BDF soldiers “face off” armed Guat mob in Caracol
Chiquibul–A week and a day after the brutal murder of Tourism Police special constable Danny Conorquie on Thursday, September 25, at the Caracol ruins inside the Caracol Archaeological Reserve, the protected area was the site of an armed attack against Belize Defence Force (BDF) soldiers and a team of carpenters by an armed mob of about 40 Guatemalans last Friday, October 3, who threatened to burn down the new conservation post the Belizeans are erecting to stem the unrelenting tide of illegal incursions and encroachments by Guatemalans.
Ret’d Colonel George Lovell, Chief Executive Officer in the Ministry of National Security, told Amandala that military reinforcement was called in to support the four BDF soldiers who were onsite. Lovell said that the BDF never retreated, but held their ground in the face of threats from the Guatemalans – who carried rifles, machetes and shotguns – that they would burn the conservation post down.
2 shot; 1 dead
Two men who were making their way towards downtown Belize City shortly after 8:00 this past Friday night were met with a hail of bullets which cost one of them his life, while the other is listed in a stable condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH).
Police reported that they visited the KHMH at about 8:15 p.m. on Friday, October 3, and saw Harrison Smith, 32, of a Police Street address in Belize City, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his body, and Eustace Lewis, 23, of a West Collet Canal address in Belize City, with an apparent gunshot wound to the buttocks.
According to police, Smith and Lewis were riding on separate bicycles on North Front Street when they were cornered by a duo of gunmen, also on separate bicycles, one of whom opened fire in their direction.
Why Belize is losing the war for Chiquibul
The recent tragic death of police officer Danny Conorquie has cast a spotlight on an issue that has not received the necessary attention from either the Belizean public or the government. A silent war is being waged inside the Chiquibul Forest Reserve, one that has been raging for many years. The enemy moves freely within the Chiquibul, operates with impunity and greatly outnumbers the nation’s security forces.
They are consistently encountered by the Belize Defence Force, Belize Police Department, Friends for Conservation and Development, and other Belizeans who visit the Reserve. Many media reports have been made on this enemy and images of the damage they continue to inflict on the Chiquibul are broadcast to the world.
The enemy of the Chiquibul has seized control of the forest and there seems to be nothing the Belize government can do about it. Belize is losing the war for the Chiquibul, and it is apparent that we are now losing the struggle for sovereignty over that part of Belize.
Editorial: Belize’s survival option
This newspaper has described the murder of the Belize tourism police officer, Danny Conorquie, on September 25 at the Caracol Maya site by invading Guatemalan villagers/bandits, as a turning point in the historical development of the Belizean psyche. That murder was followed eight days later by another invasion of Guatemalan villagers/bandits, who threatened Belizean builders and a small Belize Defence Force (BDF) detachment who were about the construction of an observation outpost within Belizean territory near the western border with Guatemala.
Scholars and historians may decide that Belizean reaction on the ground to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) option, an option which was first accepted and proposed by the Belize and Guatemalan governments in late 2009, was the real turning point. No professional poll of the Belizean people has been taken, as far as we are aware, but it appears that the gut feeling of the Belizean masses is opposed to the ICJ option. If this is so, then it means that the Belizean people have become militant in their perspective on the Guatemalan claim to Belize.
From the Publisher
The British, the Americans, and the oligarchy of British Honduras were not happy with the Hon. Philip Goldson when he revealed what he remembered of the Webster Proposals in 1966 in what we Belizeans knew then as the “Thirteen Proposals.”
British Honduras had been granted internal self-government by the British at the beginning of 1964, and we were supposed to be moving right on to independence. The Guatemalan claim to Belize at the time was the “Anglo/Guatemalan Dispute,” and both the disputing parties, Britain and Guatemala, accepted the United States as the mediating party.
Washington appointed a New York City lawyer, Bethuel Webster, to draft proposals to end the dispute so that British Honduras could move on to an “early and secure” independence.
The Hon. Compton Fairweather has said that it was the great Samuel Haynes who formed the British Honduras Freedom Committee in New York City.
The other side of the saga within the sugar industry
In what has now become a disturbing period of uncertainty within one of the country’s most vital economic pillars, the besieged sugar industry, and just eight weeks away from the scheduled commencement of the 2014/2015 sugar crop season between late November and early December 2014, the Belize Sugar Cane Farmers’ Association (BSCFA) and factory owners Belize Sugar Industries (BSI)/American Sugar Refineries (ASR) remain at an impasse in their efforts to reach a definitive, refined commercial agreement due to major differences between them.
Indications are that neither side is even close to reaching a fixed accord anytime soon, especially as it relates to the troublesome dispute over payment for bagasse, which has been a major roadblock in the negotiations among the industry’s stakeholders.
The worrying situation, coupled with plummeting sugar prices in the international market, has prompted BSI’s multinational parent company, ASR, to dispatch a senior executive in the person of Mac McLachlan, ASR’s International Relations Advisor, in an effort to hopefully diffuse the volatile circumstances, but more importantly, to communicate ASR’s sense of urgency in its quest to reach a resolution and ensure the future of the sugar industry.

