Demand Government Protection For Sacred Sites in Belize

A construction company has essentially destroyed one of Belize's largest Mayan pyramids with backhoes and bulldozers to extract crushed rock for a road-building project... We demand that the government make rules and laws that will stop this happening and protect  these sacred land marks not only are these spiritual places and great places of importance to the world, but they are a link to our past that we can learn so much from... 
This Mayan  Pyramid was destroyed for greed and nothing more, it was there, it was cheap to destroy and use and we can get off with it and save money and it has to STOP, they need to be protected as historical landmarks and those who think of destroying them have to know that punishments will be severe, large fines plus prison time, loss of contracts and so on, more needs to be put in place to protect the history of humankind...   
The Belize community-action group Citizens Organized for Liberty Through Action called the destruction of the archaeological site "an obscene example of disrespect for the environment and history... 


They knew this was a 2.300 year old Pyramid and they destroyed it, all that culture gone, history gone because human ignorance, greed and sheer laziness and its wrong, We ask the government of Belize to take a stand, punish these people to the full extent of the law and make all ancient areas protected under their laws.
I ask you all to share this and get the work out to everyone you know, to take a stand and fight the wrongs of the world...
Keep up the good work and fight the good fight, with respect always...
