Australia: Catholic Cardinal Confronted on His Involvement in Tigray Genocide

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 22, 2022

The Ethiopian prelate of the Ethiopian Catholic Church – Cardinal Berhaneyesus Souraphiel of Addis Ababa was in Sydney, Australia.

❖ After a Sunday mass in St Mary’s Cathedral Sydney, a woman from Tigray, Ethiopia confronts him about his complicity in Tigray Genocide. While he is meeting people after the mass service, a woman is beckoned by another woman to meet him. He seems to recognize her or her affiliation. The woman approaches him and after greeting him respectfully, she seems to tell him that she represents the Tigray community and then she confronts him thus:

“We just want to ask why there wasn’t much coverage on the Tigray Genocide. Because there is a genocide happening in the Tigray Region right now. As a christian, as father of God you [haven’t said much?]…

We have a picture of you and other religious leaders standing with the Ethiopian military.”
