We the Lawyers of the COMMON LAW ASSOCIATION OF SOUTHERN CAMEROON, want to thank our fellow brothers and sisters, wives and husbands, Chiefs ,Fons and elites for standing on our side in this period of strike. We think it’s our responsibility to fight for what belongs to us “the freedom and liberation of our people” We have been slaves to them for 50 years now and we risk being their slaves for forever if we don’t fight now, THEY USED OUR RESOURCES TO BUILD THEIR REGIONS AND MAKE THEMSELVES RICH while we suffer from poverty, rejection and marginalization.
We have met in different meetings to discuss the way forward and this is our conclusion:
- We will continue the strike indefinitely, Common Law Lawyers of Southern Cameroons were badly beaten and humiliated in BUEA, our robs seized by their military, most of our colleagues are in the hospital still undergoing treatment. They have refused to look into the problems we have posed but are brutally harassing people and shooting and killing striking youths. We will not back off until we are granted our freedom.
Let every one of us be united in this fight, we are encourage by the strike that’s organized by our brothers and sisters of Southern Cameroonians living in: South Africa, Canada, USA, UK, Germany, Australia and even in the country and many more of others country have notify us of a protest in January 2017. Remember that Mr Biya has sent military battalion to Bamenda and they have arrested almost 150 people from Bamenda alone taken them to Yaoundé and we are having report that almost 75 of them have been beaten and shot death.
On December 9 we received report that the military entered Molyko in Buea at about 2am and break students’ rooms and arrested close to 50 students and most of them have been shot death already. They decided to come at night to hide from the media. These incidents provoke the refusal to sing the national anthem in Mamfe by the population complaining that the killings are too much. All these and more they are doing is to scare the people of Southern Cameroon not to protest and strike.
In January there is going to be more strike actions like we have never seen before. We prefer to die all of us and all our brothers killed and in prison will be revenge. This is the current situation going on. We are one people let’s stand as one during these trying moment.
