What started as a protest over the recent police killing of Quindon Bacchus yesterday escalated into mayhem along the East Coast of Demerara (ECD), where persons were robbed and property was destroyed, raising serious questions about the performance of the police.

The blocking of the main East Coast corridor at several points for most of the day yesterday inconvenienced large numbers of commuters and tear gas and pellets were fired by the police at several locations to restore order.

Last night, the police said that the road at Enmore to Golden Grove, ECD had been cleared by the Joint Services and is being monitored. It said that the Joint Services will maintain their presence along to East Coast carriageway to ensure that peace is kept.


But as the protests continue, Ali in a statement on his Facebook page wrote: “Today, a man threatened my life. And, the Member of Parliament who filmed it did not denounce the statement”.

This is a personal issue between 2 afro guyanese that resulted in a death. why are these thugs taken it out on innocent indians and destroying their business and vehicles.

That's the problem with guyana. I know for a long time now that guyana will never prosper.

stuff like this has been going on since guyana independence.

So then why use the term "Indians." Why not say Guyanese? Indians are citizens from India and who live in India, not Guyanese of South Asian Ancestry. Are you not not proud of being Guyanese that you have to refer to yourself as Indian when clearly you are not Indian? Isn't Guyana the land you call home and your country?

Why make this a racial issue? Can't you simply say there was a citizens protest nd some citizens allegedly attacked other citizens? Why the need for the racism apparently directed against Guyanese of African ancestry who have demonstrated a greater love and affection for their country?

Are all Afro Guyanese guilty of violence?

This racist narrative against all Afro Guyanese anytime there is protest and violence is now getting old and stale.

Yes, find the guilty persons responsible for the violence and let the law takes it course and stop this racist crap.

That act of violence was direct at indo guyanese and was done by afro guyanese.

They pass by plaisance market why they didn't vandalise that market because mostly afro guyanese are vendors there.

They planned this riot and the target was mon repos market because indo guyanese are vendors there.

Indo guyanese have nothing to do with the policeman and his wife childfather business. That was a personal problem between 2 afro guyanese.

So why the protest and harassment against innocent indo guyanese people. Afro guyanese always have the backing and support of the police force.

Govt have to find a way to balance the police force and army.

Guyana police force and army is 95% afro guyanese.

Army always control the country everywhere in the world.

myanmar is a good example. Army rule.

It's why North america they hire their own for police force.

It's a racial issue the because the blacks made it so.

It is a police v. Citizen issue.


no not all black guyanese are guilty but they do nothing to quell violence from the willing.
