“Eight years ago, eleven innocent Guyanese; five children and six adults, were slaughtered during the massacre on the morning of January 26, 2008 by merciless gunmen,” stated the IAC in a press release.

The event on January 26, 2016, which will commence at 17:00 hrs (5:00 p.m.) at Tract “A” Lusignan (the place of the horrific crime), will be done in collaboration with the relatives of the slain victims, residents of Lusignan and the religious community.

The IAC said that over the years, it has worked with the relatives, residents of Lusignan and the religious community in commemorating this event in an effort to ensure that the memories of those whose lives were snuffed out would not fade into oblivion.

The IAC has extended invitations to both Government officials and members of the Opposition, among others. The general public is invited.

Those killed in the massacre were; Clarence Thomas, 48; Vanessa Thomas, 12; Ron Thomas, 11; Mohandan Goordat, 32; Seegopaul Harilall, 10; Seegobin Harilall, 4; Dhanwajie Ramsingh, 52; Seecharran Rooplall, 56; Raywattie Ramsingh, 11; Shazam Mohammed, 22; and Shaleem Baksh, 52.

    You bet the PNC from top to bottom knows nothing about this::
    Were these the faces of depressors that were depressing PNC people so much so that PNC people had to become freedom fighters to take out the depressors?
    Not even in the court they could get justice.
    Every Guyanese knows why.
