The much anticipated National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s demonstration to demand justice for all persons killed and brutalized by what they described as state-sponsored thuggery and/or adventurism by police and military force is currently underway in Accra.
Dubbed “March for Justice” the protest is also to demand social justice for the teaming unemployed youth in the country and to call on leadership to address the challenges which hinder the better Ghana agenda Ghanaians yearn for.
Under the auspices of the Youth Wing of the opposition NDC, hundreds clad in black and red outfit converged at green hill near Accra Mall to partake in the protest.
A statement released earlier by the organizers said protesters would march through principal streets of Accra namely Madina, Accra business district, Osu, Lapaz and converge at the Jubilee House to present a petition to the President.
“The protest will follow these routes: One chapter will start from Madina, the other from the Accra business district, the third from Osu and the last from Lapaz,” the letter indicated.
“We will all meet at the Jubilee House to present a petition to the President of the Republic, to the Inspector General of Police at the police head-office and the Speaker of Parliament at parliament House”.
Photos from the demonstration sighted on social media by GhanaPlus.com saw protestors had in their procession placards some of which reads “Ghana Youth Arise for Our Country, The Country Needs Equality Enough of the Killings, Enough of the Intimidation, Enough of the Borrowing, Enough of the Police Brutalities, The Police and the Military Needs to be Transparent”, “Kum yen preko”, “Police Brutalities We Need Justice”, “Akufo-Addo is a Dictator”.
