This petition had 402 supporters
Today, March 17 2017, marks 60 days since Cameroonian government abducted and detained several leaders in Cameroon. Today also marks 60 days since the Cameroon government intentionally cut the internet in North West and South West Regions of Cameroon.
Fresh from a prior successful petition to US Congress on the Cameroon crisis, the family of Barrister Felix Agbor Nkongho connected with the Cameroon American Council seeking to build visibility on the unjust detention of their brother and the other detainees by the Biya regime of Cameroon. Mr. Nkongho is a Human Rights lawyer and a 2006 alumnus of Notre Dame Law School in Indiana.
So, after a series of multi-pronged campaign tools, including social media, congressional visits in DC and across the US, today, March 17th 2017, the Cameroon American Council created a multi-disciplinary coalition to fight the Cameroon crisis.
We assembled a dynamic group of diverse leaders to deliberate lessons learned from past endeavors, struggles and campaigns such as Arab Spring, Civil Rights, Ebola Advocacy, Immigrant Justice, Digital/Tech Equity, Human Rights, African Affairs, Global Health, Black Lives Matter, Human Rights.
The leaders at today's strategy session included:
SylvieBello (Cameroon) - Founder/CEO Cameroon American Council
Mosadeqq Hobrara (Libya) -Conflict Resolution Researcher at Columbia University
Fatmata Koroma (Sierra Leone) Media and Jounalist- Kushe Magazine
Talib Saber - Lawyer and Black liberation movement/NBUF
Theodore Ngatchou (Cameroon) - DC Francophone Community Network
Jason Nichols -Professor of African American History at University of Maryland
Sally Cherry- Global Medical Technologist
Alain Coomlan Tchegnon (Benin) - Media/Former CAC African Congressional Fellow
Michael Johnson- Tech Entrepreneur and CEO of PreneurHub
John Chichester - Small Business Owner with business partners in Cameroon
These leaders are calling on Members of Congress with Indiana ties and with Notre Dame University ties to think about one of their own, a fine product of Hoosier education, Mr. Felix Agbor Balla Nkongho.
Calling on Members of Congress with Indiana ties and with Notre Dame University ties to make a public statement urging the government of Cameroon, that with today as Day 60, Cameroon should #BringBackOurInternet and to #FreeNkongho
