YES,IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE SAME WITH THE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS AND THE ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICIALS OF CAMEROON.I DONT KNOW WHAT PEOPLE LIKE INONI AND THE OTHER SELFISH SOUTHERN CAMEROONIANS IN BIYA'S GOVERNMENT ARE THINKING WHEN SUCH A THING HAPPENS.THEY ARE ALWAYS POWERFUL WHEN FACING CIVILIANS BUT WHEN FACED WITH WHAT THEY WERE TRAINED TO DO,THEY BECOME SHEEPS WAITING TO BE SLAUGTERED.WE WILL CONTINUE TO SUFFER UNTILL WE REALISE THAT A FEW CUPS OF RICE AND SOME BATTLES OF BEER IS NOT WHAT WE WANT IN CAMEROON POLITICS.
FOR THE FAMILIES THAT LOST LOVE ONES,THEY SHOULD TAKE HEART AND ALSO REMEMBER THAT THE GREAT LORD WILL REWARD THE BRUTAL KILLERS AT HIS OWN TIME.

The post would have done some of us a favour by posting necessary details of the situation of these kids and contact info of their parents if possible while they were at hospital. We would have therefore been able to chip in some financial assistance to the appropriate quarters.

Southern Cameroons, th Bakassi Factor.

2006-08-24

Press Release issued on 16 August 2006 by Southern Cameroons National
Council (SCNC) on the issue of the Bakassi Peninsula and the recent
Greentree Agreement.

The struggle for the restoration of the statehood and sovereign
independence of Southern Cameroons is a bone in la Republique du
Camerouns neck while the Bakassi factor is a diversion. [..]The so-
called Greentree Agreement in New York last June 2006 does not, in
the least, transform illegality into legality.

Like a mask used to conceal reality and mislead, la Republique du
Cameroun is using its so-called victory over Nigeria at the
International Court of Justice (ICJ) confirmed by the Greentree
Agreement to divert both national and international attention from
the real problem on the ground, namely, her annexation and occupation
of the former UN Trust territory of the Southern Cameroons. The
Southern Cameroons is a fact of history and law based on
international treaties which cannot be wished away [..].

It is of cardinal importance we understand that Southern Cameroons
never took la Republique du Cameroun to the ICJ. So la Republique du
Cameroun cannot boost that it has won and by that victory sealed
Southern Cameroons inalienable right to self-determination. The right
to self-determination is central to and inextinguishable in all
nations and peoples. It is also the highest principle of
international law. This explains why the birth of new nations where
annexation prevails is unstoppable. As life is sacred to man, so is
sovereignty to a nation.

According to the Memoriam submitted at the ICJ, it is la Republique
du Cameroun (French) or Republic of Cameroon (English) that sued
Nigeria accusing the latter of occupying the Bakassi Peninsula. As
not even an earthquake can blot out truth, la Republique du Cameroun
in its submission testifies that Bakassi Peninsula is Southern
Cameroons territory. This is an incontrovertible fact of territorial
history.

The ICJ in its ruling in October 2002 declares that sovereignty over
Bakassi Peninsula is Cameroon. The ruling stands against Nigeria
because the Anglo-German treaty of 1913 emphatically says so.
Southern Cameroonians ask, why did the ICJ not declare that Bakassi
is Southern Cameroons? It could not have done so because it was not
Southern Cameroons that sued Nigeria. And Southern Cameroons could
not directly do so because the ICJ handles only cases tabled by
member nations of the UN.

But the issue here is that the bone of contention was not the
colonial Agreements and Treaty that partitioned the German Kamerun
into two distinct nations and peoples, but the original boundary that
separated Cameroon from Nigeria. And rightly speaking this is the
Anglo-German Treaty of 1913.

The effective demarcation of the boundary in conformity with the
Anglo-German treaty of 1913 under UN supervision does not dislocate
or weaken Southern Cameroons inalienable right to self-determination.
It only goes to uphold the Abuja High Court Ruling of March 2002
which ruled in recognition of Southern Cameroons as a distinct nation
and called on Nigeria, in conformity with the African Charter on
Human and Peoples Rights (ACHPR) to defend Southern Cameroons right
to self exist as a separate nation. Cognizant of the fact that
Nigeria cannot win if it went on appeal, the Attorney General of
Nigeria never appealed against this ruling. Any judgement once not
appealed against awaits only execution. While appeal is time bound,
execution, no matter how delayed, must come.

