Slavery in British Honduras 1794-1838

Source: U.S. Library of Congress Cutting logwood was a simple, small-scale operation, but the settlers imported slaves to help with the work. Slavery in the settlement was associated with the extraction of timber, first logwood and then mahogany, as treaties forbade the production of plantation crops. This difference in economic function gave rise to variations in the organization, conditions, and treatment of slaves. The earliest reference to African slaves in the British settlement appeared in a 1724 Spanish missionary’s account, which stated that the British recently had been importing them from Jamaica and Bermuda. A century later, the total slave […]

By Ezili Dantò – Global Research, April 07, 2015 Foreign Aid Is Meant To Cripple People “Anyone who takes aid is crippled. Aid is meant to cripple people… Governments in Africa and elsewhere are not allowed to write their own programs.

We need to articulate on the projects we write. We need to have a comprehensive strategy, plans on how to implement those programs…Unless we do that on our own, […]


Belizean Company aiming for Tanzania Gold

First off let me say that with the recent “get rich quick” schemes that have been popping up around Belize, this one smells like one of them from the start. I may be wrong but.

The New Bill Gates Vaccine is Not as Safe as They Say

Yesterday Reuters put out an article that praises MenAfrivac which is a vaccine that fights meningitis in places such as Africa where the disease is more common due to various reasons such as lack of medical treatment.

The Secret History of the American Empire

Author John Perkins spoke at Marlboro College on 4/23/08. Drawing on experiences described in his two New York Times bestsellers, Perkins describes the post-WWII era as one that created history’s first truly global empire — mostly through economics, rather than the military. Now we find ourselves catapulted toward a future that appears catastrophic to many people; however, in Perkins’s view it offers great opportunities. Identifying corporations as “the most influential institutions on the planet,” he challenges us to transform ourselves and the companies that so deeply impact our lives. He presents a plan for creating a world “that will make […]

Poverty – The International Violation of Human Rights 4

These days there are much talks of rights violation from the criminal to LGBT, however there is one issue that is not seeing as much motion or effort for something that we consider the most basic of human rights violation; Poverty. Belizeans must not take freedom and human rights for granted.
