Friday, January 15th will be observed as George Price Day. Happy and Safe Holiday.

THE FATHER OF THE NATION OF BELIZE, RT. HON GEORGE C. PRICE - As a national activist and leader, he moved constantly among the people of the nation he LOVED in the most remote of villages and homes.

He worked tirelessly and with a commitment to non-violence to FREE British Honduras of British rule, colonialism and make it the independent nation of Belize it is today, for better or for worse.

In the eyes of some, Belize remains "3rd World". In our eyes, it is relative. Belize is always developing, such as it develops at all, at a snail's pace.

Still, most Belizeans would not trade their independence and freedom for anything else. Que Viva Belize. Long Live Belize.

Celebrating George Price Day

George Cadle Price Humility



Words to inspire, from 1950 to 1981 and beyond.

Quotations:
"...is a Caribbean and Central American nation which works and lives a revolution that is peaceful, constructive, new, progressive and Belizean. It is our own with all our national attributes." September 21, 1981. Quoted in Godfrey Smith, George Price A Life Revealed, 2011

"National Unity! That is the keynote of this phase of our history. This unity is welding our people into a united, solid front. From the districts come assurances of support in our fight against devaluation… We must continue this movement towards national unity. We must unite and organize ourselves in strong labor unions, strong credit unions, strong cooperatives, to present a solid front against the possible invasion of any exploiting capital." Billboard. January 6, 1950. Quoted in Assad Shoman, A history of Belize in thirteen chapters, 2011.

Remembering The Father

The government took a small break from fighting against the pandemic to pay homage to Belize's first premier and Prime Minister, Father of the Nation, George Price. Friday would have been George Price's 102nd birthday, and while he is no longer here to celebrate it, the PUP ensured that the annual wreath laying ceremony lived on. Several members were present at the ceremony, including the DPM who, in the absence of the PM, gave a speech. Here is a snippet.



The ceremony took place at George Price's grave at the Lord Ridge Cemetery.

==================


George Price - The Father of Belize
The Right Honorable George Cadle Price, P.C. (15 January 1919 – 19 September 2011), was a Belizean statesman who served twice as the head of government of Belize from 1961–84 and 1989–93. He served as First Minister and Premier under British rule until independence in 1981 and was the nation's first prime minister after independence that year. He is considered to have been one of the principal architects of Belizean independence. Today he is referred to by many as the "Father of the Nation." Price effectively dominated Belizean politics from the early 1960s until his 1996 retirement from party leadership, serving as the nation's head of government under various titles for most of that period.

Born in Belize City in what was then British Honduras, to William and Irene (née Escalante) Price, he entered politics in 1947 with his election to the Belize City Council. In 1949, with the devaluation of the British Honduran dollar he, together with a group of citizens formed the People's Committee. It was the start of the "peaceful, constructive Belizean revolution". On 29 September 1950, he co-founded the People's United Party, which he led for four decades and which was devoted to the political and economic independence of the British colony, then known as British Honduras.
