The Occupy Julorbi House has hit day two despite a lot of restrictions from the police and the arrests that have been made.
After the destruction caused in yesterday’ s protest, some celebrities have trooped on social media to make their voices heard. The likes of Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, EL, Efia Odo, Bridget Otoo and many others have been speaking on the issue in diverse ways.
Some celebrities were of the view that the government was using the police to abuse the rights of Ghanaians who were staging a peaceful protest that is within their rights. But the police, on the other hand have made it clear that they will not allow the protesters access to certain perimeters close to the Jubilee House.

” Whether you support the arrested protesters or not you cannot deny that they have the constitutional right to assemble and freely express their grievances. Dissent after all is the hallmark of every democracy. Our right to enjoy the freedoms our constitution has bestowed on us should not be unjustly curtained especially not by the institutions of state mandated to uphold the law! . .
