I am surprised that these guys could not produce a more presentable protest placard. I can hardly read coherently what is written on it.

Does it show the incompetency of the SCNC? I will not bother to read such a thing if I was emerging from 10 downing street!

SCNC France sets Biya’s Secret Home ablaze

The Southern Cameroons struggle in the Diaspora remains one of Yaoundé's greatest challenging headaches more so as it portrays her ugly image to the controversial international community. This warning signal came from SCNC following a declared national mourning in commemoration of May 20th, a day Southern Cameroonians were sold into slavery 35 years ago.

Members and sympathizers of the SCNC France came out in their numbers carrying placards denouncing La République's illegal occupation of the Southern Cameroons territory such that, all roads leading to the Cameroun Embassy and its neighborhood in Paris in the early hours of May 20th 2007 where all crowded. Messages such as "20th May 1972 -- 20th May 2007 amounts to 35 long years of enslavement of Southern Cameroons by La République du Cameroun United with la République we perish, Divided we stand were just a few of the different messages floating through the streets in Paris.

The curtain-raiser of the day was a minute of silence in honour of martyrs of freedom and those still languishing in the different torture centers in the name of detention in La République du Cameroun. After a word of prayers led by Mrs. Achu Mary Susan, the Chairman, Mr. Vasco Akong made a speech calling on members to remain firm and committed to the struggle. Concluding he said,’ freedom was just around the corner.' Other important speeches came from the vice Chairman in the person of Mr .Ewubeakem Ojong and Mr. Prizo Agbor, all determined in one voice to see light at the end of the tunnel.

Mr. Biya,s spy agents, notably the CPDM president for France, Mr Ekani Ernest was present at the mourning ground amongst others. Consciously or unconsciously, these bootlickers are identifying themselves with the Anglophone's struggles. Who says a breakthrough is not underway? The liberty songs filtered into their ears and sending cold waves down their spines. Yaoundé was therefore well represented per se.

The Yaoundé regime must have been reliably informed by Mr Ernest Ekani and his cohorts that spending holidays in France may take a different outlook as from this moment. Strategies are taking a different dimension and the struggle remains non negotiable. It's time watchdogs climb down the fence. Self determination is a right and not a privilege.

The more than two(2) hours of protest march saw members all dressed in the freedom T-shirts brandishing placards very colorfully and portraying President Paul Biya as falling to rise no more. The occasion was crowned with refreshments at the two symbolic Anglophone Restaurants at the Paris 18th District.

mk the southerner

Thank you very much SCNC Britain for the protest.At least the British Government should know by now that we are not articles of trade. For what they did in 1961 has proven to be a time bomb.

A stitch in time saves nine. U N O preaches preventive diplomacy,it is such a pity that his is not put into practice.I am afraid if the UNO continue like this they will not be different from the toothless bull dog of the defunct league of nations. And the human race will need another world war again to come up with another organization.

I'm not saying no to your views but I guess we have all seen and we are still weaknessing that this world is full of needs and what the various nations of the world are doing is just to secure their need satisfaction.

There is no need crying for the western world to come back to Cameroon.Besides they won't come ,Why ? because we have nothing to offer .there is an issue now going on.and the way I see it ,separation is no encouraged in any way.So I hereby saying that the issue of disintegration is not going to happened in this world of today.They are protesting in Britain, that same Britain who decided to join our Souther Cameroon Administration with that of Nigeria because they did not want to spend money setting up a separate administration for us ? They left Cameroon without a footprint in any aspect that may be seen as being positive .By inviting them,we are inviting more trouble ,Afterall we were initially one but for their imperialist ideas.SCNC lets look for another way out .Separation is just the begining and not the end .Those who belief in divorce shall keep divorcing no matter how sweet the marriage home is or hand been.

This strike action in the UK and France has given a face-lift to the Southern Cameroons struggle.Reports says there were similar marches in some other parts of the world like USA,Canada,Australia,Hong Kong,Indonesia,and Philippines.However,most of the protest marches were concentrated around the Embassy viccinities,except for the ones in Britian(which took place at Tony's compound)and that in France,where Pa Bi Mvondo's secret lodge was set ablaze.

The stronghold of the SCNC is no doubt Kumba,and the hoisting of the flag on 20th of May in Fiango quarters,show some signs of courageousness and steadfastness in their fight,mostly in their fiefdom.Also,it proved they have become more bold and vocal in their demands.Some of them only claim sessession from the La Republique while others harshly criticise a quick independence and sovereignty for the Southern Cameroons.Their pleas and demands can possibly be achieved eventhough it is still full of insecurities and uncertainties.

Overstating the strength of the SCNC will not be appropriate,since no one is ready to die,or pay a political price,but they want independence.Mandela reminded us that he came from a country where 'everyone must be a prisoner before becoming the president'.This means people must fight for their rights and self-governance,even if it means to split your blood for that just cause.It is not just a piece of cake,they must have a carefully crafted strategy,to win the battle,else their long fought battle will be a futile and naked aggression,to the La Republique junta and to human right groups and organisations the world over.It will take only the entire anglophone community and country men together to win this battle;minds,spirit,devotion,sacrifice,determination put together.

People don't be fooled.

All these so-called SCNC protesters are asylum-seeking free riders. They are in reality economic migrants exploiting the Southern Cameroon issue to gain right of stay in the developed world. Of course they must organise protests like these to send pictures to the Immigration authorities so as to gain or maintain asylum status.

Let me ask them just one simple question and if they answer then I rest my case.

They say they are abroad (mostly as asylum seekers) because the political situation in their country is intolerable. If today the Southern Cameroons is granted independence and their political grievance is solved, would they then hop on the next plane to resettle permanently in that territory since the threat of persecution would then have been removed? Let them answer me this.

