Arise Ghana to appeal court ruling against picketing at Revolution...

Organisers of Arise Ghana, a pressure group, say they will appeal the High Court ruling prohibiting them from holding a demonstration at Revolution Square, near the Jubilee House.

The Court, in its ruling, moved the venue for the demonstration from Revolution Square to Independence Square. 

The pressure group was expected to picket at Revolution Square from Tuesday, November 15 to 17, 2022, to protest the current economic hardships in the country. 

The ruling by the court followed an application by the Police, which said the initial plan by the organisers of the demonstration to picket at Revolution Square from 1200 hours to 1700 hours would not augur well for the safety of the demonstrators and the public. 

Mr Monah said it was agreed that the duration of the picketing would be reduced from six hours to two hours to avoid the rush hour. 

Mr Monah stated that the dates and venue for the picketing, Revolution Square, were carefully selected because the objective of the event was to address the President and the Government, whose office and seat were directly opposite. 

“The Revolution Square is the symbol of probity, transparency, and accountability, which are at the core of the picketing,” he said.
