The government of Cameroon has cut off internet access for regions of the country with primarily English-speaking inhabitants. The internet access has been gone since the middle of January following a series of protests against the governement. English speakers have long reported discrimination, and have limited access to justice, since the language of the courts is French. Following a 2015 joint declaration in the UN, network shutdowns are considered a measure, which can ‘never be justified under human rights law’.
