Demonstration Alert – U. S. Embassy Yaounde Cameroon (January 26, 2019)
Location: Yaounde and Douala
Event: The Embassy is aware of ongoing protest activity in Yaoundé and Douala, with injuries reportedly inflicted by law enforcement.
Actions to Take:
- Avoid large gatherings and demonstrations, as even peaceful demonstrations may quickly turn violent.
- Monitor local news stations.
- Remain aware of your surroundings and keep a low profile.
- Always carry proof of your legal presence in Cameroon, such as a U.S. passport with visa, or a residency card. Since Cameroon does not recognize dual citizenship, U.S. citizens of Cameroonian descent should never attempt to use a Cameroonian passport or identification card.
