Recall the police service obtained the restraining order from the Accra High Court on May 6th, 2021 against the group’s intention of staging a street demonstration on the principle streets of Accra on May 9th, 2021.
The restraining order by the Accra High Court was met with a lot of criticisms from the general public who alleged that the police was using the court to prevent the youth who has been using the hashtag on social media to demonstrate.
Yesterday, the lawyers for the conveners and the movement hit the Supreme Court to appeal the decision of the Accra High Court which prevents the conveners and demonstrators from hitting the streets of Accra to protest.
It was a big win for the conveners and the followers of the movement as the Supreme Court over-turned the verdict taken by the Accra High Court on May 6th, 2021.
