Information reaching alafnet.com says West Cameroonians in canada have submitted a petition to the Canadian government to put diplomatic pressure on the government of La Republic du Cameroun (LRC)to start negotiations with the leaders of West Cameroon in good faith.
Initiated by Damia Mubemsembom from London, Ontario, on January 11, 2017, The petition has been approved and published on the website of the Canadian Parliament and is open for signature until May 11, 2017, at 3:58 p.m. (EDT).
Every West Cameroonian and sympathizer in Canada has been advised to sign this petition and share information about the existence of this petition which was approved by the Canadian 42nd Parliament because during the months of October and November 2016, there have been several reports that in Cameroon, police and military are not respecting the peaceful protests which are taking place and are using unlawful force and brutality in efforts to suppress demonstrations.
These reports include instances of the beating of non-violent protesters, including Common Law lawyers, teachers, and university students. There are reports that civilians have died, with many more injured and jailed without any due process. Social media is awash with images of what the so-called “security forces” are doing: lawyers have been assaulted and their wigs and gowns confiscated, university students have been beaten with batons, forced to roll in mud, and imprisoned, and citizens have been beaten in the streets.
This lead to some citizens and residents of Canada, calling upon the Government of Canada to put diplomatic pressure on Cameroon to stop the violence used on peaceful protesters and to start negotiating in good faith, respecting the demands of the West Cameroonian leaders to reach peaceful resolutions to the situation.
