PM GONSALVES STRIPPED OF DEMOCRACY PRIZE BY CGID

Editors Note: According to the Online Streaming and Previous Press Release the Award to PM Gonsalves was made on February 4th 2006 in New York and not 2005 as the Press Release mentioned.

PRESS RELEASE: In a public Town Hall meeting Monday night, with an online viewership of 20,000, and over 100 members and supporters in attendance, the Board of Directors and general membership of the New York based Caribbean Guyana Institute for Democracy (CGID) voted unanimously to revoke and strip the Democracy Prize from Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Gonsalves was awarded the Prize in 2005. The motion was moved by Mr. Jason Benjamin and seconded by Dr. Michelle Luard. The motion accused Gonsalves of violating the standards of democracy as well as requirements of the Prize to which he was obligated.

The Board mandated CGID President, Rickford Burke, to communicate its decision to Prime Minister Gonsalves and to request that the Prize be returned by the end of August. The announcement of the passage of the motion was met a sustained, thunderous applause.
