In the wee hours of Thursday, the Guyana Police Force demolished the People’s National Congress Reform’s office in Lethem, Region Nine. The party has called it an act of state terrorism and plans to write to the international community to inform them of the demolition.
The People’s National Congress Reform is one of Guyana’s oldest political parties and has been a critical player in the country’s political landscape for decades. The party has been critical of the current government’s policies and accused them of stifling dissent and opposition.
The party’s office in Lethem was a hub for its regional operations and was an important center for political organizing and activism. As a result, the demolition of the office has been met with outrage and condemnation from the party’s leadership and supporters.
The party has accused the government of silencing the opposition and using the police force to carry out its agenda. The government has not yet commented on demolishing the party’s office, but it will likely be a source of tension between the government and the opposition.
The People’s National Congress Reform has said that it will not be deterred by the demolition of its office and will continue to fight for the rights of the Guyanese people. The party has also called on its supporters to remain calm and peaceful in the face of this provocation.
The demolition of the party’s office in Lethem is a worrying development in Guyana’s political landscape and raises questions about the government’s commitment to democracy and human rights. Moreover, the party’s decision to inform the international community of the incident underscores the seriousness of the situation.
