    Why should Belize care when after all only the elite benefit form its resources. So many Belizeans without a piece of land and it is not because we are scarce of land.or because the PUP or UDP haven’t been in power, Politicians create the conflicts and civilians end up hating and killing one another. I believe that the right to complain is far greater than the one to vote after all no matter what political party is on power i still have to pay taxes..

      True elephant, this is why I says that we need to start looking past party colors and start to come together as brothers and sisters and fight for each other because nobody else will do it for us.

    I´m not in Belize presently, but I´m a proud 100% Belizean. I may not know the details of what is going on with the country,but I totally agree with this article. It is a fact that Belize is giving attention to a country that doesn´t deserve it. They don´t have a firm base where to stand on their claim.

    I am a Guatemalan educated young woman. I am not saying I disagree with the whole article but what I will say is that for you to claim that we are racists is a claim that you should not be making. Yes we did have civil war and a horrible man was in power. Before making such claims do some research on our country and on the people who committed the crimes before you say such things. Educate yourself before saying such ignorant things. “In addition they are racists. They have killed thousands upon thousands of their indigenous people. General Efrain Rios Montt ex-president of Guatemala was taken to court because he was one of the most vicious genocide perpetrators in Guatemala.” Thank you.

      Thanks for your comment Felicite, but I have personally experienced the racist comments and actions by Guatemalans not only to indigenous Guatemalans but to “black” people as well. I would like to point you to the Facebook group Belice es de Guatemala as an example (https://www.facebook.com/Belice-es-de-Guatemala-506863256055574) where one Guatemalan said:

      “Callate negro infeliz, regresa a africa a comer platanos”

      With all due respect, I think it is you that should study the history of your country and the racist things that happen there…
