Over 15,000 Doctors & Scientists Sign Declaration Opposing Covid-19 Vaccinations for Children

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 16, 2021

💭 Dr Robert Malone, Architect of mRNA – Pleading With The Public Not to Vaxxinate Their Children

More than 15,000 physicians and scientists from all over the world have signed a declaration stating that they are opposed to Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines for children, especially the vaccines made using mRNA technology.

This is according to Dr. Robert W. Malone, the inventor of mRNA technology behind the creation of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines.

Malone, who has worked for over three decades in vaccine research and development, warned parents that the decision to give their children the dangerous COVID-19 vaccine is “irreversible.” Malone highlighted three main issues with the vaccines, specifically the COVID-19 vaccines based on mRNA technology.

First, Malone said that the mRNA vaccines inject a viral gene into a person’s body. This gene forces the body to create toxic spike proteins that can cause permanent damage to children’s organs, including their immune, reproductive and nervous systems. It can also damage the brain, heart and blood vessels and cause deadly blood clots.

Second, he said that the mRNA technology is still in its development stage and has not been tested enough. The mRNA COVID-19 vaccines were introduced for wide public consumption less than a year after development began.

Malone pointed out that it takes at least five years of testing and thorough research before a vaccine’s full risks can be properly understood. “Ask yourself if you want your own child to be part of the most radical medical experiment in human history,” said Malone.

Third, Malone said that the main reason politicians and public health officials want children to be vaccinated is based on a lie. When weighing the benefits against the risks of vaccinating children, Malone said there is no tangible benefit for them to get the vaccine.

Your children represent no danger to their parents or grandparents. It’s actually the opposite. Their immunity, after getting COVID, is critical to save your family, if not the world, from this disease,” he said.

As a parent and grandparent, my recommendation to you is to resist and fight to protect your children.”

Many parents are concerned about giving their children the COVID-19 vaccine

According to a recent poll conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF), most parents still are not confident that the vaccines will provide safety for their children against COVID-19.

❖❖❖[Mark 9:42]❖❖❖

Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.”

❖❖❖[የማርቆስ ወንጌል ምዕራፍ ፱፥፵፪]❖❖❖

በእኔም ከሚያምኑት ከእነዚህ ከታናናሾቹ አንዱን የሚያሰናክል ሁሉ ትልቅ የወፍጮ ድንጋይ በአንገቱ ታስሮ ወደ ባሕር ቢጣል ይሻለው ነበር።”

The KFF’s survey was conducted between Nov. 8 to 23 and involved 1,196 parents with at least one child under the age of 18.

After an initial wave of vaccinations over the summer due to the government’s mass vaccination program, the number of children and teenagers between the ages of 12 and 17 getting vaccinated has significantly gone down. According to the KFF’s survey, only around half of the parents surveyed – 49 percent – reported their adolescents having received at least one dose of the vaccine.

Just one percent of parents of adolescents now say they will get their adolescent vaccinated as soon as they are able. Thirteen percent said they want to wait and see how well the vaccine has affected other teenagers before doing so. Around 30 percent said they will not get their teenager vaccinated.

Parents of younger children, between the ages of five and 11, are even less excited about the vaccine. Only 16 percent said their child has already been vaccinated. Thirteen percent said they will get their young child vaccinated immediately.

Thirty-two percent of parents said they want to wait and see if the vaccine works for other young children first. Around 29 percent said they will never get their young child vaccinated. (Related: 8-year-old girl differs stroke and brain hemorrhage less than a day after getting Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.)

There are about 25 million adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 and 28 million younger children between the ages of five and 11 in the United States.

Listen to this special situation updateof the “Health Ranger Report,” a podcast by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, as he talked about how nations that fail to protect children from the experimental, dangerous and demonic COVID-19 vaccines will suffer the wrath of God.

