By Aaron Humes: The United Democratic Party is planning a demonstration at the National Assembly in Belmopan on Tuesday morning, March 15, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Vice-chairman of the party Alberto August wrote principally to Commissioner of Police Chester Williams, but he told us this afternoon that the decision to grant a permit now also lies with the Ministry of Health, due to the ongoing pandemic, and so they are writing Minister Kevin Bernard as well. Police, according to August, say they no longer have sole authority on the issue.

August wrote to Williams, “The demonstration will primarily concentrate on the [rising] cost of fuel, the [rising] cost of living, [rising] rate of crime, official corruption, demand for the immediate restoration with retroactive payment of the 10 [percent] cut from the salaries of public officers, teachers, police personnel and all persons paid from the public purse as well as the immediate unfeeling of their increments and the general incompetence of the current government.”

Quite a lot, but as August assured us, nearly everyone is affected by the rising cost of living and related issues and the protest is not political in nature; therefore all are invited to attend.
