It looks like they have been released. This group is headed for the same treadmill that SCNC has been experiencing. They need to talk to SCNC and strategize. This is the cycle:

Public demonstrations announced by the pressure group
Massive show of force to intimidate the public from joining
Peaceful demonstration barely begins
Nasty public beating of the pressure group, again to intimidate the public, but not enough beating to cause fatal injuries
The public watches in fear. If there were no beating they would join
Detention of members of the group
Release of the group before international outrage begins
After some rest, the cycle is repeated

People who have been on this treadmill Albert Mukong, Gorji Dinka, Bebey Black, Pius Njawe, Frederick Alobwede Ebong, Amb Fossung, Ebenezar Akwanga, Martin Ngeka Luma, Nfor Ngalla Nfor, Chief Ayamba, others and now these Oboso people

Cameroon government is quite happy to maintain things that way. There has to be away to break out of this cycle, using non-violent techniques. Next time you are in Washington DC, let us talk.

As long as the perpetrators of such crimes continue to remain nameless, they will never learn anything. Why do writers on this forum refuse to call them by their names for history to be recorded? If they have the courtage to do what they are doing, they ought to have the courage to have their identitis revealed to the world. That is the weapon of a peaceful demonstrator! Legion Commander, Senior Divisional Officer, Commandant etc mean nothing. but names of individuals taking cover under such titles mean something.

PAUL BIYA CAN BE PRESIDENT FOR ANOTHER 28YRS IF HE REALLY WANTS TO,
CUZ BELIEVE IT OR NOT THE REVOLUTION IS FAILING. ......!!!

(1) CAMEROONIANS ARE NOT HUNGRY ENOUGH TO BE ANGRY TO CARRY OUT A REVOLUTION.

(2) THERE IS A SERIOUS LACK OF UNITY.

(3) SOME ARE JUST PASSIVE ABOUT THE WHOLE BIYA MUST GO THING, OR DON’T
JUST CARE AT ALL OR HAVE WRITTEN THE COUNTRY OFF.......

(4) OTHERS HOME AND ABROAD ARE WAITING FOR A LEADER. A TRUE REVOLUTION
DOES NOT HAVE A LEADER. ( FEB 23RD IN DOUALA ( AKWA ) SOME OPPOSITION
LEADERS ARE ARRESTED AND EVERYTHING STOPS )

(5) CALL ALL YOU BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THE POLICE , GENDARMERIE AND
MILITARY AND TALK TO THEM AS FAMILY. MOST OF THEM ARE UNINFORMED AND
AFRAID TO LOSE WHAT THEY ARE BENEFITING RIGHT NOW. EXPLAIN TO THEM
THIS IS FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY AND THE FUTURE OF THEIR OWN
CHILDREN.

CAMEROONIANS THE WORLD OVER NEED TO STOP. I MEAN STOP ALL THIS FAKE
PROTEST RIGHT NOW......!!!

TALK TO SOME IN DOUALA, YAOUNDE , BAMEDA, BUEA, BAFOUSSAM AND THEY ARE
CLUELESS OR UNINFORMED ABOUT ALL OF WHAT IS GOING ON OR DON’T JUST
CARE AT ALL.

IF NOT READY AS A GROUP OR AS ONE POEPLE....... DON’T EVEN START AT ALL.

REMEMBER THIS REVOLUTION SHOULD BE ONE SHOT DEAL. THE WHOLE OF
SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA IS WATCHING AND WAITING FOR THAT INSPIRATION FROM
CAMEROON. FAILURE IN CAMEROON SHOULD NOT BE AN OPTION.

THE MINISTER OF INFORMATION IN CAMEROON SAID 2 DAYS AGO THAT THOSE
ABROAD ARE SEATING IN THEIR COMFORTABLE HOMES AND SENDING THOSE IN
CAMEROON TO GO DIE FOR THEM.

TO AN EXTENT HE IS RIGHT OR HAS A POINT FOR CAMEROONIANS ABROAD
ESPECIALLY THE USA HAVE BEEN A COMPLETE FAILURE.

PROTEST CALLED FOR FEB 23RD AND 24TH INFRONT OF THE CAMEROON EMBASSY
IN WASHINGTON DC AND NOT A SINGLE SOUL SHOWED UP, BUT AT A SPATANS
PARTY FEW WEEKS AGO THERE WAS OVER 1,500 CAMEROONIANS DRUNK AS HELL
PARTYING TILL 6 AM IN THE MORNING.

LISTEN TO THE END OF THE VIDEO IN SOUTH AFRICA HOW THE GUYS ARE
ALREADY TALKING ABOUT GOING TO DRINK AND PARTY.

YOU THINK TUNISIANS, EGYPTIANS, AND NOW LIBYANS HAD THE TIME TO GO PARTY.

CAMEROONIANS DON'T EVEN REALISE CAMEROON IS ONE OF THE LAST NATIONS IN
AFRICA WITH IT'S ONLY GOOD NEWS COMING OUT OF IT, BEING SAMUEL ETO’O.

what is so annoying about all these is the fact that everytime there is some kind of detention made on pieceful demonstrators, the legion commander or what ever he is called says he takes orders from above. if really the law states that people or individuals can not be detained for more than 48 hours without a charge. why then do then put these laws on paper and not follow them.The entire adimistrative body in cameroonroon is corruped. to get this whole situation taken care of is to wipe out biya and his entire crew, beginning from ministers right down to directors.Thank God the middle east has got up from slumber. i strongly believe this will spread south of the continent and eventually get to cameroon.I don't know what it is going to take for Biya and his crew to understand that people are sick and tire of what is going on.it might take time for us to get him out of there but i strongly believe it will get there some day God bless cameroonians

Cameroonians are mostly all talk when it comes to supporting a cause. Sure a few may come out to protest and be seen, but their motivation is usually unclear. There often no sustainably of the principles for which they protested.
In addition to organization and strategy, a movement requires funding in order to operate. Movements are funded by supporters and the well off (supposed big talkers in Diaspora) the individual supporter or group the more money they would donate to the cause. But ask Cameroonians to support a cause and you start to get excuses. But they can party!!! One other flaw is that people seem to feel that there is not a direct benefit to them, forgetting the fact that this is for the good of the country as a whole.
Change in most societies have come from some significant, mostly monetary support from abroad. Because those abroad cannot be on ground their contributions would make a big difference in helping fund logistics etc. Problem with this is that there has not been the accountability on the part of the leaders of some of these movements giving the holouts more excuses not to contribute.
From my experience and given the history of the various movements for change, I do not see any hope for Cameroon.