Prince Williams: Population Growth in Africa Endangers its Wildlife | #TigrayGenocide

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 10, 2021

💭የብሪታኒያ ፕሪንስ ዊሊያም፤ “በአፍሪካ የህዝብ ቁጥር መጨመር የዱር እንስሳቷን አደጋ ላይ ይጥላል”

💭 ዊሊያም እና ሚስቱ አራተኛውን የልጅ ፕሮጄክታቸውን የቀጠሉበት ይመስላል ፥ ግን የአፍሪካ ህጻናት በሚሊዮኖች የሚቆጠሩ ሲሞቱ ማየት ይሻሉ። 😈

And the #TigrayGenocide is part of this ‘global depopulation plan’.

Kate Middleton and William appear to have resumed their fourth child project – while wanting to see African children die in millions

💭 “By 2050, Africa is expected to have a population of 2.5 billion. In many regions in Africa having 6 or 7 children is not uncommon.”

Speaking at the Tusk conservation awards in London, William said increasing pressure on the continent’s “wildlife and wild spaces as a result of human population” was presenting a “huge challenge for conservationists, as it does the world over”.

“But it is imperative that the natural world is protected not only for its contribution to our economies, jobs and livelihoods, but for the health, wellbeing and future of humanity,” he said.

The 39-year-old’s remarks echoed comments he made in 2017, when he said that Africa’s “rapidly growing human population” was putting its wildlife and habitats under “enormous pressure”.

The ‘Prince’ of fools himself is expecting a 4th child… I honestly don’t see what William’s 3rd child has to do with wildlife in Africa.

💭 The world depopulation plan

Among the associates of this pactum sceleris there must also be counted some members of the Pontifical Academy for Life, which recently had its organizational structure overturned by Bergoglio himself when he removed the members who were most faithful to the Magisterium, replacing them with supporters of depopulation, contraception, and abortion. There should be no surprise at the Holy See’s support for vaccines: in June 2011 the Sovereign Independent carried the headline on its front page: “Depopulation Through Forced Vaccination: The Zero Carbon Solution!”. Beside the headline, a photograph of Bill Gates was accompanied by a quote from him: “The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive services [abortion and contraception], we lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.” This is what Bill Gates said eleven years ago. Today he is one of the shareholders of the Black Rock group that finances the pharmaceutical companies that produce the vaccines, one of the main sponsors of the World Health Organization (WHO), and also of a myriad of public and private entities connected to health. At his side we curiously find George Soros, the “philanthropist” of the Open Society, which together with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation recently invested in a British company that produces swabs for Covid testing. And since we are talking about economic issues, I would like to recall that the Holy See has held shares worth about €20 million in two pharmaceutical companies that have produced a contraceptive drug (here), and more recently it invested in a fund that guaranteed very high profits in the event of a geopolitical or pandemic crisis thanks to speculation on international currencies, the “Geo-Risk” fund managed by the Merrill Lynch investment bank, which had to close it because of its skyrocketing yields after the first few months of the pandemic. Other capital, coming from the “Peter’s Pence” collection, had been used to finance various other initiatives, even collaborating with [Italian businessman] Lapo Elkann, whose endeavors include Rocketman, the autobiographical film of Elton John. To say nothing of the real estate speculations and the purchase of the London building at 60 Sloane Avenue that the news coverage has amply informed us on, a purchase that I know, from a reliable source, was decided on by Bergoglio himself. And then there’s China: always in the name of “coherence” and the “church of the poor for the poor” that is so dear to Bergoglio’s heart, there are those who believe that the secret Accord prepared by the Jesuits and former-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick may have obtained substantial funding from the communist regime in Beijing in exchange for the Vatican’s silence over the persecution of Catholics and the violation of human rights

👉 Counterargument

💭 Empty Planet’ by Darrell Bricker & John Ibbitson

An award-winning journalist and leading international social researcher make the provocative argument that the global population will soon begin to decline, dramatically reshaping the social, political, and economic landscape.

For half a century, statisticians, pundits, and politicians have warned that a burgeoning population will soon overwhelm the earth’s resources. But a growing number of experts are sounding a different alarm. Rather than continuing to increase exponentially, they argue, the global population is headed for a steep decline — and in many countries, that decline has already begun.

In Empty Planet, John Ibbitson and Darrell Bricker find that a smaller global population will bring with it many benefits: fewer workers will command higher wages; the environment will improve; the risk of famine will wane; and falling birthrates in the developing world will bring greater affluence and autonomy for women.

