Take Action: End the Violence in Cameroon

Contact Congress to support rapid resolution of the Anglophone Conflict

The North-West and South-West regions shown in yellow are the locations of the violent conflict between separatists and the military


The security situation in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon continue to deteriorate. Over 2,000 people have been killed and more than 200 villages have been partially or completely burned due to the armed conflicts between separatist groups and the Cameroonian military.  More than 530,000 people have been internally displaced and about 50,000 people are now refugees.  The economic impact of the conflict has not only been devastating the Anglophone regions but the entire country.

Please contact your Senators and urge them to pass S.RES.292 calling on the Government of Cameroon and armed separatist groups to respect the human rights of all Cameroonian citizens, to end all violence, and to pursue an inclusive dialogue to resolve the conflict in the Northwest and Southwest regions.  Also contact your Representatives and thank them for passing a resolution for peaceful dialogue and unhindered access to humanitarian aid workers.  Ask Congress to continue to monitor the situation and support a rapid resolution of the conflict in Cameroon.
