I greatly commend the critical analyses given by the post journalist pertaining the sad and smypathetic events that unfolded in Cameroon a forth night ago.

It is horrible and disgusting sitting-by and watching our belove country falling apart. Sometimes one is tempted to questioned. "where are the Gods of the land that these kind of things are allowed to happen?.

Cameroon has been a peacful country since time immemorial. Why is it that today when the evolution of the world is fast pulling nations ahead but that of Cameroon is rather taking us backwards comparison to the days of French revolution?.

We all agree that people come and go but the state and it,s institutions remain. The Biya's era shall go down in history as the worst period that Cameroonians have experience the most violent and autocratic rule. A government that fails to listen to the wish of it,s people is doom to crumble woefully even if it takes centuries.

Cameroonians and most specifically the opposition leaders that act as the voice of the people when it comes to discontent and anger should educate its people and let them know that demonstrations that goes with the burning down of institutions have no grounds even if they are geniune. The burning down of schools, offices,business places will directly or indirectly affect each and every one and further aggravate their frustrations.The children of the schools affected will not be given a different academic year nor the parents of the business places burn down be offered other jobs. Who is then the loser? is it the government or the common man on the street.

We all agree that anger and frustration may lead some one to extremism but we can not compromise the burning down and looting of our institutions.

The government of Cameroon should be aware that the use of brutal force to quel the civilian uprising is invariably caling for armed factions that when emerged tomorrow will be difficlut to suppress.

Cameroon is a pecae loving nation.We will not even a bit, want to see our beloved country turn apart like Kenya just because of the selfish desires of our so called mighty leader and his stooges.

God please safe my beloved country.

That comment was absolutely brilliant gentleman. Keep your comments flowing.

Ma Mary

"The long and short of the transporters' strike is that it ignited a heap of smouldering grievances among the youths and other Cameroonians; those who see Brasseries du Cameroun as a 'drug' industry, PMUC as drain on the economy as well as fuelling corruption amongst the armed forces, vacillating politicians who tell youths blatant lies and voracious tax collectors who feed fat from both the government and taxpayers."

Not my words, USMinnesota; Not my words.
Southern Cameroonians rightly see the Alcohol Industrial Complex as a dangerous addictive drug distributors and a drain on productive activities and not a "success story". What planet are you from. You live in the USA where the alcohol is seriously regulated. Try to sell alcohol to a minor in your college town, my friend, and you will become tattooed Clyde's wife in Mankato State Prison

Mr Biya.

Can you not see that it is you who is the "demon"? If you cared anything at all about your country and it's people you would step down! Of course you will not but will continue to pose as a democratically elected leader. Can you not see that your days are numbered? Hopefully one day you will be in the prison cell that you have put so many others in. Most of them were innocent but you are not!!!!!!

BSC Restoration Government Responds To
The February 2008 Massacre by Paul Biya

Fellow British Southern Cameroonians:

The brutality that was carried out against our citizens this past week adds a sweltering sense of urgency to the restoration of our stolen sovereignty. The most important thing you should do at this time is refrain from involving yourselves in the political affairs of the foreign country next door to us and east of the Mungo river. For these matters in the Republic of Cameroun are veritable distractions from our total focus on restoring our independence. Paul Biya's brutality on our citizens this past week should make it even clearer and even more urgent that we should not waver for a single moment from our determination to take our national sovereignty.

Your Restoration Government has chosen, for the time being, not to retaliate. Consider the kind of entity we are dealing with here. In his televised speech, when Biya used the phrase “apprentice sorcerers”, he reminded us all, once again, that he is not normal human; that he is a demonic force, a blood thirsty sorcerer. Photos of the youths whom Biya's troops slaughtered this week depict this event as the veritable handiwork of a demon and seasoned “sorcerer”. Yes, the British Southern Cameroons Restoration Government is at work to decolonise our country and restore our self-government. But in no way do we want to build our reclaimed sovereignty on blood. For it is written, “those who come with the sword die with the sword.” Unless forced to resort to force, our goal is to leave for our children the legacy of a nation that is built on the rule of law. ◊

Self defense is an inalienable right, inalienable because it is inherent in all humans, not derived from any law. And so international law and morality bow to it. Indeed, strikes, riots and revolutions have always been the preferred pathways out of oppressions and towards autonomy. The Boston Tea Party and the later American Revolution decolonised the people of the United States, transforming them into one of the greatest nations in the world today. Storming of the Bastille in 1789 freed the French from a tyrant as corrupt blood thirsty as Paul Biya.

To our neighbors suffering the brutal weight of this Biya regime, we offer our sympathy--since we fully share your grief--and we rise to stand with you as you fight to reclaim your God-given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Biya's heavy handedness with you continues the state terrorism that Ahidjo directed against your parents in the 1960s. Time has not erased from human memory Ahidjo's genocide which killed more than half a million of your patriotic parents in the first decade of your independence– almost all of them Bassas and Bamileke. Time is not going to erase memory of the massacre that Paul Biya is now carrying out against your children today in 2008. Have no doubt that the world is witnessing that only the name has change, for Biya’s regime is a mere continuation of Ahidjo's 1960s regime.


