Re Visiting the UB 2005 strike action to better understand today’s 2006 Action

Former student leader Agwere, a true and dynamic leader who stood his grounds

Water canon from our colonial troops on harmless students

The victory of stones and collective action

Students gather at the Buea Morque to pay respect to their fallen colleagues

Students and soldiers confront one another

The booty of steadfastness

Students were able to confront and seize amunitions with their bare hands

An example of brute force on a pacifist population

The Students with bare hands and stones also gained territory

The battle drifted from the streets to student residential areas

The fell in trying to defend what they belief in

The students used old vehicles as barricades to sustain their action and protect territory

The remains of a fallen colleague and true friend of change

He will always be remembered

There was no peace, even to those who were not students

The freedom fighters of tomorrows Southern Cameroon

We were able to have some gains anyway

After math of a voilent and dreadful day

Some gendarmes will remain to regret why they ever joined the force of occupation

May their souls always remain in peace and they shall always be remembered