SCNC a cry over spilled milk.
Here is SCNC crying for the West who came conquered and divides Africa to come back and do it again??
What a shame????
When will African ever get up from their slumber and take responsibilities by themselves.
Are we not matured enough to start reasoning????
Should we condone the base of colonization as really the foundation of modern day Africa? Ironically that is the reality in the world today. Are we going to remain slaves forever??
"By violating the international boundary established by colonial treaties, the foundation of modern African nation states" this statement is tantamount to submitting yourself to colonial master vis-à-vis slave master relationship. Such a relationship that is been modifying by the west to suit the change in time.
When such treaties were being established how many African states were signatories to them. Was there a Southern Cameroon state who took part in such a treaty?? .
Why do you think you can use colonial treaties which established present day African state as a means to destabilize it?
Do you really know the terms of this treaty?? .
Do you think the Europeans are foolish enough to expose any of their treaties between them to any third party not to talk of their slaves?
A violation of such a treaty is treated as espionage to the first degree I belief and that’s enough to set the European nations into a war or send the person responsible to his early grave.
I have stated here again and again that the colonial states of Africa were born under the principle of slavery and slave trade, which reduced the normal African man below the level of animals needs.
What I belief African should start denouncing is this seeds of evil(slavery) which has now mutates it selves into colonization and neo-colonization and now showing it most ugly face in the form of globalization. Those colonies and present day African states are as wrong and are the same as the periods of slavery. At the time when slavery was at it worst form a slave cannot pay a visit to it parent without permission from the master. Look at today what happen to the bakassi peninsular?
It was only the master who can tell Nigeria how far he can place its legs around its surrounding.
UN are the working laws that is helping the west to keep to its treaty
Wake up Africa…………………………………

Hmm,
Where is Rexon in the picture?He hides behind his key board,and keep proclaiming independence.This march to No.10 was planned a longtime ago,but they wait for Tony Blair to be at the verge of living office,and scribble some invisible things on a paper calling for independence.Tony Blair has been in power for 10 years ,and was initially said to be a pragmatist,yet the SCNC went about their asylum seeking,and have just got out of their slumber.The simple fact that Tony Blair was absent gives a clair message,
that you cannot only feed the chicken ,the day of the market.
We have seen that in France everything ended with item 11 in a Paris restaurants.
That is what the French have taught them,that when you take a walk for thirty minutes ,you sit down for some Cognac.

Priest Blasts "National Unity" Proponents
By Chris Mbunwe

A Catholic priest on Sunday, May 20, in his sermon, lambasted those whom he says propound national unity without examining the realities on the ground.

At all Saints Parish Bayelle, Nkwen, Bamenda Archdiocese, Rev. Fr. Bonaventure Ndong, assisted by the Parish Priest, Rev. George Ngalim, held Christians spellbound with an incisive sermon.

Reflecting on the triple celebrations of May 20, as Cameroon's National Day, World Day of Communication and the Mary Queen of Apostles and Special Patroness of Cameroon, Fr. Ndong appealed to Christians to re-examine their lives in relation to the celebrations.

"My opinion is that we are celebrating half of national unity if we have to call it that way. Reasons being that from pictures shown on CRTV screen Yesterday, May 19, those who watched and saw what I saw, must have seen "kalabut" (plank) houses in one part of the country living in abject poverty and pictures of sky-scrappers in another part of Cameroon, showing others living in affluence.

How can we talk about national unity without love and equitable justice? How can we talk about national unity when all is not going well in all facets of life? How can we talk about national unity when English-speaking Cameroonians or French-speaking Cameroonians do not feel comfortable where they are?" Fr. Ndong asked.

He said after the so-called Foumban Conference, Cameroon, through the handiwork of President Amadou Ahidjo, was declared a United Republic and 1972 and that in 1984, Paul Biya, without any explanation, changed the name of this country to the Republic of Cameroon.

"This is why I said we are celebrating half unity today," Fr. Ndong remarked.He blamed the woes of the nation on Cameroonians whom he described as docile. He said it was difficult to call any average Cameroonian to reason whenever he/she is called to stand against injustice, corruption, embezzlement and other ills, reason being that Cameroonians have enough to eat and drink.

Hear him: "ask a Cameroonian what can be done concretely to redress the present mess in which we find ourselves, he will look for food and after he has eaten and gulped a bottle of alcohol, he will belch and quickly suggest that the topic be postponed for discussion some other day. And that is how we have remained marking time on the same spot for 35 years.

This day to me could have been a day for national mourning" lamented the Rev. Father.
Talking about the absence of brotherly or Christian love between Anglophones and Francophones, Fr. Ndong said the two peoples do not feel comfortable where they find themselves.

According to him, superiority and inferiority complexes and hatred come into play."Let's come back home. Why should we keep on killing and destroying each other's property? Are those fighting in Oku-Mbessa Francophones?" the man of God wondered.He said such acts clearly demonstrate that Christian values have been ignored by the same people who stand on roof tops propounding national unity.

Fr. Ndong also told Christians that if there is any church in Cameroon that can pride itself of contributing enormously towards the peace that reigns today, it is the Catholic Church.
"This country has experienced peace which no one person, group or political party can lay claim to.

It is the intercession of Mary, Queen of Apostles as Special Patroness of Cameroon that has kept us as peaceful. To Her, we owe due respect and honour," said Fr. Ndong.

As soon as the independence of the Southern Cameroons is granted I for one, and many others will take the NEXT AVAILABLE flight home.

Watesih

I might be wrong but I want to think your take on the SCNC is no longer objective. I feel you are now trying to follow the law of Moses- An eye for an eye... You now seem to see many things wrong with the SCNC and this might be as a result of Rexon's take on the SDF. I am judging from your last comment.
If really the SCNC is “our thing” as we have been saying here, then we must not criticize with bias because we feel some SCNC members are attacking the SDF.
I think the guys who went out to stage the protest marches should be credited for what they did. I disagree with you when you say Tony Blairs's absence gives a clear message.
I rather think the protest around the world was a good thing for the SCNC and the Southern Cameroon struggle. I would rather say the protests have sent a clear message to the world leaders. At least this can be the beginning of greater things for the Southern Cameroon Liberation Struggle.

