Don’t trust the OAS

Dear Editor,
In November 2019, Evo Morales, the recently elected president of Bolivia, fled to Mexico because of the Bolivian police and military.

The justification used was a November 10, 2019 preliminary report by the Organization of American States (OAS) and the final report one month after, which alleged widespread fraud in the election.

The United States and the current rulers of Bolivia used the report to justify the coup…

On Sunday, June 7, 2020, The New York TImes had an article that stated that the election was free and fair and it was the OAS report that was flawed.

For Belize, this occurrence is instructive. The OAS is the organization that Belize uses to facilitate our resolution of the Belize-Guatemala dispute. The confidence-building measures are under the auspices of the OAS.

Our journey to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) was under the guidance of the OAS. The OAS is sometimes used as an instrument of the United States. The fact is that it was used by the United States to recognize Juan Guaido as president of Venezuela.

Mr. Guaido was never elected president by the Venezuelan people. Belize must not trust the OAS, but rather should trust the justice of Belize’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

My advice to Belize’s leaders is, do not be like Toussaint Louverture and trust your colonizers, but be like Fidel Castro, who never trusted the Soviet Union or the United States. He trusted the justice of Cuba’s revolution.

Trust in Belize’s revolution for prosperity without compromise.

Yours Truly,
Brian Ellis Plummer
