NDC Stands By Arise Ghana Over Police Court Action

The Youth wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has expressed solidarity with the organisers of the Arise Ghana Demo following the police’s quest to cause some changes in the protest.

The initially intended 48hours protest scheduled for June 28, 2022, has already been changed to seven hours each day from 3 pm to 10 pm on June 28 and 29, following a series of meetings with the police.

The police, however, want the group to conduct the protest during the day citing the safety of demonstrators and the general public.

“Due to lack of agreement between the police and organisers on the time for the demonstration and location for their planned picketing, the police have no option but to submit the process to the court for a determination”, the Ghana Police Service said in a statement.

Reacting to this, the National Youth Wing of the NDC said the police administration’s last-minute court action cannot stop Ghanaians from demonstrating against Akufo-Addo/Bawumia’s cruel government.

It also urged the organisers not to kowtow to the “cowardice tactics by the police and government”.

“We stand in solidarity with the organisers and would lend all support where necessary to ensure Ghanaians rise in unison against this tyrannical government”, it concluded.
