Countrywide Demonstration by Teachers on Thursday

Kathleen Flowers

It is not known what the union has in place for this Friday, but as we said, there will be two more days of industrial action by the teachers bringing further pressure on the government. After meetings this afternoon of regional branches, the B.N.T.U. Belize District Branch President Kathleen Flowers also announced that on Thursday, a mass countrywide demonstration will be held.


Kathleen Flowers, President, Belize District Branch, B.N.T.U.

“On Thursday we are doing out mass countrywide demonstration. As we speak, there are people working the machinery to make sure that that demonstration can be done within the legal parameters and framework of this country. And we have our elements of the public relations team preparing to get the word out because we are calling on every living person we know and are friends with.

    Guess who will LOSE the MOST because of Mose, PUP, Luke, Keisha and Kathleen? “Parents, children… students, grandma, grandpa and their best cousins; everybody”

    Look at PSE 2016: 48 percent of students achieved a satisfactory grade C or better in English. Mathematics continue to be a worry with a mean score of just 50.6 percent and only 35 percent with satisfactory scores….Kathleen does NOT care….

    Ronald Reagan on Aug. 5, 1981 fired more than 11,000 air traffic controllers…

    BNTU is WRONG to act on the AG report since Bradley had made so many errors…

    Luke’s agenda is partisan political; the strike is therefore illegal….

    Ed U. Kate because of people like you Belize is in this situation. Its a shame of people like you. Your comments shows that you are in favor of corruption in this country. People who are wrongfully enriching themselves will favor corruption while a lot of poor people have nothing to eat or if they eat, they do not have the right food on their table. While the teachers fight a cause and sacrifice their salaries, which people like you should be fighting, you show selfishness. Find some guidance is our Lord God and you will think different. There are times when we need to fight corruption and if it is the government which me and you voted in, then it is you and me that needs to stand against corruption.
