Stop the exploration for oil on the Great Belize Barrier Reef – TAKE ACTION!
Prime Minister Dean Barrow
“Government is perfectly prepared to hear the voice of the people and so in that context Cabinet decided yesterday that it would accede to the request. Now, we don’t want to be misunderstood. We are not saying that we will never re-issue that exploration block. We are saying that we won’t reissue it for the time being in order to ensure that OCEANA has this opportunity to continue to lead the debate and make this effort to get a referendum. If OCEANA doesn’t succeed then that would have sent a clear message and the government reserves the right at that point to reissue the concession and what UNESCO has to say will no doubt be weight in the balance but will certainly not determine our decision.”
