WHY ACT ?
Founded on the belief that we are responsible for our fate due to our compromises with our rulers, our cowardice, our selﬁshness, and all sort of primitive mental chains and feudality: defeatism, fatalism, tribalism, fetishism, occultism, fear, cowardice, identity withdrawal, etc. and which depends on us to cultivate values that will lead us to a bright future: determination, conﬁdence, audacity, courage, perseverance, self-control, excellence,…;
Grounded on the bitter acknowledgement that we are one way or the other accomplices of our fate, because we have allowed, or we have allowed ourselves to be abused, we have accepted to endure, to be consenting victims of those who oppress us, to take pleasure of our position of slaves or oppressed. The ﬁrst step of deliverance is by getting out of this state of mind, by hook or by crook; we must come out of this mentality of defeatism, fatalism, tribalism, fetishism, self-enclosure, and the denial to participate in the human adventure of innovation;
Determined to promote a State grounded on a genuine democracy, by which citizens can freely exercise their rights and freedom in pursuit of their individual and collective fulfillment;
Convinced that our cultural heritage is an asset, but ACT is of the opinion that Cameroon as a Republic it is not a conglomerate of ethnic groups, if not it should have be called the Ethnic Republic of Cameroon;
An Advocacy Group
A Movement THAT affirmS …
Mediocrity, poverty and precariousness are neither a fatality nor a curse. They are the results of the deliberate public policy choices we have made based on archaic values and selﬁsh interest, and it only depends on us to build a future of our choice, if we have the will, the courage and the audacity to ACT to take our destiny into our own hands;
The individual and identity withdrawal to oneself is a factor of impoverishment; it is for this reason that ACT rejects all factors that can stimulate tribalism or ethnicity, etc;
A movement that wants to answer the call for action, with the willing to act by bringing concrete solutions to the problems of life faced by the people in terms of unemployment, housing, education, health, access to services and basic infrastructures (electricity, transport, telecommunication);
