Between Ambazonia and La Republique du Cameroun; Who is Afraid of Negotiations?

In a press statement released after his recent audience with the colonial blood sucking President of La Republique du Cameroun (LRC), Ambassador Barlerin of the United States, is quoted to have said in relation to the present conflict that;

 “I discussed with the President our view that the two sides in the conflict are simply not listening to each other.”

Obviously, the two sides referring to here are the Ambazonian revolutionary leadership and the rogue regime of LRC. But to what extent is this assertion true? Between the two conflicting parties, who has been ready for dialogue and who has been afraid of dialogue.?

It is evidently clear from the records of the commencement of this revolution, (which started as a mere teachers and lawyers strike) that the party that has simply refused to listen to the language of dialogue is the colonial regime of LRC, under Paul Biya. In fact, if the situation metamorphosed from a simple strike action to an armed revolutionary conflict, it is because, the belligerent party or aggressor, which is LRC has completely ignore the cry for frank and inclusive dialogue by Ambazonians. The word “dialogue” in Mr. Biya’s dictionary has a completely different meaning than in the dictionary of Ambazonians.

The colonial regime arrested and jailed the leadership of the Consortium for eight months because, they saw themselves as superior beings that could not descend so low to talk with mere citizens (even though they had actually started listening to each other). That is why they first of all declared outrightly that there was no “Anglophone Problem.”

The decision to ban the Consortium and the Southern Cameroons National Council (SCNC) after arresting the leaders and causing others to flee, was because the colonial regime was and is still arrogantly proud, as dialogue to them meant/mean tolerating rebellion from probably insignificant two cubes of sugar.

The international community, notably the UN, the African Union and other international organizations have repeatedly called for an all-inclusive dialogue between the colonialists and Southern Cameroons stakeholders. But because the regime has ben afraid of an inclusive dialogue, they have always resorted to their own form of partisan dialogue.

The dying Yaoundé regime declared war on Ambazonians because, they depended and still depend on the argument of force rather than the force of argument, which is through dialogue, to address the outstanding issues. They have continued to empty their treasury and equally extorting money from innocent Ambazonians to fund this senseless war. They keep doing all these because, as they claim, they cannot dialogue with terrorists and secessionists.

The regime spent a fortune in successfully kidnapping His Excellency Julius Ayuk-Tabe and his team, and allegedly deported them to LRC because, they were and have never been ready to dialogue with the Interim Government of Ambazonia. In their own mind, how could they be dialoguing with terrorists and slaves?

Ambazonians did not plan for conflict. Ambazonians, for 56 years of slavery have never thought of liberating themselves through an arm conflict. In fact, that is why the motto of the leading homebased group that preached an independence Ambazonia over the years, was; “the FORCE of ARGUMENT and NOT the ARGUMENT of FORCE.” It is a clear evidence that the people of Ambazonia have never been afraid of dialogue or listen to the colonial regime in Yaoundé.

At the beginning of the revolution, the leadership, as it transited from one stage to another maintained that it was a non-violent movement. Even when Ambazonians were massacred on the DECEMBER 8, 2016 in Bamenda and Kumba, September 22, 2017 and October 1, 2017 all over Ambazonia, the people still showed a lot of restrain.

There is no individual that can continue to restrain forever, when his/her people are being massacred to extinction. The declaration of war on Ambazonians by the colonial Paul Biya, was and is a clear signal that dialogue has failed. Ambazonians cannot therefore sit and watch themselves extinct because they want to be nonviolent. What happened to the right to self-defense?

Consequently, whatever the restoration forces are doing right now on ground, they are simply defending themselves and the people from the genocidal activities currently being perpetuated on them by the terrorist regime and its forces. They did not bargain for it but were simply forced into it. They protested peacefully with peace plants and were massacred, some decided to sleep in their homes and were still killed. Therefore, instead of being killed like a chicken, it is better to be killed at least while defending themselves.

All though the revolution, Ambazonians have always insisted on the need for a frank and inclusive dialogue on the root causes of the conflict. The interim government has on several occasions, given out conditions precedent for dialogue and has also repeatedly expressed the need for the mediation of the international community in such dialogue.

On their part, the rogue regime has preached dialogue largely on paper than in practice, refusing to recognize the revolutionary leaders, while applying divide and rule tactics. That is why it is currently in a war as its own solution to the conflict. It is now clear who has been and is afraid of dialogue. Why afraid of dialogue if you have a genuine case?

BaretaNews cannot therefore fully agree with the position of the US Ambassador that both sides have simply not been listening to each other. LRC, the aggressor has completely refused to listen to Ambazonians. In fact, as the belligerent party, LRC is supposed to be the one to declare a ceasefire and indicate her readiness for negotiations.

At this juncture, Ambazonians seek a negotiated settlement of the conflict, that would see the two parties conclude on the terms of peaceful separations, payment of reparations (if any), and leaving side by side as neighbors.

    biya will never accept dialogue the Ambazonian way

    biya’s corrupt lrc will never accept dialogue the way Ambazonians think. Lrc method of dialogue is brutal repression of Ambazonians for asking peacefully for a redress of their issues. For over 56 years of black on black colonization of Ambazoni by lrc, their method of subjugating Ambazonians has consistently reflected rapes, abductions, torture and incarcerations as her own method of dialogue. To biya dialogue already took place and continues by the wanton killing of innocent Ambazonians.

