As citizens gather for a major protest in Monrovia, access to popular social media platforms has been blocked.
On the day before the June 7 protest, the inspector general of the Liberia National Police, Patrick Sudue, said the government was concerned about a looming terrorist threat in the subregion.
Ahead of the mass protest expected to take place tomorrow in Monrovia, President George Weah has ordered that all government ministries and agencies must remain open and functional.
Amid growing anxiety among citizens that the June 7 protest could have a negative outcome, the political leader of the Alternative National Congress, Alexander Cummings, has asked participants to remain peaceful and avoid provocations.
Concurring with their colleagues across the country, citizens in Gbarpolu have recommended a change in the current electoral date and a reduction in the tenures of elected public officials.
As the June 7 protest draws closer, many Liberians are making their decision about whether or not they will attend the protest that has a stated goal of pushing the George Weah government to improve its governance and the economic conditions of the country.
After several meetings with stakeholders, it is now clear that members of the pending mass citizens’ assembly will gather on Capitol Hill to the present their petition to the government on June 7.
