This Sunday, September twenty-ninth will mark some sixty-three years since the establishment of the People’s United Party. It’s a big moment for members and supporters of the P.U.P. as they reflect on the history of the party. For the second year in a row, a photographic exhibition is being held at Independence Hall in Belize City. The exhibit targeted the youths and many students gathered at the party headquarters for the pictorial featuring Belize’s political history, the road to independence under the guidance of the late Father of the Nation, George Price, as well as the accomplishments of the P.U.P. The theme is “Remembering the Legacy of George Price.”