But enormous disruption lies ahead, too. We can already see the effects in Europe and parts of Asia, as aging populations and worker shortages weaken the economy and impose crippling demands on healthcare and social security. The United States and Canada are well-positioned to successfully navigate these coming demographic shifts — that is, unless growing isolationism leads us to close ourselves off just as openness becomes more critical to our survival than ever.

Rigorously researched and deeply compelling, Empty Planet offers a vision of a future that we can no longer prevent — but one that we can shape, if we choose.

👉 From the book

The great defining event of the twenty-first century — one of the great defining events in human history — will occur in three decades, give or take, when the global population starts to decline. Once that decline begins, it will never end. We do not face the challenge of a population bomb but of a population bust — a relentless, generation-after-generation culling of the human herd. Nothing like this has ever happened before.

If you find this news shocking, that’s not surprising. The United Nations forecasts that our population will grow from seven billion to eleven billion in this century before leveling off after 2100. But an increasing number of demographers around the world believe the UN estimates are far too high. More likely, they say, the planet’s population will peak at around nine billion sometime between 2040 and 2060, and then start to decline, perhaps prompting the UN to designate a symbolic death to mark the occasion. By the end of this century, we could be back to where we are right now, and steadily growing fewer.

All Four Botswana “Omicron” Variant Patients Were Fully Vaccinated

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 27, 2021

🔥 ተለዋጩ ‘Omicron’ ኮቪድ/ COVID ሙሉ በሙሉ በተከተቡ ሰዎች ውስጥ ብቻ ተገኝቷል🔥

💭 The WHO have given it a new name called “Omicron”.

Omicron COVID Variant Found ONLY in Fully Vaccinated

All four Botswana Omicron variant patients were fully vaccinated

The “Omicron” variant of COVID arrived just in time to ruin Christmas. (Who didn’t see this coming?) The variant with “more mutations than you shake a spike protein at” was first identified in Botswana and quickly became the most prevalent variant in South Africa. But before you succumb to “pandemic of the unvaccinated” nonsense, consider this:

From the President of Botswana, where the variant was first discovered:

The preliminary report revealed all four [patients] had been previously vaccinated for COVID-19.

Covid Report Reveals Increase in Risk of Heart Attack Following The mRNA COVID Vaccine

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 26, 2021

💭 mRNA ኮቪድ ክትባትን ተከትሎ የልብ ህመም ስጋት መጨመሩን የኮቪድ ዘገባ ያሳያል

💭 Vaccine ‘Dramatically’ Increases Heart Risk, Says New Study

EUROPE and much of the Western world is in upheaval as people take to the streets over Covid. Mainstream media reports depict these protests as a response to vaccine mandates and other losses of freedom. That is far from the whole story, however.

They are also driven by a profound loss of confidence in the quality of the science behind the vaccination drive. Numerous warnings on the dangers of the jabs (see for example here, here, here, here, here and here) and of deaths and injuries associated with it, have gone unexamined and unreported.

The latest red alert on the dangers comes from Dr Steven Gundry, a renowned American cardiac surgeon, now medical director of the International Heart and Lung Institute at Palm Springs, California.

For the past eight years, his group has monitored the heart health of patients using a clinically validated test that predicts their risk of suffering an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), such as heart attack or angina, within the following five years.

ACS is defined as a range of conditions associated with sudden loss of blood flow to the heart, often caused by a piece of plaque breaking away from a blood vessel wall, or formation of a blood clot in the heart’s arteries.

The test, called PULS (Protein Unstable Lesion Signature), gives a score based on changes from the norm of nine protein biomarkers, all linked to what is going on in heart tissue and blood vessel walls (epithelium).

When the score goes up, it is a signal to the doctors and patients of a need to take remedial steps. When it goes below the norm, it means the five-year risk is low.

In an abstract presented to a meeting of the American Heart Association, published this month in the association’s journal Circulation, Gundry reports that ‘dramatic changes in the PULS score became apparent in most patients’ after the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA Covid shots.

The test was conducted in 566 patients, aged 28 to 97, between two and ten weeks following their second jab. The result was compared to their previous PULS score, drawn three to five months pre-shot.

