Dear Brother Arsene,

We thank you for the sharing of this email from that members of ISOC

I read through their statement and this is one importance of the ISOC
chapters as there roles is to work also with the government to promote the
internet but also engage in situations like today where the internet was

Its good that the approach to meet and talk to the government is initiated
by the ISOC team in Cameroon and this way of engagement is good for the
internet governance.

We hope the ISOC chapter and government with more stakeholder shall discuss
and resolve and restore the internet as already the situation is with
politicals reasons.

Why shut if before it was not shutdown.?

We must also learn from the reasons why the government did shut. This is
why politics you left to the politicians but we must engage them through

Best Regards,

Dear all,

I think this will be of help to Andrew with regards to ISOC Cameroon. This
is an email sent by its President to the Civil Society Internet Governance
Caucus (IGC), a group that i am coordinating.

This statement came after the IGC has discussed his email and even made a
statement to request an official statement/communication from ISOC Global
and from ISOC Cameroon on Internet shutdowns.

I will share the letter the IGC sent to ISOC (when i find it) that resulted
in this reaction from ISOC Cameroon President.
