Activists say to protest, not march

The civil society groups say that there will be a protest, not a march, on Monday.

Chairman of the PNG Anti-Corruption Movement for Change Lucas Kiap told Loop PNG that the arrangement will be for a protest gathering to be held at the Unagi oval in Port Moresby.

A letter was given to the metropolitan police commander’s office today (Thursday) requesting for police presence and clearance for the event.

Kiap says that supporters are asked to arrive by 9am and take up position at the Unagi oval area.

Meantime, NCD metropolitan police Commander Ben Turi is yet to officially approve the protest gathering.

For now, Kiap says people must stand united to force the government to be accountable.
