A search conducted at the New Amsterdam Prison on Saturday morning unearthed a number of contraband and other prohibited items.According to information received, the raid was conducted by ranks of the Guyana Prison Service (GPS) and Guyana Police Force (GPF), and five grams of marijuana, five cellular phones, and a number of improvised weapons, lighters and phone chargers were discovered.Less than one month ago, it was reported that officers had unearthed some 146 Ziploc bags containing marijuana and more than forty prohibited items from the Prison during an impromptu search of the penal facility.Director of Prisons, Gladwin Samuels, had informed that 146 Ziploc bags of narcotics, amounting to 292 grams; six cell phones, 12 phone chargers, five packets of cigarettes, eight improvised weapons, three SIM cards and seven lighters were discovered.Meanwhile on Friday, a raid conducted at the Lusignan Prison uncovered another set of illegal items, which included syringes with needles, six bottles of pepper sauce, six earphones, a number of razor blades, 17 chargers, 24 lighters, five cellular phones, 10 improvised weapons, eight metal spoons, two pairs of scissors, one plastic knife, two nail clippers, four bottles of oil with suspected cannabis seeds, three mirrors, one wrist watch, one pack of cards, one memory card, and a quantity of wire and Ziploc bags.Additionally, just one month before, a similar routine search had removed a number of knives, scissors and blades from the penitentiary.The Director of Prisons had at the time also indicated that five officers had been relieved of their duties after they were reportedly involved in an incident in which a package containing cannabis had been tossed into the Lusignan Prison Holding Bay area.Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan was greatly displeased with the numerous attempts being made to smuggle illegal items into the Prisons. He is of the belief that it is due to a possible collusion between officers and the prisoners.

A very similar break in took place the morning of November 5, when Apollo Avenue was robbed through the east entrance. Security footage from this morning shows three males wearing dark hooded sweatshirts, jeans, and light coloured gloves got out of the truck, and broke the display cases using hammers. The truck is believed to be an older model two-toned Dodge pickup, with a grey bottom and possibly purple top, and an extended cab. At this point RCMP says there is nothing to link this theft to the one earlier this month, in which no arrests have been made yet. However, as it involves the same M.O. and number of suspects, police are investigating whether there is a connection. – Advertisement -In the previous case, the truck used was stolen, and later found in the field south of Duncan Cran School. So far no trucks matching the description have been reported stolen to RCMP.
The Regional Cultural Centre Letterkenny kicks off its wonderful Autumn 2016 music programme with a Music Network commission of traditional music and dance entitled Edges of Light featuring the former Riverdance principal dancer and choreographer Colin Dunne. The Regional Cultural Centre will also play host to Japanese psychedelic band Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. and Willie Doherty ‘in conversation’ with Matt Packer.The Edges of Light show is inspired by the sights and sounds of an Irish dawn features the dazzling feet of Colin Dunne along with leading Irish traditional musicians Tola Custy, Maeve Gilchrist and David Power. Edge of Light; Colin Dunne, Tola Custy, Maeve Gilchrist & David PowerEdges of Light will be performed at RCC Letterkenny on Wednesday September 21st as part of a national tour.

