It’s been close to two years today that Southern Cameroons is experiencing the greatest form of sadistic murders and gross human rights violations where mass slaughter, torture, rape, arbitrary arrest of innocent civilians and burning of villages by the brutal Cameroon government forces have become institutionalized.
What shocks me most is the magnitude of silence by the UN in particular and International Community as a whole.
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter”. Martin Luther King,Jr
It is devastating, frustrating and painful just to imagine how the International community has remained silent to the mass murder in Southern Cameroons.
My interpretation of this silence:
*Silence is a form of emotional abuse employed on Southern Cameroonians (Ambazonians) by UN and International Community.
*Their silence is designed as a great weapon to empower the Biya’s regime in their genocidal acts on Southern Cameroons. It is more or less an act of intimidation on Southern Cameroons and empowerment to the Republic of Cameroon.
*Silence to the Anglophone crisis and showing solidarity to similar situations in other countries tells us Southern Cameroonians are an inferior people and our lives do not matter.
*Silence goes a long way to showcase that the UN/International Community value their relationship with French Cameroon over Southern Cameroons.
*Silence means denial.
As the days lace by the situation becomes more frightful leaving Southern Cameroonians with a mix feeling hoping and wandering when they will see light at the end of this darkest tunnel of their revolution.
International Community and UN you can do it.You have gone to sleep for too long.Wake up and condemn the war crimes perpetuated on Southern Cameroonians by the barbican Biya’s forces.it is your responsibility to protect and stamp out genocide in Southern Cameroons.
It is absolutely disgraceful that the International Community,UN and the world at large have turned their backs to such flagrant violation of human rights in Southern Cameroons. Your silence speaks volumes. Being mute or neutral in situations of justice tells us you have indirectly taken sides with the oppressor.
If the International Community/UN implement justice in both the English and French Cameroons there will be peace and there can be no peace without justice.
