The Council of Patriots (organizers of the June 7 protest), are relying this legal instrument on to organize Liberians to demonstrate their discontentment with the current governance system through a peaceful protest and present their petition to the government. “Any prolonged political disagreement in Liberia will undermine peace, as well as worsen the prospects for improved socioeconomic development,” they added. Acknowledging the situation, United States Ambassador Christine Elder called on President George Weah to take steps to curtail those challenges. They commended the UN Country Team’s coordinated support to Liberia, as well as the strong partnership between the UN, the AU and ECOWAS, particularly on conflict prevention and good offices. The Heads of Mission then called on the international community to continue its support to Liberia to further enhance peace consolidation and sustainable development.
