As Africans across the world and lamenting the new wave of Chinese colonial expeditions across Africa and the Caribbean, it appears as if Africans are not even welcome to live freely in China. Amidst many reports of everyday racism faced by Africans who live, study or work in China, a Zambian student has allegedly been beaten to death for dating a Chinese woman.
A demonstration across major cities and countries in the world was therefore announced. Those currently confirmed are: YAOUNDE - LONDON - NEW YORK - PARIS - WASHINGTON DC - BELGIUM - SOUTH AFRICA Drawing inspiration from the people of Burkina Faso, who stood together as one and demanded the departure of Blaise Compaore, this demonstration is a call to every Cameroonian, who wants things to change, irrespective of their linguistic background or political affiliation, to come out en masse and demand an end to Biya's monstrosity.
As images and videos flooded social mediasphere at the peak of the Notting Hill Carnival, it was without much surprise when Anti-War and Human Rights Activist, Maya Evans posted images of Police engaged in Stop and Search. It would have been a routine exercise but for the fact that the targets were mainly young men, aged 25 or below, of Afro-Caribbean backgrounds. Maya goes on to explain that upon speaking to some of the young people, it appeared that many wondered if this was a legal act.
The demonstrators where unanimous in the condemnation of the brutal massacre of English-Speaking Cameroonians. They were also very vocal in condemning the other atrocities perpetrated by the Biya regime among women and children in other parts of the country. Talking to one of the organisers, he confirmed that they are guided by the principle that by working with others, all oppressed people can easily win against oppression than if they were working on their own. He said this was the beginning of a movement that was hoped will spread across all French-Speaking African countries. Their broad objective is not only to condemn the dictatorships that seem to be more rampant in Francophone Africa, but also to ensure the destruction of the Francs CFA.
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.
