From across the country, from all its branches, BNTU members descended on Belmopan to take a stance against the recent spike of crime committed against women and children. They marched from in front of the Belmopan Comprehensive School to the Belmopan Civic Center. They did this to increase awareness and influence policymakers and those in power to do something about the crimes being committed against women and children. In the past few weeks, women and children have been the victims of gun violence. Children have been the victims of sexual attacks, children like 17 month old Allyssa Nunez lost her life after she was raped by a caretaker. Women and children have been killed by gunmen in Belize City. The BNTU says this needs to cease. At today’s rally BNTU’s National President, Senator Elena Smith, was joined by the Special Envoy for Women and Children, Attorney Lisa Shoman, among other dynamic speakers.