Shalom

Klemenceau

Watesih

Klemenceau,
Up to this moment i have allowed you to continue to play your new role of moralist,but i`m afraid i`m running out of patience,and will ask you to see things your own way.Even if i were to follow Rexon's example,and ask the SCNC to deliver the goods rather than waiting for every 20th May ,and October 1st to come out ,and march what will be bad in that.What clear message are you referring to that has been sent to world leaders.I hope you remember the interview of the National Secretary of SCYL,where he narrated his contacts with some world leaders,who told him without mincing words that we should take the bulls by the horns ,before coming out to complain.
We definitely look at things in different ways.You can be estatic because guys went out ,and marched,but i may think that a body that is 12 years old cannot continue to march every year.You did not surely get point on Tony`s Blairs absence clearly.I said it sent out a clear message that you cannot wait when the PM is at the verge of retirement then you want to attract any sympathy from him.Klemenceau has he not been there for 10 years? Was this the first 20th May celebrated with Tony Blair as President?
You cannot dissociate the actions of those you say criticise the SDF from their inability to deliver anything in the SCNC.
The energy with which they scrutinise the SDF,must be seen in the way they handle issues in the SCNC.Klemenceau ,if you are Rexon's new spokesman on this forum,or that of the SCNC,tell your masters that we demand action in the war front ,not infront of embassies abroad every 20th May.You may wonder why i brand you Rexon's spokesperson,but remember you said here that since your discussion with him,you now know what he stands for,and this has meant you have to intercede for him time and again.

Good move there from the SCNC.We need to encourage and be supportive of all these moves.However, a change in leadership will render the movement more vibrant and proactive.Elsewhere,did someone see the image of this internet lion call Rexon on any of the photos displayed above? Empty noise makers.

Klemanceau,
Do not blame Watersih.Rexon is the cause of all this SDF-SCNC saga here on the forum.He would like to see the SDF destroyed.This has turned many away from the genuine struggle to liberate the Southern Cameroons.Rexon behaves as if he owns the Southern Cameroons or he is more SOUTHERN Cameroonian than others.The question here is wether his approach to this issue is helping the struggle.I am saying this because this guy has reduced this struggle into an SDF-SCNC palaver.Your bullet should be directed at him.

Two words: Asylum seekers! Sad but true! I was talking to a mate locked up in one of those repatriation camps. He told me all the Cameroonians ‘locked’ in there under review are claiming to be SCNC refugees. And as he told me, unfortunately for them Cameroon is listed as one of the ‘SAFE’ countries. True story.

Fon

Watesih,
The SCNC is not Rexon. My advice is that for any move of the SCNC that you see wanting, do not attack but you will score a goal if you simply suggest what could have been done that is better.
If you launch a personal attack on Rexon, no qualms, but any attack on the SCNC will be an error.

Protest marches organised around the world, although far from the goal of independence, are quite significant because they keep reminding Biya that there is a problem. Subsequently, he became wary in any action he takes because he knows any gross abuse of Anglophones can spark fire.

Ma Mary

Watesih, it appears as if you are not experienced in the dynamics of demonstrations. If you were, you would understand why it does not matter in this specific case whether or not Tony Blair was at home or not.

On the matter of asylum, ALL Southern Cameroonians are deserving of asylum anywhere on the planet. ALL Southern Cameroonians are in potential danger of genocide, including the bootlickers and tokens. The Beti kleptocracy has armed their irregulars to the teeth and ready to behave like their kith and kin in Rwanda and Burundi.

Obviously, Rexon is getting under your skin, because you are lashing out in a way that is out of proportion and in the process shooting yourself in the foot. If you are indeed a Southern Cameroonian, we could use some positive contributions and suggestions to those who have taken the trouble to demonstrate.

Watesih

As you rightly said everyone has their opinion. I was merely giving my opinion and I rightly said I might be wrong. It is my way of contributing to the comments here and to what is happening in our country. I can’t be a moralist because I believe I am wanting in one way or the other. But I am striving every day to be better.
Watesih I am no one’s spokesperson but I am trying to speak for my country. Let’s put our heads together and see how we can together come out of the pit Biya and his Ewondo clan has put us into. The only way we can come out of this pit is by uniting rather than dividing. We will have a fat or no chance at all to overcome Biya if we continue with the antagonism.

Have a greet weekend my brother

Shalom

Mr Brown,
What do you mean by I am a dictator.If you have any credible claims bring them forth.Can you expantiate your claim.Are you saying the demands of the protesters are not genuine or you are saying my proposal is too harsh for the Biya regime to withstand?Biya is aware of these periodic purges from the Anglophones and he has a plan for it.Be it virtuous or vicious.

Rexon,
Your absence in the picture has sparked world concern.Would you please explain the reason for your absenteeism in the protest march recently.I guess you were trying to organise some other marches out of this one.Maybe you were in the nearby bush as some might be thinking.Definately taking you for a forum 'noisemaker' and 'an internet lion' as knganjo puts it.Many are eager to know your capacity to bring a vital change in the SCNC struggle,and those SCNC dreams of a free independent state to come true.

Pikin,
Only those without conscience will have the guts to say the minds of the Anglophones and Southern Cameroonians are at ease,because they want seeking asylum.A handful of Asylum seekers from the Southern Cameroon lay claims to their just cause and in most cases are being granted documents.There is a growing pressure on Biya to address the Southern Cameroon problem and bring a more drastic change in the treatment of the Anglophones.The Anglophones minority and inferiority complex has been a major setback to foster dynamic change and freedom for the people as a whole.

