Description: 
What forms of struggle are Africans using to fight the many-headed hydra of neocolonialism, and what forms of international solidarity are needed in response? This panel will examine the lawyer-led uprising Ambazonia, also known as the Southern Cameroons, which since fall 2016 has been garnering unprecedented participation and support. Panelists from Ambazonia, Cameroon, Nigeria and the US will discuss the roles of different sectors, the historical-political context of French neo-colonialism (la Francafrique), the Ambazonian refugee crisis and the role of Nigeria, and the organizing for political prisoner support including through House Resolution 718.
