PRESS RELEASE People’s National Congress Reform Congress Place, Sophia, Georgetown, Guyana. Saturday, January 31, 2004




PNCR calls for sober judgment in light of attempts by others to provoke civil unrest.

The PNCR has noted with concern the contents of a flyer, which has been faxed and otherwise circulated to offices and to residents of some communities. The flyer accuses the party of planning to unleash a wave of violence across the country on the departure to the USA of its party leader, Mr. Robert Corbin. The PNCR has decided that it must respond to this latest attempt at dangerous trouble-making, whatever its source, not only for the fact that the accusation has no basis in reality, but also for the fact that the flyer has the potential to mislead unaware citizens into taking actions that may provoke conflicts of one sort or another.

The PNCR views this flyer very seriously since its release could be part of a larger plot by evil minds to sully the name of the party and to cause harm to the nation as a whole.

The PNCR calls for calm and sober judgment in these trying times. We urge citizens to remain vigilant and exercise commonsense in the face of an expected series of such ruses aimed at putting our beloved country into greater peril. The party intends to remain focused on ensuring that state-sponsored murder does not ever take root on the soil of Guyana, a soil on which slaves and indentured labourers have spilt precious blood to build this country.
