Event

Anglophone separatist leaders have called for a "ville morte" (general strike) in the English-speaking Northwest and Southwest regions, on Tuesday, July 30, in support for inmates, including Anglophone separatists and political opposition members, who clashed with guards and set buildings on fire at the Kondengui prison in Yaoundé on July 22-23.

Context

Cameroon's English-speaking Northwest and Southwest regions remain tense due to an ongoing separatist movement and conflict between armed groups and the government. Strikes, unrest, and related incidents of violence have become common since November 2016 and have escalated since October 2017.

Advice

Individuals in Cameroon are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests or large gatherings due to the risk of associated violence, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
