    Yesterday, Tuesday, 28th of June, 2022, riot and looting erupted across Guyana by a handful of criminals who claim they were demanding justice for Quindon Bacchus – a 23-year-old man who was allegedly shot by an undercover cop during a sting operation to recover illegal firearms. However, Quindon Bacchus must be turning in his grave if only knew how his name and cause is being vandalized.

    The rioters took to the streets, blocked roads, attacked and injured persons, robbed, broke down property, burned vehicles, and committed a wide range of atrocities on innocent people of Guyana, especially living along the East Coast of Demerara. Photos showed rioters making off with large quantities of stolen items from the areas they had plundered.

    These riots, looting, and crime against the Guyanese people targeted Indo-Guyanese communities, and were perpetrated by Afro-Guyanese. However, the policeman who allegedly shot Quindon Bacchus to death is himself an Afro-Guyanese. The people of the East Coast of Demerara had nothing to do with Quindon’s death. Some investigations even suggest that Quindon Bacchus and his killer had a personal problem involving a triangular love affair.

    Those politicians and public figures who refer to the riots as a “protest” for “justice” are themselves cheering on the riots. These riots are meant to destabilize Guyana, create ethnic tensions, and promote racial hate. Guyanese have a come a far way since the 1964 ethnic clashes to emerge as a unified and harmonious people, but we still have a far way to go. The attack on innocent, law abiding citizens by a bunch of hooligans yesterday, 28th of June, 2022, is another sober reminder that the monster of 1964 is not dead, but only sleeping, and Guyanese of a particular ethnicity must always stay on their guard, and develop means to defend themselves.
