What the Belize is going on?

Evidently Belize is not important enough for the news organizations to report on the rioting going on there. Evidently there is a major communications strike going on. The main fiber lines have been cut by protestors, there is no running water, electricity is soon to follow according to reports from someone in country and tourist have been informed that it is their best interest to leave the country. According to sources this is political in nature so I'll refrain from commenting. People suck.
