MESSAGE ON THE 34TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE REPUBLIC OF
PNCR extends Mashramani greetings to all Guyanese as we celebrate
the Anniversary of our Republican Status.
the occasion of this 34th Anniversary,
the Peoples National Congress
Reform is sad
to note that there is little cause for optimism in these dark
times that now beset us as a Nation. In spite of the chaos,
administrative incompetence, economic decline, nepotism,
violations of the Rule of Law, infringement of fundamental human
rights and the evidence of state sponsored death squads,
we enjoin all Guyanese at home and abroad
to have confidence that our ingenuity, patriotism and goodwill can
overcome these trying times.
Republic Anniversary and the Mashramani celebrations that decorate
them are themselves a tribute to that spirit of patriotism. Just a
few short years ago many of those now in authority sought to
devalue and destroy the Mashramani festival causing many Guyanese
to fear that the festival would die under the weight of official
sabotage and suffocation. However, the indomitable spirit of the
people prevailed and it proved impossible to quench the Mashramani
and the Republic Anniversary coincide with the commemoration of
the 1763 slave revolution, one of the noblest and most courageous
historical events in the pursuit of our freedom and dignity. As
we celebrate the anniversary of our Republic, let us spare some
time to reflect on the many lessons that can be learnt from that
first struggle for freedom in our land.
the pall of death squads and state murderers hang over us, we call
on all Guyanese to celebrate the Anniversary of the Republic,
confident that the will of the people, the forces of decency and
the rule of law will eventually prevail if we keep the faith and
continue the struggle together.
PNCR reassures all Guyanese that the struggle will continue to
ensure that evil doers will not be allowed to crush the spirit of
the people of Guyana and that decency and respect for the Rule of
Law will return to our dear land.
LIVE THE REPUBLIC OF GUYANA!
