With the anticipated June 7th protest against the depleting economic situation in the country drawing nearer, business owners and concerned citizens are unsure what the next weekend will bring. And so, this is your opportunity to enjoy what the city has to offer until the uncertainty in the political environment calms, and things can return to business as usual. Continue below for a full guide to your pro-poor weekend in Monrovia, so eraytin can compress.
