Over 400 teachers of the Stann Creek district took to the main streets of Dangriga town today in a rally as part of a series of peaceful industrial action by the Belize National Teachers Union, BNTU.
The theme of the rally was “teechaz gat yu bak.”
President of the Stann Creek branch of the BNTU Troy Coleman explained that today’s rally sought to address three main themes, those being the anti corruption message; Social Security and Income Tax reforms.
The rally got started around 9 am at the Princess Royal Park and made its way through the main streets of Dangriga, with the teachers singing and chanting along the way.
The teachers were joined in solidarity by the Southern Workers Union.
The next rally by the BNTU will take place in Punta Gorda town on Friday, January 31.
