✞✞✞[ኦሪት ዘዳግም ምዕራፍ ፴፪፥ ፮፡፯]✞✞✞

ደንቆሮ ብልሃተኛም ያልሆንህ ሕዝብ ሆይ፥ ለእግዚአብሔር ይህንን ትመልሳለህ? የገዛህ አባትህ አይደለምን? የፈጠረህና ያጸናህ እርሱ ነው። የዱሮውን ዘመን አስብ፥ የብዙ ትውልድንም ዓመታት አስተውል፤ አባትህን ጠይቅ፥ ያስታውቅህማል፤ ሽማግሌዎችህን ጠይቅ፥ ይነግሩህማል።”

[Deuteronomy 32:6-7]
Is this the way you repay the LORD, you foolish and unwise people? Is he not your Father, your Creator,who made you and formed you?Remember the days of old, Consider the years of all generations. Ask your father, and he will inform you, Your elders, and they will tell you.

✞✞✞ [ኦሪት ዘዳግም ምዕራፍ ፬፡፱፤፲] ✞✞✞

እግዚአብሔር። ሕዝቡን ወደ እኔ ሰብስብ፥ በምድርም በሕይወት በሚኖሩበት ዘመን ሁሉ እኔን መፍራት ይማሩ ዘንድ፥ ልጆቻቸውንም ያስተምሩ ዘንድ ቃሌን አሰማቸዋለሁ ብሎ በተናገረኝ ጊዜ፥ በአምላክህ በእግዚአብሔር ፊት በኮሬብ በቆምህበት ቀን ዓይኖችህ ያዩትን ነገር እንዳትረሳ፥ በሕይወትህም ዘመን ሁሉ ከልብህ እንዳይወድቅ ተጠንቀቅ፥ ነፍስህንም በትጋት ጠብቅ፤ ለልጆችህም ለልጅ ልጆችህም አስታውቀው።

[Deuteronomy 4:9-10]
“Only give heed to yourself and keep your soul diligently, so that you do not forget the things which your eyes have seen and they do not depart from your heart all the days of your life; but make them known to your sons and your grandsons.”

💭 History repeats itself:

🔥 Amhara & Oromos bombing Tigray, Using Rape, Hunger & forced resettlement (Mengistu did it back then, Ahmed will do the same now) as a Weapon against People in Tigray for the past 130 years:-

👉 1. Menelik II. (1844 – 1913)

The Great Ethiopian Famine of 1888-1892

The great famine is estimated to have caused 3.5 million deaths. During Emperor Menilik’s Reign, Tigray was split into two regions, one of which he sold to the Italians who later named it Eritrea. Only two months after the death of Emperor Yohaness lV , Menelik signed the Wuchale treaty of 2 May 1889 conceding Eritrea to the Italians. It was not only Eritrea that Menelik gave away, he also had a hand in letting Djibouti be part of the French protectorate when he agreed the border demarcation with the French in 1887. Some huge parts of Tigray were put under Gonder. The Southern part, places like present day Alamata, Kobo etc. were put under Wello Amhara administration.

👉 2. Haile Selassie (1892 – 1975)

In 1943, at the request of the Emperor Haile Selassie, the Royal British Airforce bombed two towns – Mekelle and Corbetta. Thousands of defenseless civilians lost their lives as a result of aerial bombardment. It is recorded that ‘on 14th October [1943] 54 bombs dropped in Mekelle, 6th October 14 bombs followed by another 16 bombs on 9thOctober in Hintalo, 7th/9th October 32 bombs in Corbetta’. Between 2 and 5 million’ people died between 1958 and 1977 as a cumulative result. Haile Selassie, who was emperor at the time, refused to send any significant basic emergency food aid to the province of Tigray,

👉 3. Mengistu Hailemariam (1937 – )

1979 – 1985 + 1987

Due to organized government policies that deliberately multiplied the effects of the famine, around 1.2 million people died from this famine. Mengistu & his Children still alive & ‘well’ while Tigrayans starving again.

👉 4. Abiy Ahmed Ali (1976 – )

2018 – Until today: probably up to 500.000 already dead. 😠😠😠 😢😢😢 Unlike the past famine there is no natural or man-made drought, rather, Abiy simply uses war and hunger as a weapon. Abiy Ahmed sent his kids to America for safety, while bombing & starving Tigrayan kids!

In the past, and at present, the OLF (Oromo Liberation Front/ OLA) works together with Isaias Afewerkis’ ELF, TPLF, PP, ANM, EZEMA etc. So, are they all conspiring together against the ancient Christian people of Tigray so that they could be able to replace Ethiopia and create an Antichrist Islamic ‘Cush’ Caliphate of Oromia?

VOA: Ethiopian Holy City Reels in #TigrayGenocide | የኢትዮጵያ ቅድስት ከተማ በትግራይ ጭፍጨፋ ችግር ውስጥ ገብታለች

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 14, 2021

In past years, pilgrims and tourists have flocked to Axum, a holy city in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. Today, many of its streets are quiet, and many businesses are closed due to more than seven months of war involving the national government and a regional political party that led the ruling coalition for three decades. Continuing battles in the countryside are deepening a strain on the city.

The Elders: The UN & AU Must Act Now to Prevent Famine & End Atrocities in Tigray, Ethiopia

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 14, 2021

The Elders today called on the UN Security Council and the African Union to take urgent steps to address the unfolding humanitarian and human rights crisis in Tigray, Ethiopia, which poses a clear threat to regional peace and security in the Horn of Africa.

