Brock Holt Jersey says executive member Members of the Alliance For Change

– Embassies have a moral obligation to support democracy and the upholding of the rights of the citizenry – says executive member Members of the Alliance For Change (AFC) protested outside the Embassy of the United States of America in Kingston, Georgetown calling for the American authorities to enforce visa sanctions on all Ministers ofThe AFC protestors outside the US Embassy, Kingston,Cheap Jerseys, Georgetown.the government,China NFL Jerseys, until general elections are held.Given the inclement weather yesterday morning, the AFC members armed themselves with umbrellas and held high, several placards some of which read, “No Democracy, No Visas,Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale,” “Guyanese Democracy stripped naked,Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping,” and “No Visas for Corrupt Ministers.”The Opposition party members said that they felt such a move was necessary and that embassies have a moral obligation to support democracy and even the rights of the citizenry which is enshrined in the Constitution.Kaieteur News columnist,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, Frederick Kissoon, said that the picket is just the beginning of a relentless drive to show the government that the electorate has had it with its dictatorial leadership style.Kissoon said that the AFC wants to appeal to the embassies of the ABC (America, Britain and Canada) countries to implement visa sanctions for three areas of venality. These he said are the move to prorogue the Parliament, unimaginable scales of corruption and immoral behaviour by government ministers such as Attorney General, Anil Nandlall.He was making reference to Nandlall who, he said, was “caught with his pants down” in a recorded conversation with a Kaieteur News reporter. The Minister of Legal Affairs had told the journalist of a looming violent attack on the lives of staff attached to this publication.Kissoon emphasized that the AFC feels that it is time for the embassies to act in a timely manner. He then sought to remind that former US Ambassador to Guyana, Roland Bullen, had adopted the approach of revocation of visas of government officials. He said that there are several examples of such.“Under Bullen that was used as a deterrent and more, there are at least ten examples where visas were denied to government officials and nefarious friends …We think there is sufficient evidence of violations of democracy in Guyana for them to act. We know the US global reach is extensive and once they start the rest are going to fall in line. The power holders are going beyond redemption and it’s time for action,” Kissoon asserted.Another AFC member,Stitched Jerseys, Raymond Hall, told the media that the government operating in a place where there is now absolutely no means to keep it in check, is a scary reality. He said that democracy has deteriorated to a worrying stage; it is time that Guyanese stand up and let their voices be heard.Hall believes that the power of the US Embassy to apply visa sanctions, can be a useful tool and perhaps, may bring some of the governmental officials “to their senses.”The protestor insisted that there needs to be some level of corrective action. He said that the move to revoke visas will send a strong message to the government, that the Guyanese people are not completely helpless in the face of the People’s Progressive Party/ Civic (PPP/C).Executive Member of the AFC, Nelson McKenzie, added that visa sanctions are necessary. He reminded that the protest is only the beginning of a series of actions that will be taken by the AFC as it hopes to continue highlighting abuses by the state.He added, “We want to educate the people of this country of their rights…this government used comfortably and confidently, the option to prorogue the Parliament which has basically denied the people of having their rights represented at the legislative level. The embassies have a moral obligation in supporting the rights and privileges of the people as stated in the Constitution and even democratic principles such as freedom of the press.”
