No Show Biz Revolution!

No Show Biz Revolution!

By Abdulmajeed K Nunez

Everyone is looking for a showbiz revolution
When the real revolution is returning to our agricultural orientation
Being able to feed ourselves as a nation
Poverty is not Belize’s ailment
Poverty is not having the confidence
To take opportunities for our own development
Why are we waiting for a government?
Why do the people like to lament?
PUDP is not about development
The real similitude of this government
Is that of tenant paying rent, but we have as a people have become decadent
We’ll allowed this government to renege on our arrangement

Instead of dividing and conquering the country
We should planning strategically
To set ourselves into sectors for productivity
White corn, yellow corn, red kidney beans, and the cattle industry
This could boost our economy
But we will have to join the disjointed country
Improve the infrastructure to transport in commercial quantity
To the deepest water port in the country without losing so much money
Hindering productivity in country is being done intentionally
To enrich the royal families, they are stifling local industries
To get foreign money

Let’s ask the foreign trade minister
Where is the Guatemalans order?
After the meeting with the Guatemalan small farmers at the Radisson
He keeps making excuses for no reason
If we plan strategically, Belize has the capacity
Five hundred young bulls, three hundred pigs, weekly
One million pounds of yellow black and white corn
Ten thousand pounds of RK beans and sugar, this is how the revolution could be born
But our ministry of agriculture is not thinking critically
They are thinking of pickings from a trade show annually
Mind you with no accountability
They are about enrichment of cronies and their families
Tragically keeping the country in poverty
They are not about the country’s food security
Not capitalizing on regional cooperation strategies

They are planning to close the Mexican and Guatemalan border
To enrich the Vega empire
His brother and San Cas being two huge importers
At the sacrifice of the local importers
Remember the imported onions from Canada
They killed the local rice industry
By importing rice from Paraguay
Check these facts if you think I am telling a lie

The Belizean people need to seek out startup capital
Belizean needs to start thinking radical
We think international and regional

And start producing in quantity that’s commercial
We need to push for a national headquarters for famers
We need to organize cane, sugar, and livestock producers
And operate from our headquarters, that’s when we will have true bargaining power
All government is doing is dividing and conquering
And stifling the local importers
Boycotting our local producers and selling out to foreigners
