#FixTheCountry convenors, Police meet in court over demo today

An Accra High Court will today, Monday, 14 June 2021 hear a substantive case involving the Ghana Police Service and the conveners of #FixTheCountry campaign.

The group which was suspended indefinitely from going ahead with a planned protest in Accra by the police secured a supreme court ruling which reversed the earlier indefinite restraining order by the high court.

However, the Ghana Police is still in court challenging the decision of the group to stage a demonstration in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Police, therefore, urged the public to desist from following the convenors to protest since the substantive case is still in court.

But speaking to Class News, a convener of the group, Felicity Nelson said the intimidatory actions of the police is rather energizing the base of the group to build momentum and to ensure that Ghana is fixed.

She said: “Funny enough I think this continuous resistance by the police, the antagonistic relationship they seem to have with us is actually helping and building momentum because now more people are thinking that actually, this is getting ridiculous. One protest that people want to go, why are you not allowing them to go on their protest…?
