On the name “Southern Cameroons”

Southern Cameroonians are citizens of the former British Southern Cameroons, currently North-West and South-West Regions of the Republic of Cameroon, sometimes referred to as “Anglophones” or “Ambazonians”. The Coalition has decided to use the United Nations recognized appellation: Southern Cameroons or Southern Cameroonians.

A Worsening Armed Conflict

3+ years of escalating Armed Conflict

12,000+ civilians killed

500+ Villages burnt down

> 900,000 Internally displaced persons

> 50,000 Registered Refugees

Why Organize an International Conference on the Armed Conflict in Southern Cameroons?

Since the outbreak of conflict in Cameroon prominent leaders such as His Eminence Christian Cardinal Tumi and His Lordship Justice Ayah Paul Abine have called for a conference to bring together all Southern Cameroonians to exchange views and establish a dominant position. The Government of Cameroon has unfortunately prevented the holding of the Anglophone General Conference. As the conflict escalates, it is clear that such a conference uniting Southern Cameroonians cannot take place in Cameroon thus the need to have a conference abroad in a partner country.

The Conference has two main goals:

  1. Engage all segments and professionals of Southern Cameroon origin to establish the majority view on the pathway to a permanent negotiated solution, and
  2. Develop a detailed framework for a robust post-conflict reconstruction.
