Droves of protesters are converging on the Obra Spot near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle Interchange to begin the much-anticipated procession dubbed #FixTheCountry.
The street protest has been long in coming as an earlier intention to embark on the action resulted in a legal tussle between the Accra Regional Police Command and the conveners.
But after an Accra High Court presided over by Justice Ruby Aryeetey on Friday, June 25 quashed the police’s injunction and ruled that the conveners could demonstrate but with express permission from the police.
The two parties, then, settled on Wednesday, August 4.
In between then and now, the Youth Wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) also embarked on a demonstration dubbed ‘March For Justice’ on Tuesday, July 6 to demand justice for victims of police-military brutalities.
The demonstration on Founders’ Day is expected to end at the Black Stars Square.