Markers for inflammation, cell death, and T-cell movement (indicating an immune response to coronary artery injury) all increased, resulting in the overall PULS score rising from an 11 per cent five-year ACS risk in these patients, to a 25 per cent risk.

The report notes that the changes were seen in most vaccinated patients. It adds: ‘These changes persist for at least two and a half months post second dose of vaccine.

‘We conclude that the mRNA vaccines dramatically increase inflammation of the endothelium and T-cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination.’

Regulatory agencies in the US and UK have (belatedly) acknowledged that inflammation of the heart muscle and heart lining can occur after Covid vaccination, but say these adverse reactions are rare, and far outweighed by the known risks of Covid itself.

As of mid-November, however, 9,332 heart attacks had been reported in the wake of a Covid shot under America’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) – and according to a 2010 report, that might be one hundredth of the actual total because of medical reluctance to acknowledge vaccine harm.

Dr Gundry’s report, labelled formally as a warning to his American Heart Association colleagues, provides further evidence of a mechanism that may be putting millions at risk.

Commenting on the findings, medical blogger Dr Jesse Santiano points out that rupture of unstable coronary plaques, leading to a heart attack, is the most likely reason vaccinated athletes drop dead in the middle of a game.

He expresses the concern that the PULS cardiac score will get higher with booster shots, and will also risk long-term damage to the hearts of children and teenagers given the mRNA vaccines, even though their risk of death from Covid itself is minuscule.

He also points to a recent study covering all 16 states in Germany which found that the higher the vaccination rate in 2021, the higher the excess mortality compared to the previous five-year average.

Meanwhile, much of Africa has so far avoided large swathes of Covid deaths, despite fewer than six per cent of people being vaccinated. ‘Africa doesn’t have the vaccines and the resources to fight Covid-19 that they have in Europe and the US, but somehow they seem to be doing better,’ says Wafaa El-Sadr, chair of global health at Columbia University.

With governments around the world having been persuaded by Big Pharma, and lavishly-funded researchers, to go down the mass vaccination route as their primary response to the arrival of the genetically engineered SARS-COV-2, it will be hard to change course. But change they must – or the disaster we are already seeing promises to become a catastrophe.

Feast and Famine in Ethiopia | በዓል እና ረሀብ በኢትዮጵያ

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 5, 2021

😈 በጭራቁ የጅምላ ገዳይ አህመድ ንግስና በዓል ላይ የነበሩት የአፍሪካ መሪዎች ማፈሪያዎች ናቸው!

👉 የዋቄዮ-አላህ-አቴቴ-ቩዱ ግኑኝነት መሆኑ ነው። እንዴት ያለ ውርደት ነው!

😈 Shame on those African leaders who were at the inauguration of monster mass murderer Ahmed!

👉 It must be a Waaqayyo -Allah-Atete-Voodoo Connection. What a disgrace!

💭 My Note: History repeats itself:

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

😈 Menelik ll: Half Oromo + Half Amhara = Oromo (Crypto-Muslim / Man of the flesh)

😈 Haile Selassie: Half Oromo + Half Amhara = Oromo (Crypto-Muslim / Man of the flesh)

😈 Mengistu Hailemariam: Half Oromo + Half Amhara = Oromo (Crypto-Muslim / Man of the flesh)

😈 Abiy Ahmed Ali ´= Half Oromo + Half Amhara = Oromo (Crypto-Muslim / Man of the flesh)

👉 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 Menelik’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!

❖❖❖[Galatians 5:19-21]❖❖❖

Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

By Alex DeWaal

Today, Ethiopia is a land marked by the starkest contrast: feast and famine.

In Addis Ababa, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is holding a lavish celebration to inaugurate his new government, on a scale not seen since the coronation of Emperor Haile Selassie almost one hundred years ago. There are vast crowds, parades, state banquets, and soaring speeches about Ethiopia’s proud independence.

In Tigray, children are starving to death in a man-made famine. Clinics and hospitals, stripped bare of even basic medicines, are filled with their faint, pitiful cries. The UN published some of its most disturbing statistics ever: almost four out of five pregnant or nursing mothers were acutely malnourished.

