New date and venue for #DumsorMustStop demo announced amid court injunction

The organizers of the #DumsorMustStop protest have revealed a revised date and location for their demonstration against Ghana’s indiscriminate power outages.

The rally was first planned for Friday, May 25, 2024, at Revolution Square, which is right across from the Jubilee House entrance. It was led by Ghanaian actress and socialite Yvonne Nelson and two other people.

In a meeting with the Accra Regional Police Command on Wednesday, May 15, the Ghana Police Service, however, disapproved of it and requested a change in time and location.

Yvonne Nelson, Henry Akoto, and Selorm Dzramado, the conveners, have now postponed the protest for Saturday, June 8, 2024.

The protest will begin at the University of Ghana, Legon entrance at 2:00 PM, and it will go until 10:00 PM. Protesters will then march to the Tetteh Quarshie Roundabout.

At the roundabout, a platform will be set up so that demonstrators can address the administration and express their worries about the significant harm that these power outages are causing to Ghanaians.

The Ghana Police Service is currently requesting a court order to stop the demonstration from happening on the originally scheduled dates.

The Service’s motion states, among other things, “I am finally advised and verily believe it to be true that this is just cause for this Honourable Court to exercise its jurisdiction in the interest of public order, public safety, defense, and effective policing to issue an order to prohibit or restrain the Respondents, their agents, assigns, and anyone claiming through them from holding the intended picketing or demonstration at Revolution Square opposite the Jubilee House.”
