Kumasi: Movie industry players to hold ‘Dumsor’ #3sumaduruy3n protest


Members of the Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG) are set to embark on an “apolitical” demonstration against Ghana’s crippling power crisis.

The FIPAG event is scheduled for Thursday May 28th 2015 in Kumasi and is expected to attract all the players in Ghana’s film industry; actors, directors,scriptwriters, editors, producers, makeup artists, sound track singers & producers, acting guilds members, retailers, marketers, distributors among others.

The protest march dubbed #3sumaduruy3n, meaning ‘darkness has befallen us’ follows actress Yvonne Nelson’s successful #dumsormuststop vigil which came off on Saturday May 16th.

FIPAG said their decision is informed by the adverse effect the inconsistent power supply is having on the movie industry.

“…Lovers of Ghanaian movies are all cordially invited to join hands with us to show our disgust at the energy situation and its crippling effects on the film industry. It’s all in the interest of mother Ghana,” a press statement issued and signed by the Public Relations officer of FIPAG, Michael Kwaku Ola, has stated.

“We shall not allow any political party's paraphernalia or sentiments. This is totally non-partisan. We are fighting for our industry which is on its knees”.
