The concern on how the shooting death of a tourism officer in the Caracol Archaeological site will eventually end; continues to linger across the country, at the same time it has also caused tensions to grow at the Belize/Guatemala Border. Many groups have voiced their stand on the matter and now Belize’s teachers are asking the government to act swiftly and accordingly. The Belize Teachers’ Union is asking its membership to wear a green t-shirt every Friday in October as a form of protest to the border situation and in efforts of sending a message to Government.

“We are sending a message to the Government of Belize, to our ministers that they need to take action with what is happening with this confrontation with Guatemala. First we had the death of the constable from there we were not satisfied as to how things were handled by the Government and then things escalated because we had another incident on Friday. So we had a meeting in Belize City on Friday and the Council of Management of the BNTU decided that as educators of this country we need to send a message to Government that we are serious and we are requesting from them that they need to intervene in the situation before it escalates even more and that is what we don’t want. I believe that the Government has the power to negotiate and to get that international help in order to resolve this problem and it is not being done and it is a very sensitive situation and we want to send a message and we will do so by asking our teachers and membership to wear a green short as a form of protest.”


Munoz says they will plan something towards the end of the month and hope that their plea be heard by the country’s leaders.
