7 Things that the All Ambazonia Consultative Council (AACC) – Holding in Washington DC, Need to Address

2. Announce School Resumption: It is common knowledge that Anglophone kids have been going to school in many parts of the North West and South West, especially in the urban areas. However, given that there is no official declaration from the revolutionary leaders that schools should resume, everytime a child goes out, they are at risk. However, some children, especially those from poorer backgrounds, have lost two years of studies. Children from affluent families have been sent over to cities East of the Mungo or sent abroad, where they are studying in peace. The paradox of this situation is that the kids making the most sacrifice - by not going to school - will be the ones who will have no place in a new dispensation. Be it a Federation or a New State, no one is going to employ kids who never went to school. Hence, those who made the sacrifices will remain slaves to the educated ones who made no sacrifices. This approach runs the risk of replicating the South African situation, whereby Freedom arrived but the critical mass of the population was incapable of taking leadership and control of their country, thereby effectively handing it back to the oppressors. Also, depriving children of education has no impact on Biya's Regime, as they do not care about the education of children in the first place. Finally, it is only the Taliban or Boko Haram that use the deprivation of children from schooling as a political tool. 

Cameroon: Anglophone Elites Raise Funds to Prop Up Biya

As war rages across the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon, as Biyas soldiers kill, rape, maim civilians and burn their villages, and restoration forces, under the banner of self-defense carry out counter-attacks both on the military and anyone whom they class as a 'traitor' or 'blackleg', the ordinary person is left at the mercy of the warring factions. The collapse of government and failure of the security apparatus spells doom for the country once known as 'Africa in Miniature'.

From Switzerland to Music: Kemta Haunts Biya, Tells Anglophones Not to Give Up Their Quest for Freedom

In his latest release titled Don't Give Up, Kemta captures the short history of the current phase of the Anglophone crisis. He highlights that although some are asking for Federalism and some Separation, the bottom line is that, everyone wants Biya to go. Also, speaking on behalf of CODE, Kemta in this piece, demands that the Cameroon military stop the genocide it is carrying out in the Anglophone Regions. He further makes the declaration that Biya is wrong to tag Anglophone fighters as 'terrorists' given that they are simply engaged in legitimate self-defense.  A Cameroonian of Francophone extraction, Kemta has been among one of the most vocal activists challenging the gradual and systematic extermination of English-Speaking Cameroonians. He has been part of many demonstrations organised in the United Kingdom. (Click to read full article)

Cameroon Military Allegedly Capture Base of Separatist Fighters

The Cameroon Military has been in a long drawn out conflict with Separatist fighters, following Biya's declaration of war against activists. Activists who were hitherto peacefully demanding that the Anglophone problem be resolved either through a Two-State Federation or through a Separation of the Country, feel their actions are justified as they are merely defending themselves from Biya's brutality. Huge casualties have been recorded on both sides of the warring factions, but the most casualty has been suffered by the ordinary citizen, faced with the challenges of a war situation. 

Killed in Church by A Struggle Ordained by God: The End of Chief Itoh Stephen Esoh

Despite the Chief's political affiliations, it is said he was a soft-spoken and pragmatic man, much loved within his family and the community of Ekondo-Titi. It is therefore feared that the repercussions of his murder might be far-reaching.  Sadly enough, should this murder create a rift within the community, the only person who will benefit from it is Biya and his regime. Hence, by going into the 'house of God' taking out a Chief and killing him, the 'God-ordained struggle' might have just shot itself in the foot. 

The UN and Ambazonia: The Case of Missing Files or Misfiling?

English-Speaking Cameroonians will need to gain some degree of autonomy before they can think of approaching the UN. As an organisation of independent states, the UN deals with independent entities, not help them gain independence.  English-Speaking Cameroonians will need to gain some degree of autonomy before they can think of approaching the UN.

Activism Beyond Borders, Defying The Biya Intimidation Tactic

If Biya expected that the abduction of Sisiku and others will frighten other activists across the world, he was grossly mistaken. Like a hydra, as he cuts one head, two others spring up in its place. As such, despite trying to intimidate activists by holding Sisiku and Co incommunicado and branding them terrorists, many more voices have sprung up in the diaspora, speaking ever so loudly against the carnage that has been unleashed on Anglophones. In a desperate move, the charlatan he appointed as his Minister of Territorial Administration has been making baseless threats about activists in the USA.
