Southern Cameroons (represented by Southern Cameroons Youth League)

Southern Cameroons was created by the British Order in Council of June 26, 1923. By this act of the colonial authority, the British Southern Cameroons became a distinct within the international system, and a unit of self-determination. Between 1954 and 1961, the Southern Cameroons was self-governing, with its government, Prime Minister, parliament, judiciary and House of Chiefs. It conducted its first free and fair election in which power changed hands peacefully in 1959.

In 1960 a tragedy occurred when Southern Cameroons was placed under the illegal occupation of Cameroon. In 1972, the Southern Cameroons government was abrogated and the territory was divided into two provinces of La Republique du Cameroun.


The Southern Cameroons Youth League (SCYL) was created with the unique mission of using all available civilised means including force to bring freedom to the suffering and persecuted people of the Southern Cameroons.
