The Garifuna Nation Says GOB is Abusing their Communal Land

The Garifuna Nation is calling out GOB for what they say is an abuse of Garifuna land. In a release sent out on Thursday, the organization says that land belonging to the Garinagu is being sold off by the GOB. They say that giving titles for Indigenous lands goes against the principles established in the Maya land rights case which affirmed the rights of indigenous and tribal peoples of Belize and reaffirmed by the CCJ in the consent decree. The organization is now demanding that GOB cease and desist from using ALL Garifuna Territories in their land registry system, until such time that the borders of all Garifuna lands are properly demarcated. According to Cynthia Ellis, one of the group’s representatives, the matter is being taken to court.
