Parade protest


Arise Ghana demo: Kweku Baako reveals what will make him return to the streets

He was commenting on the recent Arise Ghana demonstration which saw scores of people pour onto the streets in protest against economic hardship.

He added that he has reached a peak of sorts with demonstrations but will not sit on fence when the 4th Republic is under threat.

“For me, I have done demonstration for a very long and I’m tired. I’m also advanced in age, we are not the same. You can’t beat nature. At some stage, it is your mind which does the work and not your body. But if someone attempts to stage a coup d’état to disrupt the 4th Republic, for that I will hit the streets,” Kweku Baako said.

Arise Ghana, an amalgamation of groups and individuals organized the two-day protest to highlight the rising cost of living and issues of misgovernance.“I’m a bit disappointed that the protest did not end peacefully and smoothly. I wanted it to have a smooth sailing and peaceful. All these help with our democratic credentials as a nation. It exposes our image in a very positive way to the world,” he stated.

Despite a court order relative to time and route of the protest, the leaders insisted on following a route other than the one ordered by the court, an insistence by the Police that they obey the agreed upon route resulted in the skirmishes.
