Permission denied to use Central Park for Vigil. Now to be at the Lion's Den.
Statement by organizers
Unfortunately the elected council has denied us access to use the park for a vigil that calls for justice for Laddie. This town has been certified a child friendly municipality and calling for justice for a child that was murdered at the hands of police is our civic responsibility of every citizen. Furthermore, it's a constitutional privilege of every Belizean to have the right to assemble peaceful and within the previews of the law.
It is heartbreaking and disappointing that such decision was denied under the excuses of a spike in COVID-19 cases, when graduations and parties have been allowed all over the island on the beach and at bars on a weekly basis, without our authorities stopping or saying anything. This is about Laddie and we will carry on honoring the life of Laddie. As such, Notwithstanding , we are happy to say that instead, we will have a drive-through vigil at the San Pedro Lions Den.
We will call for justice for Laddie at any cost!
