"The force of argument, not the argument of force."

Our Mission

We want separation from La République de Cameroun, we want independence for Southern Cameroons, we want to build a democratic state that is based on our British heritage, our culture, and ways. We will build a state with shared heritage and with equal rights for all.  

Since our creation in 1995, we have fought relentlessly with La République de Cameroun to separate from a forceful union which has oppressed our people for decades. We continue to fight and demand that the world respect our right to self-determination and recognize our state of Ambazonia.

A Brief History of SCNC

After the Bamenda Declaration of 1994, a large number of All Anglophone Conference (AAC) members decided to work toward secession rather than autonomy by federation.  Southern Cameroon People's Conference (SCPC) was formed in 1995 as an umbrella organization bringing together student, trade organizations, and political organizations committed to independence, rather than a return to autonomy.

The Southern Cameroons National Council (SCNC) was the elected body in charge of organizing SCPC efforts. SCNC has led the fight for separation since then.

What We Do

Our activities are towards regaining our autonomy, to demand justice for our citizens suffering injustice and human rights violations in La République de Cameroun, and to support refugee Southern Cameroonians around the world.

Fight for Separation from French Cameroon

Efforts to push for secession of the anglophone Southern Cameroons from the country of Cameroun started in the 1960s when we were forced to join either Nigeria or Cameroun disregarding the fact that we are a people with our own culture, believes, institutions, and ways. We shared nothing with French Cameroun. Our union has been questioned for decades and we have faced tremendous oppression under french Cameroon. We continue to fight everyday to separate from this union.

Human Rights and Refugees

La République de Cameroun has killed thousands because of our efforts to separate, thousands abused, and more displaced around the world as refugees. We work with UNHCR and other charities to raise funds to support victims.

Diplomatic Negotiations

SCNC is a non-violent organization and our weapon is peaceful dialogue. We talk to organisations such as UN, AU, UNPO to present our rightful claim to our land and demand for restoration of our statehood. We do not fight with arms or support any form of activity that hurts people.

Protests and Demonstrations

This a peaceful way of spreading our message to the world and to show the world the atrocities of La République de Cameroun in Southern Cameroons. We protest arrest of our people. We demonstration against french Cameroun.
