Cameroon has been in the throes of a bloody conflict in the English-speaking regions since 2016. It is a conflict over political, cultural rights and identity.  In 2016, lawyers and teachers from the English-speaking regions protested the gradual erosion of the Common Law and the Anglo-Saxon system of education practiced in that part of the country.  The crisis escalated in 2017 following the ban of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium (CACSC); The arrest of the consortium leaders and the declaration of independence of a new state ‘Ambazonia’ by a group of separatist leaders who had emerged from these grievances.