Edges of LightMusic Network is thrilled to present a new collaboration between the prodigiously talented dancer Colin Dunne, fiddler Tola Custy, harpist Maeve Gilchrist and uilleann piper David Power.This newly-commissioned work, is a sparkling kaleidoscope of melody and rhythm inspired by the natural sounds and shimmering patterns of light that announce Irelands day.Edges of Light draws from a unique and little known Irish idiosyncrasy: the rising of the sun at Dunsink Observatory occurs 25 minutes and 21 seconds later than at Greenwich, meaning that 8pm Dublin Mean Time occurs at 8.25pm GMT!According to Deirdre Moynihan, Programmes Manager at Music Network, this new work is a complete piece, running for about 75 minutes.Some of the tunes selected are quite old and are woven around new compositions, so its a mix of contemporary and traditional music with dance not only as a visual element but part of the sound-scape of the whole piece. Colin DunneBest known for his performances and choreography in Riverdance and Dancing on Dangerous Ground, Colin Dunne has toured with musical groups The Chieftains and De Dannan and performed at such venues as Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall.Three award-winning musicians from Ireland and Scotland complete the ensemble: Clare fiddler Tola Custy, one of the founding members of ground-breaking band Guidewires, acclaimed harpist Maeve Gilchrist and uilleann piper David Power, a former member of Liam Clancys Fairweather Band and regular collaborator with Martin Hayes Masters of Tradition Project.Acid Mothers Teple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O.Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. is a Japanese psychedelic band, the core of which formed in 1995. The band is led by guitarist Kawabata Makoto and early in their career featured many musicians, but by 2004 the line-up had coalesced with only a few core members and frequent guest vocalists. Acid Mother TempleThe band has released albums frequently on a number of international record labels as well as the Acid Mothers Temple family record label, which was established in 1998 to document the activities of the whole collective.This cosmic freak-out collective has recently released with a brand new album “Benziaten”. Acid Mothers Temple are exceptional psych rock music musicans and this AMT show really promises to be something else.Willie Doherty ‘In Conversation’ with Matt PackerTo mark the closing of Willie Doherty’s Loose Ends exhibition the RCC is hosting an interview between the artist and CCA Derry Director Matt Packer. Loose Ends, a historic new body of work by the world-renowned Irish artist comprised of a two-screen video installation and accompanying photographic diptychs.Across two screens, Doherty uses the camera and spoken word to focus on the details and textures of two very different locations – Dublin’s Moore Street and Donegal’s Gola Island, both associated with the 1916 Easter Rising. The sites are examined in detail through the use of a slow, almost trance-like, zoom.Willie DohertyDoherty’s lens absorbs the material evidence of each location today, 100 years after the events of 1916, asking whether a residual response to these events continues to be played out, or how the voices and actions of one generation and the ‘vapours of the past’ resonate in the unconscious of another.This event will take place on Friday September 23 rd , 7pm Admission Free, Booking Recommended, to book email email@example.comWillie Doherty has exhibited in many of the world’s leading museums, including the CAM Gulbenkian, Lisbon; Museum De Pont, Tilburg; IMMA, Dublin; SMK, Copenhagen; Fruitmarket, Edinburgh; TATE, London; Modern Art Oxford; Dallas Museum of Art; Neue Galerie, Kassel; Kunsthalle Bern; Kunstverein München; Kunstverein Hamburg and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville, Paris. He was nominated twice for the Turner Prize, and has participated in major international exhibitions including Documenta, Manifesta, the Carnegie International, and the Venice, São Paulo and Istanbul biennales.Loose Ends is commissioned by Donegal County Council / Regional Cultural Centre in partnership with Nerve Centre, Earagail Arts Festival, Kerlin Gallery and Matt’s Gallery. It is an ART:2016 Project, part of the Arts Council’s programme as part of Ireland 2016.Matt Packer has been Director of the Centre for Contemporary Art Derry-Londonderry since March 2014.

Read the full transcript of Mandela’s speech on the foundation’s website.The copyright of the photograph rests with Lionel Shapiro. To download the images and other related material, visit the foundation’s website at www.nelsonmandela.org 17 April 2014 The Nelson Mandela Foundation has released a rare photograph of Nelson Mandela to mark the 50th anniversary of his famous Rivonia Trial speech, in which he declared that he was prepared to die for a free South Africa. On 20 April 1964 – 50 years ago – Mandela, the lawyer, delivered a long and reasoned explanation of his position. Despite his powerful words, the apartheid court went on to find Mandela and his fellow trialists – Walter Sisulu, Ahmed Kathrada, Govan Mbeki, Denis Goldberg, Raymond Mhlaba, Andrew Mlangeni and Elias Motsoaledi – guilty of sabotage and sentenced them to life imprisonment. The so-called “Speech from the Dock” ended with arguably the most famous and oft-quoted words of all his speeches:“During my lifetime I have dedicated my life to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons will live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal for which I hope to live for and to see realised. But, My Lord, if it needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.” SAinfo reporter Mandela quoted the same words on 11 February 1990, when he spoke from the balcony of Cape Town’s City Hall within hours of his release from prison. The photograph by Lionel Shapiro – a university student at the time – shows Mandela and his comrades in a police van being transported to prison. One can see clenched fists of two of the seven prisoners emerging from the bars of the van. Shapiro contacted the foundation about his “rare photographs” shortly after Mandela’s death in December 2013. “I was terribly excited and terribly sad. I almost cried when I saw them,” the foundation’s archivist, Lucia Raadschelders, said. According to the foundation, a recent innovation has allowed them to hear the playback of the actual “dictabelt” audio recording of Mandela’s speech in court. It shows it took Mandela just under three hours (176 minutes) to deliver his prepared speech, and highlights a few variations from what he prepared. The Nelson Mandela Foundation has a typescript of the speech, which Mandela autographed and gave to a comrade as a gift.
