[Friday In Black] Kah Walla Calls For Non-Violent Nationwide Protest

In a press conference on Tuesday September 29, Kah Walla, leader of the CPP political party, also member of Stand Up For Cameroon called for a nationwide protest against arbitrary arrest and violence in Cameroon

“Let us come together as oppressed Cameroonians without divides of tribe, language or culture to put an end to our oppressor President Paul Biya, his friends and family members,” Kah Walla said

Walla asked that the protest scheduled for October 2, 2020 be peaceful and non-violent.

“This Friday October 2 is a special Friday in Black. Cameroonians should wear black and go about their activities.

This is a nonviolent action but with a powerful message of indignation and change in the eyes of national and international community,” she said, calling on Cameroonians to “join #FridayInBlack to say NO to illegal & arbitrary arrests” and protesting against peaceful protest being regarded as a crime

This comes after a nationwide protest against Biya was called on September 22 by opposition leader Maurice Kamto.

During and after the protests, more than 593 people were arrested including 4 members of Stand for Cameroon.
