Ambazonia progress and power.
“Hail! Hail! Hail this land of glory!”
Six years ago Ambazonia was a fringe idea and a word used by a small collection of people. There was a debate even among those people whether it was better to stick to “Southern Cameroons” or “Former British Southern Cameroons” or use the “less familiar” “Ambazonia”. Today we are no longer debating the name. We know our legal righteousness. We know our moral righteousness. We have reclaimed our dignity.
“We, the Ambazonians, pledge our loyalty!”
In this write up I will attempt to get us to take a positive stock of the progress and power of Ambazonia bearing in mind how much psychological attack we the Ambazonians are withstanding. That we do not even know we are under such attack, makes it even more remarkable that we are withstanding it. The truth is Ambazonia is doing the job for us. Ambazonia is protecting us as a nation should protect its citizens. All around the globe we are holding our heads high and savouring the dignity that once eluded us when we would hear the phrase “but I thought Cameroun is a francophone country”!
This week when that assertion was made at the Commonwealth games in Birmingham #Birmingham2022 it was true and valid! As the presenters announced LRC athletes in the opening ceremony, they announced that Cameroun is “an odd example of a francophone country which is in the Commonwealth.” All I can say to any LRC functionary who provided this gem to the BBC is “Thank You!”. How long have we been trying to establish our separateness from LRC. We look forward to our participation if we deem it in our interest to apply to join!
“Allegiance to our heroes who bore the land with their blood”
Our fora are flooded with clumsy suggestive write-ups to make us question our commitment and accuse each other. We pick them up and spread them further with our own magnifications and single-person witness statements, some of them third-hand quotes. And yet Ambazonia has only gotten stronger. LRC functionaries and lackeys now accept and use the name with the correct spelling – which is more than can be said for their use of the names of their “head of government” at the start of “his government”! Renowned diplomates are using the name routinely, as in without supplementary explanations or Southern Cameroons in brackets. As per the foregoing regarding #Birmingham2022, internationally renowned and authoritative media house of the calibre of the BBC acknowledge our separateness from LRC! They no longer mention us as an appendage to French Cameroun!
Ambazonians continue to express their choice weekly in quiet dignified observation of meditative “country Sunday”. LRC has tried to inflict all sorts of pain, offer inducements and bribes, threatened livelihoods, threatened and applied violence and non of these have dissuaded the masses. If anything these LRC efforts have validated the righteousness of Ambazonia. Ambazonians have come to value and treasured their sacrifice for their nation and the dignity that the nation is giving them.
“You shall live in plenty, meeting our needs!”
Enter the psycholgical effort! It used to be called propaganda in olden times and consisted blatant slanted messages with a clear characteristic designed to raise the morale of one side while sapping that of the other. It was easily indentifiable as it could be easily sourced, that is, it did not take much to tell where it had come from. For one thing, propagandists did not bother to disguise who they were, but rather concentrated on the message. These days it is heavily disguised and because of the prevalence of social media and the relative lack of cost it is more aand more shrouded as it propagates. By the time a message has been forwarded five times, it is practically impossible to determine its source or its purpose. But that only makes it more effective as it engages most people in debating and propagating it – each propagation lending more plausibility as it appears to come, implicitly endorsed, by our “contacts”!
“Ambazonia, Land of Freedom!”
Our reminder to deal with this psych ops is to remember the fundamentals.
We are Ambazonians from Ambazonia, a UN recognised territory with international boundaries.
We had no army or leadership when LRC decided to launch a war against us. Ironically in so doing validating our status as a separate nation. LRC helped define our boundaries by targeting us for the internet blackout. They validate and define our borders by giving us the nickname NOSO and subjecting our citizens to the treatments they do… including the special treatment as the only place in the world where soldiers fire live rounds into school-run traffic or burn down villages with pregnant women and children – and repeat the dose!
The people of Ambazonia now accept they are Ambazonian and express that weekly.
The people of Ambazonia are decolonising their minds in small but significant steps. Even when they study under LRC they know they are just keeping up with the international knowledge competition. Increasingly Ambazonia is running community schools, which are the genesis of our next step in decolonization.
We have many who are putting their lives on the line to defend Ambazonia for zero pay! How much more does anyone need to “prove” the persistence and resilience of a state! Ambazonia gives her citizens dignity and her citizens like that dignity and love their nation.
“And your children shall be like the stars above”
Collaboration! Ambazonians who know they are Ambazonian should collaborate with Ambazonia! Build the bridges that will speed up our liberation.
Some of us, including even those who know this psych ops is going on, are occasionally down-hearted.
The solution is to have a look at the Anthem and the Flag each morning…
AND REMEMBER MOST OF THE NEGATIVE FORWARDS EVEN FROM YOUR CONTACTS ORIGINATE FROM LRC’s AGENTS. DELETE THEM! THEY DO NOT AFFECT OUR RESTORATION.
“The Most High God is the Watchman of our Nation”
Ambazonia! You are A-Okay!