On both ends of the political spectrum,majority of the Anglophones are satisfied with this reminder of the fronline operation from the SCNC activities and to an extend the SDF who is fighting from within as they claims.However,it is an added advantage especially to the expartriates and those of the diaspora,who take this as an eye-opener in exposing the ills of the power that be.We should first of all generally accept Southern Cameroon's vulnerability,maginalisation,exploitation and human right abuse at home, before we can find means to redress it.Frankly speaking Cameroon will see no peace or domestic tranquility until this issue of the abuse of minority right is tabled.

It is funny, must i be in the picture, must all those who were in the protest be on the photo or must i be in the protest march in London? The UK has four capitals, London, Edinburg, Cardiff and Belfast. There were lots of protest marches all over the place and i do not need to identify with any. My commitment to the Southern Cameroonian struggle should not be a publicity stunt and even if i am in London, i would not intentionally want to be in the photo to be published, except by chance. We are commited to the struggle in different ways and nobody knows who i am. Does Watesih, Knganjo, etc know me in person? My commitment to the Southern Cameroonian struggle has nothing to do with money or position. Even if everybody abandons the struggle, i will fight it alone and i am convinced, since i have not lost any battle, i will not lost this one.

Knganjo,

What can you say about the SDF call that its militants should go and march La Republiques national day while we are mourning. I understand that the SDF is always in a difficult position because of its La Republiques connections, so too are SCNC militants. We find it difficults sometimes to reconcile some actions of the SDF and it would take some time before we can fully reconcile our objectives with yours. So at this moment, we should struggle to be very pragmatic.

For all the good work i have done for the SDF in fighting electoral fraud and others even when i am not involved in elections, if the price i am being paid is to be classified as someone who wants to cause trouble between the SCNC and the SDF, then so be it. When i decided to become pragmatic because some of you said the SCNC is our thing and so is the SDF, you guys started celebrating that you have defeated the SCNC. I reminded you that you should instead be struggling to defeat the Biya regime and not the SCNC and for the moment, i would focus my energy in helping you. Despite these efforts, Watesih, Knganjo were all focused on destroying the SCNC. What other option do you guys things i was left with? Well, lets do all we can to liberate the Southern Cameroons. Even the help of our brothers and sisters in the SDF is solicited in good faith.

Cheers brothers and sisters.

Watesih ,cool down.
As a known CPDM spy it would be suicidal for Rexon to get close to any SCian gathering in the UK.Dont push the man to an early grave simply because you're fed up of his 'murderous junta today,demi-god tomorrow 'comments.We really dont need him;infact he's a wanted man wherever the SCian cause matters in the UK.

Mbu.B

This is possibly the best move our SCNC made. Sensitization is a key, especially knowing the SCNC is still budding.
Hopefully we will get one of these from the front-runners before next May 20.

Vito,

From the day i read your comments in relation to the Bali-Bawock land dispute, i did not only noticed you are a tribalist, but i noticed that you are a bigot and NW supremacist. You are surviving here simply because your tribesmen are sympatising with you due to ethnic solidarity. I am sorry for bringing this up, but i just want to butress my point. A man who spend his time calling for the entire Bawock village to be wiped out and people slaugtered is never picked up by the WAtesih's, fon, Knganjo. Is that not tribalism? Truly Vito, if i was a tribalist, then i would have been your friend, but now that i am not, i am afraid, you have no other option but to hate me. You are not even ashamed to constantly call for my extermination. Well, i look like someone who should be killed for your SDF to survive, but i do not have any problem with your existance. This forum is becoming dangerous to some of our lives. kiki attacked everywhere, same with Rexon. The Southern Cameroonians i have lived with know me in person and will never bother to listen to your call. Its a shame.

I am finding it exceedling hard to understand this notion of a la republique and an SCNC. Proponents of Cameroon splitting into two seem to have lost sight of one thing; before colonialism came and bundled Cameroon into one chaotic nation under the Germany rule, we were little nations of our own with well marked boundaries and functional governments.

We were coerced to form some kind of quasi unitary state the result of which was German Cameroon. Later this almagation of the different nations was again fractionated into two which ushered in the so called southern cameroon and la republique.

This to me is ridiculous. I am not gonna let colonialisms draw boundaries for me and force me into war. There is nothing like a Southern Cameroons or a La republique. If we are clamouring for division, then we will have to divide Cameroon into its original entities. If southern Cameroons came to be, next it will be the North west south west divide. I see a situation where we will keep a continúous state of skirmish until we annihilate each other.

Maybe every single individual in here should start cavassing for mutiny based on their tribal origins to regain their little countries that used to exist.

We should rather work as a team and accept history for history make a people rather than spreading amimosity. The only way a southern Cameroons can come to be will be to wedge a war. I dont think my brothers there is tiny hope that they will win. Even if they win, the consequences of a war are far reaching.

We have seen this happen in Nigeria with the Biafra war. What were the results? Goo seek advice from the Nigerians. We have seen the tutsis and the hutus crumble a whole nation leaving scores of human lives ravaged. We have seen what happened in eastern Europe. Nothing was every achieved but horror.

My advise is that rather than take up the gun, we mend the divide, draw a functional constitution like Canada has done rather than let war mongers plunge us into calamity! This is the only point where i can support the endeavours of the SCNC. Instead of running around hoisting flags that are pulled down and burnt the next moment. Of what end is that? Sounds to me like a bunch of people with no job to go to!

They should recant thier conniving warring endeavours and press the Biya regime to ensure an equitable share of power and the national cake for everyone within the bounds of Cameroon. Else your campaigns and wasteful propagada is an evil venture that will never be of any use to anyone.

Just so you know we're aware and watching;and keenly so too.
You were neither in Dallas nor at 10 Downing.The cause you were sent to hijack,corrupt and and kill is immortal.To imagine you could push a single SCian to lambast the SCNC is unbelievable.Enough!

