The Alliance For Change extends greetings to all Guyanese on the occasion of Guyana’s 52nd Anniversary as a Cooperative Republic. Republic Day or Mashramani as it is more commonly known has become for our nation a time of celebration and taking pride in nationhood.
Regretfully, this year, the traditional road bands and costume float parade has again been set aside due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Nevertheless, let us take the opportunity to remind ourselves that we are a strong people capable of overcoming any challenge that face us as a sovereign nation.
Mashramani 2022 comes at a time of significant hardship for many of our people, especially those of low or modest income, when the price of every commodity has escalated beyond the reach of many families, when the divide between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have not’ is growing wider. In these circumstances it is understandable why many ask, “What is there to celebrate?”
In these circumstances, the Alliance For Change reminds that we are a people, born of great sacrifice, our ancestors shed their blood that we may inherit this fertile and resource rich land. Let us resolve ourselves to make this land of our birth a better place and to fight against oppression and victimization. Let us be resolute in our belief that this country belongs to all of us.
Better must come!
