A Candlelight Vigil in Belmopan for 16 Days of Activism

Michelle Kwan

Just before news time tonight the U.S. Embassy held a candlelight vigil on the steps of Independence Plaza in Belmopan as part of the many events to commemorate the sixteen days of activism against gender-based violence. We’ll have a full report on the event in Thursday’s newscast including a testimonial from a young survivor. The event was also the first official event involving the new U.S. Ambassador to Belize, Michelle Kwan. Kwan arrived in Belize last Friday and was one of the speakers at tonight’s event. In her first interview with the media corps, she speaks about the first five days and participating in tonight’s event.
