Sources Magazine Issue 1: Beans of Resistance
The primary motive of this issue is to bring insight into the turmoil and instability facing the English, or Anglophone region of Cameroon, from an experienced perspective.
The people of this region from Cameroon seek to share their plight and current situation with the world. Initiating interest from readers outside the region will bolster conversations inside and outside Cameroon.
This dispute in Cameroon has been simmering for decades, but boiled over in 2016, and since then, has cost over 3,000 lives, and displaced over 500,000 people.
SOURCES MAGAZINE OVERVIEW
SOURCES is a publication devoted to sharing comprehensive stories from different parts of the coffee producing world. These stories bring both positive and negative current events to light.
The magazine takes an initial interest in coffee producing regions or producers implementing sustainable practices; then delves deeper into complex situations that need to be shared with the outside world.
Our hope is that readers engage with these stories, allocating the time to drink a coffee towards being educated about real situations faced by other humans. Understanding the situation gives a deeper appreciation for your cup of coffee and the people involved. Just reading this and educating yourself, initiates progress towards change.
We sincerely hope you enjoy the issue, gain some insight, and put forth some effort towards facilitating change towards a better future.
