It’s been more than 3 weeks since the government of Cameroon blocked the internet in the anglophone territories of the country. This is a direct crackdown on dissent, and a regional outcry can help break the blackout.

The government is afraid of social media -- Anglophone Cameroonians have been protesting against discrimination for not speaking French. The government has even threatened internet users with criminal penalties, including jail for years!

Let’s create a massive outcry across West Africa-- from Senegal to Nigeria -- demanding the African Union sanction the government of Cameroon until they restore internet for all it’s citizens. Add your name, then forward this to friends and family -- let’s make our call for internet freedom massive!
