Edward Joseph Snowden joins the #BringBackOurInternet fight

Edward Joseph Snowden has called on the Cameroon government via Twitter to #BringBackOurInternet in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon. "If we don't fight it here, it will happen here,"  said the American computer professional, former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) employee, and former contractor for the United States government. 

Internet connections have been completely shut down in the northwest and southwest of Cameroon, its two main English-speaking regions as a long drawn out mass protest against marginalization by the French-speaking led government persists.

It is the first time the central African country is tampering with internet connectivity, which has been ongoing in the former Southern Cameroons since Jan. 17.
