BPP REMEMBERS A FALLEN HERO - DANNY CONORQUIE
25th September 2014 marks a horrible day on which the worse fears of Belizeans were realised, with the cold-blooded murder of a young Belizean Special Constable, Danny Conorquie. Two years ago while serving this nation, this brave Belizean was mercilessly cut down at the Caracol Archaeological Site, well within Belizean territory. This egregious act of cowardice, perpetrated by external usurpers from across the border serves as a most unfortunate watershed moment in the ongoing history of aggression perpetrated by misinformed Guatemalans who covet our Belizean patrimony. Amid the continued acts of both overt and covert aggression, being carried out by elements of the repressive Guatemalan oligarchy, it is imperative that a renewed patriotic consciousness is adopted by Belizeans...not only during the month of September, but throughout the entire year. This can only be achieved by way of placing a concerted focus on teaching: Belizean history, engendering civic pride and above all ensuring that our people remain attuned to the local, national and global socio-economic and political realities facing our nation. Key to this effort is the absolute need for Belizeans to value this beautiful “Jewel”, the Almighty has blessed us with. Every Belizean...young, old, rich, poor, of all ethnic groups and from every corner of this nation must be encouraged to explore all 8,867 square miles of this nation and be willing to defend our territorial integrity with their lives, if need be. Therefore, your Belize Progressive Party - BPP takes this opportunity to honour an unsung hero, Danny Conorquie, because his mortal sacrifice, has fostered increased awareness to the existential threat that looms. With this, we extend condolences to his mother, Ms. Jean Conorquie, and her entire family on this solemn occasion and assure you that your loss shall never be forgotten. In that vein, the BPP asserts that no stone must be left unturned, until those guilty of this crime are brought to justice. 8867 Today 8867 Tomorrow 8867 Forever Belize, Sovereign and Free - NO ICJ!
