If social media was present 30 years ago, nations should have been freed a long time ago. Now you have the chance to free yourselves. And coordination is all you need.
In truth, no political-oriented struggle has ever been won without the use of propaganda because chiseling out an implanted political system requires political approaches. And political changes can never rule out propaganda.
That explains why there is no credible, fair, objective, balanced and accurate institutional media.
You should expect propaganda from citizens in every country because man is a political being. It is part of the political game. Protagonists and antagonists play the game.
The case becomes even worst when the internet is shut down and peoples rely on third and fourth parties for information and dissemination. Whom do you blame? The people or government?
The ultimate goal is to win the struggle using non-violent approaches as in our case. And if some parties have chosen to use a non-violent propaganda approach, that is another approach as long as it remains non-violent.
As a peace journalism researcher, we have never come to a final conclusion on how to deal away with propaganda journalism even after applying peace journalism theory that gives all relevant parties a voice in conflicts or crisis transformation. This is because asking the media to preach only peace-oriented materials still means encouraging peace propaganda too.
Propaganda has come to stay in contemporary politics, the case of Southern Cameroons and Cameroun. Play to it and win or leave it and lose. There are no saints but no guns among us. Get on the social media and sell your case to the world because your stories and images and videos speak volumes.
In all the cases the UN has intervened in since 1945, propaganda was used by all parties, citing available data. Even the UN is a political organization whose member states all effectively use propaganda state media.
To me, politics is both a means and an end in itself. So beware of those who criticize your propaganda because their own existing propaganda could be failing them. La Republic spies will tell you how propaganda will not call in the UN. The UN is not a religious body.
