Unrest In Cameroon As Anglophones Declare 'Independence'

Witnesses say Soldiers shot dead at least eight people and wounded others in Cameroon’s restless English-speaking regions on Sunday during protests by activists calling for its independence from the majority Francophone nation.....





The separatists chose October 1, the anniversary of the official reunification of the anglophone and francophone parts of Cameroon, to declare independence for "Ambazonia", the name of the state they want to create. Since Last year, the anglophone minority has been protesting against perceived discrimination.


Authorities had banned all gatherings of more than four people, ordered bus stations, eateries and shops to shut and forbade movement between different parts of the English-speaking regions ahead of the protests. The government also ordered Cameroon’s border with Nigeria closed for the weekend.


The military, which is supposed to protect lives and property, has turned into our greatest nightmare,” said one Buea resident, who asked not to be identified out of fear of reprisal.

postponing plebiscite does not country any good.
Britain had its own plebiscite and put Scotland independence to rest.
Why do Nigeria, Cameroon and others opposing this?