Ma Mary

What warring endeavours are you referring to, eyallow? SCNC has not fired a shot and has not threatened anything, even with the occupier's brutality. If the SCNC changes its policy, it will not be a secret.

Discussions as sex are only productive when the two opposites engage. La republique francais du Cameroun has never engaged in discussions. This kind of discussion between Southern Cameroonians is tantamount to intellectual masturbation, that is unproductive pleasure.

Did you know that the SCNC called for a renegotiation of the union for a reasonable period of a decade before moving on its mandate from the signature referendum and the AAC to pursue self-determination? Where were you then? Must the Southern Cameroons cause wait for the indolent?

The demonstrations and other things that you disdain (though you do nothing) have taken the Southern Cameroons consciousness to the center in a relatively short time.

Ayellow, are you a Southern Cameroonian?

eyallow


Vito,

I hope that was noy an insidious threat. If we talk democracy, lets practice it. Freedom of speech and expression. We only learn through a variation of ideas. Else I will never believe Einstein's laws of relativity!

I love Cameroonian and i cry when it bleeds, you have to understand that but we must be objective not to scale the fence into dangerous waters!


Ma Mary,

There is no such thing as a Southern Cameroons in my vocabulary as you have asked if I am Southern Cameroonian.

I refer to myself as a Cameroonian with provenance from the North west province specifically Mankon, the very heart of the opposition party in Cameroon.

Ironically all the Cameroonians i know always introduce themselves as Cameroonians. I have never heard anyone say i am a southern Cameroonian!

Objectivity is objectivity and unfortunately it is greatly relative and grossly subjective. What u consider appropraite might be on my NEVER DO list even if it is obvious and vice versa. I strongly believe in my convictions about this thing called southern cameroons and will not let anyone bundle me into the SCNC band wagon! It has no incentive and is preposterously pointless!

Listen, how long did Mandela endure the scourge of the gallows to achieve that one goal that was endeared in his heart? No easy walk to freedom he later wrote! Those purporting a fictional boundary between a Southern Cameroons and a La Republique need to learn from the eloquence of history! How long has the SCNC existed? Already its leaders have relinquished all hope of pressing the Biya regime to formulate a policy that benefits the whole of Cameroon and want to usurp power through propagating a divisive propaganda. Anyone with the right neural constitution will view this group with a sense of fright. I will not even touch them with a 100 m long pole!

Even if they have not embarked on war, i have heard people quipped on this forum about the possibility of taking up arms. A friend of mine who is an ardent SCNC supporter is not in good terms with me because i have vehemently renounced his desire for the SCNC to wedge a war!

Martin Luther king fought for equally in the days of the civil rights movement while maintaining a one America. On the other hand, Malcolm X advocated total divison and independence from white folks. While both are dead, Martin Luther King's vision came to be.

Dear comrades,I strongly support the expression of your political vision but I would rather suggest it is more of a waterloo battle because of the irrationality in it.
Have you first of all unionised NW/SW in other cultural,religious aspects before you can think about a political union?Take a case of the CBC church.

I want us to understand something very glaring here about nation-building in Africa.We cannot form a political union between NW and SW based on European linguistic heritage which for the most part we speak pidgin than the English itself.We make ourselves redicles because retiring BLAIR does not see Cameroon as strategic.How many times did he ever call the word Cameroon?

A nation can work better between NW and Western Prov based on African cultural background.Bamendji and Santa can be reviewed for what I am trying to say.SW matches closer with the Littoral based on Sandja dressing than the NW.Take a look at the Duala and Bakweri languages,also the Mbo and Bassosi languages.Nation is about a common language or cultural background and not what our colonial masters deceived us ninety years ago.Else I would say that Cameroon between 1884-1917 is the one that we should agitate for to make our political plea more rational.

ADVICE HOTLINE
From the beginning I used to see this forum as a place to express our good visions for a better Cameroon or Southern Cameroon.
I am pretty shock to have realised after reading people's articles that,most of us don't write ideas or sence.We counter blast ourselves in a very rude manner.I can understand people's emotions.We should learn to read issues and write ideas.

The saying goes 'small minds talk about people,average minds about events and big minds about ideas'.Let us have big minds.Let us try to write very briefly and concisely so as not to bore a fellow reader.When we write,we should imagine that the world reads,and not just bufoons.Let us argue facts with theoretical,practical or current examples so that we can learn.I don't wanna mention names but there are some of us who are most regular,voluminious yet senseless in our writing.We should think about this.
Ebonylad.

Thanks for your suggestions. How do you think we can solve the NW/SW divide and create a political union between the two provinces. I am culturally very much from the two provinces and i see that divide even in my own family. I see people who dont have political opinions supporting the CPDM only because the other party is headed by someone from a tribe they dont like. And people like us who dont support the CPDM are being attacked by our own relatives simply because we are not supporting what they consider our party. There is truly a divide and we are becoming bias in our approach to everything as a result. My question is, what is the way forward?

My tentative solution: We should adopt policies that promotes cultural integration and regional equilibrium. Companies should be encouraged to employ people from different cultural heritage and that should be on a ratio basis. If they dont, we should boycott them. I for example, i dont do anything with Amity Bank. Because i found that they were mostly employing but the Banso's. i found that unrealistic and thought that the only way i can act against their tribalistic rhetoric is to avoid doing any business with them. We dont have a realistic government, otherwise we could have called for them to develop policies that promotes the integration of people from tribal minorities in other parts of the country.

eyallow and friends read this article n make sure u send ur financial contributions.Weather u like it or not when the day comes u'all would decide who to choose Southern cameroons or La Republic du Cameroun.
The case of Martin L K do not and can not be compared to what the Southern CAMEROONS patriots are advocating for.So don't go about writing things that do not fit please.

