These displaced families remain at risk and are currently experiencing starvation, diseases and political persecution, as they are not guaranteed basic rights in their own country.
This project continues to affect more than 200000 families, children, women, men, youths from more than 28 villages in Meta and neighboring English-speaking people who are still hiding in the bushes and who have escaped to other areas in Cameroon including seeking refugee status in neighboring Nigeria and other countries of the world, who have fled their country in fear of their lives; and more than 500,000 internally displaced persons of "Ambazonia" fleeing the genocide by French Cameroon which in 2017 embarked on "scorched earth" policy, wherein hundreds of thousands of "Ambazonia" villages have been razed to the ground by French Cameroon soldiers, after looting and burning of property.
To say the least, these conditions are unbearable and not conducive to any kind of economy activity in "Ambazonia". There are no functional schools, courts, or administrative offices in" Ambazonia" as we share this update report.
As you may already know in 2016 the common law lawyers of the Republic of Cameroon, who are residents of Former British Southern Cameroon aka Ambazonia, embarked on a general and indefinite strike to protest marginalization and rampart discrimination against English speaking residence of the NW and SW Republic of Cameroon in all walks of life, in particular, education, law and administration, just to mention a few areas of concern by the people.
This drastic action was due to the fact that the lawyers were snubbed, brutalized and tortured on the streets, after submitting a manifesto to the government of Cameroon requesting a return to the 1972 constitution of the country, to enable them to practice common law, and establish "rule of law" in the country, which is their inalienable rights based on their heritage as a former colony of Great Britian, who voted in 1961 to achieve independence by joining French Cameroon or the Republic of Cameroon which coincidentally is the name of the two states now.