It’s morally repugnant. And it’s politically dangerous too.

Heads of state and other international dignitaries arrived for the ceremonies at Addis Ababa’s Bole Airport over the weekend. If Abiy had his way, they would have passed by senior United Nations aid officials, on their way out. Seven humanitarian professionals were given 72 hours to leave on Thursday. The UN challenged the legality of the order so the deadline expired on Sunday with their position unclear. The official rationale for their expulsions is that they were “meddling in the internal affairs of the nation”, but it is no coincidence that the decision was announced just two days after the head of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Martin Griffiths, expressed his view that the famine “is man-made, [and] can be remedied by the act of government.” Three months ago, the UN-authorized Famine Review Committee assessed the evidence for food security in Tigray, and concluded that without a huge aid effort and an end to the fighting, massive famine was all-but-inevitable by the end of September. In June, about 400,000 people were in “famine-like conditions”—and that number was certain to grow. In the last three months, less than 10 percent of the aid supplies needed for Tigray have reached the region, feeding just 126,000 people. “The lack of food will mean that people will start to die,” Griffiths said.

The UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, said he was “shocked” by the expulsions. But he should not have been surprised. Abiy has made clear his intent to starve Tigray into submission—or worse—for many months. It has also been clear that he is following Eritrean President Isaias Afewerki’s absolutist playbook, demanding that the UN be subservient or leave. It took willful optimism on Guterres’s part to continue to express any confidence that the Ethiopian leader would relent and allow aid convoys to move, if the UN continued to try gentle persuasion rather than public pressure.

Concern over armed conflict and food security was the rationale for United Nations Security Council resolution 2417, which among other things reaffirmed that “using starvation of civilians as a method of warfare may constitute a war crime.” But international norms have not deterred the Ethiopian government and its Eritrean ally from committing the widest range of starvation crimes: causing famine and blocking relief.

The slow and painful deaths children and their mothers does not appear to disturb Abiy. Rather, he claims to be leading his country to fulfil its historical destiny of greatness. Abiy also claims an electoral mandate based on winning 95 percent of the seats in last May’s election—a margin of victory that trumpets its hollowness.

Abiy is hoping that the display of popular enthusiasm for his leadership will persuade his visitors—and the world—that he indeed has the mandate to rule a reborn Ethiopia and remold it according to his vision.

Ethiopian rulers have a history of putting on carnivals while their people starve.

Abiy is ignoring the lesson that man-made famine discredits the men who make famine.

In 1973, while the Emperor Haile Selassie celebrated his eightieth birthday with an opulent party, peasants were dying of hunger in Wollo province. The imperial feudal system contributed to the famine and the Lion of Judah, King of Kings, Elect of God, refused to acknowledge it—though he tried to shift the blame to his subordinates for covering it up. Haile Selassie paid the price: the legitimacy of the Solomonic Dynasty wasted away and was overthrown the following year.

In 1984, the military regime of Colonel Mengistu Haile Mariam covered up the famine raging in Wollo and Tigray so as not to spoil the tenth anniversary celebrations of the revolution, which included a military parade in Revolution Square of newly-acquired Soviet weaponry. Mengistu’s government notoriously stated that “food is a major weapon” against insurgents in Tigray and Eritrea and restricted and manipulated humanitarian aid. Its efforts to deny aid to the famished directly led to a massive cross-border relief operation into the rebel-held areas. Mengistu decried that operation as a violation of Ethiopian sovereignty, but it came about precisely because of his own abuses that discredited the notion of untrammeled sovereignty, in favor of “sovereignty as responsibility” and the subsequent doctrine of the responsibility to protect.

Abiy is ignoring the lesson that man-made famine discredits the men who make famine.

Abiy’s sumptuous replica coronation cannot bring him the legitimacy he craves. Only stopping the war, ending the atrocities, freeing the opposition and feeding the hungry can deliver him that. If Abiy continues to spend his country’s scarce resources on fighting a war, it is not only Tigray that will face food crisis: scarcities will mount throughout the country, and hunger will even visit the capital Addis Ababa. This will be the sovereignty of the famished, jingoism with an empty stomach.

