For almost 26 hours I have been detained at the Accra Regional Police HQ, a time spent making new friends.

I am more convinced than ever before that a better society awaits us; all we have to do is to dismantle the systems preventing us from building it.

We are aware that to dismantle this rotten system we will be fought and persecuted, but we are strengthened in our conviction for a new and better society for all. They may imprison our bodies, but they cannot imprison our conviction for a better society.

This is a Fight rooted in love. I, therefore, have no bitterness in me. We are fighting against a system that has its knee on our necks; we are fighting against a system that is choking us – we can’t breathe.

Our nation will rise again, and nothing can stop it. The flower of its Youth shall no longer be afraid, we will blossom with courage and conviction.
