Just came from the Rally. Not a large crowd but a good cause. Congrats to Vish. He is indeed our Community Leader!!

Anytime you hang with Vishnu it is never a large crowd. Did you find out what impact/coverage your rally received? Did the Sikhs back your rally this time? Indo-Guyanese got a big problem to do anything that can turn NYC upside down. Yall isn't ready yet.

Nehru, 

Thank you for your kind words

Before the Rally started I was bombarded with a series of Fake, APNU and Do Not Support petitions and postings on Facebook

So I elected to stand up to these spineless detractors 

We have the newest Assemblywoman Jennifer Rajkumar, Pastor Tony Durjan, Attorney Grant lally, Darmin Bachu Esq., Dr Tara Singh, Bramchari Yogesh just to mention a few

This was about Democracy for Guyana

They are not saying what happened at the rally.  Who were the speakers and what did they say?

The Diaspora Council of New York held a  meeting at Independence Square, Liberty Avenue in front of the famous Sybil’s Restaurant. The purpose was to give Guyanese and others a platform, other than social media, to express their views on the electoral impasse in Guyana. The coordinator was community leader Vishnu Mahadeo.

The small program began with opening prayers by religious leaders, who were very articulate and knowledgeable of the Guyana political crisis. They prayed for the upholding of democracy and the dispensing of Justice. They also praised Barbados Prime Minister and Caricom Chair for her strong comments regarding the political situation, and emphasized the need that every vote must be counted.

They priests urged Guyanese to be patient and wait on the Caribbean Court of Justice’s ruling on an appeal regarding the adding of β€œwords” to the constitution, among others, brought by Dr Bharrat Jagdeo and President-elect Dr Irfaan Ali. The CEO of Gecom has used this alteration of the constitution to reverse the PPPC’s victory and make the PNCR coalition the winner  by disenfranchising over 25% (115,000) of the electorate, the majority of which are votes cast for the PPPC.


The Diaspora Council also issued a statement in support of Ms Mia Mottley and condemned the virulent attack on an accomplished Caribbean stateswoman.

There was the guest appearance of Jennifer Rajkumar who won the Democratic primary to dethrone Assembly Member Mike Miller. It’s the first time that an Indian would be elected to the New York State Assembly. She expressed support for the democratic process in Guyana and hope that the election fiasco comes to an end with the ruling of the Caribbean Court of Justice.

Mr Grant M Lally, a Republican of Long Island shared some factual and interesting information at the meeting. He said that the elections were the best he and others had ever witnessed. The process was robust. Mr Lally said that they knew the results shortly after the conduct of polls and that the PPPC won the elections. He was a member of the Carter Center Observation team.

Vishnu mentioned of the need to support Guyanese back home as many of them are on the verge of starvation. He emphasized: β€œAmerica is the bedrock of democracy and we must never compromise on democratic ideals.”

Why you couldn't give us a section of the crowd or attendees? 

Independence Square? when did the portion of land in front of Sybil's legally renamed to independence square?

Everybody used to have a kitchen garden and a fowl pen in their back yard.  What happened to them. It is a popular belief that they wait for the next barrel to arrive because the desperados encouraged it.
