For Immediate Release
Tuesday, October 8, 2019
In light of these recent actions by the Prime Minister and his party the Belize Youth Movement (BYM) is making a call to all the Belizean Youth to rise up and demand that their student loans be also written off. Under the UDP, We live in a Belize that is biased, we live in a country that is not fair and in one where only those select cronies obtain the opportunities that should be present for all our young brothers and sisters.
The Belize Youth Movement is outraged at the actions taken by Prime Minister Dean Barrow and members of his UDP party at last Friday’s House Meeting as they all voted to write off a $40,000.00 loan to Joshua Perdomo.
As a youth centered organization, it is utterly despicable that all members of the government voted to forgive the loan but none of them have ever presented a single solution that would benefit all students. Let us all come together and demand better from those we elect! Let us demand that what is good for them is also good for everyone. Better must come from those we elect.
