Welcome to the birth of the first uniquely Belizean political ideology.
It is an extraordinary time to be a political activist in Belize.
We are in the middle of another year of unprecedented crisis and uprising — the demand for a deep change is stronger than ever. Thank you for all you’ve done to bring us to this historical moment of the birth, of an alternative party. In the drive to harness the growing force for transformation; I invite you to join us in a New Hope for our Country: The Belize People’s Front.
The BPF Progressive Movement evolved from a group of civil society/political activist, independent leaders and patriots who reside in Belize. These are people that are dissatisfied with the economic, socio-political conditions affecting our country and its people, and the unequal distribution of our nation’s wealth. There is too much nepotism and cronyism that plague our nation, and the way the two major political parties have been dealing with socio-economic issues affecting our people. Adding hurt to injury, they have badly mishandled the Guatemala/Belize claim negotiations in regard to our sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence. But by now, many of us have figured out that — if we want to save our country — it will take everyone’s best efforts.
We need coordinated action to multiply, amplify and build synergy across grassroots communities. Our call is to up lift and team, with all local fronts of struggle, whom are calling out for a solution that is as big as the crisis barreling down on us.
I hope this site serves to acquaint you with our background, team members, ideals, principles, and platform. Also, to show you, that together we can chart a new path for our people and for our Belize, we all can be a part of a New History in the Making.
If you join hands with the BPF, together we hold the promise of unprecedented collaboration – across movements and across party lines – to harness the transformative energy and power we already possess as brothers and sisters rising up against the moral, psychological, and spiritual assault on our people, faith, ecology, democracy, national security, education, health, economic growth and development.
A number of organizations and individuals have come forward with rallies, marches, protests, civil liberties training, and support to defend our rights in public gatherings; still, none of these have moved our past and present leaders or have changed the course they set. We may not always choose to participate in these mass protest and loud anti-government demonstrations; that is only because we intend to take back our country in time, through action and personal sacrifice, through a peaceful democratic process, with strategy, hard work, and intelligence.
With your help, we can turn the breaking point we face into the tipping point we need, to take back the future we deserve – CLAIM YOUR SPACE IN BELIZE, JOIN THE BELIZE PEOPLE’S FRONT.
