By way of a brief background; the GMO issue escalated earlier this year when rumours circulated that the Government of Belize was about to give the green light to the importation of seed stock. Understandably, this threat was taken very seriously, and a group of concerned citizens, Belizeans Against GMOs (BAGMO – and we promise to try to keep the acronyms at a minimum) launched a GMO Awareness Month to educate the public about this issue.
“Who in their right mind would deliberately destroy a structure that was created thousands of years ago, using the most primitive tools to build something of such complexity and beauty? This is a part of not only Belize’s, but the world’s cultural heritage, and it has been demolished for road fill. And in a country where we have no end of suitable material just laying around,” he said.
