[www.inewsguyana.com] – Some members of the Alliance For Change (AFC) took to the streets on Friday, January 16, protesting in front of the United States Embassy, Kingston Georgetown, calling for the visas of government ministers to be revoked.
Executive Members of the AFC, Michael Carrington told Reporters that the People’s Progressive Party government is violating the rights of the constitution and the people of Guyana and as such, the US should revoke their visas.
“We are calling on the US embassy to remove visas from all government officers. We think they are violating the constitution, they are violating the rights of the people and as such we think their visas should be removed. There is unjust to the people of Guyana.”
Additionally, Columnist Freddie Kissoon, who supported the AFC’s protest, called on the ABC countries to implement sanctions against the government for proroguing Guyana’s Parliament.
“The time has come for the ABC Countries – America, Britain and Canada to act against this government. We will like to remind the US embassy that one of its Ambassadors, Bullen had used VISA as a democratic weapon of sanction.
“What we have is the ABC countries literally saying that democracy has been weakened with the prorogation of Parliament. So it’s time now for them to act,” Kissoon said.
The Columnist also called on the Opposition Political Parties to up its ante against the administration.
“With the New Year ahead, the Christmas season is gone, we think it’s time the Opposition step up action on all fronts.”
