International attention for the situation in Anglophone Cameroon
– 15 March 2017.
The Executive Committee of the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES) have sent a letter to the UN, the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights, and to the President of the Republic of Cameroon, expressing their utmost concern about the troubling situation in Cameroon.
As Anglophone Cameroon remains cut off from the Internet, reports from the media as well as from some members of the IUAES indicate that the human rights of the country’s Anglophone citizens, concentrated in the Northwest and Southwestern regions of the country, are being horrifically violated.
