You can’t demonstrate at Revolution Square – Police to #DumsorMustStop conveners

by orderketozenseacv

The police have directed the conveners of the ‘#DumsorMustStop’ demonstration to stage their protests at Independence Square instead of the planned Revolution Square.

Actress Yvonne Nelson, political activist Selorm Dramani Dzramado, and Henry Osei Akoto are spearheading the protest to demand uninterrupted power supply across the country.

The group had planned to hold the event on Saturday, May 25, 2024, opposite the seat of government, the Jubilee House.

However, in a statement signed by the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Arhin Kwasi Annor, the police explained that the Revolution Square is a security zone; therefore, a protest cannot be held within that area.

Thus, the protest and picketing at “Revolution Square may endanger public defence, public order, and public safety and violate the rights and freedom of other persons.”

The law enforcement body also emphasised that “12 midnight for closure may compromise security which may lead to violence, endanger public defence, public order, public safety, public health and the running of essential services”.

Hence, in the “interest of public order, public safety and the running of essential services,” the Command requested the conveners to relocate the picketing to Independence Square.

It will be recalled that Yvonne Nelson notified the Ghana Police Service on May 9, 2024, of the upcoming protest against the country’s erratic electricity supply.

In the letter addressed to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr George Akuffo Dampare, the actress indicated that the vigil would occur at Revolution Square, starting at 8:30 am and ending at midnight.

The letter also expressed frustration over the unacceptable power supply situation and aimed to provide the president with evidence of its debilitating effects.

In a tweet, Yvonne Nelson had previously invited Ghanaians to join her in a massive campaign against recent erratic power cuts.

This call for action follows similar protests by Yvonne and several celebrities in 2015 to express displeasure over consistent power outages.

Yvonne Nelson hopes for a similar turnout this time and seeks the support of the general public for the imminent protest against ‘dumsor’.
