Today, young Ghanaians are keeping the protest fire burning after weeks of protesting and sending direct order to those in power to their jobs and #FixTheCountry.
Prevented by a court from taking their outrage to the streets, the convenors of the campaign and their supporters have been keeping the campaign alive with their online protests.
By providing a seeming united front, they are proving that they will not allow the campaign that started with hashtag become empty with no concrete achievements.
To keep the conversation going, the convenors asked their supporters to engage in another online protest today.
Using the hashtag #DearGhana, the protestors are to send an open letter to the country.
The letter could be in any format, poetry, sign language, performance or installation art and a good old written letter.
Which ever way, you want to send a letter to Ghana, you can do so.
A number of protestors have responded to the call and have already sent out a number of #DearGhana posts.
People are expressing their concerns, hopes and aspirations for a country that works for everyone and not only those with money or are in close proximity to state power or authority.
A country where basic human rights are respected and one wouldn’t have to bargain for it because of their bank accounts.
A country where education, access to affordable quality health care and others are a given and not because of your connections.
A country where students wouldn’t dread the end of their National Service because they know they will more likely end up unemployed or with a low paying exploitative job offer than to be gainfully employed.
You can still join today’s protest if you wish to. The hashtags to use are #DearGhana, #FixOurMotherland, and #FixTheCountry.
