AFC fails to attract crowds on Essequibo Coast

THE Alliance For Change (AFC) failed to attract large crowds at the two public meetings it held on the Essequibo Coast over last weekend.

Reports said the meeting at Anna Regina Car Park was poorly attended as Essequibians openly rejected its policies. Even as its Presidential Candidate, Mr. Khemraj Ramjattan spoke, only a few people stood up in the large open area. Many said they were not interested in what he was saying and walked away.

At Charity, on Sunday afternoon, the attendance was worse as no one seemed to take interest and there was no gathering.

The AFC then took its campaign to RCA TV Channel 7, where they hoped to get an audience. However, one person who was viewing the programme said Ramjattan appeared annoyed and continued attacking the Government.

The person said he switched off his television and went to bed, noting that the AFC has a weak and poor presence on Essequibo Coast.

That is the big difference between PPP and AFC meetings.
The PPP bus people from places where other rallies will be held, but people attend AFC meetings on their own free will, because of their genuine interest.

It is stupid for the PPP to do this false pretense and everyone knows about it.
Plus each person can only vote once and the PPP might be in for a bigger shock on election day, unless they have plans to rig the election.

Is there anywhere where the AFC has been attracting any crowd?

The Obituary of the AFC has been written, only time which seems very soon, for its demise to become yet another norm.


Peace - let us wait - 7 weeks to go.


PPP/C majority victory again in about seven weeks. Big Grin

You know you all AFC people should stop your nonsense. Its becoming increasingly apparent that your endless focus on Region 6 has cost you support.

Yes the PPP can bus in "supporters". They can get them to the polling stations too. Its abvious that the AFC cannot do this.

So stop making excuses and understand that you all made two mistakes.

1. In stead of having a continuous campaign since 2006 to build up a strong grass roots organization you all went to sleep until recently.

2. You then concentrated most of your efforts on the Corentyne coast in response to accusations of some AFC members that Ramjattan ha sno support base.


At this late stage you are now running around other regions to find that people have written you all off. You cant win and you no longer carry that excitement of "newness" that you had. You all now have a track record, and it was one of laziness while in parliament.

Clearly not.

They have two excuses.

1. In PPP areas they say people are afraid to come out. This might be valid as most still support the PPP in those areas (they just dont like Jagdeo) and will socially isolate "traitorsd"...or do even worse.

2. In PNC areas they say turn out doesnt matter but then it suddenly matters when the PPP also fails to get a decent turn out.

Since last year I said that the AFC had to get more active. Now one year later we see what the results of their inactivity has been. NO ONE IS INTERESTED IN THEM!!!!
It is a given that the PPP will win the upcoming general elections.

However, I am not confident that they will garner 50% of the votes.

Many Indians will vote for the AFC, however, you will not see them at AFC rallies, you might even find them at PPP rallies. Reason being that they are weary of the witch hunting techniques of the PPP.

I am on the ground and you are wrong, you folks including Caribj are reading the national inquirer the same propaganda apparatus which you know is run by the PPP and you are ignoring the facts gerald is putting on here which is the PPP are having worse attendance at their meetings and they are the incumbents.

Caribj you should be ashamed for pushing PPP propaganda from the national inquirer. Give me a break. I can assure you the people in Region 4,5,6 and 10 knows clearly who the winner of these elections will be.

The contest is not going to be won here where Caribj seems hell bent on beating up the AFC and the PPP because his PNC is dead as a duck.

So why dont blacks go to AFC rallies? The PPP is already punishing them for no reason that they are blacks so they have nothing to lose.

I DAILY since 2002 call them a racist bunch of corrupt and incompetent theives who are as bad as Burnham was....this is peddling PPP propaganda???????

FACT. Few go to AFC meetings. FACT. This means that they have little support. FACT. Unless the AFC does something about this instead of inventing "nanci stories" about winning the election they will lose badly.


Further Facts.

1. FACT....the PPP has mechanisms to bus zimbies to vote...Lumumba, Nascimento, McLean and other ex PNC thugs are there to teach them how they did it in 1973.

2. FACT...as we have seen with that PNC clown Hamilton soup tastes mighty good when one is hungry and thirsty and there is only one source of food...given that every one except AFC and PNC fanatics know the PPP "bound to win".

3. FACT...the PPP can give out goodies to blacks and Amerindians with the threat that this will be taken back if they dont vote PPP. They have already told people in Sophia this and I am sure elsewhere.

4. FACT people who do business with the govt will be afraid not to vote as they dont beleive that ballaots are secret and they know how vicious the PPP is. The AFC couldnt protect them against "His Excellency" (look at poor Sharma losing m,oney in teh pre Xmas season) so many will cover their hides by voting PPP.

5. FACT. most rural Indos are still afraid of "black man rule"...even though they knwo "collie man rule" hasnt bene good for them either. Being abused by one's own (even when they threaten to "set black man like Lumumba on dem" is preferable it appears.
and jags your problem is you are only looking at the Indian vote and because the PPP isnt as assured of getting their usual 95% you panic.

You will call me racist for accusing you of displaying the Indo clannishness that we have long been accustome d to but as usual you dont look at what non Indians are doing. It appears as if these people are non factors so beneath your notice...except to satisfy some physical need of yours.

THEY ARE NOT GOING TO AFC MEETINGS. Last time the AFC got almost all of their votes from this group. If they dont this time where does that leave the AFC?

If most Indos grumble but still v ote PPP where will the AFC get votes from? They have no proof that they will get votes from non Indians. Its seems arrogant for them to conclude that they will.

Their party intelligence ought to let them know that few young blacks plan to vote...most older blacks will either not vote or vote race/habit. So what are they doing to change this?

Why dont you post where I said the PNC will win. I believ almost every tiem I predicetd victory I agve it to the PPP. I also stated that the PNC is a "coconut tree without roots".

I see your PPP behavior too hard for you to put away. Every single black man who isnt some PPP stooge is a PNC.

What a black hating racist little boy you are.

Note that the AFC is always unable to prove they attract significant numbers to meetings so this is a FACT. Not PPP propaganda. They will be judged by this metric as they in turn judge the PPP by it.
