In a show of solidarity, a group of prominent Ghanaian celebrities have united with the Democracy Hub group for Day 2 of the #OccupyJulorbiHouse demonstration.
The protest, which initially began on Thursday, took an unexpected turn when the police intervened, apprehending 49 of the organisers and detaining them on charges of unlawful assembly.
The incident occurred at the 37 bus terminal, where demonstrators had gathered for the planned protest. Negotiations between the protesters’ legal representatives and law enforcement led to their release late on Thursday evening.
Undeterred by the arrests and alleged intimidation by the police, the group remains steadfast in their commitment to continue the protest.
On Friday morning, September 22nd, notable figures including Efia Odo, EL, Kelvyn Boy, Veana Negasi and comedian Warris, among others, joined the assembled demonstrators at the 37 lorry park, preparing to march to the Jubilee House.
Here are some tweets of celebrities showing solidarity and showing up at the demonstration:
