Petition Delivered -Nov 21, 2019
Nov 22, 2019 —
The 'Save the Rubber Trees of Mabaruma' petition with signatures and comments from over 1000 persons was delivered yesterday to the Deputy Mayor- Ms. Carolyn Robinson and Deputy Town Clerk- Ms. Maria Basheer. Both officials graciously heard our views and shared their own. They are aware of the depth of feeling that persons have for these trees and desirous of making the best decision for their community. We were grateful for the opportunity to dialogue and remain hopeful that a satisfactory solution will soon be arrived at that will accommodate both those who want to see the trees remain standing as well as those desirous of a new road.
Sincere thanks to all of you who took time to sign and share this petition. It is heartening to see that so many other Guyanese and friends of Guyana care so deeply about safeguarding our environment.
