Misleading report triggers violent protest across 15 East Coast villages

Protestors began their march from Golden Grove, passed through the villages of Haslington, Enmore, Paradise, Enterprise, Melanie, Coldingen, Bladen Hall, Strathspey, Vigilance, Friendship, Buxton, Annandale, Lusignan, Good Hope and stopped at Mon Repos, although they were reportedly heading for Georgetown.

Roads were blocked with debris and burning tyres while scores of people were beaten and robbed. Market stalls and business places were looted and several vehicles were torched.

As they approached Annandale, tensions were high and violence erupted. Kaieteur News understands that a supermarket in that area was stormed and looted. Vendors at the Annandale Market were attacked

The Mon Repos Market suffered the worst – the atmosphere there was chaotic. Stalls were destroyed and some burnt even as vendors were beaten and robbed, and vehicles were vandalised and then torched.

Is this political violence or is it legitimate protest gone awry?

Either way, poor people are the pawns.

I saw this article and it upset me.

pnc tuggs always have to harassed innocent people.

let the court handle these matters.

it's always pnc people doing these barberic stuff in guyana.

do not harassed innocent people.

this is why police in america shoot and ask questions later.

All those looters and tuggs should be arrested immediately.

Look...these goons always use a protest as an excuse to beat, rob and loot...and Indo Guyanese always bear the brunt of this

This fcukery must stop

Posters with a social conscience on racist behaviour, where are you? The silence is deafening. No word from your brethren Chrissy?

Reading this thread, I get the sense that black people in Guyana are violent looters. goons, and “tuggs” (thugs?) who beat up and rob innocent Indo Guyanese who are peaceful, law abiding,
and never do anybody anything

Furthermore, this characterization apparently extends to black people everywhere and justifies police action in America where they shoot black people indiscriminately.

Excellent defence, victimize the aggrieved then turn to indignation. Works well in politics.
“There are good people on both sides” defence.

Be wise and keep out of muddie matters

CITYBOY 2022-06-30 15:03:16 

It’s unreal and sad. Police force standing by doing nothing.. calls made to police station resulted in nothing..
But I don’t blame the police as the hooligans were armed etc .. but failure to act immediately by getting extra army/ police leaves a bad taste.
This is how it is in Guyana... the forces just let things run wild.
The looting and burning was uncalled for.. people beaten up ..

Guyana Police is basically the rioters in uniform they will never stop black rioters from doing their thing.

Indian lives matter: Cotton Tree 2020, Mon Repos 2022 - Freddie Kissoon

Kaieteur News – My column was already in when the protestors physically attacked Indian vendors and robbed them at Mon Repos. I could have submitted a replacement article but I wanted to see what the usual suspects would have written in the newspaper the next day on the attack on Indian vendors at Lusignan and Mon Repos by the protestors from Golden Grove

Here is a theory of mine as to why protestors angry at a police killing took to the streets passed several villages from Golden Grove going west on the East Coast highway but only attacked Indian people.

I hope they never reoccur as Guyana continues to make economic progress. But I am afraid we will see Cotton Tree 2020 and Mon Repos again until Indian people internalise the lessons of previous anti-Indian mayhems and come up with a repertoire of strategies to confront the psychic infusion that Cotton Tree 2020 and Mon Repos 2022 have brought about in African protestors

As some posters seh “Dem gone cuntry “.

Jeremy 2022-06-30 19:49:26 

What bother me is they target Mon Repos market because they know mostly indo guyanese are venders there.

Why they didn't do this at plaisance market or stabroek market.

I strongly believe this was planned by pnc/apnu govt.

Guyana govt needs to balance the police force and army if not these acts will repeat itself.

Police just stand and watch in guyana.

It's why in north america they hire majority white police.

I know guyanese who apply to join police force in canada but they were turn down.

I've always said without control of the police and army PPP will never really control Guyana.

All dem dem Indian need to get over the notion that police and army os dawg wuk.

Jagdeo need to start some serious campaign to enlist Indians into the army and police

They need some army base in berbice where indo guyanese live.

I hear stories that when indo guyanese join army they are being harassed and force to leave.

i suggest unnuh split Guyana in two- Indo Guyana and Afro Guyana

may solve the problem dont you think?

Jeremy 2022-07-01 11:12:37 

In reply to sudden

Guyanese have to educate themselves.

The current govt the ppp has members of all races. minister of home arraires is a afro guyanese.

minister of foreign affaires is also afro guyanese. So the ppp has rep from all the different races.

check the guyana govt ppp cabinet. They have rep from every background.

What went on in guyana with this riot was uncalled for.

This police issue with another man is a personal matter and had nothing to do with politics.

sudden 2022-07-01 11:29:30 

In reply to Jeremy

you may be correct there.

but i think to solve the problem on a more permanent basis an all indo guyana and an all afro guyana would be better.

the Portuguese and native Guyanese and others can decide which part they want to live or just stay where they are now.

Hopefully with more oil money and better standard of living all this political problem in guyana will go away permanently.

or how about a truth and reconciliation commission? so that everyone can air their grievances and chart a path forward

Curtis 2022-07-01 17:20:02 

In reply to sudden

Truth and reconciliation will further exacerbate the situation. Perps will be further exposed, and necessitate more violence

You assume that people want to move forward.

Some dont know what is the "forward" you speak of, they revel in drinking the blood of others while basking in a self imagery of freedom fighter. Its very intoxicating.

steveo 2022-07-02 16:04:24 

Point 1. These fellas travelled 15 miles from their protest location until they found the nice indo area with easy picking. They then beat, burned and burgled the indos.

Point 2. The PPP admin and the police stood by until AFTER. This thing was live across social media as the criminals was moving down the road. I believe it was deliberately allowed to happen in order to gather more mud to sling at the APNU(who are hand in hand with the protestors).

So PPP supporters, dont belive your party has anything but their pockets on their minds. You are the last of their concerns. They will let you get beaten and murdered so they can then use that to yell on the rooftops at the next elections.

If I am wrong about it being deliberate then Guyana has started to adopt the US policy of allowing criminals to destroy law abiding population to appease them, which means they are fcuking WEAK and AFRAID. If they cannot stand up for law abiding citizens you are UNFIT to rule the country.

Sad fcuking place, this guyana. God should wash it skunt into the seas.

That’s fair assessment! It’s sad state of affairs in my beloved country. Can’t believe this is the same area, Melanie Damishana, ECD, to be exact where I stayed in March and patronize the vendors in Mon Repos as well as Buxton. SMH!
