Leaders of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium, CACSC, have signed a release in which they declare a ghost town.
In the release with signatories including the President Barrister Agbor Felix Nkongho, Dr Fontem Neba of SYNES University of Buea and Wilfred Tassang of Cameroon Teachers Trade Union, they called on all inhabitants living in the North West and South West regions to stand up like one and embark on a sit-in strike action due to what they termed governments attitude to undermine the Peoples and to get schools start without solving the problems raised by teachers.
Part of the release read, “We must stand together and continue our peaceful resistance until the demands of the Lawyers and teachers tabled relating to our existence have been satisfactorily addressed.”
The Consortium is calling on all Teachers, Lawyers, Taxi Drivers, Commercial Bike riders, Business Operators and everyone to stay at home on Monday January 9, 2017.
The leaders are calling for a total shut down of schools, markets and businesses.
They have also called for No street marches, No Public demonstrations and No confrontation with the police.
The release comes few minutes after elites in North and South West regions in a joint communique called on parents to send their children to school come Monday January 9, 2017.
