Barker-Vormawor lists losses as #FixTheCountry movement convenor –

Convenor of the #FixTheCountry and #OccupyJulorbiHouse movements, Oliver Barker-Vormawor, has shared the personal sacrifices and challenges he encountered during his advocacy for the past three years.

He made this known after declaring his intention to take a step back from the forefront of the movements in a post on X.

“For the past three years, I have given so much of my life and time to mobilize and support the efforts of FixTheCountry and now #OccupyJulorbiHouse movements,” Barker-Vormwor stated in his tweet, shedding light on the profound commitment he has shown to these causes.

According to Mr Barker-Vormawor, he has had his passport seized, a travel ban imposed on him, facing a treason trial, enduring five arrests, and spending time in jail on three separate occasions due to the role he played in the movements.

“I have been separated from family; spent my life savings to support the movement financially and logistically. I believe that I have served my country all too well,” he remarked, reflecting on the sacrifices made in the pursuit of social justice,” he added.

Highlighting the necessity for a transition, Barker-Vormawor emphasized the importance of new faces, new individuals, and new energy to assume leadership roles in the FixTheCountry movement.

“Now I think it is time for others to step unto the plate and carry the people’s movement forward. FixTheCountry needs new faces; new people and new energy. This is the time we usher in a proper transition, for the movement to renew itself,” he declared.

His dream is for “a new politics where empathy leads and social justice is routine and must endure.”
