African school strikers

The UK Student Climate Network is circulating an appeal from Fridays for Future Cameroon. Two climate school strikers in Cameroon in West Africa, Hamadou Sarki and Ibrahima Sali, were arrested during the September strike. They were only released after paying €2,200 each in bail – which is not going to be returned, they’ve been told.

Their families raised the money by selling their land and homes and Fridays for Future Cameroon is trying to raise €10,000 to enable them to buy new plots of land and build homes on them.
