[liberationtech] Fwd: Open Forum : Help - Southern Cameroons - Internet Shut Dow

Please, someone here can help Cameroon and/or give Isaac and me some
guidelines to help it?  Please, please, please?  :D

I love mesh networks, but the Brazilian projects I was following
failed miserably because we had no money enough, no technical
knowledge enough, and too much opposition...  Most of the people
thought we wanted to commit crimes, aff...  Bah, we don't need a
meshnet to do it, d'oh!  And I have better things to do in my free
time; being a criminal is absolutely not glamorous or charming in the
real life!  :P

Kisses and hugs!  Thanks in advance!   <3

Hello Folks,

As you might be aware, its been 45 days since the government of
Cameroon shut down the internet to the people of Southern Cameroons.
With no where else to turn, I thought,you may be the answer to our
problem of Internet shut down in Southern Cameroons.

I am writing to solicit your help to find an answer to the internet
shut down problem in Cameroon.

I am writing to find out if anyone of has any ideas on how we could
get internet in Southern Cameroons through the meshnets.
Not being a technie, I am unable to really understand how it works.
Could someone with experience help?

Is  there is any technology out there that can provide satellite
internet without equipment on the ground. I have done all kinds of
internet search to find answers, but I am unable to come up with an
Or, is it possible for any telecommunication company here in the US or
elsewhere to issue SIM cards that can enable the folks in Southern
Cameroons to get internet?

You might notice that my questions  may not make any sense. Yes, I am
very frustrated, so there might not be any logic in my thought

Any help, ideas, contacts you can provide me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.
