Sase Singh-Statement on assassination of Courtney Crum-Ewing

STATEMENT ON THE POLITICAL ASSASSINATION OF MY COMRADE AND SCHOOL MATE.
COURTNEY NICKOSI CRUM-EWING dedicated part of his life to social justice and betterment for all our people. For his efforts we all must be grateful for the work from this Guyanese patriot. Unfortunately he had to die at the hands of political assassins in his quest for greater fairness in our society. Shame on the killers and their intellectual sponsors.

But there are two ways we can react to this cowardly act – more violence or non-violence. Violence will only serve the PPP since they are itching to call a State of Emergency as a result of their inability at winning the upcoming 2015 polls. However, the approach that will have a more impactful outcome for the majority of the people would be a re-dedication of our efforts to ensure that the majority of our people vote solidly against the oppressive forces in Freedom House. I want to strongly encourage maturity and OM SHANTI!

This means young people all across Guyana, especially in the urban areas, who had no time for the 2011 elections (even though they were eligible to vote), have to be motivated to become fully engaged in the electoral process in 2015. Politicians have to make a more determined effort at understanding the ambitions of the youths. All the hours spent in political strategy meetings and manifestos construction will come to naught unless we make the effort to properly understand the needs of the young people. They do not want political division, but more bread and jobs. They do not want violence and more lawlessness but a fair society where anyone can get ahead irrespective of who are their parents.
I first met Courtney, many moons ago at Queens College and have always found him to be a “straight up fellow” and we have been talking on and off over the years on various issues. When on December 21st, 2014 he threaten to abandon his "ANIL MUST GO" campaign, I did converse with him on how effective his struggle was since he was making a greater impact on the issue even more than the organized opposition.
In February 2015, he advised me that he was commencing a “bull horn crusade” until May 2015 to which I responded - "excellent idea". What is vitally needed is not one, but hundreds of soldiers to replace Courtney on the bull-horn crusade by going to every village across Guyana with their bull horns to tell the people at their front doors why the PPP and ANIL MUST GO!
All those who are against this unrighteous sort of politics emanating from Freedom House must rededicate themselves to taming these political savages in Freedom House.
So I ask all of Guyana to offer a prayer for the soul of my Comrade and school mate Courtney. May his soul rest in peace.
Because of his death, better must come to Guyana.
Regards