As the UN will embark on the effective demarcation of the Anglo-
German boundary, the SCNC and the law-abiding Southern Cameroonian
people call on the World Body to complete its mission by equally
respecting the Anglo-French treaty which gave birth to French
Cameroun and British Southern Cameroons, the rightful owner of
Bakassi. It is the Anglo-French treaty that is the bone of contention
between Southern Cameroons and la Republique du Cameroun, while
Bakassi or Anglo-German treaty is cover up and diversion. According
to the Anglo-French Treaty of 19 January 1931, French Cameroun has no
maritime boundary with Nigeria. Consequently la Republique du
Cameroun, which is the successor state of French Cameroun, cannot own
what it never originally owned (namely, Bakassi).

The 1931 Anglo-French Treaty is not dead. Colonial treaties
constitute the foundation of all modern African States. This was the
basis of the Abuja High Court Ruling. Colonial treaties and the
principle of international jurisprudence of uti possedetis juris and
the critical date constitute the rock of the ACHPR litigation. This
Charter holds that all African states should respect boundaries
inherited at independence and that no nation has the right to annex
and impose foreign domination on another nation. La Republique du
Cameroun is signatory to the African Charter, which underscores the
right to self-determination.

Bakassi, by treaty, is Southern Cameroons territory. The inhabitants
have been victims of alien rule and brutal oppression because
Southern Cameroons, through neo-colonial intrigues, has been a victim
of imperfect decolonisation that paved the way for annexation by la
Republique du Cameroun. Bakassians are Southern Cameroonians as they
were under trusteeship era. Bakassi was a plebiscite district under
Victoria Division (Fako County) in the UN sponsored and organised
plebiscite of 1961. Let them unite with the SCNC and fight the common
enemy international conspiracy and neo-colonialism.

Under a sovereign Southern Cameroons Bakassi inhabitants will enjoy
freedom, justice, full rights to the natural resources of their
ancestral land. Yaounde is interested in the oil and not in the
people of Bakassi. Yaounde talks of Bakassi in relation to the oil
wealth.

Equitable development to raise the living standards of all the people
and regions of Southern Cameroons will be a right not a privilege for
the government and the Southern Cameroonian people will work in
partnership and the government will remain answerable to the
governed. The mission of the government will be to perfect and
enhance the rule of law, human freedom, checks and balance, equitable
and balanced development, transparency and accountability, and
creating a conducive environment for industrialisation. Human
freedom, dignity and the happiness of the Southern Cameroonian people
will be central to the policies of the government.

Demonstrating your irrevocable faith in the SCNC and its total
commitment to the restoration of the statehood and sovereign
independence of Southern Cameroons, we call on ALL SOUTHERN
CAMEROONIANS to [..] irrevocably support the SCNC call on the UN to
organise a referendum as the UN did, for example, in East Timor in
1999 that was annexed and occupied by Indonesia. From the result of
the referendum East Timor became independent becoming the 191st
sovereign member of the UN. For this referendum Southern Cameroonians
should be asked to vote between: 1) Do you want the statehood and
sovereign independence of Southern Cameroons be restored? OR 2) Do
you want Southern Cameroons to remain an integral part of la
Republique du Cameroun?

The birth of new nations in the world is unstoppable. Thanks to the
principle of the right to self-determination. The newest nation,
Montenegro, was admitted as the 192nd sovereign member of the UN on
June 28, 2006. This was after a democratically conducted
referendum.Since the right to self-determination, which is aimed at
transforming the ban on annexation, foreign domination, colonial
rule, into a reality is working so effectively in other continents of
the world, including Europe and Asia, why not in Africa?

Be not deceived and made a slave so that your descendants remain
slaves forever. Southern Cameroons will be FREE. Be a crusader for
Southern Cameroons FREEDOM. And make your children proud citizens of
a sovereign Southern Cameroons, where the sky will be the limit for
all the citizens.

We salute President O. Obasanjos declaration that Nigeria by
withdrawing from Bakassi, Nigeria was acting as a nation governed by
the rule of law.

Having now respected the ruling of the ICJ, if such action confirms
that international law takes precedence over municipal or national
law, Southern Cameroonians legitimately call on the Nigerian
Government to dutifully implement the Abuja Federal High Court Ruling
of March 5, 2002. The Ruling called on; The Federal Republic of
Nigeria to take necessary measures to place the case of the people of
the geographical territory known as of 1st October 1960 as Southern
Cameroons for self determination before the United Nations General
Assembly and any other relevant International Organisation.

Long Live the Right to SELF-DETERMINATION.
Long Live the struggle for World Democracy and Justice.
Long Live the Southern Cameroons Struggle for FREEDOM."

Special thanks to those who have been posting.

Recently members of the Baath party (cpdm)sat down in Kumba and requested for the constitution to be amended for the party to continue to govern under these circumstances that we see police and gendarme shooting and killing students. The cpdm administration is doing nothing to punish these guys. Kumba cpdm is unable to solve the present crisis rocking kumba but they are already thinking of 2011 election. Do yo think amending the constitution is more important that these students who have been killed. Shame
