Below were some comments under the post
The actual truth with my clear open mind and clean heart, expressing whatever is embedded inside me for a long time which I didn't say just because I was nervous. But Today, by gathering all the courage and motivation, I just want to say that I actually have nothing to say
“Ghana is sick, we are the herbs. We are going to heal it”
Protest is a tool that's useful in a truly democratic society
The Fix The Country demonstration finally came off after a long battle between the conveners of the protest and the authorities.
Initially, the conveners had planned that they were set to hit the street on May 9, 2021, as YEN.com.gh earlier reported.
They wrote to the police to notify them of their intention to storm the streets of the capital in demand of an end to the excruciating hardships in the country.
The police, however, secured an ex parte injunction against the massive demonstration.
As that delayed, Ghanaians living in Spain embarked on a huge demonstration against the Ghana government requesting that the country is fixed by the political leaders.
However, with the help of three lawyers who defended the FixTheCountry movement in court, the injunction was overturned.
The Supreme Court later quashed the High Court injunction on the #FixtheCountry protest.
