By Aaron Humes: Ahead of this afternoon’s meeting with the Joint Union Negotiating Team and Monday’s planned demonstration in Belmopan by the Belize National Teachers’ Union, the Prime Minister had a warning: the continued education of our children cannot be compromised or halted beyond normal controls. He asked again that the Union clarify exactly what it is complaining about.

Monday’s demonstration by the Belize National Teachers’ Union will be the fifth in less than a month in the nation’s capital and sixth overall in that time span when counting the People’s United Party’s march through the streets of Belize City. Prime Minister Dean Barrow stated in our interview with him today that it is clearly a concern and one that the Government is trying to address in short order. But he was also careful to separate politics from the milieu of social issues that the society also wants addressed.

Expanding on his separation of the politically motivated activities of the past month from the purely civic-minded concerns, Prime Minister Barrow placed Monday’s demonstration in the latter category, though he still had some misgivings.

The Prime Minister continued to extend the olive branch to the Teachers’ Union, promising a further meeting at some time. But he said he wants to know that the Union is serious about a dialogue on these issues and not acting out of political motivation.
