Restoration Forces Deserve Better from Genuine Ambazonians
As the battle for the restoration of the independence of Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia rages on, Ambazonians at home and abroad must not forget to appreciate, support, respect and value the efforts of restoration forces who are standing and putting their lives in the frontline through leadership and in the battlefield. No one was prepared for this battle. Every Ambazonian is a victim of Mr. Biya’s arrogance and blood thirsty intentions.
It is therefore most important that the people constantly encourage and cheer those resisting La Republique’s AK 47 rifles with dane guns and have been succeeding despite the many challenges. Making a mockery, minimizing or under looking their efforts should not be a characteristic of any one who desires Freedom from the colonial fangs of the terrorist Yaoundé regime.
These are selfless gentlemen and women in the homeland, who have sacrificed their livelihoods and abandoned their families to fight the colonial regime in the streets and trenches. They deserve all the necessary respect and support from true Ambazonians. Unfortunately, the people have not given these foot soldiers the most needed cheers.
While some Ambazonians spent their time tireless working to see that they provide both financial, material and logistical support to the Restoration forces through their little contributions, others, who also desire the same freedom, have joined antirevolutionary agents by constantly making noise all over the social media, throwing confusion tantrums, trying to continuously cause division among revolutionary leaders and groups.
Some are desperately concen with promoting acts that stifle any effort that appear to bring understanding among different leaders with diverse opinions, strategies and ambitions. They are also busy exploiting different opportunities within the revolution to enrich themselves at the expense of those putting their lives on the slaughter stone of the colonial regime. The saddest thing about these group of Ambazonians is that they also want to be free from LRC.
Life is sweet, even in poverty. Certainly, there is no body who doesn’t desire to be alive and see a free Ambazonia. That is why even in slavery and hardship, humans still desire to be alive because when there is life, there is hope.
Consequently, for any individual who has decided to put his/her own life on the line for the freedom of others, it is a generous sacrifice that must not be taken for granted by any patriotic citizen or those who have refuse to put their own lives as a freedom sacrifice.
Already, many restoration forces have lost their lives in battle. A few day ago, six of them fell in battle in Boyo and Batibo. However, they did not fail to inflict casualties on the occupier before dying. Innocent citizens both young and old have also been ruthlessly massacred by the terrorist regime for no crime of theirs. Others died in the pains of raging flames. All these deaths, just because of one crime – they are Ambazonians.
As the revolution proceeds, BaretaNews at this juncture is challenging every Ambazonian, from all the leaders of different revolutionary groups, to followers and to the interim government of Ambazonia to prosecute this revolution with their true consciences. For the sake of the dead, whose spirits are still hovering over Ambaland seeking for freedom before they can rest in peace, the wounded lying in the hospitals, the deformed or handicap, the imprisoned, the refugees and IDPs, all actions in the name of Ambazonia must be carriedout for Ambazonia and for Ambazonians.
The diaspora in particular, has the responsibility to determine and define the direction of the history books about their role in this freedom struggle. They must honour, appreciate and generously support the sacrifice of the gallant freedom fighters and also with all the necessary resources – spiritual, moral and financial resources.
These are the only ways to tell the fallen heroes that they did not die in vain.
