Bai Shan Lin ships 1,200 containers of logs annually
…refuses to maintain 100km of road it destroys daily
By Gary Eleazar
A significant escalation in logging activities over the last three years in Region Ten has led directly to the destruction of the more than 200 kilometres of roadway between Kwakwani, Linden and Georgetown.
According to official figures, an average of 40 heavily laden trucks traverse the worsening stretch of road each day between Kwawkani to Linden. They are also met by others heading to Georgetown, thus destroying that stretch of road also.
The majority of the trucks on the Kwakwani to Linden road belongs to, or contracted by Chinese logging company, Bai Shan Lin, which has also significantly escalated its activities in the Region. Continue reading

STEREOTYPING… BASIC FLAW OF PPP
At the very outset of the PPP coming to power 22 years ago, they introduced a very bipolar administrative structure. They vehemently refused to do business with blacks and other visible minorities. As a result built a facade of distrust, disdain and disgust between and among the populace.

And now that the PPP has taken the brash and brazen step to suspend parliament, regret is not a prescription for redemption. Continue reading

Private jet, private money, private space in a drug country

The US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is a strange outfit. Only God can actually tell a Guyanese how the DEA operates with regard to its surveillance in Guyana. There are times you want to believe that Guyana is not on the DEA radar at all, or that the DEA has little interest in extirpating drug trafficking and money laundering in this country. It could be that the DEA is not the formidable and competent organization that the world thinks it is.
In Guyana, the average limer across a “110th Street” (a term in local lingo, taken from the famous Anthony Quinn movie on police racism and drug trafficking in the ghetto titled, across 110th Street), the inner core of Georgetown, knows who the drug traffickers and money launderers are.
