“January 6 Protest Ended Abruptly Without Reasonable Audible Warning From Government” Says International Community, As They Speaks On Liberia’s National Discourse In The New Year

36
1926

At the dawn of a new decade, we share with all stakeholders a hope for Liberia’s promising future.

The new year will afford opportunities for substantive engagement, respectful dialogue, and reflection by those committed to improving Liberia’s economic situation and strengthening political stability.

To that end, we encourage all actors to recommit themselves to constructive consultations at the community, regional, and national level.

It is only through such engagement that challenges can be understood and that durable progress can be made. As committed international partners, we and other friends of Liberia will continue to support efforts that yield meaningful results.

Multiple recent requests by large citizen groups seeking to demonstrate in central Monrovia underscore the need for the Government of Liberia urgently to clarify a comprehensive notification or application process for large demonstrations, to include what qualifies as individual, small, or large group protests, timelines, permissible locations, restrictions on what can be brought to events, etc.

Transparent notification or application procedures for permits to hold large demonstrations, coupled with apolitical and content-neutral adjudications of said applications, can ensure that future events, which are normal and healthy in a democracy, efficiently allow protestors to gather, express grievances, and present petitions to the government.

Any restrictions on the right of peaceful assembly should be consistent with Liberia’s constitution as well as Article 21 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which states “The right of peaceful assembly shall be recognized.

No restrictions may be placed on the exercise of this right other than that imposed in conformity with the law and which are necessary in a democratic society in the interests of national security or public safety, public order, the protection of public health, or morals or the protection of the rights and freedoms of others.”

We note with regret for all present on Capitol Hill on 6 January, that a protest ended abruptly after a day in which approximately 2,000 demonstrators had peacefully assembled and security forces had displayed commendable professionalism in executing their duties.

While it is understandable why the Liberian government would find it untenable for a large group of demonstrators to block the primary route through the government quarter endlessly, to disperse the crowd without reasonable audible warning increased the risk of harm to citizens.

It is important for individuals in all democracies to be able to exercise their freedoms of expression, petition, and peaceful assembly.

We note that, if individuals in Liberia believe that their rights have been abridged, there are possible judicial remedies accessible under Liberian law.

Review of administrative decisions by the courts can serve as an important mechanism in a democratic society to refine and clarify the interpretation of domestic laws and Constitutional rights.

Citizens should also feel that their concerns can be heard and deliberated through their elected representatives in the legislature.

The government and opposition political parties in Liberia have expressed a shared desire to build a democratic and civil society based on the rule of law and the welfare of all.

We in the international community will continue to stand by Liberian citizens, and the government as they work together to strengthen core institutions, protect universal human rights, and endeavour to create opportunities for all Liberians to provide a better life for their families and communities.

    air delivery dates as specified by the network in order to accommodate
    review by the censors. This cancellation led the Brothers to file a successful breach of contract suit against the network, although the suit failed to see the brothers or their show returned to the air.[16]
    Despite this cancellation, the show went on to win the Emmy
    Award that year for best writing. The saga of the cancellation of the show
    is the subject of a 2002 documentary film, Smothered.[17].

    Aldrich and Lazar Hayward, in exchange for Kevin Martin, Jeremy Lamb, two first round picks, and
    a second round pick.[19] Rockets general manager Daryl
    Morey called Harden a “foundational” player and expected him to be Houston’s featured player despite previously only
    playing a supporting role behind Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.[21]
    On October 31, 2012, Harden signed a contract extension with the Rockets for five years worth $80 million.[22] That
    same day, he became the first ever NBA player to score 37 or more points while registering a
    double digit assist total in his team debut, posting 37 points, a
    career high 12 assists, six rebounds, four steals and one block in a 105 96 win over the
    Detroit Pistons. He became just the fourth NBA player in the last 25
    years to post those totals in a single game and matched the third highest point
    total for any NBA player in his team debut (most for Rockets debut).

    By 1910, it was in somewhat common use for young teenage girls.
    It turns up, for instance, in discussions of clothing to refer
    to girls old enough to have developed a figure but
    young enough that they can be allowed to dress in women garments yet the Theatre Magazine put it, in August, 1915, “And it is no easy matter this finding of suitable wearing apparel for a miss of tender years but developed growth. One is so apt to swing a trifle the wrong way.” Today, many
    girls have the same problem: they don fit into clothing in the Juniors

Scepter met this with a countersuit for quitting; both suits were withdrawn in 1965, after an agreement was reached.[15] Knowing that Scepter had lied about the trust disappointed the Shirelles, who felt deceived.

  6. This design is spectacular! You certainly know
    how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your
    videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never
