United Nations Human Rights Council - Restore the internet in North and South West Region of Cameroon.

Why this is important: The internet is a basic human right which all governments need to respect.

We hope the Cameroon government can bring back the internet to the people.

The citizens of North West and South West Region of Cameroon for the past 3 months have been protesting against marginalisation. The internet and Facebook have been one of the successful ways to protest against the government and for citizens to express their grievances. On the 18th of January the government disrupted the internet access in these regions. So now the people are under an internet government blockade which clearly infringes into the peoples right to the freedom of expression covered under article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and also a violation of article 19, paragraph 3, of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Furthermore, families are worried because they cannot communicate properly and be in touch with the global world.
