Screen_Shot_2016-07-07_at_7.46.35_PMBelizeans planning in traveling to Chetumal in the coming days may want to reschedule their travels as reports from the Mexican media indicate that agricultural producers have planned a road block at the border of Mexico with Belize as a form of protest to their government.


Reports in the Mexican news page, ‘Expediente Quintana Roo’ indicate that the Democratic Farmers Union (Unión Campesina Democrática, UCD) has announced that some five thousand farmers will be setting up road blocks at the two international bridges with Belize. According to the report, the protest is being held to pressure the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA) to release funds to develop various agricultural projects that should have been issued several months ago.


Leaders of the groups organizing the protest have indicated that it is not the first time that they face such delays, adding that they have had enough and have decided to act. Road blocks are scheduled to be set up along the highway connecting Belize to Chetumal.


To report also adds that protests will be carried out in front of each SAGARPA office countrywide while UCD members living along the borders will block the bridges and other entry points along the Belize and US borders.

UCD officials indicate that they do not plan to stand down until a definitive and acceptable agreement has been reached.
