Arise Ghana Appeals High Court Ruling On Demonstration

Pressure Group, Arise Ghana, has announced plans of appealing the Accra High Court ruling on its planned demonstration.

It will be recalled that the Accra High Court on Monday 27 June 2022, directed the pressure group to demonstrate between the hours of 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Regarding the venue for the demonstration, the protesters were told to start from the Obra Spot to the Independence Square.

The ruling by the court followed an application by the police which said the initial plan by organisers of the demonstration to picket at the Jubilee House was not safe for all interested parties.

However, barely 24 hours after the court’s ruling, the group said it had directed its legal team to appeal.

A statement issued by Arise Ghana’s Ishaq Awudu, who is also the National Communication Secretary of the People’s National Convention, said “Lawyers for Arise Ghana have consequently filed a Notice of Appeal and an application for Stay of Execution of the said Order”.

Per the statement, the police have been duly served of the latest development.

Although the group have filed an appeal, they said the demonstration will come off as planned.

But the protesters shall be meeting at the Obra Spot/Kwame Nkrumah Interchange between the hours of 10 am and 12 PM.

The statement said, “All progressive forces and well-meaning Ghanaians are encouraged to participate in this historic and peaceful demonstration.”

Motivation for the demonstration?

I) Protest against persistent and astronomical hikes in fuel prices by the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government that has imposed excruciating economic hardships on Ghanaians.

II) Protest against the imposition of the obnoxious E-Levy on the already-burdened Ghanaian people by the insensitive Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government.

III) Demand a full-scale and bi-partisan parliamentary probe into COVID-19 expenditures.

IV) Protest against the grabbing of State lands by officials of the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government, particularly the de-classification of huge portions of the Achimota Forest Reserve.

V) Protest against the increased rate of police brutalities and state-sponsored killing of innocent Ghanaians, as well as the growing culture of human rights abuses under the watch of President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia.
