Pressure group, Occupy Ghana has asked Ghanaians to wear any red attire on Friday, May 1, 2015, in solidarity with all hardworking Ghanaians workers as they protest for better living and economic condition.

Speaking to the media in Accra, a leading member of the pressure group, Sydney Casely Hayford stated that, “almost every formal and informal work from farmers, dressmakers, drivers, truck pushers, hawkers, nurses, teachers and all white collar workers have had to battle with the dire economic conditions and live a decent life’’.

According to the group, life has become unbearable for Ghanaians and it is time they sent a strong signal to government that the Ghanaian worker is suffering. This they believe will influence the Mahama led administration to put in place practical measures to salvage the situation.

Mr. Casely Hayford has therefore asked all who wish for a better management of the economy to join the protest.

“On May Day, Friday the 1st, Organised Labour is calling on all Ghanaians especially workers to wear a touch of red in solidarity with all hardworking Ghanaians workers as the protest for better living and economic condition. We ask you to wear red if you believe the government must reduce fuel prices now. Wear red if you believe the government must fix ‘dumsor’ now, wear red if you believe our pension funds must be better managed. Wear red if you believe the Ghanaian workers deserves better’’, he entreated.

Occupy Ghana has on a number of occasions protested the, ‘’worsening economic conditions in the country’’.
