This demonstration is a prompt response to recent killings in Cameroon orchestrated by the dictatorial regime of Paul Biya. The situation in Cameroon is not safe at all and is expected to become worse during the coming days.

Demonstrate Against Cameroon Regime and Deportations to Cameroon

Friday 7th March 2008 - 11:00am to 1:00pm
Cameroon Embassy

Demonstration called by the Cameroon Support Network (CSN), the Southern Cameroon National Council (SCNC) and the Cameroon Diaspora Cooperation (CDC).

"Violent protests spread to Yaoundé and other major cities following 24 Feb taxi strike over fuel price rises in Douala. Unrest comes amid rising living costs and after President Biya's Jan announcement of plan to extend 25-year rule through constitutional amendment. Biya called protests an attempted coup, vowed to use "all means" to restore order; at least 20 killed amid reports of heavy gunfire, looting and police tear gas."
