    Polls are great; action is better. Belizeans – stop this proposal through your representatives. Just tell them you will vote their butts out of office at election time.

    Preventative Detention is horrendous… it is dangerous as well. Don’t get your head filled up with partisan politics…because this law will have dire consequences later on.. OPEN YOUR EYES… you will read about this when the dice starts to roll.

    Remember that you will only get to know the value of freedom when the police arrests you and have to one to appeal to.

    If by any chance you can have a minute with any of your area reps… tell them about your discontent with this law. Remember that you who is reading this could have been one who voted for barrow and his bunch of hooligans. I am sure you never expected to see what barrow is doing to our people. See how he behaves in the House.. so what do you expect of the youth watching him. I believe Barrow will go in Belizean history as the most dangerous pm.
    He loves power and that can be destructive. See what has happened to other countries around the world who had people like barrow getting into power…
