By BBN Staff: The Belize Peace Movement (BPM) announced today that the organization intends to hold a peaceful demonstration at Friday’s meeting of the House of Representatives to protest the government of Belize’s refusal to address key issues surrounding the referendum.
The BPM said that the upcoming House meeting will do nothing to address the issues of disenfranchised, born-Belizeans both at home and in the Diaspora; the education campaign which the organization describes as “biased and inadequate,”; the spectre of impending fraud regarding the manipulation of proxies votes and the overall, untenable state of affairs surrounding the Vital Statistics Unit’s inability to adequately meet the needs of Belizeans.
“The PM (Prime Minister) has made clear his intent to continue his brutish approach toward addressing this matter of national importance and in keeping with his normal modus operandi, it appears as though he will, once again, use his position to change the law, once it does not suit his agenda. Such behavior by the Head of Government is unmistakably dictatorial and must be acknowledged as such,” the BPM said.
The organization calls on like-minded Belizeans to express their discontent with the way GOB has handled these pertinent issues by joining the demonstration in Belmopan on Friday.
