Southern Cameroons Struggle: Why Women MUST Rise & Lead NOW!

Ade Nche in an article to BaretaNews explained the position of women in a revolution. He thinks it is time Southern Cameroons women rise up to lead the struggle. In these 5 points statement, he explained Why Women MUST Rise & Lead NOW!

1. Women revolutionaries in history have often made 100% success. When a colonial tax collector as Nwanyeruwa to count her goats and people so he could estimate her tax, she immediately meet women in her community and discuss the situation and 25,000 women all over the region hit the streets and the colonial government withdrew the decision and force many of the chiefs to resign. Leymah Gbowee, along with the women in Liberia, organized a peaceful movement of thousands of women (praying and crying at the capital city for 3 months) and succeeded in bringing an end to a Civil War which had killed more than 250,000 people in 14 years and Charles Taylor escaped to Ghana. In Egypt a 26yrs old girl Asmaa Mahfouz with four friends storm the Tahrir Square to protest against the Dictator Mubarak and their bold act pull out tenths of thousands of women which caused Africa strongest and biggest army to surrender and the dictator resigned.

2. Women are more vulnerable and suffer most during any struggle as they keep losing their husbands and children and are left to spend the rest of life in misery. The worst are mothers with children and kids to continue taking care of. One man killed equals to 7 mouths that will be starved in our context.

3. Women in times of war are needed to be protected more than men because they are the source of life. Their right to life and protection is more than that of men as such they are the best tools for a peaceful non-violent revolution for armless people. Killing one woman in a just cause who is peacefully demonstrating without arms is considered an act of genocide. Every woman is either a mother of kids or a mother with unborn children.

4. When a woman stands for the TRUTH, she can command thousands angels from heaven to descend and fight for her. Just imagine 20,000 women in both regions acting simultaneously against the colonial government of La Republic in front of the governors offices. There is no man that fell from heaven and all mothers are the same. Their coming together would definitely build an unimaginable aura that forms a shield that surpasses any weapon known to man. I challenge you that every religion and belief system is aware of the WOMAN POWER.

5. A man in any tradition whether armed or unarmed is considered armed by the military and every despotic government. Any physically fit matured man unarmed is a potential weapon in the eyes of any military. This is the sole reason why they must be killed when possible. If only one woman was shut during the past protest, the story would have been different in the eyes of the international community. The worst case scenario will be when a group of women rise without men and a single bullet is let out towards just one of them.

    [2]Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to aliens.(FRANCE /UN/BRITAIN )
    [3]We are orphans and fatherless, our mothers are as widows.
    [4]We have drunken our water for money; our wood is sold unto us.
    [5]Our necks are under persecution: we labour, and have no rest.
    [6]We have given the hand to the Egyptians,(la republique du cameroun ) and to the Assyrians( FRANCE ), to be satisfied with bread.
    [7]””Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.””
    [8]Servants have ruled over us: there is none that doth deliver us out of their hand. (DEUTERONOMY 28 : 68 )
    [9]We gat our bread with the peril of our lives because of the sword of the wilderness.(BIYA AND FRANCE)
    [10]Our skin was “”black”” like an oven because of the terrible famine.
    [11]They ravished the women in Zion(BUEA), and the maids in the cities of Judah.(BAMENDA)
    [12]Princes (OUR LEADERS)are hanged up by their hand: the faces of elders were not honoured. (FONS )
    [13]They took the young men to grind, (SLAVERY ) and the children fell under the wood.
    [14]The elders have ceased from the gate, (PASTORS/PRIEST ) the young men from their musick.(THEY FILL PRISON HOUSES )
    [15]The joy of our heart is ceased; our dance is turned into mourning.(GHOST TOWN )
    [16]The crown is fallen from our head: woe unto us, that we have sinned!( OUR COUNTRY SOUTHERN CAMEROONS TAKEN FROM US )
    [17]For this our heart is faint; for these things our eyes are dim. ( mourning )
    [18]Because of the mountain of Zion, which is desolate, the foxes LA REPUBLIQUE AND FRANCE) walk upon it.
    [19]Thou, O LORD, remainest for ever; thy throne from generation to generation.
    [20]Wherefore dost thou forget us for ever, and forsake us so long time?
    [21]Turn thou us unto thee, O LORD, and we shall be turned; renew our days as of old.
    [22]But thou hast utterly rejected us; thou art very wroth against us.
