Coalition For Dialogue and Negotiations Condemns Threats Against Toronto Convention Delegates

By Augustine Nyuykongi

The Coalition for Dialogue and Negotiations, CDN has published a statement condemning threats directed towards some delegates of the International Forum to end the Anglophone Crisis that held in Toronto, Canada last month. 

According to the statement released by the CDN on November 11, “Some delegates, especially those who traveled from the Southern Cameroons and other parts of Cameroon have faced threats of violence and death from certain elements as a result of their attendance.”

As the Coalition for Dialogue and Negotiations condemned the threats against the delegates, the statement also read “these delegates exercised their duty to come together to set a path for collaboration among frontline groups as expressed by the vast majority of Southern Cameroonians and the International community.”

The CDN also called for “restraint from all Southern Cameroonian groups, including those who abstained from the retreat, and urge every other group to respect the freedom of association of every Southern Cameroonian.”

The forum, held in Canada from October 29, 2021, to November 01, 2021, was attended by major Anglophone, Secessionists, and Religious leaders such as Reverend Pastor Samuel Fonki, Barrister Agbor Balla, Professor Carlson Anyangwe, and Mark Bareta.

This forum organized by the CDN aimed to seek a peaceful resolution to the ongoing Anglophone crisis in Cameroon. Amongst other things discussed at the forum were effective school resumption, and how to handle future lockdowns in the Anglophone Regions.