The link between war and hunger runs both ways. This was one of the fears expressed by the UN Security Council when it adopted resolution 2417 in May 2018: “Recognising the need to break the vicious cycle between armed conflict and food insecurity.”

As Ethiopia slides deeper into food insecurity it will become a more unstable and dangerous country. Humanitarian failure is already escalating the war in a direct fashion. The Tigrayan Defense Forces have taken the offensive, sending units beyond the boundaries of their region, saying they are determined to break the starvation siege by any means necessary. If the international community doesn’t bring aid to end famine in Tigray, Ethiopia and the whole Horn of Africa will face a widening war.

Guterres has protested the expulsions of his staff and demanded that Ethiopia allow them to continue their activities. He has pointed out that the formula of “persona non grata” does not apply to the UN and has asked for evidence for their alleged transgressions. But the Secretary General didn’t get the backing of the UN Security Council, which could not agree even on a timid statement at its meeting on Friday. Most likely, leaders didn’t want to spoil Abiy’s party or have their envoys feel awkward at the banquets tonight.

Such acceptance of Ethiopia’s fig-leaf of national sovereignty is not only morally wrong but politically dangerous too. The hunger plan of Abiy and Isaias doesn’t strengthen Ethiopia’s sovereignty or legitimize its ruler. On the contrary, while hunger kills Ethiopians, a monumental famine will likely kill Ethiopia.

“We have to deal with anyone who is still shooting,” said Getachew Reda, spokesperson for the Tigrayan forces, early this month. “If it takes marching to Addis to silence the guns, we will.” In fact, Tigray’s army has already covered about a third of the distance to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s capital, since it took back its own provincial capital, Mekelle, in late June.

The fighting has been bloody, for the Ethiopian army is much larger, but the Tigrayan army is more professional and determined. Not only has it liberated all of Tigray except the far west, but it has also seized around one-third of neighbouring Amhara, the province which is the historic core of the Ethiopian empire.

Seven million Tigrayans defeating the army of a country of 110 million people may seem odd, but Ethiopia is a patchwork quilt of different ethnic groups, languages and religions that was held together in the past by a centralised monarchy or dictatorship backed by ruthless military force. Until quite recently, it was Tigray that provided that force.

The Tigrayans earned that job by being the most effective guerrilla force in the long struggle to overthrow the former Communist regime, the Derg. They parlayed that role into an ethnic dictatorship that lasted from 1991 until just a few years ago. But the other ethnic groups then united to instal a new prime minister, Abiy Ahmed, who started to dismantle that corrupt autocracy.

He did it, but the Tigrayan military elite withdrew to their own homeland and sulked. It was a well-armed sulk, for almost half the Ethiopian army was based in Tigray and it consisted largely of ethnic Tigrayans. When it became clear that Abiy’s project to destroy the old ethnic pecking order was not negotiable, they rebelled.

This was all pretty inevitable, but then the Ethiopian prime minister decided to invade Tigray and end the problem for good. That was bound to end badly for Ethiopia, because he was making a direct attack on what is practically an African Sparta.

The Tigrayan army pulled out of the province’s cities for a while and by last November Abiy declared the war over. But the Tigrayan leaders were just mobilising their forces, and in June they counter-attacked. The Ethiopian forces broke and ran and most of Tigray was liberated without a fight.

If it had stopped there, some sort of Ethiopian state would have survived, albeit with a semi-detached Tigray, but Abiy then made the serious mistake of resorting to a blockade to starve the Tigrayans out. By now many people in landlocked Tigray are close to famine, but their leaders have countered with an invasion of Amhara province.

They are now within striking distance of the roads that carry 95% of the Ethiopia’s import and export traffic between Addis Ababa and the port of Djibouti. Their success has also emboldened the Oromo Liberation Army, a rebel army seeking autonomy or even independence for Ethiopia’s largest ethnic group, to make an alliance with the Tigrayans.

Suddenly, Ethiopia starts to look a lot like former Yugoslavia just before the civil wars of the 1990s split it into six different countries. Yet Abiy is rolling the dice once again, hoping to build a rapidly expanded army that will reconquer Tigray and occupied Amhara. That is unlikely to happen.

