Social Impact Project for Filmmaker for Southern Cameroons Ambazonia Genocide Awareness Project
Project Description and Impact
Between April and June of 1994, 800,000 Rwandans were slaughtered in less than 100 days. The international community closed its eyes. Unlike other atrocities of the 20th century, the Rwandan genocide unfolded before the public eye. Journalists, radio broadcasters and TV news reporters covered the events live from the ground. The world’s largest peacekeeping force UN troops stood by and did not intervene. After The Rwandan Genocide the UN Promised 'Never Again' to stand by and allow another genocide to happen.
Barely two decades active after Rwanda, another Genocide currently going on in Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia. Since November 2016, an estimated 15000 civilians have been killed by soldiers of La Republique du Cameroun (LRC).
