Assault on Journalist: #FixTheCountryNow campaigners to demonstrate on May 22

#FixTheCountryNow activists have relaunched another campaign to hit the streets of Accra on May 22, 2021 in protest against what it calls the State-sanctioned violence and attack on Journalists and other citizens.

Organizers say the Police would be notified accordingly, insisting this will be the first of sustained crusade to get the country back on track.

“We refuse to engage in flaccid paper-pushing etiquettes or defer to rehearsed practices of faux outrage, or the setting up of endless committees of doom, just for show.

“The call to FixTheCountryNow cannot be allowed to die on the altar of Press Releases. Now means Now!! Not in the Shortest Possible Time.

“In light of this, we have decided to have the Conversation differently, by taking our case to the Streets. We are inviting all well-meaning Ghanaians to join us on May 22nd for a
Massive Protest in Accra to reclaim our rights as citizens. Details of the Route will be released soon,” a statement by the activists said.

Meanwhile, the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Bagbin has asked the law-enforcing agencies not to curtail the rights of the youth to embark on protest in the country.

He warned, “Our country is failing and we must work together in a peaceful approach to avoid a recourse to violence.”

He lauded the efforts of the activists demanding better leadership from the government saying the current protests do not make the youth law breakers.

“It is with that in mind that I wish to commend the youth, both Moslems and Christians, who are demanding a lot more pragmatic measures from the leadership of our country to fix the numerous challenges that confront us at the moment.

“A peaceful approach includes acknowledging the rights of individuals to assemble and to demonstrate without any subterfuge calculated at denying the youth of that right. The youth seeking to protest are not misguided law-breakers,”  he stated in his Eid-Ul-Fitr message to the nation on Thursday.
