Twitter reaction to #BringBackOurInternet, Cameroon’s Internet Blackout.

Five weeks ago, parts of Cameroon’s English speaking sectors had their Internet access cut off due to protests over an alleged government bias in favour of French-speaking Cameroonian’s.

English speaking lawyers, teachers and doctors kicked things off in early December and as the protests turned violent the government shut down the Internet in an apparent attempt to stifle communication on social media.

As word of the blackout spread , a hashtag developed which has garnered global support.
