Referendum still on

Belize City, Belize, February 14, 2012

On Friday, February 24, all registered voters of Belize will be able to go to the polls to vote on the issue of offshore oil exploration and drilling as the Belize Coalition to Save our Natural Heritage will be carrying out a national People’s Referendum which will allow all registered Belizeans to vote on the issue.   The Coalition is aiming at capturing the opinion of at least 10% of the registered voters.

The People’s Referendum gives voice to the thousands of Belizeans who never got a chance to vote when the offshore referendum triggered under the Referendum Act was derailed on the basis of unverifiable signatures. The unverified signatures were largely based on inconsistencies between signatures on the record cards at the Election and Boundaries Office and the signatures on the petition forms.

The Coalition calls on all registered voters to stay tuned to local stations to hear where the voting booth will be located in their area.  Anyone wishing to volunteer or donate in kind or cash can call 223-7266 or email: coalitioncoordinator@apamo.net or contact any Coalition member in your area.

The Belize Coalition to Save our Natural Heritage remains committed to achieving a ban on oil exploration in Belize’s offshore and in the protected areas, and all its member organizations remain united in the fight to achieve a ban.
