Parade protest


I can’t see with my right eye’ – Injured protestor Hit In The Eye By Rubber Bullet Says

Dozens of protesters sustained serious injuries from teargas, rubber bullets and stun grenades, used by police to disperse crowds. Seeing things like broken bones or someone hit in the eye is not rare, they’re dangerous when fired up close and they’re dangerous from far away.

The right eye of Nii Ayi Mensah, who was injured at the Krom Ay3 Hye demonstration organized by the Arise Ghana group, is now blind.

On the first day of the demonstration, the Krom Ay3 Hye leadership and police authorities were unable to come to an agreement on the routes for their march against economic hardship, which resulted in confusion.

The protesters were then attacked by the police using water cannons and tear gas.

On June 30, 2022, the Arise Ghana leadership visited the protesters at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital who were in need of assistance.
