Saturday. October 7, 2017 WE DECRY ANGLOPHONE INTIMIDATION, ABUSES AND LQOTING BY FORCES
We know that we are all disturbed by the images of brutality, looting, arrests, inhumane treatment and violence upon peaceful. unarmed and harmless citizens by the military all across the North West and South West Regions.
We condemn with all energy, these acts of barbarism, irresponsible and unprofessional acts by the military. It is the duty of every soldier to protect, respect and defend every citizen.
Young and old, men and women are currently arrested from their homes, detained and transported to Yaounde. Some are forced to flee to farms and bushes to seek refuge, homes and properties have been destroyed and businesses reportedly looted.
Several families have been left in pain and hurt, not knowing the whereabouts of their loved ones, this is totally unacceptable in a nation that claims to respect human rights and all international conventions.
We strongly condemn the harassment of Anglophones in Yaounde and Douala. Cameroonians are free to live and work in any part of the country. No one should be stigmarised because they are Anglophones or Francophones. Freedom of association should not be selective!
There is no excuse for this, no words to describe the horror faced by the people, this must stop!
