“All must condemn neo-fascist plan” – PM Nagamootoo

DPI, Guyana, Tuesday, March 10, 2020

Prime Minister, the Honourable Moses Nagamootoo is calling on all Guyanese and organisations to “immediately condemn an Opposition-devised plan, which if implemented, could be tantamount to waging an undeclared war of genocide against the urban population.”

In a statement by the Prime Minister, he noted his observation on social media “an insurrection and bloody plan to shut down the country, and to cause widespread acts of terrorism and economic sabotage.”

The plan was issued by the “1953 Movement”, an apparent People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) front which is advising that they “take full control over all six regions they won”.

According to Prime Minister Nagamootoo, “this plan aims at isolating and starving the people of Georgetown, the capital which comprises the single largest section of Guyana’s mainly Afro-Guyanese population. “No agricultural produces should reach the city”, one of several manuals stated. Another urged closure of businesses in the city, especially bakeries.”

He noted that it is evident that this “seditious exercise” is an attempt to destabilise the country and to promote racist insurrection in Guyana. Prime Minister Nagamootoo further urged all Guyanese to condemn this plan.

Citizens were also urged to not be provoked and intimidated by divisive tactics. He called on them to remain calm, keep the peace and all disputes over the outcome of the March 2 elections to be adjudicated by the constitutional court and the Guyana Elections Commission.
