Belize People’s Front says Belizeans Need to Put Pressure on Government

Nefretery Nancy Marin

Nefretery Nancy Marin is the leader of the recently formed Belize People’s Front. Marin was also present during Thursday’s trip to the Barrio el Juda along Belize’s side of the border with Guatemala. Marin says that the illegal Guatemalan encroachment on Espat’s land is not a problem he can address on his own. She says that the Government must act quickly before the situation worsens.

“It is rightly said that Mr. Espat cannot do this alone but that is why we are here. Our government and the O.A.S. have failed us. The O.A.S.’s mandate is to keep peace, to put in measures that this does not happen but also I call on our security forces. They should be trekking our territory. We have a dispute on our territory. Not just in this small area but on our country so we should be trekking our borderline. I don’t know what they are doing. On our side we say firmly with Mr. Espat and with any other Belizean that will be suffering this. We have other Belizeans that own land on this side of the border. We don’t know yet if they are suffering the same. We have to look into that and figure out. For sure he cannot stand alone. So I make to every Belizean and say that this is not just Mr. Espat being violated; Belizeans are being violated and we should take very personally and we should bring that to the attention of the government. Belizeans need to put pressure on the government and on the O.A.S., send letters, send notes, write to the and tell them something because if we sit, like Mr. Espat said, like sitting ducks today is Mr. Espat. Tomorrow I might be any of us that live by the borderline.”
