A Vigil in Belmopan to Highlight the Beheading of Pastor Lucas

A candlelight vigil is underway in Belmopan and was organized by a group of religious leaders and concerned citizens, following the decapitation of Pastor Llewellyn Lucas a week ago.  Tonight’s initiative is part of a growing movement that was born on social media with a blog posted by Pastor Louis Wade.  The vigil is the first of a two-part call to action by the religious community.  On Tuesday morning, a peaceful protest will be held in Belmopan where participants will make their way to several government buildings to express their dissatisfaction with the manner in which the heads of offices, including government ministers have been dealing with crime and corruption.  The movement is called I Want My Country Back.

“Llewellyn’s murder is one of many murders and I would say one too many. It is not so much that this particular murder is important more than any other murder, but just by virtue of the fact that as things begin to increase, one of them will trigger something different. And we would want that that something different that is triggered is a change—not violent revolution. And so I wrote a post that said I refuse to past on this country to the next generation in the shape that it is in, speaking about crime and corruption and what appears to be a murder and decapitation that has both crime and corruption linked to each other. And so that particular one post ended by saying I want my country back. And the response to that one simple post is leading to what I would call a movement of people who believe that we are losing a grip of the police department for example and the Ministry of National Security that should be working on behalf of the nation, is working for special interest. The Ministry of Natural Resources that should be working on our behalf, works better for special interest than it does. And we could go on and one, the immigration department. And so after Llewellyn’s death, we approached the family and shared the vision that there is just one too many. And if you knew Llewellyn Lucas, he had a cap that had that Belize logo and a knapsack with Belize and they were old and tattered and he wouldn’t want to change them for nothing. But he had many of these small projects, even running independently politically and whenever he came around any of us and anybody else, there was always a project that he wanted to sell us to be a part of to make a difference in the nation. I Want My Country Back approached the family, they wanted a vigil, a prayer vigil to march against crime—not just the crime of Llewellyn, but crime that has been sweeping the nation. And so we said let’s not just have a small ordinary prayer vigil; let’s have something that while we are praying for the family, we are also trying to generate some finances for what they have done, but at the same time, residents from across the country need to put a foot down and say enough is enough. We want the ministries of government that have been paid, and people who have been placed in government, to work on behalf of the people. we want them back; we want the sense of security where a person like William Danny Mason is not able to even enter the country much less enter the country, open up bank accounts, change his name, change his reputation and work himself up to the highest levels of our government in regards to influence; using money. Money that we know all of it was either tainted with blood ro tainted from conning different people.”

    Well the terrorist obviously knew or thought the he was above the law in Belize with all the UDPs and high ranking police in his pocket. They are all bought and paid for and now acting like they didn’t know who Lucifer was. How do you seriously think he got the birth certificate. From Saldivar! That’s what the 50,000 to the Bandits was really for. You really believe that they would have stop selling passports and the Belizean nationality?! They was just waiting for things to cool down like usual. Imagine someone could just walls into the country and commit these unimaginable crimes without impunity and to faceyly drive around with the head in his car like a trophy. He know he owns the UDPs! I bet nothing comes out of this and he walks. Then the dog ;()$$ like Mark Flowers run around harassing Belizeans for petty crimes acting like they are doing something, while raping children (where is Simpliss Barrow now) while having the international criminals come in and terrorize the country and people of this country! while they wine and dine with him. Outrageous!

    This comes as no surprise! Them sons-of-:;)$&& are all criminals themselves. The weasels in the hen house gaurding the fowls. Chester Williams is another criminal that is long over due for an arrest warrant BEING issued against him for conspiracy to murder, drug trafficking, evidence tampering, and the list goes on. and the serpent Dickie Bradley waste not time to defend his fellow deamon.
    Only under the UDP! BAD TO Bad, Belize was never this bad under the PUP ever! This is the worst government and sorry excuse for so called leadership that this country has ever seen. But when you have lawyers (liars) who put food on their tables through crime!, what the hell can you expect?!!!
    This is why the Guatemalans are so aggressive now. They can clearly see Belize is at its weakest, and leadership is truly lacking!

    Head of the police department who supposed to be hard on crime raping children! WTF?! Another Dean Barrow production. Head of the the Homeland security and Minister of the people fraternizing with criminal elements beheading religious leaders! WTF?! Another Dean Barrow production. Don’t believe Dishonorable Saldivar that he severed the ties between him and his Ace boom koom. Just trying to cover his ass now!

    Belize has truly went to the doggs! Who let the doggs out, voters with short term memories! Get a little bit of scraps election time and vote the tyrants back in to further destroy their lives. Can’t see the whole picture. The UDPs are all CRIMINALS!!!
