Members of the outlawed Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium, CACSC, last week, called off the ghost town operations which were scheduled to run from August 14 to August 16.
According to a release from the Consortium members, the three days ghost town was postponed to give citizens the liberty to celebrate the Feast of Assumption on Tuesday, August 15.
The members say full civil disobedience through ghost towns in the Northwest and Southwest Regions, will begin on August 21, 2017
Earlier, on August 6, the members of the outlawed consortium had extended the ghost town operations ongoing in the Northwest and Southwest Regions to three days. According to the release, “the extension is intended to stall the resumption of schools and to fast-track the drive they are leading in collaboration with the newly created Southern Cameroons Governing Council to restore the independence of Southern Cameroons.” They note that the special measures will last until Wednesday, October 4, 2017.
The press release, in part, reads: “We, leaders of the various trade unions and civil society organisations that make up the Consortium are also calling on all Southern Cameroonians/Ambazonians wherever to take cognizance of the situation on the ground and instill in one another the consequent need for greater sacrifice and commitment to the struggle for the restoration of the independence of our country.
