Convenors of the #FixTheCountry campaign are to appear before an Accra High Court today Friday, June 4, 2021.
It is the day for the hearing after the Ghana Police Service secured an ex parte injunction against a massive demonstration slated for May 9.
The group is expected to make a case as to why the courts must allow for the protest to take place despite the reasons advanced by the police, per the May 6 court order.
The demonstration – spearheaded by the youth, is meant to amplify sentiments such as the rising unemployment rate, inefficient health systems, the skyrocketing cost of rent, poor road networks among others, which the youth say are hurting their standard of living.
The convenors in a statement called on Ghanaians who supported their campaign to join them march to the High Court today.
