A recent survey carried out by the Guyana, South America publication shows that about 90% of about 200 Guyanese surveyed are sorely disappointed in the results of oil exploration in Guyana since it began in 2015, and starting exporting first oil in late 2019.
Most of the respondents expressed dissatisfaction in the failure of the oil revenues to positively impact the lives of the working class. They argue that most of the money are going into the pockets of the “big boys” while the common man is left to suffer – and will be left in the end with a dilapidated environment.
Here are some of the comments we received from a total of about 200 persons who responded to the survey.
Nothing has gotten easier for the ordinary man. Exploitation at its best in Guyana.
Sorry for Guyana. When they finish doing what they have to do there’s gonna be no fish allot of pollution etc…. Secondly … our resources are sold out ! Third … inflation. Last … Only god knows!
