Citizen’s Enshrined Rights to Protest

first_imgDear Editor,I wish to make it pellucid to the nation, to our Government of the day, and to the Opposition that I have no political priority in my life. If I am speaking for the Government, then it is because I am a fair commentator, and if I am speaking on behalf of the Opposition of the Country, then I am also speaking as a fair commentator.I read with disappointment, a recent article, “Democratic right to protest denied in Region 1 as Police bar citizens from Granger’s ‘Cabinet’ campaigning,” published in <<>>, Saturday, September 21, 2019 edition. I cannot help but proclaim my utter disagreement with the Government of the day and the Guyana Police force, for which I always have maximum respect, but it is wrong for them to deny people the right to protest.The Government cannot interfere with the rights of its citizens to picket just because it disagrees with the picketers’ views. They cannot make the conclusive decision that these views might be of a nuisance to them. Instead, they must take reasonable steps to enable citizens to protest and to protect participants in peaceful demonstrations from disruption by others. In simpler terminology, they have the right to prevent violence, they have the right to arrest people if they break the law, but they have no right to prevent these kinds of expression that is enshrined in the vagaries of democracy.Government of Guyana, how shameful it is that even at this time, after being so long in power, that you are unable to preserve the rights of the people of this magnificent country? How dare our law enforcement officers violate this right through means intended to thwart free public expression? Political leaders, President of the State, I earnestly remind you that you have got to remember that people have a right to peaceful protest; otherwise it means that democracy is being hijacked by the powers.It is as if the Government and the Guyana Police Force believe that they have a veto power over all speech. At the end of the day, dear Government, we are citizens! Not subjects! We are employers of Government, Opposition and political institutions, and we the people can hire and fire at will. (And for stating this, a group I call the Shadow Cabinet of the current Government tried to destroy me over the last few years and my business, but respectfully, I will never relent. Success is not dependent on the power of a few individuals but on the blessings of God Almighty and the power of birth.)I can reflect very well in the days of the PPP/C being in power, His Excellency David Arthur Granger himself was leading picketing exercises against the Minister of Home Affairs, and several other places as well. No one ever tried to stop them from exercising their democratic right to picket. And I stood there admiring democracy in action. I politely raised my hand to them.If I may remind you, the right to protest is vital for a democracy. And when this democratic right of ours is suppressed, it becomes disadvantageous, thus creating unfavourable situations. The intention is not to create chaos, but to express the plight of the people to the state, and that the issues of the citizens of this great country are heard by the Government.Sincerely,Hajji Dr Roshan Khanlast_img read more

Liberia’s Oral Health Situation Dismal

first_imgDr. Taylor Neal, who is one of two Liberian practicing Dentists, has disclosed that the oral health situation in the country is dismal and urgent action is needed on the part of the Ministry of Health and other health stakeholders to step up dental services. Dr. Neal said there are only six dentists in the country to a population of nearly four million and that only two Liberians are among the six practicing dentists.Dr. Neal, who is in private practice, and Dr. Ayele Ajavon-Cox, the other dentist, have now reached retirement but cannot leave as there are no other Liberian dentists in the country to cater to people with dental problems. He spoke at a program organized by Smile for Liberia, a local NGO, yesterday, on World Oral Health Day (WOHD), which is also celebrated worldwide. The day was celebrated under the theme, “Healthy mouth, and health body.”Touching on the situation within the Dentistry Department at the John F. Kennedy Hospital, he said most of the equipment that are being used there are obsolete, adding: “we need to get up to date instruments and infrastructure.”He emphasized the need for more and better training for young Liberians who have an interest in the profession.Dr. Neal said the oral cavity or mouth is a very important part of the human body. “Digestion begins in this cavity. While good things begin in this cavity, bad things also start there. So it is very important to have a healthy mouth,” he stated.The Dentist said one important component in the oral cavity is the set of teeth, which according to him helps us to pronounce well and keep our mouth in shape.Also speaking, Dr. Ajavon-Cox, who has been a practicing dentist for more than 40 years now, said the oral health sector needs the full support of the government. Dr. Ajavon-Cox, who is the head of Smile for Liberia, disclosed that the Methodists have trained some mid-level young Liberians in dentistry, but they are now just sitting and doing nothing much. “This makes me feel terrible,” she added. She reemphasized that she and Dr. Neal have now reached retirement but can’t leave because there is no one to take their places. Speaking on the importance of the day, she urged Liberians not to wait until their teeth or mouth start to hurt.Dr. Ajavon-Cox’s Smile for Liberia, had invited several primary schools, including the Candlelight Christian Academy, Duport Road, Paynesville and Christian A. Richards, Elementary School, Clay-Ashland, Montserrado. Each of the two schools brought 20 kids and all of the 40 children were screened. Some adults, too, benefited from the free screening. Importance of the WOHDOver 90 percent of the world’s population will suffer from oral diseases in their lifetime. In addition, World Oral Health Day offers the dental and oral health community a platform to take action and help reduce the overall disease burden.WOHD 2016 aims to get everyone to recognize the impact their oral health has on overall physical health and wellbeing to help inspire this change, the overall campaign platform.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