Abiy has a few new advantages, like the same sort of armed drones from Turkey that the Azerbaijanis used last year to tear the Armenian army apart in the recent war in the Caucasus. But the Ethiopian air force is in poor condition, as most of its experienced commanders and pilots were Tigrayan.

As for the expanded Ethiopian army, trained and seasoned troops like the Tigrayans will usually defeat almost any number of inexperienced and quickly trained volunteers. So if Abiy doesn’t win, what will happen instead?

If Abiy makes a quick deal with the Tigrayans that ends the blockade and recognises their independence and borders, he may have enough troops and credibility left to suppress the Oromos and other ethnic insurgents who will soon come out into the open. If not, Ethiopia probably splinters, and it’s Yugoslavia all over again.

And what would the Tigrayans do next? Some of them are confident enough to dream of invading Eritrea and taking down President Isaias Afwerki, who sent troops to help Abiy invade Tigray. Afwerki has ruled the country of 5,3 million with an iron hand for three decades, and he is so unpopular that one in 10 Eritreans has fled abroad.

Some of the Tigrayan elite may even be speculating about uniting the two countries. After all, half the Eritrean population speaks the same Tigrinya language and joining the two together would give Tigray access to the sea, which sometimes comes in handy.

It’s Time For Africa to Take a Stance Against Ethiopia’s Crimes

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 28, 2021

Alex de Waal

Under the banner of national sovereignty, Ethiopia is subverting Africa’s hard-won norms, principles and institutions.

Ethiopia is bringing Africa into disrepute and Africans should be outraged.

Ethiopian and Eritrean soldiers are killing and raping civilians in Tigray. Millions are facing starvation while the authorities choke off essential relief supplies. The European Union and the United States called for an end to the atrocities and access for humanitarian agencies. Addis Ababa’s defence is that national sovereignty protects its right to do these things.

On Sunday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced sanctions against Ethiopian officials held responsible for the violence and starvation. Thus far, these are just visa restrictions, alongside a suspension of most development and security assistance.

In response, Ethiopia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs put out a statement: “The attempt by the US administration to meddle in its [Ethiopia’s] internal affairs, is not only inappropriate but also completely unacceptable. Ethiopia should not be told how to run and manage its internal affairs.”

Some Africans appear to take at face value this appeal to African solidarity in the face of external diktat. That’s a mistake.

Under the banner of national sovereignty, Ethiopia is subverting Africa’s own hard-won norms, principles and institutions.

The same argument was trotted out in the 1970s and 1980s when African dictatorships used “sovereignty” as a shield behind which to oppress and exploit their people with impunity. At that time, the Organisation of African Unity stood up for untrammelled sovereign rights. Its reasoning was that the independence of African countries wasn’t secure: Apartheid South Africa, along with outgoing colonial powers and their mercenaries wanted to destabilise and divide African countries. That spelled African silence over Eritrea’s long struggle for independence – an inattention that undermined peace and stability in the region. There was also a growing chorus of dissent criticising the OAU’s whitewashing of military coups, massacres and man-made famines. It was “a trade union of heads of state,” in the words of Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere.

The refugee crisis was the biggest symptom of African governments’ loss of legitimacy in the eyes of their citizens: millions fled their misgoverned countries. Western nations paid the humanitarian aid bills and began to speak about intervening themselves – and actually did so in Somalia in 1992.

The turning point came in April 1994. That month saw the accomplishment of the OAU’s historic mission, when Nelson Mandela became president of South Africa following that country’s first ever democratic non-racial elections. It also saw the genocide in Rwanda, perpetrated without anything more than symbolic hand-wringing in Africa and globally. With the liberation of South Africa, the main justification for the deployment of unfettered sovereignty was gone, while Rwanda showed the bankruptcy of that doctrine.

