Pastoralists block land grab thanks to legal action and international mobilisation

The case describes how a community of Mbororo pastoralists in North West Cameroon defended its land against attempts of the Bamenda Archdiocese to dispossess them and construct a new campus of the Catholic University of Cameroon (CATUC) on their land. Through legal action and mobilisation of international media and public opinion, the community was able to block the land grab.
