ARISE GHANA says demo agenda ready


Pressure Group, Arise Ghana says it has concluded modalities with the Police over its planned demonstration scheduled to take place on June 28 and 29, 2022.

A statement by the Group in Accra said the first day, which is 28th June, the demonstration will begin at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle Interchange, formerly Obra Spot where they will gather between the hours of 12 and 3 p.m.

The protesters will then move through the Nima Police Station Street to the Ako-Adjei interchange and end at the Frontage of the Jubilee House, where they will picket until 10pm.

On the second day, 29th June 2022, the statement said the demonstrators will converge on the El-wak Sports Stadium at 12pm and proceed through the road in front of the Lands Commission unto the Liberation Road then to the Ministry of Finance, where a petition will be presented to the Minister of Finance.

From the Ministry of Finance, the group will move to the forecourt of Parliament House where another petition will be presented to the Speaker.

According to the statement, reasons for the demonstration include persistent and astronomical hikes in fuel prices, the imposition of the E-Levy on the already-burdened Ghanaian, and demand for a full scale bi-partisan Parliamentary probe into Covid-19 expenditures.

The group is therefore calling on all progressive forces and patriotic Ghanaians to come out in their numbers to join the demonstration.
