Honourable Members of Parliament, The Representatives of The People of West Cameroon.

Right Honourable Members, Dear Colleagues

SUBJECT: HISTORICAL MOMENT TO STAND TOGETHER FOR THE PEOPLE OF WEST CAMEROON.

I have chosen this dark moment in our history to write to you from exile, following the vicious man-hunt to put me in chains and an attempt on my life, by a government that believes the people of West Cameroon are a lower cast of humans who must be kept in bondage and servitude.

This is your moment in history in which all of you without exception, must stand together in the name of the suffering, oppressed and struggling people of West Cameroon! Our people have been mistreated, humiliated, tortured, jailed, exiled and others killed: merely for peacefully asking for their basic fundamental rights as a people with a distinct cultural heritage and a dignified way of life.

They have endured systematic and traumatic abuse for over half a century and we all can testify that they have had enough! As the representatives of the people that you are, you have witnessed in each of your constituencies, the collective will and the dogged determination of our people to resist oppression in order to have a voice and a place in their own land.

Our children and their teachers have been out of school for months! Our lawyers have been out of court for much longer! The general masses from every village to every town have joined the struggle to take back our freedom! Our brothers and sisters in the diaspora have fought and struggled along with the people in every way imaginable! The world has taken notice that our people are in bondage and in various ways expressed support for them. You their representatives, are the ONLY group left that has not supported the people in their desperate hour of need!

YOU MUST STAND TOGETHER NOW AND JOIN YOUR PEOPLE IN THEIR STRUGGLE, OR FACE THE CONSEQUENCES OF INACTION AND SILENCE!

Honourable Members, this is the moment that you, representatives of the people of West Cameroon; from Boyo, Bui. Donga-Mantung, Fako. Kupe-Manenguba. Lebialem, Manyu. Merne. Mentchum. Mezam. Momo, Ndian and Ngokitunjia must stage a protest, in the name of our people, and walk out of the Cameroon National Assembly together!

This is your historic moment to stand in solidarity with the people and save them from 56 years of slavery! If you lose this chance, our people and history will never forgive you!
God is with us and He will bless and protect you all for standing up for His People!

Hon Joseph M. Wirba
MP Member Of Parliament
Cameroon National Assembly
