Organisers planning for bigger McKenley-Wint Classic

first_img COMPETITIONS The meet will see competitions in the 100, 110, 400 and 1500, 100, and 400 metres, the long jump, high jump, discus, and shot put in the Boys and Girls’ Championships class categories. Four competitors per school is the maximum allowed entry size for track events, with three being the maximum for field events. In addition, schools are being asked to bring their own throwing implements, which will be weighed to ensure they meet the requirement specifications. Also on the agenda for the meet are Olympic Development 400- and 800-metre races for both men and women. The meet is scheduled to start at 8.30 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. – H.L. After a successful first staging of the McKenley-Wint Classic last year, organisers are planning for growth when the meet is contested for the second time at Calabar High School on January 21. Accordingly, plans are in place to accommodate more patrons this time around. Central to these plans is the erection of a temporary stand beside the track. This was revealed by organising committee member Lincoln Eatmon at the launch of the meet at the offices of the Jamaica Baptist Union yesterday. Speaking just after the launch, Eatmon indicated that the temporary stand would be on the back straight side of the track and would add seating to that provided last year on the finish straight side. “We’re going to have stands on both sides of the track so that spectators will be able to sit,” he said. Last year, reported Eatmon, the meet saw more than 2,000 patrons. “This year, we expect much larger than that,” he projected.last_img read more

SASOD, Police hierarchy working to create culture change in GPF

first_img…in order to reduce ranks’ homophobia, discriminatory treatment of LGBT persons By Michael YoungeThe Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination (SASOD) is working closely with the hierarchy of the Guyana Police Force (GPF) to tackle the continuing problems of how Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people are treated whenever they seek law enforcement and criminal justice services.This is according to SASOD’s Homophobia Education Coordinator Anil Persaud, who explained that over the years the organisation would have been embarking on a number of measures aimed at re-training and training new Policemen and women on how to respond professionally to complaints from LGBT especially when their human rights are violated or when they are accessing general services.“I can tell you that LGBT people have the same rights and entitlements as any other group of persons residing here. They are not asking for any special treatment as their rights are basic human rights. Therefore, they must be treated professionally and respectfully,” Persaud argued.He admitted that from time to time, there are complaints from LGBT people about the high levels of discrimination they face from Policemen and women when there is an altercation or a need to seek services, but Persaud maintained that there has been massive improvements in the conduct of some law enforcement personnel as a result of the direct intervention of SASOD, its partners and other LGBT lobby groups.“We are not there yet, but we are getting there…”, he said as he explained that SASOD continues to enjoy a close relationship with the Police Force and this relationship can only improve over the next few years.So close is that relationship that Persaud disclosed that SASOD volunteers act as an emissaries or support units for LGBT persons who are fearful of venturing to Police Stations alone to file complaints.The Homophobia Education Coordinator denied that there was a marked increase in the number of persons complaining about the quality and type of treatment meted out to them by the Policemen especially following the staging of the recent Gay Pride Parade through the streets of Georgetown.In fact, he denied that there was a rise in homophobia and intolerance for the way of life of LGBT people following the Pride Parade. He defended the Policemen saying that anyone who felt differently was free to access the services at SASOD and have their cases documented.For years, LGBT people have complained about the fact that whenever they seek the services of certain Police Stations within A, C and D Divisions, they are mocked, discriminated against or turned away.One account given by an LGBT person in the media as of recent stated that the Policemen were targeting a group of ‘differently-gendered’ men in order to arrest them to prove a point.“The Policeman asked me if I am man or woman…and I said I am a gay man. My friend said that he was a woman and the whole patrol started to laugh and insult him,” the LGBT person recounted.last_img read more
