Protect Human Rights Defenders!

OFFGO supports traditional farming and nomadic livestock communities in the North West Region of Cameroon. Serious human rights violations, including attacks on our office and farms, expulsion from the country of our founder and chairman, arbitrary and illegal detentions, death threats, torture, assassination attempts, hinder the continuation of our programs. Community members have had their livelihoods destroyed and their lives torn apart, with no sign of justice, accountability, compensation or redress. The UN Secretary-General documents reprisals (.docx or .pdf) (or selected pages (.png): 16, 17) that OFFGO staff have faced for engaging with the UN.
