Carnival Route passes through Emergency Zone

Saturday’s Carnival route takes revelers and the public along the Central American Boulevard to the corner of Vernon Street, a significant area that is part of the State of Emergency zone where the police have broad sweeping powers. The Co-Chair of the National Celebrations Commission and Acting Prime Minister of Belize is Patrick Faber. Attorney Audrey Matura Shepherd believes since the areas have been declared unsafe and zoned where rights don’t apply for the next thirty days, the National Celebrations Commission should immediately change the carnival route to avoid the areas declared to be unsafe.

Jose Sanchez: “Should the carnival route be changed being that it does pass through these designated zones for preventative detention?”

Audrey Matura Shepherd Attorney: “Well let me tell you my opinion is yes because of what section 18 allows. The least people go through those areas; for me in my personal opinion is best because carnival is such a mix group and so many things are just so dynamic I wouldn’t recommend that the Carnival group go through these designated areas. I think they should change their route and avoid that like go all the way along Marine Parade or something like that but for the safety of everyone involved don’t go through those areas especially if the authorities are saying the section that they will use was what they believe to be an imminent threat to public safety then why would you go through the very same areas where you believe there is an imminent threat to public safety? Why take the public through that area? No you don’t take that chance if they believe their own Narrative is right; you believe your narrative make sure that all September celebrations do not go through those areas. Put it out to another area so that you show that you are genuinely are concerned for public safety. Since it’s the same person who is behind this state of emergencies that is also responsible for the September celebrations this will be easy. That one person that has all the authority to make all the necessary changes and I will strongly advise public to call that he makes those changes. There is no way you can pass today or yesterday a proclamation that designates these areas as state of emergency areas but yet on a very festive day bring the entire public, drag them through the very area that you just declared a state of emergency. No that can’t work, he has to move the route. There should be a public call for the route to removed so that innocent people are not brought in this area where there is there is a public emergency due to the safety of the public.”

Carnival Road March 2018 brings together thousands of Belizeans

Despite the recent spike in crime in Belize City, thousands of patriotic and carnival revelers came out on Saturday, September 8 th to enjoy the annual Carnival Road March 2018. The anticipated event is part of the September Celebrations and features a grand parade with creative and elaborate patriotic costumes.

Carnival participants had been in the festive mood since early on Saturday, as they took part in the morning jouvert hours before the carnival parade. The road march started from the Central American Boulevard at the entrance of the city shortly after 1PM. Thousands of spectators, including some from Ambergris Caye, lined up along the parade route to witness hundreds of dancers make their way under high heat and humidity to Princess Margaret Drive and into the Marion Jones Sports Complex.
