Media alert: On Ghana’s Independence Day, activists will demand President Akufo-Addo reject anti-LGBTQ+ Bill

When:

Wednesday 6 March, 11am – 1pm

Where:

The Ghana High Commission, 1038 Arcadia Street, Hatfield, Pretoria

What:

Tomorrow, March 6, 2024 marks the global day of protest commemorating Ghana’s Independence Day. Activists from the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) and Gender Dynamix will protest outside the Republic of Ghana’s High Commission to South Africa. The protest will call on Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo to reject the Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Bill, 2024 — a bill that would further criminalise LGBTQ+ people in Ghana. A full statement will be issued tomorrow together with the memorandum that will be delivered to the High Commission. Photos and interviews will be available on request.
