Bulldozer Destruction of the Center for National Art and Culture in Accra

On Sunday, September 14, nearly half of the slum behind the Arts Center was hit flat by big bulldozers. A few days earlier, the mayor of the city came by and ordered the residents to stop working in the art workshops and leave their homes. Of course, the local residents did not know how to react to this and where they should go. The city has meanwhile less and less good building land and this property is to be sold to companies, that means the people have to go there. Where does all the time matter, no one is interested in the arrangement masters. Most of the houses were marked with a red „X“ and sprayed with slogans like „Move out“ or „Stop working“. Most of the people in the adjoining shacks worked in the art shops, produced parts for sale, or otherwise associated with the arts community, but on the whole, it became a hub for a large number of people from all directions. However, most of them have lived in this slum for over 20 years.