Africans led the way in formulating new principles. The Sudanese scholar and diplomat Francis Deng developed the notion of “sovereignty as responsibility”: a government’s sovereign privileges extend only as far as it exercises its responsibility for the rights and welfare of its citizens. The OAU set up an International Panel of Eminent Personalities to examine the Rwanda crisis, which coined the “principle of non-indifference”: Africans should not stand by while one of their governments commits mass atrocities. In due course, this became enshrined in the Constitutive Act of the African Union, drafted in 2000 and adopted when the African Union formally took over from the OAU at a summit in Durban, South Africa, two years later. Article 4(h) provides for intervention in the case of “grave circumstances”, defined as war crimes, crimes against humanity or genocide.

These African initiatives were forerunners of the “responsibility to protect”, or R2P, adopted at the United Nations in 2001. Over the years, especially after R2P was invoked by NATO countries for regime change in Libya, many Africans came to see it as imperialism in philanthropic disguise.

By contrast, the African doctrine of non-indifference was crafted in the spirit of pan-Africanism. The vision of Kwame Nkrumah, the Pan-Africanist who led Ghana to independence in 1957, was that Africans are a single people whose struggle for freedom is one and the same. Sovereignty resides with the people, and is shared across the continent.

African peacemaking practice developed the duty to offer good offices for conflict resolution – along with an obligation of the country in conflict to accept them. African diplomats are proactive in peacemaking. It is now standard for the AU and African regional economic communities to respond to a crisis within days. When civil war broke out in South Sudan in December 2013, the foreign ministers of neighbouring countries flew to Juba within a week to press for a ceasefire. Compare that to the first civil war in Sudan (1955-72) when it took 16 years for an international peace effort and the second civil war (1983-2005) when it took eight years.

These peace efforts don’t always work, but it’s surely better than the alternative of allowing conflicts to rage on and escalate. For example, when a border war broke out between South Sudan and Sudan in April 2012, prompt action by the AU Peace and Security Council set out a road map for resolving the conflict. At that time the UN Security Council was deadlocked on almost every issue, but the US, China and Russia all deferred to the African position and adopted the PSC’s formula, word-for-word, in a Security Council resolution.

By comparison, United Nations envoys to Syria and Yemen were frustrated by the absence of a regional mechanism that could have established principles to contain those wars.

Ethiopia’s war in Tigray is a typical civil war: a political dispute that turned violent and became internationalised with Eritrean intervention. The best chance of containing the war was at the beginning before it escalated out of control. African leaders knew this instinctively. Within weeks of the outbreak of fighting in early November, the AU dispatched a team of three former heads of state as special envoys.

But Ethiopia did not play by Africa’s rules. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed rebuffed the AU, making sure that the Peace and Security Council – where Ethiopia sits as a member – did not discuss his war. In fact, he insisted it was only a “law enforcement operation”.

Abiy appears to be following the playbook of his coalition partner in the war in Tigray, Eritrean president Isaias Afwerki, that there should be no constraint on power. Afwerki has defied Africa and the world for decades with a dictatorship without constitution or rule of law. And Eritrea is Africa’s largest generator of refugees relative to its size.

With the AU impotent, Ethiopia’s crisis has gone to the United Nations. But the three African non-permanent members of the UN Security Council – Kenya, Niger and Tunisia – have not spoken out against the war or atrocities. Even when Ireland raised the situation in Ethiopia under the relatively uncontroversial resolution 2417 on armed conflict and hunger, the African representatives wavered. This opened the door for China and Russia to threaten to veto any resolution.

That’s Abiy’s strategy: his government’s statements about “foreign meddling” and “US imperialism” are aimed at winning over China and Russia. Those countries may step in and support him – but for their own interests, not Africa’s. Abiy has shown no regard for Africa and its wisdom. On the opening day of the AU’s February summit, Abiy published an article entitled Towards a peaceful order in the Horn of Africa. He didn’t once mention the AU or Africa’s norms, principles and institutions for peace.

Abiy’s appeal to sovereign impunity is having the exact opposite of its stated goal. Ethiopia faces a catastrophic famine and national crisis – and becoming a cockpit for global rivalries.

Africans should not stand for this. They must stand firm on Africa’s principles: sovereignty entails responsibility, unreserved condemnation of atrocities and starvation crimes, immediate negotiation among the belligerents for a political solution. Or Africa cannot complain if Europeans and Americans take those principles more seriously than they do.
