Outcry over Chinese workers racist, anti-national – Teixeira
PPP Executive Gail Teixeira yesterday accused the media of facilitating a racist line of attack over the workers at the Marriott construction site being exclusively non-Guyanese, while saying such projects usually assimilate local workers into their operations.
“For me, you have all fallen prey to the attack on Marriott because, like Amaila, it is a flag ship of the government,” she said at a PPP press conference held at Freedom House, Robb Street yesterday. “First it was corruption… you ain’t find it. Now you got to pick on the workers who are coming in who are foreigners?” she asked rhetorically.
