What inaccuracies? Hipolito on behalf of cane farmers!

Editor AMANDALA

Editor Sir,

Kindly allow us space in your newspaper to respond to the letters published in your ?Letters to the Editor? written by Mr. J.J. Montalvo, Managing Director of Belize Sugar Industries, and Mr. Vicente Canul, General Manager of the St. Francis Xavier Credit Union, in response to our letter from CRESCAN (Committee Rescastista de los Caneros) titled SUGAR INDUSTRY BRIGHT FOR BSI, BLEAK FOR CANEROS.

Ex-servicemen, enough is enough!

Editor AMANDALA,

Sir,

I am a TCCB (Truly concerned Citizen of Belize). I am really sick and tired of seeing my friends and countrymen and women of the Belize Ex-Services League ? Belize City Branch suffering in silence.

Yes, fellow Belizeans, these gallant men and women who served us were in two world wars, are suffering daily at the hands of an unconstitutional CEO and his two henchmen ? The Supposed to be President of the League and the Treasurer. These three blind mice have brought down Draconian Terror on the Belize City Branch on the advice and direction of a source from England.

Strange and perplexing rapes

Editor AMANDALA

Sir,

The issue of the alleged rape of British schoolgirls has some very strange and perplexing elements to it. Firstly, the amount of money paid to the tour company (Belizean or British?) is astronomical, considering there were supposed to be only 15 girls with 3 escorts. Even if this included airfare, it is a pretty hefty sum of money. This, and the fact that a military type chaperone was on hand might indicate that these were not ordinary, everyday, middle-class schoolgirls, but that at least some of them were quite high up on the social scale.

Open letter to Mr. J. J. Montalvo ? Belize Sugar Industries Limited

From: St. Francis Xavier Credit Union Limited

Editor AMANDALA

Dear Editor,

Grateful if you would allow space in your prestigious and widely circulated newspaper to publish the following article:

Attention Mr. J.J. Montalvo

Belize Sugar Industries Limited

P.O. Box 29, Orange Walk Town

Belize, Central America

Dear Mr. Montalvo,

I read with great interest your article published in the Amandala of Sunday, August 7, 2005 page 31 dated August 2005; captioned article in which you were setting the records straight with regards to Mr. Hipolito Bautista?s inaccuracies.

Cabinet?s ?entrenched absolute power?

Editor, AMANDALA

Sir,

Why is it necessary for the people of Belize to remove the entrenched absolute power of Cabinet over the legislature, that is, a Government headed by a Prime Minister and his Ministers with absolute control over the National Assembly?

Serious talk from Finca Solana

Editor AMANDALA

Dear Sir,

Permit me to communicate with my black brothers and sisters that are destroying themselves, through your prestigious newspaper.

This is a little of my life experience. I too went through a similar situation as you are going through. Dragged out of my little Christian town and culture of Corozal, British Honduras after Hurricane Janet and set into a huge tourist resort city. It was like setting a child in the middle of the jungle without a weapon, and you have to find a way how to survive.

The difficulty of research in the districts

Editor AMANDALA

Dear Sir,

In the article titled: ?Systematizing Research in Education?, published on Sunday, July 24, 2005, in Amandala, written by Dr. Isabel Tun, Ph.D., she said in one of her paragraphs the following: ?Research as a behaviour and discipline demands time, money (some students acquired miniature recorders, and also described having to invest in travel to various points in the country to get their data), and validation. In other words, students will work toward excellence either because of the grade or the pride of doing above average work, or for both reasons. Others, on the other hand, cannot find the time or are not willing to sacrifice the cost of carrying out research that might very well mean lost entertainment time and travel cost to meet with team members or carry out data collection and interviews.?

A rape victim?s nightmare

Dear Editor,

It took me seven days to write this. I guess I am famous with the number seven because it has been exactly seven years since I have been raped. Seven years I have seen this person?s mean angry eyes staring into mine. I still feel his hands around my neck. I still smell him. I still remember what he wore, the music in the background. But out of all that, one thing is like a never healing sore, the words of my mother saying, ?I am not going to press charges, because you asked for it?.
