Guatemala's Claim


With all the talks of Guatemala’s claim on Belize on the rise again. If and when we go to the referendum to argue again with Guatemala, we force them to put up something to lose as well or know their role and shut the hell up. They know they have no claim on Belize, but they keep pushing the issue because they know our leaders are weak and keep playing their games.

I say we have them put up some of their country and if we win we get it. Belize has everything to lose, a country and it’s people; Guatemala has nothing to loose and everything to gain, why would they not keep pushing the issue?

Questions:

  1. Why do the people dealing with this issue simply not ask for them to put something on the table as well? I say the area from the border to Flores for the entire length of Belize.
  2. If our Independence has been accepted by the world, why is Guatemala still fighting for our lands?
  3. Why is it that the many times this issue has been active, it has been mostly under the UDP administration?

I know many will say that Guatemala’s claim is based on Spain’s records but historical facts show that Spain did not even occupy Belizean territory and had no interests in it but considered it part of her Central American territories, such as Mexico and Guatemala.

I for one do not want to have to change my nationality to Guatemalan, I refuse to do it. I am Belizean and want to remain as such.

Ya da FiWeBelize, Ya da FiWeBelize, Ya da FiWeBelize… Belize forever more!
Tell Guatemala leave FiWeBelize alone, we are independent and we must be on wih own.

In the Treaty of Paris (signed in 1763), Spain vaguely accepted that they had no right over Belizean territory but it apparently was not specific enough.

Ever hear about the United Provence of Central America? It  include Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Costa Rica and Nicaragua. British Honduras was separate then as a Colony of the British Empire and today is an Independent Nation Sovereign and Proud.

Wouldn’t it be nice to go to Guatemala and see this on the border billboards?
