The country of Cameroon is on the brink of a Civil War, yet nobody seems to know about it. Long story short, the country is split between 20% native English speakers (i.e. Anglophones) and 80% native French. The Anglophones have been calling for equal rights as the French, and this tension has led to over 1,000 deaths and 150,000+ others forced to leave their homes for safer regions.
I arrived here in Douala (Cameroon’a biggest city) a few days ago and I’ve been learning about the current political situation, and it’s a lot worse than I imagined. In a city called Buea, which is in the English-speaking region, recent fighting has been taking place. I ventured inside that area, passing numerous police checkpoints who were heavily armed, and I saw burned down cars and bullets on the ground. It was bizarre.
This video is a brief overview of what Cameroon is facing right now. Please share to spread awareness, because no violence should go unnoticed. Have you ever heard about Cameroon’s civil war?
