Over the weekend, Ghanaians embarked on a #FixTheCountry demonstration, except they were not in Ghana.
A number of Ghanaians who live in Spain took to the streets with #FixTheCountry messages and calling on the Ghanaian political elites to fix the country fight to lead every election cycle.
For them, it was also an opportunity to call out the Ghanaian Embassy in Spain on a number of issues including what they call the high cost of passport fees.
This demonstration is the first on-the-ground #FixTheCountry demonstration held by Ghanaians, meanwhile, Ghanaians living in Ghana have been prevented from doing so.
Last week, the Supreme Court nullified an injunction the police had secured to ban the demonstration.
Today, however, the police have dragged the conveners of the campaign to court again – still on the matter of being able to hit the streets to register their grievances.
Motivated by the show of support from Ghanaians in Spain, the conveners have adopted a new hashtag that sends a clear message to the political elite and the police who keep trying to deny them their inalienable right to demonstrate thanks to a law that was introduced to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
#WeGoDemonstrate is also an assurance to many young Ghanaians who keep waiting for a call from the #FixTheCountry convener to hit the streets.
Already, young Nigerians hijacked their Democracy Day celebration to mount multiple nationwide #June12thProtests last Saturday.
