WATCH: Belizeans protest the reopening of the PGIA

A handful of Belizeans took to the streets this afternoon to join the “Nuh open di PGIA” protest. These persons are vehemently against reopening the Philip Goldson International Airport, which is set for August 15.

A handful of Belizeans took to the streets this afternoon to join the “Nuh open di PGIA” protest. These persons are vehemently against reopening the Philip Goldson International Airport, which is set for August 15. The general consensus of the protesters were that the lives of Belizeans matter more than money, or foreign currency, and that if the government invested more in the agricultural sector, the country would be able to sustain itself. The organizer of the protest, Makeada Marin, told us why she felt the need to give Belizeans a space to express their opinions. Additionally, protester Yaya Marin Coleman stated what they want the government to do.

There is also an online aspect to the protest. The virtual petition is available on the Krem Sunday Review Facebook page, or on Makeada Marin’s personal Facebook page.
