Wednesday, October 1, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: The House of Representatives will be meeting in special session on Thursday at the National Assembly building in Belmopan.
But when parliamentarians from the Lower House arrive for the meeting, they will be greeted by demonstrators.
The Cayo Tour Guides Association has obtained a permit to demonstrate and will take up positions in front of the House of Representatives on Thursday between the hours of 10 am and 12 midday.
According to a press release sent out this evening the purpose of the demonstration is “to highlight a few demands which we believe will help with the safety necessary for tourism to operate at our national parks where we work.”
Organizers of Thursday’s demonstration say they want the public and especially the politicians to know that “these natural and man-made places are truly our offices and Mr. Conorquie paid too high a price in trying to make Caracol safer for everyone who visits the site.”
Special Constable Danny Coorquie, 20, was murdered while on duty at the Caracol Archaeological site in the C ayo district on Thursday, September 15.
When they met to discuss Thursday’s planned demonstration earlier this week, members of the Cayo Tour Guides Association were adamant that poor security offered at the archaeological sites where they operate needs major improvements.
The tour guides believe that since they are the ones who visit these sites every day, their concerns for safety must be taken into consideration before any decisions are made by the policy makers.
An open invitation has been issues to “anyone who wishes to stand with us in solidarity to come join us.”
