GAWU calls on President to practice what he preaches

The Guyana Agricultural Workers Union (GAWU), today, in a public statement condemned  the President and his Administration for not walking the talk. GAWU also urged the APNU/AFC Administration to translate their words in actions and deeds.

GAWU said, “President David Granger is reported in the December 06, 2017 Guyana Chronicle to have said when he spoke at the United Nation’s activity on Combating Pollution in the Extractive Industries at the United Nations Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya that “People must come before profits”. While the GAWU agrees with what the President said, at the same time, we find his remarks to be perplexing and unbelievable. His actions need to be synced with his utterances in Nairobi.”

Below is the full statement from GAWU:
President David Granger is reported in the December 06, 2017 Guyana Chronicle to have said when he spoke at the United Nation’s activity on Combating Pollution in the Extractive Industries at the United Nations Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya that “People must come before profits”. While the GAWU agrees with what the President said, at the same time, we find his remarks to be perplexing and unbelievable. His actions need to be synced with his utterances in Nairobi.

In projecting the view that the people’s well-being must be put ahead of financial gain, we cannot ignore at this very time, that the Government which he heads is pursuing a policy which is doing quite the opposite as we see thousands of Guyanese facing an uncertain future in the very name of profits. For those workers who are being told they are no longer needed, the President’s statement is obviously bewildering and only serves to upset even more.

At this time, the GAWU urges the President and his Administration to walk the talk and to translate his words in actions and deeds. Obviously, the signs of the times call for such an approach if the Government is really caring and intent on delivering us all to the much vaunted and promised ‘Good Life’.
