NO TO HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE IN SOUTHERN CAMEROONS (AMBAZONIA)
It all started in October 2016 when Layers and Teachers took to the streets for a peaceful demonstration to air their views and frustration about the government of Cameroon for asking for equal opportunities in their homeland (Ambazonia) and as we speak today it resulted in people being locked up in Prison and Cells.
After the peaceful demonstration that resulted in people being locked up in prisons life has become so so frustrated. This frustration has resulted to thousands upon thousands of lives lost, villages have been burnt, houses burnt by the military of French Cameroon and for three years now and more our parents, brothers and sisters have been suffering from this barbaric crack down between the military force of French Cameroon and the Ambazonia force, approximately 40000 plus civilians have lost their lives, 60000 plus civilians are either living in the bushes or seeking refuge in neighboring Nigeria.
The continue unrest resulting in youths running into the bushes for their life meanwhile as young as there are, are meant to be in school for studies so as to hope for a better future but those same schools are either being burnt down or used as a military base by the French Cameroon force. Young people don’t even have the opportunity to contribute to the society with no job opportunities, no peace. The few brave once are being accused as being terrorist in their own homeland. They is a continues repression by the arm military and this situation has now resulted into an arm conflicts. Young men and women have now pick up weapons to defend themselves and their family members. An estimated 10000 plus men and women have been killed in this senseless war in southern Cameroon by the French Cameroon military.
As frustrating as it is in Cameroon now many children have not only been made homeless but have also been made Orphans as many children have lost them life and some have been displaced from their relative as there struggle to look for safety.
Many villages have been burnt to arches in southern Cameroon by the La Republic Arm Forces and many more properties destroyed.
Southern Cameroonians all over the world in the diaspora have been playing a vital role in connection to the Anglophone Crises with a good number of demonstrations that have been carried out in various parts/countries of the world by disgruntled southern Cameroonians. All this because we fear for our family members back home are subject to gross human right violation from the French Cameroon Government. Another means or methods being used is via the social media to spread the message to the international community to see what is going on in Southern Cameroon. Pictures and videos of the brutal regime of President Pau Biya of French Cameroon have been shared on social media to show the extend at which the southern Cameroonians are being tortured, killed, rape by the military of French Cameroon.
As a result of the activities of southern Cameroonians in the diaspora, many southern Cameroonians coming from the diaspora are being arrested at the port of entry in Cameroon and being accused of supporting or sponsoring the armed separatist and spreading secessionist ideas. This has put so much fear in us southern Cameroonians so much so that we fear for our life that returning home is not a safe place to go YOUR OWN HOME COUNTRY. A situation whereby going home for family issues or holiday is out of place.
