Akata village, Cameroon Occupation Forces Burn Schools.

In the heart of Ambazonia, the land once filled with the laughter of children echoing through school halls, now stands charred remnants of educational institutions ravaged by the brutality of Cameroon’s occupation forces. Akata village, a symbol of resilience and hope, has been transformed into a grim reminder of the horrors inflicted upon innocent civilians by those meant to protect them.

June 2019 marked a dark chapter in the history of Fako State, Ambazonia, as Cameroon launched a series of vicious attacks on unsuspecting civilians. The peaceful inhabitants of Ambazonia, seeking nothing but the right to self-determination and freedom, were met with a ruthless display of force by the occupying regime. Schools, once sanctuaries of knowledge and enlightenment, became targets of destruction, leaving behind a trail of ashes and despair.

As the flames engulfed the classrooms and playgrounds, the echoes of children’s cries merged with the crackling of burning structures. Innocent lives were caught in the crossfire of political agendas, their dreams and aspirations shattered in a matter of moments. The scars of physical injuries were compounded by the trauma of witnessing such senseless violence in their own communities.

The brutality of Cameroon’s occupation forces knows no bounds, as they continue to unleash terror on the peaceful people of Ambazonia. The very individuals entrusted with maintaining law and order have become perpetrators of heinous crimes against humanity. The international community’s silence only emboldens the oppressors, granting them impunity to further their reign of terror.

Innocent civilians, including women and children, bear the brunt of this conflict, forced to flee their homes in search of safety and refuge. The world must not turn a blind eye to the atrocities unfolding in Ambazonia. It is a stark reminder of the urgent need for global solidarity and action to hold accountable those responsible for such egregious violations of human rights.

The burning schools of Akata village stand not only as physical ruins but also as a testament to the indomitable spirit of the Ambazonian people, who refuse to be silenced in the face of oppression. Their resilience echoes across the world, beckoning humanity to stand together against tyranny and injustice.
