The New Guyanese and Global Uprising
Very well aware of the product that is
us—Guyanese, a battle against capitalism is certain for our progression,
which will initiate only after we liberate ourselves from the dreams and
aspirations that exclude our continual fight for the eradication of poverty,
which has been allowed to imbue itself deep within our society as a persistent
and malignant stain. One cannot elaborate enough the necessity of the
complete elimination of poverty for the mental and physical development
of Guyana and the rest of the ‘Third World’ nations and its
people—for with even a trace of poverty within our society, one
sees proof of the continuing corruption and oppressive effect capitalism—imperialism
is having upon us.
The creation of a New Guyana without ethical limitations of any single
Guyanese, and the belief in equality for all Guyanese has to show itself
in the near future. Now is the time for action, for the days of pleading,
hoping, and wordy speeches without action has come to pass very long ago.
We cannot persist in sitting idly by watching the very essence of a Guyana
that “could be be”, crumble before our very eyes.
And the abandonment of Guyana (that is not an answer), is a step the imperialists
and their offspring (the United States of North America, Britain, France,
Canada, etc.), want you, the upset Guyanese, to make use of—because
the Guyanese immigrant, and any other immigrant for that matter, is one
of the most valuable products these industrialized, capitalist nations
can buy off the leaders and military of the ‘Third World’.
Without any strain of doubt, the reforming of Guyanese thought has to
take place. The number of brainwashed and bewildered Guyanese in our country
and out is, as I’ve known for too long, astounding.
Too many Guyanese have picked up the American veneer, too many have lost
pride in being Guyanese, and too many have lost the will to fight for
the rights all Guyanese deserve, not only as the children of our nation,
but as a human being in general.
A history that is not heard enough of, the ignorant racist that is the
product of colonialism, the leader who catalyses our dwindling hope…all
of which hinder our march, together, for a better life in Guyana and around
the globe. We must fight against these obstacles of our steps forward.
The patriotism of Guyanese—even the strongest of Guyana’s
children fail in coping with the present state of affairs when fate tests
them. Very little of us are strong enough to trudge through the battering
events that quickly destroy the weak and cause them to flee.
The new fight for the freedom and equality of our people will not be won
without the great sacrifice we must, in all necessity, make—whatever
your great sacrifice may be to for you to fight for Guyana – whether
it’s a speech, persistent protest, writing articles, educating people,
And the slogan we must follow: “Victory or Death”.
The people of Guyana have to adapt a nationalistic, revolutionary, and
aggressive mentality, and stand without fear—together, as one, against
our common foe that is the policies of mainly the US and British Elites.
We must face and destroy our enemies whom we must learn, analyze with
communist ethics, and act against. Then and only then will our enemies
and their oppressive system fall. Then is when the New Guyana and Global
order will rise like a red star with the blood our ardent characters.
For some Guyanese today, my asking and comments may be too much, and,
I imagine, the spilling of so much innocent blood by criminals, the countless
Guyanese whom we see day after day, hungry, homeless and suffering, a
government with a system that makes dictions in their own favour—all
these atrocities—does not enrage them enough.
When I speak to most Guyanese, especially the ones residing in the U.S.
of North America, I feel the love with which they speak of Guyana, but,
as in many cases, they fear to live there and seek justice. Others say,
“Guyana has nothing to offer…” The truth of the matter
is that for hundreds of thousands of Guyanese—form generations past
to present, Guyana has had “nothing to offer”. And so, with
that as an excuse for fleeing Guyana, she has remained a drowning, imperialists’
stepping-stone for the many generations who are to inherit her.
And a possible paradise continues to roam—lost at the hands of the
In the cases of any “Third World” nation that is continuing
to trek the path without direction or light, a change of course has to
be made and a new trail has to be ploughed by its people. The matter of
optimum importance is our unity while breaking away from the norm and
discovering new paths to progression.
We have continuously demonstrated our ability to survive under harsh and
abnormal circumstances. The government of Guyana has proven itself to
be blood-sucking dead weight on our shoulders and has us struggling to
hold on, hoping we won’t slip any further than we already are into
the furnace that they created—this has stagnated us and the chaste
system makes us fight to maintain the status quo of present, hence, the
rich will remain rich, the poor will remain poor, and there will be no
change. And the Guyana we know will endure, day after day, year after
year, as a dog eat dog, ‘Third World’ nation, where the rich
will continue to stand tall and clean on the proletariat’s back
as he/she sinks deeper into the mud.
Guyanese have to strive not as individuals, but as a united band of hard
workers, and a team of New Communist men and women, towards a brighter
future in Guyana, the land that is ours. We have to start making the decisions,
we are the people of the Republic – we are Guyana. Of course, as
I’ve said, sacrifices will have to be made—what we have to
vow is that they will not be made in vain as we start and persist in the
struggle for self sufficiently and equality until we have achieved our
ultimate goal: a great United Republic of Guyana which will sustain and
progress as new generations rise, again and again. Any sacrifice that
could produce such results is never enough. So what if it doesn’t?
Well, let us go down with a fight.
