The Belize People’s Front is outraged not only by the killing of Safety Officer Danny Conorquie on Belizean soil by alleged Guatemalan illegal encroachers, but is equally outraged that since that brutal execution Guatemalans continue to accost Belizeans in their own land. The Government of Belize which is charged with protecting our sovereignty, integrity and our borders from illegal incursions have failed and are impotent to do anything to safeguard Belizeans from such illegal activity by Guatemalan citizens.
The Belize People’s Front cannot sit idly by and watch along with our helpless government as these incursions by Guatemalans continue unabated and unpunished! Immeasurable damage is being done to our pristine Chiquibul Forest as a result of Guatemalan illegal logging and poaching of our rich and pristine forest! It is endangering our biological diversity as they extract millions upon millions of dollars worth of our precious natural resources every year! Our biological diversity makes for a wonderful Green Industry, Belize can share with the world! Yet the raping of our forest goes unanswered and uncorrected by the Governments of Guatemala and Belize! We will outline our plan of action at a press conference.
We invite all media houses and Embassies to attend a press conference to be held on Wednesday October 8th, 2014 at Aguada Hotel in Santa Elena, Cayo District from 10:30 am until 1:00 pm.
