New Chamber protest: Ernesto Yeboah arrested for disrupting Parliament

Convenor of the Economic Fighters League, Ernesto Yeboah and two others are currently in custody at the Parliamentary Protection Unit after being arrested during picketing over plans to construct a new Parliament complex.

This follows a breach in security in the Chamber of Parliament when the three in the middle of deliberations in the House begun shouting ‘drop that chamber’ attracting the attention of MPs.

They were subsequently arrested by officers of the parliamentary security unit.

Economic Fighters League picketing in Parliament was a precursor to the planned demonstration on July 13 against the project in collaboration with #DropThatChamber Campaign.

Critics of the development say Parliament’s priorities are misplaced given the standard of living in Ghana.
