A VOUCHER has surfaced that suggests that Mayor of Georgetown, Pandit Ubraj Narine requested funds from the City’s coffers to attend a protest scheduled to occur in Brooklyn, New York, on the invitation of well-known ‘rabble-rouser’ on Facebook, Rickford Burke.

The protest is organised by an unknown organisation that calls itself the Guyanese Organisations Against Racism (GOAR) and includes what it called an ‘anti-racism & injustice march and rally’ on August 15, 2021, as well as a diaspora conference on August 17, 2021, in Brooklyn, the invitation letter to Narine, signed by Burke and Ervin Washington disclosed.
