Occupy Flagstaff House Demonstrators target parliament


Organizers of the Occupy Flagstaff House demonstration Concerned Ghanaians for Responsible Governance (CGRG) have hinted of their intentions of organizing another demonstration in the coming days.

 Speaking on behalf of the group Nana Kweku Awuah told Citinews that the group will organize another demonstration which will be targeted at the Legislature.

‘Our next target is parliament but we have not decided on the date yet’.

He said the upcoming demonstration is intended to get parliament to be proactive in holding government accountable.

He stated that Members of Parliament were elected into parliament for a reason and part of that reason was to speak on behalf of the people and take decisions that contribute to their well being.

Even though the group is yet to meet and decide on a date he assured the public that the demonstration will come off in a different form and that the agreed date will be made known.

The CGRG on July 1, Republic Day organized the Occupy Flagstaff House demonstration that saw about 300 largely middle class defied a rainfall to march in protest of what they described as the worsening economic conditions of the country.

The demonstration which was almost disallowed by the police finally came off under heavy security presence.

Chief of Staff who accepted a petition on behalf of the president assured the demonstrators that their request will be duly addressed.
