    British Guiana has again reached the stage where she is demanding her independence. Small nations?

  • Description

    British Guiana has again reached the stage where she is demanding her independence. Small nations such as British Guiana still have to demand their independence in the traditional way with protests and mob violence. In reply to this demand the British Government is expected to answer in about a years time.

    At America's insistence Britain had defewed this problem during the premiership of Cheddi Jagan's three years in office.

    British Guiana has many problems - the biggest one is the sea and how to keep it out. The dyke which surrounds the country consumes one tenth of the national budget for the safety of the nation and its people.

    The main produce of the British Guiana is it's sugar-cane which is brought by Britain at high prices. If these prices were not paid the economy would be in a very bad state.

    The General Election which has just finished was fought on racial lines, which lead to violence and blood shed. With all this trouble still very much at boiling point, the British Troops are on constant patrol around the villages in case it starts again.
