THE GUYANA I WANT| Says No to Sexual Violence!

According to the Guyana Police Force statistics for the month of July 2016, there has been a 17% decrease in reported rapes from January to July 2016 compared to the same time period last year (243 in 2015 to 201 in 2016).

Talk about issues that worry them, about race, about unfair treatment, about political misfortunes, about the Guyana they live in and even… Continue reading YOUTH, ACTIVISM, AND THE INSANITY OF GUYANA’S ‘TALKSHOP’ CULTURE