    THE BIYA LRC WAY: KILL AMBAZONIANS ANY WAY POSSIBLE = biya’s dialogue

    biya’s military rape, torture of Ambazonian mothers and girls every day in Ambazonian territory = biya’s dialogue.

    biya’s military abduction or innocent Ambazonians, torture and incarcerating them in lrc prisons = biya’s dialogue

    biya’s burning of old people in their homes in Ambazonia = biya’s dialogue.

    bya’s abduction of the IG (ambazonia) and keeping them incommunicado in lrc jails = biya’s dialogue

    bya’s burning of homes and destruction of Ambazonian crops so they can die of exposure, want and starvation = biya’s dialogue.

    Total annihilation of Ambazonia by biya’s forces = biya’s complete and successful dialogue.

    THE AMBAZONIA WAY: LOVE, RESPECT, UNDERSTANDING AND CONCERTATION = Ambazonia IG dialogue

    Why is biya killing innocent Ambazonians? What have they done wrong? = Ambazonia IG dialogue.

    Why is biya burning Ambazonian people in their homes and sending many on exile? = Ambazonian IG dialogue.

    Why is biya abducting, raping, torturing, killing, and incarcerating Ambazonians for simply asking questions about his purported union with Ambazonia? = Ambazonia IG dialogue

    Why is biya down playing the fact that Ambazonia has never been part of lrc? What has biya to proof that cameroun united with Ambazonia? = Ambazonia IG dialogue.

    Why did biya declare war on Ambazonia and continues to kill innocent Ambazonians to this day = Ambazonia IG dialogue.

    HOW MANY AMBAZONIANS WILL BIYA KILL BEFORE HE UNDERSTANDS DIALOGUE THE AMBAZONIAN WAY?

    FOR NOW AMBAZONIANS, MUST DEFEND THEMSELVES AND BOYCOTT ANYTHING la republique du cameroon in Ambazonia. Resist biya any and every way possible.

      Take solace my dear comrade. In life nothing last forever. From the era of the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s that I grew up with Ahidjo planted there by the French as leader of East Cameroon and later of the so-called federal Cameroon, there was an aura of deity that he cultivated and surrounded himself in. That led to underlings of his cabinet including the secretary General at the presidency and later Prime minister Paul Biya, the (CNU) party and indeed the entire nation living in absolute fear of the mbororo nordist. When his unexpected demise came, thanks to the subtle machination of the same French who placed him there, myself and the world was shocked at what we thought was impossible. Today his remains lies among commoners in far away Darkar, Senegal, refused any repatriation and/or accorded any honors befitting an ex-head of State. By who? The Paul Biya who Ahidjo handed the presidency to.

      The other day Mr. United States Ambassador used the words “legacy” in his meet with Bi mvondo. Interpret it any way you want. The definetion of legacy stands as that which is/shall be left behind to family or the nation when one is gone. Question: how long will Biya continue to steer his murderous ship of state to the anguish of Southern Cameroonians/Ambazonians? Answer: Definitely NOT FOR EVER.

      In decades past, Khartoum laughed at the agitation of the south for equality and fair treatment in that country. They shouted the same cliche, “one and indivisible Sudan”. Today, the history of two independent sovereign Sudans is one for the books.

      Again comrade Sunshine, take solace, for NOTHING LAST FOREVER. NOT even Paul Barthélemy Biya’a bi Mvondo.

    Mr. Mbueh,

    I note with respect the soothing words from your experience with these lunatic presidents of lrc.

    The deep pain I have is for the many including my family that live in the bushes, killed, raped, tortured, incarcerated, looted with their homes and villages burned by biya’s and is soldiers. Does the military paid by our tax money and at the command of this coward have to destroy the lives of these many Ambazonians? My pain is so deep that I feel sick to my stomach each time I think about this barbaric treatment on the resilient people of Ambazonia.

    I can’t understand why the AU, UN, EU, France and Britain watch this genocide gleefully??? What wrong have Ambazonians committed to lrc and the world to be treated with such repression? The remnants of Ambazonians remaining after biya’s killing spree today shall never surrender to biya’s lrc evil.

    WE SALUTE ALL OUR AMBAZONIAN DEFENSE FORCES. STAY STRONG, BE UNITED AND RESOLUTE. biya the coward/fool will surely be brought down soon!!!

    Biya will not accept any dialogue but the second line behind him have to think twice. As more brutal the repression of the regime as more Ambafighters and as more international isolation. Biya will die on short term. Then those behind him have to look for ways to survive. As history taught us every dictatorial system which is centered around a single person will immediately collapses if that person dies. The Americans have well understood. They want to avoid a Somali scenario. And prefer a transition even within the ruling CPDM crime syndicate. The unity Cameroon praised Yesterday is fake. Cameroon will brake into many pieces. That will be Paul Biyas legacy.

    the majority of patriotic SCs will never trust french Cameroonian with any meaningful dialogue,it will be another failed promises lead by lrc to our peers,at this stage of the revolution anyone who is asking for meaningful dialogue is suggesting the UN negotiate, acknowledge the Independence of Southern Cameroons,anything other than that is non negotiable, the revenge will never end util biya and his mafia give up control of the SW/NW regions by force,the war will continue, Cameroon is not one and has never been in this fake French union,Scs are patriotic,have two different cultures,language and way of thinking, any SCs who stand in the way of SCs independence must be killed

    Oh Yes, Cameroon has never been one and she shall never be one. The historical and geographical documents are there to prove this. No amount of lies and manipulation cooked up by the french leeches and designed for implemented by their slave boys will ever change the facts. Worst of all, the senseless massacre of our people are wounds that shall never heal.
