NTUCB stands in solidarity with National Student Union

Posted: Tuesday, February 25, 2020. 9:10 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: The National Trade Union Congress of Belize (NTUCB) issued a statement today affirming its support for the National Student Union of Belize (NSUB) following reports of alleged student victimization stemming from the student walkout staged last week.

The congress said that it received credible reports that some students are being targeted by the administration of the University of Belize (UB) for attending the NTUCB’s peaceful national demonstration against corruption last Wednesday. The NTUCB said that it doesn’t wish
to bring disrepute to the national university but is in disbelief that UB would act contrary to its own principles and attempt to stifle freedom of thought and expression.

“The NTUCB publicly applauds the efforts of these students who not only took it upon themselves to show solidarity with our movement but who clearly are in tune with the current situation which threatens their future! We will be monitoring the situation and plan to take any necessary action if the management of the University seeks to endorse these types of actions against its students,” the organization added.

Speaking on the protest, the NTUCB stressed that it was against corruption and did not align itself with any political party or agenda. The congress said that the University is not a prison and feels that students are free to leave provided they can arrange to make up for the academic loss incurred by their absence. The organization issued a call to the authorities at UB to ensure that its staff understands the premise of the NTUCB’s concern.