BELIZEAN FOOTBALL COMPARISONS
Thursday, March 8, 2007
(continued from Amandala of Sun. Oct. 4)
Another question that needs to be asked is: why has professionalism in Belize not led to an increase in gate attendance, which would translate to better salaries for players, following the first few years of semi-pro? Instead, many clubs have folded due to financial difficulties, as fan turn-out during regular season games is abysmal. Teams that don’t make the playoffs have no hope of breaking even, and even champion teams have folded, or declined to return to defend their title, (New Site Erei, Sagitun?) due to financial problems. It is strongly suggested, from this scenario, that if the price is paid (in terms of gate receipts) to achieve excellence on clubs, they would be sustainable and continue to improve. But if top clubs collapse at their peak, due to financial constraints, only to then have to start all over again, this will naturally delay the rise of our football standard to match the higher ranked countries in the region.
Looking ahead to November 4

Guatemalans attack at Valentin
On October 3, 2014, a mob of about 40 Guatemalans threatened to burn down a new conservation post which Belize is building at Valentin Camp, Cayo, inside the Caracol Archaeological Reserve, in response to incessant illegal incursions by Guatemalans who penetrate the area to carry out a range of illegal activities, including logging, hunting, looting of Mayan artefacts, and gold panning.

2 Beach parties and North Ambergris Road
New North Ambergris road pictures are further below from when I drove up there last week and the following pics get straight to the tropical beach party part. At the rate of 600 feet a week, it is coming along nicely now and there are 2 nice long stretches of paved road to drive on.
Many islanders head to the lagoon side at Grand Belizean estates for weekend parties – our version of a cottage country drive. We ran into Miss Shelly, Miss Joy and their friend enjoying a golf cart potluck party under the shady terracotta roof so we parked our cart as close as we could and joined them.
Karen and I walked the beach a bit for some pictures and treasure hunting. Unfortunately I did not find any Maya Artifacts to turn over to Jan Brown for the Marco Gonzalez collection. Still hoping I hit the jackpot with another piece like the full axe head that I found while exploring the back side of the island one day. We spent a good amount of time people watching and chatting – perfect Sunday activities.
Pig Tail at El Fogon Restaurant in San Pedro, Belize
El Fogon is a favorite restaurant in San Pedro preparing classic CLASSIC Mestizo and Creole Belizean dishes in a very classic way.
El Fogon has expanded quite a bit over the last year. And though it was empty when I first arrived at about 11.50am, the place was pretty packed up by 12.15. In Belize, lunch time is lunch time. Mid-day. Noon. It’s as if everyone is programmed with some sort of internal clock that rings at that time.
And just delicious food. The coconut rice is worth the visit alone. Moist and tasty. I went for a favorite of mine. Pig tail.
A “meat” that is very popular in Belize. It is sold from a bucket called a pigtail bucket and though I am hesitant to show you a photo…but…how bad can it be?
Here it is.
United Nations map now includes the State of Palestine
he issue of “statehood” of Palestine was settled in September of 2012 when the United Nations General Assembly voted by an overwhelming 2/3rd majority and U.N. General Assembly Resolution 67/191was passed.
If we refer to the issue of the State of Palestine being on the official map of the United Nations, you will see that the West Bank and Gaza are demarcated with broken lines without mention of the State of Palestine before the date mentioned.2
On, December 21st, 2012, the United Nations Office Of Legal Affairs (UNOLA) circulated an internal memo, not to member-States or media, but to the United Nations Secretariat. In the last line of Article 8 of this memo3stated: which is now public, states:

IMF says economic growth may never return to pre-crisis levels
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has cut its global growth forecasts for 2014 and 2015 and warned that the world economy may never return to the pace of expansion seen before the financial crisis.
In its flagship half-yearly world economic outlook (WEO), the IMF said the failure of countries to recover strongly from the worst recession of the postwar era meant there was a risk of stagnation or persistently weak activity.
The IMF said it expected global growth to be 3.3% in 2014, 0.4 points lower than it was predicting in the April WEO and 0.1 points down on interim forecasts made in July. A pick-up in the rate of expansion to 3.8% is forecast for 2015, down from 3.9% in the April WEO and 4% in July. But the IMF highlighted the risk that its predictions would once again be too optimistic.
“The pace of global recovery has disappointed in recent years”, the IMF said, noting that since 2010 it had been consistently forced to revise down its forecasts. “With weaker-than-expected global growth for the first half of 2014 and increased downside risks, the projected pickup in growth may again fail to materialise or fall short of expectation.”
First lady of Belize visits children at Tockington Manor School
EXCITED children from Tockington Manor School were delighted to welcome some very special guests to their school.
Mrs Kim Simplis-Barrow, the first lady of Belize was joined by Ms Perla Pedomo, the Belizean high commissioner at the school on Wednesday, October 1.
They were in the country to promote Mrs Simplis-Barrow’s charity, the Belize children’s Trust which held its annual fundraising gala at Old Down Manor later in the day.
The Trust is helping to fund the construction of a new ward at the country's main hospital which will provide additional care and services for children in the country.
The children were very keen to learn about the charity but also about Belize itself and had prepared Belizean flags during lessons to welcome their special guests.

Where Is My Money? Shunned Investors Search for Relief – CollectiveFX Goes AWOL
A financial services firm that claimed to offer near-zero pricing before the mainstream has suffered a major hit taking it into the minuses. CollectiveFX, a Belize-based entity offering FX trading on the popular MT4 platform, has recently shut down its systems and is unreachable. The FX broker formerly held authorisation under the Belize financial watchdog, the International Financial Services Commission of Belize. The move signifies the vulnerability the FX industry faces under the current operating environment.
The broker is believed to have started its crumble in May this year, details show that the broker informed clients that it was undergoing ‘changes’ and withdrawals would take up to ten to fifteen days to process. Although clients raised alarm bells, several were unaware of the prospective problems that were to occur.
New World: Niel Petroleum Fails To Secure Funds For Equity Investment
New World Oil and Gas PLC Wednesday said Niel Petroleum SA has not secured the required funding from Al Maram Trading & Contracting Ltd to progress its equity investment in New World. New World shares dropped 48% to 0.222 pence per share Wednesday morning on the news.

Niel Petroleum planned to buy the 2.19 billion shares in New World for USD25 million, while also providing a USD25 million debt facility. Earlier this year, Niel Petroleum made an initial USD4.8 million payment to New World.

Für Taucher, die ein gewisses Risiko nicht scheuen und gern etwas Abenteuerliches erleben möchten ist Belize ein absoluter Geheimtipp. Die Belize Cays sind das zweitgrößte Korallenriff der Welt und liegen vor der Küste dieses flächenmäßig kleinen Staates in Mittelamerika. Aber die Tauchgebiete vor der Halbinsel Yucatán bieten nicht nur eine ungeheure tropische Vielfalt und Farbenpracht, sie sind auch bevölkert von Haien und das macht das Tauchen hier zu einem nicht ganz ungefährlichen Hobby.
Die Landesgrenzen werden im Norden von Mexico und im Westen von Guatemala bestimmt. Die teilweise wirklich wunderschönen Strände am Golf von Honduras sind aber für einen Badeurlaub eher ungeeignet, weil sie teilweise komplett zugewachsen sind. Eindrucksvoll erheben sich die Maya Mountains im Landesinneren auf 1.120 Meter. Belize ist eine Ferienregion für Individualisten, die vom Tourismus bisher weitgehend unberührt geblieben ist.