Speaking to the nation on February 11, 2008, just two weeks earlier, Paul Biya pretended that the future was rosy for the youth of Cameroun. Now, barely two weeks later, his helicopter gunships and machine guns slaughter these very youth, letting the world know that by "rosy" he actually meant a bloody future for you. And your offense? Asking for employment and fair prices for basic needs. No family head butchers a hungry child for crying. If Biya were serving you or your country, he would never call you “apprentice sorcerers”; instead, he would relieve your pain. On national television last week, he would be talking like other presidents today when they meet a suffering community--with empathy in his eye and voice, not with vengeance and the fury of a blood thirsty vampire. You deserve better.


Fortunately, time favours you, not Biya who cannot turn back the clock. He represents the past – the dark past. The Camerounian youth represent the future, and the Republic of Cameroun rightfully belongs to them. Do not give up. Continue your valiant struggle against the sorcery that holds you and your country hostage. Victory and history are on your side. Once you free yourselves of the dark cloud that Biya and his regime have hung over you since 1982, we shall re-establish our ages long diplomatic and trade ties. We promise you our friendship and pledge to maintain good, exemplary, neighbourly ties with you. For now, harbour not the slightest doubt but that you have our total moral support. It is obvious that the freedom loving democratic world out there also sympathises with you and supports you morally.

To our British Southern Cameroonians, your Restoration Government is hard on the program to return us to the state of independence, freedom and civilised rule. That is because the Southern Cameroons was practically independent, its people were free and government was civilised and a servant of the people and not their master. You shall have a major role to play in bringing us to our dream of freedom.

Carlson Anyangwe
Head of Government

I am delighted to inform everyone that our application to demonstrate at the Cameroon Embassy on March 14th in regards to the recent situation in Cameroon has been approved. I received a call this morning at 7:30 am from Officer Walter of the United States Secret Service. He questioned me as the person who send in the application. After answering all his questions, he informed me that we have been approved and our demonstration starts at 10am to 1pm on Friday March 14th, 2008.

The will be D.C police presence for our protection, no one will be arrested as the demonstration will be peaceful. No drums will be allowed. Flyers and posters are allowed, Loud Speakers are allowed, no cars to be parked around that area. We need to be organized as we have enough time to make the world know of our problems. CNN and Fox 5 DC have also accepted to be present to cover the event. I am still contacting other media outlets to cover the event.

Cameroonians Journalists within the US are encouraged to be present to cover this historic day in our lives.

Please spread this good news to the entire Cameroonian population within the United States. For those comming from out of state, please you all can car pull. We need as many Cameroonians as possible. Modalities are in the works. We will be informing everyone on the details. For the time being, we are pleased our application was approved.

Ma Mary,
First of all, you need to thoroughly check your facts about me. You are beginning to sound like a little crazy.
Second of all, I have never applauded the existence and activities of PMUC and Brasseries. My argument was that, these companies have their right to exist. However, if we don't want them, it is up to us to put them out of business by not buying their products. Alcohol is regulated in the West but are alcohol companies regulated? are these companies regulated In America? in Britain? in France? NO! There's a difference between regulating alcohol companies and regulating alcohol Ma Mary. I'm surprised that a self-proclaimed SCNC "intellectual" like you can't tell the difference. Companies have their right to exist as long as they are legally functioning.

Ma Mary,
Your desperate attempt to politicized every single issue has and will always be a flop. Not once, has the SCNC been mentioned by the Cameroonian populace during this strikes. What does this tell you? that the SCNC has no stronghold in Cameroon. Nobody gives a damn about your ineffective and crippled pressure group. Cameroonians are looking for real solutions, not careless ramblings by a bunch of internet warriors.
If the SCNC had a brain, they would have taken advantage of this confusion and declared independence. Unfortunately, the SCNC is not smart enough to carry out such a move. SCNC is a waste of my time.

Ndi O

Fellow Brosis,
Did you hear Paul Nji Atanga, the Minister of Special Duties on "BBC have your say?". If not, then you get to the page and hear him. My brothers, we are surrounded by evil men. One might be tempted to call some of these people " Animals". I regret saying this.
God have Mercy. We hope for better days.

Abdou

Hey Mukoi,
Thats great news. That what we expect from you guys. Good work and keep up. You have all our support.

Francis Nche

This SCNC story is read only in the internet. Nothing is known back here in Cameroon as such. Cameroonians are are all suffering from the suffocation of the evil regime that has nothing but to staff people to death. While we are here in Buea preventing the summarily sentencing by a minsterial order of the alleged victims arrested during the strike for two years, you people are talking of SCNC. Where are they therefore to protect our innocent children through the common law procedure from being imprison as those in other provinces without trial?
