    This country’s national Gov is rotten from top to bottom, things only function even marginally at the local “village” level.
    Good luck, they really need to bring the British back, they are not old or intelligent enough to play at governing.

    I am Black like night and I go to Melchor and Las Flores constantly, I have no problems with anyone doing collaborated design works in the Peten area, and the honest working merchants need our business.—Now- the chateros,contrabandistas, and the loggers know that it is illegal to do what they’re doing across our borders, and as you will always remember (A THIEF IS A KILLER). It is up to our government to provide security to our borders and it’s citizens, The guatemalan government have to worry about there 20million population, and its statistically high central american crime rate. they have abandon the indigenous Peteneros, and deprive them of farmlands, so these people in their ignorance of deprivation to entrepreneurship education and farmland, They look towards the illegal Belizean palm which sells high on the European market, and offer them stability to maintain their families, so understand Belizeans SECURE OUR BACKYARDS, And let the Guatemalan Government work out how it will recognize our sovereignty by having an outlet to the Atlantic.

    It would be good to see a strong respond to this thing these chapines come in and do how they please. Where is Mr. Elrignton? He is in his fancy car. Where is OAS? In Guatemala City. Fire burn chapines stealing murder our people.

  6. Jacqueline says:

    This matter is becoming more and more serious. and please be guided we need more than a handful of BDF to serve as protection.

  7. anonymous says:

    What the hell is the government waiting for? I for say cant wait see anyones else paying with their lives fighting for what is ours and them doing nothing. While they eat and sleep confy like nothing, those men are dy and night in danger. Hope to see them do something soon.

  8. John schofield says:

    Here’s one solution
    Why don’t Belizeans, with their English connections, saturate the European market with legal selling of Palm, make it not worth the effort to come across the border, long term solution, grow plant sustainable hardwood.
