PUP, Back In It After Referendum Strike Out
belize-beaches.com
As we told you earlier, those recent issues like the BTL GST tax assessment and crime seem to have brought the PUP out of a post-referendum shell. By the account of many political pundits and observers, the opposition lost critical ground when it came out on the wrong side of the ICJ vote, and of history. The party told voters to say NO€ and a large majority said YES€. We asked the opposition leader about the political consequence of this: Jules Vasquez "You all supported a position that the voting population did not support. Do you think this will have a consequential effect on the PUP's political fortunes." Hon. John Briceno- PUP Leader "Ironically it had the opposite effect, actually. First of all, as you know, the party still could not have come to a real consensus when it came to the ICJ referendum. There were a lot of leaders in the party that felt strongly that we should vote yes. Secondly, when you think about it, for a party to, in less than three months [...]

Belize Fact
belize-beaches.com
Belize Fact Famed author and world traveler Aldous Huxley wrote in Beyond The Mexique Bay (1934) “If the world had any ends Belize would be one of them. It is not on the way from anywhere, to anywhere else. It is all but uninhabited.” Huxley’s off-the-cuff observation is one of the most famous made by a writer about Belize. More than eighty years ago he was one of the few adventurers daring enough to visit what at that time was one of the most remote corners of the then mighty British Empire. Belize Definition Today Huxley would be amazed that the little country, while still relatively undiscovered, is a nation-state with 395,000 inhabitants spread over a land area twice the size of Jamaica. On a good day four or more cruise ships pull into one of its major harbors bringing some 15,000 visitors from North America and Europe eager to get a taste of the only country in Central America with a British Colonial History and the largest Barrier Reef in the Western H [...]

Ten Things and Eco Tourism
belize-beaches.com
Hello! How’s your week been? Over on Instagram this week, for fun, I shared the story of how I got into environmentalism (spoiler: I don’t come from an environmentally progressive family). Can't Forget Eco Tourism Either Also, thanks so much for your response to my post on why plastic-free isn’t always the best for the environment. It’s an incredibly complex world we live in, isn’t it? This week’s links: 1. The absolute best thing I read this week was this: “I work in the environmental movement – I don’t care if you recycle” by one of my favourite people I follow on Twitter – Mary Annaïse Hegler. When people come to me and confess their green sins, as if I were some sort of eco-nun, I want to tell them they are carrying the guilt of the oil and gas industry’s crimes. The major crime is the use of so called "fossil fuels" (more bs) and nuclear energy when there's free energy all around us. So why are we destroying our planet? Because of greed and avar [...]
