Cameroon Journal, Bamenda – Anglophone youths appear resolve to deliver themselves from the decades of slavery and marginalization from Paul Biya’s regime. In spite of calls for people to remain indoors by leaders of the Monday’s protest movement, mammoth crowds turned out in Bamenda and assembled at the Bamenda famous Liberty Square literary pushing state Police give up their positions.
The protesters in Bamenda brought along a purple-white coffin, taking an oath upon it to die for the freedom Southern Cameroons.
One of the protesters who was there posted on Facebook;
“Bamenda don red! The strike action has taken another turn. Tell your family members in Bamenda to stay indoors. A journalist by name, Mancho BBC, and his friend are at it NOW at City Chemist Round About!!!
They have blocked the City Chemist roundabout with this coffin tied to the top of a car. They say they are ready to die for change. “Enough is enough,” they are shouting! They say the Anglophone Cameroonians have suffered for way too long. Bad state of poorly constructed roads, marginalization, etc. They have come with their own coffin, prepared to die for change! Na so the guy dem talk ooo, no be me I talk!!!”
Our reporters on the field say so far the strike has been peaceful and very successful.
However, a number of schools opened their doors in Buea and Limbe. Bilingual Grammar School Molyko and Government Technical High School Molyko are open with few students and teachers on campus, but no serious classes, the Cameroon Journal gathered.
Stay tuned for more developments.
