The Buxton First of August Movement (FAM-Buxton) will hold its Annual Eusi Kwayana Emancipation Symposium on Sunday August 11 at the Friendship Primary School beginning at 6 pm. The topic for this year’s symposium is “The Coming Election and the African Guyanese Emancipation Agenda.”
Given the imminent Oil and Gas economy, FAM-Buxton, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, views the coming elections as a defining moment in Guyana’s history. Towards this end, we feel that there is need for a discussion within the African Guyanese community of the implications of these elections for African Guyanese socio-economic empowerment.
