Wednesday’s protest against the rising cost of living in Ghana has been peaceful, unlike Tuesday’s, when clashes with police erupted and 29 people were arrested. A senior member of the local “Arise Ghana” lobby group that organized the protest, Sammy Gyamfi, told Reuters that police agreed to provide security for demonstrations on the second day on the condition that they conduct themselves peacefully. Hundreds had taken to the streets to denounce price hikes, a tax on electronic payments and other levies amid an economic downturn.
