This is a documentary gathering of the Cameroon Tea Estate (CTE) plantation workers protesting for their rights to promised severance pay of FCFA 2.4 billion, having lived (sleep) in an open air for closed to 6months. And till date the Cameroon Government has not been able to see into these workers plight.

This documentary was shot on March 3rd, 2011. 2 days before the cameroon government - Minister of Labour and other government officials called for the CTE Workers for a dialogue meeting in Yaounde. At the end of the meeting the government promised to solve the problem within 9months

If you recalled, I posted the CTE article here on PCDN at http://www.internationalpeaceandconflict.org/profiles/blogs/tole-te... [1]
