Organisers are using the protest to demand the resignation of the Governor of the central bank, Dr. Ernest Addison, and his deputies over what they say is mismanagement of state resources.
The protest which initially was slated for September 12, 2023, was postponed to October 3, 2023, due to the failure of the police to mark out safe zones for the demonstration.
Minority leader Cassiel Ato Forson, told the media on September 11 that the protest is a constitutional right and would be peaceful.
Police have agreed to provide security for the protesters.
The October 3, 2023, demonstration follows the successful three-day demonstration by Democracy Hub dubbed OccupyJulorbiHouse protests.
Although police mounted barricades around the Jubilee House to prevent protesters from picketing, protesters were resilient and occupied the streets close to the seat of the presidency for all three days.
OccupyJulorbiHouse is Ga for "Occupy the residence of the son of the thief" and is a play on the words "Occupy Jubilee House".