PRELIMINARY REPORT FROM 41ST SESSION OF THE AFRICAN
COMMISSION ON HUMAN AND PEOPLES’ RIGHTS, (ACHPR) IN
ACCRA, GHANA.

The 41st Session of the African Commission on Human
and peoples’ Rights (ACHPR) MEETING AT Accra is
vibrating significant signals as it enters into closed
door session this week. Stand by for a full report on
Accra from the Southern Cameroon delegation at the
meeting by the time that this ACHPR session rises
LRC’s delegation here is a high powered one, led by a
member of Government. There are other different
delegations from Southern Cameroon.
So far on the open sessions.

- Chief Oben addressed the open session on the
platform of an N.G.O stating inter alia that, dialogue
is going on between SCNC and Parliament in Cameroon.
Which SCNC did he mean? Is this a change of tactic
from what his group has earlier done so far by
attempting to misdirect the Commission and derail the
thrust of Communication 266/2003? Is he likely to make
an impact?

- What is the content of the ruling on Southern
Cameroon’s Communication 266/2003 due to be handed
down by the time that this Session rises?

- What is the content of the file tabled at the 41st
session by the State of the Southern Cameroon and what
is its strategic importance for the struggle?

However, don’t stand by on Accra.. Support
the Southern Cameroons presence there. Southern
Cameroons has gone there on borrowed resources and
will be unable to sustain its stay there unless
support comes in swiftly. We urgently need a minimum
of 800,000 CFA to support our presence here and return
home.

The Finance Committee set up at Dallas should
take up this urgent S.O.S (as first collective action
)and send what is raised to Mr. Martin Yembe back home
in Bamenda who has been directed on the fastest means
of reaching us in Accra.

All Southern Cameroonians who believe in the
Southern Cameroons Struggle at the legal front should
urgently come to the assistance of the present
Delegation in Accra. All contributions should be sent
through Western Union, First Trust Bank or Money Line.
A detailed Financial report/ Accounting will be in the
final report at the end of the session.

M Nje

Casara,
Can you provide an email or any contact information for Mr. Martin Yembe. This will help those who contribute through Western Union to contact him with the information he needs to collect the money.

if any bank account has been set for that, it will greatly help if you can provide it. Some may like to make a direct money transfer.

Best regards for the effort so fair.

No one can dispel myths of the invulnerability in the NW/SW divide.It exists.The two provinces are bound to understand their cross-cultural setting and diversity.Moreso,they should know they are not culturally monolythic and mono-lingual,which calls for a division of idelogies and cultural misconceptions.The Anglophone political protagonists and partisans, on the two edges of the political spectrum(SDF and SCNC),usually lay claim to the verility in their believe and dogma.If we ponder closely,we shall see two camps of Anglophones segments in their struggle for the democratic transformation in the country.Both always propagate their victories and occasional threats,to unleash the dragon out of Bi Mvondo.

One line of thinking,holds that if all of the Anglophone ethnic groups can enjoin and make loud their condemnation against human right abuse,discrimination and exploitation, there can be some sort of concensus.In so far as they have divided views and always agree to disagree, the struggle for independence or supremacy will ever be regarded as a belittle semantic side-show, to the eyes of Bi Mvondo and his junta.

However,majority still hold an optimistic position,that things will change for the better only if there is that commitment and an ethnic tolerance amongst the Southern Cameroons irrespective of their multi-culturalism they can succeed.But the momentum of that struggle is being lagged behind due to those who instead add insult of hatred and comtempt to their already deplorable situation.People are waiting breathlessly for that day,a day for the Southern Cameroonians to shout loud 'free atlast,freedom freedom',independently in their own sovereign state.Still a tip of the iceberg.A hard nut to crack indeed.

Hey my friend, you could take a big example and scale it down to draw inspiration from or if you like reverse it the other way round. Freedom fighters have a common trait which is the stunch drive to achieve the goals for which they are ready to die.

Martin Luther King, Mandela, Malcolm X are flaring examples to emulate. Some of them failed while some succeeded. My advice will be that you keep an eye on things that made a chnage in the course of freedom and liberation over the time of history.

If you dont look, you shall commit the same errors over and over again. Like you have started the one gross mistake of advocating divide and rule in Cameroon instead of promoting a one Cameroon built on a solid democracy and equality! Malcolm X did in the states. It did not work. That is what Steve Biko stood for in South Africa through his Black conscious movement. It did not work. The hutus and tutsis, it did not work!

Advocates of divide and rule always fail for some reason. Mandela stood for a one south Africa built on egalitarian rule same as Martin Luther King. These situations are even worse than what we Cameroonians are facing. We have not even gone across the racial ribbon and we are agitating for division.

Ebonylad, clearly stated that on this forum we dart flying daggers at each other instead of analysing situations, comparing facts and putting the feedback on the table for debate. This person echoed my same worries about us never being able to unite because of our cultural differences even between SW/NW.

We are now talking the united states of African and we talking division in Cameroon!

Your little piece was empty and not infomrative as well. I see you have decided for me that I will have to be dragged into SCNC or join la republique. Are you now trying to make choices for me? Are you now trying to play the rule of a dictator and impose issues on me?

Watesih

Fon,Klemenceau,Knganjo,Vito,
Guys we are together.You know as I do that I have always given the Palestinian example here,where all Southern Cameroonians will have something to contribute to the SCNC course.Those who wanted a head on collision between the SDF,and the SCNC have now embraced this logic.You may be surprised that Rexon now sees some good faith to see the SDF contribute to the SCNC course.This is an abrupt about turn from the call to see the SDF dissolved.I will really be the last person to weaken the SCNC in any way,but we must also accept that we are not going to see the SCNC march forever in front of foreign chancelleries.The fight is at home,and argument of force must start taking precedence.We are ready to chip in whatever contribution,as long as there's something to shock Biya.

