EML Endeley, February 1961: “Don’t Join Cameroun Republic Where There’s NO FREEDOM”

Nearly everyone in the Southern Cameroons has heard of the word FREEDOM. Our association with Nigeria for nearly half a century has made us to realise what it means to move about freely; to speak in public freely; to worship freely; to speak out our minds without fear of molestation. These freedoms, and many more, will continue to be ours.

But if we vote for union with Cameroun Republic, you will invite a new system under which everyone lives in fear of the Police and the Army. You will not be free to move about; you cannot lecture freely or discuss your political vies in public; you must carry your tax ticket around your neck like a dog; and you can be arrested and flogged by the police and even imprisoned without fair trial.
