The US Embassy here in Belize sent out a warning to all US citizens to stay away from the area. Not that any Americans would be targeted...they were just cautioning everyone that any demonstration has the potential to turn violent so "be cautious". But, I had to take some paperwork into the office and as I was coming back home the march was just beginning.
I could hear the teachers singing as they marched...it looked very orderly and peaceful to me. Please pray for the demonstrators and for the police that everyone will remain calm and behave in a professional manner.
