The ARAB SPRING and now the BELIZE SPRING.
Some high points from Audrey Maturas lengthy article in this week´s Amandala.
She talks about the politicians paying people to attend rallies and other political charged events. I presumed one reference was the OBVIOUS UDP advertisements on TV which are running, which shows long lines, of UDP sycophants, or supporters going before the microphone at the meetings going on with the 9 Amendment issue. I was amused this past week, when somebody else started running an opposite ad, taking the other view, SAY NO to the amendment. Thought that was good Belize Soap Opera.
She equates this paying people by politicians to support their agendas, as MODERN DAY SLAVERY. Actually, she is probably right.
She says, the political parties are manipulating the populace, particularly the partisan support for the wrong reasons. If we cannot even debate NATIONAL ISSUES that should transcend political parties, how can we build a nation? The worst enemies of the country and nation building appear to be the two major political parties, in it for their own self enrichment. The CORRUPTION in both parties is about inside tracks, for LOANS, LAND, SCHOLARSHIPS, GRANTS, JOBS, PERMITS, LICENSES, CONTRACTS, APPOINTMENTS AND THE LIST GOES ON. Look at the Belize Tourist Board, for an example. Wasted money.
Audrey Shepherd article in the Amandala newspaper review. Sunday September 4th., 2011
She says the laws are oppressive in Belize. Typical colonial imperialism. Except nowadays they are done by our own party people. The laws promote PARTY SUPREMACY over the best interests of the constituents and the interests of the nation. The laws are all about controlling the ability to PLUNDER THE TAX REVENUES by politicians.
Audrey sure has a good vocabulary and a way with words, she is also a NATIONAL TREASURE in this volatile time in our history. I don´t have to agree with her on every issue, but by God I sure want her to keep analyzing and talking. Reserving the right to discard what I don´t agree with. She claims the GUARDIAN ( UDP party rag ) is persecuting her and a several others who are speaking out.
THE DAY AUDREY MATURA SHEPHERD IS SILENCED, THAT WILL BE THE DAY THE VIOLENT REVOLUTION OFFICIALLY STARTS. The Belize Spring I suppose you would call it? ( grin )
