The politics of most Caribbean Left parties were influenced by the experience of the Grenada Revolution and its ultimate demise. This chapter examines the Working People’s Alliance (WPA) of Guyana, one of the parties with close ties to the New Jewel Movement (NJM), the party that led the revolution. The chapter looks at the relationship between the NJM and WPA before and during the revolution, including the impact of the revolution on the WPA’s fight against the Forbes Burnham-led People’s National Congress (PNC) dictatorship in Guyana. Finally, it draws a connection between the demise of the revolution in October, 1983, and the shift in the WPA’s tactics and strategy in the period following the demise.
