UK Bishops, Christian Leaders in Solidarity with Anglophone Cameroon

Two Bishops, alongside other Christian leaders in the UK, have called on the international community and the UK government to respond to the ongoing situation of violence in Cameroon.

“We hear the cry of our sisters and brothers in Cameroon’s Anglophone region, who are facing daily violations of their human dignity,” reads the ecumenical statement co-signed by Bishops Declan Lang of Clifton and Philip Egan of Portsmouth, as well as four other religious leaders.

“Recent reports of extrajudicial killings, arbitrary detention and attacks on civilians demand a response from the international community,” said the religious leaders in the statement published on the website of the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales (CBCEW) on Monday.

Bishop Lang is the Chairman of the International Affairs department of the CBCEW, while Bishop Egan’s diocese is twinned with the Archdiocese of Bamenda located in Cameroon’s northwest.
