By Aaron Humes: Activist Yaya Marin Coleman has released a “privileged and confidential” letter from the Police Department, refusing a permit for a protest supporting Black Lives Matter near the United States Embassy in Belmopan next Monday.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Bart Jones, writing for Commissioner Chester Williams, cites regulation 16 of the current statutory instrument which prohibits gatherings of larger than 40 persons.
Police have twice broken up meetings organized by Nigel Petillo in the Cotton Tree community over land issues in the last month.
Undeterred, Marin Coleman, host of KREM Radio Sunday Review, plans an “online protest” starting at 8 a.m. Thursday June 11, 2020 on social media ending at 4:46 p.m. The 3 options to join that Viral Protest will be posted on Krem Sunday Review Facebook Timeline later today.
The Black Lives Matter movement was started in the wake of the deaths of Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin and has called for various reforms.
Protests have been ongoing in the U.S. since the May 25 death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and have spread around the world, joined occasionally by violence and looting.
