LIBERIANS ARE MORE DANGEROUS THAN FEAR, WILL NOT BOW TO FEAR TACTICS – CPP WARNS CDC GOVERNMENT

Date:

LIBERIA – The opposition Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), says it will not bow to fear tactics being carried out by the CDC Government to stop the planned December 17 ‘WeTiyah’ Rally.

Recently, the Chairman of Team Alexander B, Cummings Campaign, Lewis G, Brown announced the holding of a peaceful rally to call the attention of the CDC Government to the suffering of the Liberian masses.

But a spokesman of the CDC Government, Monrovia City Mayor Jefferson Koijee said the government will not allow the rally to be held.

Koijee said Liberia will not be allowed to go down in chaos, pointing out that Ambassador Lewis Brown has a history of violence.

In the midst of the confusion, another supporter of Team Cummings, George Wisner has warned of consequences if the government fails to adhere to the rights of the masses to peacefully assemble.

Speaking on a local radio yesterday, he said there will be another catastrophic mistake by the Government of Liberia if it dares try to prevent the peaceful assembly of the Liberian people on December 17, 2022.

According to Mr George Wisner, the Liberian masses are more dangerous than fear and threat being instilled by the government to prevent the people’s assembly but said fear will not suffice.

It appears that the threat of Mayor Koijee to halt activities of the December 17 rally has started to unfold when pro-government thugs last night mopped Mr. Lewis Brown during a live radio program on the Capitol By-pass.

Police had to be called in to rescue the former Liberian ambassador to the United Nations when the thugs allegedly attempted to lynch the Liberian politician.

Though there has not been evidence of Koijee being the mastermind of the mob action, some opposition figures have started pointing accusing fingers at him.

But on a separate radio show early on Monday, George Wisner warned the Government of Liberia to stop spreading fear.

He intimated that the suffering Liberian people are more dangerous than the mere threats, intimidation, and fear the government continued to issue.

“This December 17 rally, will not be a picture of Soweto. What I see happening, there will be another catastrophic mistake on the part of this government if they try to prevent the people from expressing themselves. Mark my words on this day. I believe these police officers who the government itself has abused are on the side of the people. Let the government try it, it will be the day the government will see that police officer will try to wave the white flag,” according to Wisner who is a member of Team Cummings.

Wisner indicated that the CDC Government has lost the will to stand in the way of the Liberian people, adding that the rally is not for the CPP but they are providing the platform.

He maintained that the December 17 rally will not be catastrophic if the government which has the responsibility to provide security to protect its citizens fails to prevent the catastrophe.

“The CPP and the Liberian people are more dangerous than fear. You can’t frighten us with fear.  Let Major Jefferson Koijee and others try the resolve of the Liberian people, I dare them. I dare this government to do something contrary. The people have the right to express themselves. The risk will be by preventing the people from doing so,” Wisner retorted in response to a question from the host of the radio show.

He added that the matter is not about giving and receiving receipts, but the Liberian people have decided to approach their government responsibly through the CPP and they have followed all of the processes the government has agreed that the Liberian people can assemble in public space.

Mr. Wisher said they are not going to the stadium nor the VIP, but will assemble in front and outside of the stadium because they have made payment and informed the government of Liberia to provide security protection.

“Minister Zeogar Wilson is very economical on this issue. This government is twisting the Minister’s arm because his office was excited when we made the payment.  However, I want to say to them, nothing can stop this from happening on December 17 at the stadium. Comes thunder, or rain, we will gather for the Liberian people to speak to this government that enough is enough and if you cannot do what you were elected, then shift and leave,” he concluded.
