The Indos and Portuguese and Amerindians should propose their own plans and submit to the President too.

Submit projects for funding.

PRESIDENT David Granger has urged the executive of the Cuffy 250 Committee to commence working on plans to develop projects pertaining to Afro-Guyanese.
He told the body and its members during their 5th annual State of the African-Guyanese forum on Sunday at the Critchlow Labour College that the allocation of finances to support such projects can be made in accordance with the United Nations declaration of the International Decade of People of African Descent.
He said in July, the government commenced working on the budget cycle for 2018, and according to him, allocations will have to be decided over the next 10 weeks if plans put forward by the Cuffy 250 body are to be included in the 2018 national budget.
The budget is expected to be presented in the National Assembly in that timeframe.
The President received a report from the Cuffy250 Committee and he noted that there are several elements of the Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) of the United Nations-designated International Decade of People of African Descent which has to be addressed by the committee.

The President highlighted three issues which the CCM body should examine. He listed organisation and education as top priorities, adding that implementation of mechanisms is the most important.
The decade was launched in 2013, and he noted that 1/3 of the 120 months has expired. “So we now have to accomplish in two thirds of that time what we should have accomplished in 10 years,” he said.
He said that the decade is too important to become an opportunity for racial or religious discrimination. “Let us not fight old battles of the past,” he said to the packed audience as they responded with applause.

President Granger told the gathering that the decade must be forward -looking, noting that it is about the next decade and not the previous one.
“My brothers and sisters, the opportunity presented by the United Nations decade is unlikely to present itself during a lifetime,” he added.
Jonathon Adams of the Cuffy250 Committee during an address spoke of the issues which persons of African descent have faced here over the years.
Dr William Adu-Krow , PAHO/WHO Representative in Guyana, said it is particularly important to enhance cohesion and cooperation within society, while recognising the identity and values of all the ethnic groups.

He said that the international decade of people of African descent is a reminder of human rights, dignity and human freedom.
“We have to make a conscious effort to remember the sacrifices of those before us,” he added.
He announced at the forum that a UN working group on the People of African Descent would be visiting Guyana in October 2017 at the request of the government.

Is the United Nations running Guyana. So they declared "International Decade of People of African Descent". What exactly does that mean? Are they going to be providing the funding? That's the only way the leader of a multiracial country should encourage one group in order to take advantage. Otherwise, he is blatantly one sided and a racist. I took quick look and it runs from 2015 to 2024 and nowhere does it say anything about UN Funding. Maybe I missed something?

Even though I agree with you. The problem with the GADAHA is much bigger , deeper and certainly something to worry NOn Afros. This GADAHA has a 1980's  Africa Dictator mentality

And let me reming GNI and state CLEARLY again , our Afro GNI Ian Smith do not see anything wrong with the GADAHA statement, the wearing of African garments or ANYTHING Afro BUT Indian wear and Indian Culture does make that RACIST PIG run to the Outhouse!!!!!!!!!!

Where is Mrs. Granjer ?   Prashad likes the cloths that is being worn and the initiative in accordance with the United Nations declaration of the International Decade of People of African Descent.

I am willing to bet that Granger has no idea of the attire that he is wearing.  Where is it from? What is the significance is it about?  Is he wearing it appropriately?

What makes me laugh is in Lagos the elites dress just like rich American blacks.  In Mumbai they dress like wealthy Londoners.

Most Africans (and even Indians) reserving traditional dress for special events, wearing Western clothing on a daily basis, these being especially true of the professional classes, of which Granger is a part.

A Nigerian warned a black American that if they wear certain facial markings then a Juju might attack them, because that entity will be angered by the desecration. Jujus do cross water and they are more ferocious than any voodoo thing that a black American might get from New Orleans. At least so said the Nigerian. 

Another Nigerian remarked that she saw some attire worn by a black American female at a festive event. Such attire was in fact restricted to garb worn by the widow at the funeral of her husband. In many African traditions if a husband dies his brother has to get married to the widow to keep the marital contract alive.  A Nigerian seeing this might get highly incensed and will think that his cultures is being mocked.

Its like someone walking down the road in a wedding dress to attend a beach event.  In fact one year Kamla Persad, tried to court the Afro T&T vote by spending all August dressed in what she thought was African attire. The Nigerians there laughed and said that her clothes are what is worn at a wedding and she looked quite ridiculous wearing this to go to political meetings in remote rural areas where she had to walk through mud.

So the "fake Africans" and the "fake Indians" can engage in their activity, but cultural mistakes can have consequences as an Afro Guyanese woman who was forcefully approached by a Ghanaian man because her attire suggested to him that she was badly in need of a man.  She was merely being a "fake African for a day" and had no idea as to what she was doing.

Also prashad you may not know this but many of the designs that you see Africans wearing actually originated in Indonesia and were brought to West Africa by the Dutch.  The Africans liked the prints and began to reproduce.

So are those designs really African, or are their an adaptation of Indonesia textiles to suit the tastes of West Africans. Prashad cultures evolve. No pure culture exists anymore.

The UN did declare it and Ramotar did try to pocket some money by "developing" programs to help Afro Guyanese.  He thought that he would impress blacks with his mock concern. Most saw him as they racist thief that he was merely trying to make money off of black people's problems.

Jagdeo was loudly screaming that Guyanese deserved to get Reparations, also with his pocket and mock interest in blacks as his motivation.

Granger is becoming bolder and bolder with his blatant racism as time goes by. He takes care of his base while the PPP made the mistake of ignoring their base.

Why? How exactly are blacks benefitting from Granger?  As some one said at least the PPP ensured that 5% of Indians got rich as they developed a Indo oligarchy.  The fact that 95% of Indians didn't benefit is their own fault as they blindly followed the PPP, even as they fled to Barbados to wash toilets and cut cane.
