When English-speaking civilians began protesting discriminatory government policies in 2016, government security forces cracked down violently. Now, Cameroon's security forces and armed separatist groups from the English-speaking population are fighting. In a crisis that began over linguistic and cultural rights and identity, each side is targeting civilians it perceives as disloyal. With more than 3,000 people killed and over 700,000 forced to leave their homes, civilians in Cameroon’s Anglophone regions are at immediate risk of mass atrocities. Meanwhile, in Cameroon’s Far North region, civilians are being targeted in a conflict between Boko Haram insurgents and state security forces. Available in French (Disponible en français.)
