COLA President Demands That Maya People Be Respected Too

Geovanni Brackett

Interestingly, Brackett makes the comparison that government has moved with haste to state that it will not appeal the Section Fifty-three judgment, while it has gone to great pains in challenging the Maya people at every turn where it concerns communal land rights.

 

Geovanni Brackett, President, COLA

“The government is very unfair because they have gone ahead very shortly within a two-week span to amend Section Fifty-three when we have allowed the Mayans who have been here from thy kingdom come to run them through the courts fighting, and yet they have been winning.  And no matter how much the Mayans win, their communal rights have not been respected.  So we call on Kim Simplis-Barrow and every other organization like NOPCAN that is trying to incorporate gay rights under the guise of women’s rights and children’s rights.  We call and we call them to that and we say that we do not support that.  There must be a difference between gay rights and what is human rights and we call the government to show their true colors, in fact they have shown their true colors, but treat the Mayans the very same way you are treating Caleb Orozco.”

    COLA does not have to agree with the ruling, but are expected to respect their neighbors. Had slavery or civil rights in the US required a referendum, Giovanni would still be riding in the back of the bus and not allowed to eat at lunch counters.
