The ‘Hands Off Our Hotels Demonstration’ is underway, with protesters moving from the Labadi Beach Hotel to the Christ the King Catholic Church, expressing their opposition to the disputed sale of hotels owned by the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) to Rock City Hotel, a company owned by the Minister of Food and Agriculture, Bryan Acheampong.

The objective protest is to pressure the government to intervene and stop the sale of the hotels.
