We continue to raise the shutdown of the internet in certain areas with the Government of Cameroon.

We have called for the Cameroon authorities to allow everyone to voice their concerns peacefully and without hindrance, restore access to the internet, and for the Government and those in the English speaking regions to come to a peaceful resolution.