Ma Mary,
Set your mind at rest.This is our fight.I share the importance of the fallouts
from demonstrations,but we are not going to demonstrate every year,and then have refreshments in Paris restaurants.twelve years is a longtime in the life of a freedom movement,spo we should make a change from posturing to action.

Rexon,
Thank you for always being such a good historian.You have taught us that the UK has four capitals,but strangely enough you say you did not need to identify yourself with the demonstrations that took place in all these cities.We would have loved to see you in the Political capital London,because you are the one who started nursing the idea of marching to No.10 .If you keep yourself from public view,this gives the impression that you are not committed to this course.Nfor Ngalla Nfor,Chief Ayamba are always arrested in public domain,not behind their keyboards.
People may be tempted to brand you a coward,
or the usual Cpdm-like agent,who holds the strings behind the scenes.Anyway forget about your presence,and keep working on the good faith that has suddenly taken hold of you,and make you believe the SDF is our thing just as the SCNC.If we harmonise our stance about the two bodies,we will do many things.But if there's any cpdm preconceived
ideas to divide us,we will work relentlessly to defeat that.

rexon

Eyallow,

You raise something that caught my attention.

"I refer to myself as a Cameroonian with provenance from the North west province specifically Mankon, the very heart of the opposition party in Cameroon.

Ironically all the Cameroonians i know always introduce themselves as Cameroonians. I have never heard anyone say i am a southern Cameroonian!"

This is what a scottish friend of mine wrote as a protest to my preparation to mourn the 20th of May with other Southern Cameroonians in Scotland:

"Firstly, Rexon - I respect your right to choose whether or not to celebrate 20 May. I appreciate that there will be sections of Cameroon society who do not celebrate 20 May just as there are many people in UK who do not support the notion of Great Britain & the monarchy. If you do not believe in certain celebrations, fair enough.


Cameroonians in UK need to realise one thing - you are not in your homeland now. You are not seen by Scottish people as anglophones or francophones. ..you are seen as Cameroonians first of all.

When you make a new life outside your country, you are supposed to leave behind the bitterness that destroys society"

Eyallow,

I responded to my Scottish friend by remembering her that she has been fighting for her own independence in my own eyes and i think it is the responsibility of Southern Cameroonians to also fight for their independence. Constitutionally, i mean La Republiques own constitution, we are not part of them. Also there are two Congo's and all of them refer to themselves as Congolese.

What is very much embarassing is the fact that Southern Cameroonians dont want to defend their own land. Fighting for once freedom is a human right that no one should take away from you.

Imagine a country changing its name from:

"La Republique du Cameroun of 1st january 1960, to the federal republic of Cameroun on the 1st of october 1961, to United Republic of Cameroun on the 20th of May 1972, and back to La Republique on the 4th of February 1984"

Why the name changing syndrome? I wont want to elaborate on several contextual issues here, but i will like to remind you that, we have a moral responsibility to defend the colonisation of our land. That has nothing to do with dividing a union that never existed in the first place. La Republique has given us enough evidence that we are not in any Union with them. Just reflect on your position and maybe understand that we should be discussing but how we can unite the two Southern Cameroonian provinces and cultures and defend ourselves from the colonisation by La Republique.

Watesih,

It is far from being absent from the public. For your information, my partner was at 10 Downing. As a strategic move, i had to organise something else because i felt it would have an impact on another community that knows nothing about our struggle for independence and is in my view part of the problem. I am still struggling to contain the protest that is coming from all angles. Though it was not covered by the media because of some inproper coordination, in my opinion, it created an impact.

Ma Mary

Watesih:
Actually, we should demonstrate as often as we can, but do other aspects of the work as well, many of which happen out of sight. The people who do the demonstrations should be encouraged and not discouraged.

Demonstrations are hungry work, and it is normal for those so engaged to eat after the demonstration, and in a large city, that generally means going to a restaurant. The problem here is not that demonstrators had to eat, but the fact that the rapporteur made it a prominent part of his report. We have had demonstrations in Washington, Minneapolis and New York, and went to eat afterwards. That was never part of any report.

Is quite sad, tribalism runs deep in Cameroonians. Well this will never end. So long as we live it will there. We just have to learn how to deal with it.
I hear folks here talking about a separate southern Cameroon state. Where are you from? Please can we for once think twice? This is an impossible mission. Till death we shall see no separation will fight against that. I come from English speaking Cameroons and i don’t think this is the way out.
We need a federal system of gov't like that of the US, anything aside that won't work. Mark this day in your calendar .Two hundred years from now it won't happen. Your kids and my kids will tell you when they die and join us where the death goes.
Mind you, Cameroon was a single country before the separate administration by the English and French. I am so sad, I mean really sad with some of my countrymen for being less informed. After staying abroad for years they do not seem to see and learn. I can go writing on this topic till thy kingdom comes. It eats me up every time I sit on my desk and see some news on it.
Folks especially those abroad tackle this with a naive mind.
Can we please for once sit and ask ourselves, what are we going to do with all the French speaking Cameroonians living in English Cameroons and vice versa.
I will continue of this topics in my next posting.I have asked this question time and again, but none can give me an accurate answer.
With the rate at which tribalism is eating us, i see a fail state emerging from this mess. If someday we happen to separate, the entire North West will disintegrate likewise the South West province. The rate of tribalism within these 2 provinces is unspeakable. If you can't solve the problems in your house, how can you help others?
At times i feel like crying. God is testing us. If you do unto others what you want others to do unto you, then we shall prevail. If you love your neighbors as yourself we shall prevail.
I put most of the blame on the present regime; they use tribalism to advance their course. This wound can only heal if we can be less selfish. Sad to say selfishness is a human disease. Let this be our food for thought

M Nje

Revolutionist,
Can you provide the source of your information to justification that the Cameroon you talked about should include Southern Cameroons.

