The appeal was launched by the activist Gangsta and has been mobilizing several personalities who guarantee, through their pages on social networks, that they will join the protest.
Among these are musicians such as Paulo Flores, the businesswoman, former MPLA deputy and daughter of former president Tchizé dos Santos, activists such as Laurinda Gouveia and Dito Dali, who were part of the "15+2", convicted of preparatory acts of rebellion , or UNITA militants like Ginga Savimbi, daughter of the founder of Angola's largest party, Jonas Savimbi, or deputy Adriano Sapinala, from the same party.
"Join the movement, stay at home on the 31st", says the well-known artist Paulo Flores, asking: "Nobody leaves the house, nobody leaves the kubico".
"I listened to Paulo's advice and joined the strike on the 31st of March because the strike is a constitutional right for all Angolans. On the 31st I'm going to stay at home and everything I do related to Angola will stop", guarantees businesswoman Tchizé dos Santos, stressing that he will close his restaurant.
Laura Macedo, a member of civil society, underlines on her Facebook page that the demonstration that is being called under the slogan #31_03_2023_fica_em_casa is one of the ways in which Angolans will not be "assaulted by the forces commanded by the Guardians of the Dictatorship". "The Police and their Dogs won't be able to snap us up," she wrote.
"Good morning Angola, on the 31st the password is to stay at home", wrote deputy Adriano Sapiñala on his Facebook page.
The Gangsta activist, who is in an uncertain location, has been calling on various social classes, including artists, doctors, teachers and taxi drivers, to mobilize and join the silent "Stay at Home" protest.
Spread across WhatsApp groups and social networks, there are also appeals to the contrary such as "I'm going to bumbar (work) on the 31st" or "Say yes to work".
