Cañeros march in front of Prime Minister’s house as interim agreement delayed

Posted: Thursday, December 30, 2021. 8:42 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Having failed to secure an interim agreement with Belize Sugar Industries Limited/American Sugar Refining (BSI/ASR), members of the Belize Sugar Cane Farmers Association (BSCFA) marched in front of Prime Minister John Briceño’s Orange Walk Town home this evening.

They made clear their disappointment with the man who they said they voted for to protect them against BSI/ASR, shouting for him to help them and not give in to the millers, according to reports on the ground.

The protest was allowed officially by Commissioner of Police Chester Williams and was escorted by part of the town’s police detachment. It was officially limited to 50 persons and not to be stationary in front of the residence on Dunn Street.

According to Orange Walk North area representative Ramon Cervantes, Jr., the lawyers for both sides met today but those for BSI/ASR apparently asked for more time, up to Monday, in order to secure the agreement, meaning the impasse continues into the New Year.

We will have BSI/ASR’s side of the story in a forthcoming story.
