Program Title: WINGS #13-19 Peace for Cameroon?
Description: Since 2016, when the Anglophone protests were suppressed by the government, both resistance and government use of force has spiralled out of control in Cameroon. Many women and children are homeless, without possessions or means of support. Huge numbers of people have become internally displaced or refugees in Nigeria. This program documents women organizing and demonstrating for peaceful resolution.
Host(s): Patience Wirngo, Frieda Werden
Featured Speakers/Guests: Two women rendered homeless by the fighting. Kah Wallah, leading woman politician and former Presidential candidate, organizer of an International Women's Day demonstration. Roseline Nzelle Nkwelle, nationally known journalist, scholar of peace studies, and social media activist for peace. Leymah Gbowee, Nobel Peace Laureate from Liberia, at a press conference about her fact-finding tour of Cameroon.
