GAWU extends Holi greetings

The Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) extends Holi greetings to all Hindus and to the numerous friends who join them in this national celebration.

In a release, the Union called on Hindus to reflect upon the solid symbolism of the festival- the hope of the Season of productive fulfillment from the Earth, the beauty of Nature and its colours and of a clean environment for all-round spiritual and practical development”.

As the country faces challenges of climate change, natural geographic attacks on our ability to plant and feed ourselves, the Union(which represents the producers of sugar, rice, seafoods and other products) called upon Hindus to show others how to protect and preserve Guyana’s natural resources.  The union urged all to join with the authorities in battling the more destructive forces of Nature, such as the heavy rains, floods and their negative consequences.
