foundered, and it is more accurate to speak of African, Indian, and Amerindian Guyanese cultures.

It is said that hypocrisy is the audacity to preach integrity from a den of corruption. We have had too many of false “saviours”. Their empty promises mean no good.A liar begins by making falsehood appear like truth, and ends with making truth itself appear like falsehood.With our country trying to disentangle from an unnecessary electoral twist, a

Guyana Diaspora 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.
