Confirmed reports indicate that the United Nations Security Council will be in Cameroon tomorrow the 2nd of March 2017. BaretaNews gathered that the delegation consists of some members of the UN security Council with a mission to follow up the ongoing crisis that has plagued Southern Cameroons since the end of November 2017. They will be carrying out investigations in the regions affected. A struggle that has been for over five months today deserves such attention.
As a matter of fact, it will bring to limelight the realities that have been on the ground within this period of struggle. In view of this, Mark Bareta noted that it is an opportunity to reveal the truth. He added that the Cameroun Foreign Minister while addressing the UN Human Rights Council said all grievances of lawyers and teachers have been purportedly resolved, referred to the people of Southern Cameroons as extremists and that government actions have been impacting greatly in solving the problems raised. This information provided by the Minister, Mark emphasised are not true.
To strengthen the struggle, Mark Bareta advised that the Twitter strategy should be effectively and efficiently used by the people of Southern Cameroons. He called on all those on twitter to tweet and tag the UN Secretary General (@antonioguterres, @UN), as well as the Human Rights Council, informing them that as a people, self-determination is an inalienable right and the people of Southern Cameroon have a right to their self-determination.
Also, Tapang Ivo calls on the people of Southern Cameroons to be hopeful. He said that it starts with domestic pressure, to international pressure and finally the long awaited change. He stated clearly that “the UN Security Council is no joke. Cameroon is not even a permanent member of the council, talk less of an observatory member. Their coming to Cameroon signals an end in sight for the hostile regime. Be very hopeful and be very focused. Never ever did we have such a massive pressure from outside”, especially following the arrest of Barrister Agbor Balla, pioneer leader of the Consortium.
Since the uprising started, Southern Cameroonians at home and in the Diaspora have remained resolute for a just course. It should be noted that this mission adds credence to the Southern Cameroons struggle.
