Metamorphosis…As SFG Renamed Socialist Movement of Ghana(SMG) at its Maiden Congress

The Socialist Forum Ghana, at its maiden Congress in Winneba on Saturday 31st July 2021, unanimously adopted a new name Socialist Movement of Ghana (SMG).

The change of name according to the Convener, Comrade Kyeretwie Opoku is to enable them expand as a group and intensify their socialistic activism.

He revealed that the SMG currently has about 29 collectives (branches) that actively participate in solidarity activities including solidarity for Cuba, Palestine Venezuela and North Korea, among others.

He added that, in Ghana, the collectives have taken part in social media activism including Ghana’s day of shame on 24th February 2020, the protection of Ada lagoon against selfish people among others.

“ There was massive health walk in Winneba where the collectives clandestinely used it to recruit members”, Mr. Kyeretwie said.

On his part the General Secretary of SMG, Comrade Kwesi Pratt took a swipe at the Akuffo-Addo government for providing a legal frame work for the establishment of a US military base in Ghana.

“Early this year, the US military carried out military exercises in Ghana and thereby jeopardized the security situation in the country”, he added.
