The BLCC (Bakweri Land Claims Committee), working on behalf of the Bakweri people, is a model for resolution of conflicts between the people and the state in Africa. The Bakweri are an indigenous African nation in present day Cameroon. Their lush and fertile lands were illegally seized by Kaiser Wilhelm's German colonial empire in the 19th Century. The modern state of Cameroon is playing by the same imperial rule book, inspite of the fact that the Bakweri hold title to their native lands. The Bakweris are pursuing legal and civil means to end the alienation of their lands.
Active support of causes such as the Bakweris' is essential if there is to be peace, justice and prosperity on earth. In buying from this store, you are helping to pay for legal, travel and advocacy expenses.
