The leader of the Southern Cameroons National Council has called on Anglophones in the diaspora to take swift and decisive global action that will bring pressure to bear on the Francophone regime in Yaounde. Nfor Ngalla was reacting to news of the arrest of the leaders of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium yesterday in Buea. Below is the original text from the SCNC Chairman as emailed to us early this morning.
Having been wounded gravely by the strikes and the GHOST TOWNS GHOST COUNTRY, the annexationist regime in Yaoundé has today imposed a ban on the SCNC and the Consortium. The proconsuls in our land are empowered to arrest and detain the leaders. News reaching me from Buea have it that the President Bala Agbor Nkongho and Secretary Dr. Fontem of the Consortium have been arrested this evening by gendarmes.
In this circumstance I am calling for global action at all UN Offices and UK EMBASSIES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. ALL SOUTHERN CAMEROONIANS IN UK SHOULD MOVE TO 10 DOWNING STR. AND STAY THERE TILL THE PM MAKES A POSITIVE STATEMENT. THOSE IN NEW YORK AND STATES CLOSE TO THE UN IN NEW YORK SHOULD MOVE THERE AND CALL FOR UN IMMEDIATE INTERVENTION TO AVOID A BLOOD BATH. THE REST IN USA SHOULD BE IN WASHINGTON DC IN FRONT OF THE WHITE HOUSE CALLING ON USA PROMPT INTERVENTION AND RELEASE OF ALL SOUTHERN CAMEROONIANS UNDER DETENTION AND TORTURE.
YOUR FAILURE TO ACT AS PRESCRIBED IS BURYING THE STRUGGLE AND WORSE SLAVERY FOR SOUTHERN CAMEROONIANS. MORE ARRESTS WILL FOLLOW TOMORROW. ACT NOW TO AVOID THE WORSE FOR OUR PEOPLE AND NATION.
