There have been sporadic acts of civil disobedience by members of the public who want to demonstrate support for the BNTU’s strike action. In Belize, burning tires on Belcan Bridge blocked traffic hours for several hours. Again, burning tires on the southern highway a day after lit up the night skies. Well the act of burning tires seems more epidemic than the Zika virus, because it has spread to the north. Over the weekend, tires were seen burning on the Phillip Goldson highway at two locations. There were burning tires at the mameyal curve and again outside San Pablo Village. The fire department had to respond and douse the fire, then clear the road to allow traffic to pass. The Police are also investigating and looking for accused culprits to charge, like they did in Belize City.
