I assume all will be peaceful, so this is just a notice

Security Message: Planned Demonstrations Monday, September 19

U.S. Embassy Belize informs U.S. citizens that a demonstration is expected to take place at Independence Hill in Belmopan from at 9:00 am - 1:00 pm on Monday, September 19. The Belize National Teachers’ Unionwill demonstrate to demand a pay raise and action in areas of national interest.
Review your personal security plans; remain aware of your surroundings, including local events; and monitor local news stations for updates. Maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security and follow instructions of local authorities.

Should probably put out a similar notice out to all residents of the US regarding Election Day?

I don't know, I think everything in the US will be fine. The trouble makers are calming down a little due to the poor performance of their candidate of late. I guess she could encourage more violence. Of course there will be some disillusioned lefties who might still act up after the election but most are starting to see the writing on the wall. wink