With the UN’s Emergency Relief Coordinator declaring last week that there is famine in Tigray, The Elders urged all parties to the conflict, particularly Ethiopian and Eritrean defence forces, to stop impeding the ability of aid agencies to reach people in need.

Full, unhindered access and rapid scale-up of assistance are vital if a large-scale famine is to be avoided. The UN Security Council must now respond in line with UNSC Resolution 2417 and be clear that continued access violations will lead to appropriate actions against those responsible.

The Elders called on the AU to recognise the true gravity of the situation, and fulfil its mandate to ensure peace and stability on the continent. The spill-over effects of the Tigray conflict, including the forced displacement of people across borders, directly threaten regional stability.

Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, former president of Liberia, Nobel peace laureate and member of The Elders, said:

“I call upon the AU to address the humanitarian and human rights catastrophe that is unfolding in its host country, and urge the AU Chairperson to lead regional efforts to facilitate a political solution to the Tigray crisis and prevent further instability.”

In March, Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed committed to ensuring the withdrawal of Eritrean troops from the Tigray region. Three months on, this commitment has not been implemented and Eritrean forces continue to fuel the conflict and perpetrate human rights atrocities. The Elders believe that the presence of the Eritrean forces significantly undermines Ethiopia’s stability and that of the region, and support the G7 leaders’ call in their summit communique for an immediate withdrawal of Eritrean troops from Tigray.

The Elders condemned the widespread rape, sexual assault and other forms of gender-based violence against women and girls that continue to be carried out with impunity in the Tigray region. The charging and prosecution of some Ethiopian National Defence Force soldiers, as reported by the Attorney General, is a step forward but far from adequate given the scale of reported abuses. It is crucial that trials are conducted in civilian rather than military courts, and that the safety of victims and witnesses is assured. The Ethiopian, UN and AU institutions tasked with human rights investigations into atrocities in Tigray must be allowed to be conducted their work independently, free from intimidation and coercion.

Mary Robinson, Chair of the Elders and former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said:

“The systematic use of rape and sexual violence as a weapon of war is a grave violation of international humanitarian law. All parties to the conflict must immediately take steps at all levels of their command structures to prevent and address such atrocities. Accountability for these unlawful and dehumanising acts must be delivered, including at the highest levels, to deter future crimes and provide justice for the women and girls whose lives have been devastated in this way.”

Ahead of Ethiopia’s upcoming national elections, the Elders urged the Ethiopian Prime Minister to show leadership and demonstrate his willingness to engage in an inclusive, national dialogue. This would be a vital, positive step towards resolving the situation in Tigray and strengthening the stability of Ethiopia and the region.

G7 Protests | Environmentalists + ‘Israel-Palestine’ Hijacking #TigrayGenocide?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 14, 2021

I am not being selfless, but frankly speaking, at this moment, compared with The #TigrayGenocide, the two events (Environment + Palestine) are less important, superfluous and a waste of time. It would have been more important for these folks if they would have been able to give their extra voices to the Tigrayan Ethiopians and Burmese protesters.

👉 Imagine The global outrage if The 150,000 killed, 15,000 raped women and millions displaced and starved Tigrayan Ethiopians had actually been Palestinian, and the aggressors Israeli Troops. We’re observing this right now! Watch how the world reacts to the current escalated Fighting between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants.

The same thing happening over and over again. I was old enough to remember the 2001 United Nations meeting on racism in Durban, South Africa:

💭 The Racism Walkout: The Overview; U.S. And Israelis Quit Racism Talks Over Denunciation„

💭 Thousands protest over climate change, Ethiopia and Myanmar at G7 summit

Thousands of protesters have marched through the streets of Cornwall on day two of the G7 summit as leaders of the world’s richest nations gathered to discuss coronavirus and other key issues.

Members and supporters of Extinction Rebellion walked through the town of Falmouth playing drums, chanting and displaying artwork campaigning against the use of fossil fuels, during their second day of protests.

Separately, more than 1,000 people protested against the crisis in the Ethiopian region of Tigray while thousands also gathered to raise awareness of the coup d’etat by the military in Myanmar.

Several of the protest groups gathered in Church Street Car Park – around 500 metres from the media base of the G7 – where they held rallies and chanted passionately before parading past the centre.

Ethiopian protesters were heard shouting “(Prime Minister of Ethiopia) Abiy is a criminal”, “G7 act now” and “Stop Abiy’s war crimes” at their rally.

They held up banners and the flag of Tigray before setting off a smoke flare.

Athy Mruz, 41, was one of the organisers of the Ethiopian rally and is a member of campaign group Tigray Youth Network.

The G7 has a meeting today and we are demanding they take action against our unelected prime minister who is committing genocide upon the Tigrayan people,” she told PA.

We no longer are OK with them simply condemning it, we want them to actually take action as we estimate over 150,000 people have been killed while over 15,000 women have been raped. There’s starvation and displacement for millions of people. We can’t wait any more.

This is not a famine – this is not happening because Tigray is poor, it is man-made. It is being conducted, plotted and orchestrated by our unelected prime minister over the past seven months. This is a humanitarian issue, not a political issues.”

She added people from all over the UK had turned up for the protest and they were “proud” and “amazed” by the support they have received.

Tensions have been in place between Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and leaders of Tigray since November.

A United Nations-backed study released on Thursday said 353,000 people in the region were living in “severe crisis”.
