Former Leaders and Government Ministers to Lead Protest March in Belize City Against Israel’s actions against Palestine
Come next week, former leaders and government ministers will be leading a march in Belize City. The march is in protest of the atrocities occurring against the Palestines, and the continuous bloodshed at the hands of the Israelis. One of those persons leading the charge for the upcoming march is former government minister, Assad Shoman.
Assad Shoman, Ambassador: “Another way of giving our support yes people all over the world have been doing it, it took us a little time but we’re getting there. As I mentioned people like Dean Barrow, Said Musa, Godfrey, others that maybe they don’t want their name mentioned but many people are interested in this and that are helping us to try and get as big a crowd as possible to come out on Wednesday the 22nd of November in the streets of Belize City I think they plan to start somewhere around Battlefield Park or something like that and to show our solidarity and to show our condemnation of genocide to show that we don’t believe that killing babies is a way to defend yourself and so on. And it is a way of expressing our support for a dignified existence for all people. So the Palestinian flag that you see waving all over the world now has come to be regarded as a flag of dignity and when you fly that you’re saying to people I believe in freedom, I believe in self determination, I believe in justice and we’ll have a lot of flags out for people to carry with pride during that march. So I would like a lot of students to come. I would imagine that the trade unions will very much want to be a part of this they don’t want to be left out I mean trade unions all over the world have been for example trying to stop ships that are taking arms to Israel even Starbucks workers making a declaration standing up for Palestine so I’m sure that the unions in Belize, the teachers union and all those unions will be itching to come out and show their solidarity.”
Once the details are finalized for the march, our newsroom will report on it accordingly.
