"Every time Guyana experience a change of Government or suffered a spike in the crime rate, especially when one group feels that they are being marginalized, there is a call for partition... With the popularity of the internet and social networking sites, the call for partition has risen to new heights. For instance there was a petition online asking for the partition of Guyana on a private Facebook account, accompanied by an already partitioned map of Guyana. It received twenty votes in favour of such an idea. There was also the same number of likes. However, thirty five persons shared it on their Facebook pages. Thus, the idea of partition in present day Guyana is not alien to most. The idea of partitioning modern Guyana can be attributed to a call made by Eusi Kwayana in 1961 as a solution to the race problem the country was experiencing. It can be granted that the concept of partition means different things to different people..."
The excerpt above is taken from this document. Prashad is not alone; from Eusi Kwayana to some people today, the idea of separate territories for Indos and Afros has been posited as one possible solution to Guyana's longstanding racial conflict.