If you cannot show that, then you statement is not a statement of fact but rather your own political view. I have made research on that topic and I cannot find anything to show that Southern Cameroons is a legal part of the former East Cameroon.

You said the solution to our problem is a US style of federation. Apparently you have not been following events. When Southern Cameroonians met in Buea and Bamenda, for the AAC1 and AAC2 respectively, they gave the government of La Republique the chance to return to a two state federation. That was even a huge gesture because they were ready to compromise the right of Southern Cameroons to exist as an independent state. The results of the Bamenda AAC2 clearly required that if La Republique does not accept the offer, then Southern Cameroonians will go ahead and declare her independent.

Mr Biya refused the offer claiming federation was expensive. As a result, Justice Ebong and other Southern Cameroonians proclaimed the restoration of the independence of Southern Cameroons at the radio Buea in 1999. This was in accordance to the Bamenda declaration of the AAC2. During the last constitutional amendment J.N. Forcha tried but fail to secure a return to the federal constitution.

You may want to know that Southern Cameroons went into the illegal federation with La Republique as an independent state. When that federation was abolished, each state has to move its own way. That is what happen with the collapse of the USSR. Each of the Republic that made up the USSR has a right to become an independent state once the “ Federation” collapse. If the US were to cease from existing, each state will become a nation on its own with its own Head of State.


You start to talk about the apparent present of tribalism in Southern Cameroons but ended up that it is mostly fuel by La Republique. So if La Republique is mostly responsible for the tribalism you suggest exist in Southern Cameroons, then you are acknowledging that the ordinary Southern Cameroonian does not have any tribal tendencies that will prevent the existence of a Southern Cameroon state.

From 1954 to 1961, Southern Cameroons existed as a quasi-autonomous state with its own government in Buea, a house of representative and a head of government. You still have the residence of the Prime Minister behind the Polices headquarter in Buea. There is no history of tribal wars or struggle at any of these times that threaten the existence of the state.

It has been done before and it can be done.

The SCNC should understand that Tony Blair could have given them military assistance if they (SCNC) had one. That is the only way help comes from these big powers; they are in Iraq, Afghanistan, etc yet the SCNC matter had been on their tables long before some of these recent crises in which they (big powers) are paying more attention to than listening to whining babies.

rexon

Revolutionist,

There is a British saying:

"Doubts unite, certitude divides"

What is certain is that La Republique has colonised the Southern Cameroons. They are doing everything to satisfy their pre-conceived and selfish agenda's. If there was any doubt that they have not colonised us, we wouldnt have had all these long battle leading to the creation of movements like the SCNC. As M Nje explained above, we would have dialogue and came out with a resolution.

Though our premise for struggling to get ourselves free is our constitutional rights as defined by the boundaries left before 1961, even when anyone looks at the political tactics to colonise us and the level of marginalisation of Southern Cameroons, he immediately knows there is something wrong. Recently, even clergymen have been providing prophetic messages calling on Southern Cameroonians to defend themselves.

How can you explain why a country that claims to be united has never had a Southern Cameroonian minister of finance, the economy, territorial administration, etc? how can u explain why a previously once vibrant cities (Kumba and Mamfe) have now been reduced to places without even motorable roads, when they had passable roads as far as the 1915's?, How can you explain why all important positions in Sonara are occupied by people east of the Moungo?, How can you explain the level of underdevelopment of the Southern Cameroons as opposed to La Republique?, How can you explain why out of the number of recent police recruits, less than 3 percent were from the Southern Cameroons? How can you explain why students were recently shot at UB for fighting fraud when the regime wanted to impose french students who did not pass the competitive entrance exams, and all we were told was a law that talks of regional equilibrium? Where was this law all these years and why wasn't it imposed for the entrance exams at Enam, CUSS, Survey School, P and T entrance exams, Public works department, National polytechnic in Yaounde, etc. etc.? I can go on and on and the list will never end.

Let me remind you once more, "Doubts unite, certitude divides". I will like to assure you that, we are the ones who has been helping them colonise us through all these years. Because, we are struggling to behave like them in return for peanuts and has never stood for our rights. We thank God that he has given us courageous people like Ngorji Ndinka, Chief Ayamba, Nfor Ngalla, Carlson Ayangwe, Peter Teforlack, Ma Mary, Akwanga Ebenezer, etc. etc. who are focused on spreading the message accross a cross section of Southern Cameroonians and world leaders. I can assure you that, we are creating awareness on the Southern Cameroonian course and day after day, we are succeeding. Even if our leaders are killed without achieving our independence, we have got the message and another generation will take the battle further.

Thank you.

Hi Rexon, l am a 100 percent SCNC member who is studying in a University here in the UK and will like to get in touch with you.
l have been reading your comments and find them very mature and well balanced.

Hi Rexon,
just wondering how many signed the petition handed in at 10 Downing Street?

Will be going to Trafalgar Square today for some African festivities, There is a "Cameroon stand" on show and Mr. Henri Dikongue will be playing.
Hope to meet some recognisable faces there.
A wonderful day to you all.

Most Southern Cameroonians feel lost as a colony in la Republique, but most people feel powerless, or devalue the worth of their particular effort. Therefore, they try to ignore what is going on, and try to go about "their business", but this problem is not going to go away. The colonialists will only get bolder and keep taking more and more.

Then you have the few Southern Cameroonians who share in the booty. They are quite vehement in stating that we are "one country". Ayellow said something about the colonial passport. It means nothing. During the peak period of European colonization, people travelled with papers given by the colonial masters. So, Southern Cameroonians travelled with documents from Her Majesty's Govt and so on. Africans were known primarily as British subjects or French subjects. A colonial passport or travel document is just a fact of existence for colonial subjects.

Rexon rehashed some of the history again, but some people do not read. I wonder what their stake is in our present unfortunate state.
